In Israel, they came up with a way to cope with pain in critical days without pills

Let’s be honest: menstruation is not the happiest days in a woman’s life. In addition to the mass of well-known inconveniences, almost every second person experiences pain, and severe. Of course, painkillers save you in an emergency. That’s just a tricky female body has the ability to adapt to drugs, so some ladies in a couple of years have time to try all the analgesics available at the nearest pharmacy. And in General, being dependent on drugs is not healthy and not healthy. It is good that there are people who are working on a global solution to this problem. For example, the “pain-off button” will soon go on sale these days.More than half of girls and women around the world experience pain of varying degrees of intensity during critical days. Someone complains of a slight indisposition, someone loses consciousness from a painful shock. To all who have faced the harsh female reality, the latest invention of Israeli scientists – Livia-is addressed.
Livia is practically a button for disabling pain on critical days. The device really resembles a bright button or a small mp3 player. But instead of headphones, it has two electrodes (also, by the way, not threatening). You should attach the Livia to the belt, attach the electrodes with soft silicone patches to the body at the level of the ovaries, turn on the device – and the pain will be removed by hand.
The development is based on the so-called “gate theory” or pain blockers: a painless pulse “closes the gate” of the nerves, and as a result, the pain signal does not reach the Central nervous system. The brain simply” doesn’t hear ” the pain. So Livia generates completely painless impulses that distract the nerves from painful signals.
Livia offers a simple and safe solution to periodic pain. No pills, no addiction and no side effects. The device can be used for as long as necessary, without experiencing discomfort, and it is easy to hide under clothing. And, in the end, what savings on medicines!
And the” pain-off button ” Livia looks nice and is available in a wide (and very feminine) color scheme. And even with removable silicone cases.
The Livia project was launched on the indiegogo crowdfunding platform. Although the development team has two months to complete its fundraising, Livia has already raised one and a half times as much money as planned.
