Connecticut Patent of the Month – April 2023

Calmare Therapeutics Inc. is a biotherapeutic company focused on developing proprietary pain mitigation and wound care technologies. Their technology offers non-pharmacological, non-addictive, and non-invasive solutions for chronic pain sufferers.

In line with this mission the company has recently patented an innovative system for the treatment of chronic pain through electrical stimulation. The system involves generating and applying random electrical stimulation signals in a frequency range of 5 Hz to 2 KHz to a patient via electrodes. The system uses a library of non-pulsed waveforms to generate the stimulation signals, with each waveform having a rise time greater than 10 microseconds.

Initial parameters are set based on a clinician’s assessment of the patient’s symptoms and an initial set of quantitative pain metrics provided by the patient. The system takes the patient’s pain metrics seriously, ensuring the voltage of each waveform never surpasses this threshold. 

The Calmare Therapeutics system offers a promising new treatment option for chronic pain sufferers. It offers a flexible and adjustable treatment option with minimal risk or harmful side effects.
