The Company develops and markets neurodiagnostic systems which typically consist of a medical device plus single-use biosensors or electrodes. Other accessories are also offered to its customers. Its initial product for diabetic neuropathy, NC-stat DPNCheck, was launched in September 2011.

The device measures nerve conduction velocity and response amplitude of the sural nerve, a nerve in the lower leg and ankle. These parameters are recognized as sensitive and specific biomarkers of DPN. The Company also markets a medical device, which has been cleared by the FDA and which is used for the assessment of neuropathies such as carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, and sciatica. Its ADVANCE NCS/EMG System, or the ADVANCE System, which is a part of its legacy neurodiagnostics business, is a comprehensive platform for the performance of traditional nerve conduction studies and invasive electromyography procedures.
