    About Amber Therapeutics

    At Amber, our mission is to convert the potential of intelligent bioelectronic hardware (systems that can sense as well as stimulate) into novel bioelectrical therapies.

    With an initial focus on the peripheral nervous system, Amber targets disease areas where adding closed-loop intelligence may radically improve clinical efficacy and outcomes.

    Our leading indication is a new therapy to treat mixed urinary incontinence, an unmet clinical need that constitutes more than 30% of sufferers of urinary incontinence; a market which affects 5% of the global population and over 60% of elderly women in the Western world.

    With venture funding from Oxford Science Enterprises (OSE) and 8VC in the US, alongside Innovate UK grant funding (Biomedical Catalyst), Amber is running an initial in-human pilot study to validate the safety and efficacy of their first therapy.
