OMRON Healthcare has launched an Electronic Nerve Stimulator (model HV-F013), equipped with OMRON’s Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) technology in India, clinically validated for home use, and providing drug-free pain relief. Small, portable and powerful, it is one-of-its-kind pain management device and perhaps the only one available in the organised market with a full suite of advanced and comprehensive features.
While a traditional massager has ergonomic challenges, a nerve stimulator could be conveniently used for all body parts – anterior and posterior. This makes it suitable to relieve almost all kinds of pain – nerve, muscle or joint pain (which are often chronic and take various forms, including inflammatory arthritis, back pain, foot pain, etc.) leading to better wellbeing and lesser dependence on painkillers. The contraption is suitable for people across all age groups.
The TENS technology involves sending small, low-voltage electrical impulses to a specific nerve via electrodes placed on the skin, with the aim of modifying the way neurones send signals and thus, preventing the pain signals from reaching the brain. The miniature device works effectively in three different ways:
- Blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain
- Stimulating the production of endorphins (which are natural painkillers)
- Improving blood circulation
Priced at INR 3990, the device comes with five modes which allow users to experience a soothing and kneading massage. In addition, the device also features five levels of intensity, which let the user pick the range of power they need for appropriate pain relief.
Speaking on the device’s launch, Mr. Rohit Saini, Head Marketing & Operations, Omron Healthcare India, said, “Today, along with the disease induced pains, lifestyle habits and workout-injuries are also emerging as common reasons for muscular and nerve-related pain. Pain management requires early intervention to prevent aggravation. With this in view, we bring to India the OMRON Electronic Nerve Stimulator – a product that is backed by decades of OMRON’s research and expertise in home health monitoring. The launch is also a reflection of our commitment to India’s preventive healthcare sector, focused on improving quality of life.”
