TENS Unit Stimulation – stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. Pain, whether chronic (long-term) or acute (short-term, often from surgery or trauma), can be relieved through a variety of methods including drugs, topical ointments, surgery, and electrical stimulation. T.E.N.S. devices deliver mild electrical pulses through the skin to stimulate the cutaneous (surface) and afferent (deep) nerves to help control pain. Unlike drugs or topical ointments, T.E.N.S. do not have any known side effects.
Muscle Stimulation Unit - Primarily used for preventing disuse atrophy (muscle wasting). Stronger than a TENS unit, with a wider pulse width to elicit muscle contraction for a period of time. More than just nerve stimulation, muscles are contracted and relaxed on and off to strengthen muscles, increase blood circulation to the area, and/or to reduce edema. Device features include adjustable pulse rate, width, amplitude, ramp, alternating or synchronous stimulation.
Interferential Unit - Interferential Therapy has been used exTENSively for managing post-surgical, post-traumatic acute pain, edema and inflammation reduction. It has been used successfully for a wide variety of chronic pain and procedures. With and Interferential Unit, current perfuses to greater depths and over a larger volume of tissue than other forms of electrical therapy. Interferential current crosses the skin with greater ease and with less stimulation of cutaneous nociceptors allowing greater patient comfort during electrical stimulation. In addition, because medium-frequency (Interferential) current is tolerated better by the skin, the dosage can be increased, thus improving the ability of the Interferential current to permeate tissues and allowing easier access to deep structures.
Russian Therapy - a specific form of Electro stimulation with a symmetrical Biphasic Square waveform produced by dividing a 2500Hz-carrier frequency into 50Hz packets. It was originally developed by the Russian Olympic team for muscle mass enhancements. Russian Muscle Stimulation is similar to EMS in that it is designed to stimulate motor nerves. However the high frequency of 2500Hz allows for deeper muscle penetration and a more complete and stronger contraction of the muscle fibers.
