In 1974, occupational therapist Cynthia Garris was forced to take a new look at splint therapy – in that year, she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. While plastic splints were adequate for treating short-term trauma, they were not an ideal solution for lifetime wear. In 1985, she set out to design and manufacture a new series of splints that were both more effective and more attractive than the splints then in use. In the process, she revolutionized splint therapy.
Wearing SilverRing™ Splints removes the stigma of splinting and increases patient compliance. Patients experience positive reactions from others which improves their perspective on treatment.
Whether they need finger stability for hand-intensive work or for everyday tasks like cooking and holding a pencil, thousands of people have made SilverRing™ Splints a valued part of their everyday lives. SilverRing™ Splints encourage complete patient well-being, medically effective hand therapy and a positive self-image.
BEST technology, developed by Avazzia’s CEO Tim Smith, produces microcurrent electrical impulses, which are transmitted by electrodes in the device through the skin to communicate with the body’s nervous system. BEST products are controlled by a high-performance microcomputer chip, which uses Avazzia proprietary software
These hand-held devices are FDA-cleared for the symptomatic relief and management of chronic, intractable pain and adjunctive treatment in the management of post-surgical and post-traumatic pain (available by prescription only). These noninvasive neuro-stimulation devices allow patients to take control of their pain management.
Avazzia BEST (Bio-Electric Stimulation Technology) products feature a tissue reaction response indication, making them superior to traditional TENS units. BEST products work on different neural paths than a traditional TENS.
Healthcare providers – including physicians, dentists, chiropractors, physical therapists and athletic trainers – use these devices for their own pain management and with their patients.
Patients use Avazzia BEST technology to manage pain connected with chronic and acute pain; dental patients use Avazzia products to manage pain after tooth extractions; athletes – including college and professional athletes – use Avazzia BEST products to reduce pain associated with rehab and after injuries.
Avazzia has strategic alliances with research foundations and medical schools in the United States, India, Malaysia, Romania, and Taiwan and to perform clinical studies with BEST products. Avazzia has relationships with domestic and international distributors, clinics and professionals to market its products.
Avazzia was founded in January 2004 and incorporated in Texas in May 2004. All Avazzia BEST products are manufactured and serviced at Avazzia corporate headquarters in Texas.
