THE ULTIMATE HEALTH BRACELET
The Brod brand is synonymous for innovation and performance within the field of magnetic therapy. These qualities have now extended to the world's first multi therapy microcurrent bracelet.
Stylish and compact, the BrodTeNS bracelet uses moisture from the skin (electrolytes) to produce a bio-compatible microcurrent within a magnetic field.
Originally developed for use for alleviating chronic pain, the bracelets are proving effective in helping people suffering from a wide variety of complaints and medical conditions.

TeNS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) has been used successfully to block pain for over 50 years. Recent studies show microcurrents as delivered by microTeNS do more than just block pain. Measured in millionths of an amp they can turn off pain, operate vital organs, move muscles and aid healing.
Microcurrent therapy is now recognised and used extensively by pain clinics, professional therapists and sports trainers. They are more bio-compatible than currents produced by any other electrical stimulation device. Working at cellular level they are in the same range as the body's natural current.
At this level they are sub-sensory and do not provide any of the discomfort or tingling often associated with standard TeNS machines and devices.
Unlike other frequencies, microcurrents are capable of penetrating the cell walls to stimulate healing, reduce the feeling of pain, helping to maintain the correct pH balance by stabilising ions in the blood, and increase the oxygen content of the blood.
Microcurrents increase cellular energy. ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is often referred to by biologists as the 'currency of life' as every cell in our body is dependent on ATP for the transfer and storage of energy. Studies have shown that they can increase the production of ATP three to five fold, whereas currents above 5 milliamps can reduce the production.
Standard TeNS machines deliver pulsed electrical currents into the body which are believed to promote the production of pain blocking endorphins, but many users find the currents uncomfortable and the equipment impractical. The higher level of current delivered by these machines (often above 5 milliamps) can help mask the pain, but does not operate at a cellular level to assist healing.
At the core of the BrodTeNS technology is a high purity copper cathode and a zinc anode which use the plasma electrolytes released through the skin to create a safe, biologically powered galvanic microcurrent in the mid range of the body's natural current.
Worn on the wrist near the pulse, the microcurrent and magnetic field of the BrodTeNS stimulates the circulatory system.
About TDM Copper
About TDM Copper
There is an increasing use of TDM (often referred to as transdermal patches) to deliver vitamins, drugs and nutrients on a sustained basis due to its ability to bypass the usual gastrointestinal path. The BrodTeNS provides the body with one of the most essential minerals through TDM copper.
Copper is one of a relatively small group of metallic elements which are essential to human health and has been used as a medicine for thousands of years. It has also been used to assist healing through its anti-bacterial properties and for the purification of drinking water.
More recently, research has indicated that copper helps prevent inflammation in arthritis and similar diseases. Research is ongoing into anti-ulcer and anti-inflammatory medicines containing copper, its use in radiology and for treating convulsions and epilepsy.
Copper combines with certain proteins to produce enzymes that act as catalysts to help a number of body functions. Some help to provide the energy required for biochemical reactions including acting as a catalyst for the production of haemoglobin, the oxygen carrying blood component. Others are involved in the transformation of melanin for pigmentation of the skin and still others help to form cross-links in collagen and elastin to maintain and repair connective tissues.
The BrodTeNS uses a pure copper pad as part of its microcurrent generation and this also provides a supply of TDM copper to the body.
About Magnetic Therapy
About Magnetic Therapy
The BrodTeNS incorporates the latest technology from Nigel Broderick, inventor of the world’s most successful magnetic bracelet.
Although previous trials of magnetic bracelets in a number of countries had proved negative, the amazing benefits enjoyed by people wearing Nigel's revolutionary design led to the Arthritis Research Campaign charity commissioning an independent clinical trial to test his product under an approved medical protocol.
Analysis of the results showed that the patients wearing the bracelet he designed reported a greater reduction in their level of pain compared to other magnetic bracelets or placebos.
A full peer reviewed report was published in the British Medical Journal, in which it stated that "Whatever the mechanism, the benefit from the magnetic bracelets (Nigel's design) seems clinically useful" and continued to mention that the cost of the bracelet was a fraction of that spent on newer non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
The clinical trial represented a benchmark in magnetic therapy and as understanding continues to grow so has the number of trials, leading Nyjon K. Eccles, M.R.C.P., Ph.D., to state as the conclusion to his ‘A Critical Review of Randomized Controlled Trials of Static Magnets for Pain Relief’ that "The weight of evidence from published, well-conducted controlled trials suggests that static magnetic fields are able to induce analgesia."
Acupressure is a form of touch therapy that utilises the principles of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Acupressure is used to relieve a variety of symptoms and pain.
Stimulating the P6 acupressure point located on the underside of the wrist has been found to be particularly effective in combating nausea caused by travel (motion sickness), pregnancy (morning sickness), chemotherapy and post operative anaesthesia.
The BrodTeNS is designed to be worn above the P6 pressure point (about 3 fingers width up from the main crease of skin on the underside of the wrist) as it contains an acupressure stimulator.
