Retired NFL Quarterback Vinny Testaverde Endorses NanoVibronix's SPORT Painshield™

ELMSFORD, NY--(Marketwired - August 02, 2016) - NanoVibronix, Inc, (OTCQB: NAOV), a medical device company, announced today that Vinny Testaverde, retired quarterback who played 21 seasons in the NFL and Heisman trophy winner, has endorsed NanoVibronix's SPORT Painshield for relief of joint and back pain.

Like many retired sports players, Vinny suffered chronic joint pain and back pain. Traditional treatments such as icing and opioids only provided temporary and marginal relief.

Vinny started using SPORT Painshield and has reported remarkable results. After a few days of treatment, he reported his knee pain went from a 7 to a 3 on the VAS pain scale and his back pain went from a 6 to a 0 on the VAS pain scale. Vinny recommends Painshield to anyone who is suffering from joint and back pain. Click on the link to watch the interview with Vinny Testaverde:

SPORT Painshield was recently exhibited at the National Trainers Association meeting in Baltimore. It was well received by over 7000 sports trainers who attended which resulted in direct sales and potential partnerships.

SPORT PainShield generates and delivers localized, low frequency, targeted "slow release" therapeutic ultrasound through a self-adhering patch, placed next to the treated area, for a period of up to 6.5 hours.

Product usage has shown wide range of applications including:

  • Reduction of acute and chronic pain (e.g trigeminal neuralgia)
  • Heel spur
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendon injury treatment, (achilles tendonitis, tendonitis elbow, tendonitis knee, tendonitis wrist, tendonitis shoulder)
  • Various musco-skeletal injuries and post-operative pain
  • Female and male abdominal pain

SPORT PainShield may be used immediately post-injury and post-op. The product is patch based and does not require medical personnel to apply it and hold it in place while receiving therapy. Patient benefits include its ease of application and use, faster recovery time, high compliance, safety, and effectiveness. SPORT PainShield has received CE Mark and FDA clearance.
