The Axonics r-SNM System has obtained European CE mark approval, Health Canada approval, and Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration approval for the treatment of overactive bladder, urinary retention, and fecal incontinence.
Currently, Axonics is in the follow-up phase of its 129-patient pivotal clinical study, ARTISAN-SNM, designed to gain U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval in the United States for urinary urgency incontinence.

About Overactive Bladder, Fecal Incontinence and Sacral Neuromodulation
Overactive bladder affects an estimated 85 million adults in the U.S. and Europe. Another 40 million are reported to suffer from fecal incontinence. SNM therapy is an effective and durable treatment that has been widely used and reimbursed in Europe and the U.S. for the past two decades. SNM is the only treatment with proven clinical superiority to standard medical therapy and patients receiving SNM report significantly higher quality of life than patients undergoing drug treatment.
About Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc.

The Axonics r-SNM system offers a temporary disposable external trial system, a miniaturized and rechargeable long-lived neurostimulator that is qualified to function for at least 15 years, a tined lead as well as patient-friendly accessories such as a charging system optimized for minimal charge time without overheating, a small, easy to use patient remote control and an intuitive clinician programmer that facilitates lead placement and programming.

Survey Says: Project Leaders Need More PMTQ18.3.2019 17:00:00 EET | Tiedote
Project Management Institute (PMI) today released its Pulse of the Profession® report which reveals that organizations wasted almost 12 percent of their investment in project spend last year due to poor performance—a number that’s barely budged over the past five years. As a solution, PMI is calling on project leaders worldwide to evaluate and bolster their Project Management Technology Quotient or PMTQ. PMI developed the tenets of PMTQ by drawing on insights from innovator companies that put a high priority on digital skills acquisition and knowledge coupled with a commitment to a strong project management culture. PMTQ adds a layer of project management to the concept of technology quotient (TQ), which is defined as a person’s ability to adapt, manage and integrate content advances in technology for a project or organization. "In jobs of the future, project teams will be more and more reliant on technology as either an enabler or sometimes as a team member," said Murat Bicak, Senior
