Santamedical Dual Channel TENS Unit / EMS Unit Electrotherapy Pain Relief Device
I love this TENS unit! I have used one for a number of years but mine had died some time ago and I missed it dearly. This unit is so much better then what I did have. I love how it has different settings. The normal settings of intensity level like any other TENS unit but then it also offers different programs as well which is really neat. The booklet included explains what each program number does as well as very detailed instructions on how to use the unit.
There are 2 different packets included of self adhesive electrodes. One set is for using it as a TENS unit, while the other pads are for using this as and EMS unit. The difference between TENS and EMS are:
*TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) sends low -voltage electrical pulses through skin to nerve fibers to block the body's nerve pathways and stimulate endorphin's.
*EMS (Electric Muscle Stimulation) sends low-voltage electrical pulses through skin to stimulate healthy muscles in order to improve or facilitate muscle performance, increase range of motion, and increase blood circulation.
It takes 3 AAA batteries of which were included as well as a drawstring bag for storage.
There is an adjustable timer that you can set from 5 to 60 minutes.
There is a 2 year warranty on this unit but you need to register for it. The instructions are in the back of the booklet.
I love this unit and use it on a daily basis. It helps with those aches and pains as well as helps you relax.
I received this item at a discount or free in exchange for my honest opinion, and a review of my experience.
