EMPI offers top of the range electrotherapy devices that are used the world over. They combine this with a wide range of accessories that are required for their Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) devices and their Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) devices. These devices require additional accessories and electrodes so as to complete the unit.
The EMPI TENS is a multifunctional device that has the ability to function in three different ways. It can function as a neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) device. It can also function as a Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation device (TENS) and finally as a high voltage device. This device is in essence a hand held version of the costly table top device found in most clinics. It operates on AA batteries that can be recharged, making it ideal for both home and clinical use.
The device releases low level charges that help the muscles contract allowing for the NMES function.
For clinicians, this device allows for the programming of the settings allowing them to customize the settings to their requirement.
Unlike other units, this TENS device comes with a program lock that ensures patients do not change the settings once they have left the clinical setting. The output intensity can be reproduced according to each patient.
This all rounder device get a rating of 4.8 stars out of a possible 5 stars due to its wide range of functions and settings.
