We are a medical device company, incorporated in 1987, engaged in the design,
development, sale and marketing of an implantable medical device, the VNS
Therapy� System, that delivers a unique therapy, vagus nerve stimulation (�VNS�)
therapy using pulsed electrical signals applied to the vagus nerve for the
treatment of refractory epilepsy and treatment-resistant depression (�TRD�). We
are also investigating the use of vagus nerve stimulation and other
neuromodulation therapy for other indications, including chronic heart failure,
and developing non-implantable device solutions for the management of epilepsy.
