About InSet Technologies

InSet Technologies Incorporated (www.insetinc.com) is a privately-held company solely focused on developing totally implantable pumps delivering targeted medications directly to the spinal cord (intrathecal space) to achieve potentially improved functional relief with a dramatic reduction in the side effects from high doses of drugs for chronic pain, cancer pain and spasticity, a market potential in excess of $5 billion.
