PainScan is a digital health solution that automates pain assessment to improve the accuracy of pain diagnosis. The PainScan Exam results in a collaborative process between doctor and patient with both participants working together during a physical exam. The shared experience of generating the PainScan Report (personalized pain map) ensures that the doctor and patient are both on the same page, sharing the same understanding of the full pain picture, and validating the patient’s pain experience.

PainScan lets doctors see what their patients feel.

Measuring and Mapping Pain Intensity onto a 3D Digital Twin of the Patient

PainScan Exam with Camera Field of View Shown for Clarity:
  • Clinician conducts PainScan Exam using palpation (touch) to locate patient’s pain.
  • Computer vision with Machine Learning captures palpation locations on patient’s body in 3D space.
  • Patient uses PainGrip to silently express pain level for each palpation.

Gloves capture amount of pressure and duration of touch at each palpation location.

The patient and doctor are then provided a 3D version of the Painscan Report which can also be shared with other doctors and specialists, similar to sharing X-rays. However, PainScan Exams are non-invasive and non-radiological. Just as X-rays made bones visible, PainScan makes pain visible.
