Pain sucks. I know this, you know this, we all know this. It can be debilitating, leaving us agonizing and grasping for relief. What if I told you a simple machine could fix your pain? No, it's not magic.
Meet the TENS 7000 2nd Edition Digital TENS Unit - it's a transcutaneous electric nerve stimulator or TENS for short. It helps eliminate the painful sensations you feel by sending electrical pulses to your pain nerves and blocking the pain signals from getting to your brain via 'pain gating.' TENS therapy is nothing new, it's been around for a while and so has the TENS 7000 (since 2008). TENS 7000 was originally used exclusively by professional doctors and physical therapists until being sold as an over the counter (otc) TENS Unit, making it a trusted source of pain management with over one million sold.
Customizable Pain Management
One of the biggest differentiators of the TENS 7000 is the ability to customize your treatment. The unit comes with 5 programmed modes: burst, normal, modulation, SD1, and SD2. These preset modes are perfect for those that may need a simple pain fix or are new to using TENS Units.
Where the TENS 7000 really excels is in the ability to adjust the intensity, pulse width, and frequency. These features mean you can adjust the treatment to personalize your pain management - whether it's acute or chronic pain. This type of customization is typically not available with other TENS units on the market.
Not only can you adjust the treatment strength, but you can set the unit on a timer. Most TENS units automatically shut off after 15 minutes but the TENS 7000 gives you the control to set the treatment time from 1 to 60 minutes or continuous.
Do you have pain in more than one spot of your body? With the TENS 7000, you can target multiple parts of the body at once. The unit includes dual channels meaning you can use it with two or four pads (also known as electrodes) at once. And it's lead wires are long enough to let you reach multiple areas at once.
Stronger Treatment than Other TENS Units
When it comes to the intensity level of relieving pain, the TENS 7000 does not play around. Most TENS units range from 0 to 80mA. The TENS 7000 ranges from 0 to 100 mA giving it added pain relief strength. This type of pain relief makes it ideal for those with stronger and more painful conditions.
It includes eight intensity levels which are controlled through knobs located on top of the unit to customize the treatment of the dual channels. This means you can have two different intensity levels if you were treating two different areas of your body. The knobs have a protective cover so you don't have to worry about accidentally increasing your level (not a fun experience).
Portable and Subtle
Portability is a major plus with this TENS unit. With dimensions of 3.98 in (H) x 2.4 in (W) x 0.96 in (D) and weight of 5.29 oz, it is smaller than an iPhone 5. Not only this, but it features a clip on the back so you can clip it to your pants. These features make it very subtle and easily useable in public without getting in the way or attracting attention. Pain doesn't stop and with TENS 7000, your pain management doesn't have to either - regardless of your daily activities.
As an added bonus, the TENS 7000 comes with a sturdy carrying case with a handle for added protection. This is great for travel and storage, especially with all of the accessories that you need to use it.
The TENS 7000 does use a 9V battery to power itself. This may be a drawback when compared to other TENS units, but can be fixed by purchasing a rechargeable 9V battery. Users have reported getting 10 to 12 hours out of each battery. This varies based on the settings being used during treatment. At this rate, you would get roughly 20 30 minute sessions out of a single battery.
One Year Warranty
The TENS 7000 comes with a one-year warranty that covers the parts and labor for the product. The unit includes a warranty card for registration on the site so if something happens to your unit, the company will replace it immediately. Not only that, but the warranty includes support from their customer service team to answer any questions about using the device.
