T.I.M.E MultiTherapist combines 4 different treatment modes to provide versatility and flexibility for users:
1. TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) relieves pain by helping the body to release natural painkillers called endorphins and by blocking pain signals to the brain.
2. EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) is a widely recognised method of treatment for pain relief and muscle rehabilitation, which works by producing intensive muscular contraction in order to react with specific nerves supplying a particular muscle group.
3. IFT (Interferential Therapy) delivers continuous stimulation deep into the tissue providing relief for deep seated pain – and can reduce swelling and inflammation which can often be the source of the pain.
4. Micro-Current Stimulation provides a gentler form of muscle stimulation to accelerate the body’s own natural healing process.
The T.I.M.E MultiTherapist unit will help any individual who experiences chronic pain such as back, shoulder or knee pain as well people suffering from common conditions such as Sciatica and Arthritis. The unit operates on mains power for long-term use, and also PP3 9V batteries when you are on the move (battery life with last for around 60 minutes when in Interferential mode).
