SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the home pain management industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Omron Healthcare, Inc. with the 2017 North America New Product Innovation Award. In line with the  growing awareness of the opioid epidemic, Omron Healthcare, Inc. (Omron) created its new Heat Pain Pro TENS Unitâ€�”the first device on the market that combines TENS technology and heat -- a combination used by physical therapists to maximize therapy effectiveness. The innovative product has multiple modes and intensity levels, empowering users to tailor their pain relief based on their specific needs.

Omron's advanced Heat Pain Pro TENS Unit integrates a heating component because it aids in pain management and end users understand its effectiveness. Furthermore, by providing heat and TENS in a single unit, customers do not have to purchase multiple solutions to achieve pain relief.

"The increased focus on the opioid epidemic will shift pain management solutions toward a device-centric focus to alleviate opioid dependence. As a result, companies with systems demonstrating effective solutions that minimize opioid dependence are well-positioned for rapid growth," said Swarna Sundar, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

Omron Healthcare empowers users to personalize their pain relief management through different modes, including:

  • Two delivery modesâ€�”(1) alternating heat and TENS for one minute each, for thirty minutes, or (2) delivering 15 minutes of heat followed by 15 minutes of TENS
  • Two heat settingsâ€�”(1) 107° Fahrenheit or (2) 110° Fahrenheit, three massage modes: (1) tap, (2) knead, or (3) rub
  • Preset modes for six specific body partsâ€�”(1) arm, (2) lower back, (3) leg, (4) foot, (5) joint, and (6) shoulder pain
  • Twenty intensity level settings: steadily increasing the intensity

"The system's overall cost provides long-term value to its customers, considering the system is versatile and easy-to-use, delivers high TENS power for pain relief, and has a long lifespan. Omron plans to conduct a study to demonstrate the savings that users experience leveraging Omron TENS devices and pads compared to the competitive offerings," said Swarna Sundar, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

Current users experience various levels of pain relief depending on pain levels, pain location, and the frequency and intensity of device use. The accepted use standard of TENS is three times per day, allowing users to relieve their pain throughout the day as needed.

"Millions of Americans suffer from daily pain. Whether they are experiencing back pain, aching knees, joint pain or chronic discomfort, people are looking for safer, more effective pain management options," said Carol Lucarelli, director of marketing and product development for Omron Healthcare, Inc. "Increased awareness of the potential dangers of opioids and prescription pain killers is driving more consumer interest in pain management options. The Omron HEAT Pain Pro is a safe, effective, accessible drug-free choice."
