ELECTROCEUTICAL COIN (eCoin)
Based on low-duty cycle, non-constant stimulation, Valencia invented a tiny, coin-sized and shaped neurostimulator to be placed subcutaneously in a short office or outpatient procedure. No more lead-wires to be tunneled to the target from a remote fatty pocket holding the electronics. Valencia’s electroceutical is placed just over the target.
Several years ago, Valencia filed patent applications that were kept secret under old patent law until publication in 2014. Today, Valencia has seventeen issued patents for its innovative ideas and more than a dozen patent applications pending.
The first application for Valencia’s platform eCoin is hypertension. In fact, eCoin has shown promising interim results in a rigorous clinical trial and Valencia is now preparing to test eCoin in a large US trial for FDA approval. Valencia intends eCoin to be the first FDA approved, non-drug therapy for hypertension.
