I have a TENS device. Is QuadraBloc the same as TENS?
Transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation devices, TENS devices, stimulate low threshold peripheral nerves that transmit position and touch signals. When stimulated these nerves are thought to work as a counter stimulus to pain. You have seen the same mechanism of action, in reflex action, when you hit your funny bone at the elbow. What do we all do reflexively? We rub the skin over the elbow vigorously.
QuadraBloc devices block the pain signal at the cell membrane level. In doing so, the pain signal is not propagated and sent to the brain where perceived as pain. This mechanism of action has been validated using sophisticated cellular physiologic studies, animal studies, and university sponsored clinical trials.
Consider this, we know more about how the QuadraBloc works to block pain than we know how Tylenol works.
