Nexstim CEO Mikko Karvinen said: “In Germany, we have traditionally seen widespread interest towards our technology among neurosurgical professionals.

“We are happy to have such an established user community including key opinion leaders, and to see that there is continuing demand for combined system solutions in the German market.”

Nexstim’s portfolio also includes a non-invasive brain stimulation technology for navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS).

Its 3D navigation is claimed to provide accurate and personalised targeting of the TMS to the specific area of the brain.
