Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) - The TENS 7000 Experience

  • Published on Apr 23, 2020
  • TENS - The abbreviation for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, a technique used to control chronic pain. Electrodes placed over the painful area deliver a mild electrical impulse to nearby nerve pathways, thereby easing pain.
    Today, I try my new TENS 7000 unit! P.S. - Don’t “turn it up to eleven”! (It really only goes to 9... but you don’t need a pulse amplitude more than 4!!!) Each isolated channel provides Pulse Amplitude adjustable from 0-100 mA at 500 ohm load. Pulse Rate adjustable from 2-150 Hz, 1 Hz/step. Pulse Width adjustable from 50 to 300 μS. There are 6 modes: Burst(B), Normal(N), Modulation(M), SD1, SD2 (Strength Duration).
    I found this amazing device for a mere $27 US Dollars on Amazon. I want to say thank you to those who have donated to my channel!
    If you’d like to help me get better gear for future experiments and filming, please donate to PayPal.me/ElectricUniverseEyes
    Thanks for watching my silly antics! 🤜🏼⚡️🤛🏻

    Yes sir, I had that serious back surgery in September and complete drop foot, it's horrible, then the other day the therapist gave myself a paper for this, she ordered hers from Amazon, very reasonable. I was waiting to see if anyone else had a recommendation for it, actually they used it on my back today, I asked about my foot she SAID I have no signal from my nerves to my foot that's why the drop foot, but I will try it anyway. I have been crippled by this thing but I still push myself to the exterm with a footbrace.my whole life I went and did everything I wanted, then I did way way to hard word and screwed up my whole self, anyway enough of that. Life goes on, PEACE HAPPINESS AND GOOD health FROM SOUTH CAROLINA

    Got mine today. I was having sciatic nerve pain and tingling in my foot. After using this on setting 1-2 for 45 mins my pain is completely gone and the tingling in my foot is also almost gone. I'll see what happens over the next few days.

      Hurray! You are getting iron to flow through your nerves again and repairing. Make sure to stretch that area daily and I’d recommend some muscle exercises to build strength in the affected area.
      I’ve been going to physical therapy for 3 months following a car accident. They used big machines in me for the first month, then once the pain was going away, had me start building muscles. They don’t use the big TENS on me anymore, but this little baby helps when I need it.

    i used similar device called a Denas several years ago to treat chronic pain from wounds. i learned that the device effects are limited by parasite infections, accidental or deliberate poisoning and irradiation.

    You can use it on your abdomen unless you are pregnant! Not on the heart, head, front of neck and some say directly on spine.

    Be wary if an unreputable ciropractor wants to order one for you. Ours charged our insurance $1400 for a $40 unit and we were enrolled in a new pad service that was hard to unenroll. Also expensive 'service'.

    Did you figure it out which settings are good for regular use for 10 minutes daily?
    Went to a physiotherapist for Achilles tendon pain and he used TENs Unit for the treatment and said the course will continue for 14 days. It is kinda expensive course so I'm buying my own Tens Device for home use.
    Don't know what settings they used for me but it was not painful at all, it was just a mild circulating vibration. Please help me identify those numbers if you can.

      @Electric Universe Eyes Thanks, I bought a Besmed Tens Unit, they also used this one in the hospital so I knew the settings they used there.
      They used Vibration Mode, the machine has 3 other modes as well.
      Thanks for the reply, modes specific tens units are easier than frequency based I think especially for home use.

      The numbers won’t help. Depending on the area you are treating, the nerves and muscles will respond differently. Some areas more sensitive than others! Place the electrodes at least 4 to 6 inches apart with the trouble area right in between. Start off very low and slow turn up the dial until you feel it tingle. If you turn it up to fast, you’ll know!
      I like to change the modulation to slowly pulse up and down, like a massage. It’s more of a trial an error every time I treat a different area.
      It’s like working out… if you do small amounts, it’s more effective than going hardcore and hurting yourself. Your body is electric, so your simply stimulating an area with additional electricity to get the blood flowing through a “poorly conductive” or damaged area.
      Make sure to stretch afterward and drink plenty of water! Good luck

    I've got peripheral neuropathy and I was wondering if this would help with the strange vibrating sensation I'm getting on the bottom of my feet. For a while i was using this 3 ball vibrator from Duane reede, it did help when you press the balls in deep but about 5 minutes later, the vibration under my feet started returning.

    • Electric Universe Eyes

      If you found the muscles/nerves responsible for the neuropathy, I think it wouldn’t hurt to try :)

    Isn't red supposed to go furthest from the heart?

    • Electric Universe Eyes
      Electric Universe Eyes  Year ago

      That is a good question. I'm not sure, I just know you are not supposed to put any electrodes or the path of the current anywhere near or through the heart area.

    Does it matter the positions of black wire and red wire?

    • Electric Universe Eyes
      Electric Universe Eyes  Year ago

      This has good reference for body placement - tens7000.com/blogs/blog/tens-unit-electrode-placement-guide

    • Electric Universe Eyes
      Electric Universe Eyes  Year ago +1

      In this case, the position of the negative vs positive electrode doesn’t matter. Just space them 4-6 inches apart, spanning the trouble area.

    I'm assuming by now, that you've learned to open up the panel, and change the intensity and mode settings? I started out just like you did...lol Oops, I should have watched more of the video. You figured it out. No, you left it at 300 all the way through. If you hit the Set Button, the 300 will flash, and you can bring it way down, and hit the Set Button again, and change the Width. That brings the intensity down.

      runs naked through the forest You are doing the right thing! Self learning is powerful! I’ll help with any questions you have :)
      Thanks for the Arkaroo Myth! Sounds similar to the Aboriginal Dreamtime Story! ru-clip.com/video/c0a9YcW8cnM/video.html

      @Electric Universe Eyes youtube is amazing if you go past the load of crap they keep suggesting.. :p i'm doing a bit the same path you are walking, i'm an artist, trying to make ends meet with experimental acrylics, inspired by EU and plasma behavior of course :D i'm looking forward to experimenting with homemade tesla coils and plasma tubes, but first learnign basics theoretical of electricity, don't want to kill myself with high voltage you know, i'm not in a hurry.. (my aim is mostly making plasma tubes with different gasses and pressures)
      put you're electronic music creations on youtube if you have recording of it.. would be awesome to have a listen, i play a few instruments, didgeridoo, mouthharp, native american flute, and some throat singing but haven't recorded anything, yet..
      yesterday i did some -inspired by you- electric geology searching when i came across an aboriginal myth, about the arkaroo, its describing a cosmic serpent gobbling up a big lake, when finished it creates mountains to the west then battles another creature of the sky which results in springs.. its crazy how perfect and detailed this story is, impressive anyone survived this to tell such a detailed story about it, and it's electric for sure (not that i need to convince you of that) go take a look i'd say arkaroo is a village name to in south australia...

      @runs naked through the forest I definitely don't consider myself an expert! Autodidactic is a term I like =) I've got a lot of different types of life experience that has helped... but mostly self learned. I dropped out of college, took A+/Network+ IT certifications, held all kinds of tech jobs, was into electronic music and instruments... learned all kinds of stuff from others by watching, reading, and trying! I never thought I'd be doing what I do with Electricity like I do today, but have always been fascinated by it. I changed out the wall sockets and switches in my bedroom as a teen and did it all with live wires. Definitely got bit a few times by 120V/15A and that woke me up every time. I remember watching a downed powerline fry a tree and thinking if it can do that... what can lighting do! I guess I've always been fascinated with "how life works" and started comparing things at a young age. Now that I'm in my 40's.... things click more and the more I read, the more it all comes together for me. Of course, RU-clip has helped me learn large amounts quickly! I like what we have at our finger tips in modern times! =-)

      MUAHAHA... and to be fair, that 3 kV was AC on my knuckle and I wasn't grounded. DC or being grounded to something might have been a worse story!?
