Among the five senses that people have, only pain cannot be seen.
We can help you,

You, who suffer from extreme pain, yet cannot be understood by others;
You, who endure the pain which needs to be treated;

if only pain is visible.

We, at PaMeLa Inc., are conducting research using EEG and artificial intelligence to “visualize” body pain all the time.

Up to now, pain has been judged by how a person feels and
what a person says, "It hurts a lot!" Or "I can bear it ...".
When we want to reach out and help someone in pain, or to provide medical care,
words have been the only thing we could rely on.

So, when someone swallows his/her words, or when someone cannot speak up, we cannot help,
nor deliver necessary care.
How we wish there were a method to objectively judge the existence of pain and measure the size of pain.

We are developing our product to make that "what if" into a reality.
We want to reach out and help you who is in pain, in a way that suits you,
and help each person who experience pain, in a way that suits him/her the best.

Even if the cause of pain is hidden somewhere, the pain itself is certainly in you.

We want to identify the pain in you.
We want to understand the pain in you.

This feeling drives us.

Understanding body pain leads to understanding of pain in heart.
The world in which we can understand pain should look different than it is now.

We will strive hard with our initiative,
so that people in the world can understand each other's pain,
believing that we will eventually become a society with strong empathy,
and that the whole world can finally put a smile on its face.
