This site was created by me — Samuel Pinches. I was concerned that the average person on the street did not have the ability to evaluate the scientific claims made about the products in this category of pain relief products.

Initially these posts were hosted on my personal blog, but I felt the topic material was far different to my regular content, that I felt they deserved a dedicated home.

Who am I? I am a materials scientist (PhD from UoM!), who has a fascination with the stuff that our world is made of, from the atom, and up.

If you would like to support my work, to help fund future patch purchases, or simply say thanks, you’re welcome to buy me a chai latte.

I am looking for others in related fields to pain relief patches (e.g. bioengineers, doctors, pain scientists.) to contribute their expertise to this site. If you’re interested — please get in touch.
