Featured Israeli Company: BlueWind Medical

BlueWind Medical logoIn the US, reports show that nearly 100 million people suffer from chronic pain. Whether from injury, prolonged illness or other conditions, the number of people suffering from pain and chronic pain is rising.

Many of us know the effects that chronic pain can have on our lives, our jobs, and our families. But chronic pain and its management can also take a devasting toll, financially. According to a recent Institute of Medicine Report pain is a significant public health problem that costs upwards of $600 billion annually – that’s about $2,000.00 per US citizen.

Managing chronic pain and other conditions can also be difficult as many treatments aren’t sufficient or, as is the in many US states, drug addiction to prescription pain medications can become deadly.

But BlueWind Medical is hoping to change the numbers. Founded in Israel in 2010 by Israeli innovation and investment company Rainbow Medical, BlueWind Medical aims to relieve patients pain, suffering, discomfort, and disability through neurostimulation. Typically neurostimulation is a highly invasive, and often complex surgical operation. But BlueWind is developing a platform technology of miniature wireless neurostimulators that can be placed in a minimally invasive procedure to treat multiple conditions.

Currently, BlueWind is developing products that could treat overactive bladder and associated symptoms as well as chronic intractable pain.
