The other names of electric shock massager are pulse massager and low-frequency therapy device.
This is an electrotherapy device, often used for physical rehabilitation or pain relief. When the low frequency is used for treatment, a weak current is applied to the human body at a low frequency. The electrode pads are used to directly stimulate the muscles and the nerve terminal sensory receptors in the muscles. The muscles and nerves are relaxed, and local blood circulation is promoted, which can reduce or relieve pain. Low-frequency therapy devices are currently commonly used in rehabilitation treatment in hospitals, bone hospitals, and acupuncture hospitals, and are one of the widely used electrical therapies.
The electric shock massager is attached to the skin from two pieces to several pieces of rubber pads and stimulates the muscle nerves through the microcurrent.
The pulse electric shock massager provides a massage device for the treatment of numbness and hemiplegia. It is combined with manual massage. The device uses intermittent switches and low-voltage capacitors to store low-voltage charges, and sets two discharge poles, one pole is connected to the massager's hand, and the other pole is connected. patient. During the massage, the hand is connected to the hemiplegic numbness part, the circuit forms a closed-loop, and the pulse electric shock current device for indirect electric shock can be used. The low-intensity pulse electric shock method can stimulate physiological function recovery. Sovereign item is a massage device for the treatment of numbness and hemiplegia. It is combined with manual massage. Its feature is that the device uses an intermittent switch and a low-voltage capacitor to store low-voltage charge, and sets up two discharge poles, one pole is connected to the massager's hand, and the other pole is connected. patient.
In the medical world, this method is called nerve electrical stimulation therapy.
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation therapy
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation therapy (NMES for short) is a method of applying a low-frequency pulse current to stimulate muscles to contract and restore their motor function.
The clinical application of NMES has a history of more than 100 years. In recent years, the application of NMES has significantly increased in the rehabilitation of neuromuscular skeletal diseases.
In 1982, the US FDA officially announced that NMES is safe and effective for the following three situations:
- 1. Treatment of disuse muscle atrophy;
- 2. Increase and maintain joint mobility (ROM);
- 3. Muscle relearning and facilitation.
- In addition, NMES also has physiological therapeutic effects:
- 4. Relieve muscle cramps;
- 5. Promote the recovery of denervated muscles;
- 6. Strong and healthy muscles;
- 7. Replace orthosis or limbs and organs that have lost function
