ClearUP is a revolutionary healthcare innovation within the emerging category of bioelectronic medicine. It’s the only drug-free, non-invasive device on the market that uses low-level electrical stimulation, or microcurrent waveform, to treat adults 18+ with allergic rhinitis. ClearUP empowers the 50 million U.S. allergy sufferers with a quick and convenient over-the-counter solution to help manage and control allergy-related sinus pain anytime, anywhere at home, work or while travelling.
“We are honored to be selected as one of TIME’s 2019 Best Inventions in healthcare and be among such distinguished and accomplished innovators,” said Jennifer Ernst, CEO of Tivic Health. “The bioelectronics industry is generating new non-drug therapies and this new class of devices represents an emerging vertical in healthcare that is currently in its infancy but is showing promise in addressing serious conditions including depression, chronic pain, Parkinson’s, PTSD, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and others. There is a plethora of new products just now getting clearance from the FDA and an explosion in this new area of medicine is beginning to happen.”
ClearUP is a game-changer, disrupting how we treat sinus pain
It’s not another nasal spray, prescription pill or invasive nasal flush. ClearUP’s state of the art technology emits low-level electrical stimulation called microcurrent to underlying sinus nerve fibers. Sinus sufferers and clinicians like ClearUP because it is 100% drug-free and has no chemical side effects. Just slowly glide ClearUP around your outer cheek, nose and brow bone for a quick five-minute treatment. Studies show that 74% experienced relief after one treatment that lasts up to six hours.

We are always looking forward to the holidays. One of the reasons, I know, is to receive so many gifts. A lot of times, we get so many gifts never can be used, because we don’t really need some of them. I think it is very important to gift something people really need, especially for their health. Last year, I gave my husband a blood-pressure monitor machine, which he loves very much. I know he needs it and he knows I care about him. This year, we want to introduce youva Allergy-Related Sinus Pain Relief device, it is Clearup.
Congestion, pain, and pressure are common symptoms of rhinitis and rhinosinusitis. These symptoms are caused by mucosal inflammation, venous engorgement, increased nasal secretions, edema, and hypersensitivity of sensory perception. Inflammatory and neurogenic mediators are key drivers of vasodilation leading to edema and swelling of the nasal mucosa and subsequent reduction in nasal airflow and increases in pain and pressure. Tivic Health’s ClearUP™ Sinus Pain Relief (ClearUP™) device delivers a pulsed electrical current to the skin near the nose and paranasal sinuses. When a decrease in impedance is detected by the device, a vibration prompts the user to hold the device in place for treatment.
Allergy relief can be found at home with Tivic Health’s game-changing ClearUP Sinus Pain Relief device. The state-of-the-art, handheld tool is available without a prescription and is FDA-cleared to treat sinus pain due to allergic rhinitis. With a one-control button, allergy sufferers can relieve sinus pain in one five-minute treatment. ClearUP is available online at BestBuy.com now and will be shortly at CVS.com and Walgreens.com.
The multi-billion-dollar US sinus care category is filled with over-the-counter drugs, RX pills and nose sprays. ClearUP is poised to disrupt the treatment of sinus pain due to allergies, a symptom for which there are no good solutions on the market. It is the only solution that uses gentle microcurrent waveforms to reduce allergy-related sinus pain for the 40-60 million Americans suffering from allergic rhinitis. ClearUP is an example of bioelectronic medicine, an emerging form of drug free, non-invasive medicine that uses low-level electrical stimulation, or neuromodulation, to treat chronic conditions. Available now over-the-counter and without a prescription, ClearUP is simple to use at home or on the go.
To use simply glide ClearUP along the cheek, side of the nose and under the brow bone. During a treatment, the device guides the user to the optimal treatment points with a light and vibration system and delivers a proprietary microcurrent waveform that stimulates sinus nerve fibers under the skin. A single treatment takes five minutes and the relief lasts up to six hours. Low-level electrical stimulation of the sinus nerve fibers has been shown to alleviate pain and pressure sensations and result in smaller blood vessel diameter and reduced edema (swelling).
ClearUP is clinically proven and FDA cleared, so it’s safe and effective. A double-blind, randomized, sham-controlled study showed 74 percent of users experienced sinus pain relief after one five-minute treatment and four out of five preferred it to their current treatment.
