newsletter bannerHappy New and welcome to 2019! Arab Health will be our first exhibition of the year. TensCare will be showcasing our range at this year’s show between 28th -31st 2019 in  the Dubai World Trade Centre. If you’re attending, please feel free to come visit us at Stand H31, Hall 7 and/or book a meeting to learn more about our wide product range. Our team will be on delighted to answer any questions or interest you may have.

We will be exhibiting alongside a range of healthcare companies with our range of electrotherapy devices as more drug-free natural health care alternatives.

Our range includes:
TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. TENS stimulates your body’s own natural defences against pain, namely the release of endorphins. TENS is entirely safe and has been used successfully by thousands of pain sufferers.

EMS stands for Electrical Muscle Stimulation and has successfully been used in medical rehabilitation and training in competitive sports. EMS produces intensive and effective muscular contractions.

IFT stands for Interferential Therapy and is used for the symptomatic relief and management of chronic, post traumatic and post-surgical pain. In addition to providing pain relief by the same mechanism that TENS uses, IFT’s major role is to accelerate the inflammatory or healing rate.

The cold can be frosty and painful

Arthritis is used to describe pain, swelling, and stiffness in a joint or joints. Two common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a painful, degenerative joint disease that often involves the hips, knees, neck, lower back, or small joints of the hands. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that usually involves various joints in the fingers, thumbs, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees, feet, and ankles.

Around 10 million people in the UK are thought to have arthritis. It can affect people of all ages – even children and teenagers. Some forms of arthritis are more common in older people.

The symptoms of arthritis can vary from week to week, and even from day to day. Arthritis can make life tough by causing pain and making it harder to get about especially in cold weather. The cold and damp weather affects those living with arthritis as climate can create increased pain to joints whilst changes also occur to exercise routines.

These are some of the ways how TensCare can help you get arthritis pain relief despite the bone-chilling cold of winter weather. Our TENS units is a safe treatment, drug-free with no side effects. We would like to offer you 20% off our popular pain relief range, please see the products below.

It’s the season of giving and we hope this will help you or someone dearly to you.

The Big Five Reasons Why You Need to Adopt Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Any fitness programme should include Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) as an efficient way to passively workout and reduce stiffness. The best minds in sports performance all agree that EMS is a precious tool for those who combine physical training and optimal diet to achieve high levels of performance.

the big five
The Big Five Reasons why you should use EMS are because of the general increase in STRENGTH, POWER, ENDURANCE, AGILITY and SPEED

One – Strength

Research has proved that EMS works. Positive results support the use of EMS for strength enhancement and performance gains. Like any training tool, you will achieve optimal results when using the technology appropriately in terms of specific settings, timings, frequency, and overall volume of work. In cases where EMS did not produce performance gains in trained athletes, the researchers did not use the technology appropriately in conjunction with a well-organized training program. This is the key. Simply slapping on the pads and turning up the current is not enough. You must have clear goals and objectives for EMS, as well as a plan for how and when to use the technology.

Coaches maximize EMS benefits when they integrate the units with well-planned conventional training. Many research studies say the use of EMS alone, at best, provides the same benefit as voluntary training; that EMS is no better than regular training methods. Because EMS requires no central nervous system input, it will not fatigue the brain of an already over-taxed athlete. The combination of conventional training and EMS provides a significant advantage over either method alone because the cumulative effect of both methods provides a boosted training scenario with less energy cost to the athlete. This is a win-win proposition, especially if the stresses of life and training over-stimulate an athlete’s nervous system.

To maximize EMS benefits, use EMS in combination with conventional training, not instead of it.

Two – Power

EMS delivers a clean, complete muscle contraction.
Accumulated stress—both physical and psychological—can not only create excessive fatigue , but also interfere with users’ thought processes and autonomic signals within their brains and bodies. If we rely solely on voluntary strength training to prepare athletes, we are selling them short. Using an EMS, an athlete can contract a muscle group more completely and cleanly than by lifting weights. EMS bypasses the “noise” and works directly on the muscle to get a complete contraction. This is particularly important when targeting fast-twitch muscle fiber, which you can preferentially target with the correct stimulation frequency to achieve greater physical power.

While EMS will give athletes a more effective muscle contraction than conventional training, it shouldn’t be the exclusive means of strength training unless you’re dealing with a rehab or joint wear-and-tear scenario. Combine EMS with a conventional training program for the best results.

If you plan to use EMS as a sole means of eliciting strength gains in muscle, you can be certain you will get a more effective muscle contraction—albeit using an appropriate amount of current—than when training three times per week. However, we do not recommend that you rely exclusively on EMS for your strength training unless you are using it for rehabilitation purposes, or you are trying to reduce wear-and-tear on a specific joint structure. EMS works best when integrated with a conventional training program that requires a coordination component for more efficient transfer of the training adaptation. You will achieve the best results by supplementing conventional voluntary training with EMS sessions in proper proportions, supported by general conditioning and recovery.

Three – Endurance

Using EMS makes us more intelligent coaches and rehabilitation professionals. Not only does the use of EMS make us think more about the recruitment characteristics of skeletal muscle, but it also helps us to diagnose problems related to fatigue and injury in both the peripheral and central nervous systems. When an Olympic athlete suffered a significant knee injury, voluntary strength training was not restoring the atrophied quadriceps muscle. In essence, the athlete’s brain was not allowing the muscles to contribute fully to the movement of the knee joint in basic squatting and pulling motions. Because the message from brain to muscle was not getting through, inhibition was dominating the program.

When an Olympic athlete had a significant knee injury, voluntary strength training wasn’t successfully restoring the atrophied quadriceps muscle. EMS help contract the muscle, with the amount of current needed diminishing over time as the athlete can be able to reintegrate increasing amounts of conventional exercise back into his training sessions and improving his endurance.

A muscle injury damages the connections between mind and body and thus disrupts the brain. EMS helps to repair those connections and work through the inhibitions created by the brain’s self-imposed protective mechanisms.

EMS helps restore and enhance the connections between the brain and the body that are disrupted by fatigue and injury.

In cases of both fatigue and injury, the signals between the brain and the body are easily disrupted. EMS can not only restore, but also enhance those connections. Additionally, EMS can help assess the neuromuscular system by monitoring the amount of current required to contract the muscles in question. As the neuromuscular system improved through the rehabilitation process, less and less current was required to attain a full contraction. Monitoring the levels of intensity on the EMS unit can show the progress of muscle rehab (and the central nervous system) in injured states.

Four – Agility

EMS facilitates recovery. In tight schedules, when athletes might not have the time or energy to implement recovery and regeneration protocols, EMS is an extremely useful tool. Active recovery protocols that encourage circulatory mechanisms within the body help facilitate a more complete and expedient recovery.

When athletes have to travel, long waits in the airport—and long periods spent sitting on the airplane, bus, train, etc.—can lead to joint and muscle stiffness. EMS can help athletes stay supple and keep their bodies well-maintained when it comes to oxygen circulation, waste removal, and even getting a good night’s sleep.

EMS is effective in situations where athletes must travel. Long trips and waits in airports can be not only exhausting, but can also lead to the stiffening of muscles and joints. If athletes perform periodic recovery protocols with an EMS unit, they can keep their bodies supple and well-maintained, in terms of oxygen circulation and the removal of waste products. Athletes report feeling significantly better after using the EMS unit on their trip, and some sleep better when they arrive at their destination.

It is also important to note that athletes using maximal strength, power, and speed protocols with EMS have reported feeling  more recovered the next day in terms of muscle relaxation and joint mobility, feeling agile and light.

EMS has the ability to essentially reset muscle tone and provide athletes with not only the means to contract muscle more efficiently, but also to relax and de-contract muscle more effectively. This benefit is critical in explosive cyclical movements, such as sprinting, where the nervous system is required to contract and de-contract muscle in a very short amount of time, at very high speeds. EMS can help these athletes minimize muscle stiffness, cramping, and general peripheral fatigue.

Five – Speed

Current portable EMS devices are exceptionally convenient. The first EMS devices was a large device that fit in a medium-sized suitcase. EMS devices now are slightly bigger than a smartphone and can pack a pretty good punch. The portability of the devices, combined with easy-to-use adhesive electrodes, make them a strength training and recovery tool that you can carry in your pocket. As mentioned previously, the travel benefits of EMS are obvious. Having one in every athlete’s gym bag is an obvious solution for getting that extra edge, particularly if you don’t have an entourage of support staff to help you with recovery and massage.

The ease of transport is equivalent to the speed in the results if matched with a proper diet and proper physical training.

Conclusion

EMS can have a decisive impact in the recovery process after muscle trauma, rehabilitation after an accident or simply to increase our performance by helping to build the muscles, and therefore reduce the duration of the therapy or programme.
EMS can even allow people who suffered from a stroke to practise a physical activity in limbs which they completely lost control of to eventually regain muscle control and voluntary movements.

Arthritis Awareness Month

Arthritis Awareness Month

May is recarthritisognised each year as National Arthritis Awareness Month. Within the month of May there are many Arthritis awareness campaigns such as Arthritis Care Week on the 8th to the 14th and World Autoimmune Arthritis Day on the 20th.

Arthritis is actually a general term that covers over 200 different conditions with the two most common types being Rheumatoid/Autoimmune Arthritis and Osteoarthritis.

In the UK, around 10 million people have arthritis. It affects people of all ages, including children causing pain and inflammation in the joints.

Tenscare Pain Relief Units offer powerful relief when treating the pain associated with Arthritis. TENS sends soothing pulses via TENS electrodes through the skin and along the nerve fibres. The pulses suppress the arthritis pain signals to the brain and encourage the body to release natural painkillers (called endorphins), and block pain signals to the brain.

In addition to our Pain Relief units, we have the iGlove, iSock, iBelt and Kneestim that are used in conjunction with any TENS. They allow the stimulation of the TENS unit to pass throughout the hands, feet, back and knees to improve blood flow, mobility while providing pain relief throughout.

At TensCare we want to help you to feel better naturally. For more support on Arthritis see:
