ElectroCore said yesterday it won a five-year Federal Supply Schedule Medical Equipment and Supply Contract with the U.S. Federal Government.
Through the newly awarded contract, the Basking Ridge, N.J.-based company will supply its GammaCore non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation therapy to the Dept. of Veteran’s Affairs, the Dept. of Defense, the Bureau of Prisons, Indian Health Services and Public Health Services.
The Basking Ridge, N.J.-based company’s GammaCore device is a non-invasive, hand-held vagus nerve stimulation device designed for the reduction of pain. The system is intended to be applied to the neck and applies a patented electrical stimulation through the skin to activate the vagus nerve.
“ElectroCore continues to focus on making GammaCore affordable, accessible and broadly available. With the FSS contract, we will deepen our commitment to the underserved patient population diagnosed with migraine or cluster headache, and are one step closer to ensuring patients who may benefit from gammaCore have access to this safe and effective therapy,” CEO Frank Amato said in a press release.
Last November, ElectroCore said that it won expanded FDA 510(k) clearance for its GammaCore system, now cleared for adjunctive use for the preventive treatment of cluster headaches in adult patients.
