Press release, Helsinki, 24 May 2022 at 12:30 PM (EEST)
Nexstim Plc (NXTMH:HEX, NXTMS:STO) ("Nexstim" or "Company") has received an order for two NBS 5 systems from a university hospital in Finland. The customer is an experienced user of the Nexstim NBS 4 system, now acquiring the two new systems to replace the old system and to increase capacity.
Nexstim’s NBS (Navigated Brain Stimulation) system is used, for example, in planning neurosurgery or radiation therapy after a patient has had a diagnosis of a brain tumor or other disorder. When the lesion is predicted to be close to functional areas of the brain—such as those responsible for speech production and limb movement —the brain maps generated with NBS can be invaluable when deciding the best, personalized treatment option for the patient. These specific NBS systems also include the software of an NBT® (Navigated Brain Therapy) system, allowing the systems to also be used for the treatment of major depression and chronic neuropathic pain.
Mikko Karvinen, CEO of Nexstim, comments: “We have been happy to see continued interest towards our technology among new and existing customers in our home market in Finland. It is important for us to maintain and grow these university hospital customer relationships, among others, to provide our customers with the best possible solutions for diagnosing and treating patients with challenging brain diseases and disorders.”
