An Introduction to TENS

Pain Relief from TENS

What is TENS?

T.E.N.S. or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation is a small device that many people find effective in relieving pain. TENS has become a recognised and well-proven method of treating pain.

Research, technology and quality engineering have made TENS a safe and highly effective pain relief system, recommended by Pain Clinics, doctors, maternity and physiotherapy departments throughout the UK and nternationally.

How does TENS work?

TENS relieves pain in two ways. Electrical pulses pass from the machine through electrodes placed over the nerve centres.Benefit is felt firstly by blocking the pain signals normally sent to the brain through the nerve fibres; thereby interrupting the rain's awareness of pain.
Secondly, the body is stimulated to increase it's own production of natural painkillers known as endorphins and enkephalins.

What are the advantages of TENS?

TENS is an effective form of pain relief
TENS is safe
TENS is drug free
TENS is non- addictive
TENS is portable and ideal for home use

Is TENS safe?

TENS are non-invasive and safe to use. They should however not be used by patients
with heart pacemakers or serious heart rhythm problems. As with any product there
are a number of necessary precautions. These are listed under our terms and conditions section and should be thoroughly read before placing an order.

All our products carry CE marking. CE marking is a declaration by the manufacturer that the product meets all the appropriate provisions of the relevant legislation implementing certain European Directives.

Dual Channel Power Tens Machine 

IMPORTANT - This unit is a DUAL Channel TENS Machine, so it has 4 electrodes.

If you see machines advertised with only 2 electrodes - it means that is only a SINGLE Channel Machine.

The major difference is that a DUAL Channel machine enables you to cover a much wider area of where the pain is situated - and will provide much better pain relief than a SINGLE Channel Machine.

DUAL Channel Machines are recommended for Back, Shoulder, Neck, Leg and Arm pain.

Single Channel machines are recommended for isolated areas such as hands, wrist and foot.

This excellent digital TENS machines is very easy to operate, with a large LCD display screen.
