For some pain patients an analog tens unit is preferred over a digital tens unit.  This video shows the difference between the two types of tens units and also how to use an analog tens unit.  Bob discusses the reasons patients have a preference for the analog type tens unit and how to use analog tens units of different manufacturers.  The basics of a tens unit are generally the same as this tens video points out.




    For many patients with impaired, or poor vision,  a digital tens unit is not functional since the patient can not see the small screen so the analog tens unit is preferred.  The analog tens unit involves only touching and turning the buttons versus pushing buttons and watching a screen to see how to change the different functions such as rate, width, power, modulation, burst modes etc.   The small tens unit screen is not easy to see, nor for many,  easy to understand the many symbols showing how to work the tens unit.  The analog tens unit has at most 5 buttons and one lever switch which once set may be never used again or,  if used, very infrequently.

  This is the most watched "how to" tens video on "how to use a tens unit", transcutaneous electronic nerve stimulator, on YouTube.  This tns video teaches chronic pain patients, how to actually use a tens unit including instructions on what the various control features are and why they are used.  In this specific it's the Digital 6000 Tens unit from MedFaxx however the tens video easily shows anyone how to use practically any generic tens unit. On internet search results this is the most viewed educatonal tens video.

       Pain machine, tens unit, tns machine, interferential therapy, whatever,  how does a tens unit work?  This short tens video  details the way a tens unit reduces or eliminates pain.  Pain is an impulse and whatever the mechanism is for moving the impulse from the area to the brain for perception is basically the same, no matter what the diagnosis is.

  An Educated Guess on How Interferential Therapy Provides Carryover Pain Relief

    Since the introduction of the Infrex Plus combination Tens/Interferential unit, January 2009,  we've been pleased to report that our experience has been patients can self treat as needed and go for longer and longer time periods, pain free.  Those results from interferential treatment mode are what is called "carryover" or "residual" pain relief.

 We think there are basically several biological reasons why we are seeing this occur -

  1. Ability to treat when pain present,  and as often as needed,  for as long as needed
  2. Prevention of reoccurrence of the "pain cycle" by self treatment options.

    This video shows how the AC adaptor, along with the ability to use batteries, makes the Infrex Plus combination interferential and tens unit perfect for reducing pain, accelerating injury, and for peaceful sleep.  This is very well adapted to use by the U.S. Military and the Department of Defense.
