Oska Pulse is not a TENS Device. So what is a TENS?

'TENS'  is an acronym for Transcutaneous Electrical  Nerve Stimulation

A 'TENS' device is connected to the skin using two or more electrodes to which a low voltage, non-invasive electrical current is passed across the skin. This low risk nerve stimulation signal is intended to reduce pain, both acute and chronic by reducing the perception of pain. 

There is certainly a place for TENS particularly where instant relief is sought. However it must be understood that this machine is designed for temporary relief only and not for deep seated cell regeneration. It does not deal with the cause of pain, it simply designed to mask pain.
