The society has changed tremendously in the last century. While 100 years ago many people were still accustomed to work on the field, now the society is mostly oriented towards services and we sit in front of a computer all day. This basically brings a lot of pain and other health problems, especially since we lack the exercise. INT

Thankfully, Philips announced recently that they will launch some new pain relief devices which will actually be fully controllable from your iOS device. One of the first products in this line is called PulseRelief and its main purpose is to help you suppress the pain.


PulseRelief brings a new technology which is called transcutaneous electronic nerve simulation that basically sends small electric shocks to your nerves which basically calm the pain since the brain will release endorphins in your body, the substances that basically keep you happy. Yes, there are numerous other similar devices but PulseRelief is the first one that can be actually controlled using the smartphone, which brings a whole new level of interactivity to the experience. You will see a 3D image of the human body and you will be able to modify the intensity of these shocks.

The interesting thing here is that you can actually choose from more than 60 different intensity levels which will basically help you no matter how intense the pain might be.

Although Philips is usually targeting TVs or numerous other types of electronic devices, the need for such a gadget has been there for quite a long time, and PulseRelief is set to solve this problem once and for all. Specifically designed for people that have intense musculoskeletal pain, PulseRelief can be used by just about anyone that encounters such pain. Another device, called BlueTouch is basically created specifically to target muscular back pain in particular which is very hard to deal with sometimes. The latter device is actually filled with blue lights that actually encourage the body to release nitric oxide.


The nitric oxide will encourage the healing process by increasing the blood flow in that particular area. BlueTouch is very small to begin with and, just like its sibling, it brings full smartphone connectivity.

The interesting thing about the smartphone applications is that they actually contain numerous known treatments for these problems. They actually show you where you need to place the devices, thanks to a treatment area map which is very easy to use.

In conclusion, both BlueTouch and PulseRelief are two devices that might very well revolutionize the way we treat the back pain, but we do need to be careful before using them, since they might interfere with some of the conditions that our body might have. This is why it’s crucial to make sure that you get in touch with your doctor before purchasing such a device. Both devices will be released in stores this month and in the online stores sometimes during November.
