Acumed Medical Ltd. has leveraged extensive knowledge of acupuncture and related methodologies to pioneer MPS Therapy, a revolutionary treatment that utilizes trigger points to help decrease various types of pain. Acumed Medical created a small, handheld device that utilizes direct current microstimulation to improve circulation, increase endorphins, and ease muscle tension. Designing the unit with laypeople in mind, Acumed Medical made it simple to use right out of the box. Microstimulation is applied to particular trigger points to facilitate a rapid healing response. Unlike many other transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) units, Acumed Medical’s device was created to deliver direct current, resulting in a unique pain-reducing action that requires minimal milliamperage. The advanced unit lights up and emits a low noise when a trigger point is found, making in-home treatment hassle-free. In addition, Acumed Medical designed the unit to deliver a highly concentrated point of current that can be easily directed. Even with these substantive innovations from Acumed Medical, the unit is still classified as a TENS device, meaning many health plans will cover the full cost of the unit. Most patients require between 2 and 10 treatments to recognize complete and enduring pain relief. Thanks to the compact design from Acumed Medical, individuals can receive MPS Therapy safely in their homes. To assist in-home users of the product, a step-by-step treatment guide is included with each unit. Additionally, courses in MPS Therapy are held frequently throughout the country, conducted by a trained instructor. In the introductory course, students learn the basics of the technology, while the advanced courses cover specific areas of treatment.
