BioElectronics and CARE Pharmacies to Provide Pain Consultations and ActiPatch, the Drug Free Alternative to Opioids

FREDERICK, MD, Jan. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BioElectronics Corporation (OTC Pink: BIEL), the maker of advanced wearable consumer pain management medical device, ActiPatch, announced today that CARE Pharmacies has committed to introducing ActiPatch, Musculoskeletal Pain Therapy medical device to its patients.

“With the current opioid crisis here in the United States, as pharmacists, we are delighted to be able to address the dire need for a safe over-the-counter alternative to opioids. Our focused pain consultations will enhance our patients’ relationships,” said Mark Ey R.Ph., Vice President of Operations at CARE. “Providing therapeutic patient care is what we are trained to do.”

Pain sufferers, and their physicians and pharmacists dramatically need an alternative first line therapy for pain. “We look forward to working with the CARE Pharmacies’ pharmacists to provide better safer patient care,” said Keith Nalepka, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at BioElectronics.

Why ActiPatch works when NOTHING else does?

New research shows that pain persists because the nerves have “learned” pain. When this happens, the body becomes highly sensitive to pain signals that do not go away even after the injury has healed. Drugs and TENS are not effective because they do not target the abnormal pain signals in nerves. ActiPatch’s advanced technology reaches deep into the painful area to safely disrupt the abnormal pain signals. The ActiPatch can be used 24/7 and has no harmful side effects.
