Micro-Z II TENS

Micro-Z II Pulsed DC Micro-Current TENS

The Micro-Z range of electronic TENS stimulators are small, portable devices designed to give electrotherapeutic treatments with ease and in comfort. They are programmed to deliver two types of treatment – a 30 minute daytime treatment and an 8 hour overnight treatment that works most effectively, whilst the user sleeps.

3. Micro-Z II Level Two Kit

Unlike conventional TENS machines, which generate relatively large electric currents to swamp nerve signals and override pain, Micro-Z machines use lower, pulsed Direct Currents, which are more akin to the natural electric activities within the muscle and nerves of human body. This means that the treatments are highly effective, but the electrical current pulses are neither felt nor are significantly detectable by the recipient.

Used correctly, Micro-Z TENS machines can help promote healing of damaged tissues and allow the user to manage pain much more effectively.

The Micro-Z II is a single channel TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator) machine designed for the relief of pain associated with musculoskeletal problems. Micro-Z II is small, lightweight and simple to operate with two pre-programmed modes (30 minute or 8 hour mode), adjustable intensity and automatic switch off after completion of the selected treatment.

Micro-Z range of TENS are designed to be used with Electro- Mesh Silver Panel Electrodes and Intelligent Textile Wearable Garment Electrodes (gloves, socks, stockings), which cover a large surface area, enabling delivery of stimulation to the entire target area encompassed by the wearable electrodes.

Micro-Z II Pulsed DC Micro-Current TENS background

Micro-Z II System is different to other TENS machines, because it utilises pulsed Direct Current (DC) at more effective micro-Amp level than normally used Alternating Current (AC) utilised by standard TENS machines that works at the milli-Amp level.       

Micro-Z II System can be described as a pulsed Direct Current (DC) neuromuscular stimulator and TENS machine for pain relief that operates on micro-Amp level of the Direct Current. The micro-Amp level is similar to the natural electrical micro-currents generated by human bodies. It is this similarity to the naturally occurring body currents that makes the DC current more effective in pain relief and healing by comparison to standard TENS that just provide a mere distraction from the perception of pain for the duration of application.       

The Micro-Z II features 2 pre-set operational modes that produce pulsed DC waveform at the effective micro-Amp level. The DC micro-current is the key to the greater effectiveness of the Micro-Z II TENS, when compared to the standard AC current TENS.  DC micro-current travels one way loop, penetrating deeper towards the pain centre for faster and greater pain relief and enhanced tissue healing. The DC micro-current stimulates local blood flow in the treated area, triggering and stimulating body’s own natural defence mechanisms. When applied overnight during sleep, the DC stimulation maximises therapeutic effects by coupling with the natural healing phase that the body enters during sleep.           

Micro-Z II TENS produces immediate pain relief in common musculoskeletal ailments, such as muscular tension, back pain, shoulder pain, joint pain, strains and other aches and common discomforts. Micro-Z II TENS increases micro circulation, which contributes to greater pain relief and faster healing at source of the painful problem. 

The Micro-Z Ii TENS DC current therapy can be delivered through a variety of conductive electrodes and comfortable to wear conductive garments, enabling effective all day or night stimulation for pain relief and healing. 

Please note: The wearable Silver Thera Garments and Electro-Mesh Silver Panel Electrodes can be purchased as optional extras.   

Pulsed Direct Current Stimulation has a track record of circa 50 years with 109 published studies. The Pulsed DC Stimulation was initially designed for wound healing. The original Pulsed DC Stimulators were large and expensive and suitable only for use at clinics. The Micro-Z II is small, compact, discreet and easy to use. Micro-Z II has made it possible to apply the uniquely effective DC current for pain relief and healing at home.
