Move over pace makers there is a new implant that could be life changing. Only this one could mean the end of back pain and dangerous pain pills.
The ReActive8 is being used in Europe on a human test trial. All of the volunteers had previously been given medication to combat their symptoms, but to no avail. They were also found to be unsuitable for spinal surgery. With the ReActiv8 implanted they received an electric shock to nerves close to the spine in the morning and evening. In three months more than half the participants noted a drastic reduction in pain and researchers believe in 3 years their pain will be nonexistent.
