BodyMed™ Dual Channel Digital TENS Unit 320C 5 mode Extra-thick, soft pads
A Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Unit is a medical device used to treat and eliminate pain using electric pulses. TENS units transmit small square electrical pulses to electrodes, which then transmit this electrical pulse to the underlying nerves. The primary components of a TENS unit are electrodes, an advanced computer chip and an electrical battery source.
All BodyMed TENS units have protective caps over the amplitude adjustment knobs to prevent unintended changes to the pulse amplitude
All Digital BodyMed units (TENS, EMS and IF) have a patient compliance feature that allows the prescribing doctor to monitor the patient's usage of the device
All BodyMed Electrotherapy units come in hard-sided protective plastic cases
BodyMed® electrotherapy units utilize standard lead wires and “pigtail’-style electrodes
All units include two lead wires, one pack (4) electrodes, manual and 9-volt battery
How Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation works:
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive, drug free method of controlling pain. TENS Units use tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain, allowing for a return to normal activity. In many people, the reduction or elimination of pain lasts longer than the actual period of stimulation (sometimes as much as three to four times longer). In others, pain is modified while stimulation actually occurs. Unit overrides the pain signal to the brain by sending a comfortable electronic impulse. When the TENS Unit overrides the pain signal, it "tricks" the brain into thinking their is NO PAIN. This produces Fast and Rapid Pain Relief, usually within a minute or two. You can control and customize the intensity, pulse rate, and pulse width to "experiment" and find the best setting for your pain relief.
