- What is TENS ?
TENS: “Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation”- a safe, non-invasive, drug free method of pain relief used by Physical Therapists and professional Doctors for over decades. By delivering stable pulses to the skin to stimulate nerve fibers, Tens unit could effectively block the pain signal to people’s brain. At the same times, increases natural endorphins, which is a natural pain reliever. In many cases, the reduction or elimination of pain lasts longer than the period of stimulation.
What is EMS ?
EMS: “Electrical Muscle Stimulation” is an internationally accepted and proven way of treating muscular injuries. It works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle needing treatment; this causes the muscle to exercise passively. When the muscle receives this signal it contracts as if the brain has sent the signal itself. As the signal strength increases, the muscle flexes as in physical exercise. Then when the pulse ceases, the muscle relaxes and the cycle starts over again, (Stimulation, Contraction and Relaxation.)

- Precise Intensity Control
- There are 100 steps of intensity level controlled by press buttons from 1 to 100mA.
- Press Button Control
- The power, intensity level and parameter are controlled by press buttons, which is easy for the users to adjust the settings. All of the buttons are protected by a swing door to avoid accidental touch.
- Large Liquid Crystal Display
- A large LCD in 6.1 x 4.4 cm showing the intensity level, settings and treatment timer. The selected modes and parameters are readable.
- Two Treatment Timers
- There are two individual timers controlling the output of CH1, CH2 & CH3, CH4. This function is ideal when two patients accept treatment with the same machine.
- Treatment Time Countdown
- The output will shut off automatically when time is up.
- Compliance Meter: The unit can store 60 sets of record of operation
