Tenease History

Generic placeholder image Mr Ranjan Vhadra. MBBS, FRCS, FRCS (Trauma & Orthopaedics)

Mr Vhadra graduated in medicine from the St. Bartholomew’s Medical School in London. He is a practicing consultant orthopaedic surgeon and is also a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and an International member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

Over the last seven years, when not operating or lecturing surgeons around the world, Mr Vhadra has been working on his treatment Tenease in the hope of bringing some relief to the millions of sufferers of Tennis Elbow.

Tenease has evolved from research Mr. Vhadra carried out as a trainee Surgeon. Vibration therapy has been available for many years with much research published in the medical literature on its effectiveness. However, the treatment required large and expensive machines which meant the therapy was only available in hospital. Mr. Vhadra and his team of engineers have been able to miniaturise the electronics. Tenease is now a portable, easy to use, safe and effective device that many tennis elbow sufferers have found invaluable.

For many patients Tenease allows relief of their painful condition without having to take drugs. It can even prevent the need for surgery. Tenease is patented, trademarked and has successfully bought relief to thousands of sufferers.

John Kimble: It must have been about 10 years ago since I bought mine. The pain was driving me mad and after weeks of trying all sorts of remedies, and a visit to the doctor, I thought that I might as well give it a try. It was marvelous. Within days I was pain free. Occasionally it comes back and sometimes even one session puts it away. Over the years I have also lent to a friends and colleagues. Each one has gone on to purchase their own Tenease. It is a great invention that I can't recommend highly enoug..
