NeuroTrac Digital TENS Unit, 2 Channel
The NeuroTrac TENS machine is an advanced digital dual channel TENS unit suitable for all types of pain relief. The NeuroTrac TENS has 12 pre-set programmes and 2 customisable programmes. It features 3 different treatment modes (conventional TENS or normal mode, burst mode and modulation mode). All these features help to provide the user with complete flexibility in their pain relief treatment. What do I get? The NeuroTrac TENS unit comes with a set of four electrode pads, the lead wires to connect the electrode pads to the unit, a 9v battery and a handy storage NeuroTrac bag. As well as the Operators Manual, containing all the information needed about the unit and programmes, also included is the Electrode Placement Manual, guiding you through which electrode pad shapes and sizes to use, and where to place them to achieve the best results.
The NeuroTrac TENS's 12 clinically based pre-set programmes are designed to help with all types of pain relief. Conventional TENS or Normal Mode enables the user to select any rate between 2 Hz - 200 Hz and a pulse width between 50 µS - 300 µS. This is the most frequently used of the three modes. The most common selection is 80 Hz with a 200 µS pulse width. Burst Mode is comparable to the low rate TENS technique except that each low rate pulse is substituted for by a short BURST of 9 pulses (200 µS) at 150 Hz. It is a combination of conventional and low rate TENS. The burst mode is often referred to as acupuncture like TENS. Modulation Mode is designed to help prevent nerve accommodation that some patient's experience. It is achieved by continuously cycling the pulse width and rate.
For some people chronic pain can have a huge impact on their state of mind and physical ability. They may find they do not wish to rely on pain relief medications, which can have side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, headaches and nausea. Not only this, but pain relief medications tend to block pain signals around the entire body, which isn't necessarily a good thing. When we feel pain it is the body's process of informing us that something is wrong. To feel pain is important, without this feeling abnormal conditions may go undetected, creating damage or injury to critical parts of the body. It is far safer to be able to inhibit pain in just the one area of the body that is most afflicted. TENS pain relief allows you to do this. It works by delivering mild electronic stimulation to the nerve fibres via surface skin electrodes. The TENS stimulation acts as a 'Gate Control' to block pain transmission, stopping pain signals from being sent to the brain. It only works on the nerves in the area that requires treatment, and there are no side effects. NeuroTrac is one of the leading UK manufacturers of TENS and EMS devices, producing high quality, user-friendly medical devices that are safe and simple to use at home. The NeuroTrac TENS has an 80% efficacy rate, and is suitable for any type of muscular or joint pain.
Dual channel: individually isolated circuits. Amplitude: 0 - 80 mA into 500 Ohm load; indication only. Actual mA will tend to be less than indicated due to electrode impedance: at 1000 Ohms load (Electrodes in poor condition) the maximum will be limited to 70 mA, at 1500 Ohms load the maximum will be limited to 65 mA. Type: Constant Current, maximum output voltage 180 Volts +10 / -30 Volts. Waveform: Asymmetrical, rectangular bi-phasic with zero DC current. Selectable pulse width: 50mS -300mS [2% accuracy]. Pulse Rate selection: in the continuous mode 2 Hz - 200 Hz [2% accuracy]. Mode: Continuous, Burst or Modulated. Burst mode: Bursts of 9 pulses [200 mS] at 150 Hz, repeating twice every second. Modulation mode: 6-second cycle of concurrent width modulation and pulse repetition rate modulation. Width starting at 200 mS and decreasing exponentially to 100 mS in three seconds and then returning back to 200 mS in the next three seconds. Rate starting at 100 Hz, decreasing exponentially to 65 Hz and then returning to 100 Hz. Time duration of the treatment selectable: 1 minute to 12 hours. Low Battery Indicator: If the battery goes below 6.9 volts +/- 0.2 volts the battery symbol will flash on/off once every second. If the battery voltage is below 6.6 (+/- 0.2) volts the unit will not turn on. Open Electrode Detect: If an open circuit is detected at the output of channel A or B the output current will be reset at zero.
