Portable TENS, IFC, NMES Machines, are considered a Class II medical device. They are used both by health care practitioners in their practices and by patients at home. The TENS and IFC units provide pain relief by stimulating the sensory nerves. NMES (Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation), also a Class II medical device is intended to produce muscle contraction and is designed to help strengthen muscles.
These portable electrotherapy units come with instructions booklets and 1 set of electrotherapy pads along with batteries.
We strongly recommend that your electrotherapy device be used under the guidance of your healthcare practitioner. Proper placement of electrodes combined with adequate power adjustments are critical in the outcome and performance of these devices. Electrodes and wires will deteriorate with usage and time and need to be replaced on a regular basis, especially for TENS units that are used intensively in rehab clinics.
The Physiotherapy Room carries an extensive line of premium TENS, IFC and NMES units for clinic and for home use. Price variation between the units is often a sign of the quality of current delivered by these machines, combined with technology (programs) and robustness of the material and industrial design of the machines.
