The Calmare® device uses a biophysical rather than a biochemical approach.
A 'no-pain' message is transmitted to the nerve via disposable surface electrodes applied to the skin in the region of the patient's pain.
The perception of pain is cancelled when the no-pain message replaces that of pain, by using the same pathway through the surface electrodes in a non-invasive way.
Regardless of pain intensity, a patient's pain can be completely removed for immediate relief.
Maximum benefit is achieved through follow-up treatments.
The patient may be able to go for extended periods of time between subsequent treatments while experiencing significant pain control and relief.
The period of time between treatments depends on the underlying cause and severity of the pain in addition to other factors.
