Hollywog Launches Neubac Wireless Remote Controlled Device For Back Pain

Friday, January 03, 2014

Hollywog, a worldwide provider to the medical device industry, announced the launch of its new Neubac wireless remote controlled device for back pain at International CES, the world’s largest consumer electronics show in the world.  The 2014 International CES will be held Jan. 7–10 in Las Vegas. Neubac is the first wireless remote controlled pain relief device for the consumer market incorporating TENS technology to specifically target back pain.

“The Neubac product line is the first fresh new design in an electrical stimulation device for back pain in decades,” said Chuck Thomas, president of Hollywog.  “Not only do today’s consumers demand high quality and innovation from the medical device industry, they desire alternatives that match their daily life activities, which include alternatives to pain medications and costly doctor visits.”

Neubac has the distinction of Silver Sponsor for the Digital Health Summit at CES presented by Living in Digital Times. The two-day Digital Health Summit explores how digital tools are reinventing and reshaping the health industry.  Mr. Thomas is a featured speaker for the “This is Spinal Tech” session during the Digital Health Summit, which includes such distinguished speakers as Sanjay Gupta.   

“The Digital Health Summit is not your typical, ho-hum healthcare conference,” said Jill Gilbert, producer of the Summit. “Because the Summit has the unique setting of CES as its backdrop, we can present some of the most creative and unique keynotes and sessions, respected experts and cutting-edge innovations in digital health that you won’t find anywhere else. It’s truly a cross-pollination of the best mix of medical, healthcare, and consumer brands all in one place.” 

Neubac can be experienced at LVCC South Hall 2, Booth 26332 at International CES in Las Vegas.
