PIONEERING THE USE OF BIOELECTRONIC MEDICINE
RESTORING BALANCE BY ACTIVATING THE BODY'S INNATE MECHANISM
SetPoint Medical defines bioelectronic medicine as the use of precise electrical pulses to treat chronic diseases. Bioelectronic medicine differs from traditional neuromodulation therapies by addressing the underlying pathophysiology to provide a potential cure for the disease versus simply masking the symptoms of disease.
THE ESSENTIAL ROLE OF THE INFLAMMATORY REFLEX / VAGUS NERVE
Rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and heart disease all share a common cause: Inflammation.
The Inflammatory Reflex is the body’s innate autonomic reflex that detects and responds to cytokine production and inflammation via the vagus nerve to restore balance to the immune system. SetPoint’s approach has been shown to suppress inflammatory cytokines by 30-70% without eliminating the bioavailability, thereby reducing inflammation with the potential to be less immunosuppressive.
BREAKTHROUGH ADVANCES IN BIOENGINEERING
Improved understanding of the nervous system and advances in electrical engineering have led to novel and effective use of active, implantable medical devices. Recent advances in microchip development, increased power storage and far-field wireless energy transfer for charging have accelerated technological progress, further miniaturizing implantable bioelectronic devices.
SETPOINT MEDICAL'S PROPRIETARY PLATFORM
SetPoint Medical’s bioelectronic medicine platform is intended to offer patients and providers a treatment alternative for rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and other chronic autoimmune conditions with potentially less risk and cost than drug therapy
