There are currently no clinically accepted tools to objectively assess pain. Clinicians must rely on patients’ subjective assessments, or simply guess when patients can’t communicate.
NOL™ (Nociception level) Index, is the only pain assessment index based on dozens of pain-related physiological parameters and clinically validated as superior to other nociception/pain indicators 1,2.
The PMD-200™ is a pain monitoring device, based on the patented NOL™ technology, the PMD-200 provides objective, non-invasive, and continuous monitoring of the physiological response to pain.
Medasense develops innovative systems and applications to objectively assess the physiological response to pain, providing insight throughout the pain management process for accurate and personalized pain care. Medasense’s innovative technology platform acquires, processes and analyzes dozens of physiological parameters, transforming them into a single index by using artificial intelligence algorithms. The clinically validated technology is superior to existing pain indicators 1,2.
