Electrotherapy Equipment and Supplies

Brite provides a broad range of electrotherapy devices and supplies. Electrotherapy is used for the relaxation of muscle spasms, prevention and retardation of disuse atrophy, increase of local blood circulation, muscle rehabilitation and re-education electrical muscle stimulation, maintaining and increasing range of motion, management of chronic and intractable pain, post-traumatic acute pain, post surgical acute pain, immediate post-surgical stimulation of muscles to prevent venous thrombosis, wound healing and drug delivery.


TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator)


TENS is a type of electrotherapy equipment that works by sending small electrical pulses through the skin via ten unit electrodes to the underlying peripheral nerves. TENS works in two ways. First, "high frequency" continuous, mild, electrical activity blocks the pain signal traveling to the brain. Brain cells perceive pain. If the pain signal does not get through to the brain, the pain is not "felt." The second way is by stimulating the body's own natural pain-control mechanism. "Low frequency" or short bursts of mild electrical activity cause the body to release its own pain easers called beta endorphins.


MENS (Microcurrent)


Where TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is used for the relief of pain, Microcurrent, because of its close proximity to our own body's current, is thought to work on a more cellular level.

It has been found that ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) in the cell helps promote protein synthesis and healing. The lack of ATP due to trauma of the tissue results in the decreased production of sodium and an increase in metabolic wastes, which is perceived as pain. The use of Microcurrent at an injured area helps realign the body's electrical current, increase the production of ATP, resulting in increased healing and recovery, as well as blocking the pain that is perceived.


INF (Interferential)


Interferential Therapy is used in the treatment of circulatory disorders, range of motion, edema and muscle spasms. Post-op patients will use the device 3 times a day for 15 minutes over a period of 14 - 30 days.

Interferential Therapy works by sending small electrical impulses through the skin. These impulses stimulate underlying nerves and tissue reducing pain, edema and inflammation. This, in return, reduces or eliminates the need for most pain-related drugs.


NMS (Neuromuscular Stimulators)


NeuroMuscular Stimulation is a type of electro-stimulation unit known by many names in the industry such as e-stim, N.M.E.S., NMS, electrical muscle stimulator, etc. all of these words correspond to a unit providing electro stimulation used for the prevention or retardation of muscle spasm; muscle reeducation; maintaining and increasing the range of motion; increasing local blood circulation or as an immediate post-surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis.

The NeuroMuscular Stimulator (e-stim, N.M.E.S., NMS,) is a form of electro-stimulation that concerns both nerves and muscles. Therefore the stimulators in this electro-stimulation category are used to stimulate the underlying nerves to elicit a muscle contraction.


Combination Units


As the name implies, a Combination Unit is one, which combines multiple stimulation modalities in a single device.  Modalities such as TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator), NMES (Neuro Muscular Electrical Stimulator), INF (Interferential Stimulator), and HVPS (High Volt Pulsed Stimulator), can be used individually, or set up in a sequence to provide a total treatment regimen.




Electrotherapy devices use electrodes to deliver electrical current. Our Pre-Wired Electrodes offer extreme flexibility. Designed to last two weeks or more, the adhesive is durable while being non-irritating. The pre-wired socket system permits easy lead wire connections when the electrode is applied to those "hard to reach" areas such as the upper and lower back.


Conductive Garments


A clever alternative to electrodes, conductive garments are clothing that contain conductive wires to deliver even stimulation to an entire area. Covers large areas or multiple sites. Great for patients with skin conditions
