For go anywhere practicality combined with state-of-the art technology for pain relief, the latest model for the leading supplier of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) devices, The TENS+ Company is difficult to beat.

Fitting comfortably between the top of the range EV906 TENS machine and standard duel channel models in the TENS+ Company range, the Med-Fit EV806P features an even more robust design that’s ideal for people with active lifestyles.

Protective side strips enable the new TENS machine to be used in the most demanding environments, from the gym to great outdoors, but its tough exterior does mean it’s short on features.

The battery operated TENS machine has no less than 12 medically researched pre-set TENS programmes to provide relief from lower back pain, arthritis, neuralgia, period pain, sports injuries and sciatica.

It can also help people suffering from muscle pain, tennis elbow, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, carpel tunnel and muscle tension and works by delivering mild electrical pulses to the body that stimulate nerves, interrupting pain signals to the brain whilst stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.

Unlike basic TENS machines, however, the EV806 incorporates a duel channel system that is enables it to be used for neuromuscular stimulation.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is a widely accepted way of treating muscular injuries that works by sending electric pulses to the muscles needing treatment. The electrical pulses result in the passive exercise of the muscles and the treatment is widely used in hospitals and sports clinics.

Such treatment helps to prevent disuse atrophy, relax muscle spasms, increase blood circulation and aid muscle re-education and alongside the 12 TENS settings, the new model has a further 12 pre-set programmes for EMS.

The EV806P also comes supplied with four TENS electrodes, allowing both EMS and TENS treatment to be delivered where pain relief or muscle stimulation is needed.

For both TENS and EMS, the TENS+ Company recommends customers seek advice from a medical professional or undergo a pain assessment before deciding on an appropriate programme of treatment but they are both regarded to be safe and easily used by patients for self-treatment if the instructions supplied with the TENS machine are followed correctly.
