Very convenient unit. Comes in a nice case. Clips to your belt so you can wear it as you move around. I matched the settings my chiropractor uses on the unit at his office and I can get relief without leaving home. I used the first set of electrodes for several weeks.
After getting approval from my doctor to use this machine for my neck and shoulder I have given it a couple of tries. It is surprisingly powerfull, however I do find the controls somewhat difficult to use and understand. I do like the portability and compact size ,
I bought this thinking something so small couldn't give the same results I get in physical therapy. I was wrong. This little powerhouse is every bit as potent as the big unit my physical therapist uses, only this little guy is portable. Don't think twice, this is the real deal and powerful.
I've only had this for around three weeks, but it's really helpful for the pains I've been having. I use the TENS on my hands for tendinopathy and I use the EMS on my shoulders for muscle pain. I only wish I'd gotten extra electrodes because my dog grabbed the ones that came with the unit. ;) When I found them the next day they were all dried out and I haven't been able to "reconstitute" them. I had some old 1" ones I'm using, but can't wait for my 4x6" ones to come in! There was a little bit of a learning curve for me as I didn't remember about the EMS ramping up and down. I had to contact the company for help. Once you get familiar with it, you can't beat it for pain. So long drugs!
I bought this as a present for my wife, who has frequent migraines related to neck and back tension. She says it's worked wonders! It's easy to use, and you can also build expertise over time by checking out the numerous online tutorials and videos about electrode placement. If you suffer from muscle spasms or other muscle-related pain, this is really worth a try. A couple of notes: Many units only do TENS or EMS, or they're vague about what they actually do (a very bad sign!). This is one of the few devices that has separate settings for both. TENS relieves pain by interfering with the signals coming from your muscles to your brain. EMS uses electricity to activate the nerves that control your muscles, causing them to contract and release rhythmically. If you're not sure which will help you, this is an especially good value! The included electrodes should last a couple of weeks, even with frequent use. This should be plenty of time to decide whether the device is a good investment. Once they lose their stickiness, you can order replacements online for under $* apiece.
