Preliminary Study Findings

PhotoMed’s team conducted studies to test the lunatic idea that people could switch back-to-normal after years of conventional interventions failed to do the job. The pain specialty anesthesiologists and neurologists started their studies curiously and then kept enthusiastically working pro bono.

The team specifically asked researchers to avoid selection bias by primarily inviting their patients with long duration and high-intensity pain where nothing had worked before. About 75% of patients met that category. Traditional pain studies that aim to confirm a hypothesis typically and intentionally exclude people like that.

More than 500 people volunteered in the studies at 7 sites (California [3], Massachusetts, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Florida).




Sensory impairments

  • Loss of sensation in fingers or toes

  • Mirror-neuron synesthesia



Motor impairments

  • Loss of grip strength and movement
