TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. These simple machines have been used successfully for many years by pregnant women to enhance their natural coping skills during labour. TENS machines are a safe, effective, and drug-free method of pain relief.
How does the TENS machine work?
At the onset of labour, the four pads (included) are applied to the labouring woman's back. She will feel a pulsating, tingling sensation. This raises the levels of her endorphins, her body's own pain relieving chemicals. During contractions, the BOOST button provides a constant surge of power.
- Dual channel
- Pre-set modes for ease of use
- Belt clip/neck cord for mobility
- Large LCD screen
- Opti-max technology for extra pulse power for use during the final stages of labour
