BEST TENS PRODUCTS FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF

Portrait of happy senior woman and her husband at home

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation or TENS is a treatment for back pain using low voltage electric current to relieve pain.  This is usually done with a TENS unit which is a small battery operated unit with electrodes that pass an electric current from the TENS device to the skin resulting in relieving pain.

These products are now available at the online store of Independent Living Specialists Australia wide and subject to a customer’s health cover, they may be entitled to receive a 100% rebate from their health fund.

Benefits

The most important benefit is that it lacks side effects. Unlike oral painkillers which are known to have side effects such as gastritis etc, the TENS device is very safe without any side effects as it is applied externally and with proper treatment, the pain could be eliminated permanently.

LIFT AND RECLINER CHAIR BUYER GUIDE

289507-P6O1VM-594

Most often when a person gets older, the muscles get stiffened or joints begin to ache and it becomes difficult to get about your normal daily activities. Even a least possible chore will be too much for the body to take and at times the person may even lose mobility absolutely due to the immense pain. When this happens, it becomes necessary to look for ways to lessen stress on the body and limit activity. The best device to arrest this situation is the lift and recliner chair. This chair is equipped with mechanisms that lift it up and down enabling the user to sit down and get up easily

Mechanism

This recliner chair is operated electrically which lifts the chair up and tilts it forward controlled with a hand lever on the armrest. On some chairs, it also controls the reclining position of the chair. Some older models have a spring mechanism which is not recommended as sometimes the user could get thrown out of the chair. The electrically operated chair raises slowly, enabling the user to get on the feet safely.

ETON-lift-chair-2

Chair Extent

The size of the chair should be taken into consideration as it is a device that shifts user from sitting to a standing position. The chair’s best performance is based on the user’s height and weight. Checking the height of the chair is very important because if the chair is too tall, it could lift the user off the ground leading to a fall. Therefore, considering the size of the chair should be given prime importance.

ETON-lift-chair-4

Room and Décor

Considering the room where the lift chair is being placed is also important. Although these chairs are the same size as recliners, they take more space when activated. It should also blend with the room décor and many models have a choice of fabric and possibly be able to match the chair to the existing walls and furnishing.

Chair Feature

These chairs come in two-position, three-position, infinite-position, and zero-gravity.
These positions have different types of reclining features to suit the user’s need.

 

Two-position Lift Recliner Chair

This chair keeps the user upright even when reclining to about 45 degrees. It can really recline to any place between fully upright and 45-degree reclining position.

Portland Recliner Lift Chair
Three-Position Lift Recliner Chair

This position goes back further than 45-degrees to a sleeping position but not a flat position.

Infinite-Position Lift Recliner Chair

This position increase from the reclining to a flat, bed-like position for sleeping. It could further be set to any position between sitting fully upright and the flat position.

Zero-Gravity Lift Recliner Chair

Availability

A wide range of reliable branded lift recliner chairs to meet any requirement is available on rental or purchase options at www.ilsau.com.au and at all stores of Independent Living Specialists in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, and Adelaide.

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.
