(Nasdaq: HSDT) (“Helius” or the “Company”), a neurotech company focused on neurological wellness, today announced that an abstract highlighting real-world data, which shows the impact of translingual neurostimulation as a rehabilitation therapy to improve gait in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), has been selected for a poster presentation at the Consortium for Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) Annual Meeting taking place June 1-4 in National Harbor, Maryland.
“We are excited to share our real-world findings on neuromodulation to improve MS patients’ ability to walk steadily and safely,” said Antonella Favit-Van Pelt, MD, PhD, Helius Medical’s Chief Medical Officer. “Our findings show that neuromodulation stimulation is an effective rehabilitative intervention that is thought to engage mechanisms of upregulation and long-term potentiation, promoting neuroplasticity and improving gait functionality and mobility.”
