What is the PainGone Pen?
PAIN®GONE is a handy, fast working pain relief device shaped like a large ballpoint or fountain pen, and is just as easy to use. Unlike TENS, it has no attachments or batteries and can be used anywhere, anytime to help take your pain away. It uses a low-frequency electrical charge produced by crystals to provide prolonged pain relief which is clinically proven to work. It is a new way to treat pain problems without having to resort to treatment with pain killers or injections.
When the red button is pressed, the built-in generator produces a high voltage pulse for a brief period - this activates Pain®Gone. It delivers an electrical signal of approximately 15,000 volts and 0.006 milliamps.It's a fusion between TENS and electrocuting techniques, but with greater flexibility. Carried in your hand bag or jacket pocket, it can be used whenever and wherever the need arises, even through light clothing, avoiding having to undress.
How does the PainGone Pen work?
Pain®Gone is designed as a low-frequency unit (1-2 Hz), resulting in long-lasting pain relief. It can "click" as many as 100,000 times (approximately 2 years) with no extra expense for maintenance whatsoever - it requires no batteries or any other kind of power source and is not reliant on pads, wires or leads for its effect. A typical treatment session would consist of between 20 - 40 clicks per painful area, spread over several minutes.
PAIN®GONE transmits electrical impulses that are conducted by the peripheral nerves to the pain processing centre in the spinal cord (dorsal horn), helping to "close the gate", reducing the onward transmission of pain to the brain. Pain relief is also enhanced by the release of endorphins (natural morphine molecules).
