About PainChek

PainChek® uses cameras in smartphones and tablets to capture a brief video of the person, which is analysed in real time using facial recognition software to detect the presence of facial micro-expressions that are indicative of the presence of pain.

This data is then combined with other indicators of pain, such as vocalisations, behaviours and movements captured to calculate a pain severity score. Due to its speed, ease of use and its reproducibility, PainChek® will be able to be used to detect and measure a person’s pain, and then further measurements can be used to monitor the effectiveness of pain management.

PainChek® is being rolled out globally in two phases: first, PainChek® which is designed for adults who are unable to effectively verbalise their pain such as people with dementia, and second, PainChek® for Children who have not yet learnt to speak.
