What is a Compact TENS?
COMPACT TENS is a non-invasive Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS). A medical device specifically designed to assist in the management of chronic and acute pain.
How does it work?
COMPACT TENS sends small, safe, electrical signals into the body via electrodes which are placed on the skin. The stimulus aids the relief of pain in 3 ways:
1. By blocking the pain messages from reaching the brain via the nerves.
2. By stimulating the release of the body’s naturally occurring pain-relieving endorphins.
3. By providing a distraction while the pain is occurring.
Is it safe?
There are no known side-effects if the COMPACT TENS is used appropriately. The user is always in control when using the COMPACT TENS.
Warning: It is recommended that patients with heart and/or circulation problems, cardio-vascular problems or implanted cardiac pacemakers seek medical advice prior to using any TENS device.
