Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

Millions of people suffer from frequent or even chronic pain, such as:

  • Headaches
  • Backache
  • Pain in the nape of the neck
  • Pain in the joints
  • Pain due to rheumatic diseases
  • Pain due to sporting accidents

Acute or chronic pain can effectively be treated with Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation without any need for drugs and dangerous side effects. Electrodes are placed at certain body regions which by transmitting gentle electrical impulses can impede the transmission of pain sensation. In addition, messenger substances can increasingly be released, which will help to alleviate pain.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

For many years  Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) has been used for muscle training in sport and fitness centres to obtain a more attractive, slimmer and powerful body. Fields of application are for instance:

  • Muscle regeneration
  • Warming up of muscles
  • Developing of muscles
  • Skin lifting
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Active relaxation by lymph drainage
  • Aerobic
  • Endurance training

Furthermore, EMS is used in medicine mainly for rehabilitation purposes, e.g.

  • Slipped disk
  • Acute and chronic backache
  • Rheumatic diseases
  • To limber a person’s muscles
  • Improving agility of joints

A muscle stimulation carried out at regular intervals can help to maintain a person’s agility and muscular strength, even if the region of the body must be kept immobile. EMS can thus have a shortening effect on rehabilitation time. There is only a minimum strain on tendons and joints during this kind of muscle training. During EMS treatment, electrical stimuli are used to excite the nerves via the skin, triggering a muscle contraction. The muscle cannot distinguish between the two activating causes. It contracts upon brain commands as well as upon exterior electrical stimuli. Thus, no will-power is required to stimulate muscle contraction and metabolic processes effectively.TENS/EMS should not be applied to people with a pacemaker and heart disease, or in regions of skin burns and skin injuries, pregnant women in the abdominal region, and in cases of serious arterial blockage.
