I learned through the Chronic Illness Bloggers Network that a company was looking for bloggers to try out their new pain relief product. I read about the device and decided I wanted to do a test trial. Lucky for me, Saringer Life Science Techologies chose me to review their new contrast therapy device called Benepod.
I received the device, free of charge in exchange for an honest review. I was so excited about this product that I felt the need to videotape my review. Check it out!
In summary, I feel that Benepod is a great tool to use when you don’t want to use more pain relieving medication. It is very calming to your pain receptors and thus, masks the feeling of pain. The pain relief lasts long enough for me to complete other tasks and to fall asleep.
- small and lightweight
- easy to use, requires no extras to use (no lotion, tape, etc),
- safe to touch (but do not leave it plugged in)
- does what it says and relieves pain/takes the edge off of pain,
- can be used with provided charger or a portable charging device
- automatic shut off after 20 minutes
- cost is $49.00 on Amazon.
- Requires electricity to work which can make it inconvenient in some places
- shape (it doesn’t contour to certain places like elbows, so it can be awkward)
- you must hold it on your body (it does not attach and you have to move it around)
- it does make a noise, so it can be heard by others if you are using it in public.
Benepod is not a cure or a treatment, rather, it is a tool that you can use to help provide some temporary pain relief. I recently had minor surgery that required stitches. When the numbing wore off, I had a horrific burning sensation that caused a big fibromyalgia flare. I was in sad shape but could not take more pain medication. I didn’t dare put the device near the stitches, but I used it up and down my arms to help with the fibromyalgia pain. After 20 minutes, it took the edge off the pain. It was the only thing that helped me fall asleep that night.
Thank you to Benepod for giving me this device to trial. I am a fan.

In closing, please know that I was not paid for my review. I did however, receive the Benepod device for free. I would not recommend it if I didn’t find it helpful in my fight with chronic pain. I consider it a good tool for temporary pain relief.
