  • "My name is Mark Loughridge and I called earlier today to order a home BioWave machine.  I tried the BioWave system at my physical therapy appointment with Marjorie Alex today at Rehabilitation Associates in Westport Ct. I was getting my physical therapy session following my 6th hand surgery at HSS in Manhattan. I am quite astonished.  I am quite free of pain in my damaged hand!  This seems like a real game changer!  I would like to order a machine as soon as possible.  I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks!"

  • "BioWavePRO has been a wonderful tool to manage difficult pain conditions in my patients. For example, I have treated frozen shoulder patients who have been resistant to other therapies and whose range of motion was limited. However, when we applied BioWavePRO for eight minutes at the beginning of the PT regimen, and then while the treatment continued, we began PROM and exercise therapy with the patient. The patient was able to move more resistance through a greater range of motion with significantly less pain. I have found it to be a wonderful tool to facilitate motion and allow my patients to complete my therapy protocols much more comfortably."

  • "This is to thank Ron and Tony from Biowave for helping me get this to Ann Arbor, Michigan VA Hospital. During the few days since I received it and used it, it has reduced my average 8 pain level daily and weekly to about a 4 out of 10 scale. I'm glad that I kept bothering my va pain doctor to check into this technology. It will help many more veterans that I'm in contact with to get pain relief without narcotics.  "
