KT Tape, an American Fork company that manufactures drug-free pain relief products, has released a wearable electromagnetic product to treat musculoskeletal pain. The battery-powered KT Recovery+ Wave (KT Wave) has been clinically proven and has received FDA approval to deliver electromagnetic technology traditionally found only at a clinician’s office.
KT Tape said the new device brings relief to those who suffer from sports injuries, knee pain, arthritis, back pain, carpal tunnel, sprains and other afflictions of muscles and joints. It uses sensation-free electromagnetic pulses, known clinically as pulsed shortwave therapy (PSWT), to reduce nerve hypersensitivity and relieve pain. Utilizing technology 17 years in the making, KT Wave is a miniaturized, non-prescription product that makes PSWT portable and affordable, KT Tape said.
The device itself is a lightweight, discreet, flexible loop that uses adhesive tabs to attach it to the affected area. Its pulsing non-thermal, low-energy electromagnetic signals are sensation-free. KT Wave has a suggested retail price $34.99 and a guaranteed battery life of 250 hours.
“Reversal of nerve hypersensitivity requires a sustained stimulus over days or weeks and so an effective intervention must be convenient to use, low- cost and not interfere with activities of daily living,” said bioelectromagnetics researcher Dr. Ken McLeod. “KT Wave meets all of these requirements and so provides an optimal approach to chronic pain prevention.”
Lehi-based online genealogy service MyHeritage has released Deep Nostalgia, a new feature on its family history website that animates faces in still photos.

MyHeritage now offers a suite of features for colorizing, restoring, enhancing and animating historical photos. “You’ll have a ‘wow moment’ when you see a treasured family photo come to life with Deep Nostalgia,” said Gilad Japhet, founder and CEO of MyHeritage. “Seeing our beloved ancestors’ faces come to life in a video simulation lets us imagine how they might have been in reality and provides a profound new way of connecting to our family history.”
Provo-based Qualtrics, a provider of software for the way businesses deal with customers, employees, products and brands, has introduced Health Connect, an automated integration connecting electronic medical record (EMR) systems directly to the Qualtrics XM Platform.

The product gives healthcare providers an easy way to reach out to patients and deliver more personalized care at scale, Qualtrics said. “Greater interoperability between experience data and EMR operational data will empower clinicians to deliver personalized and compassionate care to every patient,” said Patty Riskind, Qualtrics’ head of global healthcare. “With Health Connect, healthcare providers can customize and personalize outreach to patients, gaining unique and relevant insights about individual care experiences.”
