My name is Mikaella, and I'm the CEO of HPF
Our team is innovating in the field of pain management and personalized treatment by introducing the Reliefant, an app beyond pain, and developing a device,the opio-pop, that will detect opiorphin (pain biomarker) levels in the patients’ saliva.
We aim to improve the daily lives of cancer patients and support the effort for personalized medical care through telemedicine.
PAIN IS EXPERIENCED BY
objective perspective of pain
The subjective pain scales that doctors are using so far can be replaced with Opiopop - measuring the levels of opiorphin in patients’ saliva which corresponds to the objective pain a patient feels.
The use of Opiopop can help the palliative-care doctor to adjust the doses of the analgesic treatment according to the patient’s objective level of pain.
The patient can directly communicate with the doctor from home every time they experience pain, with just the tap of a button in our app, Reliefant.
Measuring tha objective pain, the patient can see the actual level of pain and realise the need of using opioids, overcoming any fear of opioid use which is usual among cancer patients.
