Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. TENS has received increasing attention in the last few years, because it has the potential to serve as: a strength training tool for healthy subjects and athletes; a rehabilitation and preventive tool for partially or totally immobilized patients; a testing tool for evaluating the neural and/or muscular function in vivo; a post-exercise recovery tool for athletes. The impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes on the skin in direct proximity to the muscles to be stimulated. The impulses mimic the action potential coming from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract. The electrodes are pads that adhere to the skin. The use of TENS has been cited by renowned sports scientists as a complementary technique for sports training and published research is available on the results obtained. 
 
"Strength training by NMES does promote neural and muscular adaptations that are complementary to the well-known effects of voluntary resistance training". This statement is part of the editorial summary of a 2010 world congress of researchers on the subject. Additional studies on practical applications, performed after that congress, pointed out important factors that make the difference between effective and ineffective TENS. Also, as published by reputable Universities, TENS causes adaptation, i.e. training of muscle fibers.

The IPRO Massager III should be used for the symptomatic relief of tension, chronic intractable pain, acute post traumatic pain, acute post-surgical pain and arthritis pain. There is nothing "magic" about Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulations (TENS). TENS is intended to be used to relieve pain. The IPRO Massager III controller sends comfortable impulses through the skin that stimulate the nerve (or nerves) in the treatment area. In many cases, this stimulation will greatly reduce or eliminate the pain sensation the patient feels.

 

The Massage Pads transmit a bioelectrical pulse to effectively ease pain caused by tension or injury, and fatigue of the shoulders, waist, back, arms, and legs. It is particularly suitable for people who constantly work on a computer, are drivers, or airline travelers. With this new portable packaging, the use of massage pads will no longer be bound by time or space. IPRO Massager III will help you achieve your health goals without interrupting your daily routine.

Benefits:

 

Relaxation of muscle spasms and tension, increasing local blood circulation, maintaining or increasing range of motion, muscle re-education, prevention or retardation of disuse of:

 

 Neck
 Shoulder
 Mid Back
 Low Back
 Elbow
 Wrist
 Hip
 Knee
