JERUSALEM, Dec. 08, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brainsway LTD (TASE:BRIN), a leader in non-invasive brain stimulation, is pleased to announce a new partnership agreement with moksha8, a leader in the commercialization of CNS medicines in Latin America, for the exclusive distribution of Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) in Mexico. moksha8 intends to register and start commercialization of several Deep TMS systems in 2016 and has already committed to launch 10 systems in the following 12 months.
"Brainsway is thrilled to announce this new partnership. I am confident that with Brainsway's technology and moksha8's strong presence in the Mexican CNS market, we will succeed in opening up a new horizon for Deep TMS technology.
