About the Company

Abilion Medical Systems AB was founded in 2015 by Dr Jan-Erik Juto and Mr Fredrik Juto to develop the INMEST treatment approach and INMEST-based medical devices. Intra-Nasal MEchanical STimulation (or INMEST for short) is a novel treatment approach pioneered by prof Jan-Erik Juto during his career as a Medical Doctor and Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Surgeon at the Karolinska Institute. INMEST is delivered using a soft and pliable catheter that is inserted into the nasal cavity where it gently stimulates the deeply innervated tissues that line part of the cavity. The INMEST technology is being investigated in clinical trials.

Abilion is developing a hand-held medical device that is intended to make INMEST available for self-treatment in a home setting (patents granted and pending). The company as yet does not have any approved products available for sale. All development work takes place at the company’s office in Stockholm, Sweden.

Abilion is certified according to ISO 13485 (download certificate).
