ActivLife TENS machines offer you pain relief, soft tissue repair and muscle strengthening
They are tiny, drug-free, TGA listed, medical devices - very comfortable, very powerful, wearable and rechargeable
So, what is a TENS machine?
T.E.N.S. is short for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation.
It is a drug-free, physical therapy or electro therapy.
A TENS machine is a personal medical device which provides one or more of 3 different types of electro therapies. A quality unit will come with clear and helpful instructions for proper application and use.
With an ActivLife TENS machine, the therapies can be used between visits to the clinic - at home or on the move, for as long as needed. Treatment is extremely convenient, very cost-effective, and of significant therapeutic value.
Following medical diagnosis, TENS therapy can be administered by the patient, as part of a program for pain management, soft tissue repair, wound healing, muscle strengthening or functional rehabilitation.
If you have never tried a TENS machine before, ActivLife has a hire-to-buy option. We also hire our labour TENS machine, ActivNatal.
We manufacture in Victoria, Australia, and provide excellent customer support and advice; repairs and spare parts are readily available.

Placing the pads
There are three quite different types of TENS electro therapy
These 3 major mechanisms are:
- Sensory nerve stimulation
- Cell membrane stimulation
- Motor nerve stimulation
Each mechanism serves a different medical purpose, as follows:
Sensory nerve stimulation (TENS) - for fast and lasting pain relief and relaxation; mechanisms include pain gating and release of beta endorphins, encephalin and serotonin
Cell membrane stimulation (ECS) - opening cell walls to improve circulation and access to protein and nutrients and hasten soft tissue repair
Motor nerve stimulation (EMS) - used to prevent muscle atrophy and strengthen specific muscles after injury or surgery; also for pelvic floor muscles to prevent incontinence
Unless your condition has been diagnosed and you have been advised by a knowledgeable TENS consultant, you may be using your TENS machine incorrectly.
