What CurrentBody thinks
TENSCare uses Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) technology to boost your body's natural pain defences with the release of endorphins.
This natural release blocks your natural pain gateway, providing lasting, medicine-free pain relief lasting up to 4 hours after use.
The TENS One offers two different channels to offer a targeted treatment across different types of pain. Firstly, it can help Chronic pain, with back pain, arthritis, rheumatic pain, lumbago, hip pain, osteoarthritic pain in the knee and sciatica central pain. It can also help with muscoluskeletal pain such as fibromyalgia, falls sprains and accidents as well as acute facial pain, neck pain and migraines.
By using the belt clip, you can continue to treat with your device for a number of hours to prolong the pain relief. As the electrodes are made from a flexible material, you can also safely sit on or place pressure onto the electrodes during the treatment, although the sensation may change.

Choosing the right setting
The TENS One has three different modes:
N: Constant / Normal stimulation with adjustable parameters.
B: Burst stimulation with adjustable settings. This provides two stimulations per second with variable pulse widths and rates.
M: Stimulation with modulated pulse width and modulated frequency.
The user manual outlines the optimum mode to use depending on your concern. Best results are obtained when the device causes minor muscle contractions over sessions between 15 and 45 minutes in length.
Do not use this device if you have a cardiac pacemaker, implanted defibrillator, or other implanted metallic or electronic device. Such use could cause electric shock, burns, electrical interference or death.
If you are in the care of a physician, consult with your physician before using this device.
If you have had medical or physical treatment for your pain, consult with your physician before using this device.
If your pain does not improve, becomes more than mild, or continues for more than five days, stop using the device and consult with your physician.
Do not apply stimulation over the front of your neck because this could cause severe muscle spasms resulting in closure of your airway, difficulty in breathing or adverse effects on heart rhythm or blood pressure.
Do not apply stimulation across your chest because the introduction of electrical current into the chest may cause rhythm disturbances to your heart, which could be lethal.
Do not apply stimulation over open wounds or rashes, or over swollen red, infected, or inflamed areas or skin eruptions (e.g. phlebitis, thrombophlebitis, varicose veins).
