Works fine but takes getting used to
on July 1, 2011
My wife fell and broke 13 bones - happily all ones that do not require surgery; but she had a lot of pain and found the TENS at therapy helped. I ordered this and was surprised how well it worked for such a low price; but there were some issues.
For one thing, there really isn't a "1" setting on the dials - so the lowest setting can feel a little, well, shocking for someone who is not used to this kind of therapy. This is especially true when the pads lose some of their stickiness and concentrate the power onto a smaller spot.
For another, the three available patterns (beat, knead, massage) each might be perfect for different things, but there is no way of telling without playing with them and seeing what works. My wife stuck with "massage" the whole time and ignored the other patterns.
Still, a good deal for the money. I, too, would recommend getting the Tac Gel and some more pads - the replacement ones are larger than the ones that come with the unit and that's an improvement.
