What is the difference between ReBuilder and TENS devices?
TENS devices (Transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation), apply an electric signal on the nerves through the surface of the skin. Regularly, TENS devices generate square wave forms which are not recognizable by the nerves, these devices produce a high frequency that disables and inhibits nerves by overstimulating them.
There are certain TENS devices that allow the user to adjust the frequency and amplitude of the electric waves, once they have been con figured, the signal that will be produced will be the same for all users during treatment. A standard TENS device will send its signal from one electrode to another that is placed near to it (6 to 8” of separation). This creates an analgesic effect by numbing down the small area where the electricity is applied, offering this way a temporary relief, alleviating momentarily the affected part that is causing pain, but this is not a solution since it will usually worsen (or cause) numbness.
How does a TENS Device work?
TENS devices have factory settings that make them send out thick signals through 2×2 conductive electrodes, for this reason it is not possible to adjust them for different application methods such as conductive garments, etc. For this reason, they can cause great damage and continuous use of a standard TENS device can cause permanent numbness.
The FDA considers ReBuilder as a TENS device since it also sends out electric signals through the dermal surface, nevertheless, ReBuilder is a specialized nervous stimulation device and it is much more controlled. ReBuilder’s intelligent technology incorporates 3 microprocessors, which control its sophisticated biofeedback circuit while also providing muscle stimulation at the same time. This allows ReBuilder’s use to be unique, and also provides completely different treatment results and experience. The most important thing is not just that it stimulates the nerves but the way it does it.
What does Rebuilder do differently than a TENS Device?
ReBuilder allows its signal to go from one foot to the other (or from one hand to the other), through its biofeedback circuits, this way the signal stimulates the whole nervous pathway in an effective way from the tips of the fingers or toes all the way up to the base of the spine on both legs or arms. This way, ReBuilder’s action area is bigger than that of a standard TENS device. The biofeedback mechanism constantly modulates the shape of the outgoing waveform according to the user’s needs, using the last signal as reference. All this happens in real time, at a 7.83 times per second speed.
ReBuilder treatment does not only send out customized impulses, but they also change as the user’s body responds in a positive way to the healing impulses through the treatment.
How does this affect the result?
ReBuilder can, so to speak, talk to the nerves in a way that is not strange for them, being this way able to control pain and discomfort without impeding the nerve’s capability of sending an impulse. It does not cause or worsen the numbness to achieve its goal. The aforementioned is very important for a person who suffers from neuropathy since he or she can have balance or motion problems and this is very important at the moment the whole leg is receiving stimulation. Can you imagine numbing the whole leg on purpose and the implications this may have?
The frequency generated by ReBuilder has the capability of stimulating muscle activity, causing stable rhythmic contractions, which allow the blood to move softly towards the heart and helps the lymphatic system. This allows toxin elimination while at the same time it helps to distribute fresh blood rich in nutrients to the nerve endings. Since the signal originates on the furthest part (the foot), it takes full advantage of the natural compression effect. In time, this will help to strengthen stunted muscles.
ReBuilder does not cause side effects
Our body wants and has the capacity to heal itself, we just have to give it the tools so it can do it. User mobility will not get compromised since ReBuilder alleviates pain without causing numbness. Unlike drugs, there are no debilitating side effects. By being able to control the nerves in an electronic way instead of through the use of drugs, it will be possible to reduce or suspend their intake, this way eliminating the possible side effect which may appear when increasing their dosage. By increasing blood circulation to the limbs, our body’s natural healing process is nurtured. This can get even better with the right nutritional supplementation.
ReBuilder’s cost is higher since this is a real medical device that adapts to the user’s functional nerves and has security circuits. While the user sees an improvement, ReBuilder’s impulses adapt to its individuality. There is no other device that can compare to ReBuilder. This device has been made in the USA since 1987. The device has been improving continuously since its launch thanks to the scientific advances that have been made since then.
