VQ OrthoCare® Re-Introduces The BioniCare Hand System
VQ OrthoCare®, the leading provider of non-invasive, non-drug medical solutions focused on bone, joint and soft-tissue conditions, today re-introduced the BioniCare Hand System, now indicated for osteoarthritis of the hand in addition to rheumatoid arthritis. The BioniCare Hand System is designed to reduce the pain and symptoms of arthritis and improve function without the risks associated with drugs or surgery. The unique electrical signal, specifically designed for arthritis is delivered via electrodes and a conductive glove.
The BioniCare Hand System features the BIO-2000, a touch screen signal generator with a Bluetooth tracking option that uploads the patient’s usage information to the BioniCare Patient Portal where they can track their treatment progress and print records for their physician. The system also includes a form-fitting, stretchable conductive glove with adhesive fingertip conductors and a rechargeable battery
“At VQ OrthoCare, our goal is to develop pain management alternatives that are simple and effective for patients to use,” said Jim Knape, president and founder, VQ OrthoCare. “Arthritis in the hand and especially the thumb, makes it incredibly hard for people to do simple daily tasks, such as picking up a book or using a phone. The BioniCare system enables patient’s self-management of their pain and symptoms without drugs or surgery.”
