Micro-Current Therapy (M.E.N.S) is a process of supplying extremely low electrical current, similar to that found naturally in the body, to the affected pain area, where it can reach injured cells, potentially restoring and regenerating them to alleviate chronic pain.
No they are quite different. Micro Current Therapy (M.E.N.S) works at a level approximately 1000 times less than TENS, so it can't be felt by the user. Importantly, M.E.N.S works at the cellular level to promote cellular regeneration, reduce inflammation and therefore may assist in pain relief, rather than working as a pain blocker. With Painmaster, users typically wear the product for long sessions such as all day or all night for ongoing pain management and not short term pain relief. M.E.N.S - Microcurrent Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation
Electricity made inside the body cells, using low levels of electric currents at one-millionth of an Ampere –called a micro-current– provides power for the body.
Injured cells resist the body’s natural micro-current. This causes the natural micro-current to take the path of least resistance around the area of injury rather that through it. This prevents the supply of blood, oxygen and vital nutrients to the injured cells, causing pain and retarding the healing process.
This sends the body’s natural micro-current through the area of injury. Therefore, the effectiveness of micro-current therapy stems from its ability to closely mimic the human body’s natural current. It acts at the cellular level to potentially accelerating the healing process.
The Painmaster MCT technology is based on the ARNDT – SCHULTZ Law which states that: “Weak stimuli increases physiological activity and very strong stimuli inhibit or abolish activity.
The biologically sensitive stimulation effect of micro current picks up where the bodys own electrical current fails, as the human body must adhere to the natural law of electricity which is : “ electricity must take path of least resistance. Therefore, its electrical current is destined to move around an injury or defect, rather than through it. By normalizing cell activity, inflammation is reduced while collagen producing cells are increased. Healthy cell metabolism creates a healthy, pain free internal environment.
