The general functioning of an TENS machine - simply explained
In stimulation current therapy, electrical impulses are transmitted to the skin with the help of the TENS device via electrode pads. Because of its simple application, TENS electrotherapy is easy to use at home or in the office. Our devices have a lot of different programs, which you can choose individually. The program selection includes for example the treatment of sensitive body parts, rheumatic, acute or chronic pain or stiff joints. The pulse strength, pulse duration and frequency are automatically stored for each program. All TENS devices are medically certified, are regularly checked and guarantee the highest level of safety. In combination with the electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) you can relieve pain in the long term and also prevent it. Frequently, after application of the TENS stimulation current therapy, muscle building is recommended to prevent pain. Use the TENS/EMS combo device STIM PRO X9 and place up to 8 skin electrodes simultaneously through the unique 4 channels. For optimal treatment, in addition to the appropriate TENS or stimulation current device, the right electrode pads are necessary.
Which benefits give you a TENS machine?
✓ Use TENS machines. Anytime and Everywhere
Because of the small packaging, the application with our TENS machine is so easy and flexible, that you can use it everywhere you want. For example you can use it at home or at work. The application of TENS therapy is painless. Convince yourself of the convenient handling with an axion TENS machine! If you have additional questions, our customer service will be delighted to advise you.
✓ Painless Therapy for all types of pain
You can use a tens machine as an alternative of taking medication. With our stimulation current device you can alleviate all types of pain, whether they are chronic or acute.
✓ You save money: cost advantage
Your doctor can prescripe a physiotherapy treatment to you for curing several health issues. The costs of the treatment can be more expensive than you think and are often only partially covered by your health insurance. By using your own stimulation current device, you can reduce the frequency of physiotherapist visits and also the costs. Likewise the usage of a TENS EMS machine can be a cheap alternative to a treatment with medication.
✓ One TENS machine for many uses
You can cure many types of pain with an stimulation current device. You will benefit also from a wide assortment of different electrode pads. You can use our tens machines for any part of your body because of the different shapes of the electrode pads. You can stick the pads on parts of your body, which are hard to reach, because of the strong adhesive power. Our TENS EMS combo machine STIM-PRO X9 comes with 5x5cm und 10x5cm electrode pads. These pads are universally applicable and because of that, they can help you to alleviate different types of pain. You can use the electrode pads for about 20 applications before they have to be replaced (Tip: If you clean your skin before application, the electrode pads last longer).
✓ Prevent pain with electrical muscle stimulation (EMS)
If you train your muscles, e.g. with electrical muscle stimulation, you can reduce the effort to relieve pain. With EMS you can strenghten your muscles and promote blood circulation . Your muscles will contract, similar to a classic workout. A common cause of back pain is a muscular imbalance or a curvature of the back. Often these are consequences of a sedentary lifestyle or neglected training of the muscles. A TENS machine with an additional EMS function can help you to alleviate and also prevent types of pain.
✓ Reduce stress with a massage
Beside those application already mentioned, you can use a TENS machine also for massage. Maybe it sounds weird to you, but it is simple. If you are stressed, you don't have to go to a massage practice. You can use a TENS machine easily at home. By the application of TENS you will feel a slight tingling sensation pass through your skin. Like a classic massage, you can use the stimulation current device for any part of your body. The electrical impulses release endorphins, wich help you to reduce stress.
✓ Relief pain with TENS programs as well as individual parameter settings
Our TENS machines have a lot of different pre-installed programs, which you can use for pain relief. These programs are not enough? No problem! Our TENS EMS combo device has 5 additional programs with individual parameter settings. You can adjust the parameter with your doctor or according to your requirements. If you have further questions about these programs, you can contact us anytime. Our experts for medical devices will gladly help you.
How EMS works
EMS, which stands for Electrical Muscle Stimulation, is an accepted and proven way of treating muscular injuries. This is being widely used in hospitals and sports clinics for the treatment of muscular injuries and for the re-education of paralyzed muscles, to prevent atrophy in affected muscles and improving muscle tone and blood circulation. EMS has also been used successfully for many years in the field of high-performance sport for muscle regeneration and muscle development.
The brain sends impulses to a muscle which causes the muscle to work. An EMS machine generates artificial stimulation of the muscle by the use of low frequency electrical pulses that stimulate the nerves located beneath the skin. That leads to a reaction of the targeted muscles. The muscle is unable to distinguish between an impulse from the brain or one that comes from outside. The muscle reacts with a contraction in both cases and uses up energy.
The mechanism of a TENS machine
You already know that a tens machine can help you with pain relief. We want to explain the two operating modes, which lead to pain relief with TENS.
Block the pain transmission
Because of constant and weak activity with high frequency of the tens machine, you can block the transmission of the pain to your brain. Even if you are injured, you won’t perceive pain until the corresponding signals reach your brain. If the signal never reach your brain, you won’t feel pain.
The activation and support of the natural pain control of the body
Our body has a natural pain control. An essential part of it is to produce analgesic substances. These are called endorphins. With the application of the low-frequency “burst”-mode, a TENS machine stimulates your body externally to release endorphins and as a result relieve your pain.
Our tip: Combination of TENS and EMS
The best way to prevent pain is to train your muscles. You can use EMS right after the application of TENS. Our TENS EMS combo machine has 16 pre-installed TENS programs and 14 pre-installed EMS programs, which can help you to alleviate all types of pain and train all different muscles.
TENS can help if you suffer from these types of pain
An additional benefit of a TENS machine is the versatility. Almost every part of the body can be applied by a stimulation current device for pain relief. At our Overview of TENS Application possibilities you get all the information you need. Nevertheless we want to list all types of applications also on this page.
A: Ankle Joint Pain | Arm Pain | Arthritis | Arthrosis
B: Back Pain | Bruxism
C: Calf Pain | Carpal Tunnel Syndrom
E: Elbow Pain
F: Fibromyalgia | Finger or Thumb Pain | Feet Pain
G: Golf Elbow
K: Knee Joint Pain | Knee Pain
L: Lower Arm Pain | Lumbago and Sciatica | Lumbar Spine Pain
N: Neck Pain
P: Phantom Pain | Polyneuropathy | Poor blood flow
S: Scar Pain | Shoulder Pain
T: Tennis Elbow | Tension Headaches
W: Whiplast | Wrist Pain | Wryneck Torticollis
Side effects and contraindications
If applied correctly, TENS is supposed to be without side effects. A few people can be allergic to the adhesive or don't like the feeling of stimulation. There are also a few circumstances where you shouldn't use a tens machine:
- - Heart diseases or cardiac arrhythmia
- - Cardiac pacemakers
- - Open wounds
- - Pregnancy
- - Tumors
- - Implants
- - Epilepsy
Combination of TENS and thermotherapy
With thermotherapy you can increase the effect of your TENS treatment. You can distinguish heat therapy from cold therapy.
Heat therapy: Promotes blood flow and relax the muscles. Is suited for chronic diseases like arthrosis or muscular tensions.
Cold therapy: Is suited for quick measures against injuries or joint inflammation to alleviate pain.
