for many hours. However, it
wasn't until the 1960s
that two scientists, Ronald
Melzack and Patrick Wall,
researched the process
and named it the 'gate
control theory of pain'.
Quote 'Dr Jessen'
They found that
stimulating the vibration
for special price of
sensors in the body
causes the pain signal
to be blocked on its way
to the brain, producing a
pain-relieving effect. This is
due to the spinal column being
unable to carry both the pain signal
and vibration signal together. The
introduction of the vibratory signal
'closed the gate' to the pain signal.
With this in mind, Kneease was
developed as a pain-relief device,

octors have been looking
for a successful treatment for
osteoarthritic knee pain for
many years. Although knee
replacement surgery is generally
successful, most patients who are
referred are not suitable for surgery.
Until recently, these patients could
only be treated with medication or
weight loss and exercise. Painkillers can
be very effective, however there can be
risks associated with long-term use and
many patients simply don't like the idea
of having to take drugs indefinitely.
While weight loss can be very
effective, patients can't always
manage this, not least because exercise
is difficult when the knee is painful.
A safe and easy-to-use breakthrough
treatment, without side-effects, was
needed. And surprisingly, it had already
been discovered in 1892, during the
American Civil War. The technique
used over 150 years ago is becoming
increasingly available today as an
effective method of pain relief.
On the battlefield, with no anaesthetic
to tend the wounded, it was discovered
that soldiers with painful amputation
stumps could obtain relief by having
their stump 'drummed' with drumsticks
at a particular frequency. Remarkably,
this produced pain relief that lasted
pain and helps
COMPLETE PAIN RELIEF
WITHOUT THE NEED
and has now been launched specifically
to target osteoarthritis knee pain.
The battery-powered unit vibrates at
the precise frequency to relieve pain.
Kneease was tested with a large group
of osteoarthritis patients in a clinical trial
and the results were impressive. Many
obtained complete pain relief without
the need for medication, and almost all
were able to reduce their pain-relief
medication to much safer levels.
There was also a reduction in stiffness
of the knee joint and greater mobility,
which helped many patients to take up
exercise and start to lose weight.
Although the device isn't a miracle
cure for osteoarthritis, trials have shown
the vibration therapy gives the user
significant pain relief. In the case
of some patients, this allowed them to
delay the need for a knee replacement.
Targeting the point of pain, the
medically certified device is small,
portable and really easy to use - and
thousands of patients have been
successfully treated with it.
