MIND MATTERS Women, Technology & Pain

Imagine that you were in intense pain and you were unable to ask for help or that no one believed you when you did.

Almost 1 in 5 Canadian sufferers from chronic pain and associated issues – the majority of these, are women. Yet, studies suggest time and time again that women’s pain is consistently both under recognized and undertreated by medical professionals. Hear from researchers developing technology to help identify when someone is in pain.
