Start-Up News

Noteworthy news from medtech start-ups. This month's we feature Aleva Neurotherapeutics, whose electrodes enable precise and target-specific deep brain stimulation, and cermaVEIN, which is developing steam ablation technology for treating varicose veins.

Aleva Neurotherapeutics SA

The electrode leads used for deep brain stimulation to treat such conditions as Parkinson’s disease, depression and essential tremors have become a lot smarter, thanks to technology developed by Switzerland’s Aleva Neurotherapeutics SA. The company’s microDBS platform is an evolution of micro-electro-mechanical systems that allows for precise stimulation of targeted brain tissue, leaving the adjacent region unaffected.


Technology originally developed for one of the most sophisticated and advanced active implantable medical devices - cochlear implants - has been key to the development of 3WIN NV's deep brain stimulation device. The Flemish start-up's neurostimulator Synapse is designed to reduce collateral stimulation through the precise delivery of an electrical charge; as well as record the neural response to better target therapy for movement disorders.
