Pain Management

Assisi technology derives from PEMF technology cleared by the FDA for the treatment of post-operative pain and edema. Studies have demonstrated that the Assisi base technology is at least as effective as NSAIDs in the treatment of pain and edema.1 In a study on humans, using the technology upon which Assisi is based, the use of pain medication decreased by nearly 3-fold in the treated patients compared with the control group.2
