What is the difference between TENS and EMS? All Electronic Muscle Stimulators are technically TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulators), the main difference being which nerves are stimulated by the device. EMS machines stimulate the muscle motor nerves, while TENS devices are designed to stimulate sensory nerve endings. They all work by generating an electrical pulse which stimulates motor nerves through the skin causing the muscles, supplied by those nerves, to contract.

  • EMS Units
    Electronic Muscle Stimulation - E.M.S. Electric impulses are used to contract muscles. EMS has been used in the field of medicine as therapy for muscle atrophy, as well as in many other conditions. There has also been use in the field of personal care (where it is also known as electronic muscle toning) to help tone muscles, decrease body fat, as well as an adjunct to weight training. Federal Law (USA) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician. Doctor's Rx is required for purchase of TENS units.
  • TENS Units
    Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator - T.E.N.S. A TENS Units is a small electrical device that delivers electrical impulses across the skin. Transcutaneous (through the skin) electrical nerve stimulation sends an electrical current to specific nerves. The current may be delivered intermittently. The mild electrical current blocks pain signals to the brain and generates heat that serves to relieve stiffness, improve mobility, and relieve pain. The treatment is believed to stimulate the body's production of endorphins or natural pain killers. Federal Law (USA) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician. Doctor's Rx is required for purchase of TENS units.
