Tivic Health has unveiled the ClearUp Sinus Pain Relief device at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 in Las Vegas. The company describes it as the first bioelectronic treatment for sinus pain. It’s a handheld device which provides a new way to manage sinus pain for the 40 million Americans who suffer from allergic rhinitis.
It’s different from conventional methods of dealing with sinus pain, in that it’s not a pill, nasal flush or spray. This small, handheld device is used exclusively on the outside of the sinus passages.
Simply glide it along the cheek nose and brow bone for it to locate areas of the skin where electrical waveforms can pass easily. This low-current stimulation is called microcurrent and it stimulates the nerves under the skin to provide relief from sinus pain.
It has easy one-button control and three intensity levels for customization. The device offers quick five-minute treatment and is portable enough that users can carry it with themselves when they’re out and about. Tivic Health mentions that the device has been clinically proven to be safe and affective. It has also received FDA clearance.
The company is planning to sell ClearUp Sinus Pain Relief in the summer this year. It will be priced at $149.
