application refers to the use of a Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator. These devices are usually small enough to fit in your pocket and are used primarily for pain control. The proposed mechanism by which the TENS unit works is by providing competing sensory (electrical) stimulation to inhibit the propagation of the pain conducting fibers to the central nervous system. Wearers of the unit will typically feel an electrical sensation where the application pads are placed and some muting of pain sensation in the area.
