NeuroGyn AG - Winner of the "Swiss Technology Award 2014 - Category "Inventors
The approaches in pelvic neuromodulation range from the treatment of pain and bladder/rectomy disorders (incontinence, irritable bladder) to the restoration of gait in paraplegics. They are all based on the fact that current impulses are specifically delivered to nerves via electrodes in order to change their activity. NeuroGyn's LION procedure is based on a groundbreaking invention: the placement of electrodes on the pelvic nerves using laparoscopy.
