New Medical Device Successfully Treating Fibromyalgia Pain in the EU
SAN DIEGO, Sept. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AVACEN Medical (AVACEN) announced that its CE-Marked AVACEN 100 Class ll medical device is now successfully helping those with the widespread pain associated with fibromyalgia in the European Union.
Fibromyalgia diagnosed Amanda in Essex, England commented, "I had difficulty driving, getting dressed and washing my hair, experiencing no sleep at all, tremendous pain, with every movement sending my body in painful spasm… I cannot recommend [the AVACEN 100] enough, how this has and is helping me… the physio will be amazed with my progress.
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.
