Dual Channel Micro TENS Unit - Micro-II by ProMed Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation
Electronic Muscle Stimultion is an internationally accepted and proven way of treating muscle injuries. It works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle needing treatment; this causes the muscle to exercise passively. Electronic Muscle Stimultion has a low frequency and this in conjunction with the square wave pattern allows direct work on muscle groupings. Electronic Muscle Stimultion is widely used in hospitals and sports clinics for the treatment of muscular injuries and for the re-education of paralyzed muscles, to prevent atrophy in affected muscles an improving muscle tone and blood circulation.
Long term effects of chronic electrical stimulation are unknown.
Stimulation should not be applied over the carotid sinus nerves, particuarly in patients with a known sensitivity to the carotid sinus reflex.
Stimulation should not be applied over the neck or mouth. Severe spasm of the larygeal and pharyngeal muscles may occur and the contractions may be strong to close the airway or cause difficulty in breathing.
Stimulation should not be applied transthoracically in that the introduction of electrical current into the heart may cause cardiac arrhythmias.
Stimulation should not be applied transcerebrally.
Stimulation should not be applied over swollen, infected, or inflamed areas or skin eruptions.
Stimulation should not be applied over, or in proximity to, cancerous lesions.
