PainQx is a diagnostic/software company that has developed a next generation approach to objectively measure pain in humans. The PainQx platform achieves this by assessing neural activity from a patient’s brain and processing and decoding the data through proprietary algorithms. The output is a scaled pain and neurological side effects biomarker that is directly correlated to a patient’s pain state.
The PainQx system is currently being used as a clinical assessment tool by companies using pain as a primary or secondary clinical end point to measure their drug’s and/or device’s efficacy.

The Insanity of Pain Management in the ER
A Doctor's Perspective
“One of medicine's ethical traditions is to relieve suffering whenever possible...My dilemma is, even after practicing medicine for over 30 years, the definition of a "suffering patient" has become a moving target."
"Unfortunately, our triage nurses almost never see a patient whose pain level is less than 10, and many are well over 10. Examples of “10 out of 10” pain in our ED in West Philadelphia include hangnails, paper cuts on fingers, and menstrual cramps.”
