Practical Pain Management calls VibraCool “well-tested and based on fundamentally sound technology and good science,” effective for joint-related disorders

Our goal is to give patients options for acute and chronic pain conditions that are effective enough that opioids can be reduced or eliminated.”

— Amy Baxter, MD, Pain Care Labs CEO and Chief Medical Officer

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA, September 23, 2020 / — Pain Care Labs, industry leader in noninvasive pain relief devices, announced today that its VibraCool® vibrational cryotherapy devices were chosen among 12 Top Pain-Relieving Devices on the Market as featured in the “Practical Pain Management Journal” (PPM). The PPM guide focuses on FDA-cleared, drug-free pain relief options for patients to use at home as part of a comprehensive pain management plan, with VibraCool as the most affordable medical grade device listed.

“As fewer Americans have safe access to medical offices due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the challenge of home pain management becomes more urgent,” explains Amy Baxter, MD, Pain Care Labs CEO and Chief Medical Officer. “Patients’ surgeries are delayed, and they lack their usual access to physical therapy, massage, and acupuncture. Doctors don’t want to prescribe opioids, so pain relief alternatives are even more critical.”

For over a decade, the mission of Pain Care Labs has been to eliminate unnecessary pain with affordable, clinically proven, interventions. The Company's award-winning solutions are based on a patented M-Stim™ neuromodulation platform.

A number of the devices in the PPM guide rely on transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, commonly known as TENS. VibraCool is different from TENS technology, specifically because VibraCool uses mechanical, not electrical, stimulation. While TENS can stimulate at most two of four gate-control nerves, VibraCool stimulates all four nerves for maximum pain inhibition. VibraCool adds an ice inhibition pathway, reaching five pain inhibitors. “The research on the effectiveness of mechanical stimulation over electrical stimulation is clear,” asserts Dr. Baxter. “The wearable mechanical stimulation frequency that powers VibraCool relieved overuse and musculoskeletal pain 3.6x better than TENS.”

Pain Care Labs' wearable devices reduce chronic pain with noninvasive, non-pharmaceutical methods. VibraCool uses motion and ice to harness two newly discovered physiologic pain pathways: one mechanical frequency blocks pain, another competes with pain for the brain's attention. Proven effective in hospitals for even intense needle pain, this mechanicothermal Oscillice® combination technology is now optimized for a wider range of pain conditions. In addition to the VibraCool products configured for ankle, knee, wrist, elbow, neck, shoulder, and foot, Pain Care Labs expects to deliver its new market-ready device to treat low back pain in Q1 2021.

“Current stay-at-home directives necessitated by COVID-19 mean patients need options to manage pain at home,” says Keith Cronin, Doctor of Physical Therapy. “VibraCool’s mechanical stimulation offers pain relief for inflammation, overuse, and post-operative recovery, and can be easily adapted to any home exercise program. The PPM guide helps patients looking for effective solutions at home.”

The same pain management journal published a review comparing VibraCool to other more expensive devices on the market. The authors found VibraCool to be an affordable, valuable adjunct to clinical treatments. Additionally, the ease of using VibraCool resulted in "both high compliance and tolerance."

Using vibration to treat chronic pain has a long history. Vibration, or the transmission of oscillatory mechanical stimulation, may be accomplished with auditory or ultrasonic waves, pulsed electromagnetic fields, electrical stimulation, shockwaves, or mechanical devices with motor-driven shaking platforms or eccentric flywheels. The PPM guide shows a range of vibration devices on the market. Among the options featured, VibraCool is the most studied solution and the most affordable.


Pain Care Labs is the industry leader in noninvasive pain relief solutions. Buzzy® has been used to block pain for over 35 million needle procedures. VibraCool® is an FDA registered 510(k) cleared device to treat myofascial pain caused by trigger points, restricted motion, and muscle tension. Established in 2006 by emergency physician and pain researcher Amy Baxter M.D., the Company is dedicated to effective, reusable, and affordable solutions for pain. The Company’s award-winning solutions are based on patented Oscillice®, a mechanical stimulation/thermal neuromodulation platform, to give serious, simple relief. Pain Care Labs was named "Industry Leader for Localized Pain Relief" by Frost & Sullivan, a leading market research firm. For more information, including a list of published studies, please visit

Jesse John Francis Clark Brings Lawsuit Against Nevada Hemophilia Treatment Center

HemoAware Logo

LAS VEGAS, NV, USA, September 23, 2020 / — HemoAware Founder, Jesse John Francis Clark, is bringing a lawsuit against Nevada's only federally recognized Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) for discrimination. Clark was born with severe Hemophilia A and was the former Secretary of the board for the Nevada Chapter of The National Hemophilia Foundation. Clark resigned on that board after seeing the balance sheet of the chapter and the nominal amounts going back to community members. HemoAware was founded in 2018 with the mission to enhance the lives of those with inherited bleeding disorders. Clark was the only community member to advocate the safety of Genentech’s Emicizumab (Hemlibra) which currently has 44 fatalities and that number keeps growing with no oversight from the FDA or CDC.

Due to Clark being a loud advocate in the bleeding disorders community, the Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center of Nevada (HTCNV) gave Clark two options: sign a non-disparagement agreement or they would discharge him as a patient of the HTC.

Clark went on a podcast last night to briefly describe what had happened during this unusual visit to his HTC. The podcast has since been streamed hundreds of times since it went live.

The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada.

Are you considering a career in laboratory management? Here are 15 different skills that will help you be successful in your career.

The lab manager plays a central role in ensuring that all laboratory equipment meets safety standards and that employees are well-trained and follow safety protocols.”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2020 / — What’s the ideal skill set for becoming a successful lab manager?

We take a look at the top 15 skills that you should develop to become a top-flight laboratory manager.

1. Mentoring

Let’s assume you have already obtained the requisite education credentials (typically a four-year BS in science, although some employers would prefer candidates with a Master’s degree), and you have been honing your skills as a lab technician for several years.

How does one make the leap from lab technician to lab manager?

What’s the next step?

For the majority of lab managers, their career break came as a result of finding a mentor within the organization where they work.

Someone who could help them grow into the management role by slowly allowing them to take on new responsibilities commensurate with their aptitude and developing skills.

If you’re fortunate enough to find someone who can help you up the career ladder in this way, don’t forget to pay it forward. As you advance in your position, be sure to identify a candidate working in your team for whom you can provide the same kind of mentoring skills for their career development.

2. Chief Problem Solver

From the perspective of many bench scientists and lab technicians, the role of lab manager can seem attractive for several reasons, including increased flexibility in the job, ability to control available resources, and, if we’re honest, increased compensation and future career opportunities.

But, once in the role, many new lab managers realize that, in the words of President Truman, “The Buck Stops Here.”

As problems arise in the laboratory, no matter how big or how small, lab managers have to come up with practical solutions quickly. This can make the role quite stressful, whether it’s due to malfunctioning lab equipment, vendors who fail to deliver reagents on time, or staff members who are away due to illness or other personal matters.

When faced with obstacles such as these, lab managers need to find answers without becoming overwhelmed by stress.

That’s why lab managers must develop the ability to prioritize and address more than one issue at a time (e.g. multitasking). And, as they gain experience, they’ll learn to solve problems as soon as they arise, to always be prepared with a backup plan, and to keep an eye on supply inventories and schedule proactive equipment maintenance.

3. Attention To Detail.

Details matter. A lot.

In the case of clinical testing laboratories, doctors make life or death patient medical decisions based on the results provided by the laboratory.

In scientific research, the credibility of the PI, and the institution as a whole, is on the line when data submitted for publication runs into trouble during the peer review process, whether due to lab errors or other inconsistencies that make the results impossible to replicate.

As a result, lab managers play a critical role in establishing and maintaining the highest quality control standards in an effort to increase precision and accuracy and reduce error and uncertainty in the results.

4. Safety First

Working in a laboratory science environment is not without risk.

Scientists and technicians handling corrosive agents or biological pathogens in a wet lab need to adhere to relevant safety regulations and best practices to minimize the risk of personal injury to the worker – or to the community at large.

The lab manager plays a central role in ensuring that all laboratory equipment meets safety standards and that employees are well-trained and follow safety protocols.

In the larger context, it’s the responsibility of the lab manager to create a safety-first culture that prioritizes safe work practices and discourages risky shortcuts.

5. Demonstrate Leadership

Many first-time managers are under the misapprehension that their job is mostly about setting the rules and enforcing them.

Fortunately, over time, most (hopefully all) new managers begin to realize that their role is quite different. Rather than being a pure rule enforcer, the more sophisticated managers soon realize they are also very much in service to their employees, offering them assistance when they need help to work better and more efficiently, by taking care of the problems that get in the way of accomplishing their tasks.

Taking this approach to management will also make you a more informed leader, one who knows what’s happening on the ground in your organization. This will also allow you to make clear, timely decisions as needed.

6. Maintain Clear Lines Of Communication

Whether one is working in a clinical diagnostic lab within a large healthcare institution, or at a university research lab, the position of lab manager serves as an important conduit of information between bench scientists and lab technicians and the greater organization at large – including key stakeholders, ranging from upper management, human resources, facilities and operations management – as well as government regulators and funding sources.

Novela Neurotech to Present nEureka® for Epilepsy Platform at CapCon 2020 Venture Conference

nEureka® for Epilepsy: an all-in-one system for remote epilepsy monitoring from home

nEureka® for Epilepsy: an all-in-one system for remote epilepsy monitoring from home

nEureka® is a telehealth Data-as-a-Service platform transforming costly episodic care to personalized, efficient, and accessible remote care for epilepsy.

Long gone are the days of intermittent, guess-based healthcare. nEureka® paves the way for people with epilepsy to launch remote visits with their physicians—anytime, anywhere”

— Ray Iskander, CEO

ALAMEDA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2020 / — Novela Neurotech, a Data-as-a-Service company developing personalized remote epilepsy care using connected consumer data, will showcase its nEureka® for Epilepsy platform at the virtual CapCon 2020 Venture Conference, Sep 29 to Oct 1, 2020.

Over 3 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with epilepsy, which is characterized by unpredictable seizures. Although a chronic neurological condition, the current status quo for epilepsy healthcare relies on punctuated clinical visits—often three months apart—which delays critical healthcare decisions for epilepsy management. Roughly 70% of epilepsy cases can be controlled with medication, and medication adherence is a key factor for keeping seizures at bay. Epileptologists often adjust their prescriptions using the patient’s self-reported experience of their seizure counts and side-effects. Therefore, precise seizure counts and side-effect data are critical to inform healthcare decisions.

However, current options for tracking seizures and medication are antiquated & inaccurate, fractured, lacking and episodic.

1) Antiquated & inaccurate: Patients often rely on pen-and-paper journals, or single-function seizure tracking apps, to log their seizures, which easily leads to forgetting and inaccuracies.
2) Fractured: Separate alarms and apps are needed for medication reminders, activity and mood tracking, promoting frustration and confusion.
3) Lacking: Patients who are aware of an impending seizure cannot easily notify family for help. During sleep, 1 in every 150 patients with uncontrolled seizures may experience SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy), a devastating condition that is preventable — if provided with adequate monitoring or intervention methods, which are currently lacking.
4) Episodic: with a 3+ month gap between physician visits, patients experience a lag in critical healthcare to keep their seizures under optimal control.

The nEureka® for Epilepsy system combines everyday consumer devices, a cloud data platform and real-time alerts into a powerful all-in-one Epilepsy Remote Care Solution that resolves current pain points. Wearables embedded with seizure-related biomarker sensors will allow continuous recording of biomarkers, and simplified one-button tracking of seizure events to increase the accuracy of seizure counts. Built under the guidance of epileptologists and people with epilepsy, nEureka® also includes SOS alerts to caregivers—day and night—providing patients with independence, and caregivers with peace-of-mind. All data are seamlessly transferred to the patients’ physician portal, and organized as a dashboard into clean and informative charts for easy 24/7 review and follow-ups.

As certified by Impactable, nEureka® delivers significant healthcare impact including $2B+ reduction in cost to reach optimal treatment in the next 5 years in the US alone, with a 40% improvement in medication adherence.

“Altogether, nEureka® for Epilepsy transforms antiquated Epilepsy Care from single snapshots in time to a continuous, data-rich movie. Long gone are the days of intermittent, guess-based healthcare. nEureka® paves the way for patients to launch remote visits with their physicians—anytime, anywhere,” says Ray Iskander, CEO of Novela Neurotech.

About nEureka®
nEureka® by Novela Neurotech is a telehealth Data-as-a-Service platform transforming current costly episodic care to personalized, efficient, and accessible remote care for epilepsy & other chronic neurological conditions. nEureka® leverages everyday consumer technology and wearables to connect patients with their clinicians and caregivers resulting in continuous care and significantly reducing risk of premature death and care costs.

AARDY, the nation’s fastest Medicare Insurance Marketplace has launched its Medicare Supplement & Advantage comparison guide.

Medicare terminology is confusing, so we wanted to help.
I am delighted with the work put in by our team to launch the new AARDY Medicare Supplement & Medicare Advantage comparison guide.”

— Jonathan Breeze

MIAMI, FL, USA, September 23, 2020 / — AARDY, the nation’s fastest Medicare Insurance Marketplace has launched its Medicare Supplement & Advantage comparison guide.

AARDY Insurance CEO Jonathan Breeze commented:
“Medicare terminology was not designed to be confusing, but it certainly seems that way.

I am delighted with the work put in by our team to launch the new AARDY Medicare Supplement & Medicare Advantage comparison guide.

Additional Medicare insurance coverage can be obtained via either an Advantage Plan or a Supplement.
Medicare Advantage is also referred to as Medicare Part C.
And, Medicare Supplements are also referred to as Medigap.

So, from the outset we have 2 different programs with multiple names – just to add to the confusion that customers already have with Medicare.

Our AARDY Medicare guide will bring great clarity for those who are trying to educate themselves as to the options that exist.

Thereafter, our Medicare comparison system allows customers to compare and contrast policies that are on offer.

Finally, a team of highly experienced Medicare Agents are on-call to help, guide and educate.”

Each year, between October 15 and December 7, Medicare provides an opportunity to sign up or change plans during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP). It is during this period that customers can switch from a Medigap Plan to a Medicare Advantage Plan.

And, it is possible to switch back again. If customers wish to return to Original Medicare from Medicare Advantage, they can do so during the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period, from January 1 to March 30.

AARDY donates 10% of annual profits each and every year to support AARDY Kids of Heroes™ charity partners. Through 2020, AARDY is supporting Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a truly inspirational charity.
