NanoVibronix out of Nesher, Israel just received FDA approval for the company’s PainShield device, a system that uses disposable electronically activated patches to deliver ultrasound to areas of localized pain.
From the product page:
The PainShield device is a portable, battery powered electronic unit that is connected to a disposable patch through which it delivers localized energy creating therapeutic effect to treat localized pain and induce soft tissue healing. This is made possible due to the company’s proprietary technology which allows for the creation of a therapeutic transducer that can be made disposable and incorporated into a patch.
The PainShield product uniquely generates and delivers localized, low frequency, low intensity therapeutic ultrasound by a self adhering patch, place next to the treated area for a period of time.
Product usage has shown wide range of applications including reduction of acute and chronic pain as well as an anti-inflammatory effect. PainShield may be used immediately post-injury and post-op. The product is patch based and does not require for medical personnel to apply it and hold it in place while receiving therapy.
Patient benefits include its ease of application and use, faster recovery time, high compliance, safety, and effectiveness.
