When a loved one is in pain…

Pain is something we all feel, but it is not something we always feel comfortable expressing. Not wanting to be a wimp, not wanting to bother a family member, not wanting to complain, or simply not being able to communicate pain are all very common feelings. When a loved one can’t tell you their discomfort, you end up guessing and becoming overly sensitive to their non-verbal cues that signal discomfort. Hospital staff face the same problem in trying to guess a patient’s pain, with only a “smiley face chart” of pain levels to help gather the needed information.

AccendoWave “reads the mind” of the patient to ensure accurate assessment of discomfort, and provide diversionary and entertaining content to ease the suffering while notifying hospital staff of pain levels in real time.
