Neuspera Medical, Inc. Completes Patient Enrollment and Implants for the SANS-UUI Pivotal Clinical Trial

The international study is evaluating the safety and efficacy of the Neuspera System for the treatment of urinary urge incontinence (UUI), a symptom of overactive bladder (OAB)

SAN JOSE, Calif.Dec. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Neuspera Medical, Inc., a neuromodulation company pioneering the Neuspera Implantable Sacral Neuromodulation (SNM) System, today announced it has completed patient enrollment and implant procedures for the pivotal clinical trial (SANS-UUI) of its Neuspera System, a discreet, minimally invasive implant designed to provide patients personal control and relief from urinary urge incontinence (UUI), a symptom of overactive bladder (OAB).

“We are pleased to have reached the target patient enrollment in our pivotal SANS-UUI trial,” said Steffen Hovard, CEO of Neuspera Medical. “The completion of patient implants builds on the progress and strong momentum from our previously reported positive clinical outcomes.”

The SANS-UUI multi-center, single-arm clinical study is designed to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the Neuspera System and gain U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval in the U.S. Patients were screened and implanted with the device at 26 centers across the U.S. and Europe.

“Completing patient enrollment and implants is an important milestone in Neuspera’s journey towards revolutionizing the way physicians utilize SNM therapy,” commented Dr. Steve Siegel, Chief Medical Officer of Neuspera Medical. “We’re grateful to the patients and physicians partnering with us in this study, and we look forward to finalizing the data that will support our FDA submission of the Neuspera System.”

OAB is a common medical disorder affecting roughly 1 in 6 adults. OAB symptoms include a sudden, uncontrolled need or urge to urinate, urine leakage, and/or the need to pass urine many times during the night and day. These symptoms can make it difficult to work, socialize, exercise and lead a normal, active life which can lead to depression, self-esteem and social stigma issues.

Neuspera’s unique system is designed to provide patients who have failed medication management a minimally invasive, more approachable way of benefiting from sacral neuromodulation, a clinically proven effective treatment that’s been used for more than 30 years to treat UUI associated with OAB.

The Neuspera System is the least invasive sacral neuromodulation device and includes an ultra-miniaturized pulse generator attached to an electrode array. It is designed to be discreet, to provide patients with freedom from inconvenient and visible batteries, and to empower them to regain control of their life.

“As the coordinating investigator for the SANS-UUI clinical trial, I’m excited at the prospects of the Neuspera System for treating patients with OAB symptoms in the least invasive manner,” said Dr. Osvaldo Padron with Florida Urology Partners.

The Neuspera System has FDA clearance for treating chronic pain of peripheral nerve origin and is undergoing clinical trials as an investigational device for the use of treating UUI, a symptom associated with OAB.

Neuspera Medical Receives Investigational Device Exemption for Its Ultra-Miniaturized Implantable Device

Regulatory Approval to Start Phase I of its Pivotal Trial


SAN JOSE, Calif.Dec. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Neuspera Medical Inc., a clinical stage, private, venture capital backed neuromodulation company, announced the receipt of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) from the FDA – enabling the company to conduct the first long-term clinical trial of its ultra-miniaturized neuromodulation platform. An MRI Conditional version of Neuspera’s wirelessly powered implant designed for use as a sacral nerve stimulator will be studied for treatment of Urinary Urge Incontinence (UUI) – a prevalent form of Over Active Bladder.

“The Neuspera team continues to take meaningful steps to bringing their novel technology platform to patients battling the symptoms of UUI,” said Adam Fine, Founder & Managing Partner of Windham Venture Partners – a major investor in Neuspera Medical.  “The Investigational Device Exemption marks a key milestone in the company’s lifecycle and speaks to the maturity of the medical device platform.  We look forward to more applications in the future.”

The Neuspera platform leverages proprietary power transfer methods that enable miniaturization of implantable devices – sometimes referred to as bioelectronic medicines.  Neuspera’s hermetically sealed implantable modules are more than 100 times smaller than traditional neuromodulation devices and is expected to reduce implant procedure complexity, patient post-surgical pain and complication.  Traditional neuromodulation devices require an implanted battery power source and are therefore larger and require more complex and invasive implantation procedures.

“Urinary Urge Incontinence can be a significant burden for patients who struggle daily with the perceived loss of control and the unpredictable nature of the condition,” said Milton M. Morris, Ph.D., President & CEO of Neuspera.  “The approval to conduct our clinical trial in this important and underserved population of patients is a key step toward our goal of improving their care and outcome.”
