What is BioWave?

The BioWave Technology allows us deliver electrical signals deep into the tissue to block pain fibers and help improve muscle function. This unique electronic device differs from other devices in that the signal mixing technology penetrates deeper and more effectively into the painful areas, thereby giving you greater control.

BioWaveGO is a revolutionary new way of treating pain that uses electric waves, rather than chemicals. Unlike TENS machines that simply mask pain, BioWave’s high frequency, alternating current system blocks pain at its source for long-lasting relief.

Using non-invasive pain relief pads, an active, electrical field forms beneath and surrounding each pad, so pads should be placed directly over the source of your pain. One 30-minute session can provide up to 24 hours pain relief for chronic, acute or post-operative pain.
