Cefar Basic TENS
A pain relief stimulator meeting all the basic needs
Cefar Basic offers TENS programs for most of the common pain indications.
Cefar Basic has 3 preset treatment programs: TENS Conventional, TENS Burst and Modulated TENS (pulse width) programs.
The Cefar Basic has two channels, so you can ease pain in two places at once. The channels use the same stimulation program.
The Cefar Basic has an automatic keypad lock, which prevents the amplitude from being changed accidentally. This means that you can use the Cefar Basic during activity, wherever you are, without having to worry about the amplitude changing.
The Cefar Basic has a timer. If you choose to activate it, the stimulator switches off after 30 minutes of stimulation. If you do not activate the timer, the stimulation continues until you switch it off manually.
The Cefar Basic has a belt clip so you can attach the stimulator to a pocket or a necklace to hang around your neck.
The Cefar Basic runs on regular 1.5 V AA batteries, which you can buy in any store. You can also use rechargeable batteries.
The Cefar Basic has three preset programs. If you have received TENS treatment from a physiotherapist, follow the advice you received from them about choice of program and placement of electrodes.
To put it simply, the trick is to find the program that feels best to you; but these guidelines may help:
Program 1, Convetional TENS
High-frequency stimulation is the first choice for both acute and chronic pain. It blocks the pain so that it feels much milder, or can't be felt at all. Program 1 can be used for: neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, rheumatic pain, menstrual cramps, phantom pain, hip pain, osteoarthritis of the knee and to help heal wounds.
Program 2, Burst TENS
Low-frequency TENS treatment can alleviate pain by stimulating muscles to release the body's own morphine-like substances, endorphins. Place the electrodes on a muscle in the painful area so that a visible contraction occurs. Low-frequency stimulation is usually most effective for pains that radiate out into the arms and legs (projecting pain), deep muscle pain or when the effects of high-frequency TENS don't last long enough.
Program 3, Modulated pulse duration stimulation
Modulated pulse duration stimulation is a type of high-frequency stimulation. The length of each pulse varies continuously, giving an undulating sensation, which many people find very pleasant. Program 3 can be used for the same symptoms as program 1, or if you want to ease pain and massage the muscles, for example in the neck.
Program 1: Conventional TENS; Frequency 80Hz; Pulse Duration 180?s
Program 2: Burst TENS; Frequency 2Hz; Pulse Duration 180?s
Program 3: Modulated Pulse Duration Stimulation; Frequency 80Hz; Pulse Duration 70?s-180?s
