The costs of chronic pain

  • OHS is a critical element for companies
  • Companies put a lot of effort into preventing absenteeism caused by different sources (demobilization, accidents, physical or psychological illness, etc.).
  • Chronic pain is one of the most important scourges facing our society in general:
  • According to the CANADIAN CHRONIC PAIN GROUP's June 2019 report, chronic pain costs businesses between $49 and $53 billion...
  • Absenteeism, which accounts for 34% of costs, is estimated to cost
  • Presenteeism accounts for 66% and is estimated to cost between $33 and $36 billion.
  • It is estimated that people with chronic pain can be absent from work between 9.3 days and 16 days per year depending on the severity of their condition. Source: Quebec Chronic Pain Association

Functional Electro-Therapy

An innovative therapeutic approach that uses transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) both at rest and during the patient's functional activities.

Managing Pain while Remaining Active

We propose a therapeutic approach designed to facilitate the use of a TENS without the employee having to interrupt his/her activities

Compact and lightweight, our TENS can be worn discreetly all day long without interfering with the employee's movements

  • Early adoption of effective pain relief strategies should not only promote better pain control, but also prevent or at least minimize the risk of 'chronicity' and the resulting functional limitations and disabilities.

Promoting Safe and Non-Pharmacological Treatments

The use of TENS, even over a long period of time, does not present any risk of addiction.

Electrotherapy does not cause any undesirable side effects
