Frequently Asked Questions

Our Pain Checker products give pain relief using our patented Bio-Electric Carbon Technology! This patented fabric uses a proprietary blend of soft, conductive carbon yarns and non-conductive yarns to create a grid-like fabric. Energy from the body and external environment is absorbed by the product, before the small electrical impulses are delivered back to the body, generating a small pain-relieving current when in contact with a pain site on your body.

In this way, our fabric uses the body’s natural current to target and treat pain in a natural, safe way.

Yes, Pain Checker products are safe! Our products and sleeves all use our Bio-Electric Carbon Technology, which uses an electrical current generated by your own body. If you have a Pacemaker, do not use unless approved by a physician.

For use ages 12 and up.

Pain Checker products are all safe for use, clinically tested, and have proven their success! Some of our current endorsements include endorsements from the head trainer for the New York Jets, David Price, and Dr. Ken Faust.
