BioElectronics Clinical Studies: Postoperative Pain & Edema
BioElectronics RecoveryRx® was investigated in a double blind, randomized and placebo controlled study for postoperative pain and narcotic pain medication use following breast augmentation surgery. Data, VAS pain scores (0-10) and medication was collected for seven days post-surgery. The group using RecoveryRx® experienced 50% less pain and consumed significantly less narcotic pain medications. The study is published in the Aesthetics of Plastic Surgery.
Table 1. Narcotic pain medication use (total pills) was significantly lower in the group using RecoveryRx®
Development of BioElectronics medical devices was based on the pioneering basic and clinical research by Dr Richard Bentall. In an initial study Dr. Bentall looked at the effect of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields on postoperative edema from blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). This pioneering study was published in the Aesthetics of Plastic Surgery.
