Clinical research shows TensCam is safe and effective in relieving low-back pain

A 2002 double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study at the University of Central Florida revealed the safety and effectiveness of TensCam in relieving low-back pain. Ninety-eight subjects, including males age 18 and older and females age 45 and older, participated in the study; all suffered from low-back pain resulting from a sprain, strain or injury.

Participants were randomly divided into two groups. The test group received actual CAMS treatments; the control group received sham treatments from an identical-looking placebo device. Neither the participants nor the researchers administering the treatments knew which CAMS device was real and which was the placebo.

Before the treatment, study participants were asked to rate their level of pain on the 10-point visual analog scale. The researchers then asked the participants to re-evaluate their level of pain 10 minutes after the treatment, and again 24 hours later. Participants did not take any over-the-counter or prescription pain relievers beginning 12 hours before the treatment until after the 24-hour post-treatment evaluation.

The study revealed:

  • 60% of the test group of 48 who received the actual CAMS treatment reported improvement 10 minutes after treatment; 63% improved at the 24-hour evaluation.
  • 36% of the control group of 50 who were treated with the placebo device showed improvement 10 minutes after treatment; improvement declined to 22% at the 24-hour evaluation.
  • There were no complications or side-effects.
