ActiPatch is clinically proven treatment for osteoarthritis as demonstrated in an independently conducted double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial, which was published in the peer, reviewed journal Rheumatology (www.rheumatology.oxfordjournals.org). There was a reported statistically significant reduction in pain and a significant improvement in the WOMAC² index. In addition, patients in the treatment group reported a statistically significant reduction in NSAID compared to the placebo group.
