Find your matching TENS machines and receive the following benefits:
Relieve your pain and release tension with TENS stimulation current therapy and the right TENS machine! You can fight acute and chronic pain with this form of therapy without medication and side effects - regardless of the painful body part. For example, you can alleviate back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, joint pain, arhtritis, migraines, muscular pain or inflammation with TENS. These types of pain can be relieved by a TENS therapy and, if applied properly, is without side effects. A n additional benefit is, that you can reduce or waive medication. At axion you will find certified and high-quality TENS machines to fight your pain from head to toe.
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.
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.

Large electrode pad selection
Bought TENS EMS Combo Machine STIM-PRO X9 and a few different sized electrodes. Took about 4 days to arrive from germany to portugal, everything worked fine. The device is not difficult to use, and it seems durable enough. The website is what impressed me the most, one can find all the needed information there, very clear and well estructured, it's been very helpful for a new person using this type of device. Overall very satisfied! ps: gummy bears are yummy
It is very user friendly, all our patients used the machine at home comfortably. It is comfortable and gives excellent results.
