PainSolv® confirmed to be safe with implanted cardiac pacemakers in independent review!
We received an unsolicited testimonial from a customer in Nuneaton this week, which he followed up with a telephone call. Not too unusual, except that the customer had been successfully using PainSolv® for what he described as rapid relief from the pain associated with a very sore elbow joint which prevented him from even enjoying a refreshing cup of tea in addition to having painful finger joints caused by an arthritic condition, but his daughter was concerned that the User Guide urged caution if treating too close to an implanted cardiac pacemaker. This is a PainSolv® company policy as there was no evidence to suggest it is either safe or hazardous to consider this usage.
However, Mr Burgess's daughter arranged for her father to be seen by a cardiology technician in the hospital to investigate the issue and the results of the investigation not only put her mind at rest, but pleased her father immensely and PainSolv® were very grateful into the bargain.
Mr Burgess was duly wired up for a full ECG and whilst it was active the PainSolv® was applied to almost every joint in his body as well as over soft tissue, including near the implant, with absolutely no adverse effects at all. The technician then decided in view of the fact they were operating in a safe clinical environment, to apply the PainSolv® directly over the implant to monitor any change in cardiac activity and was able to report that there was absolutely no change to the output or calibration of the implant, thus declaring it safe to use as close to the implant as desired.
This result opens up the uses for PainSolv® dramatically for those with implants who suffer from pain in the shoulders, collar bones, sternum and other sites and is a major breakthrough.
