PROFILE

We are a medical device software company headquartered in Indianapolis, IN. We have specific expertise in developing and deploying closed-loop control solutions for 3rd-party implantable and over-the-counter neurostimulators. Our EXACT™ therapy solutions transform an arduous device-programming interface from a complicated set of adjustable stimulus parameters to a simple set of dials that directly control nerve activity. EXACT™ automatically selects the optimal stimulus waveform to ensure a constant physiological response, eliminating uncertainty for physicians and end users. EXACT™ unlocks the potential of neurostimulators that have remained virtually unchanged for well over a decade and opens new markets for disease management tools that may be purchased without a prescription. DFTx targets chronic pain, urinary incontinence, inflammation, autonomic imbalance, heart failure, high blood pressure and bronchospasm.
