The largest independent randomized controlled trial (RCT) of its type has shown the Kaia Health app-based therapy for patients with low back pain to outperform standard-of-care treatment across all medical outcomes, including reduced pain levels, anxiety, depression, stress – and improved wellbeing and body functionality.
In the largest independent randomized controlled trial of its type, Kaia, an app-based therapy for patients with low back pain, has outperformed standard-of-care treatment across all medical outcomes.
Results of the study, published in the Journal of Pain Research, show that patients using Kaia, developed by digital therapeutics company Kaia Health, reduced pain levels, anxiety, depression, stress, and improved wellbeing and body functionality significantly more compared to standard-of-care treatments.
“COVID is changing the way that health care is delivered and driving a meaningful increase in demand for multimodal virtual therapy solutions,“ says Kaia Founder and President, Konstantin Mehl.
Kaia was born when founders, Konstantin Mehl and Manuel Thurner, came together on their mission to find a more effective way to manage chronic back pain. After years of personal suffering from this issue, the founder duo discovered the solution: multimodal therapy, otherwise known as the gold standard for pain management. The challenge was that the cost – both time and money – made this therapy virtually inaccessible to just about everyone.
And so enter Kaia: a digital version of this clinically validated mind-body therapy. One that can be accessed by anyone, anytime, anywhere.
