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.

What are the contraindications for 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.

Can I use a TENS machine alongside other pain relief methods?

Yes, you can use a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machine alongside other pain relief methods during labour. In fact, many individuals find that combining TENS with other pain management techniques enhances their overall comfort. Here's a more detailed response to the FAQ:

Using TENS Alongside Other Pain Relief Methods:

  1. Complementary Pain Relief: TENS is considered a complementary pain relief method, meaning it can be used in conjunction with other techniques to provide comprehensive pain management during labour
  2. Non-Invasive: TENS is non-invasive and does not interfere with other pain relief options, such as intravenous medications, epidurals, or natural pain management techniques like breathing exercises and relaxation
  3. Personalised Comfort: The ability to adjust the intensity and frequency of TENS allows you to personalise the level of electrical stimulation to your comfort, making it adaptable to your needs alongside other pain relief methods
  4. Mobility and Flexibility: TENS machines are portable and do not restrict movement. This allows you to remain mobile and utilise other comfort measures as needed during labour
  5. Timing: You can start and stop using the TENS machine at any point during labour, depending on your preferences and pain levels. It can be particularly helpful during early labour, active labour, and the transition phase
  6. Consultation: To create an effective pain relief strategy, consult with your healthcare provider or midwife. They can help you integrate TENS with other pain relief options and provide guidance on the best timing and combinations based on your specific situation

Some common pain relief methods that can be used alongside TENS include massage, hydrotherapy (water immersion), breathing techniques, positioning, and the support of a birthing partner or doula. The goal is to create a pain management plan that aligns with your preferences and provides the most comfort during labour

Can I use a TENS machine in a birthing pool?

Using a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machine in a birthing pool or during water immersion is generally not recommended. Here's the explanation for the FAQ:

Using a TENS Machine in a Birthing Pool or During Water Immersion:

TENS machines are electronic devices that use adhesive electrodes placed on the skin to deliver electrical impulses for pain relief. Water and electrical devices do not mix well, which is why using a TENS machine in a birthing pool or during water immersion is discouraged for several reasons:

Safety Concerns: The presence of water poses a risk of electrical shock when using electronic devices like TENS machines. Mixing water and electrical equipment can be hazardous for both the labouring person and their baby.

Equipment Damage: Submerging a TENS machine in water can lead to damage or malfunction, rendering it ineffective or unsafe for use afterward.

Loss of Adhesiveness: Water can affect the adhesive properties of the electrode pads, causing them to lose their stickiness and reduce their effectiveness.

While TENS machines are a valuable tool for pain relief during labour, they are best used outside of water environments. If you plan to use a birthing pool or water immersion during labour, it's advisable to remove the TENS machine before entering the water.

Always consult with your healthcare provider or midwife to discuss the safest and most appropriate pain relief methods, including the timing and use of TENS, in the context of your birth plan and the possibility of water immersion during labour

How long can I hire the TENS machine for?

You have the option to choose from hire durations of 4, 6, or 8 weeks.

If you're uncertain about which hire duration to select, consider the following guidelines:

For those who are currently between 0 and 36 weeks along in their pregnancy, it's advisable to opt for the 8-week hire. This choice provides the most flexibility, especially considering that around 81% of first-time parents go beyond their due date statistically.

If you find yourself between 37 and 38 weeks pregnant, the 6-week hire may be the most suitable choice.

For expectant parents at 39 weeks or beyond, the 4-week hire can be a practical option.

Additionally, if you're torn between two hire lengths or simply want more time, selecting the longest hire duration is often recommended. Keep in mind that the rental schedule is managed back-to-back with allowances for shipping times, ensuring that the machine remains available for your selected duration. There's no need to worry about shipping times affecting your hire period, as arrangements are made to provide you with the machine for the full chosen duration.

Please note that in case you require the machine for a longer period than initially hired, there may be an extension fee. Therefore, it's often more cost-effective to select the longer hire duration from the start. Your convenience and access to the TENS machine for your entire preferred timeframe are our top priorities

Can I claim my TENS on private health?

This will depend on your cover and it is important that you reach out to your health insurance provider to confirm if you are covered and if so, what for. Once you have confirmed your eligibility, you can go ahead and hire or buy your machine and you'll be sent an invoice which has all the info you need. Once you’ve got the receipt you can take it through the claims process with your health insurance provider. Our tax invoices include all the information any Australian health insurer will request
