After dealing with some aches, pains, and pulls from triathlon training I stumbled across a TENS/EMS system that did a great job of eliminating these issues without getting "doped" up on meds or spending a fortune with my doctors. The TENS/EMS I was originally looking at was about $$$$, so I started looking into good names/brands, reviews, and more affordable options. This system met all the requirements and I got the system today. I've been like a kid with a toy on Christmas day - I have used it on my calves, lower back, upper back, deltoids, biceps, hip flexors, and abs. I'm loving it. It's relaxing, loosening up my muscles, and fairly easy to use.
I HIGHLY recommend watching some video tutorials on YouTube and reading the instruction manual, otherwise you'll be one of the review up here giving it 1 star and talking about how it drives you crazy. It does require some know-how, but I got up-and-running in under 20 minutes.

Yes, there is a new medical phenomenon called iPad elbow. At first I thought I hurt my arms lifting some bedroom furniture, but that was months ago. The arm braces helped a little, but did not cure anything.
I saw this set and purcahsed because of the good reviews. Everyone was right. Take the time to read the manual so that you understand the difference between TENS and EMS.
Whatever mode you are in, once all your settings are up, you push the up arrow to increase the intensity to a point that is comfortabnle to you. That is how you "START" the device. For the life of me I was wondering why it was all programmed but wouldn't start pulsating. This device pays for itself after missing 3 PT deductables. If you plan on using this a lot, you may end up needing to buy some extra sensor pads.
I purposefully held off on writing a review until the newness factor wore off. This works as advertised and has a couple of neat features.
I go for physical therapy somewhat regularly due to my condition in my shoulders and neck. This product does everything the therapists product does, plus a bit more. (She even help me tweak some of the settings). Extra bonus, this has the A/C adaptor so you are not going through batteries like crazy.
This is perfect for home use. 4 pads means that you don't feel lacking (i had previously tried a 2 pad). The pads have lasted for between 6 - 10 uses of a half hour in duration. The directions are easy to follow and use for the settings. Nice that it comes in a kit and everything can be kept together.
Bottom line - the product really works well. I have had no issues and at this point have had it for almost 2 months.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems like a high quality product
I found this to be of high quality and easy to use. The instructions are very easy to understand and using the unit is very simple. I picked this Intensity Stim lll over another websites product costing more but doing basically the same as this unit does. I find it to be a great value for the money. Plus the pads are of high quality and last a long time. Does a fantastic job of helping to relieve muscle pain in my arm and shoulder area. Very lightweight so if you want to clip it to your belt or put in a coat pocket, etc. the unit is easy to take along with you wherever you go. Its even small enough to fit in your shirt pocket. The a/c adapater is a great plus for using it at home and saving battery life. If you are thinking of getting one of these for your pain management then I highly recommend this unit. High quality unit, very well made. I give this 5 stars.

I actually got this product for a relative with lower pain pains and he hasn't tried it yet so I don't know if it will help his back pain. I tried it on myself just to make sure it works before shipping it overseas and this little machine does an amazing job relaxing your muscles. I tried on the different settings and different intensity and was very pleased with the product. The product arrived within two days, I was very surprised since I got the regular overstock free shipping.

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.
I like everything about this unit except for the beeping sound every time the buttons are pushed. That's the only reason it's not getting 5 stars. But it works great and has already paid for itself (saving me several trips to the physical therapist)!

Thank you for shopping with us rod5007. It is recommended that you consult a medical professional before you purchase any equipment of this nature. The theory is that this will tense and then relax the muscle. I hope that helps. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 24, 2013

Hi rasheedaa, we were able to verify this informartion with our support team. Yes, the TENS mode has two modulated programs. Program ‘M’ modulates the pulse width and the rate at which it modulates can be set by adjusting the cycle time setting. A shorter cycle time will make it modulate more quickly. Program ‘M1’ does the same thing except it modulates the pulse rate instead of the width of the pulse. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 18, 2013
