Devices to help pain
AgingInPlace.com reports on the ‘National Health and Aging Trends Study’. It shows that over one-half of senior adults suffer from a bothersome pain, and three-quarters of those suffer from more than one pain. Sana Health has developed the technology to help those who suffer from chronic issues that pain medications do little to help. It is a wearable device that uses pulsating light and sound to reduce the pain at its source.
To age in place successfully requires advanced planning. The plan should be based on your long-term needs and how they will change over time. Have a conversation with your doctor about your health concerns. The doctor will have recommendations on technological assistive devices and modifications to your home.
