Revolutionary Therapies for People with SCI

ONWARD Medical NV CEO, Dave Marver, will deliver a lecture on the company’s efforts to develop and commercialize therapies to restore movement and function after spinal cord injury (SCI). His talk will cover use of the company’s ARC-IM Therapy to restore movement in conjunction with an implanted brain-computer interface (BCI). It will also cover therapies that are expected to reach the clinic in the near term, such as the company’s ARC-EX Therapy which delivers transcutaneous electrical spinal cord stimulation to restore upper extremity strength and function, and the company’s standalone ARC-IM Therapy which is being evaluated for its ability to address blood pressure dysregulation after SCI. Mr. Marver will discuss the company’s ability to scale and bring these novel therapies into the clinic while also discussing the challenges associated with building an enterprise that is focused on therapies for SCI.
