The Sports TENS 2 is a multi-purpose combination unit that offers the latest in electro muscle stimulation and TENS. It has three basic functions, which can be used in combination: 1. Stimulation of sensory nerves for Pain Relief (TENS). 2. Stimulation of motor nerves and muscle tissue (EMS) to build and alter muscle function. 3. A massage effect. To achieve this, the device has two independent stimulation channels and four self adhesive electrodes. It offers a choice from a large number of settings designed to increase general wellbeing, alleviate pain, maintain physical fitness, aid relaxation, revitalize muscles and combat fatigue. You can either select these settings from pre-set programmes or determine them yourself according to your requirements.
Sports TENS is a powerful fitness and performance muscle stimulator for body toning, shaping, beauty and relaxation. It has TENS settings to relieve pain due to injury and over-training. Gentle massage is provided for relaxation and de-stressing.
Sports TENS is flexible enough to help with all stages of training and recovery. It has 27 EMS programmes, 10 TENS programmes, 10 massage programmes and 8 user defined programmes enabling you to experiment and save your favourite settings - unrivalled performance for a product of this size and price.
Sufficient memory for a 30 day exercise programme comprising of 3 uses a day. The memory records usage time and average intensity used. For training, this enables you to keep an exercise diary, for rehabilitation and pain relief it offers an objective treatment record.
TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. TENS stimulates your body's own natural defences against pain. It is totally safe, and has been used successfully by thousands of pain sufferers. TENS sends a gentle stimulation through the skin which works in TWO ways:-
Stimulating the sensory nerves, which carry touch and temperature signals. These nerves go to the same connections in the spine as the nerves carrying pain. A strong sensory signal will block the pain signal travelling up the spine to the brain. This is known as closing the "Pain Gate" and takes effect quite quickly after the unit is switched on. You can use TENS several times a day, for as long as you like.
At low frequency settings, and slightly stronger output, TENS drives the motor nerves to produce a small repetitive muscle contraction. This is seen by the brain as exercise, and this promotes release of Endorphins - your body's own natural pain killer. The relief builds up and normally takes about 40 minutes to reach a maximum level which can last for hours after the machine is switched off. By using TENS you can expect to achieve a significant reduction in pain.
There are no known side effects to TENS use and long-term TENS use is not harmful.
The TENS effect is confined to the nerves entering a single vertebra in the spine. To be effective, you therefore need to stimulate a sensory nerve entering the spine at the same level as the nerve carrying the pain. For this reason electrodes are usually first placed where the greatest pain is felt. Nerves follow the curve of the ribs, and spiral around the limbs, so you will need to try different positions until you find the best for you. Try moving the electrodes short distances to establish the positions that are most effective for you. TENS is clinically tested and approved for many applications including:
EMS stands for Electrical Muscle Stimulation and is a widespread and generally recognized method that has been used for years in sports and rehabilitation medicine. In the sports and fitness field, one of the uses of EMS is as a supplement to conventional muscle training, in order to increase the efficiency of muscle groups and adapt physical proportions to the desired aesthetic results. EMS has two main applications. Firstly, a targeted strengthening of musculature can be produced (Activating application) and secondly a relaxing, resting effect can also be achieved (Relaxing application). EMS successfully rebuilds and tones muscles. Different levels of muscle contraction are achieved by sending electrical impulses of various types, depending on the programme selected, into the body. These muscle contractions retrain the muscles, increase their effectiveness and improve their condition. This is beneficial where muscles - for whatever reason - have not been in regular use and have lost condition (muscle atrophy). For sports, the benefit is to increase the effect of training and enhance performance. Typical uses are:-
The effect on muscle tone of electrical stimulation (EMS) is generally only noticeable after regularly repeated application. Electrical stimulation does not replace regular exercising of the muscle, but is able to reasonably supplement it. Muscle wastage: EMS is used in the treatment of medical conditions involving muscle wastage including: Neuromuscular facilitation - Muscle reeducation - Muscle training - Prevention/slowing of atrophy/hypotrophy - Preventing postoperative muscle weakness - Reduction of spasticity - Maintaining or increasing range of motion - Training of partial peripheral nerve damage with signs of reinnervation - Treatment of scoliosis. Relaxing applications includes the following:
