T.E.N.S is simply a means of stimulating your body's own natural defenses against pain. The unit produces a gentle stimulus through electrodes pad. This stimulus helps patients' body to produce natural pain relievers called endorphins, and block the pain signal in its patch to the brain. T.E.N.S unit is connected by wires to sticky pad electrodes that are placed on the skin in the area of the pain. This allows a small low intensity electric charge to be passed across the area.

Two effects on pain relief:

- By selectively stimulating certain "non-pain" nerve fibers it sends signals to the brain that block other nerve signals carrying pain messages. Only the non-pain messages get through to the brain.

- T.E.N.S helps to stimulate the production of endorphins, which are natural pain reliever produced by the body. The device is usually used for 15-20 minutes, several times a day, controlled by the user. Pain relief may start very rapidly and last for days.

EasyMed T.E.N.S Pain Relief unit has been designed to be user-friendly and highly effective.
