About NeuroMetrix NeuroMetrix is an innovative medical device company that develops and markets home use and point-of-care devices, associated consumables, and support software for the treatment and management of diabetes and its complications. The company is focused on nerve related complications of diabetes, called diabetic neuropathies, which affect over 50% of people with diabetes. If left untreated, diabetic neuropathies trigger foot ulcers that may require amputation, cause disabling pain, and increase the risk of falling in the elderly. The annual cost of diabetic neuropathies has been estimated at $14 billion in the United States. The company's products are used by physicians and other clinicians, in retail health settings such as pharmacies, and by managed care organizations to optimize patient care and reduce healthcare costs. The company markets the NC-stat(R) DPNCheck(TM) device, which is a rapid, accurate, and quantitative point-of-care test for diabetic neuropathy. This product is used to detect diabetic neuropathy at an early stage and to guide treatment. The company is in late stage development of SENSUS(TM), a pain management device that will be used to treat painful diabetic neuropathy, a form of chronic intractable pain. Currently, painful diabetic neuropathy is treated pharmacologically, which is a $2 billion annual market. The company has additional therapeutic products in its pipeline.
