Neuspera® Raises $8M to Back Tiny, Injectable Neuromodulation Technology

NeuSpera® Medical had been working under the radar for some time on about $1 million in angel financing. Now, it's raised an $8 million Series A financing after bringing in a high-profile exec to lead its effort. The Santa Clara, CA-based startup is aiming for a futuristic field that already has substantial strategic interest: electroceuticals.

GlaxoSmithKline ($GSK) declared its interest in electroceuticals, also known as bioelectronics, a few years ago. The idea is that miniature devices can be used to modulate the electrical impulses in the body, thereby triggering biochemical processes that are more typically manipulated via biopharmaceuticals. The end game is to replace drug therapies by inducing the body to heal itself in major illnesses that could include diabetes, asthma, hypertension, arthritis, pain and even cancer.

The biopharma has put its money where its mouth is with a couple of financing initiatives including a $50 million venture fund. GSK has funded at least 33 electroceuticals, mostly in very early research stages.

NeuSpera® claims that its implant is more than 100 times smaller than other neuromodulation devices. It expects its miniaturized injectable neuromodulation technology could treat patients with chronic illnesses. Its small form factor is expected to reduce procedure complexity and time as well as patient complications and post-surgical pain. The tech is powered by the company's MidField technology.

It's not quite clear yet if NeuSpera® is aiming for the more traditional function of neuromodulation, pain management, with a smaller form factor--or if it's actually seeking to address tackle underlying disease processes. Either way, it's staked itself out as an electroceuticals company.

The company was founded in 2014 as Vivonda Medical. Last August, it brought in former Cyberonics SVP of R&D Milton Morris. He was first tasked with a Series A fundraising. Morris left Cyberonics in the shake-up after the $3 billion merger with Sorin to create LivaNova ($LIVN).

"It is a privilege to be in a position to positively impact human lives through medical technology--a privilege that I take seriously," said Morris in a statement when he was appointed as the startup's CEO. "NeuSpera™ has the opportunity to fundamentally change the way neuromodulation therapy is delivered. I look forward to realizing its great potential."

Adult Webcam Performer Tips - Make Your First $5000 http://live-cam-girls.ml/

The adult web cam market is the most lucrative opportunities
you'll find anywhere online today. As an web cam performer, you may
make per hour pay much like that of company executive; not only does it pay exceptionally well, but you'll
also gain a lot of time by not having to waste time commuting to be effective every day.

Male or female, start making a substantial amount of money working in the comfort of your own house,
with as low as 2 hours every day.
How much you'll make is determined by several factors including your physical attractiveness, your personality, and your willingness to do inside the private room.

New adult webcam performers can get to produce $2000
to $5000 in their initial month working as low as couple of hours day,
while top performing models could make over $20,000 monthly.


You might think that being a grownup webcam performer is easy work, but you don't have what must be done to become a
online model?
Below are the secrets of the pros to create a $5000.

Webcam Model Tip #1 - Have Fun
Don't think of it as work. Think of it as flirting. Get on camera
to get fun! Keep this most of your focus and you will have not a problem making a lot of money.

Webcam Model Tip #2 - Be Prepared
Never you could make your visitors wait. To stay on camera, keep the props, toys, or any changes for a outfit
in the area so you won't have to go "off cam" to look get something.

Webcam Model Tip #3 - Get Repeat Visitors
Letting your customers know when you'll be back online (whether or not it's hours from now and other day) is an easy supply of paying customers to come back for more!

And when you need to do set a time and date,
be sure to be on time. This helps build trust together with your customers, meaning more money to suit your needs.

Webcam Model Tip #4 - Use Visitors Name
In free chat, be sure you takes place customers' nickname.
Visitors need to find out you're chatting to them personally.
Also, learn their real names. Paying customers need to feel a psychological link to you.
Learning and memorizing names provide more repeat paying customers.

Webcam Model Tip #5 - Look Sexy
Wear makeup and also have flowing hair done. Also be sure to get a variety of
sexy lingerie, outfits, see through clothing,
etc. and change outfits every day to give customers variety.
Bright colors like red, orange, blue, green and pink have more customers, which means you should
also be matching the colours of your respective sheets/curtains
together with your clothing.

A Intelligent Way to seek out No cost Grownup Chat Rooms!


Chatting on the internet is hugely popular. The problem is there are hardly
any free adult boards where we are able to discuss adult topics.

Due to their popularity, website owners increasingly plan to charge to
the service. In this article, you will understand the best way to locate fairly easily countless
these chat communities, many of which are entirely free.

It is becoming difficult to find good places for adults
to chat. Most of this is due to the spread of instant messengers, virtual
worlds, and internet sites. The few good chat sites available usually are full or, worse still, full and intent on asking you to pay a subscription fee.

To most of us, it seems like the days of excellent, fun, lively
free places for adults on an adult chat have left.
Thankfully, there exists quite a clever way for us to
still find good rooms.
All with the big dating communities offer their members free adult forums.
Now, I'm sure you might be thinking, "Yes, that dating sites also impose a fee a membership because of these free rooms!" This is
not always the case. Many such chat communities cost nothing, others have
the freedom but have limited features to the non-paying members, while
others still provide a no cost service for females.
The attractiveness of joining a substantial, well-known dating community is
that you simply get given use of a huge adult chatting community which has hundreds, sometimes lots of people making use of it at anybody time.
Better yet, their rooms usually offer users a chance to hook inside their webcams.
So you could possibly be chatting away in the room and have the ability to visit an account and view them on their webcam, too!

The Positive Effects of Reiki on the Human Body

Reiki is known for its results about the human body. However, many individuals of
those that haven't yet experienced its power understand what exactly
Reiki does and what its effects are. If you are considering how Reiki can assist you, then read

Reiki stimulates the flow of positive energy, thus enabling the body to heal itself and fight the bodily and mental attacks more efficiently.

2. Cleans our bodies coming from all toxins.

one can possibly follow. In addition to that no involve refraining from food or some other type of activity.

3. Promotes health, positive thoughts and relaxation. The principles
of Reiki depend on positive thinking, thus a comfort and relaxation is induced to the individual.
By removing negative energy and promoting a feeling of peace,
the healing process is going to be easier and shorter, regardless of the illness or disease where the
individual suffers.
4. Works about the gastrointestinal system and raises the benefic effects of every thing an individual ingests,
from food and water to medicines and curative herbs.

Thus, it may be successfully used like a complementary therapy for all those already taking medicine, but as well it really is great
for maintain the consumer's health in good parameters.

5. Works on personal feelings, helping people get over negative experiences from their lives and dealing with unexpected or unpleasant situations using their lives.
People with depressions, anxieties or suffering from stress are able to see dramatic improvements of their
conditions as soon as the Reiki sessions.
6. Makes the transition from life to death much simpler.
It helps the soul transcend into immortality and our bodies feel less suffering from this transformation. This is why many Reiki adepts make use of the Ki to create
their transition in one world to a different smoother.


Reiki offers healing for many kinds of bodily conditions,
and for the spiritual problems. It is like a best
ally for all those those people in need of assistance, but it may also relieve healthy people from quotidian stress and problems.
