Maternity Tens Machines

A TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machine is specifically designed to block pain signals to the brain via the stimulation and release of endorphins – the body’s natural painkillers. A TENS machine combats pain throughout your pregnancy affecting the way pain signals are sent and received to the brain. Research indicates that pain signals reach the brain via sensory nerves along the spinal cord and if those signals are blocked then the brain receives fewer signals from the source of the pain. Inhealth.ie offers a selection of TENS machines from the market leaders in the field from brands such as Meditens, Obi Tens, Elle Tens and Smart Tens, to support you through your pregnancy and as a major form of pain relief during labour. So how does a TENS machine work, and what are the benefits of using one?

How does a TENS machine work?

When you put your TENS machine on a high pulse rate it triggers your ‘pain gate’ to close. This blocks the nerve pathways to the brain. When you set your TENS machine on to a low pulse rate it stimulates the body into making its own pain relieving chemicals called ‘endorphins’. This acts as a natural alternative to morphine in blocking the body’s pain signals.

What are the benefits of TENS machines?

  • Totally safe and drug free
  • You are always in control
  • There are no side effects for the baby or yourself.
  • You can continue to be mobile whilst using your machine
  • If needed you can use in combination with pain relieving drugs such as pethadine, gas and air
  • It is extremely effective if used from the onset of labour. Once you have arrived at the correct strength of the current, the pain relieving effects can be felt immediately.

Can provide a safe natural pain relief for the body as your pregnancy progresses without any medicinal intervention
