The Evolution of a Groundbreaking Neurostimulator
The startup Autonomic Technologies Inc. (ATI; Redwood City, CA) was founded to provide relief to patients suffering from severe headaches: migraines and cluster headaches. Cluster headaches can cause the worst pain that a person can experience according to Peter Goadsby, a neurologist and headache specialist at the University of California, San Francisco. Making matters worse for cluster headache sufferers is that they typically have a higher frequency of attack than those suffering from migraine headaches. In addition, there are few treatments available for cluster headache. Migraine headaches are a more common, if less severe, ailment, affecting roughly 28 million people in the United States alone.
Caution: The ATI Neurostimulation System is CE marked to relieve the acute pain of cluster headache. The ATI Neurostimulation System is not available in the United States.
