Tennant BiomodulatorTM Information
Background Information from sEnergy Medical Group, Inc.
I have been trained in both the SCENAR and the Tennant Biomodulator.
I more often use the Tennant Biomodulator. It is an advanced technology that was originally designed by one of the inventors of SCENAR technology-- Self-Controlled Energo-Neuro-Adaptive Regulator. The technique is a kind of biofeedback and has been called systemic interactive medicine. Although SKANAR has been used in Russia for twenty years, it has only recently arrived in the U.S.A. The Tennant Biomodulator device is indicated for pain management, relaxation training and muscle re-education.

The Tennant Biomodulator is a biofeedback device about the size of a remote control that has been accepted by the Food and Drug Administration for use in relaxation training and muscle reeducation. I use this device because I can apply its electrical measurement and treatment functions using my knowledge of acupuncture and am convinced that besides relaxation and muscle re-education it stimulates the acumeridian zones. The FDA approval for muscle relaxation is, in my opinion, due to the fact that the Autonomic Nervous System enervation to the muscles is affected by the electrical impulses that are controlled by the computerized Biomodulator biofeedback technology.
"Anything that hurts - it can help," says one enthusiastic practitioner (not Dr. Tennant -- who says that it is FDA approved only for relaxation training and muscle re-education).
FREQUENCY SETS: the Tennant™ Biomodulator® is capable of advanced frequency sets and biofeedback that are not available in any other “SCENAR” type device. Each mode is achieved by pressing the mode-selector button. It does not require that you remember how to press multiple buttons to achieve the mode you want. As you press the mode-selector button, a light glows beside each of the following modes. Stop on the one you want to use.
TENNANT™ AUTO-INFINITY: This mode has become a clinical favorite. One simply places the device over the area in question. It automatically reads the electronics of the tissue and, if the reading is abnormal, it begins biofeedback. It then periodically reassesses the electronics of the tissue. Diodes allow the operator to watch the area move from degenerative to inflamed to normal. Both sound and visual output allows the operator to know the progress of the biofeedback process.
FDA Classification: 882.5890 Neurology transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator for pain relief; and 882.5850 Neurology biofeedback device.
