    • This TENS unit is perfect for at home & travel.
      Verified Purchase

      This tens unit is everything I expected. A very portable, easy to use device. It can be used with a single lead (2 electrodes), or with 2 leads (4 electrodes). The timing and pulse parameters will be the same for both leads if using both. You can adjust the intensity independently. You will want to purchase extra sticky electrode patches. I found them online and also at my physical therapist. Best price for extra set of 4 sticky electrodes runs about $2.50. You will get one set with the unit. They measure 1.5" square, but you can use 1.25" round or square for this unit. Depending on your skin and cleanliness, one set may last daily use for 1 week. I'm still learning about this. You won't be disappointed with this unit. Good value for the money.

    • rehabbing my shoulder
      Verified Purchase

      This is a well-made box. It comes with a nice case and a good set of electrode pads. It has multiple TENS modes and 2 EMS modes. Everything about the construction from the cables, pads, ports for connecting the cables, the buttons, the covers, belt clip, etc. says this is a quality box and something I would expect to find in use in a formal setting at a doctor’s office or a physical therapist location. The EMS mode only uses a ramp and has two options. The first options ramps EMS on both channels at the same time and the other mode runs the ramp on one channel at a time. I wish I had more EMS options but what comes with the box appears to be sufficient. Because I’m not trying to manage pain I am not using the TENS but I’ve played with it. There are several options. With some experimentation with the adjusting the settings for each TENS option there are interesting effects that TENS will create. It takes a bit of experimentation to see what each setting does. Moving from one mode to another may give you a surprising jolt if you don’t manually reduce the output using the dials at the top. However, as you switch between modes, the unit stops sending signal until you stop at a mode for a second or two. This allows you to switch modes without experiencing each mode as you move through them. There is documentation on the basics of the unit. But, how you need to set it up for what you want is left up to you. That is, to rehab my shoulder I simply had to figure it out. I had physical therapy in the past and know where the pads are placed. I had to experiment with the EMS setting to get the desired muscle stimulation to work the muscles. Combined with other work, I think EMS is helping me rehab my shoulder. A lot of things will heal naturally but my experience with a previous strained rotator is that it keeps getting worse and worse without treatment. I knew if I could not find a way to start exercising the muscles they would start to atrophy and so I used EMS to stimulate my muscles. Combined with no weight or very low weight exercises I am regaining the use of my shoulder and the pain is slowly going away. I would absolutely buy this again. The pads have lasted well through a dozen or so sessions and I’ve already found that I can find new pads at affordable prices. Also, I am still using the original 9v battery that shipped with the box. I am surprised at how long a single battery has lasted. There is no option for a power supply to avoid using batteries.

    • Great quality for the price
      Verified Purchase

      I suffer from alot of mid back spasms and neck pain from a severe car accident a few years ago. I've tried everything from P/T to massage, chiropractic, and nutritional therapy. I've been getting these spasms that last 5-6 hours at a time several times a week during flare ups that nothing seems to touch. This unit had greatly reduced the severity and length of the spasms. I don't go anywhere without it and even sleep with it turned on when needed. It's very easy to use and I like the TENS vs. EMS option. The construction is better than the last unit I had, I especially appreciate that the clip is metal as I keep it on my belt when I'm wearing it and I don't have to worry that it will break. Would definitely buy this unit again. Only cons which I did not indicate in my rating as I feel they are more personal to my situation than the unit itself: Make sure you try different shaped pads, the ones that come with it where too small to spread the current out enough for my pain management. Also I was really hoping I could use it on my neck also but it does not help the pain there.

    • Good Unit
      Verified Purchase

      I bought this to help with frequent lower back pain. My Chiropractor had used EMS on my back before and the results were amazing. I tried this unit out and after playing with the settings to find just the right adjustment, I was able to get a comfortable muscle contraction that made my back feel great afterward. The TENS functions work good too and there are lots of options for that one. The instructions dont give you a lot of info as to how to set the modes or why you would adjust it certain ways. You will have to do your oown research on that or just tweak the adjustments until it feels good for you.

    • excellent device at great price
      Verified Purchase

      The Tens Ems is an excellent machine to help our back....This is a great combo unit

    • Glad I purchased it
      Verified Purchase

      I have been pleasantly surprised by this compact Twin Stim 2nd Edition TENS and EMS Combo Unit. It helps relieve my pain and I am very grateful for that. Several years ago (perhaps 12-15 years) I had a small unit from a different manufacturer. It had only two pads and it cost twice as much as my new TENS unit from Overstock. The new unit has 4 pads so it can be positioned in two different areas of the body. It also has variable functions and strengths. I am happy to recommend this product to anyone suffering with pain.

    • Awesome unit.
      Verified Purchase

      I love this unit. I had nerve damage from a collapsed disc and have been using this for about 1 month. I have only used the EMS mode as I am trying to work the muscles and help stimulate the nerves. I am still on the original battery while using about 30 minutes a day, so I probably have about 12-15 hours run time on it.. The strength is more than adequate, I usually set on only 5. The controls are simple to use, although this unit is so customizable that recommendation from you doctor or therapist would help to pick the right setting for your problems.

    • Great machine & price = Happy consumers
      Verified Purchase

      I injured my neck and shoulder a year ago transferring one of my patient over to another bed and since then my back has never fully recovered. I occasionally still experience pain, especially on my neck/shoulders. My physical therapist at that time recommended that I purchase a TENS unit but that brand that they're recommending literally cost an arm & two legs (approx $700?). Well, to make long story short... I searched online one night for TENS unit and ran into this machine w/ lots of good reviews and with a price that won't burst my wallet. I was hesitant at first but decided to give it a try since the price was reasonable and I have to say... I am glad I made that purchase! Machine works great and worth every cent. Also, what more can you ask for? It's a 2-in-1!

    • Knee pain relief
      Verified Purchase

      I was looking for an alternative to surgery and pills for knee pain relief I've had for a while. My boyfriend got one from his doctor and I tried it, but it had only TENS and he used it for knee meniscus pain. I have a slightly different story - I have pain under knee meniscus, so when my doctor stick her finger under my knee meniscus, I thought I would have a hart attack, bz of the pain. The cause of the pain was an inflammation, not known why. Maybe, because I did lots of sport activities in my 20s, or something else, but I started to fill it last year badly :-( And I am just over 40 and very active!!! Anyway, I did a research and I liked that this one , very small compact equipment has two: TENS and EMS. Very easy to use, very good manual with all directions and explanations you may need, very good price compare to others. I used it everyday for 15 min when my knees hurt a lot, and a couple times a week when the pain in a lower range. I found: the pain is not so sharp anymore I switched to treatments a couple times a week I can do my treadmill again in intense mode ;-) (it was painful before to do aka climbing on stairs) And I have my own and don't need to wait when my boyfriend not using his :-) I just want to buy bigger self-stick high quality premium electrodes so it can cover bigger area at once and I don't need to move them Follow the instruction for taking care of electrodes cz they are running fast. I am very satisfied I bought it.

    • Great for a paralyzed person
      Verified Purchase

      I am paralyzed and have tried cheaper stim units and they just didn't work well. This unit works great and can create a strong contraction on muscles that haven't been voluntarily used in nearly 4 years.

    • I recommend this product and this company.
      Verified Purchase

      The product arrived very quickly... before I expected it. I used the product extensively to help heal a pulled hamstring. My hamstring healed a lot faster than it would have without the EMS. A couple weeks later my brother borrowed the unit for a similar situation. He also had good results.

    • Good TENS
      Verified Purchase

      Good product, comes with 4 sticky pads and two lead pairs. Was a little confusing to come up with the right setting wanted but eventually you get it. Too many pulse settings, I usually just use like 2 different settings, but they are available if you need it.

    • Great product!
      Verified Purchase

      My wife has to use the E-Stem when her back pains get out of hand. This combined with a hot rice bag is the only thing that numbs the pain. Even high strength prescription meds don't work. I definitely recommend it.

    • DUAL TENS UNIT
      Verified Purchase

      I HAVE ALREADY WENT THRU ONE BATTERY. THE MACHINE FUNCTIONS PERFECTLY. MANY DIFFERENT SETTINGS. MY SCIATICA IS IMPROVING.

    • Nice Product
      Verified Purchase

      Nice product - does exactly what it is intended to do and adds the convenience of treating yourself for a fraction of the chiro or sports therapists cost. I use it just about every day for 30 min and am noticeably more limber and muscular irritation free afterwards.

    • Best so far, but not like the Physical Therapists
      Verified Purchase

      This unit was recommended to me by a co worker. I guess he set my expectations a little high because I find the manual and the indicators on the front to be very confusing. Also the there seems to be no gentle increase when turning it on. I feel nothing and then all of the sudden I feel like I'm getting shocked even though I am slowly increasing the settings. This machine is much better than the one I originally purchased, but I'm still not completely satisfied. I guess I was spoiled by the simplicity and gradual sensations of the one used on me at the physical therapist.

    • Verified Purchase

      Above average TENS pack, but outdated these days.

      It never worked properly.

    • Verified Purchase

      The insurance company wanted me to get one of these from the physical therapist at my cost of $300. This one works just as well if not better and is much easier to transport when I travel.

    • Verified Purchase

      Very good quality, easy to use, compact unit. Does what it's made to do . Not expensive, if you need one, it's great to own your own unit. Read ALL included instructions and cautions, and maybe good to seek more info on-line, and from a physical therapist, etc.. Don't use above the shoulders unless a doctor say's it's o.k., and maybe not even then.

    • Verified Purchase

      Price is right for this item. The various setting options were helpful and product was so easy to use. My physical therapist loved that I was able to purchase a good quality item for home use. I would recommend to a friend.

    • Verified Purchase

      I had terrible shin splints that were very painful. I don't like taking pain meds, so my chiropractor recommended a "tens" unit. It did the trick and relieved 90% of my pain until the pain finally went away. Although the cords were a hassle, the lack of pain was worth it. And I liked the fact that I could adjust how much stimulation I wanted.

    • Verified Purchase

      Works great !. Has a lot of capability at a low price .

    • Verified Purchase

      Very effective in treating minor ache and pain. It did help me a lot with a persistent sciatic pain

      Great unit! easy to use and program. really helps with swelling. this is the second one I have bought. travel with it as well.

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        I chose this product because many years ago I had spine issues. I used to go to a Chinese doctor in Ontario, CA for treatments of the Tens Method for pain and cardiac arrhythmia issues. It was a blessing to me. Since then, I've not had another opportunity to get back to CA to see this doctor, but I miss the Tens for back pain/muscle pain issues. I was very happy to find this product here, and it's a great compliment to the inversion tables. I will most definitely let my Chiropractor know, so he too may decide if he'd like to try this on some of his patients.

      • A:

        highest rated TENS product. Hubby and I both have lots of knee and back pain.

    • Q:

      "I understand the unit has two lead wires and each lead wire can use two electrodes (pads). However, can each of the two lead wires be set on separate settings so that I can attach two pads on my knee with a low setting and two pads on my hip with a high setting?"

      • A:

        Hello KMS, unfortunately you are not able to do that. Thanks for shopping with us!

      • A:

        Yes. You must place two leads on your knee and the other two leads on your hip. Then adjust the settings to your needs. I own this unit so I know.

      • A:

        Each set of pads (2) can be set on different settings.

    • Q:

      "Aren't these units regulated by Federal Law to only be sold by a licensed physician? How can Overstock sell them?"

      • A:

        We are still researching this and should have the answer shortly.

      • A:

        Hello Lee, thank you for your question. We have verified this unit is FDA approved, and can be purchased or sold over the counter. You may need to seek a prescription from a medical professional for insurance billing purposes. I hope this information is helpful. Have a great day!
