Babycare TENS – Elle TENS is the ultimate digital obstetric TENS using the latest Opti-Max technology. This easy-to-use, TENS offers maximum pain relief during labour and beyond. All the settings are pre-set so there is no fuss in setting up. The Elle TENS features dual intensity controls for total flexibility over the mid and lower back electrodes. It has an integrated 'booster button' which at the onset of a contraction, is pressed for a surge of pain combating power. Plus Opti-Max technology gives an extra reserve of power when you really need it.
The Elle TENS is recommended by Midwives and health professionals. It is safe and easy to use, with NO side-effects for the mother or baby. This unit enables mothers to remain mobile, in control of their pain relief and can assist with a natural and drug-free labour. The Elle TENS is designed to be used as soon as labour begins i.e. at home as well as in hospital.
At the onset of labour, simply apply the 4 pads on the back as shown in the instructions and switch the TENS unit on. There will be a pleasant pulsing sensation. This will help to raise the level of pain relieving chemicals known as endorphins. When experiencing a contraction, press the boost button for the extra surge of power needed to combat the pain. When the contraction ends, press the boost button again it’s that simple
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) has successfully been used for many years by medical professionals and patients worldwide to treat pain.
TENS works by means of electrode pads, soothing pulses are transmitted across the skin to reduce pain sensation. TENS can also stimulate the body to increase its own natural pain relieving chemicals known as Endorphins.
TENS can relieve numerous pain conditions such as arthritis, neck pain, back pain, osteoporosis pain, sciatica, sprains and sports injuries, period pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraine, phantom limb pain, postoperative pain and many more.
