The TENS Machine - Electric Stimulation Device
The TENS machine (short for "Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation") is an electric stimulation device that is used for electric stimulation therapy when treating chronic pain and for muscle stimulation. The TENS machine emits electrical waves onto the patient's skin, which is often carried out through reuseable adhesive electrodes. During electric stimulation therapy via electrical stimulation, the afferent nerve pathways of the body are influenced, which should lead to pain superimposition and consequently a hindrance to the pain signals transmitted to the brain as a so-called "Gate Control Mechanism." The electrodes are placed on or near the bodily region that is to be treated.
The use of the handy, portable electric stimulation machine is particularly easy; therefore, the patient can even use the TENS machine at home, following a doctor's or therapist's instructions. Depending on the manufacturer, the electric stimulation machine usually has pre-set programmes that can be selected based on desired treatment goals. The TENS machine is operated with common batteries. With many devices, the included adhesive electrodes can be washed and used over a longer period of time.
The TENS Machine is Used for Chronic Pain
One area of application for the TENS machine is pain reduction for chronic pain, such as arthralgia, neuralgia or chronic headaches. Even when treating phantom pains, the TENS machine provides an economical effect. The electric stimulation machine is, therefore, often used in ambulatory or stationary pain therapy for treating pain.
