ShiraTronics Announces Landmark Achievement: World’s First Implant of its Innovative Chronic Migraine System

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- ShiraTronics, Inc., a trailblazing clinical-stage medical device company, today announced a landmark achievement with the successful implantation of its Chronic Migraine System in the world's first six patients. This remarkable milestone represents a significant leap forward in neuromodulation, as the company unveils the first-ever fully implantable system for head location utilizing a minimally invasive approach.

Migraine, globally recognized as the second leading cause of disability and the primary cause among pre-menopausal women, remains a considerable health issue. For approximately 2% of the world’s population, migraine frequency escalates to chronic attacks, subjecting individuals to debilitating symptoms such as intense headaches, nausea, and sensitivity to light for a minimum of 15 days each month, detrimentally impacting their overall quality of life. Existing treatments often offer limited relief, underscoring the significant need for innovative solutions. In response, ShiraTronics has developed a system engineered specifically to address the debilitating symptoms faced by these patients.

Lynn Elliott, Co-Founder of ShiraTronics, reflects on the remarkable journey, “It is gratifying and humbling to witness the evolution of this innovative approach to treating chronic migraine. Originating as a visionary concept by a creative group of physicians, it has now materialized into a tangible reality that has the potential to restore quality of life to many enduring this debilitating condition.”
