Neuromodulation is an emerging therapy being applied to treat conditions such as chronic pain, headaches and tremors, using mild electrical pulses to stimulate targeted nerves inside the body. Axonics Modulation Technology was poised to be a leader in neuromodulation with a class-leading nerve stimulation device—just one-third of the size of similar devices, and with a rechargeable battery that lasts a decade longer. The start-up needed help envisioning the application of its treatment and commercializing its amazing technology.
Our research found an unmet need in the treatment of urinary and fecal dysfunction. We transformed an innovative technology into a complete ecosystem of physical and digital products that improve the experience of people suffering from incontinence. Axonics’s system has the industry’s first portable inductive charging device, giving patients the freedom to move. A handheld remote lets them inconspicuously adjust stimulation levels and check battery status. We also simplified the implant programming process for doctors with a lightweight programmer, built from the ground up to be helpful, simple and intuitive.
