Smart Neuromodulation Technology

We are a medical technology startup developing a Vagus Nerve Stimulation system to boost health, taking advantage of digital technologies

OUR VISION

The activation of the Vagus Nerve by stimulating its auricular branch (aVNS) is an emerging technique in the field of bioelectronic medicine. We believe in the preventive and therapeutic potential of hybridize aVNS and digital technology.

We envision a digital aVNS system, that can be set up to address different clinical uses.

Vagus Neuromodulation System

OUR TECHNOLOGY

SMART Neuromodulation
for Vagus Nerve


We have developed a wireless earbud that stimulates the auricular branch of the vagus nerve in a safe, effective and comfortable way. Each earbud is custom made to the anatomy of the user’s ear and the stimulation treatments can also be personalized to the user’s needs.

European patent EP 19383020.5 in process.

CLINICAL USES

There is a large scientific and clinical evidence about the therapeutic potential of the Vagus Nerve electrostimulation in mental health (trauma and stress-related disorders, anxiety, depression…) neurology (epilepsy, migraine, tinnitus…) cardiology (atrial fibrillation), and metabolic syndrome, among others.

Our first product Xana is a medical device composed by an unique technology to treat stress-related disorders.
