Healthcare Practitioner Testimonials

“A key step in multidisciplinary care is patient involvement. This excellent resource, empowers patients to take control of their pain journey.”

(AUST) Dr Nick Christelis MBBCH, FRCA, FFPMRCA, FANZCA, FFPMANZCA – Director, Pain Specialists Australia
“PainTrain allows patients to have all their information on hand, including the details they feel are most important in understanding their pain and what concerns or matters most to them and enables a more supportive appointment and treatment approach.”

“From the practitioner point of view, PainTrain enhances the ability for us to grasp a detailed understanding of the patient’s experience and know what the patient expects from the appointment by viewing their personal notes.”

“Founder Soula Mantalvanos developed PainTrain to address a large area of unmet need; communication between those Australians who are affected by pain, and their health practitioners.”

“Pain Train was easy to grasp a detailed understanding of the patient’s experience and know what the patient was expecting from the appointment by viewing their personal notes. It facilitated the understanding of the patient narrative by doctors who have undertaken educational in pain management.”

“PainTrain is a revolutionary communication tool designed to empower patients, allowing them to tell their story the way they want it to be heard. The daily mood logging and customisable questionnaires make this a very unique experience for the patient.

I love PainTrain because my patients can share their story with just about anyone they want. All their paperwork is under one roof, you can even upload medical scans. It’s an efficient way to stay connected with my patient’s wellness team.

My patients can see exactly when I checked their profile which makes them feel cared for and supported along their journey. PainTrain a unique product that fits the paradigm shift from patriarchal traditional medicine to patient-centeric collaboration allowing patients to take ownership of their health and ultimately their life’s journey.”

I’m happy to be offering PainTrain to all of my patients. Kudos on a job well done!

“A wonderful platform for patients to document their pain history allowing the layout to be in a very easy to read format for the practitioner to get a “snap shot” of the patient in just a few moments. I think it will be a great asset to our initial “interview” with our patients that highlights many talking points to help even better tailor our program for everyone.”

(US) Karen Liberi MS, MPT, WCS Director, Rehab at NWO Center for Pelvic Rehab and Wellness

“Fabulous! What an empowering tool for patients to organise and track their symptoms so they can easily share with their providers. Well done!”

(US) Dustienne Miller CYT, PT, MS, WCS, Your Pace Yoga

“PainTrain is a terrific innovation that puts the consumer in a position to shape their treatment and recovery. The idea of not having to repeat your story over and over again and exercising control over the information health professional get is terrific. Consumers know best what they need and what works. PainTrain provides a vehicle to regain control in an environment when control is often lost.”

(AUST) Arthur Papakotsias, (prior) Chief Executive Officer, Neami National

“I hope many people with pain will use PainTrain to make their medical appointments smoother….and that others will be inspired by your example to innovate new solutions in response to personal challenges. Your message to health care providers is so important: “how are you going to understand and help your patient if you don’t get their perspective, culture, upbringing, daily experience, relationship with their spouse…everyone’s journey is unique”

“What I like about this concept is that, as a provider, it saves me time. I can read everything the patient has sent prior to the appointment, I can highlight the information that is most pertinent to me and whatever else I need to know I can ask in the appointment. This creates efficient use of time.”

PainTrain is a very useful resources for both the person living with persistent pain and the healthcare professional who are supporting them.

It allows the person to track their progress and report back to their healthcare professional, who can help them over any, what I call pain speed bumps to self-manage their pain.

“I do like your idea of easing the burden upon the person in pain who invariably has to relate their history to each and every health professional they encounter. It allows more time for both parties to enter and utilise the “third space,” where meaning is negotiated and healing can take place.”
