2 Channel TENS / NMES
1. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS)
2. Electrical Muscle Stimulator (EMS)
PhysiPod 2 Channel TENS
This 2 channel digital combined TENS/NMES unit has 10 pre-set programs (P1-P10) and 10 user adjustable programs (U1-U10), including 6 modes, (on/off; standby; preset mode treatment time user preset mode; program mode; and user adjustable mode). The 2 channels work independently of each other and can work simultaneously. The default setting is a combined TENS/NMES setting for the relief of pain. Each program produces different effects suited to a specific application. It can be used for relaxation; pain relief; to decrease muscle spasm; to improve muscular hypertonicity and strength; and increasing local blood circulation. It has a belt clip and can be easily attached to one’s clothing, so you can move around during treatment. The large LCD display ensures accuracy and is easy to use.
Electrical Stimulator primarily used for Pain Relief, (low intensity, short impulses).
Electrode placement can be :
1. Over the site of pain and one in the same dermatome, myotome or sclerotome.
2. Over trigger or acupuncture points.
3. Over the line of the peripheral nerve for neuralgia.
4. Over the spinal nerve roots, close to the spine.
Stimulation of both sensory,( afferent), and motor,(efferent), peripheral nerves to reduce pain and improve muscle function.
Therapeutic uses can be summarized as follows:
1. Strengthening of healthy innervated muscle.
2. Strengthening of atrophied (disuse) and denervated muscle.
3. Facilitation of motor control.
4. Maintain or increase joint ROM.
5. Increase muscle metabolism and blood flow.
6. Increase venous and lymphatic flow in adjacent tissues.
7. Reduction of oedema, via muscle pumping effect; change in capillary permeability and changes in interstitial fluid.
8. Accelerated tissue healing.
9. Pain relief via a) Gate Effect on A delta (fast) & C (slow) pain fibres in the posterior horn due to stimulation of mechanoreceptors (A beta) fibres.
b) Morphine (Encephalin) effect on the C fibre system.
c) Morphine (Encephalin) in the midbrain involving serotonin as a transmitter.
