What is a TENS machine?

A TENS machine, which stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, is a portable electronic device designed to provide pain relief by delivering mild electrical impulses to the body through electrode pads placed on the skin. Here are five key points that explain what a TENS machine is:

1. Non-Invasive Pain Relief: TENS machines offer a non-invasive and drug-free method of managing pain. They are commonly used for various types of pain, including muscle pain, joint pain, and pain associated with conditions like arthritis or injury.

2. Electrical Stimulation: The device operates by sending low-voltage electrical impulses to the surface of the skin. These electrical signals travel along nerve fibers and interfere with the transmission of pain signals to the brain, effectively reducing the perception of pain.

3. Versatile Applications: TENS machines can be used to address a wide range of pain conditions, making them versatile tools for pain management. They are often used in physical therapy, sports injury rehabilitation, and even during labour to provide pain relief.

4. Adjustable Settings: Most TENS machines feature adjustable settings, allowing users to control the intensity, frequency, and duration of the electrical impulses. This customization enables individuals to tailor the treatment to their specific pain levels and comfort preferences.

5. Portable and User-Friendly: TENS machines are compact and portable, making them easy to use at home or on the go. They typically come with adhesive electrode pads that can be placed on the skin over the painful area, and users can operate the device with user-friendly controls.

What are the contraindications of using a TENS machine?

There are certain contraindications and precautions to consider when using a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machine. While TENS is generally safe, it may not be suitable for everyone. Here are some contraindications and precautions:

Contraindications (Instances When TENS Should Not Be Used):

Pacemakers or Implanted Devices: Individuals with pacemakers or other implanted electronic devices should avoid using TENS machines, as the electrical impulses could potentially interfere with the functioning of these devices.

Epilepsy or Seizure Disorders: TENS may trigger seizures in individuals with epilepsy or a history of seizure disorders. It's crucial to consult with a healthcare provider before using TENS in such cases.

Pregnancy (Abdominal or Pelvic Application): TENS machines should not be used with electrode placement on the abdomen or pelvic region during pregnancy, especially in the first trimester, unless specifically recommended and supervised by a healthcare provider.

Precautions (Instances When TENS Use Requires Caution and Guidance):

Heart Conditions: Individuals with heart conditions, such as arrhythmias or heart disease, should use TENS under the guidance of a healthcare provider, as it may affect heart function.

Skin Irritation or Allergies: TENS electrodes may cause skin irritation or allergies in some individuals. It's essential to monitor the skin for any adverse reactions and discontinue use if skin issues arise.

Impaired Sensation or Cognitive Function: Individuals with impaired sensation or cognitive function may not be able to provide accurate feedback on the intensity of TENS, which could lead to overstimulation or discomfort. Careful monitoring and assistance may be required.

Metal Implants or Jewelery: Avoid placing TENS electrodes directly over metal implants or jewelery, as the electrical impulses may cause discomfort or interference.

Malignancies: TENS machines should not be used directly over or near known or suspected cancerous tumours.

Acute Infections or Open Wounds: TENS should not be applied to areas with acute infections, open wounds, or broken skin.

Hypersensitivity to Electrical Stimulation: Some individuals may have a hypersensitivity to electrical stimulation, and TENS may not be suitable for them.

It's crucial to consult with a healthcare provider or medical professional before using a TENS machine, especially if you have any underlying medical conditions, are pregnant, or are unsure about its suitability for your specific situation. They can provide personalised guidance, recommend appropriate electrode placements, and ensure your safety while using TENS for pain relief or therapy

How does a TENS machine work?

1. Electrical Impulses Block Pain Signals:

A TENS machine works by delivering gentle electrical impulses through electrode pads placed on the skin's surface. These impulses travel along nerve pathways and effectively block pain signals from reaching the brain.

2. Gate Control Theory:

The Gate Control Theory of pain suggests that the electrical impulses from the TENS machine "close the gate" to the brain, preventing pain messages from being transmitted. Instead, the brain receives the sensation of the electrical impulses, which are typically perceived as a tingling or buzzing sensation.

3. Endorphin Release:

TENS machines stimulate the body's natural painkillers, endorphins. When the electrical impulses activate sensory nerves, it triggers the release of endorphins, which are the body's feel-good hormones. These endorphins act as natural pain relief, helping to further alleviate discomfort.

4. Modulating Pain Perception:

The continuous use of a TENS machine during labour or for pain relief can modulate the perception of pain. It doesn't eliminate pain entirely but often makes it more manageable and less intense, allowing the user to cope better with discomfort.

5. Adjustable Settings for Personalized Relief:

TENS machines are highly customizable. Users can adjust the intensity, frequency, and duration of the electrical impulses to suit their comfort level and the specific type of pain they are experiencing. This flexibility ensures a personalised and effective pain relief experience.

In summary, a TENS machine works by using electrical impulses to interfere with the transmission of pain signals to the brain, triggering the release of natural painkillers, and modulating the perception of pain. It offers a non-invasive and drug-free approach to pain relief, which can be especially valuable during labour and various other pain-inducing conditions.

What is the boost button on the Elle TENS machines for?

The boost button on a TENS machine serves as a valuable feature for managing pain during labour. It is typically designed to provide temporary, additional relief when you experience particularly intense contractions or discomfort.

Here's how the boost button works:

  1. Temporary Intensity Increase: When you press the boost button, the TENS machine briefly increases the intensity of the electrical pulses it delivers to the electrodes placed on your skin. This intensified pulse can help to combat severe pain or discomfort during intense contractions
  2. Targeted Relief: The boost feature allows you to focus on specific moments when you need extra pain relief. It can be particularly helpful during the peak of contractions or when you encounter unexpected spikes in pain
  3. User Control: The boost button puts you in control of your pain management. You can activate it as needed, adjusting the intensity to a comfortable level during contractions and deactivating it when the pain subsides
  4. Temporary Nature: It's important to note that the boost function is temporary and is meant to provide short-term relief during particularly challenging moments. After a set duration, it typically returns to the previous intensity level you had selected

The boost button enhances your flexibility and control over pain relief during labour, ensuring that you can tailor the TENS machine's settings to your specific needs and comfort level throughout the birthing process. Always consult the provided instructions or your healthcare provider for guidance on how to use this feature effectively.

Can I hire extra electrode pads if needed?

No, extra electrode pads are not available for hire, as they are designed for single-use only. However, they are available for purchase if needed. Each TENS machine hire typically includes a set of four electrode pads, but if you require replacements or extras, you can purchase them separately. It's important to note that electrode pads are meant for single use due to hygiene and adhesive considerations, so having a supply of additional pads for purchase ensures you have what you need for a comfortable and effective labour experience.

What should I do if the electrode pads lose their stickiness?

If the electrode pads lose their stickiness during your TENS machine usage, you can take the following steps to address the issue:

  1. Clean Your Skin: Before reapplying the electrode pads, make sure the skin area where the pads will be placed is clean and dry. Use a gentle cleanser and water to remove any oils, lotions, or sweat
  2. Spritz with Water: Lightly spritz a small amount of water onto the gel side of the electrode pads. This can help rejuvenate the adhesive properties
  3. Allow to Air Dry: Let the electrode pads air dry for a few minutes before attempting to reapply them. Make sure they are completely dry to ensure proper adhesion
  4. Position Carefully: Place the electrode pads back onto the skin in the desired locations, ensuring they are aligned correctly with the TENS machine wires
  5. Adjust Intensity: Gradually increase the TENS machine's intensity to your desired level. Starting at a lower intensity and gradually increasing can help re-establish good contact between the pads and your skin
  6. Replace if necessary: If the above steps don't restore the stickiness and adhesion of the electrode pads, it may be time to replace them with fresh pads. Many TENS machine rental providers include extra pads in the rental package, or you can purchase replacements separately
  7. Proper Storage: Properly store unused electrode pads in their original packaging to maintain their adhesive properties for future use

Remember to follow the specific instructions provided with your TENS machine for the care and maintenance of electrode pads, as different brands or models may have variations in their recommendations. Proper skin preparation and care can help maximise the effectiveness and longevity of the electrode pads during your TENS machine usage.

Are there any side effects of using a TENS machine?

Using a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machine for pain relief during labour or other purposes is generally considered safe and low-risk. However, there are some considerations and potential side effects to be aware of:

  1. Skin Irritation: Some individuals may experience mild skin irritation or redness at the electrode pad placement sites. This is typically temporary and resolves after discontinuing TENS use
  2. Allergic Reactions: In rare cases, individuals may have an allergic reaction to the adhesive used on the electrode pads. If you notice any signs of an allergic reaction, such as itching, rash, or hives, discontinue use and consult with a healthcare professional
  3. Muscle Twitching: TENS machines stimulate nerves and muscles, which can sometimes cause involuntary muscle twitching or spasms. This is generally harmless and subsides when the TENS machine is turned off
  4. Tingling Sensation: Some users may experience a tingling or buzzing sensation at the electrode pad sites, which is a normal part of TENS therapy
  5. Electromagnetic Interference: TENS machines can interfere with electronic devices like pacemakers or defibrillators. If you have a medical implant, consult with your healthcare provider before using a TENS machine
  6. Not Suitable for Everyone: TENS is not suitable for individuals with certain medical conditions, such as epilepsy, heart conditions, or during the first trimester of pregnancy (unless under medical supervision). Always consult with a healthcare provider before using a TENS machine, especially during pregnancy
  7. Overuse: Using a TENS machine excessively or at high intensity levels for extended periods may lead to muscle fatigue or discomfort. Follow the recommended guidelines provided by your healthcare provider or the rental company

It's essential to use the TENS machine as directed, adhere to safety guidelines, and consult with your healthcare provider if you have any concerns or underlying medical conditions. If you experience severe or prolonged side effects, discontinue use and seek medical advice.

Additionally, when using a TENS machine during labour or pregnancy, consult with your healthcare provider or midwife to ensure that it is a suitable and safe option for your specific circumstances.

Are TENS machine noisy and will they disturb others during labour?

TENS machines are generally quiet and produce minimal noise, making them unlikely to disturb others during labour. TENS machines are designed to operate quietly. The electrical pulses they produce are typically not audible, and the machine itself emits minimal noise, often compared to a low hum or gentle buzzing. TENS machines are compact and portable devices. They are usually attached to your body with the help of electrode pads and wires. Since the machine remains close to you, any subtle noise it may produce is unlikely to be heard by others in the room.
