a.Short Answer: The WilloMD is a digital smart medical device especially created for joint pain relief.
b.Extended Answer: The mini-computer is preloaded with Willo OS5 software and is designed to relieve joint pain, improve mobility, and speed return to performance. It is a fifth generation device, the result of years of research and development by The Physician’s Technology medical and engineering team. It includes our most recent and significant advancements for treating joint joint pain that limits performance and mobility.
2.How does it work?
a.Short Answer: Multiple energies, delivered by a complex mathematical formula to the skin surface, promote pain relief and healing.
b.Extended Answer:WilloMD technology employs dynamic photonic and thermal kinetic energies which are known to relieve pain and promote healing.A proprietary algorithm targets and treats by calculating and delivering a unique digital prescription of these energies. This can be likened to an electronic prescription that stimulates vascular, neurologic, and recuperative systems. Pain and swelling are reduced, toxin removal is accelerated and healing enhanced.
3.How does the WilloMD differ from other pain relief devices on the Market?
a.Short Answer: The WilloMD is a sophisticated mini-computer employing advanced hardware and software designed specifically to promote pain relief, healing, and enhanced performance.
b.Extended Answer: The patented physical design of the WilloMD is unique and material to its remarkable performance. The advanced hardware and software are more intricate, advanced and complex than any other pain and performance device on the market. Not only does the WilloMD relieve discomfort, but it also accelerates healing and because of its proprietary andpatented energy delivery system, it prevents tachyphylaxis (adaption).This is a phenomenon that refers to the body’s rapidly decreasing response to a pharmacologically or physiologically active substancefollowing its initial administration. In other words, things like drugs, medication and physical stimuli become less effective over time. The WilloMD offers the unique advantage that one can use the device as often and as frequently as desired while continuing to accrue benefits without developing tachyphylaxis.
4.Have there been any medical studies to support WilloMD technology?
a.Short Answer: Yes.
b.Extended Answer:The landmark medical study in May 2004, published in the Journal of Dialysis and Transplantation (2005) validated that our technology is effective. The 5th generation WilloMD is the most advanced technology offered by Physician’s Technology.It has produced thousands of positive patient outcomes over many years.Ongoing research will continue to confirm the importance and effectiveness of our technology.
5.Is WilloMD treatment safe?
a.Short Answer: Yes.
b.Extended Answer: There are many pharmaceuticals that offer pain relief. Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS) are one class of drugs that millions of people use throughout the world to relieve a variety of painful conditions. It has been known for years that this class of drugs carries significant risk.
For that reason, newer drugs in this class have been developed, referred to as COX-2 inhibitors. However,even with these newer generations of drugs developed to reduce previously known problems with the NSAIDS, serious and life threatening conditions can occur. In addition, analgesics (narcotics and synthetic pain medications) can have habituating, addictive, and bothersome side effects.
The WilloMD™ poses none of these risks. If used as directed, no adverse events or complications have developed in anyone. You can take comfort in knowing that your WilloMD™ is both effective and safe.

With additional treatments, many find the effects are cumulative, and enhance and maintain the favorable results.
As a rule of thumb, chronic conditions tend to require more prolonged therapy than acute conditions.As long as the safety recommendations are followed, the WilloMD may be used as frequently as the user wishes. Whether your condition is acute (hours to days) or chronic (weeks to years), the more frequently you use the WilloMD™ the more complete and sooner you can expect your condition to improve.

9.Can Cancer Patients Use The WilloMD™?
a.Short Answer: Yes.
b.Extended Answer: In a report in Photomed Laser Surg. 2004 Dec;22(6):523-6, Mognato M, Squizzato F, Facchin F, Zaghetto L, Corti L confirmedprevious observations carried out on human cells, where only the proliferation of slowly growing cell populations appeared to be stimulated by laser light.A number of studies have demonstrated that cancerous cells are not stimulated by using this technology. Therefore, it is felt that patients with cancer can safely use The WilloMD as long as the recommended guidelines are followed.
10.Does the WilloMD work over clothing?
a.Short Answer: No.
b.Extended Answer: It is very important to apply the WilloMD directly to the skin surface.

b.Extended Answer:Patients and clinicians have observed and reported pain relief, reduced swelling, improved mobility and performance with use of the WilloMD™ over 90% of the time. In a number of treatment groups, users and health professionals have observed and reported 80-100% pain reduction and 50-100% improved mobility.Relief may last from hours to weeks.
Whether your condition is acute (hours to days) or chronic (weeks to years), the more frequently you use The WilloMD™ the more complete and sooner you can expect your condition to improve.The Doctors recommend using The WilloMDat least twice daily until symptoms are controlled. More frequent use will likely yield additional benefits.
Should the condition not be healable (such as abnormal joint architecture), most individuals can expect The WilloMD™ to promote relief of the toxic, irritating, or noxious reaction of the tissues surrounding the problem. Although this will not cure the underlying problem, it can be expected to improve the secondary reaction and accompanying pain, as well as improve your performance and the quality of life. We always recommend dialogue and follow up with your professional health care provider.
