Abstract
SELECTIVE APPLIATION OF TRANSCUTANEOUS ELECTRICAL NERVE STIMULATION (TENS) FOR PAIN CONTROL HOLDS PROMISE IN THE AREA OF DENTAL ANESTHESIA. APPLICATION OF A NOVEL CARBON FIBER ELECTRODE WITH A SOPHISTICATED YET SIMPLE CONTROL UNIT, WILL LEAD TO AFFECTIVE PAIN CONTROL IN DENTAL APPLICATIONS. MECHANICAL AND ADHESIVE ELECTRODE ATTACHMENT TECHIQUES WILL BE INVESTIGATED. A NEW POLYACRYLAMIDE\SILICONE PRESSURE SENSITIVE, WATER ACTUATED ADHESIVE WILL BE INVESTIGATED. ELECTRICAL WAVE FORMS AND IMPEDENCE LEVELS WILL BE REVIEWED, AND THE MOST EFFECTIVE LEVELS IDENTIFIED. LIMITED CLINICAL STUDIES WILL XONFIRM THE AFFECTIVENESS OF THE MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL PARAMETER FOR PAIN CONTROL. WORKING MODELS WILL BE PRODUCED.
