To enhance the important work being done by VA hospitals nationwide, BioWave provides advanced non-opioid pain therapy solutions for veterans and active military personnel. VA Medical Centers rely on the BioWavePRO, while responding patients continue to treat themselves at home with BioWaveHOME.
BioWave neurostimulators deliver therapeutic high-frequency electrical signals through skin directly to nociceptive pain fibers to block pain signals, accelerate rehabilitation and reduce the need for opioids.
BioWave provides a meaningful improvement in Veterans lives:
- 86% report an improvement in quality of life*
- 57% report a reduction in or elimination of opioid use*
- 91% use BioWave on a daily or weekly basis to manage their pain*
- 91% prefer BioWave over TENS*
*White Paper on Long-Term Use of BioWaveHOME High-Frequency Neurostimulation for the Treatment of Chronic Pain in Veterans Following Successful BioWavePRO Neurostimulation Therapy in VA Hospitals
BioWavePRO is a professional advanced neurostimulator used in a VA Medical Center clinic setting to treat chronic, acute or post-operative pain.
BioWaveHOME is a prescription neurostimulator issued to Veterans following successful therapy with BioWavePRO in the clinic.
In a VA Medical Center, BioWavePRO is used with reusable noninvasive electrodes to treat chronic, acute and post-operative pain in the following departments:
Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)
Neuromodulation During Active Therapy
BioWave is also used to facilitate motion and manage pain simultaneously. The BioWave active electrical field removes the guarding effect associated with pain and allows patients to move more resistance through a greater range of motion with significantly less pain. BioWave accelerates rehabilitation and allows veterans to return to a better quality of life faster.
Reduces the Need for Opioids
Clinical studies show that BioWave reduces the need for opioids and other pain medications.
BioWavePRO and BioWaveHOME feel like a deep, smooth pressure sensation, not the noxious twitching at the surface of the skin like conventional TENS units. As a result, patient compliance is excellent.
Continuum of Care
More than 75% of patients respond positively to the BioWave treatment. Patients who respond typically receive a 50% to 75% reduction in VAS pain scores, a significant increase in range of motion and reduction of stiffness that lasts for up to 24 hours following a 30-minute treatment. If a patient responds to the BioWavePRO therapy in the VA clinic but has ongoing chronic pain management requirements, then a BioWaveHOME neurostimulator is issued by the Department of Prosthetics to the Veteran so they can continue to manage their pain at home and treat themselves on an as needed basis. Patients who respond to BioWavePRO in the clinic always respond to treatment with BioWaveHOME.
Easy to Use
There is no programming, just pain relief at the touch of a button
Built- in software in both neurostimulators automatically limits the patient from reaching too high an intensity preventing the patient from receiving a burn.
Made in the USA
BioWavePRO, BioWaveHOME and all BioWave electrodes are manufactured here in the USA.
"I was 1st @ Bath NY VA to use Biowave. I’m educating my caregivers, friends as I go. Don’t stop trying! It flipping WORKS. Cumulative effect over time, 30 minutes is all it takes."
"I am beyond satisfied with my BioWave unit and it really has become an integral part of my practice … my “go-to unit” if you will … particularly since I’m a Manual Orthopedic Physical Therapist and modalities are an adjunctive way for me to initiate and complete treatment. Thank you and congratulations!!! I see a VERY BRIGHT FUTURE for BioWave!"
"BioWavePRO is a great therapeutic tool for reducing pain and simultaneously improving range of motion and strength in our athletes. With multiple daily treatments, the athlete can perform rehabilitation exercises with less pain, allowing him to return to play more quickly."
