NEUBIE is an acronym for “NEURO-BIO-ELECTRIC STIMULATOR,” and is FDA-cleared.* When the NEUBIE is combined with NeuFit protocols, the system provides for new methods of Neuromuscular Re-education. As we all know, the nervous system controls every muscle movement.
The NEUBIE is similar to a TENS unit in that it is a type of electrical stimulation. That is, however, where the similarities stop. The NEUBIE is much more powerful, has different effects on the body, and can do more things.
TENS units use alternating current (AC), while the NEUBIE uses direct current (DC). Some of the beneficial effects of DC on the body are described here.
Whereas a TENS unit is for masking pain, the NEUBIE is able to do so much more. It is FDA-cleared for neuromuscular re-education, maintaining or increasing range of motion, reducing spasms, increasing blood flow, preventing atrophy, relieving pain, and more.
