Welcome to KevMed
What we do
We are dedicated to the relief of
chronic pelvic pain and
related disorders by providing, novel, safe and non-invasive therapies.
Why we do it
|Over 15 million patients in the USA suffer from a number of overlapping disorders that include pelvic pain, abdominal pain, Adhesion Related Disorder (ARD), bowel obstruction, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis (IC), painful bladder syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), vulvodynia, dyspareunia (painful intercourse), dyschezia (painful defecation), adhesions, sacroiliac joint pain, pudendal neuralgia and pelvic floor dysfunction.|
Numerous patients undergo hysterectomy in an
effort to alleviate their pain, only to discover that the procedure
worsens their condition. In extreme cases, patients will also report
fibromyalgia, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders (TMD) and reflex
sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) or complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).
Patients suffering with these conditions often resort to using opioids and other medications whose side-effects create additional problems, leaving patients with very few treatment options. It is our goal to change that.
How we do it
Our first product is PainShield® MD, a new wearable device that delivers low-frequency therapeutic ultrasound, which promises to be a non-invasive, drug-free alternative for pain management in patients who suffer from debilitating pelvic pain.
In patients with long-standing, difficult-to-treat pain, PainShield MD has been found to significantly reduce pain associated with a number of pelvic and abdominal conditions, including interstitial cystitis, irritable bowel syndrome and chronic pelvic pain. A number of patients have been able to reduce or eliminate their use of medications, including opioids.
We invite you to explore our web site, where you can learn more about the clinical effects of PainShield MD, as well as its technical details. You will also be able read testimonials from patients who have benefitted from PainShield MD. Lastly, please download our information brochure which you can share with yourhealth professional.
In addition to PainShield and the other products we plan to introduce, we are making available a free, comprehensive pain diary, to empower chronic pelvic pain patients by allowing them to monitor and take charge of their condition, and helping them to communicate efficiently, effectively and knowledgeably with medical providers. The diary will help to save time in the doctor’s office by presenting a clear picture of the patient's progress, leaving more time for the doctor and patient to plan future treatment.
