In honor of Pain Awareness Month, U.S. Pain Foundation is one of three nonprofits to partner with Pain Care Labs, a noninvasive pain relief device company. The goal of the partnership, which also includes the Athena Project and ATI Foundation, is to work together to help connect patients with medical devices for pain management.
Pain Care Labs offers three devices using their clinically-proven, patented Cool-Pulse™ technology: VibraCool®, which offers pain relief through wearable cold and vibration therapy; Buzzy®, a kid-friendly cold and vibration device to block needle pain; and its newest innovation, DuoTherm™ vibrating back relief device, which provides hot and cold vibrational therapy. The devices were developed by pediatric emergency doctor and pain researcher Amy Baxter, MD.
As part of the collaboration, Pain Care Labs is raising funds through an IndieGoGo campaign to donate DuoTherm and VibraCool units to each nonprofit. To date, $1,000 has been pledged to donate DuoTherm and VibraCool units specifically to the U.S. Pain Foundation.
In addition, Pain Care Labs has donated two VibraCool devices to be raffled off by U.S. Pain during its social media challenge on Sept. 19, along with one Buzzy device, to be given away on Sept. 29. To enter to win, check the U.S. Pain Facebook and Twitter pages on the dates above.
