Discover the latest developments from PainChek


PainChek expands integration partnerships, strengthens remote digital capabilities, and more.

It has been a busy month at PainChek.  

September was World Alzheimer's Month, and the entire PainChek team has been hard at work to spread awareness around how accurate pain assessment can improve quality of care and quality of life for those living with the disease. As part of this, we recently released our free white paper 'Pain and COVID-19: The perfect storm', created in partnership with PainChek CEO Philip Daffas, Painaustralia CEO Carol Bennett, and Dr. Jennifer Abbey AM, Founder of the Abbey Pain Scale.

We are pleased to share that we have also expanded our integration partnerships with leading care management system (CMS) providers in Australia and the UK, in order to provide more residents in aged care with access to safe and effective pain assessment.

If you have not done so already, there’s still time to register for an Australian Federal Government funded 12-month PainChek license. Simply register your interest with us using the link below, and a member of our team will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

About PainChek® 

PainChek Ltd is an Australian based company that develops pain assessment technologies. 

PainChek® is a smart-phone based medical device using artificial intelligence to assess and score pain levels in real time and update medical records in the cloud. 

PainChek® records a short video of the person’s face and analyses the images that indicate pain and records them. 

Next, the caregiver uses PainChek® to record their observations of other pain related behaviours that complete the assessment. 

Finally, PainChek® calculates an overall pain score and stores the result allowing the caregiver to monitor the effect of medication and treatment over time. 

PainChek® is being rolled out globally in two phases: first, PainChek® for adults who are unable to effectively verbalise their pain such as people with dementia, and second, PainChek® for Children who have not yet learnt to speak.
