Patients

Helping pain sufferers lose the pain – and the meds.

BioWave's BioWavePENS, BioWavePRO and BioWaveHOME neuromodulation pain therapy devices all work toward the same goal: to help you lead a more active life by delivering instant, long-lasting pain relief. 100% opioid-free.

BioWave is clinically proven to effectively block pain for up to 24 hours from one thirty minute treatment. In fact, 85% of patients experience a significant reduction in pain.* BioWave is used by over 50 VA's, active military, pain doctors, over 120 professional sports teams (NFL, NHL, NBA and MLB) plus over 160 major college athletic programs. BioWave neurostimulators provide instant, long-lasting pain relief, and can be used during active or passive range of motion to improve function and accelerate your pain relief.

Patented, Proven, Effective Relief from Chronic Pain.

BioWave delivers a patented therapeutic electrical signal through skin directly to pain nerves – blocking the transmission of pain and improving function. BioWave works like an implanted spinal cord stimulator without having to have surgery and without a stimulator and leads implanted inside your body.

Multiple clinical studies have demonstrated that a 30-minute treatment provides patients with significant benefits:

• Up to 75% immediate average reduction in pain
• Up to 72 hours of pain relief with BioWavePENS
• Up to 24 hours of pain relief with BioWavePRO and BioWaveHOME
• Reduction in pain medication consumption
• Increase in range of motion
• Reduction in stiffness
• Reduction in muscle spasm

 

Even Using BioWave Isn’t a Pain

BioWave’s patented signal technology allowed for the design of a very easy-to-use device – there is NO programming. Patient control their own comfort level by adjusting the intensity of the signal with simple Plus and Minus buttons on the face of the “magic blue box”.

 

BioWavePENS®
BioWavePENS is a Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation System. BioWavePENS is the most advanced neurostimulation therapy for treating severe chronic, acute or postoperative musculoskeletal and neuropathic pain.

BioWavePENS is performed under the supervision of a physician in a Pain or Spine Clinic setting.

BioWavePRO®
BioWavePRO is a Neuromodulation Pain Therapy System that utilizes a unique signal-mixing technology to deliver electrical signals through the skin directly to nerves for inhibiting pain transmission and improving function.

BioWavePRO is used with noninvasive electrodes in physical therapy, sports medicine, and athletic training to very comfortably facilitate motion and manage pain simultaneously.

BioWaveHOME®
BioWaveHOME is a prescription neurostimulator for patients to treat chronic, acute and postoperative pain on an as needed basis at home or while traveling.

“Blue Box” Key Benefits

• Instant Pain Relief – pain is reduced as you begin increasing the intensity
• Reduces the need for opioids and other pain medication
• Long Carryover Effect – provides up to 72 hours of pain relief and functional improvement and may provide a cumulative benefit with multiple treatments
• Easy to Use – patient controlled and no programming, signals are optimized for penetrating the skin, blocking pain and improving function
• Comfortable – a deep, smooth continuous sensation during treatment; not the noxious electrical twitching sensation common with TENS
• Portable – hand-held and easily used at home or while traveling. Also can be used to facilitate motion during physical therapy exercises.
• Advanced Deep Tissue Signal Technology – optimized to pass through skin to the surface of pain nerves, blocking the pain signal to the brain

 

Treatment Availability

BioWave pain therapy treatments are available from healthcare providers in different settings.

Physicians in hospitals and pain clinics may offer BioWavePENS treatments which provide the greatest and longest-lasting efficacy.

If BioWavePENS is not available, physicians may write a prescription for you for BioWaveHOME which may be an adequate solution for ongoing maintenance of your pain condition at home or while you travel.

Physical therapists use BioWavePRO during range of motion, exercise and stretching therapy to facilitate motion and manage pain simultaneously, accelerating your rehabilitation.

  • "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."

  • "I’m Nathan Stupar and am currently a linebacker for the New Orleans Saints. I recently tore my ACL on punt coverage during our game against the Detroit Lions our fourth game into the regular season. I want to tell you about my journey ahead of me. Tearing your ACL means recovery takes about six to nine months to return to the football field. This is a difficult thing to process because I’m used to injuries taking a couple weeks to come back from. Recently in preseason this year I tweaked my hamstring against the Texans. Hamstrings are no laughing matter because they are very tricky. If it isn’t right and you come back too soon, you can easily tweak it again and be out another couple of weeks. But during my recovery I used BioWavePRO nonstop. It blocked the pain, allowed me to complete my rehab more easily and helped me get back onto the field quicker. I began to play my best football on special teams until I ended up tearing my ACL. The BioWavePRO gave me a quicker healing timeline and took away the pains that can come with a tweaked hammy. I would definitely suggest using BioWavePRO for future injuries like I am now with my ACL. I am currently rehabbing from my surgery and things are going great. Yes it will take time to get back to grinding on the field with my brothers, but I know I’ll be back quicker with the help of my BioWavePRO by my side! I highly recommend it to those who are looking for an edge on recovery and pain relief. It really does wonders. Thank you BioWave for keeping me right and to bringing me back as soon as possible so I can be back to playing on Sundays!"

  • "In my experience, BiowavePRO Neuromodulation Pain Therapy is a great adjunct therapy for providing long-lasting pain relief in my patients. I have several spinal stenosis patients who have had difficulty returning to daily activity through traditional physical therapy. When I treated my patients with BiowavePRO, the treatments consistently provide about 48 hours of continued pain relief as well as a significant reduction in stiffness. I have found it to be one of the most helpful tools to get my patients to comfortably return to daily activities."
