English: Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (acronym TENS) is the use of low intensity current produced by a device to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. TENS by definition covers the complete range of transcutaneously applied currents used for nerve excitation although the term is often used with a more restrictive intent, namely to describe the kind of pulses produced by portable stimulators used to treat pain. The unit is usually connected to the skin using two or more electrodes. A typical battery-operated TENS unit is able to modulate pulse width, frequency and intensity. Generally TENS is applied at high frequency (>50 Hz) or low frequency (<10 Hz) dependent on the type of pain and duration of treatment. Units are also used for sexual purposes.
