The ReBuilder® electronically treats your nerves, calming erratic signals, eliminating pain, and increasing blood flow so that you can walk further, pain free. As an added benefit, the ReBuilder can help you get to sleep faster, and stay asleep all night. All this in the comfort of your own home, and it feels like a gentle massage.
*Full list of FDA cleared uses.
The ReBuilder's biofeedback circuitry allows its signal to be sent from foot to foot (or hand to hand), effectively stimulating the entire nerve pathway from the tips of the toes (or fingers) to the base of the spine on both legs (or hands) simultaneously; a much greater area than standard TENS. This same biofeedback mechanism continuously modulates the outgoing waveform in accordance with your body's response to the previous signal. This happens in real-time, 7.83 times per second. Not only will each user receive a custom-tailored impulse, but it will change as your body favorably responds to the healing impulses during the treatment time.
Additionally, 20% of the ReBuilder's signal stimulates passive exercise of the skeletal muscles to increase circulation by way of the body's venous muscle pump mechanism.
By self-regulating its outgoing waveform, the ReBuilder is able to 'talk to your nerves' in a way that is familiar to them and control pain and discomfort without inhibiting the nerve's ability to propagate a normal impulse. It does not cause or exacerbate numbness to do its job. This is critical for a neuropathy sufferer, who may already be struggling with balance and gait issues and especially important when you are stimulating the entire leg.
The ReBuilder stimulates muscle activity via the motor neurons, causing steady, rhythmic contractions to gently move venous blood toward the heart and assist the lymphatic system. This reduces edema and helps flush away toxins while at the same time, aids the delivery of fresh, nutrient-rich blood to the nerve endings. Since the signal originates at the most distal point (the foot), it makes the most of this natural squeezing effect, almost like toothpaste in a tube. Over time, this will also help strengthen atrophied muscles.

The ReBuilder was invented and cleared by the FDA by our founder and CEO, David B. Phillips, Ph.D in 1987, for his father who suffered from neuropathic pain, numbness and restricted mobility. It has undergone continuous improvements during that time. Many studies have proven it to be 94% to 96% effective. Dr. Phillips is also the inventor of the world's first infrared ear thermometer, the GST Breast Cancer Detection System, SilverCure for Molluscum Contagiosum, the Veinplicity (to enlarge the veins prior to venipuncture), the Electronic Allergy Detection system, and the AcuPen (for locating and treating acupuncture points), among others.
Other devices such as cheap TENS devices are, essentially, toys, not true medical devices. They do not evaluate the patient’s nerve dysfunction, they send everyone the same impulses, and these impulses have a waveform that is foreign to the nerves. By contrast, the ReBuilder measures the nerve waveform and then creates a unique compensating waveform that cancels out the dysfunctional component.
They do not measure he patient’s body mass, percentage of fat, or percentage of water to pre-set the device for safety. The toys send a huge signal, the same for a thin person as a heavy person. Thus there is a danger of burning out the nerves by sending too much current. By contrast, the ReBuilder measures the patient’s physical and electrical parameters and only after that, does it set itself limits for safety.
They send their foreign impulse at 100 times per second, which overloads the nerves, similar to sending the heart into fibrillation, causing a heart attack. The nerves need times between impulses to recover before the next impulse. The proper refractory period dictates 7.83 times per second. This is why the ReBuilder sends its self-modulated impulses at 7.83 Hz.
The other cheap toys block all signals, including normal signals, trading pain for numbness. Because the ReBuilder sends compensating waveforms, numbness is avoided, and normal signals can still operate.
Many other devices have rechargeable lithium ion batters which could overheat and catch on fire. The ReBuilder uses safe, readily available, non-rechargeable 9V batteries.
There are many more proprietary differences, but the ReBuilder is a sophisticated medical device with 3 micro-processors, and 30 years of experience with a perfect safety record.
Benefits accumulate the more you use it.
There are over 7,000 doctors who use it daily in their practice or prescribe it to their patients for home use.

A study of 551 patients indicating the clinical success of the ReBuilder in relieving Peripheral Neuropathy symptoms.
In many instances, leg cramps vanished. Better mobility and more restful sleep were also experienced.
The ReBuilder System, is a fabulous medical device to help alleviate the symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy. In the past, we have used traditional physical therapy electrical stimulation devices, but the ReBuilder System provided our patients with Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) the best and longest lasting pain relief while undergoing chemotherapy treatment. With these remarkable results (96% success rate) the ReBuilder System is now being used across all CTCA sites – helping more oncology patients relieve their CIPN symptoms.

I had suffered for 15+ years from miserable neuropathy pains. I found the ReBuilder about 3 years ago, now living life with very little pain whatsoever. I thank you for inventing this life saving product, and I will always be spreading the word.

The symptoms I was experiencing on a daily basis were really affecting my life. I couldn’t sleep and I was always in pain. I started seeing a doctor who uses the ReBuilder and that changed everything.

Perhaps you have a knock-off device which you were told was 'the same as' or 'as good as' the ReBuilder? Or one that is said to have "ReBuilder mode"? Are you ready to step up to the real thing now, having realized the imitator falls short? Call us, we may offer you a substantial credit for your "toy". We get these trades regularly, from hundreds of dissatisfied users who had been duped into buying substandard equipment for their situation. There is only one ReBuilder.
"Grossly under powered giving very little effect or benefit. Very dissatisfied after buying a competing unit which has now failed twice." Published on March 21, 2014 by Paul G.
"This is not a real tens unit. NOT POWER FULL ENOUGH TO HELP BACK PAIN. It has only one setting." Published on August 9, 2013 by Eric N.
"I was lured to another site offering a discounted price for the ReBuilder, but was then 'bait and switched' convinced to buy this worthless device. It is way too complicated to use, underpowered and when I compared it to an actual ReBuilder that a friend has, it was totally different. Thank you for giving me a trade-in credit towards the real thing. God bless you." Published on October 14, 2016 by Billy P.
