Intranasal Mechanical stimulation (or INMEST for short) is a novel treatment approach pioneered by prof Jan-Erik Juto during his career as an ENT Medical Doctor and Surgeon at the Karolinska Institute. INMEST is delivered using a soft and pliable catheter that is inserted into a nasal cavity where it gently stimulates the deeply innervated tissues that line part of the cavity.
INMEST technology is currently being investigated in clinical trials.
Abilion Medical Systems AB is developing a hand-held medical device that is intended to make INMEST available for self-treatment in a home setting. Patents pending. The company as yet does not have any approved products available for sale.
