Nexstim Receives an NBS System Order from a University Hospital in Germany
Nexstim Plc (NXTMH:HEX, NXTMS:STO) ("Nexstim" or "Company") announces that it has received an NBS System order in Germany. The customer is a German university hospital and a new customer for Nexstim.
Nexstim NBS systems with SmartFocus® nTMS technology are mainly used for neurosurgical diagnostics: One of the most crucial pieces of information needed for neurosurgery or radiotherapy is the tumor’s or other lesion’s location in relation to the essential functions and their connections in the patient’s brain. SmartFocus® nTMS mapping with Nexstim’s NBS system can give this information regarding motor and speech areas — it can be invaluable when deciding the best treatment option.
Mikko Karvinen, CEO of Nexstim commented: “We are very happy about our continued success in expanding our NBS presence within the German university hospitals. This sale is a good start to the second half of the financial year. Along with recurring revenue from our existing installed base, new customers help us grow our business and make our technology available to more and more healthcare professionals and patients around the world.”
