Chronic Pain Reliever Using Mobile Devices

Technology has pretty much intrudes everything in our lives. One of the aspects is medicine. Today, the concept of incorporating medicine with technology helps a lot in saving people's lives.

A patch to relieve chronic pain in time of need. 

The image shown above is a concept brought by Thimble Bioelectronics and it is used as chronic pain reliever. Current treatment for chronic pain involves some medications (ibuprofen, aspirin, vicodin) or meditations. The patch in this concept will act as pain reliever by method of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), an electrical shock uses in electric therapy to treat certain types of chronic pain.

Traditional equipment for TENS therapy. Quite scary as compared to
above picture.
Normal TENS therapy will need the use of some electrical powered machine to deliver a shock via several electrodes attached to the body. The patch, however, will function like a bandage in which the user can administer their own pain relief when needed (kinda like administering your own drug intake). It will come with Bluetooth connectivity and mobile devices with a special app tracking how the patch is used and managed. Pretty neat, huh?
