Since starting as CEO of Stimwave in April 2020, Aure Bruneau has brought a new vision, energy and focus to the Company. In the last 12 months, the former Zimmer Biomet executive has been positioning Stimwave for growth, building a high performing team and rebuilding the foundation of the Company, touching almost every aspect of the business, including regulatory, quality, manufacturing operations, marketing, IT, compliance and R&D. Strategically, Bruneau has refined the Company’s spinal cord stimulation (SCS) strategy and shifted efforts toward peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) where he believes the technology will have a more meaningful impact and a market opportunity as big as the existing SCS market. In fact, he estimates the PNS opportunity to be at least $1.5 billion to treat chronic pain just for selected musculoskeletal indications (shoulders, knees, feet, ankles and the SI joint).
Looking ahead, Stimwave is planning to launch new products and a series of clinical trials in 2021 to validate a new standard of care that will help take the Company’s PNS platform to the next level and help drive future growth.
