CES 2018: Oska Pulse aims to relieve pain without medication

Oska Pulse is a compact, rechargeable and wearable device that uses electromagnetic pulses to relieve pain. The pulses pass through tissue and bones and aid the body’s recovery process.

Designed to combat pain through pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT), the Oska Pulse was unveiled at CES 2018, which was held in Las Vegas on 9-12 January.

This compact and sleek device boasts proprietary eTec technology, reports Clubic.


Effects that boost the body’s natural recovery mechanisms


This innovative device enhances the already beneficial effects of PEMFT by acting on bones and tissues to speed the body’s natural recovery process. According to the engineers behind the Oska Pulse, it provides a genuine alternative to medication, which can sometimes have unwanted side effects. Boasting the appearance of a state-of-the-art computer mouse, the device can be ordered online from Oska or Amazon for $399, approximately €325.

The California-based company’s website states that the Oska Pulse can be used to treat muscle, joint and chronic back, elbow and knee pain, which, along with stress and circulation problems, are already regularly treated by therapies based on magnetic waves. The device has been registered with the US Food & Drug Administration, an indication of how safe it is.


Technology that goes with its users everywhere


The device’s biggest asset is the ease with which users can wear and walk around with it all day long. Small in size, the Oska Pulse weighs nothing more than 60 grams. Once charged, its batteries run on cycles of about 14 to 20 minutes, though it must be worn with care by cancer sufferers, people fitted with pacemakers and pregnant women.

The device takes its name from a koala that suffered serious burns in a fire in the Australian bush. Named “Oscar”, the animal received conventional treatment for his injuries and was treated with PEMFT to reduce pain, thus facilitating and accelerating its cure.
