Established in 2000, BrainsGate is a medical device company committed to developing innovative therapies for patients suffering from Central Nervous System (CNS) diseases.
BrainsGate's platform technology involves electrical stimulation of the Spheno-Palatine Ganglion (SPG), a nervous center known to increase cerebral blood flow.
BrainsGate is exploring several applications for its technology, and is currently focusing on treatment of acute ischemic stroke.
Building on its technology, the Company has developed the ISS, based on a miniature electrode implanted at the roof of the mouth in a bed side, minimally invasive, local anesthesiaáprocedure comparable to dental treatment.
