Notes to Editors

About Manus Neurodynamica –

Dr Rutger Zietsma founded Manus. The Company’s main activity is designing, patenting and marketing innovative technologies used in medical devices and personal care products which have the capability to improve people’s health and wellbeing. The Company implements quality procedures to medical standards.

The principal product is the NeuroMotor Pen™ (NMP) designed for use in the diagnosis and monitoring of neuromotor impairments. As a first indication, the pen has been configured for use in Parkinson’s disease and tremor differentiation and uses limb and hand motion to diagnose patients quickly and non-invasively. It has applications across not just diagnosis but also screening, monitoring, rehabilitation and drug development for a number of different neurological disorders.

About NeuroMotor PenTM

is a unique, patented and CE-marked system that combines sensor technologies built into a digital pen with software and an analytical engine with Decision Support System, using AI. The interface enables users to record non-invasively and analyse parameters of minute limb and hand motion. This enables quantification of fine motor skill. These parameters are used as ‘digital biomarkers’ to provide objective information about movement abnormalities. NMP can be used to support differential diagnosis and monitoring of movement disorders and other neuromotor impairments. It has the potential to be a quick, inexpensive, non-invasive, and objective aid to diagnosis that can provide a low-cost alternative to brain scans. There are additional applications in prevention screening, monitoring, rehabilitation and drug development for a number of different neurological disorders.

Breakthrough Designation has been granted by the FDA for the proposed indication of using the NeuroMotor PenTM to support health care providers (HCPs) in differentiating between Parkinsonian and non-Parkinsonian tremors in adult patients who are suspected to have Parkinson’s Disease (PD) but have not been diagnosed by other means.
