Remedee Labs, endorphin stimulation for chronic pain relief

Published on 15 December 2022
​A customizable, drug-free long-term pain treatment solution for better quality of life.

Remedee Labs has developed the first millimeter-wave-emitting bracelet that stimulates the production of endorphins, the body's natural analgesics. It also offers an online service platform to bring patients multidisciplinary pain management backed by personalized support.

Remedee Labs has developed a total treatment package: an endorphin-stimulating bracelet based on millimeter-wave technology, a personalized support program, and digital services.

Millimeter-wave treatment was used successfully on millions of pain patients in the1970s. Over time, however, the treatment, which could only be administered in hospitals due to the large equipment used, has been replaced by pain medication. Remedee Labs is putting millimeter-wave technology at everyone’s fingertips with a simple bracelet equipped with a microelectronic chip that stimulates natural endorphin production.

The solution is currently being tested with patients suffering from fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and migraines at Grenoble University Medical Center. The goal is to obtain medical device approval for the bracelet in 2024.

The startup is offering an initial non-medical bracelet, Remedee Well, to improve users’ day-to-day well being. The package includes the bracelet plus access to the online platform.

Remedee Labs has a portfolio of nine patents, including X CEA patents. It is collaborating with the CEA on imaging-based brain evaluation of the physiological effects of its technology.
