Health Gadgets Ranked from Best to Worst


A major advancement in the world of physical therapy is the PainPod wearable biomedical device. The Australian pocket-sized product is perfect for a variety of cases, from people suffering from arthritis and rehabilitation patients to expectant mothers and even professional athletes. PainPod works by sending nerve stimulation pulses to the nerve endings causing pain in the body, and then blocks the pain signals from reaching the brain. It stops pain located in the back, neck, shoulders, arms, and legs. This is a natural, non-invasive alternative to using drugs for pain relief.

Tests have proven PainPod’s ability to improve both acute and chronic pain as well as speed up recovery after surgery, injury, or trauma. There are three versions available, ranging in price from $99 to $479, so you can select the one that works best for your physical needs, but won’t break the bank. Simply attach the included sticky pads to your back and shoulders, choose from among the PainPod’s 12 treatments and 20 intensity settings, and let the healing begin!
