Biomedical Life Systems Quadstar II Four Channel Multi Modality INF NMS TENS Sequential Muscle Stimulator is an electrotherapy system. An electrotherapy system is a device also known as a TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). The TENS unit systems are a device that is gaining more and more traction as years go by. Doctors and parents don't want to be using or prescribing painkillers to patients or children who may not actually need them for minimal pain and may do just as well by using a TENS system. It is made as a solution for muscle and nerve pain caused by contractions, spasms, strains, muscle tears and normal body aches. Other units, such as an EMS work a bit more differently than a TENS unit. Tens units work by massaging the muscles with the help of an electrode pad, a pad that attaches to your problem area and allows the current to run through.
There are 4 intensity settings to the TENS system so you can select the best option level for you. Select your preferred setting and start your session. You can pre-program your unit to be used in any environment such as the home and office. Keep the convenience of quickly relieving pain without the need for pharmaceuticals. Settings are pre-programmed in 9 different options of 20 minutes per program. It offers a feature of 3 different operating modes. These modes are constant, burst, and modulation. When starting a session, it is best to be in a calm and relaxed state. Laying down or taking a seat should be fine, this will give your muscles the best state for effectiveness for your electrotherapy session.
When using your unit. You may feel as if the system may be weakening if you have to keep increasing intensity with every use. These issues mostly will rely on the pads used for distribution. These pads can keep gathering dead skin, dirt, and grime which will affect the level of pulse being felt. You can rest assured knowing all you need to do is purchase new pads and you will be set to start a new, effective session.
