The ReBuilder® is a highly specialized FDA cleared TENS/EMS unit used in clinics around the world. It is a neuroelectric therapy device, unlike the common TENS unit. The
ReBuilder® rebuilds the nerves by using a patented waveform which automatically adjusts to each patient’s specific needs. It calms the nerves and increases blood flow to affected areas, allowing the nerve cells to heal. If a person suffers from unexplained chronic pain or nerve pain symptoms, then the ReBuilder® is proven to be a safe and effective treatment option to alleviate these conditions.
TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electronic Nerve Stimulation. Simply put, TENS is an electric signal applied to the nerves via the skin surface. This signal is a square wave signal that is foreign to the nerves and delivered at a forceful high frequency and will incapacitate the nerves. The TENS signal also inhibits nerve function via overstimulation. Some TENS Units are adjustable in terms of deliverable frequency or amplitude. The outgoing signal remains the same during the entire treatment; the signal does not adjust itself according to what the body needs.
A standard TENS machine sends its signal from one electrode to another placed in close proximity, usually 6″-8″ apart. This creates an electric analgesic effect as it numbs the small treatment area. While this may offer some degree of temporary, localized pain relief, disrupting nerve function is not a solution and this type of signal can cause painful nerve issues or exacerbate existing conditions. TENS units are factory set to permanently deliver their coarse signals via 2″ x 2″ conductive electrodes. They are not adjustable to the different impedance when different application methods are used such as conductive garments; thus they can cause great harm. Repeated use of a standard TENS unit can cause permanent nerve damage.
The ReBuilder® is a highly specialized TENS unit with a built-in microprocessor that automatically measures several physiological functions of the nerves.
Beginning with the first healing signal, ReBuilder® uses a patented waveform that automatically adjusts itself to the individual patient’s needs. A common TENS unit uses a square waveform that delivers the same square waveform to everyone. The ReBuilder®, however, delivers a unique wave of current that forms itself to the exact pattern needed to balance out the deficit to the damaged nerves. It gently delivers its “compensatory” wave that frees the nerve from the inflammation by letting blood and vital minerals reach it, helping it heal. The ReBuilder® brings relief and, over time, the ReBuilder® can heal nerves completely. A TENS unit’s square waveform does deliver relief, but this square waveform can permanently damage nerves. The square waveform of a common TENS unit is like beating something into submission because it harshly hammers the nerves. ReBuilder® gently and carefully treats nerves.
The built-in microprocessor in each ReBuilder® device automatically measures several physiological functions of the nerves. This microprocessor automatically adjusts itself to the patients’ specific therapeutic needs, beginning with its first healing signal. When treating the lower extremities, this signal travels automatically from one foot, up one leg, across the nerve roots in the lower back, and down the other leg to the other foot. The ReBuilder® signal instantly produces a gentle buzzing feeling. These tingling impulses then reverse direction and go from one foot all the way back to the other. Additionally, these impulses treat all of the nerves from the lumbar area down to the feet.
