The patent application (Publication Number: US20230381505A1) describes an apparatus designed for providing transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) to a user. The apparatus includes an electrical stimulator that generates electrical pulses suitable for TENS treatment, an electrode array with multiple electrodes for applying the generated pulses to the user's skin, and at least one thermal sensor connected to the stimulator to measure the user's skin temperature. The operation of the stimulator can be adjusted based on the measured skin temperature, enhancing the effectiveness and safety of the TENS treatment.

Furthermore, the apparatus in claim 124 specifies that the electrical pulses are current regulated, ensuring consistent and controlled stimulation. Claims 126 and 127 elaborate on the adjustment capabilities of the stimulator, indicating that the operation can be modified by changing the stimulation intensity or the duration of a treatment session. These features allow for personalized and adaptable TENS therapy based on the individual user's needs and skin temperature, potentially improving the overall treatment outcomes and user experience.
