What is a Modulated TENS Machine?

People who suffer from long-term (chronic) pain look toward the direction of electrical stimulation machines or electrotherapy as an alternative or complementary treatment to pain management. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a popular therapy that uses low-voltage electrical impulses to stimulate the nerves and block pain. The electrical impulses from a modulated TENS machine are known to relieve pain as they occur.

A TENS machine like wireless the iTENS is a portable device composed of electrodes with gel pads to transmit small electrical currents to the body through the skin. When the electrical currents reach the nerve fibres, they stimulate the nerves to block pain signals from reaching the brain and spinal cord. They also enable the release of natural chemicals like endorphins. The constant nerve stimulation reduces the sensation of pain. A TENS unit typically has low and high-frequency settings. The iTENS unit treatment comes with pre-set settings for easier access. A modulated TENS is one where you can set your intensity level, pulse rate, pulse width, and time duration.

Modulated TENS Machine: Using the iTENS

Each person has different thresholds for pain. Having a high threshold means you can tolerate a higher degree of pain. A modulated TENS machine is better when you achieve your desired results by setting it higher or lower than the current intensity level. Some people may feel “strong but comfortable” at different levels. To help with these variations, iTENS has two modes: the Pre-set mode and the Manual mode.

  • Pre-set mode: a ready-to-use treatment option for different kinds of pain. The advisable frequency, pulse width, and timer are ready for the specific condition or pain the user wants to treat. Pain in the back has a different setting from pain in the shoulder. Arthritis has other parameters from fibromyalgia or sciatica.
  • Manual mode – allows you to custom adjust the TENS settings you want and save them so you can use them next time. You can set the parameters to the point where you will feel intense stimulation but comfortable.

The wireless iTENS machine is a safe, effective, and non-invasive approach to pain management. People who want to treat pain naturally choose TENS because it is drug-free with no adverse side effects. TENS works best with added physical activities (like exercise). Its light and slim design easily fit under your clothes during work. The iTENS is a modulated TENS machine that lets you focus on your priorities without the interference of pain.
