But the validation provided in this study is extremely meaningful to our clinical value proposition.” Cosentino continued: “Our objective is to give surgeons an easier, more cost-effective alternative to monitor nerves intraoperatively that is also safe and clinically effective. This study adds to our confidence that we are meeting our objective.”
