Im a massage therapist in a therapeutic clinic. Ive used units like this for over 2 years on patients & myself. This is a great TENS unit for usage anywhere by a medical professional, an athlete, or the average person looking to take care of themselves and alleviate any chronic or short term pain they may experience. I prefer the analog units like this instead of digital units because less complicated parts means less to worry about breaking down. Rotary knobs & slide-adjustments are easier to use that push-button set-ups. This by no means equates to therapeutic EMS units that offer many more options, which is why they cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars. This is a fantastic less expensive substitute that IS effective when used properly. My only gripe is the carrying case. The clips do not lock firmly enough. Again, for $$$ I'll gladly deal with it.

I received my order in the usual fast pace of Overstock.com. Everything was in order. I really haven't used it but once, so it is hard for me to give any more detailed review. So far the intensity and pulse strength are as they should be-I have had 3 previously, by prescription only, models. They each lasted in the area of about 3-5 years. I am so grateful that they are now available at such a reasonable price through a company such as Overstock. To get this at a medical supply store you could pay as much as $100, and that's minimum! Thanks for being there O.co!

I had a issue with one of the wires which has been corrected (thanks customer service!) and I'm really, really happy with this product. I worried at first it wouldn't be strong enough for something so small but that's not the case and I'm still using the lower settings. Not sure I will become pain free from using it but it's a good distraction. The price is just right and I'm already looking for replacement pads, not because these are not fuctional or worn out but I think the butterfly pads would be more useful for me.
I found that this unit is very effective in controlling discomfort/pain. This same model was purchased by someone else I know and the cost was significantly more ! Excellent value and price through Overstock. I would highly recommend this unit and did recommend it to a friend. Shipping of the product was very quick also !
I have stim done when i go to my chiropractor. I was so pleased to find this that I can do at home. I suffer from tension headaches and this helps! The only thing I don't like is the pads don't seem to stick as well as the ones my chiropractor uses. I purchased extra pads with the unit, and although they seem VERY sticky coming of off the plastic pad--they don't stick on my skin as well as i would like them to.

I was a little unnerved when I opened my box to find the case was not intact. It was broken before it was shipped, this i am sure of and disappointed in. But I didn't buy the unit for the case. I had long wanted one, but they were not available to purchase without a prescription. The second I found you could buy one, I did so. This is my little helper, for when I need to stand for long periods of time and it is wonderful. I do wish it could go up a little higher (my original one went up to 10) but, when you are achey this machine is heaven sent (and I didn't pay $90+ for it like some people do) Don't let the price throw you off, this works wonders. You have a choice of how you want to be stimulated and how long. and you control the intensity and speed. I am still a little angry about the case, but I can close it to store, so...

I have a tens 3000 and love it. 3 of my children have tens 3000 units and I just bought 2 more for my daughters inlaws. I wouldn't be without one. Best price from Overstock.com. HINT: The unit will outlast several sticky pads. Get some extras to go with it.
