Unmet Clinical Need

Ventricular Tachycardia storm is characterized by recurrent ventricular arrhythmias occurring within a 24-hour period. This condition is associated with high morbidity, mortality, and substantial heath care resource utilization. The current standard of care includes:

  • Surgical removal of sympathetic nerves innervating the heart – this is effective but there is a high morbidity rate associated with this surgery.
  • Injection or catheterization to deploy stellate ganglion blocks – associated with damage to nearby structures (i.e. veins, arteries, organs) and repeat procedures are required.

Proposed Healthcare Solution

A transcutaneous magnetic stimulation device designed to be worn around the neck, providing consistent low-frequency magnetic pulses that target the stellate ganglion
