Compass Health Brands has revealed seven new TENS, EMS and Massage technology devices at CES 2017.
The pain relief devices provide Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) therapy.
Using electrodes, “the electrical impulses are sent through the skin to the nerves to modify pain perception,” according to AccuRelief. Nerve pathways are blocked by the pulses, preventing the brain from receiving pain signals and providing relief.
Prototypes are available for preview at CES.
Journalists attending can rent the AccuRelief™ Remote Control Wireless to relieve soreness from exploring the show. The system uses a RF/wireless compact electrical TENS unit to target the needed area. Two reusable gel pads are used around the sore area, releasing the electrical impulses with a Bi-phase square pulse wave form.
The device operates on a frequency of 5~125Hz and a pulse width of 130/250 μS.
Users can control electrical pulse intensity with the remote.
Users with pacemakers, implanted defibrillators other metal implants, or other life-supporting medical electronic devices are not advised to use this product as it can lead to electrical interference.
Another device is the AccuRelief™ Single Channel TENS Pain Relief System .
This FDA Cleared Class II Medical device also includes a lead wire, two electrode pads, and is controlled with an ACRL-2000 unit controller that includes an output socket, connecting the electrode pads to the controller. It operates on a frequency of 2Hz~150Hz and a pulse width of 50µs~300µs.
Six therapy programs are offered with 25 intensity levels
