The Ova Ultra-Compact TENS Machine
Drug-free treatment of period pain and associated conditions
From mild discomfort to intense pain, Ova is a natural, safe way to take control and make a difference to your life.
Periods may be a fact of life, but with Ova, the pain isn't. With no side-effects and no risk of addiction or over-use, Ova is the ideal way to tackle monthly cramps or even more regular uterine-based pain.
Even women suffering from fibroids and endometriosis can benefit from this drug-free pain relief and reduce the use of pills, invasive medicines and treatments - or even stop taking them altogether.
The Ova's technology is an electrotherapy known as TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), which tackles pain in two ways. Firstly, it encourages the release of endorphins, the body's own pain-relieving chemicals. Secondly, it targets the pain gate, which effectively stops the pain signals from reaching the brain. This clinically-researched, medically recommended treatment has no known side-effects and is used by doctors and physiotherapists worldwide.
TENS works by sending harmless electrical pulses from a small unit to electrode pads which are placed on the skin. The pads for Ova are extra large, to target the specific bands of nerves which are linked to the uterus. They are connected to wires which attach to the unit with flat poppers, to minimise unnecessary bulking. The pads themselves are just 1mm thick, rendering them invisible under your clothing.
The Ova's most distinctive feature is its size. It has been designed to be especially discreet, so that nobody need know when you are using it. The unit itself is just 55mm across at its widest point, and can be clipped to a belt or waistband. With only three buttons - on/up, down/off and mode - it is easy to use, and requires minimum effort to assemble. Despite its diminutive size and simple operation, it is just as powerful as standard TENS machines.
The Ova's electrodes can be applied in advance, without attaching them to the unit. Keeping them in place prior to your period means that it is even easier to set up the Ova and start to experience pain relief as soon as you require it. However, if you wish to just keep it in your bag in preparation, the Ova and its accessories fit neatly into a small, soft carrying case, which can easily slip into your bag.
Women should not have to make the choice between putting up with regular pain, or resorting to drugs to deal with it. Ova makes monthly suffering a thing of the past - safely, naturally, and effectively.
Period pain (dysmenorrhoea) is caused by cramps of the uterus.
Treatment commonly consists of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs designed to reduce the activity of the uterine muscle.
Ova offers a safe and drug free alternative. This is a specially designed and exceptionally small and discreet TENS unit pre programmed with frequencies set to provide the optimum suppression of period pain.
Clinical trials have shown that TENS is very effective at treating period pain
