Point Pressure: creating a new device for muscle spasticity

Point Pressure is a Barcelona-based medical technology startup committed to helping patients affected by neurological conditions. With their first product, Sura, they are bringing a non-invasive, non-drug treatment for muscle spasticity to the medical device industry.

We are proud to announce that A+J Patient Advocacy is now a member of the Advisory Panel at Point Pressure. Representing the patient and family voice, we are excited to work with this medical technology organization and hopefully see their device available to U.S. patients in the coming years.

What is spasticity?

Spasticity is known as a chronic neurological condition that causes muscular stiffness or an increase in tone. Such an abnormal muscular state highly interferes with movement, manipulation capabilities, and quality of life.

The Problem

Patients with lower limb spasticity caused by stroke, cerebral palsy or MS must rely on painful, invasive, and drug-dependent treatments to reduce their muscle stiffness. Such treatments require a specialized center and physicians.

The Solution: Sura

Sura is a portable device that straps to the affected limb, detects the current muscular tone, and applies a mechanical, non-invasive and drug-free treatment. Sura reduces muscular spasticity, allowing the patient’s limb to move easier.

Be well,
