    I wear the Kaino and it is NOT placebo effect, it works. I have chronic back pain and kidney disease from taking too many ibuprofen for years for my back pain. This does help with the pain and helps me keep moving and active.

      Dear Connie,
      Please don’t take this personally – but I do not think you understand the meaning of the word “placebo”. Just because it gives you pain relief does not mean that it is not a placebo. The placebo effect is very powerful. Regardless, I’m glad you’ve found something that gives you relief, that is great news for you.
      Best,
      Sam

    Hello Sam,

    I have found your information very informative. Actually, I referred a family member to Kailo as I have received relief from using it on my knees.

    Several years ago, I have knee problems because of an accident and had relied on medication which I so very much hate. This is not an endorsement that Kailo does magic, it sure makes the tingling pain lesser so that I can go to bed.

    I am no tech expert but my cousin called me to say she googled Kailo and thinks otherwise after reading what is on your site. Nevertheless, I would say that it does something for me and I stand by it.

    The reason why I am writing this is there are heaps of others who may have found a little comfort from pain, it is probably something you would not understand if you are not in this position. I have not found total relief from it but at least it brings it down a notch.

    That is just my two cents worth and I hope people in pain like myself can at least have an option.

    BR,
    Tony

      G’day Tony!
      Thank you for your comment. There are two issues at stake here:

      First issue is the effectiveness of Kailo – does it work? As there have been some people like yourself that did find some relief, it might seem cruel of me to so strongly caution against it. However, I believe that the effect that you have experienced could be due to the placebo effect. The burden of proof is on Kailo – it is their responsibility. They have not performed a double blind clinical trial, which is the minimum required to confirm that something is not a placebo. Pain relief is big bucks – if the product really worked, they would have investors crawling all over them to get a clinical trial going ASAP. As you’re probably aware, they have already raised $2M+ on their own… The difficulty for me here is that I don’t have access to the real customer satisfaction numbers, so I cannot critique the product from this aspect unless they share their (real) data.

      The second issue is the mechanism of action. If Kailo did actually work, then it is the job of scientists to then try to work out how that could be possible. I cannot see a way that Kailo can actually work that does not break the laws of thermodynamics – the product simply cannot operate as claimed without a source of power. On this basis alone, I call it a scam. This company (nCap, the technology “provider” and patent owner) failed to commercialise their antenna technology, and to me this looks like a desperate money grab.

      Honestly, I wish you the best, and I am glad for you that Kailo provides some relief. I just wish you would come to me next time, as I could make a bunch of “Kailo” for about $1 each. Recipe is about 5 cents of PVC sheet, and 50 cents of copper powder, and dab of PVA glue … and a dash of hyperbolic emotional “its so weird” slick marketing, and we’re in business.

      Kind regards,
      Sam

        There is another pain patch its triangular and I think called rapid relief same type of a pain nanotherapy just wondering if that one may work I too take too many pain meds looking for something like others to just take the pain down a notch

          Homedics were selling a product called “Rapid Relief” which was just a TENS unit, but they have cancelled it since.

          Do you mean “Signal Relief”? I posted about it here — it is also by nCAP, same “technology”, just a different name – I think it is a scam too.

    I just got mine, I have scholiosis, hypertonia, neurological domage, hip instability, collapsed arches…..aka mucho chronic pain. Have taken and voluntarly quit some of the best opiate painchillers big pharma has to offer, and let s just say, somehow lesser painkillers did not enjoy the presence of any placebo effect, and that was precisely why I had in the past fought so hard to obtain real morphine and such, so I do not beleive in placebo effect when it comes to pain. The closest to ” placebo ” would be hypnosis under a master hypnotist which are far and apart and cannot be shipped to your door for dayly re-use…… so is it placebo ? I personally do not think so, pain signals are electric signals, why should not the narrative behind this tech make sense ? it makes sense to me and it works as good as claimed, I am not saying it is perrrrfect, I mean a tatoo with it would be nicer, did you ever try it before calling it snake oil ?

    Hey Sam,

    First time reader but endorse your skepticism. Was backer of kailo. Among first to receive jail patches last year. Never used them. However My lady has back pain this week so we used a patch for the first time. Within a few seconds pain subsidedsignificantly.

    Like a number of health aids I think the patches may work for some folks some of the time.

    What I do know is less pain is better than no relief at all. Yes she has had acupuncture in the past and that has worked in some cases. So IF Kaili works at all it is faster relief than say acupuncture, safer than drugs and easy to use.

    Just our experience. “Your results may vary”. Hmmm where have I heard that before.

    Regards

    I loved your review and your comments. Had me in stitches – primarily for its honesty. I do understand the placebo effect and if it works for some, then it is terrific. I shall add you to my favorites as I really do appreciate an honest and more scientific approach to reviews. I especially like finding a review that is not associated with the darn company that makes the product!
