TENS & EMS Neuromuscular Stimulator
The SwissSTIM® has been designed and manufactured to the highest standards in order to assist patients recovering from various medical issues that can benefit from the prescribed use of neuromuscular stimulation.
These medical issues include prevention of muscle atrophy, relaxation of muscle, spasms, improving blood circulation, muscle re-education, muscle strengthening and improving range of motion and pain control.
The new EMS/TENS neuromuscular stimulator SwissSTIM® is now available in two versions. SwissSTIM® PHYSIO and SwissSTIM® TRIGGER.
The SwissSTIM® TRIGGER version come with a remote switch allows the therapist to perform functional stimulation by controlling the duration of the contraction.
Therefore it is strongly recommanded to only use the external remote switch in the presence of a qualified medical practitioner.
The Trigger system consists of an external switch box which plugs into the SwissSTIM® trigger device.
An important capability of the SwissSTIM® is pain control. Pain, while unpleasant, is an important warning system that alerts us to an actual injury or disease.
Pain is described as either acute or chronic. Acute pain is typically limited in duration and often occurs due to workplace or recreational injuries. Chronic pain is long-lasting, persistent pain that may no longer serve a warning function and thus becomes a problem.
SwissSTIM® has the ability to help relieve both chronic and acute pain.
What is TENS?
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a non-invasive and drug-free method of controlling pain by the transmission of electrical stimulation to the body’s nerve or muscle fibers through the skin.
Pain relief or suppression is achieved by: Suppressing the transmission of pain in nerves (Gate Control Theory) and Increasing the discharge of the body’s endorphins, which reduces the sensitivity to pain in the central nervous system (Opiate Release Theory).
Principles of Electrical Stimulation
The principle of electrical muscle and nerve stimulation is to stimulate the peripheral nerve fibres of muscles through brief electrical impulses transmitted by electrodes placed on the skin.
These impulses, typically generated by electronic muscle stimulator devices, target both the motor nerve and effect a mechanical muscle response (EMS) and the sensitive nerve fibres, creating analgesic and endorphin effects (TENS).
There are 16 programs including one additional program for the external trigger (TRIGGER version only)
