NeuroOne® Successfully Completes Initial Animal Implant of Novel Thin Film Paddle Lead for Spinal Cord Stimulation
Company is also developing a percutaneous (through a needle) delivery system for paddle leads
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., March 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: NMTC) (“NeuroOne” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on improving surgical care options and outcomes for patients suffering from neurological disorders, today announced the successful completion of an initial animal implant of its novel thin film paddle leads for spinal cord stimulation. The devices are intended for the treatment of patients with chronic back pain due to multiple failed back surgery syndrome, intractable low back and leg pain.
The study evaluated the feasibility of implanting a variety of sizes and shapes of ultra-thin paddle leads in a sheep model. A mini laminectomy surgical approach was used to gain access to the epidural space for device placement. All devices were easily advanced to the target location in under one minute. A competitive silicone-based lead was also placed for comparison purposes. The NeuroOne lead fit comfortably in the epidural space and the veterinary surgeon reported no concerns regarding the placement of the lead.
These results demonstrated feasibility for placement of a thin film paddle lead intended to treat chronic back pain due to multiple failed back surgeries. More testing will be completed to optimize the design and placement. The Company is also developing a percutaneous (through a needle) paddle lead placement system which would eliminate the need for an incision in the patient’s back. The preliminary bench top testing for this percutaneous approach has also been successfully completed.
Dave Rosa, CEO of NeuroOne, commented, “This represents a major milestone for the Company as we continue our development of innovative devices that provide therapeutic properties coupled with recording capabilities. The market opportunity for spinal cord stimulation is large and growing. We believe our technology can fill a market need for improved patient outcomes due in part to its potential ability to place a paddle device through a needle, provide a larger stimulation surface area of the spinal cord, better conformability with the tissue and improve battery life of devices, reducing the frequency of patient’s need to recharge or replace the battery.”
Evo® Cortical ElectrodeNeuroOne offers a breakthrough thin-film electrode for the diagnosis of various neurological conditions. Evo’s high- definition, minimally invasive technology delivers major advantages over the limitations of legacy silicone-based electrodes, hampered by the lack of innovation and progress in electrode technology, that are still widely used today.o Over 7 times thinner and 8 times lighter than comparable silicone electrodes used in legacy products. o Flexibility, thinness, and reduced weight facilitates potential for minimally invasive placement.o Reduced inflammation as compared to silicon-based legacy electrodes based on published testing by Mayo.Evo cortical electrode technology has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA for recording, monitoring, and stimulating brain tissue for up to 30 days.
Evo® sEEG Electrode
The Evo sEEG electrode technology offers stereoelectrocencephalography recording, spinal cord stimulation, brain stimulation and ablation solutions. The first clinical case using the Evo sEEG electrode was recently performed by Dr. Robert Gross at Emory University for intraoperative brain mapping at the subsurface level of the brain.

Brain Monitoring – Understanding What Allows Us To Sense, Move, Think And Feel
86 BILLION NEURONS
Neurons communicate through electrical and chemical signals. The specific properties of the neurons composing a brain area and their connections with neurons in other brain areas, define the function of a brain area (e.g. language, vision, movement).
Monitoring Neural Activity
THEY CAN RECORD ELECTRICAL SIGNALS
There are different ways to record and monitor neural activity. Their solution is to provide electrodes that are placed on top of or within the brain and capture the activity of a group of neurons located underneath/around each contact. The signals recorded are called intracranial electroencephalogram (iEEG) or electrocorticography (ECoG) signals. The shape, amplitude and frequency of these electrical signals provide a readout of the activity of that brain area.
Monitoring Neurological Disorders
Neurological diseases may be associated with disturbances in neural activity and connectivity between brain areas. The changes in the shape, amplitude and frequency of recorded electrical signals may be used to identify areas with altered activity.
Epilepsy is the disease associated with spontaneously recurring seizures. A seizure is a sudden, uncontrolled electrical disturbance in the brain. It can cause changes in behavior, movements or feelings, and in levels of consciousness. There are different types of seizures and their characterization and classification helps guide the treatment.
There are more than twenty seven FDA-approved drugs for the treatment of seizures. However, in ~1/3 of the patient’s medication fails to control their seizures. These patients are candidates for surgical options.
Evo® Cortical Electrode
Cortical or subdural electrodes are used in electrocorticography (ECoG) or intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG) surgeries to monitor, record and stimulate the surface of the brain for up to 30 days. The company’s Evo cortical electrode portfolio consists of various contact configurations of strip and grid electrodes. (Rx only)
The Evo Advantage
Decreased Immunological Response – The Evo Electrode is over 7 times thinner than a silicone electrode. The flexibility and reduced volume should reduce pain and edema.
The Evo’s polyimide substrate has properties like increased flexibility, reduced volume, and decreased immunological response, which should reduce signal artifacts.
Single Tail Design – The single thin tail design allows the implanted electrode tail to be tunneled through one incision which should reduce infection risk and procedure time.
Reduced Cable Management – A disposable cable assembly is sent with each Evo Electrode as an electrode kit, removing the need to source the correct cables for each electrode being used in surgery. Also, hospital resources are freed from the management of sterilizing and storing individual electrode cable assemblies.
How NeuroOne’s Thin Film Electrode Technology is Different
In comparison to currently available technologies, our electrodes are manufactured with polyimide thin film. Our electrodes are designed to reduce trauma to the brain by allowing a less invasive implant due to the flexibility, thinness and reduced weight of the electrode.
Furthermore, the potential to significantly increase the resolution of brain recordings may enable the usage of powerful computing techniques, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence.
