Acumed Medical Ltd - Acumed Medical in Toronto, Canada
Recognizing the need for a more effective treatment option for chronic pain, leading researchers spent nearly a decade developing a novel transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) unit that operates on direct current (DC), now provided by Acumed Medical.
Drawing on various techniques in acupuncture, modern neurology, microcurrent stimulation, and myofascial release, the company offers an integrative therapy specifically designed to address chronic pain. Known as MPS Therapy, this cutting-edge therapy provides concentrated microcurrent stimulation to specific points to achieve permanent pain relief in as few as two treatments. The electricity released during the treatment helps to relax muscles and increase circulation.
Acumed Medical harnessed this technology in a small handheld device that can be used by patients in the comfort of home. Owing to its unique design, the unit does not require pads or gels like traditional TENS units. To make the unit even easier to use, the company installed a sophisticated point finder that lights up and emits an audible tone when an acupuncture or trigger point is located.
The originator of this technology has written a comprehensive instructional manual to guide users through the treatment process. Titled Natural Health, this informational book shows where trigger and acupuncture points can be found and what regions of the body they affect. Every MPS Therapy device comes with these easy-to-use instructional materials, and practitioners may also attend a training course held by a highly qualified MPS Therapy instructor. Students in the Acumed Medical introductory course will learn the basic theories and physiology behind MPS technology and chronic pain management, as well as how to treat an array of common conditions.
In the advanced courses, Acumed Medical instructors cover treatment methods for more specific conditions such as orthopedic post-op recovery or pediatric autism.
