Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation

Transcutaneous means “across the skin”, which is how TENS treatment stimulates the nerve fibres that send and receive pain signals to and from your brain. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (or TENS) therapy sends low voltage electrical currents across your skin through electrode pads that you place near your specific area of pain. These electrical currents stimulate your nerve fibres, effectively blocking or reducing the pain signals that they send to your brain. In turn, you will experience less pain.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation therapy has been used to relieve the pain that comes with many different types of muscle, joint and bone conditions such as osteoarthritis, low back pain and tendinitis. It is also very effective at managing sudden acute pain, such as labour pains, and has been proven to provide some relief for chronic pain sufferers who are unable to find a source or treatment for their pain.

TENS Units and TENS/EMS Combination Units

We have handheld TENS machines specially designed for any specific acute or chronic pain, as well as an obstetric TENS machine to help pregnant women during labour and childbirth, and pain relief and circulation during and after pregnancy.

Our MH-8000 and MH-6000 units are TENS/EMS combination machines that have both TENS and EMS functionality in one lightweight, portable unit. With these powerful models you can have all the fantastic benefits of TENS for pain relief as well as EMS for muscle strengthening and safe repairing of injured areas.

You have the flexibility of powering all our devices with either a safe 9 volt battery or with the included AC power adaptor, so you can use your TENS unit both at home and on the go. These highly advanced and innovative machines come fully configured with a number of pre-set treatment programs as well as space for you to store your own custom modes, for ultimate efficiency and adaptability.

All our units come complete with professional quality TENS pads, TENS leads, a protective case, instruction manual, 240 volt AC power adaptor and a 9 volt alkaline battery.

Treat the “Untreatable” Types of Pain

Complicated types of pain such as nerve pain and chronic pain are very difficult to treat with traditional methods and treatments, because they are caused by problems with the signals from your nervous system and the receptors in your brain. However many sufferers from nerve and chronic pain have found relief using Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) treatments, because it is directly focused on changing the way your brain receives pain signals from your nerve fibres.

Nerve pain is caused by problems with the nerves themselves, sending pain signals to your brain and causing you to feel the pain constantly. It’s often felt as burning, stabbing, throbbing or shooting sensations, or like electric shocks and sharp aches. Nerve pain commonly comes from conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, HIV infection and shingles.

Traditional painkillers like paracetamol, codeine and anti-inflammatories usually have no effect on nerve pain because your brain is not receiving normal pain signals. It often requires medicine that targets different parts of your brain, such as anti-depressants or anti-epileptic medication, many people don’t feel comfortable taking. TENS treatment can be very effective at relieving nerve pain associated with nerve disorders and conditions, because it specifically targets your nerves and not just your muscles or tissue.

Chronic pain is a very complex type of pain because it stimulates other parts of your brain that are not just associated with pain signals, such as the parts that are involved with emotions and fear. This can lead to a lot of mental and emotional conditions that are linked to your chronic pain, such as depression, pain catastrophising and sleep disorders.

When you suffer from chronic pain your brain also increases the strength of the pain signals being sent from your nerve fibres, which in turn increases the level of pain you feel. So your pain feels much more extreme, as well as causing changes in your emotional and mental state. Chronic pain sufferers often never find a source or long-term treatment for their pain, and usually just have to learn to live with it.

While Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation therapy will not cure chronic pain, it can help significantly with relieving and managing the amount of pain that comes with it because it focuses on interfering with the transmission of your pain signals so that you feel less of it.

A Basic Guide to TENS Pain Relief

Below is a basic guide to using your TENS machine to relieve a few of the most common types of pain.

Maintain Your TENS Unit

Our high quality TENS and TENS/EMS combination machines only require very little maintenance to keep them operating efficiently. Follow these simple instructions and your TENS unit will stay in top condition:

-   Take care of the electrode pads by cleaning and preparing your skin before you use them, and storing them correctly between uses. You can find more detailed information about caring for your electrode pads on our TENS Pads page. We also supply a full range of TENS replacement pads when it comes time to replace them.

-  Remove the leads from your TENS unit when you’re not using it.

-  Wipe your unit clean with a damp cloth on a regular basis. Do not use solvents or submerge it in water.

-  Change the batteries regularly. If you’re not expecting to use your TENS unit for an extended period of time, remove the batteries to prevent any possible acid from leaking into the machine. You can find more information about battery use on our TENS Machine Maintenance page.

-  Store your TENS unit and accessories in its protective case in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.

-  Do not use your TENS unit around flammable materials
