What is the FIRSTtx device?
The FIRSTtx is a small hand held medical device for the elimination or management of pain. The FIRSTtx is FDA cleared for Acute, Chronic and Post Operative pain.
The FIRSTtx technology incorporates realtime biofeedback capability. This advanced technology allows the user to locate, target and immediately and effectively treat their pain. The FIRSTtx is designed for both professional and home/personal use.
It is NOT a TENS device and it is safe and simple to use. Unlike a TENS device, electrical signals generated by the FIRSTtx device are similar in form to the body’s own natural neurological impulses. This way the body recognizes them as compatible and non invasive. By placing the device on the skin, the FIRSTtx facilitates pain relief while triggering and enhancing the recovery process.
The FIRSTtx delivers non-invasive; therapeutic neural stimulation via a patient’s skin with no discomfort to the user. The FIRSTtx is a class 2 medical device. That means if you are not a licensed medical professional in the United States, you are required to have a doctors prescription to rent or buy a device for your personal use or only a licensed professional can treat you.
Telling your doctor about the FIRSTtx:
If you would like to purchase a device and your doctor has not yet heard of the FIRSTtx or non-invasive neuro-modulation therapy for pain, we’ve provided a link below for you to download the FIRSTtx white paper to give to your physician.
This is not new technology and has been successfully utilized for over 30 years in other countries. It is just beginning to become more readily noticed in the United States and healthcare professionals are currently being educated and trained throughout the US.
If you are on medications, your healthcare provider needs to know that as your FIRSTtx treatments progress, your body may become more responsive to those drugs, making them more potent OR as many patients report, a decrease in need or ceasing all together of pain medication usage.
