Raynaud's Disease Rehabilitation System
Your hands are one of the areas of the body that are impacted the most because of Raynaud's disease, with blood flow restricted to your extremities and individuals often stating that discomfort is most prominent in the hands. The Raynaud's Disease Rehabilitation System has been created to help sufferers of Raynaud's disease improve their condition. As the TENS machine features a multitude of TENS and EMS therapy programmes, the included gloves help stimulate your hands and fingers to reduce discomfort and improve your condition.
What's Included in the Raynaud's Disease System?
The Raynaud's Disease Rehabilitation System includes two products that work wonders in reducing the signs and symptoms of Raynaud's disease and can be used immediately. This includes the following:
Key Features and Benefits
- Relieves pain and discomfort associated with Raynaud's disease
- Designed to strengthen muscles and improve blood circulation
- Helps enhance capillary bed density to assist in the delivery of nutrients
- iGloves are constructed with a high silver content to improve contact with skin
- Wrist bands are supplied for an even current distribution and improved efficacy
- Helps improve mobility and reduce swelling to enhance ability to take part in daily activities
- Helps warm the hands, which in itself can work to improve Raynaud's disease
- Gloves and machine are both ready to use out of the box; no conductive gel required
How Does the Raynaud's Disease Rehabilitation System Work?
The Raynaud's Rehabilitation System is designed to help increase localised blood flow to the digits and extremities of the fingers while also helping to reduce discomfort caused by a lack of oxygenated blood in the hands. Simply dampen the gloves with a little water and plug the gloves directly into the TENS machine. Using newly developed 'Silver Stim' conductive fabric, the gloves allow the stimulation from the TENS unit to pass through the hand and improve blood flow and mobility while also relieving discomfort.
Who Can Use the Rehabilitation System?
The Sport TENS 2 Machine is a professional TENS and EMS machine used by therapists, sportspeople, and physiotherapists to deliver professional stimulation therapy. When combined with the iGloves, the Sports TENS 2 Machine can deliver a variety of hand treatments. Two programmes in particular are applicable to you if you suffer from Raynaud's disease:
- Massage Programme 8
- Muscle Tone Programme 7
Massage Programme 8
The Massage Programme 8 delivers a type of TENS therapy that contracts the muscles in the hands and fingers at roughly the same rate as your pulse. This improves the flow of blood from the fingers and forces the muscles to draw in fresh oxygenated blood. This programme encourages blood flow by contracting the muscles at a lower frequency.
Muscle Tone Programme 7
The Muscle Tone Programme 7 works the muscles in the hands and fingers much slower when compared to Massage Programme 8, but the contraction of the muscles continues for longer. This programme contracts the hand and finger muscles for four seconds and releases the fingers and hands for ten seconds using ultra low-frequency TENS therapy.
What is TENS?
TENS is used globally as a means of pain management and physiotherapy. A drug-free way of relieving pain and discomfort, the therapy encourages the body to release its own pain-killing chemicals by sending a small electric shock through the same nerve channels that are the cause of discomfort.
As the body registers this electric shock, chemicals are released that stop pain signals. TENS also encourages blood flow, which helps reduce uneven colouration on your fingers caused by Raynaud's disease.
