Terminology: Taser

Taser is a brand name of an electroshock weapon. It fires two small dart-like electrodes,  delivering an electric current to cause the recipient neuromuscular incapacitation.

A person hit by a Taser may experience pain, over-stimulation of sensory and motor nerves and intense, involuntary muscle contractions.

For more information, visit the Axon website (the company that sells Tasers) here.



Spanish – Since Taser is a brand name, it can be left as is. Alternatively, arma de electrochoque or pistola paralizante can be used.
