TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. It is a device that sends small electric currents through your skin to reduce the pain. A TENS machine used during childbirth reduces pains before, during and after labour.
By virtue of our supplementary Top insurance, you are entitled to reimbursement of the hire of a TENS machine and accessories:
No statutory personal contribution applies for hiring a TENS machine.
Reimbursements under the supplementary insurances are not subject to an excess.
You can decide for yourself where you hire your TENS machine from.
