CLEVELAND and ALPHARETTA, Ga. – What if eliminating physical pain was a matter of flipping a switch to block it? No drug needed. When it’s time to stop the block, just turn it off.
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University hope to eventually treat chronic or acute pain by using energy-based neuromodulation technology, which is in development. The university’s Technology Transfer Office has signed a sponsored research agreement with Halyard Health Inc., in Alpharetta, Ga., near Atlanta, to collaborate on technology development.
