"I am highly impressed with the people, the culture and technology," stated Scott, Neurolief new CEO.

The Relivion® wearable neurostimulation system has been designed and clinically validated as the best device in its class, less invasive than surgery and more effective than pharmaceuticals. With a team of highly experienced neuromodulation professionals I am looking forward to positively impacting the lives of the migraine and depression patients that we will serve."
"When the company began its journey, we wanted to revolutionize the way neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders are treated," said Amit Dar, Founder and CTO of Neurolief.

For the first time, Relivion brings this technology to patients non-invasively.
