Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation

Neuromuscular stimulation devices, also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NEMS), and electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) are medical devices that transmit an electrical impulse which mimics the action of the central nervous system though electrodes adhered on the skin over selected muscle groups, causing the muscles to contract as a form of physical therapy or exercise. These devices are used for pain management as well as for prevention of muscle atrophy, and help strengthen muscles, maintain or gain range of motion, and temporarily reduce spasticity.
