This was a highly competitive process, and NeuroSigma was selected as one of seven companies from almost 100 applicants,” said Colin Kealey, M.D., President and CEO of NeuroSigma. “We look forward to working with KidsX over the coming months to introduce their network to the Monarch eTNS System as a novel treatment for pediatric ADHD and on commencing a Phase I clinical trial of the Monarch eTNS System as a treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).”

“Pediatric mental and behavioral health remains a steadfast focus area for our KidsX hospital consortium, so we’re always looking for novel, innovative solutions to accelerate through our program. Our KidsX team couldn’t imagine a better fit to address our hospitals’ needs this year than NeuroSigma,” said Deepa Shah, Head of Operations and Strategy, KidsX and Senior Manager, Innovation Programs at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
