More on DR-HO'S Triple Action Back Belt (TABB)

TENS Therapy: Uses safe, low-level pulses of electricity to stimulate the nervous system and “block” pain signals from registering in the brain. Additionally, TENS therapy helps the body release endorphins: a naturally-occurring chemical that helps the body relieve pain.

EMS Therapy: EMS is a form of electrical impulse therapy that’s used to stimulate muscles. EMS uses a stimulation cycle, causing muscles to contract and relax to decrease inflammation, promote muscle growth and encourage healing. What’s more, it can also help to improve local blood flow and local circulation.

Now, many pain relief products on the market use these two types of clinically-tested stimulation to temporarily relieve pain. However, while most competing TENS machines block pain at first, the pain will persist after a few minutes and with repeated use. These TENS machines offer a single, predictable mode of electrical stimulation. Eventually, the body learns to bypass this stimulation and continues to deliver pain signals to the brain.

In developing his proprietary AMP stimulation, Dr. Michael Ho wanted to get around this problem and provide more effective relief. AMP (Auto Modulating Pulse) delivers over 300 types of stimulation that prevent your nerves and muscles from adapting to the treatment. It’s the key difference between DR-HO’S TENS products and similar devices on the market.
