We support healthcare professionals by optimizing pain management for patients, helping them make the right choices about using TENS to relieve their pain. We have named this approach functional electrotherapy.
TENS should be systematically considered in the decision-making process and in the development of care protocols to manage pain, particularly at home. Indeed, when properly applied, it is safe and can be very effective in relieving pain to limit the use of riskier options, such as opioids.

The electrical impulses transmitted by electrodes stimulate the sensory nerves, which reduces or closes the passage of pain signals to the brain. The sensation of pain is then temporarily reduced or even imperceptible.
TENS acts on the release mechanism of endorphins (the body's natural opiates), which foster well-being, quality sleep and pain relief throughout the body.
Our patients feel a greater sense of relief that is typically observed with the use of a TENS. What makes us different? Our approach –functional electrotherapy – relies on personalized service.
We take care of patients everywhere in Quebec. You can entrust us with all your patients for whom functional electrotherapy is advisable.
Whether it is for simple operating tips or to modify their device settings following a new diagnosis, a therapist is on duty in the office answering patients’ questions over the phone or by email.
Electrotherapy is medically recognized and the rental or purchase of a TENS device is covered by most insurers, the SAAQ, the CNESST, the IVAC and Veterans Affairs Canada
