What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Neuropathy is weakness, shooting pain, tingling, numbness, and sensitivity that occurs as a result of nerve damage. Peripheral means “on the outside,” and peripheral neuropathy refers to neuropathy that affects the nerves carrying information from the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) out to the rest of the body. Peripheral neuropathy often begins in the feet and hands, and moves inward as it progresses.
Is TeslaMax® Technology Your Answer for Peripheral Neuropathy?
The TeslaMax is an electrical stimulation device that is unlike any other technology currently on the market. It uses a proprietary form of alternating current (AC) to stimulate deep, painless muscle contractions in neuropathy-affected areas such as the feet and legs. These powerful muscle contractions dramatically increase local circulation and move out fluid build-up—both of which greatly accelerate the body’s natural ability to repair the nerve damage that causes neuropathy.
Most muscle stimulators (including TENS devices) use direct current (DC), which can painfully sting and even burn the skin while creating only weak muscle contractions. The TeslaMax, on the other hand, uses Tesla-Based Technology to penetrate even the deepest muscle fibers for an experience that is unlike anything patients have tried before. It is hard to understand just how profound the difference is between the TeslaMax and other muscle stimulators until you try it for yourself.
What Happens During a TeslaMax® Treatment Session?
1. At the start of each TeslaMax treatment session, the patient will place electrodes on their feet and legs, according to physician instructions. The most common electrode placement Is on the bottom of the feet and on the muscle of the outer shin, as shown in the image above.
2. During treatment, electrical currents will travel back and forth between the two electrodes, causing the muscles of the feet and lower legs to contract and relax in intervals.
3. Painless muscle contractions push blood into tissues and move fluid build-up out. This increases blood flow and reduces swelling.
4. Treatments are performed once or twice daily, and usually last 30 to 45 minutes.
The TeslaMax® Take-Home Program
With our TeslaMax Take-Home Program, you can give yourself daily TeslaMax treatments in the privacy and comfort of your own home, at times that are convenient for you. Because you can treat yourself as often as is needed, you will be able to see results faster and have better success with the treatment program.
How Do Neuropathy Patients Benefit from Tesla-Based Technology?
There are three ways that neuropathy patients benefit from Tesla-Based Technology in the TeslaMax.
1. Improved Local Circulation
Many health conditions, such as diabetes, impair blood flow to the hands and feet. As a result, tissues do not get enough oxygen and glucose, which can lead to nerve damage and neuropathy. This lack of blood flow can also lead to ulcers, which are open wounds that heal slowly or not at all. The strong muscle contractions created by the TeslaMax increase blood flow to treated areas, providing damaged nerves with the oxygen and glucose they so badly need. One of the primary ways muscle contractions increase blood flow is by squeezing against nearby arteries and veins. This pushes oxygen-rich blood into surrounding tissues and moves deoxygenated blood back to the heart.
2. Improved Lymphatic Drainage
The lymphatic system plays an important role in waste removal in our body. It is made up of a network of lymph vessels. These lymph vessels remove excess fluid (lymph), dead cell debris, and toxic metabolic by-products from tissues. When lymph backs up in an area of the body, it can damage nerves by promoting local inflammation and causing tissue swelling (edema). Edema can cause or worsen neuropathy by putting pressure on nerves and also by blocking blood flow into tissues that are swollen with excess lymph. Normally, our bodies rely on the small muscle contractions we make through-out the day to move lymph out of tissues and into and through the lymph vessels. For some people, however, the lymphatic system is not working properly due to certain health conditions, the use of some medications, or limited physical activity. Edema is often the result, and nerve damage can follow. Tesla-Based Technology gets lymph moving again with ultra deep yet totally comfortable muscle contractions.
3. Nerve Stimulation
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation has shown promise in aiding nerve repair after nerve injury and has also been shown to help with neuropathy pain by blocking pain signals to the brain and triggering the release of pain-inhibiting neurotransmitters.
Available Through Prescription Only
The TeslaMax Is available only with a prescription through select healthcare providers who are partnered with Rehaba, the maker of the TeslaMax. Your clinician has determined that Rehaba’s Take-Home Program for peripheral neuropathy offers the best chance at reducing or eliminating your neuropathy symptoms. And Rehaba is committed to empowering them to implement and manage a plan of care designed to get results. By itself, the Tesla-Based Technology in the TeslaMax can dramatically improve your body’s ability to repair nerve damage. In addition, your medical provider may also prescribe lifestyle changes, dietary improvements, and nutraceutical supplementation to support your body’s response to TeslaMax treatments.

Research & Demonstrated Results
There is overwhelming evidence to support the health benefits of infrared therapy.
Near Infared (NIR) light has been the subject of at least 15 studies involving over 5,000 patients. The results have been published in multiple journals, magazines and clinic papers. Many of these studies involved patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. We’ve compiled some of the best research studies and demonstrated results in the whitepaper “Near Infrared Light Therapy: Treatments, Efficacy and Results”. Ask for a free copy.

Our mission is to continue developing products and services that benefit humanity by empowering people to control their health without prescription drugs.
HeathLight™ devices are also known as low-level light therapy (LLLT). The infrared and visible red LED’s are the heart of the HealthLight™ therapy system, providing gentle but powerful non-coherent light. HealthLight™ uses a carefully timed sequence of settings, known as pulses, to create an environment in which change can occur more rapidly.
How it works?
HealthLight™ increases vascularity (circulation) by increasing the formation of new capillaries, which are additional blood vessels that replace damaged ones. New capillaries speed up the healing process by carrying more oxygen, as well as more nutrients needed for healing. They can also carry more waste products away.
Tissue granulation is stimulated by the increased circulation. This part of the healing process is important for wounds, ulcers or inflamed tissues.
