Latest NexTalk Europe newsletter

HELSINKI, Finland – Aug. 20, 2013 -- The August 2013 digital version of our European customer and partner newsletter, Nextalk, can now be read on our website. In this edition, we highlight the recent webinar on the use of NBS mapping results for radiosurgical planning and the launch of our new Patient Resource Center.

Regarding clinical publications and presentations, we focus on a "landmark" study using NBS for speech mapping at the UCSF, as well as two abstracts on the use of NBS for stroke rehabilitation therapy, recently presented at ECS 2013. McGill University, Canada has validated a protocol for the comparison of repetitive TMS (rTMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) as additional therapies to standard physical rehabilitation. Their initial results showed that unlike sham stimulation and tDCS, navigated 1Hz rTMS improves motor function after stroke.

We also report on the positive results from the very first customer satisfaction survey made on Nexstim and the NBS System. And Oulu University Hospital, Finland demonstrated their satisfaction with the value of NBS by already acquiring a second system.
