Neuros Medical may have the cure for phantom limb pain
Neuros Medical Inc. may have the cure for phantom limb pain.
By zapping a bundle of damaged nerves with quick bursts of electricity, the Willoughby company can eliminate all or most of the pain that remains long after someone loses a limb, according to results from two clinical trials.
Granted, both trials were small — combined, they included only 15 patients — and the second trial isn't quite finished.
The results have been so consistent that Neuros Medical's many investors could have the option of selling the company before it starts enrolling patients in a much larger pivotal trial, said Stephen Haynes, CEO of Glengary LLC, a venture capital firm in Beachwood that is one of Neuros Medical's many local investors.
