The innoSTIM-TE is a digital TENS / EMS combo device for electrical stimulation at home. 10 different TENS programs can be used to reduce chronical or acute pain. The programs are tailored to different indications and the application on different parts of the body. During a TENS treatment, the electrical stimulation of certain nerve pathways blocks the transmission of pain to the brain and stimulates the release of endorphins. In this way, the patient's pain perception can be reduced practically without side effects.
The 9 EMS programs support the muscle training an help to maintain mobility – even in case of immobilization, for example after surgery. During an EMS treatment, low-frequency electrical impulses stimulate peripheral nerves, which triggers muscle contractions. The muscles are trained through the program-specific sequence of relaxation and relaxation.
In addition, the innoSTIM-TE has 3 massage programs: pleasant electrical signals are perceived as pleasant vibrations or gentle tapping.
Do not place electrodes on following areas:
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimualtion (TENS) is a recognised scientific method which is used successfully for pain management. Sensitive nerves are stimulated by electrical impulses via electrodes placed on the skin, which ultimately has a positive effect on the patient's perception of pain – without the need for any additional medication. TENS utilizes two different mechanisms: The "Gate Control Theorie" describes a method overriding the pain signal. Short impulses combined with a high impulse frequency stimulate the Aβ nerve fibres, so that the pain signal is overwritten. The "Burst Theorie" uses a combination of long impulse duration with low impulse frequencies, in order to promote the release of endorphines, which blocks the pain perception.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) can support patients in muscle training. Via electrodes placed on the skin the nerve fibres are stimulated with low frequency electrical signals, which ultimately causes the muscles to contract. The muscle stimulated this way starts to work even in the absence of any voluntary contraction once the appropriate current intensity is provided. The sequences of contraction and relaxation equal an intensive isometric muscle training. In addition to maintaining and promoting muscle, tendon and joint structure development, this has a very positive influence on the coordination of movement and increasing blood supply to the skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscles, tendons and joints. EMS offers patients the possibility to maintain muscle strenth and mobility after surgery or injury. Especially incontinence therapy is a promising application field: By specifially training sphincter and pelvic floor muscsles the incontinence can be treated without additional medication.
