I received the Tens Unit Handheld Electronic Pulse Massager through a promotion.
- Six automatic programs
- Three Diverse style modes
- Dual control system
- Takes 4 AAA batteries (Included)
This tens unit comes with 4 self-stick hypoallergenic electrode pads and 2 lead wires.
The tens unit has a dual control system, which allows for two different spots to be stimulated at once. It can also be used on multiple people at once.
The tens unit is easy to use. The batteries go into the compartment on the back of the tens unit. With the device off, place the sticky electrode pads on desired location. The booklet shows examples of several places the pads could go on. Make sure the lead wires are connected properly.
Turn the dial that is for the desired lead wire to change the intensity levels of the device. The tens unit can go from 1 to 10 in intensity.
For me, my desired intensity level changes due to the location. For my more sensitive areas, such as feet, arms, and joints, I prefer the intensity to be 5 or lower. For my back, lets, and shoulder areas, I prefer intensity levels between 6 to 8.
Going all the way to 10 isn't a bad painful feeling. It's more of an annoying or sharp prickly feeling. For me, going all the way up to 10 isn't comfortable. The lower levels are more relaxing, yet the higher intensities feel like they give a deeper massage.
I enjoy that there's several different modes to choose from. There's massage, beat, and knead for a steady modes. There's also automatic modes to choose from depending on the location of the pads. The automatic modes will go through all the styles (massage, beat, and knead). There are automatic timers depending on which mode chosen.
Be careful not to use the device for too long or with too strong of intensity for a longer period of time because it can make your muscles stiff and sore after being stimulated so much.
