The Thera 3 from Proactive is a versatile all-round electrotherapy device that combines three physiotherapy treatments (TENS, EMS and Massage technology) into one compact device for drug-free pain relief. EMS stimulates the muscles, Massage soothes sore areas and TENS therapy blocks pain signals. They can be used simultaneously to help patients treat chronic and acute muscular pain.
TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulations. The TENS sends a vibration that follows the same pathway as the nerve/ pain pathway and stops the pain from reaching your brain. Tens uses 4 pads in a cross pattern.
EMS is an abbreviation for Electrical Muscle Stimulation. It is used to gain muscle back as it contracts the muscle. Ems uses 2 pads.
The Thera 3 is a dual-channel device, meaning that you can treat 2 areas simultaneously via the isolated channels
The 78 pre-set programs and the manual settings will help customize the treatment according to your doctor’s or physiotherapist’s specifications.
