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 80 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

 

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”.

“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. 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.

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 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."

  • "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.  "

  • "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."
