What is TENS?
TENS stands for Transcutaneous (through the skin) Electrical Nerve Stimulation and is a treatment that uses electrical currents to relieve pain and provide other therapeutic benefits.
A gentle electrical current is passed through electrodes which are attached to the skin near the site of pain or discomfort. The pulses send bio-electrical signals through the central nervous system, blocking pain receptors from receiving signals of pain in order to relieve pain. The brain then releases endorphins which are a 'feel good' chemical and act as a natural painkiller. The portability of the device makes it ideal if you require your own therapeutic treatment at home or work.

What makes the Hidow TENS/EMS devices so good?
Hidow is a wholesaler and online retailer for state of the art TENS/EMS portable machines. Older style TENS machines usually have a singular pulse. After a period of time, the brain registers the same stimulus therefore becoming less and less effective. What makes Hidow devices different to many other TENS machines is that they feature between 6 and 12 different therapy modes. The Hidow also has a number of unique random therapy cycles ensuring the brain does not become familiar with the stimulus; making Hidow devices an effective and long lasting treatment method compared to a number of other TENS devices available.
