    Axonics® Receives Technology Innovation Award from Medtech Insight

    Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc., developer of the first rechargeable Sacral Neuromodulation (r-SNM™) system for the treatment of urinary and bowel dysfunction, announced today that the Axonics r-SNM System was awarded the “Best Technological Innovation, Therapeutic Device” at the 2018 Medtech Insight Awards in partnership with the MedTech Conference being held this week in Philadelphia.

    The Medtech Insight Awards highlight dedication and innovation within medical device and diagnostics, and the Axonics r-SNM System was recognized by the esteemed judging panel as “a major technological improvement in a validated market.”

    “Axonics is honored by this recognition for the technological innovation of the Axonics r-SNM System,” said Raymond W. Cohen, Chief Executive Officer of Axonics. “This award is a testament to the diligence and ingenuity employed by our team over the last 4 years to develop and clinically validate a miniaturized, long-lived rechargeable SNM system.”

    Axonics is currently conducting a pivotal study, ARTISAN-SNM, under an Investigational Device Exemption for urinary dysfunction designed to gain Food & Drug Administration (FDA) marketing approval in the United States upon completion of the study and review by the FDA. In June 2018, Axonics announced completion of enrollment for the pivotal study and expects all subjects to reach the 6-month primary endpoint at the end of 2018.
