What is the difference between SCENAR and TENS technology?
The major distinguishing characteristic of SCENAR in comparison to TENS is that the SCENAR device “listens” to the body being treated, and adjusts its electrical impulses based upon what it “hears” from the body.
With TENS, the repetitive electrical wave forms are typically square, spiked or sine, and monophasic. A TENS machine has no biofeedback capability, and there is no detection of changed tissue impedance or any other signal coming from the body.
By contrast, each SCENAR waveform is unique. Each electrical impulse is crafted in response to the body’s messages, and the high amplitude and very short pulse width of the wave form prevent the body from “adapting” to the impulse in ways that hinder treatment.
TENS therapy is also largely static and non-specific: electrodes — usually gelled pads — are adhered to the skin in fixed locations. There are so many TENS knock-off units on the markets today one hardly knows which TENS device actually blocks pain in the body.
SCENAR pain therapy is dynamic: the device is moved over the affected area in order to intelligently find optimal treatment points based upon the biofeedback registered by the device. Thus if you are using the EX735Ag SCENAR and Modific Slider unit it will do all the work required, all you have to do is place the unit on or near the questionable area.
