ELMSFORD, N.Y., June 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoVibronix, Inc., (NASDAQ: NAOV), a medical device company that produces Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) based Ultrasonic Therapeutic Devices - the UroShield®, PainShield® and WoundShield®, today announced that its newly introduced PainShield PT 100 ultrasound therapy device has received the coveted Plus X Award 2020 in the categories of high quality, design, ease of use and functionality.
"Winning this award is a clear affirmation of the design, quality and innovation behind our PainShield technology," said Brian Murphy, CEO of NanoVibronix. "Millions of people suffer from chronic pain and now more than ever, clinicians and patients are looking for proven, non-pharmaceutical alternatives for pain management that can be administered in a variety of settings, especially the safety of a patient's home. Access to effective home care is critically important due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions. PainShield PT 100 ultrasound therapy provides non-opioid pain therapy while maintaining social distancing at home and healthcare facilities. The nomination by Medisana and quality seals awarded by the panel at Plus X reinforce our confidence in the PainShield product and our optimism for accelerating market acceptance."
The new private label PainShield PT 100 ultrasound therapy device, which is sold directly and exclusively by Medisana outside the United States, is a portable therapeutic ultrasound device for the treatment of pain and soft tissue injuries. It works with ultrasound at low intensity and low frequency, thus improving local blood circulation, relieving local inflammation and accelerating the healing of connective tissue. The ultrasound therapy device is easy to use anywhere and anytime – at home, at work, in a clinical setting or even while sleeping – with comfortable, hands-free application. The Medisana PainShield PT 100 was designed specifically for the company to be sold throughout their extensive international network.
