this different from TENS?
stands for Transcutaneous
Stimulation. Simply put, this
means that an
electric signal is applied to the nerves across the
surface of the skin. This definition is
VAGUE and does not describe the signal being delivered!
The ReBuilder is a unique, patented signal.
"normal TENS device" typically delivers a square wave signal
delivered at a high frequency to
the nerves, or to inhibit nerve function by
over-stimulating them. Although some TENS
devices are adjustable in terms of frequency or
amplitude, once set, the outgoing signal would
be the same for each user for the entire
duration of treatment.
A standard TENS machine
sends its signal from one electrode to another
placed in close proximity, usually 6-8" apart.
This creates an
effect; as it numbs the small treatment area.
While this may offer some degree of temporary,
localized pain relief, disrupting nerve function
is no solution and usually exacerbates (or
causes) numbness issues. These
devices are factory set to deliver their coarse
signals via 2x2 inch conductive electrodes and
are not adjustable to the different impedence
when different applications are used such as
conductive garments, finger bowls, or water
baths. Thus they can cause great harm. Repeated
use of a standard TENS can cause permanent
also sends electrical signals to the nerves
across the surface of the skin, and therefore by
FDA definition is also a TENS, but it is a very
specialized and vastly more precisely controlled
version of nerve stimulation, unlike anything
you have ever seen before. The ReBuilder's
intelligence incorporates 3 microprocessors to
control its sophisticated biofeedback circuitry
and at the same time, provides a muscle stimulus
component to its output. This allows the
ReBuilder to be used in a unique way and
provides an altogether-different patient
experience and treatment outcome. You see, it is
not just that you
stimulate the nerves, but more importantly,
how you stimulate
What does it do differently?
The ReBuilder's biofeedback
circuitry allows its signal to be sent from foot to foot
or finger tip tp finger tip, effectively stimulating the
entire nerve pathway from the tips of the toes or
fingers to the base of the spine on both legs (or hands)
simultaneously; a much greater area than standard TENS.
This same biofeedback mechanism continuously modulates
the outgoing waveform in accordance with your body's
response to the previous signal. This happens in
real-time, 7.83 times per second. Not only will each
user receive a custom-tailored impulse, but it will
change as your body favorably responds to the healing
impulses during the treatment time.
About 20% of the ReBuilder's signal
is EMS (Electrical Nerve Stimulator), which generates passive exercise of the skeletal muscles to
increase circulation by way of the body's venous blood
pump mechanism. This also helps strengthen
those muscles. A standard TENS machine does not
