(“MyndTec” or the “Company”) (CSE: MYTC), an emerging trailblazer in neurological rehabilitation, today announced that it has received from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) 510(k) clearance for MyndMove 2.0, its second generation neuromodulation MyndMove System.
“This is a very exciting time for the Company as we advance into the strategic re-launch of MyndMove devices in the United States through our distribution partner, LBB Applied Technology, LLC to offer clinicians a device that delivers effective therapy at clinic or home environments, without compromising patient comfort, through our proprietary design,” stated Craig Leon, CEO of MyndTec.

Co-founded in 2008 by Dr. Milos Popovic, MyndTec is a Canadian medical technology company dedicated to the development and commercialization of innovative products that improve function, maximize independence and enhance the quality of life for individuals who have suffered injury to the central nervous system as a result of stroke, spinal cord injury and certain traumatic brain injuries. The Company develops non-invasive neurological and nervous system electrical stimulation therapeutics for the treatment of neurological diseases and injury specifically targeted to markets with large, growing and global patient populations. The Company’s flagship product MyndMove™ is a non-invasive functional electrical stimulation-based intervention. MyndMove™ uses neuroplasticity
mechanisms to stimulate development of new neural efferent and afferent pathways allowing patients to re-establish voluntary movement and improve independence in their activities of daily living.
