A GUIDE TO CHOOSING THE RIGHT TENS THERAPY UNIT

257449-P4GD34-856

There are many ways to ease multiple aches and pains and physiotherapy is one such mode that can help a person to lessen the pain instead of increasing the intake of prescribed medicines. Physiotherapy takes care of the physical part of the inflammation, soreness, and stiffness with exercise and massage. It also assists in healing the body by supporting the body to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals.

Independent Living Specialists has some unique physiotherapy devices available in all their stores Australia wide.

Introduction to TENS

TENS or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation therapy is a way to control pain without the intake of drugs. This machine executes millions of tiny electrical impulses to manage the pain.

Blocks pain message

It blocks the pain message from reaching the brain. On placing the TENS pads on the pain area, the electrical impulses race to the brain, dominating the pain impulses resulting in less pain.

Blood Circulation

It improves blood circulation which is the usual reason for various kinds of arthritis, aches, and pains.

Choosing the right device

Although this device helps to reduce the pain level, a certain device might suit your needs better than another depending on where the pain is being felt.

HOSPITAL BED BUYING GUIDE FOR CARE GIVERS

ils_hospitalbeds_aus

Having a hospital bed in your residence is a great investment if there is a person with limited mobility in the house. Special care should be taken to ensure you can rely on the bed’s reliable service for many years to come.

Selecting a Bed

Selecting a hospital bed for home use is not an easy choice to make. Therefore, family and medical support’s advice should be sought when taking this important decision. When determining which hospital bed is best suitable for home use, it is best to think and understand the needs of the patient, identify where the bed is being placed and pricing to meet the budget available for purchase.

I-Care-IC333-Ultra-Lo-Hospital-Bed

Electric Hospital Beds

A fully electric hospital bed has 3 features which include head up and down, foot up and down and a motor installed to activate bed move up and down instead of a lever to operate by hand. The main reason why patients prefer a fully electric hospital bed is due to this reason. The function of making the bed go up and down assists caregivers from bending over the patient. This is also referred to as an adjustable hospital bed due to its remote control functions. The semi-electric hospital bed has 2 features which include head up and down and foot up and down. The up and down motion is handled by a lever and this could sometimes be difficult for caregivers.

Hi-Lo Bed

Hi-Lo beds are manufactured to adjust high and low than normal beds. The higher rise function is easy for caregivers to transfer patients without bending too much. The high rise feature is for patients who are independent and the low function is perfect for getting in and out and also stand up easily from the bed.

Patient’s safety from falls

A low bed is ideal for those who are at risk of falling off the bed. Once the bed is adjusted to the lowest level, a fall will not have a serious impact on the patient.

Short-term use

Beds with springs are ideal for a person who needs a hospital bed on a short-term basis. However, it is advisable to check for metal slats or the solid deck. Invacare beds are good and economical for short-term use.

Patient’s Weight

A person’s weight plays an important role in the purchase of a hospital bed. A standard bed is suitable for anyone under 300 lbs. However, anyone weighing over 300lbs should purchase a heavy-duty bed as it is larger, comfortable, long lasting and cost effective too.

Mattress

Selecting a mattress is also important depending on the patient’s requirements and size of the bed.

Railings and Castors

Railing and castors also play an important role in a hospital bed. Railing could prevent the patient from falling off the bed and also help to hold and balance to a seating position and castors help to move the bed around but ensure central locking is also installed.
