PainShield and UroShield are ultrasound devices each consisting of a reusable driver unit and a disposable patch, which contains a proprietary therapeutic transducer. PainShield delivers a localized ultrasound effect to treat pain and induce soft tissue healing in a targeted area, while keeping the level of ultrasound energy at a safe and consistent level. UroShield is a device intended to prevent bacterial colonization and biofilm formation, and ultimately helping to prevent catheter associated urinary tract infections. Its range of applications includes acute and chronic pain resolution through its many mechanisms of action. PainShield, which has broad applications for sports injuries, has been acknowledged by several sports icons. PainShield can be used by patients at home or work or in a clinical setting and can be used even while the patient is sleeping. Patient benefits noted in clinical studies include ease of application and use, faster recovery time, high compliance, and mechanisms of action that affect soft tissue repair. Patients using UroShield have shown a significantly less incidence of UTI, pain, and an increase in antibiotic effectiveness.
