The established principles of electrotherapy are followed throughout our educational information. In general this means:

  • TENS functions are for pain relief and relaxation

  • EMS functions are for rehabilitation and muscle strengthening

  • ECS functions are for circulation and healing of damaged musculoskeletal tissue

These functions apply to men and women, most types of pain and most types of injuries.

In addition we offer information on 3 quite specific applications:

  • Labour

  • Menstruation

  • Incontinence
