Article: Zap Away your Pain

Bella Logo

“Drug free relief of aches and pains and faster healing is promised by two new DIY gadgets. One is a large pen like device and the other a stick on patch, and both use mild electrical currents to take effect. The PainGone* Pen from Tower Health has already been tested at The Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, on 35 patients with chronic muscle and joint pains. The device was loaned to patients to try out at home for two weeks. Patients used it to ‘zap’ the point of their pain, which induced a momentary tingling. While it didn’t help everyone, about 60% gave it the thumb-up. They found it eased some of their pain, improved their mobility and / or reduced their need for painkillers. Anaesthetist Dr Tzvetanka Invanova-Stoilova, who conducted the trial, says: ‘Patients found it easy to use and convenient for pain relief. Especially as it can easily be carried and used on long journeys’.”
