The San Diego, Calif.-based company’s Oska Pulse device is designed to use pulsed electromagnetic field technology as a complement to physical therapy to help reduce pain and inflammation from injuries.
“Oska Pulse trials have focused on new recruits and is proving effective in keeping users on schedule during rigorous physical activities and demanding schedules. Initial feedback from these military personnel, many of whom experience pain such as ankle, back, shoulder, neck and other muscular strains and sprains, have reported positive results from using Oska Pulse in relation to faster pain reduction when used in conjunction with traditional physical therapy,” CEO Greg Houlgate said in a press release.
“Other benefits such as improvements in sleep and reductions in phantom pain have been reported. From a welfare perspective, these are potentially life-changing outcomes and could have major implications for personnel experiencing PTSD-related conditions. We have provided independent, third-party research material to expand the study,” COO & CFO Steve Collins said in prepared remarks.
The device is a portable, drug-free, hands-free device which is designed to help release natural endorphins in the body to reduce pain. The company said its device operates through “sequential protocol programming” which delivers 4 frequencies related to muscle relaxation, bone repair, capillary dilation and pain reduction.
