Allegheny General Hospital (AGH) has entered into a strategic partnership with Pneumex, Inc. and its subsidiary, Revita Consumer Products, LLC, to investigate non-surgical treatment options for spinal pain associated with nerve compression.

“Lower back pain is a common problem with limited treatment choices — often pain medication or conventional back surgery,” said Boyle Cheng, PhD, Director of the Neurosurgery, Spine, and Biomechanics Laboratory at AGH. “It affects a huge population and this is one area where we could do a lot better.”

The initial clinical trial of this research collaborative will measure the effectiveness of a consumer device Revita Consumer Products, LLC created to relieve spinal pressure while patients are seated. AGH’s Department of Neurosurgery, Neuroscience Research Institute and the Allegheny Singer Research Institute are testing Revita Consumer Product’s RevitaBack™ system -- a non-invasive belt that fits like an abdominal binder and a harness that fits any chair or seat. The belt connects with the harness when the wearer sits to help reduce pressure on the spine.

“Sitting for long periods of time creates pressure on the back that frequently causes poor postural positioning and chronic low back pain”, said Donald Whiting, MD, Vice Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at AGH and Surgical Director of its Center for Spasticity and Movement Disorders.

Investigators believe the study will reveal how differences in spinal orientation may facilitate diagnostic and clinical treatments for mechanical lower back pain.

“We have some first-hand accounts that demonstrate RevitaBack™’s potential and indicate that this may be a sustainable, conservative therapy that reduces pain and increases mobilization,” Dr. Whiting said.

Pneumex, Inc. is a leading therapeutic development firm delivering non-surgical medical treatment equipment for lower back pain associated with radiculitis and radiculopathy, herniated disks, sciatica, and other conditions.

“It is both an honor and a privilege to be working with one of the leading neurosurgical departments and neurosciences hospitals in the country”, said John Kupice, CEO, Pneumex, Inc. and Revita Consumer Products, LLC. “We are excited to be working with several of the nation’s leading experts in neurosurgical spine care and look forward to this collaboration with Allegheny General Hospital.”

AGH is a nationally recognized academic medical center that is designated as both a Neurosciences Center of Excellence and a Spine Center of Excellence, based on recent independent studies of neurosurgical capabilities and quality patient care outcomes at medical centers around the country. The Hospital is home to one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive neurosurgical programs and has a longstanding history of pioneering research in the neurosciences field.
