BioStim® M7 – Digital TENS unit

The Best in Class, BioStim® M7 TENS device is a digital lightweight and fully functional dual-channel TENS unit w/timer. This TENS unit has 7 programmable modes including Strength Duration for maximum relief.

This device has a Patient Lock System that, when activated prevents the patient from changing any of the set parameters set by the physician. When the Patient Lock Systems is turned off, a Patient Compliance Meter is displayed showing how long the device has been used. A timer allows the patient to use the device for a specified period of time.

This device comes with everything needed to manage your therapy session and includes our exclusive proprietary Touch Proof design and robust Touch Proof lead wires only available on BMLS (BioMedical Life Systems) devices.

What Is Strength Duration?

What Is Strength Duration?

With Strength Duration the amplitude, pulse rate, and pulse width are modulated in such a way as to stimulate 100% along the Maximum Sensory Threshold. Since stimulation along the maximum sensory threshold is constant, the effectiveness of using the Gate Control in pain relief is at an optimum. Additionally, Strength Duration stimulation’s release our natural morphine derivatives called “Endorphins” which further help manage pain.

 Gate Control – Interferes with the pain signal being sent to your brain so the pain is not perceived. This is achieved by setting a high “Constant” frequency. It’s recognized by a Buzzing Sensation.

  • Pulse Rate: 80-120 Hz
  • Pulse Width: 50-80 µS
  • Amplitude (intensity): Set to individual comfort level

Result:

  • Patient wears device for an extended period of time
  • Patient taking pain medication
  • Pain relief is immediate
  • Short-term pain relief

Endorphin Control – Induces your body to release its own pain fighting chemicals called “Endorphins”. This is achieved by setting a low “Burst” frequency. It’s recognized by a Pulsing or Thumping sensation.

  • Pulse Rate setting: 2–9 Hz
  • Pulse Width setting: 120-150 µS
  • Amplitude (intensity): Set to individual comfort level

Result:

  • Patient wears device for a shorter period of time
  • Patient NOT taking pain medication
  • Endorphins take effect in 30-45 minutes
  • Endorphins effect 6-10 hours

Strength Duration brings you the best pain management by combining Gate and Endorphin treatments in one!

But isn’t this the same as a “Modulation” mode?

NO, a TENS unit’s modulation mode will typically only modulate the Pulse Rate or Pulse Width but seldom both and Amplitude is never modulated. Modulation also does not release endorphins.
