Neurodyn Portable TENS transcutaneous neuromuscular stimulator is a two-channel stimulator with independent controls for current therapies used in TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). Treatment should be administered only under the direct supervision of a health care professional.
The Tens Current
The biphasic symmetrical quadratic waveform of the TENS Current, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, has a short pulse duration and is capable of strongly stimulate the skin’s nerve fibers. The TENS is a classical current used at the pain treatment via sensorial stimulation and the stimulus is well tolerated by the patient, even during relatively elevated intensities.
This current is indicated for the symptomatic relief and chronical pain treatment, increase of the local blood circulation, symptomatic relief of acute post-traumatic pain and acute post-operative pain. It is used in orthopedic physiotherapy, traumatology, rheumatology and neurological and it also promotes analgesia and muscular strengthening. The technique consists in applying a smooth electrical stimulation through electrodes placed in body areas affected by the pain. It is widely used for rehabilitation in physiotherapy and orthopedy. It is portable, small and uses a 9V battery.

Actions and Benefits
- Small, light and works with battery, being widely used in household attendances.
- Programming via keyboard that generates digitalized information and offers data reliability.
- Crystal liquid frontal display making the product’s visualization and handling easier. It consumes less energy and gives a modern design to the equipment.
- Adjustable timer from 1 to 60 minutes promoting convenience to the professional that won’t need to control the total therapy time. At the end of the set time, the equipment will stop emitting the electric current automatically and it will emit a “bip” sound to indicate the end of the therapy.
- Non-invasive therapeutic effect, it does not cause dependency and it does not generate collateral effects, allowing the patient to maintain his routine.
- It has two channels with independent intensity adjustment.
- Parameters easy to program.
- It can be used both with power cable or with battery (not included).
- It promotes analgesia and muscular strengthening.

- Do not apply stimulation over the patient’s neck or brain.
- Do not apply stimulation across the patient’s chest.
- 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).
- Do not apply stimulation over, or in proximity to, cancerous lesions.
- Do not apply stimulation in the presence of electronic monitoring equipment (e.g., cardiac monitors, ECG alarms).
- Do not apply stimulation when the patient is in the bath or shower.
- Do not apply stimulation while the patient is sleeping.
- Do not apply stimulation while the patient is driving, operating machinery, or during any activity in which electrical stimulation can put the patient at risk of injury.
- Consult with the patient’s physician before using this device.
- Apply stimulation only to normal, intact, clean, healthy skin.
- Neurodyn Portable TENS should not be used while driving, operating machinery, or during any activity in which involuntary muscle contractions may put the user at undue risk of injury.
- Do not use this device on patients who have a cardiac pacemaker, implanted deﬁbrillator, or other implanted metallic or electronic device because this may cause electric shock, burns, electrical interference, or death.
- Do not use this device on patients whose pain syndromes are undiagnosed.
- Since the effects of stimulation of the brain are unknown, stimulation should not be applied across the head, and electrodes should not be placed on opposite sides of the head.
- The safety of electrical stimulation during pregnancy has not been established.
- Do not use this equipment on people with suspect of infectious transmissible diseases and/or diseases in which are recommended to suppress the heat or fever for medical purposes.
- Do not apply stimulation over the carotid sinus nerves.
- The stimulation must not be applied over the neck or mouth. Larynx and pharynx muscles spasms may occur and the contractions may promote the closure of the airways or cause respiratory distress.
- The stimulation must not be applied over the cardiac area, because it may promote cardiac arrhythmias.
FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)Do the accessories come with the equipment or is it necessary to buy them separately?
- The equipment comes with all the necessary accessories for the use of all the currents available in the Neurodyn Portable Tens.How long approximately does the equipment’s battery lasts?
- The battery ensures 24 hours of equipment’s continuous use.Does the equipment make any noise when the battery is low?
- Yes, whenever the battery is low the equipment will show the message “LB” on its display.Is it necessary to take off the equipment’s battery out whenever using it connected to power?
- No, it’s not necessary because as soon as the cable is connected to power, the equipment’s system will select the electrical mode.
- Using different accessories from the ones indicated and compatible with this device may increase the emissions or in the decrease of the equipment’s immunity.
- The professional must use gel to apply the currents offered by the equipment. One must always use neutral conductor gel, without air to better the current conduction.
- In case of obesity, the adipose tissue thickness isolates the motor nerve, that may cause a current‘s sensitivity variation.
- If there is a peripheral neuropathy, there is no answer to the short duration electrical stimulus.
- It may irritate the skin.
- The patient must get used to the stimulation on the skin progressively to know how much is tolerable.
