The AuraWave is the first FDA-cleared Class II medical device available without a prescription for treating pain in the lower back and extremities with TENS technology. Simply place the AuraWave electrode pads over your area of pain, select the setting that"s right for you, and stop your hurt where it starts! The AuraWave is equipped with six manual modes that deliver specific treatment techniques and four automatic modes that have been specially calibrated, using a series of pre-programmed pulses, to optimally deliver therapeutic results ranging from soothing relaxation, to deep-tissue stimulation, to invigorating muscle-building. Much like pain, all people are different. Being able to not only choose from the 10 preset modes, but also from 10 levels of intensity, allows users to customize their pain treatment to their pain levels! For lower-back pain, the AuraWave comes equipped with an adjustable Back Relief Belt that holds the adhesive electrode pads firmly in place on either side of the lower spine in the ideal treatment position. The patent-pending AuraWave system delivers soothing, low-frequency pulses to fight pain in three unique ways: 1. Pain Signal Interference: AuraWave pulses, picked up by nerve receptors, travel along the nerve pathways and intercept pain signals before they reach the brain, minimizing or even eliminating your body"s sense of pain around the treatment area. 2. Endorphin Production: AuraWave pulses stimulate the body"s production of endorphins natural compounds found in the human body that can fight pain and generate a sense of well-being, enabling the natural chemistry of your body to help fight your pain.3. Muscle Fiber Stimulation: Stimulation by the AuraWave pulses relax tense muscle fibers by contracting and relaxing the muscles, creating something like a pump-effect in which blood flow is increased to the affected muscle area and inflammatory toxins are washed away.
