The Pro TENS Unit by Metron offers pain relief through electrotherapy or TENS therapy. This form of non-invasive therapy provides relief from pain caused by a wide range of conditions from muscle strains or injuries, to ongoing long-lasting problems such as leg, hip, back and neck pain. This very popular Tens unit is ideal for therapeutic use by therapists looking for a straightforward yet effective approach to pain relief.
Why should you use the Pro Tens Unit?
Supplied complete with wire leads and self-adhesive electrodes, the analogue Pro TENS Unit is an effective treatment to alleviate neuropathic pain (pain that is due to nerve damage) or acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. It is very suited for cervical, lower back, lumbago, leg pain, sciatica, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, tennis elbow, pinched nerves, and muscle and joint pain and strain. It is also considered to improve the muscles' flexibility and activate blood flow.
TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) therapy uses low-voltage electrical current which sends a signal to the nerves under the skin through electrodes. This provides effective pain relief. This unit features an integral timer and dials to provide instant and hassle-free treatments.
The control dials will adjust the pulse width, pulse rate, intensity and mode so you can customise your massage experience.
The Pro Tens Unit is compact in size to ensure that it can be carried around between locations as required. It also includes a hard carry case, making it both easier to transport and protect when in transit. This will make it very useful if you need to carry the unit to another location.
Dual-channel for effective treatment
One of the advantages of this unit is the dual-channel output. 2 pads are one channel, 4 pads are two channels. Always use the pads in pairs. It allows for the placement of 2 x 2 electrodes over the painful area. The channels are isolated, meaning that you can treat two separate muscle groups at the same time.
The inbuilt timer with a 15, 30 and 60 minutes duration, will stop the treatment at these preset times.
The portable Pro Tens Unit incorporates a variety of parameters to ensure an effective treatment: mode control, pulse rate control, pulse width control, pulse intensity control and timer control.
