AVACEN Treatment for Fibromyalgia

- By


Fibromyalgia has recently been thrust into the spotlight by Lady Gaga revealing she has been living with the disorder, which is characterized by chronic widespread pain. Per the National Fibromyalgia Association, fibromyalgia affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. and an estimated 3-6% of the world population.

The incidence rises with age, so that by age 80, approximately 8% of adults meet the American College of Rheumatology classification of fibromyalgia. It has a devastating impact on those who suffer from the disease and their personal support systems. In addition, it imposes a large economic burden on public and private healthcare providers.

The AVACEN Treatment Method

The AVACEN Treatment Method, an entirely new concept in chronic pain treatment by noninvasively and safely infusing heat into the circulatory system to create muscular relaxation while increasing microcirculation throughout the body. Unlike other medical devices providing local pain relief, the AVACEN 100’s unique mechanism of action offers widespread pain relief.

The AVACEN 100

The AVACEN 100 is a Class II medical device that uses the AVACEN Treatment Method. It recently received CE (Conformité Européenne) Mark approval to treat widespread pain associated with fibromyalgia.  The CE Mark allows AVACEN to market the AVACEN 100 to the European Union’s 28 member countries where many prescription drugs available in the U.S. have been rejected by regulatory officials for treating fibromyalgia pain.

The device was initially licensed by the Canadian Health Department for treatment of arthritis. After analyzing the effectiveness of the device for arthritis, it was also licensed for the treatment of fibromyalgia. The major factor that contributed to the attainment of the license by this device is the fact that it does not use drugs for the treatment of pain.

Non-invasive, rapid whole-body treatment

AVACEN Medical CEO Thomas Muehlbauer described the AVACEN 100 as “the only medical device on the market today able to provide non-invasive, rapid whole-body treatment, using a single point of contact. It is the ideal drug-free and safe alternative for relief of muscle and joint pain.” Muehlbauer added, “Our newly published and peer-reviewed research shows 100% positive results were recorded for the full therapeutic treatment group.”

Approval for fibromyalgia treatment

CE approval for fibromyalgia treatment was based on a Clinical Evaluation Report which highlighted AVACEN’s very promising 22-person fibromyalgia study. One hundred percent (100%) positive results were recorded for the full therapeutic treatment group.

The AVACEN study was conducted under a Cooperative Research Development Agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs at the University of California San Diego Center for Pain Medicine, Perlman Medical Center and the VA Medical Center, San Diego.

The Society for Neuroscience 2013 Annual Meeting abstract program disclosed the 28-day AVACEN follow-up study produced a statistically significant reduction of over 40% in the widespread pain index and a reduction in average tender point counts from approximately 15 to 9 (11 is used for clinical assessment).

AVACEN Medical

AVACEN Medical is dedicated to the innovation and design of safe, easy to use, noninvasive drug-free alternatives for the management of pain associated with numerous chronic and acute conditions including the temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness associated with arthritis and potentially other conditions that can cause joint pain, such as CRPS, Reynaud’s, and Lyme Disease.

Effectiveness of Avacen 100

Avacen 100 can possibly prove to be effective in pain management due to its precise yet efficient functionality. The patient is required to place their hand on the heating pad that is a part of the device. This has the following effects on the body:

  • >It decreases nervous coordination with muscles.
  • >It relieves pain in the joints.
  • >It relieves muscle pain.
  • >Only using the heating pad for half an hour every day can provide effective relief.

Researchers tested the device in different ways to determine whether the device fulfills all the parameters of pain relief. It was found in the result that Avacen 100 managed to have a positive effect in all three of the following scales.

  • >Widespread Pain Index
  • >Symptom Severity Score
  • >Tender Point Count

How the AVACEN Treatment Method works.

Muehlbauer explains by saying, “The key is the continued infusion of heat into the circulatory system through the palm when the body is at normothermia, approximately 98.6 degrees F. The heat acts as a catalyst to reduce the thickness of the blood.

The result is the body must dissipate the unwanted heat by pumping the warmed and thinner blood through the skeletal muscles to reach the heat exchange capillary network where it can be cooled by the ambient air.” You heard right: the AVACEN Treatment is basically spa therapy for your internal organs, such as important pain receptors like the muscles.

That’s some serious muscular relaxation! In case you are concerned about the possibility of body temperatures becoming too warm, Muehlbauer continues by stating, “It should be noted that the level of heat is precisely controlled so that it cannot induce heatstroke. Actually, the level of infused heat normally doesn’t even engage the sweat glands.”

It sounds like the study, which was performed by the The University of California, San Diego and the Department of Veterans Affairs, is close to a complete breakthrough which will change the fibromyalgia community forever.
