Continuing our Christmas countdown of this year’s best care home products & services, the world’s first artificial intelligence (AI)-powered pain assessment tool PainChek® explains how it provides a voice to people who are living with dementia and unable to verbalise their pain.

PainChek® is a secure medical device for use on mobile phones and tablets and smart automation designed to detect and score pain in real time.

Never before in the UK have care home operators been able to use such a digital medical device that shows a colour-coded pain chart for each resident.

It is a daily challenge for carers to assess pain in people living with dementia or other cognitive impairments.

With PainChek®  carers can identify the root causes of potential complications from the outset, reducing unnecessary prescribing, and minimising the risk of further complications..

The PainChek® App also helps overcome the gap in pain documentation, and therefore equips care providers with the means to better plan and treat pain according to evidence-based pain management practices.
