NeuroPace ranked #9 Holder of Pervasive Neurotech Intellectual Property*

NeuroPaceNeu­roPace is a pri­vate­ly held com­pa­ny whose main prod­uct is the RNS (respon­sive neu­rostim­u­la­tion) Sys­tem for treat­ment of refrac­to­ry epilep­sy. Respon­sive neu­rostim­u­la­tion is a tech­nique where­by a set of elec­trodes detects the like­ly onset of an epilep­tic episode and applies stim­u­la­tion to the brain to pre­vent the episode. The pri­ma­ry appli­ca­tion of RNS is inva­sive and requires sur­gi­cal implan­ta­tion of the elec­trodes direct­ly on the brain or with­in the brain. How­ev­er, Neu­roPace’s patent port­fo­lio cov­ers both inva­sive tech­niques (ECoG) and non­in­va­sive (EEG, mag­net­ic stimulation).
