PainChek® is transforming pain management to help give a voice to those who cannot verbalise their pain.

The world’s first pain assessment device that has regulatory clearance in Australia and Europe, PainChek uses facial recognition and artificial intelligence to detect pain—providing carers with three important benefits:

1. The ability to identify the presence of pain, when pain isn’t obvious

2. To quantify the severity of pain, and;

3. To monitor the effectiveness of pain treatment and make adjustments as required.

Pain often goes unrecognised in people with communication difficulties such as dementia and alzheimers. Although pain assessment tools exist, they are often subjective, paper-based and under-utilized.

Over 20 residential Aged Care clients across Australia use PainChek (as at October 2018), which represents more than 1,500 Australian Aged Care beds and more than 6,500 pain assessments completed under license.

PainChek uses facial recognition technology to detect micro­-expressions which are indicative of presence of pain. This data is then combined with non-facial pain cues (vocalisations, movements and behaviours) captured through the app to calculate a pain severity score.
