Neuros Medical was founded by Jon J. Snyder in Cleveland, OH in 2008 to develop a neurostimulation therapy to alleviate chronic pain.  The company’s Electrical Nerve Block™ technology is based on research done at Case Western Reserve University.

The company’s Nerve Block is an implantable device that delivers high-frequency stimulation to sensory nerves in the peripheral nervous system. Neuros’ aim is to stop a wide variety of chronic pain, including residual limb pain, chronic post surgical pain, and chronic migraine.

In November 2011 Neuros Medical announced that it has received IDE approval from the FDA to evaluate its technology for use in acute treatment of pain in the residual limb of amputees.
