Clinical Research & Trials

  • VibraCool® reduces physical therapy pain 240-340% better than TENS.
  • VibraCool recommended best value for Home Physical Therapy.
  • VibraCool® treats pain from muscle tension and restriction in tendinopathies.

“The authors found the VibraCool® device to be a valuable adjunct to our clinical treatments, especially for very difficult-to-treat [tendinopathies]…Patients showed both high compliance and tolerance; chronic pain patients who had some hypersensitivity to general tactile stimulation did fine with the unit.”

Practical Pain Management again recommended VibraCool for home physical therapy and telePT during COVID-19.

  • Penicillin injection adherence for rheumatic heart disease had been a problem. After 3 uses in a special clinic for non-adherent patients, pain and fear dropped by half. Since adherence was much improved, the special clinic was disbanded.
  • Buzzy was added to the National Guidelines for needle pain in New Zealand.
