Portable, effective TENS therapy

Stimulates sensory nerves to block pain
TENS therapy uses low frequency electrical current to treat acute and chronic pain by stimulating sensory nerves and suppressing the sensation of pain.

Simple user interface
To improve patient compliance and clinical outcomes, the RS-TENS Plus features only a few simple controls and preset programming options. Patients quickly benefit from the therapy and spend less time hassling with technical settings.

Multiple program settings
The RS-TENS Plus is preset with five programs. For more sensitive patients, setting a higher frequency and lower impulse will gently and gradually relieve pain during a 20 to 30 minute treatment. Patients experiencing mild pain can use a higher frequency and higher impulse to produce a pain-inhibiting effect almost immediately.

 

 

Each program varies to provide the patient options throughout their treatment time to ensure that they do not accommodate to the signal and receive the pain relief they require to go about their daily activities. A single PROGRAM push button allows a patient to scroll through the five unique, preset program options.

Lightweight, convenient and portable
Compact and easy-to-use at home, patients can fit TENS therapy into their daily routines. It is lightweight, about the size of a deck of playing cards and easily clips to a waist belt. It comes in a small fabric carrying case with a padded interior for exception portability and protection while on the go.

Why physicians prescribe TENS

  • Symptomatic relief and management of chronic and intractable pain.
  • Adjunctive treatment in the management of postsurgical and post-traumatic acute pain conditions.

Clinical considerations
TENS is an effective alternative to drugs since it is non-invasive and non-narcotic. In clinical studies, TENS has been shown to be able to reduce the need for pain medication by 50%.*
