This is a TENS (Transcutaneous Electronic Nerve Stimulator) unit device that is easy to use and comes with more additional features than your usual TENS device. It comes with a different number of operating modes that can be accessed with just one touch of a button. It is call Omron TENS after the company that manufactures it. Along with the device, Omron has also come up with long life pads that alleviate the need to use the messy gels you would be forced to use with the other TENS machines.
These product comes with a number of features which make it an attractive alternative to other TENS devices. They include:
- It helps relieve pain
- Helps in the management of muscular injuries
- Gives one a selection of different therapy levels for one to choose the intensity required.
- Comes with a low frequency stimulation module for relieving muscle tension.
- Comes with long life pads that can be used up to 300 times.
The reason the OMRON TENS unit has a combination of nerve stimulation and muscle relief is because pain is often associated with stiffness and the muscle relief option helps the muscles to passively exercise. If a patient is in chronic pain, they may not have the ability to exercise their muscles and this causes stiffness which can in turn lead to loss of mobility. The Omron TENS device comes in handy to ensure that this does not happen.
