Electroceuticals: A new paradigm for treatment of diseases

Electroceuticals are medical devices which make use of electrical impulses to stimulate nerves and tissues to relieve or alleviate various conditions of the body. Electroceutical devices are also known as bioelectronic medicine or bioelectric implants which are emerging as an alternative to pharmaceuticals as they are highly target specific and affect the body electrically rather than affecting the chemistry of body as in the case of the use of pills which in turn have various side effects. Growing prevalence of medical conditions such as neurological disorders (epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Paraneoplastic Neurologic Syndrome, migraine etc) have led to increasing interest in research and development investments for electroceuticals and cost effectiveness are driving the market of electroceuticals.
