NeuSpera, formerly known as Vivonda Medical, is developing injectable neuromodulation devices, so called “electroceuticals,” using licensed mid-field powering technology. The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company says its implantable module is 100 times smaller than other neuromodulation devices. NeuSpera said it’s raised more than $1 million in angel funding so far.
“We are delighted to welcome Milton as NeuSpera’s president & CEO,” NeuSpera chairman Bing Yeh said in prepared remarks. “Bringing with him over 23 years of rich experience in the medical device industry, Milton is a dynamic leader and a talented executive with a proven track record of driving technology innovation and business growth. For the past several months, Milton has been working with the company as a consultant. Under his guidance, the team has made great progress and is now ready to take the next step in addressing the milestones targeted for Series A financing. I am confident that Milton has the leadership qualities and industry experience to propel NeuSpera forward.”
“I am excited to be leading NeuSpera Medical – a young, fast-moving company with a truly innovative technology,” added Morris, who was already a member of the company’s board. “It is a privilege to be in a position to positively impact human lives through medical technology – a privilege that I take seriously. NeuSpera has the opportunity to fundamentally change the way neuromodulation therapy is delivered. I look forward to realizing its great potential.”
