For medical conditions that require muscle stimulation and pain treatment, the Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS) is a device used to treat such symptoms. This machine is simple and safe to use, sending electrical impulses through the skin’s surface and stimulating the muscles and nerves related to natural muscle contractions. The TENS has been used for decades to relieve chronic and acute pain in the lower back and joints. The wireless TENS or the iTENS units are now widely available and used to tone the ab muscles and reduce weight. Reports have shown that the TENS device has proven effective in those that struggle to reduce their weight.
The TENS machine produces low-frequency electrical currents to the nerves, and when the current is introduced, it causes the muscles to contract, which tones the forces. The electrical nerve stimulator machine is primarily used to rehabilitate nerve and muscular injuries. However, many bodybuilders and other health-conscious people use TENS to lose weight and build muscle. As opposed to supporting the multimillion-dollar weight loss industry by purchasing fad weight-loss products, consider purchasing a TENS machine for safer and healthier effective results. When using the TENS unit, you will also need to follow a proper exercise program and eat a well-balanced diet for positive results. The way to use the device is by cleansing the area where the device will be placed to remove any residual bacteria. Place a small gel pad on each pad called the wings before applying the pads to the skin, as this will prevent any electrical burns to the skin. The intensity level can be adjusted using the iTENS app. When using the TENS for the first time, you should start with the lowest setting and gradually increase the intensity with increased usage. You may cause muscle weakness and fatigue if you start with a high-intensity level.
You can use this nerve stimulator machine for up to 24 hours on a low-intensity level as the device is wireless, portable and entirely safe for wear.
