Flexistim is a multitherapy unit suitable for both clinical and home use. This versatile device combines four different treatment modes in one to accelerate healing process and drug-free pain relief: TENS, EMS, IFT and Micro-Current Stimulation. Each of the modes has a different function, therefore making this unit truly flexible to meet the user’s demands, allowing you to experience personalised physiotherapy at home.
1. TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) relieves pain by helping the body to release natural painkillers called endorphins and by blocking pain signals to the brain. The TENS settings are used to provide symptomatic pain relief for chronic, acute or post-operative pain.
2. EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) is a widely recognised method of treatment for pain relief and muscle rehabilitation, which works by producing intensive muscular contraction in order to react with specific nerves supplying a particular muscle group. The EMS settings are used to provide a muscular training for localized regeneration and muscular hypertrophy.
3. IFT (Interferential Therapy) delivers continuous stimulation deep into the tissue providing relief for deep seated pain and can reduce swelling and inflammation which can often be the source of the pain. The IFT settings are indicated for symptomatic relief of chronic intractable pain.
4. Micro-Current Stimulation provides a gentler form of muscle stimulation to accelerate the body's own natural healing process. The MIC settings are used to provide symptomatic pain relief for chronic, acute or post-operative pain.
TENS treatment relieves pain by helping the body to release natural painkillers called endorphins and by blocking pain signals to the brain. EMS produces intense muscle contractions that react with specific nerves to provide pain relief and muscle rehabilitation, whereas IFT is meant to deliver continuous stimulation to the tissue to relieve deep seated pain. It can additionally reduce swelling and inflammation. Finally, Micro-Current stimulation is designed to accelerate body’s own healing process.
Overall, this multitherapy unit can cater to very different needs when it comes to therapy. Not only does it provide safe and drug-free pain relief, but also aid to natural healing process, doing as much as speeding them up. Electrical impulses are sent through self-adhesive electrode pads which are placed on the skin around the area of pain. The impulses work in different ways to combat aches, pains and strains to provide much needed relief when you need it most.
There is a plethora of conditions that could benefit from using Flexistim multitherapy device including arthritis, joint pain, sciatica, spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, muscle strains and injuries.
