Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic widespread pain. It affects approximately 200 to 400 million people worldwide according to The National Fibromyalgia Association. It has a devastating impact on those who suffer from the disease and their personal support systems. In addition, it imposes a large economic burden on public and private healthcare providers.

The AVACEN 100 is a Class II medical device that uses the AVACEN Treatment Method. It recently received CE (Conformité Européenne) Mark approval to treat widespread pain associated with fibromyalgia.  The CE Mark allows AVACEN to market the AVACEN 100 to the European Union's 28 member countries where many prescription drugs available in the U.S. have been rejected by regulatory officials for treating fibromyalgia pain.

The AVACEN Treatment Method is an entirely new concept in chronic pain treatment that noninvasively and safely infuses heat into the circulatory system to create muscular relaxation while increasing microcirculation throughout the body. Unlike other medical devices providing local pain relief, the AVACEN 100's unique mechanism of action offers widespread pain relief.

AVACEN Medical CEO Thomas Muehlbauer described the AVACEN 100 as "the only medical device on the market today able to provide non-invasive, rapid whole-body treatment, using a single point of contact. It is the ideal drug-free and safe alternative for relief of muscle and joint pain." Muehlbauer added, "The most exciting aspect of this newly published and peer-reviewed research is that 100% positive results were recorded for the full therapeutic treatment group. Additionally, the data demonstrated a statistically significant effect on the scientifically recognized fibromyalgia diagnosis metrics."

The AVACEN 22-person fibromyalgia study was conducted under a Cooperative Research Development Agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs at the University of California San Diego Center for Pain Medicine, Perlman Medical Center and the VA Medical Center, San Diego.

The 28-day AVACEN follow-up study produced a statistically significant reduction of over 40% in the widespread pain index and a reduction in average tender point counts from approximately 15 to 9 (11 is used for clinical assessment). Study details can be found at https://www.avacen.com/fms and are also published on the National Institutes of Health – ClinicalTrials.gov website.
