Wireless Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation Device to Ease Chronic Pain

A new device called Cur designed by a San Francisco-based company called Huge Design that aims to provide an alternative to pain medication for people with chronic pain.

Cur is compact and wireless version of TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) systems, a therapy that relieves pain temporarily by sending low levels of electrical current to the brain and decreases the amount of pain.

The device has rechargeable battery and can work for up to 3 hours. The device uses adhesive gel pads that can be stuck to the back or wrapped around arm and leg.

The device can work continuously for 60 hours when used with powered carrying case. The device can also be programmed wirelessly through a smartphone.

Cur is not a cure for chronic pain but can provide relief from pain. "The user can wear cur at work or during a run without asking for help from a professional," said, Cur founder Shaun Rahimi, a biomedical engineer.
