United Kingdom National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Publishes Interventional Procedure Guidance (IPG) for ReActiv8® Restorative Neurostimulation ™

Share

Mainstay Medical Holdings plc announced today that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), a public body of the Department of Health that carries out evidence-based health technology assessments by independent committees, has issued a recommendation that ReActiv8® Restorative Neurostimulation™ can be used in the National Health Service in the U.K., with special arrangements for clinical governance, consent, and audit or research. ReActiv8 is currently the only technology offering restorative neurostimulation to the NHS for refractory mechanical chronic low back pain (CLBP).

“U.K. physicians have some of the most extensive experience with ReActiv8 globally. We are thankful to NICE for recognizing this experience, as well as the substantial body of global evidence we have developed in support of the efficacy and safety of this ground-breaking therapy, “ said Jason Hannon, CEO of Mainstay Medical. “This new guidance will enable patients to have greater access to the therapy when previous treatment options have not proven successful. We look forward to supporting physicians across the U.K. going forward and to continued improvement in patient outcomes.”

“Historically, mechanical CLBP pain therapies were aimed at only managing the symptoms, which is the pain associated with this pathology,” said Dr. Ganesan Baranidharan, Consultant in Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. “ReActiv8 is the only therapy available I am aware of where patients with many years of CLBP actually reverse and effectively rehabilitate their condition durably over a long period of time. ReActiv8 targets the cause of mechanical CLBP, not just the symptoms. The new NICE guidance is a major victory for patients and clinicians, which further confirms the positive patient outcomes we have seen to date. This new guidance will allow more patients to gain access to ReActiv8 within the U.K. and further afield.”

Survey Reveals Tech Trust Gap Amongst UK Bank Customers3.10.2022 15:38:00 CEST | Press release

New research by Mitek, a global leader in digital identity and digital fraud prevention, and YouGov has found that banking customers’ trust in technology remains low in the United Kingdom. Only half (52%) of UK bank customers feel that technology like artificial intelligence (AI) and biometrics positively impacts their trust in banks, and only 5% would prefer all interactions with AI/automated systems when engaging banks. These findings are based on a survey of more than 2,200 adults across age groups and UK regions. The industry has undergone a rapid digital transformation in the last few years, with Gartner predicting IT spending by banking and investment services firms growing by 6.1% by end of 2022, to US$623 billion worldwide. While nearly eight in 10 (79%) customers are satisfied with their bank’s digital experience (rating it “good”, “very good”, “or “excellent”), banks are in danger of facing a market-driven stalemate in their research and development should the tech trust gap
