BioTENS is a compact, Ultra-Low Frequency, Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulator (ULF-TENS). This ULF-TENS delivers a precisely regulated, bilaterally simultaneous, rhythmic stimulus to both the masticatory and the facial muscles.
Relaxation of muscles
When BioTENS is used to relax muscles prior to taking a clinical bite registration, it is possible to observe the effect of the ULF-TENS on the muscles by recording the electrical activity with an electromyograph (BioEMG II). The BioEMG II can show the levels of activity before and after the TENS pulsing. Many pain patients exhibit more muscle activity before pulsing and less activity after pulsing.
