PainQx is an early stage life science company with a patented method for objective, accurate and quantitative measurement of pain. Our system is more accurate than the subjective, inaccurate, patient self-report (the Visual Analog Pain Scale: VAS or the Numeric Rating Scale: NRS). PainQx’s proprietary technology uses mobile, low cost quantitative electroencephalography (QEEG) to provide an objective, quantitative measurement of pain. It is cloud based software, delivered to the clinical environment on a pay-per-use or subscription basis for both human health and/ or veterinary applications.
Current Standard of Care: Visual Analog Scale (VAS)
Although pain has long been regarded as the 5th vital sign, and accurate pain measurement has long been considered critical to guide proper medical diagnosis and treatment, medical care providers have not had any way to objectively measure pain. A medical solution which would quickly analyze complex brain functions and patterns, and then score the pain level, objectively, has previously not existed. PainQx, Inc. is developing such a solution, the PainQx System.
The PainQx System, and its related proprietary systems and technology, will provide the first and only service to deliver an objective, reliable and quantitative measurement of pain. The PainQx System is a web based, pay- per- use or subscription based software format, which will be available for both health care providers and patients. The potential market is extraordinary. In the U.S. alone, there are hundreds of millions of instances every year where medical care providers need to accurately measure pain levels. These instances span the spectrum of health care from emergency situations to routine patient assessment. The accurate assessment of pain is essential to proper patient management. We believe that the PainQx System will deliver a revolutionary, breakthrough solution to the pain quantification need. Our solution will be fast, portable, inexpensive, digital and wireless.
