  • Long lasting pain relief

  • Reduced joint stiffness, improved mobility

  • Release of muscle tension

  • Improved circulation

  • A natural feeling of well-being and relaxation

Between visits to the pain clinic

ActivBody is so small and convenient, you can use it daily, between visits to your therapist.

  • You may use ActivBody with other pain management techniques such as pharmaceuticals or meditation

  • ActivBody is free from drug-related side effects and does not interfere with medication

  • The therapy is not limited to a 30 minute session at a clinic but may be used for sustained lengths of time, everyday

  • We recommend use for as long as needed - you cannot overdose or become addicted

  • Because ActivBody uses modulated and mixed frequencies your nerve endings will not get used to the therapy

  • Our unit is small, discreet and weighs a tiny 25 gm; it can be carried in your pocket or fit in a custom designed lanyard or waist belt pouch

Within the limits of your medical condition, you are free to sit, walk, work, sleep and play while experiencing ActivBody pain relief. AND you can go on using it for years, even decades - as many of our customers have!

An ActivBody routine that suits you

Every human body is different. Everyone's experience of pain is different. In conjunction with medical advice, each individual should develop a routine that is best for them. We encourage you and your doctor to explore the best ActivBody timing and duration options for your needs. For example:

  • Daily for one or two hours

  • Twice daily for one or two hours

  • First thing in the morning - not only to reduce pain but also to reduce stiffness

  • Leave the unit on your body and turn on as needed

  • Leave the unit on a low intensity setting over night

  • Use to extend the time between taking medication

  • Use before exercise

  • Anticipate pain episodes and use as a preventative measure

Fast and long lasting pain relief - RELIEVE MODE

RELIEVE is the mode used most often by our customers. It is the optimum mix of the BLOCK and RELAX modes, offering both pain blocking and ß-endorphin release (See below).

To achieve this, the frequencies modulate from high to low on a constant rotation. We suggest you use the RELIEVE mode for a minimum of one hour - but it may be used for much longer if your pain is constant.

RELIEVE mode is the preferred TENS selection for many types of pain, as it provides:

  • Fast relief upon application

  • Pain relief for many hours after the control unit has been turned off

  • Circulation benefits

Electrodes are placed at the site of the pain or on the same dermatome; muscles must not twitch.

Fast pain relief - BLOCK MODE

For quick blocking of sharp pain, select the BLOCK mode and apply for 20 to 30 minutes.The frequency and waveform are designed for achieving maximum pain gating effect.

The pain relief benefit of BLOCK mode does not necessarily last for a long time after you turn off the control unit.

Electrodes are placed over sensory nerves at the site of pain; your muscle should not twitch.

Relaxation or circulation - RELAX MODE

  • Long lasting pain relief

  • Relaxation

  • Circulation

The RELAX mode is most suitable for long lasting pain relief, inducing relaxation and treating tension related headaches. It uses low frequencies and assists the body to release natural ß-endorphin for that feeling of well-being and pain modulation.

The RELAX mode should be applied for a minimum of one hour.

Also use this mode, on low intensity to:

  • Improve circulation

  • Assist with sleep preparation

Electrodes are placed at the site of pain, or on the shoulders, back, wrists, ankles or nape of the neck.
