Vagus Nerve Stimulation to Treat Multiple Sclerosis

This project focuses on developing a potential therapy for multiple sclerosis (MS) that promotes myelin repair and functional recovery. The proposed solution involves non-invasive transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation (taVNS) paired with motor tasks, aiming to drive neural plasticity in the brain. The project aims to perform device development activities to prepare for initial clinical studies and develop a commercialization plan for the paired-taVNS for MS, leveraging the team's expertise in device development, regulatory affairs, and clinical experience in treating MS patients.
