What is MPS (Micro Pulse Stimulation)?
The application of the electric Micro Pulse Stimulation (MPS) makes nerve or muscle activities are excised or suppressed. It provides the acupuncture-like deep sensory perception and much more power than a normal acupuncture using needles. This modality is invented by combining an oriental acupuncture technique with western electrotherapy. This device has been used clinically for more than ten years and widely accepted in many applications including pain relief.
Microcurrent Mechanism
The electric current travels from the positive (+) electrode towards the negative (-) electrode. When the massage ball is selected as the positive electrode, the current flow starts from the massage ball to a stimulated region, body, arm, and finally the main unit.
When the negative is selected, the current flows in the opposite direction. When the positive is selected, paralyzed nerves and muscles are activated by exciting the nerves. This is very effective for massaging the skin. On the other hand, when the negative is selected, the activities of the nerves are suppressed by analgesic and sedative effects. This is very effective in relieving pain.
Three kinds of Stimulating Electrodes
Instead of pad type electrodes of other stimulators, this unit provides three kinds of electrodes whose shapes are pointed ball-type, and flatten round. One of the three types can be selected depending on the treatment modes and the location of region to be stimulated.
