Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, or “TENS” devices, have been prescribed by doctors as an effective way to reduce or even eliminate pain for decades. The TENS devices work by sending tiny electrical signals through the skin to intercept pain signals from reaching the brain and help to release endorphins, the body’s own natural pain fighting chemical.
Until now, most wearable medical technologies that work in tandem with a smart phone have been used to gather data or deliver biofeedback, whereas the iTENS actually delivers a therapeutic treatment stimuli to provide instant and long-lasting pain relief. In addition, the iTENS measures your pain scale, tracks your results, and charts your progress. Merging modern technology with the proven results of “TENS therapy,” the iTENS is a medical grade device that does not require a prescription. The lithium-ion battery provides 24 hours of use on a single charge, and the peel ‘n’ stick gel pads are reusable and replaceable for multiple applications at a very low cost to the user.
“Pain relief meets wearable tech with our new iTENS device,” shared iTENS CEO Joshua Lefkovitz. “Designed for people in need of a portable and convenient pain management solution that doesn’t involve taking prescription medication, iTENS is thin, flexible, discreet, and easy to operate with the push of a button from the iTENS app. We’re forging the way in a new category of alternative health with this launch and are excited to get supporters on board from the beginning with our Indiegogo campaign.”
