Chattanooga’s Cefar TENS with Acupuncture mode is our next generation of handheld TENS device, building on the established technology of the Primo Pro with added features to combine TENS and NMES treatments in one portable unit.
Intended for use by both healthcare professionals and patients, the Cefar® TENS combines TENS with NMES to bring pain relief and muscle rehabilitation from the clinic to the home. Patients can begin treatment with the device in a clinical environment under the supervision of a healthcare professional, before continuing their rehabilitation in the comfort of their own home. Simple and easy to use, with a range of compliance features, patients can be confident about taking their treatment into their own hands while their clinician can easily set parameters and monitor their progress.
For healthcare professionals this equals faster recovery times and shorter stays for patients, less pressure on resources, and less use of analgesics, therefore patients can benefit from reduced pain, increased mobility, and greater independence.
Altogether, Cefar TENS with Acupuncture mode is more than just a pain machine.
The Cefar TENS stimulator features 2 independent channels that can be managed separately. Users can select either the same program on both channels, or 2 different programs to be used simultaneously, allowing a combination of NMES and TENS in one treatment. This means patients can rehabilitate the affected area while reducing the associated pain, resulting in a more comfortable and effective treatment.
The device allows users to create up to 5 custom programs and to select specific parameters. This gives clinicians the ability to prescribe an initial treatment regime that patients can be confident in using, while still allowing room for future modification.
For best results when using the Cefar® TENS, we recommend the use of Chattanooga electrodes. Available in 2 different sizes, our electrodes provide excellent conductivity and ensure comfortable and effective treatment.
Clinicians can easily keep track of patients’ home treatments by monitoring how many hours of usage since the device was reset, along with total device usage.
The device also features a locking function to ensure the patient will only use the appropriate program.
When connected to acupuncture needles, Cefar® TENS can be used to deliver electroacupuncture (EA) treatment. As EA has been shown to be particularly effective in the reduction of pain, this provides a further, more beneficial option for patients to reduce their discomfort.
*Clinician use only. Acupuncture needles not supplied.
