ECOR Stock’s Patent
July 27th, 2021 announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted ECOR stock U.S. Patent No. 11,065,444. The patent issued to the commercial-stage bioelectronic medicine company is in regard to the use of a mobile phone for the stimulation of the trigeminal nerve to treat disorders. The new patent is owned by the company and is the most recent U.S patent to be issued in connection with the company’s development of non-invasive solution programs for pain.
The newly issued patent includes descriptions of devices and methods that can be used by patients themselves to treat medical conditions, such as migraine headaches, with non-invasive means. ECOR stock achieves this by the electrical stimulation of nerves in the head, particularly supraorbital, supratrochlear, infraorbital, and mental nerves in the general area of patients’ foramen or notch.
About the Treatment
The system consists of a handheld mobile device, like a smartphone, that is applied to the surface of the head of the patient being treated. Electrical impulses are applied through the patient’s skin via one or more electrodes, serving to modulate a targeted nerve to treat the medical condition. ECOR stock’s system aims to provide patients with a self-treatment solution in the absence of a medical professional.
Expansive Scope of Treatment
ECOR stock is keen to continue the advancement of its non-invasive treatment solutions for its patients. The new development massively increases the scope of the reach and accessibility by which the company’s therapy may be deployed. This facilitates more patients all over the world to get the relief they need while not having to leave the comfort of their homes. This is line with the company’s vision of improving patient outcomes with its nerve stimulation therapy platform, which initially focused on the treatment of various neurological conditions.
Future Outlook for ECOR Stock
Armed with the security of the patenting of its proprietary technology, ECOR stock is poised to capitalize on the opportunities and tenure afforded to it over the long term. The company is keen to spearhead market penetration in an effort to usher in significant and sustained increases in shareholder growth.
