Tennant Biomodulator® technology is a state-of-the-art microcurrent, neuromodulation stimulator powered by proprietary software and high-performance microchip processors, incased in easy-to-use, hand-held devices. The Tennant Biomodulator® technology offers a uniquely different clinical application for the non-pharmaceutical, effective symptomatic relief and management of chronic, intractable pain and the adjunctive treatment of post-surgical and post-traumatic pain.
How Does It Work?
Tennant Biomodulator® devices actually seek decreased impedance on skin by "sticking" (dramatic increase in friction) to acupuncture or electron deficient sump points when gliding the instrument over the skin. The area may comprise injured or diseased tissue or may be associated with an organ or corresponding structure with that anatomical segment. Electrons supplied by a Tennant Biomodulator® device placed at the correct location on the skin are channeled by the integrated system of connective tissue within the body to the lowest electron deficiency. The normal energetic equilibrium between various tissues and organs is restored, and the redox potential of the body is recharged.
Why Does It Work?
The Tennant Biomodulator® modifies the pathological signal so the brain becomes aware of it, inputting electrical impulses, to increase voltage, that are never the same and cannot be adapted to, forcing the body to respond by making new cells. Central nervous system involvement is reintroduced by neuropeptides that alter the regulatory pathway, breaking the repetitive pathological cycle and allowing cellular and organ recovery. The result is pain disappears because of healing, not because the brain doesn't know the area no longer hurts.
Consider that a patient’s thumb reads normally as -25 millivolts. Suddenly the patient’s thumb is hit with a hammer. The injured thumb will immediately go to -50 millivolts so it can make new cells to replace those injured by the hammer. It is red, swollen, hot, and has pulsing pain because the dilated vessels are dumping new nutrients into the area to make new cells. As it finishes replacing the damaged cells, the thumb will return to being pink and have normal voltage.
However, if the thumb area exhausted its voltage before all the new cells could be made or if it couldn’t reach -50 millivolts in the first place, the patient now has chronic pain that hurts all the time. It will never heal with medications or surgery because it cannot make new cells.
Measuring it with the Tennant Biomodulator® and then using the Biomodulator to insert electrons with the proper voltage and frequency allows the body to raise the voltage to -50 millivolts. It makes new cells and is thus healed and the pain is permanently gone.
Tennant Biomodulator® Technology vs. Conventional TENS
A Tennant Biomodulator® device communicates with the neuro-endocrine system through direct touch to the skin, sending a signal through the epidermis and dermis into underlying fascia planes and is transmitted through connective tissue to the C and A nerve fibers. Tennant Biomodulator® devices generate electrical impulses that are similar to neurological impulses in the C nerve fibers. These fibers are embedded in tissues and make up 85 percent of all nerves found in the body and to "fast" pain blocking A fibers.
Conventional TENS technology works based on the "pain gate" theory. That is, they apply sufficient electrical charge to the "A" and "B" fibers of the nervous system to saturate them and thereby blocking the communication of pain to the brain. Often, when the stimulation is removed, the pain returns in a short period of time, thus only "masking the pain". An oscilloscope trace of a conventional TENS signal is shown above. Note the signals are monophasic-square wave in nature with voltage from 0 to 30volts. Their duty cycle is approximately 50%.
TENS was developed for the control of chronic and post-operative pain by saturating subcutaneous nerve receptors with low-intensity, electrical stimulation in order to affect a specific dermatome or anatomical segment where the main source of pain resides. TENS delivers constant voltage with fluctuating current and resistance/impedance whereas Tennant Biomodulator® devices deliver a driving signal based upon the change in microcurrent and impedance over the active pulse interval. Unlike TENS, which relies on constant and externally generated signaling principles, the Tennant Biomodulator® is based upon the development of a cybernetic feedback loop. Tennant Biomodulator® signaling is an electrical control system, external to the body, which interfaces directly with the skin and transcutaneously communicates with the internal peripheral nervous system for the purpose of therapeutic intervention.
