ActiPatch® Compared to TENS Technology for Pain Relief

The ActiPatch® and TENS technology provide different clinical applications. ActiPatch® repairs and regenerates damaged cells by reducing pain and inflammation and accelerating blood flow. Whereas, TENS is only blocking pain signals and has no healing effect.

None

Portability & Ease of Use

ActiPatch® is lightweight, discreet and sensation free. This mobile pain relief technology can be easily integrated into your daily activity routine making it easy to move freely without any inconvenience

TENS units use contact electrodes with a bulky power supply

Safety

ActiPatch® is 100% safe to use and has no side effects

TENS may cause skin irritation with long term use

Duration of Long-Lasting Treatment

24/7 continuous treatment for 720 hours of controlled use

Typical treatment period 20-30 min period

Mechanism of Action

ActiPatch® repairs and regenerates damaged cells by reducing pain and inflammation and accelerating blood flow

TENS temporarily blocks pain signals by confusing nerve signals

 

The major difference between the two is that a TENS unit is a short term solution that “turns off” the pain signal but cannot perform the function of repairing damaged tissue like ActiPatch®.

ActiPatch® provides 720 hours or 90 (8-hour) treatments of long lasting, safe and effective pain relief. The ActiPatch® is 100% safe to use and has no side effects. Safe for diabetics, arthritics, bedridden and the elderly.
