The Pro Tens Unit from Metron is a battery-operated TENS device for pain relief, that uses dials to adjust pulse width, pulse rate, amplitude and mode so you can customize your massage experience.
A Tens machine, or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator, is an electrotherapy device that sends gentle electrical signals to stimulate the nerves under the skin via electrodes. Tens units are an effective treatment to alleviate neuropathic pain (pain that is due to nerve damage) or acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain such as 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.
The inbuilt timer with a 15, 30 and 60 minutes duration, will stop the treatment at these preset times.
One of the advantages of this unit is the dual-channel output. 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 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.
