When you鈥檙e in pain it鈥檚 hard to focus on, well, anything. Even just walking to your car can feel like climbing Mount Everest. And staying focused in a meeting with a sore back? Forget about it. Chronic pain plagues one in three Americans. From injury flare-ups to non-stop pain, many people are navigating their lives around their pain and popping pain meds just to try and deal with it. But that鈥檚 no way to be. The thing is, even if you can鈥檛 actually fix the thing that is causing you the pain, you can fix it by making your body think it isn鈥檛 there. If your brain never gets a pain signal, then you never feel the pain, and that鈥檚 how Cur works.

It works by sending a non-painful electrical current to your brain before that pesky pain signal gets a chance to. You can literally feel the effects in seconds. It looks like a large Band-Aid, except with a techy upgrade. Cur is smart and it adjusts to your personal pain needs as they come because it鈥檚 self-calibrating. You can further adjust the settings using the app.

So what鈥檚 the status on this pain-nixing miracle strip? It鈥檚 still in the process of getting FDA approval, but you can pre-order one now for $149 and expect to get it this winter. Compared to the $10K you鈥檇 spend on a full-on TENS machine the doctors use, this sounds like a great investment.
