MEMORY

Sufficient memory for a 30-day exercise program compromising of 3 uses a day. The memory records usage time and average intensity used. For training, this enables you to keep an exercise diary. For rehabilitation and pain relief, it offers an objective treatment record.

Other features:

  • Li-on Battery  – rechargeable, lightweight and compact for great mobility
  • External Charger included – including a unique locking lead connection and built-in cable tidy
  • Backlit LCD screen – for clearer visibility

Comfortable strength control – steadily increase the level of intensity to suit your needs

Sport Tens 2 uses TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) to relieve pain by:

1. Helping your body release natural painkillers (called endorphins)

2. Your TENS unit sends a tiny electric current into the skin through electrode pads which are usually placed near the source of the pain. This current stimulates the sensory nerves, which carry touch and temperature signals. These nerves go to the same connections in the spine as the nerves carrying pain. A strong signal in the sensory nerve releases chemicals in the spine which stop the pain signal travelling up the spine to the brain. This is known as the “Pain Gate”. 

In the Pain Gate mode TENS provides relief while it is switched on. The effect may start to wear off after 1-2 hours. You can stop for an hour and then try again. You can use TENS several times a day.

ENDORPHIN RELEASE

At low-frequency settings, TENS also causes a release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, which relaxes and relieves your pain.

In Endorphin Release mode, the relief builds up over as much as 40 minutes, and can last for up to 4 hours after the unit is turned off. Most people will achieve a reduction in pain. Some find that their pain goes away completely while they are using TENS. Some users only feel better after repeated use, and over a long time period

In the Pain Gate mode TENS provides relief while it is switched on. The effect may start to wear off after 1-2 hours. You can stop for an hour and then try again. You can use TENS several times a day.

General Pain Relief

You can use TENS as much, and as often, as you need. Even continuous treatment is fine, but electrodes should be repositioned regularly (at least every 12 hours) to allow the skin to be exposed to air. The Endorphin Release mode works better when the intensity is high enough to cause small muscle contractions. After about 20 minutes with muscle contractions, the muscle may begin to ache . If this happens you should stop the session. Best results with endorphin release are achieved at between 20 and 40 minutes.

Why use an Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) device?

EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) produces intensive and effective muscular contraction by passing electrical stimulation through electrode pads placed on the skin in order to react with specific nerves supplying a particular muscle group. These muscle contractions retrain the muscles, increase their effectiveness and improve their condition.

Benefits for Sports individuals:

  • Improve muscle endurance and performance
  • Provides muscle training to support the strengthening of certain muscles or muscle groups in order to achieve desired changes to body proportions
  • Sports training – warm-up, strength, speed, power, resistance, endurance and recovery
  • Rehabilitation in relation to sports injury
  • Help prevent muscle atrophy
  • Increasing local blood circulation

How can the Massage settings help?

Massage programmes produce a relaxing, resting effect. Muscle relaxation helps to:

  • Loosen up muscular tension
  • Improve muscular fatigue symptoms
  • Accelerate muscle regeneration after high muscular performance
