POMPANO BEACH, FLORIDA (February 20, 2019)
– Stimwave Technologies, the leading innovator of wireless medical device bioelectronic technology, has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2019.
The list honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today’s volatile world. Half of the companies on this year’s MIC 50 list are appearing for the first time.
“We are honored and humbled to be named by Fast Company in their prestigious list of innovative thought leaders. Stimwave’s team and clinicians are what enable our ability to change the lives of so many people in pain throughout the world with our breakthrough technology,” said Laura Tyler Perryman, Founder and CEO of Stimwave.
Stimwave offers the world’s only wireless micro-sized device cleared by the FDA to treat chronic neuropathic pain throughout the body, from back and leg pain addressed by spinal cord stimulation to peripheral nervous system (PNS) treatment for shoulder pain, wrist and elbow pain, knee pain, hip pain and more, allowing more patients to be treated than ever before with a viable, affordable alternative to help fight opioid usage across the country.
Representing a life-changing technological breakthrough for the more than 400 million people worldwide who endure daily chronic pain, the Stimwave Freedom Stimulators are also the smallest neuromodulation devices available, at a volume size of 0.25 cc compared to the next smallest form factors at 25 cc and greater – 100 times the footprint of Stimwave.
