TENS - Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulations
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulations (TENS) are safe non-invasive,
drug-free methods of pain management. TENS is currently one of the most
commonly used forms of electro- analgesia. The TENS device relieves pain
by sending small electrical impulses through electrodes placed on the skin to
underlying nerve fibers. TENS works by two different mechanisms.
First, electrical stimulation of the nerve fibers can block a pain signal from
being carried to the brain. If the signal is blocked, pain is not perceived.
Secondly, the body has its own mechanism for suppressing pain. It does
this by releasing natural compounds called endorphins which act as

By effectively managing pain without drugs. TENS allows many people
with chronic pain conditions to resume daily activity. TENS has proven to be
beneficial in the treatment of acute and chronic pain caused by pain related
medical conditions. When TENS is used as an analgesic, patients are
instructed to try different frequencies and intensities to find those that provide
them with the best pain control. Optimal settings of stimulus parameters are
subjective and are determined by trial and error. Electrode positioning is
quite important. Usually the electrodes are initially placed on the skin over
the painful area, but other locations may give comparable or even better pain
relief such as:
Over cutaneous nerves

Powered Muscle Stimulator (PMS) is intended to stimulate healthy
muscles in order to improve or facilitate muscle performance.
1. Relaxation of muscle spasms
2. Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy
3. Increasing local blood circulation
4. Muscle conditioning
5. Immediate post-surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent
venous thrombosis
6. Maintaining or increasing range of motion

The long-term effects of chronic electrical stimulation are unknown.
Stimulation should not be applied over the carotid sinus nerve, particularly
in patients with a known sensitivity to the carotid sinus reflex.
Stimulation should not be applied over the neck or mouth. Severe spasm
of the laryngeal and pharyngeal muscles may occur and the contractions
may be strong enough to close the airway or cause difficulty in breathing.
Stimulation should not be applied trans-thoracic ally in that the introduction
of electrical current into the heart may cause cardiac arrhythmias.
Stimulation should not be applied trans-cerebrally.
Stimulation should not be applied over swollen, infected, or inflamed areas
or skin eruptions, e.g., phlebitis, thrombophlebitis, varicose veins, etc.
Stimulation should not be applied over, or in proximity to, cancerous
Safety of this device for use during pregnancy has not been established.
Caution should be used for patients with suspected or diagnosed heart
Caution should be used for patients with suspected or diagnosed epilepsy.
Caution should be used in the presence of the following:
a. When there is a tendency to hemorrhage following acute trauma or
b. Following recent surgical procedures when muscle contraction may
disrupt the healing process;
c. Over the menstruating or pregnant uterus;
d. Over areas of the skin which lack normal sensation.
Some patients may experience skin irritation or hypersensitivity due to the
electrical stimulation or electrical conductive medium. The irritation can
usually be reduced by using an alternate conductive medium, or alternate
electrode placement.
Electrode placement and stimulation settings should be based on the
guidance of the prescribing practitioner.
The device should be kept out of the reach of children.
The device should be used only with the leads and electrodes
recommended for use by the manufacturer.
This device should not be used while driving, operating machinery, or
during any activity in which involuntary muscle contractions may put the
user at undue risk of injury.
Adverse Reactions May Include:
Skin irritation and burns beneath the stimulation electrodes applied to
your skin
Headache and other painful sensations during or following the
application of electrical stimulation near your eyes, to your head and face
You should stop using the device and consult with your physician if you
experience any adverse reactions from the device.
Manufacturer’s Warranty
Simulating kneading penetrates into the muscles to help
reduce tension,stress,& fatigue.
Simulating acupuncture provides the same sensation
without needles,by utilizing electronic pulses to achieve
the sensation of differing needle depths. The general
theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there
are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are
essential for health.Disruptions of this flow are believed to
be responsible for disease.Acupuncture may correct
imbalances of flow at identifiable points close to the skin.
It ha been known to help treat addiction,stroke
