Shai N. Gozani, President and CEO of NeuroMetrix commented,
In both the DPNCheck and Quell business lines, they made steady progress. NURO believes that they are establishing the foundation for long-term top-line development. In June, it was very satisfying to present the Quell fibromyalgia findings to international pain medicine specialists and to earn FDA Breakthrough Device Designation. They’re excited to see this initiative progress toward a commercial launch in 2022.
