PLUS - TENS Unit Accessories Kit contains everything you need to optimize your TENS/EMS Unit.
How Electronic Muscle Stimulation works: Electronic Muscle Stimultion is an internationally accepted and proven way of treating muscle injuries. It works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle needing treatment; this causes the muscle to exercise passively. Electronic Muscle Stimulators (EMS) Stimulate, Re-educate, Massage, and Build Muscle. Electronic Muscle Stimulation is basically done by stimulating some areas of the body. For this purpose, an electronic stimulation device is used - electrode pads are placed directly on the body area(s) that need to be stimulated. By dialing the voltage, you can pick different pressure on the muscles, that create various medical and cosmetic effects.
The low voltage is usually done on smaller, involuntary muscle groups, which cannot be stimulated in other ways. The low voltage also stimulates the brain, which starts sending impulses through the involuntary muscles, thus stimulating them as well.
Electronic Muscle Stimulators (EMS) are used for both medical treatment and cosmetic purposes (conditioning and toning). Medical conditions treated by Muscle Stimulation include: Muscle Spasms, Long-term Disuse after Fracture or Prolonged Bed Rest, Strengthening for Joint or Muscle Injury, Immobilized Limbs, Atrophy Prevention, Bell's Palsy, Stress Incontinence, Muscle Weakness, Improving Muscle Tone, Muscle Spasticity following a Stroke, and Personal Fitness Training.
Optional Items: Conductive Electrode Prep Spray (prolongs electrode life), Recharger and Rechargable Battery, Extra Electrode Pads.

Long term effects of chronic electrical stimulation are unknown.
Stimulation should not be applied over the carotid sinus nerves, particuarly in patients with a known sensitivity to the carotid sinus reflex.
Stimulation should not be applied over the neck or mouth. Severe spasm of the larygeal and pharyngeal muscles may occur and the contractions may be strong to close the airway or cause difficulty in breathing.
Stimulation should not be applied transthoracically in that the introduction of electrical current into the heart may cause cardiac arrhythmias.
Stimulation should not be applied transcerebrally.
Stimulation should not be applied over swollen, infected, or inflamed areas or skin eruptions.
Stimulation should not be applied over, or in proximity to, cancerous lesions.
Safety of powered muscle stimulators for use during pergnancy has not been established.
Caution should be used for patients with suspected or diagnosed heart problems.
Caution should be used for patients with suspected or diagnosed epilepsy.
Caution should be used in the presence of the following:
When there is a tendency to hemorrhage following acute trauma or fracture.
Following recent surgical procedures when muscles contraction may disrupt the healing process.
Over the menstruating or pregnant uterus.
Over areas of skin which lack normal sensation.
Some patients may experience skin irritation or hypersensitivity due to the electrical stimulation or electrical conductive medium.
Electrode placement and stimulation settings should be based on the guidance of the prescribing practitioner.
Powered muscle stimulators should be kept out of reach of children.
