Direct TENS™ is a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) uses electrical pulses that are delivered through the skin to the cutaneous (outer) and afferent (deeper) nerves to alleviate pain. Contrary to medication and cream used on the skin, there are no known side effects resulting from TENS therapy.

Via electrodes attached to the skin, Direct TENS™ sends electrical pulses to the nerves. This will block the pain impulses. Four electrodes – two for each channel – can be connected to the device. Pain relief is most efficient during stimulation, but the effect can last after the treatment. Additionally, the TENS treatment increases the blood circulation. You can use Direct TENS™ at any time for pain relief and muscle relaxation. Each therapy session should last 30 minutes minimum and can be continued for several hours.
