PainShield® MD - Breakthrough in Therapeutic Ultrasound

Ultrasound energy has been used for many years to relieve pain, muscle spasm and to enhance wound healing. PainShield MD ultrasound has been shown to reduce pain. In addition to relaxing muscle spasm, it may exert its action via possible effects on nerves, blood vessels and nitric oxide formation. Conventional Ultrasound affects a narrow portion of tissue, while the PainShield MD action is much wider.

PainShield® MD Breakthrough

Current Ultrasound


  • Wearable and lightweight device
  • Covers large surface area
  • Patch based transducer allows hands-free therapy
  • Patient may use at home
  • Transducer miniaturized

  • Stationary bulk devices
  • Beam covers narrow area
  • Transducer must always be moving
  • Medical professional needed to operate in a medical setting

Conventional ultrasound units are limited by their cost and size, and even portable units are cumbersome to transport. The small number and length of treatment sessions that are possible with conventional units in a clinical setting limit the effectiveness of the therapy.

PainShield® MD

The PainShield® MD device solves all of the problems of conventional therapeutic ultrasound.
  • A small 3cm ultrasound transducer is contained in a self-adhering patch
  • The system is lightweight (3oz - 85g), wearable and portable
  • The pocket-sized driver is smaller than a TV remote (39x12x125 mm - 1.5"x7/16"x4 7/8" - approximately)
  • The PainShield MD system can be used almost anywhere and anytime – at home, in a clinical setting, at work or even while sleeping
  • Treatment is not limited to the few occasions that a patient can visit a therapist's office. Allowing for time to charge the unit, up to two treatment sessions of 6.5 hours each can be applied each day.
  • Once applied, operation is hands-free
  • PainShield MD is simple to operate - one button switches the unit on and off.
  • Ultrasound energy penetrates up to 4 cm below the surface and the therapeutic action reaches up to 10 cm from the device
  • PainShield MD has been shown to alleviate the pain of trigeminal neuralgia and other pain conditions.
  • PainShield MD has now been shown to be effective in patients with chronic pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis, and related conditions (click here for clinical data)
