Presenter: Neal Howard
Guest Bio: Mark Borsody, MD, PhD is the Chief Medical Officer of Nervive Inc. He is a stroke neurologist and inventor of the VitalFlow stimulator with 20 years of preclinical and clinical neuroscience research experience and 6 years executive experience in stroke pharmaceutical R&D and medical affairs.

Segment overview: Nervive, Inc. has a simple and safe non-invasive medical device to emergently treat ischemic stroke – the VitalFlow stimulator. The VitalFlow increases blood flow to the brain by stimulating the facial nerve with pulsed magnetic energy; a novel magnetic stimulation coil has been developed by Nervive to specifically stimulate the facial nerve without stimulating the overlying brain. Nervive has 7 patent applications in various stages of review and its first patent has been granted. By the end of 2016, Nervive expects to have an initial version of the VitalFlow available for the intensive care unit market through a co-development partnership. Thereafter, the VitalFlow will be placed in hospital emergency departments and, as a smaller second version of the device, into ambulances.
