Research and Published Literature
All of Pyng Medical’s established and many new products have been documented and reviewed in third-party publications, journals and research studies, as well as clinical data trials. On this page, you will find a comprehensive (though not complete) list of these articles, studies and trials:
*Note: Much of this literature refers to Pyng’s T-POD product, which is no longer marketed. Because both T-PODResponder & T-PODCombat are based on the original T-POD design, this literature is still relevant to the new products.
