Ultima 20® Digital Dual Channel TENS Unit - 20 Modes The personal pain relief system that breaks the pain cycle.
Pain is the body's warning system. It alerts us to injury or illness. and it is absolutely necessary for life and health. Unfortunately however, this vital warning system is not equipped with an "off" switch. So sometimes, long after we have gotten the "message" and responded to the problem pain signals keep on being sent to the brain. Pain signals, in the form of electrical impluses, travel to the brain through the body's nervous system from the site of the injury or ailment. In the brain, the impulses are interpreted as pain.
How Ultima Relieves Pain
Ultima 20 is the advanced, pocket sized, fully portable, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) system designed to relieve both accute and persistent pain without shots, drugs or narcotics. It send gentle electrical impulses through the skin and the nerves to surpress pain by scrmbling the pain signals before they get to the brain. Ultima 20 provides five different modes of operation for pain treatment versatility. Because Ultima 20 has two channels, it can be used to relieve pain at two body locations, simultaneously, or to provide relief at a single body location or over a large body area.
Ultima may not work for everybody who suffers from pain. But for many people, Ultma offers comforting relief, reducing and often even eliminating pain. Because there are many differnt kinds of pain, and each individual is unique. Ultima pain relief varies from person to person. Some users experience relief onyl when the Ultima is turned on. For others, relief continues for a length of time even after the unit is turned off. Some users experience relief in one mode, some in others.
The Ultima system can help you return to normal activity. It is about the size of a pack of playing cards and battery powered, so you can wear it everywhere - at home, to work, in your car. And it is equipped with a convienient clip so you can wear it on your belt or even inside your clothing.
How Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation works:
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive, drugfree 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.
The Ultima 20 is a five mode device with dual channels, three wave forms, and twenty treatment modes. This device is remarkable for its body part specific settings for ease of application and set-up by the patients. A cap over the controls is not needed because you can lock the intensity settings into place.
