Celebrating 10 years of delivering drug-free FDA-cleared medical therapy for chronic pain, bioelectronic medical device pioneer, ElectroMedical Technologies, recently announced that its WellnessPro Plus™ device can demonstrate results, proving that it helps people reduce their dependency and use of highly-addictive opioid narcotics. ElectroMedical Technologies has numerous physician and patient testimonials supporting its claims of being a very effective alternative for managing pain from chronic disease and trauma pain.
"It is our goal and passion to significantly help reduce people's dependency on pharmaceutical drugs and subsequently drug abuse - specifically the dangerous and highly- addictive opioid narcotic use in out country. We think it is time to be bold and aggressive with our technology and commitment to help people who suffer from chronic and often crippling pain," said Mathew Wolfson, founder and chief executive Officer of ElectroMedical Technologies. "The amount of data around opioid abuse due to chronic pain is staggering."
Wolfson went on to say, "ElectroMedical Technologies' WellnessPro Plus brings a drug-free solution to those suffering with chronic pain and offers real relief."
As reported in the Wall Street Journal, July 2016, Kevin Tracey, president and chief executive officer of the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, commented "we live in a pharmacocentric culture today, where the world revolves around a drug for everything in a trillion-dollar pharmaceutical industry," he says. "But when I talk to patients...people don't want to take drugs." According to the Feinstein Institute, "bioelectronic medicine is a scientific discipline that brings together molecular biology, neurophysiology, neurotechnology and analytics to develop nerve-stimulating technologies to regulate the molecular targets underlying disease. This approach promises to deliver therapies superior to pharmaceuticals in terms of efficacy, safety, and cost, without significant side effects."
ElectroMedical Technologies now announces its latest international certification, COFEPRIS, issued by the Mexico Health Authority for an approved medical device. WellnessPro Plus™ can now be sold and distributed throughout Mexico. The COFEPRIS certification adds to the company's list of international certifications including US FDA, European Union and Health Canada, and is consistent with the company's international pedigree based on scientists from around the world. ElectroMedical is also current with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which specifies requirements for medical devices that consistently meet customer requirements and regulatory requirements applicable to medical devices.
"We are pleased to be adding Mexico COFEPRIS to our list of international certifications, in line with our mission for improving global wellness by relieving chronic and acute pain," said Mathew Wolfson, founder and chief executive officer of ElectroMedical Technologies. "Globally, healthcare is shifting its focus towards alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs, including bioelectronics, and ElectroMedical supports that shift with our WellnessPro Plus device and new products planned to extend our Wellness product line."
The WellnessPro line of products represents the industry's first intelligent portable bioelectronic platform, which unlike conventional TENS devices, delivers faster, lasting pain relief based on a proprietary DeepPulse™ technology. WellnessPro Plus is used by sports medicine, chiropractic, natural health, physiotherapy and pain management practitioners in the treatment of chronic and acute pain and is available directly from its website or through its international network of distributors. ElectroMedical is actively recruiting new distributors to support its growth.
The WellnessPro Plus Difference:
- Innovation for Pain Relief. ElectroMedical uses a proprietary technology, DeepPulse, to provide immediate and lasting pain relief. This same innovation prevents a known biological occurrence, accommodation, where the body adapts to specific treatments, diminishing treatment effectiveness over time. Accommodation occurs with most TENS devices.
- Broad Treatment Application. WellnessPro Plus has the largest frequency range in its class and therefore has the broadest application for conditions that cause pain including cancer, arthritis, Parkinson's disease, neurological disorders, spinal cord injuries, joint and back pain.
- Simple to Administer and Use. WellnessPro Plus is pre-programmed with more than 900 Autocodes, corresponding with specific conditions (e.g. Rheumatoid Arthritis). Users simply need to enter a desired code and press Start. Autocodes are complemented by iGuide software which provides intuitive instructions for device usage when programming is required.
- Physician Integration. StimCard™, unique to ElectroMedical bioelectronics, allows physicians to create, backup and store personalized patient programs.
