FREDERICK, Md., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BioElectronics Corporation (OTC Pink: BIEL), the maker of advanced consumer medical devices, announced today the publication of feature article The Case for Over-the-Counter Shortwave Therapy: Safe and Effective Devices for Pain Management in the peer reviewed journal Pain Management (http://www.futuremedicine.com/doi/full/10.2217/pmt.13.60). The current methods of drug-based analgesia are often ineffective, at best only temporarily masking pain while not treating or providing the benefit of enhanced recovery.
The paper makes the case for more widespread use of radio frequency shortwave devices to overcome the dosage limitations, costs, and side-effects of pharmacological-based pain relief. To view the complete article, please visit http://www.futuremedicine.com/doi/full/10.2217/pmt.13.60
There is a dire unmet medical need for effective and safe pain therapy. For decades, physicians have used pulsed shortwave therapy in hospitals and clinics to reduce pain and inflammation and accelerate healing. BioElectronics has taken the therapy mode, miniaturized the device, lowered the power level and honed the signal to provide low cost superior 24-hour extended duration relief. The devices provides 5x better pain relief than OTC drugs, are 100% safer, and provide 720-hours of flexible on/off therapy for under $30.00 retail, or $.04 per hour.
