Medical device firm NanoVibronix has launched its hands-free ultrasound therapy device, PainShield MD, in the US.
The company has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the PainShield MD to treat pain.
NanoVibronix president and CEO Dr William Stern said: "PainShield MD, which implements our unique low frequency, low intensity ultrasound platform, is the first product from our pipeline to be cleared for marketing in the USA and represents a major milestone for NanoVibronix.
"Our simple-to-use, portable device can treat pain locally including trigeminal neuralgia, chronic pelvic pain, tendonitis, musculoskeletal disorders, and post operative pain."
PainShield MD is a hands-free and patch-based device that can be used in ultrasound treatment of pain and soft tissue healing.
Integrated with advanced technology, the device features disposable patch connected to a portable reusable driver that circulates therapeutic ultrasound waves to the desired area of the body.
