About Paindrainer AB
Paindrainer AB is a company developing digital platforms and applications contributing to health and well-being. Paindrainer was founded in 2018 by Prof. Carl Borrebaeck, Dr. Maria Rosén Klement, and Göran Barkfors (IT specialist). The idea was born when Maria, after participating in several pain rehabilitation programs, realized that the pain is affected by more factors than the human brain can keep track of, since all days are different.
The Paindrainer® App coaches the users in managing their pain and planning their day not to exceed a certain pain level, and to ensure that there is enough energy left for activities highly valued. The solution is powered by leveraging unique advanced algorithms and is fully adaptive to each patient, a feature called 360 o patient-centricity©.
The Paindrainer® App is the first evidence based digital tool demonstrating improved quality of life in patients suffering from chronic pain.
The Paindrainer® App (Paindrainer PD1) is an FDA registered Medical Device Class 1, MDR compliant and CE certified.
