NeuroMetrix Announces Initial Commercial Shipment Of SENSUS™ Pain Management System

NeuroMetrix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NURO), www.neurometrix.com, a medical device company focused on the diagnosis and treatment of the neurological complications of diabetes, reported today that it had initiated commercial shipment of its SENSUS Pain Management System which received final FDA clearance on November 28, 2012. SENSUS is a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator intended for the symptomatic relief and management of chronic intractable pain. It offers physicians and their patients advanced nerve stimulation technology in a light weight, low profile device worn on the upper calf that is activated by the press of a single button.

“SENSUS was designed to address the clinical and lifestyle needs of people with diabetes. Therefore, we believe that physicians treating patients with painful diabetic neuropathy, a severe and debilitating form of chronic pain, may find SENSUS to be a useful therapeutic option,” said Shai N. Gozani M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of NeuroMetrix. “We are pleased to be partnering with a growing network of durable medical equipment suppliers who will be responsible for physician detailing, supplying product to patients, and insurance billing. This will allow us to focus on our areas of expertise which include product development, marketing programs, and clinical studies.”
