WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
NeuroMetrix, Inc. (NURO), a medical device company focused on the treatment and management of chronic pain, peripheral neuropathies, and related neurological disorders, today announced that it will exhibit at the annual fall Medtrade trade show and conference on October 8-10 in Orlando. Medtrade is the largest home medical equipment (HME) tradeshow and conference in the US. It brings together hundreds of HME manufacturers and thousands of durable medical equipment (DME) providers with home health care professionals for an annual product review and sourcing opportunity. The SENSUS™ Pain Management System will be presented in the “Product Spotlight” at the Medtrade New Product Pavilion.
SENSUS is a convenient and wearable non-invasive electrical nerve stimulator that offers patients a fast-acting, non-narcotic option for relief from chronic pain.
