BioMedical Life Systems Micro Plus® Microcurrent Electrical Nerve Stimulator is a Two Channel analog device with 3 polarity settings, Positive, Negative, or BiPolar. The device has adjustable Pulse Rate 0.5-120Hz, Pulse Duration 1-3s, and Micro / Milliamp Control. The unit is powered by one 9-Volt battery. Unlike traditional TENS units, MicroCurrent (MENS) output is at a lower level, and therefore the stimulation is often not “felt” or perceived by the patient but works on a cellular level to repair cells by releasing ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) to transport energy within cells for metabolism.
Because of the healing properties of a Microcurrent device and the fact that the stimulation is not felt, Microcurrent has been used as a veterinary aid is healing our animal friends for many years.
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.

Microcurrent (often called MENS) uses extremely small pulsating currents of electricity. Microcurrent units produce electrical current just above the levels of the electrical exchanges that naturally occur at a cellular level in the body. This is why Microcurrent is readily accepted by the body’s cells when applied using electrodes.
Microcurrent therapy restores lost positive and negative electrons. These electrons are essential to every living cell. The body uses these minute electrical currents to accelerate its own healing agenda.
When cells are damaged they become electrically imbalanced. Electrical current naturally takes the path of least resistance through the body, which means the body’s electrical current will go around the injury rather than through the injured area and will take some time to heal damaged cells. However, by applying Microcurrent to the site of an injury, the Microamp current is able to pick up where the body fails. Through regular Microcurrent treatments, Microcurrent therapy is able to gradually close the gap and help heal the damaged area shortening recovery time.
Microcurrent stimulation uses Microamp which is a level of electricity that closely mimics the electrical level of the body’s cells and this application of Microcurrent helps to re-balance a cell’s electrical current. This returns damaged cells to a normal state and initiates cellular activity and increases ATP levels.
ATP (Adenosine triphosphate): ATP transports energy within cells for metabolism. This energy is integral to the function of nearly every cell in the body. Research has shown that Microcurrent therapy using Microamp can increase the level of ATP production by up to 500%. This is extremely important because injuries often lose ATP supplies when injured. Also, unlike other forms of electrotherapy, Microcurrent has a cumulative effect on ATP levels. Therefore, higher ATP levels can accelerate the body’s healing process.
Isn’t Microcurrent just like a TENS? TENS devices uses a larger current called “Milliamp” while Microcurrent devices are in the much lower current called “Microamp”. Microampere (uA) is one millionth of an amp, while a Milliamp (mA), which is one thousandth of an amp. Although you can feel a TENS sensation, chances are you’ll never feel a Microcurrent sensation. TENS devices blocks pain signals to the brain and is used for pain relief. Microcurrent devices also offer pain relief but also stimulate healing simultaneously on a cellular level.
