New Delhi: OMRON Healthcare has launched an Electronic Nerve Stimulator (model HV-F013), equipped with OMRON’s Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) technology in India, clinically validated for home use, and providing drug-free pain relief.
As per the company, this small, portable and powerful, one-of-its-kind pain management device is perhaps the only one available in the organized market with a full suite of advanced and comprehensive features.
While a traditional massager has ergonomic challenges, a nerve stimulator could be conveniently used for all body parts – anterior and posterior. This makes it suitable to relieve almost all kinds of pain – nerve, muscle or joint pain (which are often chronic and take various forms, including inflammatory arthritis, back pain, foot pain, etc.) leading to better wellbeing and lesser dependence on painkillers. The contraption is suitable for people across all age groups.
The TENS technology involves sending small, low-voltage electrical impulses to a specific nerve via electrodes placed on the skin, with the aim of modifying the way neurones send signals and thus, preventing the pain signals from reaching the brain. The miniature device works effectively in three different ways:
Blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain
Stimulating the production of endorphins (which are natural painkillers)
Improving blood circulation
