It is important for healthcare providers to recognize potential nondrug therapies for treating chronic pain. Scrambler Therapy may bring a new horizon for the treatment of chronic pain related to trauma, nerve injuries, stroke, etc. Recent significant findings relating to the failings, injuries and unfortunate deaths of Spinal Cord Stimulator devices plus the ongoing opioid "crisis", this noninvasive technique, could be a tremendous step forward in nondrug solutions for chronic/persistent pain.

On December 1st, 2016, The Purple Bucket Foundation Inc. received notification that their application to have the medical device Scrambler Therapy® Technology MC-5A, CE Certification 0476, had been approved for supply in Australia and registered with the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods. This paved the way for patients to be treated with Scrambler Therapy® Technology MC-5A throughout Australia. Also enabling practitioners /operator’s direct access to the standard official training course, which certifies the operator to the correct methodology and usage of Scrambler Therapy® Technology MC-5A and the dedicated software designed exclusively for Scrambler Therapy. 

Scrambler Therapy® Technology was originally developed in Italy for the treatment of chronic, neuropathic and oncologic pain resistant to opiates, anti-seizure medications, intravenous anaesthetics and other forms of treatment. Scrambler Therapy® is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical approach to pain therapy.
Only a pain specialist, other qualified pain physician or specialist nurses working under a pain specialist can be certified in Scrambler Therapy, as the correct identification of placement sites for the electrodes is crucial for treatment. The Scrambler device resembles an electrocardiogram medical device in appearance. It has five electrodes the physician places on the non-painful tissue near the site of pain but never on the site of pain.
It uses an electro cutaneous method (electrodes/leads on the skin) to comfortably stimulate (like a gentle vibration), surface receptors on normal tissue that correspond to a dermatome type. This signal from normal tissue communicates a “non-pain” signal to the brain via the central nervous system that is specific to each individual. This signal is a synthetic signal of “non-pain” that the brain now recognizes as “normal self” because it travels the same pathways on the central nervous system that previously carried the “pain” message. It is for this reason, the inventor Giuseppe Marineo Ph.D., D.Sc. from the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy thought the name “Scrambler Therapy” was the most appropriate one.
