CARLSBAD, Calif., June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Oska Wellness, a technology company committed to developing consumer health and wellness products, has released a third-party, independent study showing significant results that Oska Pulse can reduce pain and improve mobility in a phase I clinical trial. Oska Pulse is a safe, easy-to-use, portable and wearable health technology product designed to help reduce muscle stiffness, temporarily relieve minor pain and increase mobility for people who have acute or chronic pain.
The study was authored by Dr. Kathy Davis, Associate Professor of Nursing at Gordon State College, Ga. and published by Dr. Mark D. Wiederhold, Chief Executive Officer at the Virtual Reality Medical Center at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, Ca.
The findings were published in Journal of Pain Management (volume 10, issue 2) and suggest that Oska Pulse is a very effective method in managing pain relief. Journal of Pain Management is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles, review articles, and clinical studies in all areas of pain management.
Of the preliminary results, the most promising findings include:
80% of participants experienced an improvement in pain reduction
40% reported a perceived improvement in overall mobility
30% of the total participants remained pain-free or nearly pain-free for the duration of the four-week trial
"I think this is a good initial report with solid results – especially with helping mobility," said Dr. Davis. "With chronic pain as a common problem seen in clinical practice, patients and providers are seeking alternatives to pain management that are safe and effective. It is critical to continue to study the device with larger samples of the population to further evaluate the full potential of Oska Pulse."
"We are excited for the people living with chronic and acute pain to have access to new data supporting the use of non-drug, noninvasive pain-relief technology as demonstrated in this study," said Greg Houlgate, CEO/President Oska Wellness. "We are committed to helping people return to an active lifestyle without the use of drugs or other invasive techniques."
Oska Pulse, with proprietary eTec™ Pulse Technology, is a small, portable, hands-free wearable device that safely optimizes Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapeutic technology, a longtime therapy used by medical practitioners to help people live a more active, pain-free and drug-free lifestyle.
Additional research has shown that PEMF signals pass through bone and other tissue to aid the body in delivering more nutrients and oxygen to tissues while removing waste products. The Oska Pulse's "Sequential Protocol Programming" delivers four frequencies specifically related to muscle relaxation, bone tissue circulation, capillary dilation and pain reduction.
By helping to release the body's natural endorphins, the Oska Pulse helps reduce pain and promotes increased range of motion. By dilating blood vessels, it reduces inflammation and the increased oxygen rich blood flow speeds muscle recovery.
