Conductive plastic film application: TENS Electrodes

TENS Elec­trodes stands for Tran­scu­ta­neous Elec­tri­cal Nerve Stim­u­la­tion.

In the health­care sec­tor, TENS Elec­trodes are used for med­ical and phys­io­ther­a­py treat­ment.

So, the nerve stim­u­la­tion help pre­vent pain sig­nals from reach­ing the brain. Also, they help stim­u­late your body to pro­duce high­er lev­els of its own nat­ur­al painkillers, called endor­phins.

How TENS Electrodes works

TENS machines work by send­ing these puls­es through elec­tric cur­rent. Across the TENS elec­trodes and sur­face of the skin and along the nerves.

There­fore, to be able to car­ry this elec­tric cur­rent from the machine to the skin, a lay­er of elec­tri­cal­ly con­duc­tive film is nec­es­sary, usu­al­ly in the mid­dle of the gel lay­ers, because the gel lay­ers are specif­i­cal­ly designed to have adher­ence with con­duc­tive film, as you can see in the image below.

CAPLINQ presents the LINQSTAT XVCF Series of Conductive films

For TENS elec­trodes appli­ca­tion, CAPLINQ offers the LINQSTAT XVCF Series.

This high­ly con­duc­tive film has a high­er car­bon load­ing that gives us a low­er resis­tance and as such, a high­er con­duc­tiv­i­ty. Fur­ther­more, CAPLINQ LINQSTATXVCF Series con­duc­tive films are thin, light­weight and rel­a­tive­ly inert.

Due to its low-resis­tiv­i­ty and its resis­tance to a range of chem­i­cals and alco­hols, LINQSTAT XVCF series films are a per­fect choice for TENS elec­trodes appli­ca­tion.

CAPLINQ is a spe­cial­ty plas­tics sup­pli­er offer­ing a range of con­duc­tive mate­ri­als includ­ing our broad range of elec­tri­cal­ly con­duc­tive plas­tics and anti­sta­t­ic tapes and films. If you have any ques­tions, please don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact us to find out more about using our prod­ucts for TENS elec­trodes appli­ca­tions.
