What is TENS and EMS?
What is TENS?
TENS stands for “Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation”. It's a safe, non-invasive drug-free method of pain relief used by doctors for over 30 years. TENS works by blocking the pain signals from traveling to the brain through low voltage pulses to the skin. As a result, it produces endorphins, the body's feel-good chemical.
What is EMS?
EMS stands for “Electrical Muscle Stimulation”. It is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electrical impulses. EMS helps activate the muscles to assist in the increase of strength and endurance, and to speed up recovery. Once electrode pads are applied onto the skin, the electrical impulses interact with your motor nerves to send signals that cause your muscles to contract. This is the same natural action you feel when you work out your muscles.
