Technomed designs and manufactures neurophysiology accessories used for EMG and EEG studies.
Magstim Group Brands Unite As Welcony
According to Krinke, all Magstim Group brands are now united under a new umbrella organization named Welcony. Magstim TMS, EGI, Technomed and Neurosign will continue as independent brands. Operating as Welcony enables integrated brand growth and service through shared resources for research & development, manufacturing and leadership.
Globally, Welcony technologies have supported thousands of research labs, clinics, hospitals and universities that focus on mental health, brain disorders, cognitive neuroscience and neuromonitoring. Key brands include Magstim Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Electrical Geodesics Inc. (EGI) high-density EEG, Technomed Clinical Neurophysiology and Neurosign Nerve Safety Monitoring. Welcony is backed by Telegraph Hill Partners, a San Francisco based private equity company.
