The iTENS device is the world’s first true wireless TENS therapy device that is fully controlled with an IOS or Android based app. It is a modern day electrotherapy device that merges wearable technology with the effective and lasting pain relief of a TENS unit. No prescription is needed for this approved over-the-counter, drug-free way to combat pain. The iTENS merges the proven pain relief of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) with technology of your smart phone via Bluetooth.
The iTENS is the most advanced, pocket-sized and fully portable wireless TENS system on the market. The iTENS provides several different modes of operation and a variety of treatment options that are well organised for the user into presets.
The iTENS incorporates advanced TENS electronics, a state-of-the-art APP, and an energy efficient lithium-ion battery that provides exceptional battery life for on-the-go daily use. The iTENS is safe, drug-free, easy to use, and most importantly an effective tool in managing your pain.
WHAT IS TENS
T.E.N.S stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. TENS is a non-invasive, approved, drug-free alternative for managing pain. For the past twenty years, doctors have been prescribing TENS as an effective way to reduce or even eliminate pain. TENS sends tiny electrical signals through your skin to the nerve endings and suppress pain in two ways:
1. Gate Control overriding the nerve pain signals before they reach the brain
2. Endorphin release releasing the body’s own natural pain fighting chemicals called endorphins.
TENS deploys waveforms that incorporate both of these clinical effects to provide immediate and long-lasting pain relief. TENS works by sending tiny electrical signals to the body’s nerve or muscle fibers through the skin to the nerves. This suppresses pain by blocking the pain signals before they reach the brain. TENS sends these gentle impulses through the wireless electrodes attached to the body at strategic pain sites on the body. Because there are many different kinds of pain, and each individual is unique, pain relief varies from person to person. Some users experience pain relief only while the TENS unit is turned on. For others, relief continues for a length of time even after the unit is turned off.
