Has anyone heard of or used the "Scrambler?" Is it effective?

Posted by lorirenee1 @lorirenee1, Mar 4, 2019

Saw this on the mayo clinic site. It is an abbreviation for a device that scrambles messages to the brain and interferes with getting neuropathic pain. Has anyone tried it? I do have a pain clinic in Illinois that uses it, but I am wondering if it actually works to stop pain.

@lorirenee1 is this the article you saw on the Mayo Clinic site?

@janetdh, @mikween, and @swiss have mentioned the Scrambler (MC-5A Calmare Therapy) and may have more information.
