A Wireless Tens Massage Therapy System

Pain is the body's warning system. It alerts us to injury or Illness. When the body is functioning normally, pain serves as a vital warning sign when something is not right. In are without pain a person would not know when to get away from danger or to seek medical help. Pain signals in the form of electrical impulses, travel through the body's nervous system from the site of the injury or Ailment to the brain. Then, at the brain prosthesis impulses are interpreted as pain.

T. E. N. S. Stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation.  Pain, whether chronic (long-term) or acute (short-term, often from surgery or trauma), can be relieved through a variety of methods including drugs, topical ointments, surgery, and electrical stimulation. T. E. N. S. Devices deliver mild electrical pulses through the skin to stimulate the cutaneous (surface) and afferent (deep) nerves to help control pain. Unlike drugs or topical ointments, T. E. N. S. Does not have any known side effects.

Electric Massager / Tens Massager Therapy Device Is Based On Traditional Chinese Medicine(Tcm) Theory, Physics, Bionics And Electrobiology Developed Through Many Years Of Clinical Practice.

The TENS massager therapy device is a type of physical therapy that produces electrical pulses to create nerve stimulation by transferring minute electrical impulses through electrodes, a sticky patch positioned on the skin. The electrical signals pass through the Massager/TENS unit through wires to the electrodes (Ashi pads).  Unlike drugs or Topical ointments, TENS Does not have any known side effects.

There are two major theories as to how electrical stimulation relieves pain. According to the "gate control theory" pain and non-pain impulses are sent to the brain from the local nervous system. These impulses travel through the cutaneous nerves to the deeper afferent nerves and then to the spinal cord and brain. Along the path are many areas Referred to as "gates." These gates control which impulses are allowed to continuously to the brain. The gates prevent the brain from receiving too much information too quickly. Since the same nerve can not carry a pain impulse and a non-pain impulses simultaneously, the stronger, non-pain impulses (from the TENS Device) "controls the gate," and basically over rides the pain signal, resulting in less pain perception.

According to the second theory, TENS Stimulation encourages one's body to produce and release greater amounts of a chemical called endorphin. Endorphins are our body's own natural painkillers therein are released as a natural function to
overcome pain.  Endorphins interact with pain receptors, blocking the perception of pain, much as the pharmaceutical drugs or a narcotic zoals does, was but without the side effects associated with prosthesis types of drugs.

TENS Has no curative value.  However, for many people who are Suffering from pain due to an injury or ailment, the use of TENS Can help manage pain considerably. Pain sufferers who have not been able to find relief from drugs or who have experienced  uncomfortable side effects from drugs, find TENS To be a great alternative in controlling the pain. In today's fast-paced lifestyle, many people just do not have the time to be set back due to pain. TENS Devices can help them control and manage hun pain, so that they are still able to perform daily functions at home or at work, return to work sooner, or perhaps enjoy more activities than they have before.

History Of T.E.N.S

Electrical stimulation for pain control was used in ancient Rome, 63 A.D. It was reported by Scribonius Largus that pain was relieved by standing on an electrical fish at the seashore.  In the 16th through the 18th century various electrostatic devices were used for headache and other pains. Benjamin Franklin was a proponent of this method for pain relief. In the nineteenth century a device called the electreat, along with numerous other devices were used for pain control and cancer cures. Only the electreat survived into the twentieth century, but was not portable, and had limited control of the stimulus.

The first modern, patient-wearable TENS was patented in the United States in 1974. It was initially used for testing the tolerance of chronic pain patients to electrical stimulation before implantation of electrodes in the spinal cord dorsal column.
The electrodes were attached to an implanted receiver, which received its power from an antenna worn on the surface of the skin. Although intended only for testing tolerance to electrical stimulation, many of the patients said they received so much relief from the TENS itself that they never returned for the implant.

A number of companies began manufacturing TENS units after the commercial success of the Medtronic device became known. The neurological division of Medtronic, founded by Don Maurer, Ed Schuck and Dr. Charles Ray, developed a number of applications for implanted electrical stimulation devices for treatment of epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and other disorders of the nervous system.

Today many people confuse TENS with Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS). EMS and TENS devices look similar, with both using long electric lead wires and electrodes. TENS is for blocking pain, where EMS is for stimulating muscles.

What is TENS?

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses electrical current delivered through electrodes to the skin for pain relief. Electrical stimulation of the nerves may encourage the body to produce natural painkillers called endorphins, which may block the perception of pain.

TENS treatments are performed using the  two electrodes (wires that conduct electrical current) connected from the machine to the skin. The electrodes are often placed on the area of pain or at a pressure point, creating a circuit of electrical impulses that travels along nerve fibers. The machine can be set for different wavelength frequency, such as a steady flow of electrical current or a burst of electrical current, and for intensity of electrical current. These settings are usually determined by your physical therapist or doctor.  After an introduction to and instruction in this therapy, TENS can be done at home.

What Is TENS Used For?

TENS is used to relieve pain for several different types of illnesses and conditions. It is used most often to treat muscle, joint, or bone problems that occur with illnesses such as osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia, or for conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, or bursitis. TENS has also been used to treat sudden (acute) pain, such as labor pain, and long-lasting (chronic) pain, such as cancer pain.

Although TENS may help relieve pain for some people, its effectiveness has not been proven, and it is not considered to be a long-term solution to pain.

Is TENS Safe?

TENS is generally considered safe, although the machine could harm an adult or child if misused. Have your physical therapist or doctor show you the proper way to use the machine, and follow these instructions carefully.
