The TENS machine
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) Machines work by emitting a controlled micro-electronic current, called impulses, through the skin to block the nerves from transmitting pain signals to the body’s pain centre. TENS technology blocks the pain signals through fast electrical impulses which override the slower pain impulses that travel along your nerves.
TENS technology has been used for more than 30 years by pain doctors, physical therapists and other professionals to treat both chronic and acute pain.
PAINmate® is an affordable and portable TENS machine, and is discreet and easy to use. Simply apply to your pain point, turn the device on and increase the intensity to a level that provides you with pain relief.
