Features and Benefits of Painmaster Micro Current Therapy

  • No external power supply needed
  • Indicator Light
  • Reusable and disposable
  • Can help speed the healing process
  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Ability to treat multiple areas of pain
  • Release muscle trigger points
  • Improves soft tissue regeneration

The Painmaster MCT patch adheres to the body around the affected area – delivers current through the skin.

  • Can be removed and applied when needed. (see Painmaster Instructions)
  • No side effects. Safe, easy to use.
  • Power supply contained Patch unit
  • No external power supply needed-Up to 300 hours of use


The Painmaster MCT Patch Cumulative Effect

Two self-adherent active electrode patches, linked by a wire, generate the current of 50µA (micro amperes). This current is about 5% of the commonly used factor of 1 mA (mille ampere) for electro therapy like TENS machines.
The treatment, however, lasts significantly longer than that of the higher current devices.

Crucial to treatment is the quantity of charge carriers Q (ions), which are being moved in the body tissues in the electrical field between the electrodes. The measure of the degree of stimulation is cumulative in accordance with the equation:

Q(carrier) = I (current) x t (time)
Standard Device
Q= 1mA x 0.5 hrs. = 0.5ma hrs.
Painmaster MCT Device
Q= 50 µA x 24 hrs. = 1.2mA hrs.


Comparison to TENs

(Transcutanous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)

TENs Painmaster MCT Patch
Strength of Current Uses Milliamps Uses microamps
(1000 times weaker than TENs)
Pain Relief Blocks transmission of pain carrying C nerve fibres Stimulates the regeneration of damaged tissue
Effectiveness Effective in about 40 to 50% of cases Preliminary observational data reveals that it be effective in about 85% of cases
Ease of application Requires co-ordination and dexterity to adjust dials Involves placing patches either side of treatment area
Side Effects Some evidence that the relatively high output may cause cell electrolysis Might cause a little redness where electrode patches were placed, disappears after 10 minutes
Experience Causes discomfort in about one third of users No discomfort
Sensation Causes mild tingling to throbbing Below sensory threshold
Post treatment Once switched off, there are no residual benefits Bioelectric changes continue even after the MCT treatment stopped
