Clinical Study Shows that 92% of patients report resolution of migraine headaches using Vivos’ POD(r), Appliance Treatment.
Study Data Highlights Vivos Treatment Option as Highly Effective in Treating Migraine, One of World’s Most Common Conditions
The results of a clinical observational study conducted by Vivos on the use of the Preventive Oral Device (r), also known as the POD (r), in the treatment and prevention migraine headaches.
Ninety-two (92%) percent of the study patients reported that their migraine symptoms had been completely resolved after treatment. The results were also maintained in follow-up visits from 3 to 28 month after treatment. The validated Migraine Disability Assessment Questionnaire was used to measure the severity of migraines. Prior to treatment, patients had a mean MIDAS of 23.96 +/-21.34. Following treatment, they had a MIDAS of 2.58 +/-4.87. This is a reduction of almost 89.2%.
According to the American Migraine Foundation, migraine headaches affect 39 million Americans alone. Many people choose to live in pain for decades after a treatment that was ineffective. Vivos offers a new treatment that is non-pharmaceutical and highly effective.
“For the tens and millions of migraine sufferers in the United States, we believe that our new POD (r) option could be a game changer. About 9 out of 10 migraine patients have reported relief from their migraines after using this technology. Kirk Huntsman, Chairman and CEO of Vivos, said that this novel oral device technology can not only relieve migraines but also treat TMD, teeth-grinding (also known as bruxism), and many other conditions relating to breathing and sleeping disorders. “We believe that the potential of this novel technology is just beginning to be realized. We are working to obtain FDA clearances for additional chronic and debilitating conditions. We expect that this high-margin new product line will begin contributing to Vivos revenue in the second quarter of this year, as we strive to achieve cash flow positive operations.”
Vivos Therapeutics has acquired the patents for The POD (r) a FDA 510k cleared medical device. The custom device is worn while sleeping to treat Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction. It helps with symptoms such as headaches and neck or facial pain, pain around the ear or in the ear canal, pain when you chew, clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing your jaw, or difficulty opening widely. TMD is more common in people who experience headaches, aching muscles in the jaw, disturbed sleep, fatigue during the day, or dizziness. Anxiety and depression are also associated with TMD.
