Australian global health-tech company release world first pain relief technology


Australians experience a higher percentage of pain than any country across the globe, with seven in ten people experiencing body pain on a weekly basis, according to the Global Pain Index. Living in the ‘epicentre of body pain’, Australian born global business PainPod has developed drug-free, pain relief technologies that can harness the body’s bioelectrical system to moderate and manage pain levels, accelerate recovery and increase performance. The PainPod range includes leading products; PainPod Mi and PainPod 3 Physical Therapy Device as well as a range of accessory hand and feet applications.

The new generation device PainPod Mi is the world’s only natural recovery and pain relief technology available in one ultra-wearable unit. Unlike a transcutaneous electrical stimulation device (TENS), the Mi device uses Micro Current Therapy which works at a level approximately 1000 times less than TENS, and cannot be felt by its user. The device mimics the body’s natural electrical microcurrent, helping cells to regenerate and repair, reducing inflammation and assisting in pain relief, rather than working as a pain blocker.

With a range of technologies that fit in the palm of your hand, the products act as ‘physiotherapy in your pocket’ and seamlessly fit into anyone’s lifestyle. The PainPod 3 device works by delivering bio-electrical nerve stimulation pulses through the skin to the nerve endings in the affected area, blocking the pain signals from travelling to the brain. A 3-in-1 device, the PainPod 3 can block pain, accelerate recovery and increase performance levels through its 12 scientifically developed therapy modes.

PainPod’s bio-engineers have applied the very latest scientific advances in biomedical, portable physical therapy devices to create a device that acts in harmony with the body’s biosystem. Packaged as a non-invasive, wearable unit, the company has placed medically developed biotechnology directly into the hands of medical professionals, athletes and everyday users.

Targeting all levels of pain, the product range is changing the lives of its varied users; helping with chronic or acute pain in the body, nerve pain, rehabilitation, post-injury and surgery recovery, pre-natal, labour and post-natal pain, arthritis and more.

A favourite amongst Australian athletes, such as Australian Volleyball Olympian Christie Mokotupu and Rugby League Legend Graham Eadie, the PainPod device range offers a 100% natural, drug-free solution. Used during exercise, the physical therapy technology can recruit more muscle fibres at up to 40% stronger contractions than regular resistance training methods. It provides faster training results, increased strength and optimal conditioning.

Not limited to the elite athlete, everyday users are benefiting from the device. It is appropriate for children, to pregnant women in their final trimester to the elderly and can target a range of pain management needs.

“When formulating the design, it was important to develop beyond the current market and introduce the world to a targeted, easy-to-use pain relief device,” says Rick Rowan, CEO of PainPod. “PainPod has reviewed thousands of studies to develop our specific formulations. Our bioengineers and research teams are continually adapting to the latest technology so we can ensure everyone can experience a non-invasive, drug-free system of pain relief and recovery.”

PainPod is highly regarded and used by leading doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors and sport scientists around the globe. It is approved on the register of Therapeutic Goods Australia and FDA listed. PainPod is growing exponentially as users in Australia, USA, the UK and now Europe are embracing the proprietary technology application.
