Nu-V3 FAQs

Is Nu-V3 safe?


Because Nu-V3 delivers the science of neuromodulation non-invasiveley, non-pharmaceutically and with such a tiny micro-signal, it is considered very safe. There are no known negative side effects from Nu-V3 or the Nu-V3 Treatment Program. Nu-V3 has also been designated as 'non significant risk' (NSR) by the insitutional review board (IRB) responsible for approving our clinical programs.




Who is Nu-V3 for and how can I get it?


Anyone suffering severely from the symptoms of pain, anxiety, depression and or sleeplessness. Our initial patient populations include those suffering from neuropathy, back and joint pain, PTSD, arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. However, literally anyone suffering from these symptoms may find Nu-V3 is a real answer for them. NOTE: Nu-Life anticipates the availability of Nu-V3 to the general population in early 2021. At this time, we have launched The H.O.P.E. Initiative, a clinical program to benefit healthcare workers, first responders and veterans, utilizing Nu-V3 and the Nu-V3 Remote Treatment Program. See The H.O.P.E. Initiative FAQs below for more information.




What is Nu-V3 used for?


Nu-V3 has been developed to manage and mitigate the symptoms of pain, anxiety, depression and sleeplessness. Other benefits of Nu-V3 are an increase in activity, lesser dependence on as-needed pain, anxiety and depression medications and an overall increase in quality of life.




How is Nu-V3 used?


Nu-V3 is worn comfortably behind the ear and allows the patient to sleep, shower and perform almost any everyday activity while wearing Nu-V3. Nu-V3 may even be worn during sports such as golf or tennis. Nu-V3 is replaced once per month and the tiny gel-pads once per week.




How does Nu-V3 work?


Nu-V3 works by sending a tiny micro-signal through the auricular (ear) area, to the cranial nerves, more specifically the vagus, facial, trigeminal and glossopharyngeal nerves, helping to stimulate enkephalins (a strong endorphin) and over a period of weeks, re-establish balance of the autonomic nervous system. Vagal nerve stimulation, vasodilation (increased blood flow) and vital enkephalin production are the three main elements of the non-invasive neuromodulation Nu-V3 delivers.




What is the science behind Nu-V3?


Nu-V3 utilizes the well established science of Neuromodulation. While Nu-Life did not invent or discover the science of neuromodulation, we developed a minaturized, non-invasive, easy to use technology that delivers this science 24/7 in a way that no one else does.




What is the difference between Nu-V3 and other neuromodulation technologies?


While there are a number of forms of neuromodulation, what sets Nu-V3 apart is the ability to deliver the stimulation non-invasively, non-pharmaceutically. Nu-V3 is also comfortable to wear on the ear and simple to use, significantly increasing patient compliance. Because Nu-V3 is miniaturized and lightweight it enables the patient to perform almost any everyday activity. The most important distinction is the long term benefit Nu-V3 offers and the opportunity to discontinue treatment once the patient's ANS has become functional once again.




What is Nu-V3?


Nu-V3 is a patented, miniaturized, wearable, non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical medical device.




Is the Nu-V3 Program covered by insurance?


We do anticipate the cost of the Nu-V3 program to be covered in a number of ways, from self-insured corporations for their employees to major healthcare providers and agencies. In today's ever-changing environment of insurance coverage for healthcare, the significantly lower cost of treatment, ease of use and low risk (no negative side effetcs) allows Nu-V3 to be considered as standard of care as we acquire regulatory clearances. Even private pay becomes an advantage over the cost of the patient's existing out-of-pocket cost of care.





 
 

The H.O.P.E. Initiative FAQs

Is the H.O.P.E. Initiative limited to healthcare workers, first responders and veterans?


Yes, while this initiative is focused on those protectors who are most in need at this time, Nu-V3 will become available to anyone who suffers from pain, anxiety, depression and sleeplessness as we enter the market officially in early 2021.




How can I be assured my donation is going to directly benefit these protectors?


Nu-Life is dedicated to making sure 100% of your donated funds go toward The H.O.P.E. Initiative. Expenses related to H.O.P.E. are evaluated, validated and audited by committee through the Executive Team at Nu-Life USA, authorized and paid on a monthly basis separately from all other business expenses.




How long will you continue The H.O.P.E. Initiative?


Although our goal is $1,200,000.00 to treat more than 1,000 patients, we will continue to treat people under The H.O.P.E. Initiative as long and the campaign remains viable, cost effective and supported through GoFundMe!




What happens if you do not reach your goal?


While our goal of $1,200,000.00 allows us to treat more than 1,000 patients, any significant amount of funding through this campaign will serve the community well by treating as many people as possible with the funding that is received. Please see the Nu-V3 Path to H.O.P.E. page to see how Nu-Life will begin to serve our protectors immediately, beginning with the Nu-V3 Life-line!




Is there a minimum amount I can donate?


There is no minimum donation. Any amount is appreciated.




May I donate more than once?


Yes, you may donate as often as you like. As we reach certain milestones you may wish to increase your support!




Can someone donate for me?


Yes, as long as the donation comes from an approved GoFundMe country. See the GoFundMe site for more information on approved countries.




Is my donation tax deductible?


While 100% of the funds raised go to the campaign and no patient will pay for treatment, donations are not tax deductible at this time. Nu-Life provides all Nu-V3 devices and services at cost, which allows donations to go much, much further.




Is there a way I can contribute if I do not have funds to donate?


Absolutely! There are several ways to support the H.O.P.E. initiative: 1) SPREAD the word and share the H.O.P.E. initiative with your network via email and social media platforms like LinkedIn and Facebook. 2) Like, share and follow us on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. 3) Follow us by clicking our hashtag, #nuv3 on social media!




How do I participate or get someone I know to participate in The H.O.P.E. Initiative program?


This question is our most asked, and an indication of just how many people are in need of Nu-V3. Also our most difficult question to answer, until recently. We no longer have to say "no" or "not yet" to those who qualify for The H.O.P.E. Initiative program. Of course, we can't treat everyone, all at once, hence The H.O.P.E. Initiative, which is limited at least for now, to approximately 1,000 people. H.O.P.E. is a way to begin treating those in need, in large numbers, so they may then lead the way to a significant increase in availability of Nu-V3 across the United States, then globally. Our initial goal is to treat more than 1,000 healthcare workers, first responders and veterans. We understand that the need is much, much greater and that many thousands of people suffering from these debilitating symptoms need our help. This is actually the ultimate objective of The H.O.P.E. Initiative. A successful campaign will not only allow us to increase the number of people we may treat, but will help us enter the market in early 2021, empowering Nu-Life to treat anyone who needs us, anywhere and anytime. Supporting and donating to The H.O.P.E. Initiative makes it possible to provide Nu-V3 to those in need, sooner! Please feel free to subscribe to The H.O.P.E. Initiative (form below) and we will be sure to update you when we are able to expand The H.O.P.E. Initiative!
