InterX 5002 is a portable handheld medical device which uses electrical stimulation for the relief of acute and chronic pain.
The therapy is safe, effective, drug free and non-invasive. It has been clinically proven to control pain and to work on complex chronic conditions that have not responded to other treatment. Early application positively affects the healing of trauma and is used post surgically.
The device itself generates electrical high amplitude, high density impulses that are delivered to the body via a set of electrode pads placed directly onto the skin. These impulses stimulate nerve endings which in turn trigger the body’s response with a number of pain relieving mechanisms.
It has synergetic effects with other therapies.
Personal InterX devices are available to buy or rent for home use, post consultation and training.

More information on InterX:
The device is unusual in that it incorporates a feedback system that modulates the electrical stimulus in response to the impedance of the patient’s skin.
Interactive Neurostimulation therapy comprises a unique ability to locate the optimal treatment areas with the InterX, targeting them with specific interactive, high amplitude, high density pulsing current. Cutaneous stimulation does not cause muscular contraction and the InterX is safe to use over internal metal work.
The design of the flexible array electrodes ensures that most treatment is delivered to areas of low impedance. The low impedance on the skin is caused by an increase in the sympathetic skin response and research shows that these points correlate to myofascial trigger points1 and major nerve branches2.
The device generates high amplitude, high density current and damped biphasic electrical impulses that are delivered to the tissue via a set of electrode pads placed directly to the skin surface at the required area, thus enabling stimulation of all cutaneous nerve endings which in return triggers the bodies response with a number of pain relieving mechanisms. The InterX is sensitive to changes in skin impedance, where electro-physiology of the skin and underlying tissues controls output from the device by varying the voltage in order to maintain a constant peak current.
The InterX is a Class II medical device. It is a portable handheld unit that is powered by standard AA batteries. It is easy to use, and has no known adverse side effects that are commonly seen following the use of medications. There is no electrode gel required. The InterX produces a pulsing current ranging from 15 – 480 pulses per second. The research shows that low frequency stimulation causes a release of endomorphin, beta-endorphin and enkephalins where a high frequency stimulation releases dynorphins3. The broad range of pulsation by the InterX ensures that all types of endorphines are released.
InterX therapy has been reported to provide non-drug pain relief; increases range of motion and a reduction in swelling in acute injuries4 5
To summarise, a new treatment modality InterX is clinically proven to be consistently effective at getting patients back into active rehabilitation sooner, with less pain and more ROM6. The InterX has shown to be highly effective across a wide range of conditions, helping a broad spectrum of patients return to an active lifestyle.
