Improved Technology : The new Fuego TENS Unit combines the pain relieving technology of TENS with soothing healing heat. New heating electrodes concentrate a penatrating warmth where you need it most, directly on your treatment area. This unit is ideal for upper back, lower back, neck, arms, legs, or just about anywhere you are experiencing pain and discomfort. Digital control over 9 treatment modes, tempurature and treatment time, gives you full control over each theraputic session.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive, drugfree method of controlling pain. TENS Units use tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain, allowing for a return to normal activity. In many people, the reduction or elimination of pain lasts longer than the actual period of stimulation (sometimes as much as three to four times longer). In others, pain is modified while stimulation actually occurs.
This FDA Approved TENS Unit is both Safe and Effective. The new Fuego TENS Unit overrides the pain signal to the brain. by sending a comfortable electronic impulse. When the new Fuego TENS Unit overrides the pain signal, it "tricks" the brain into thinking their is NO PAIN. This produces Fast and Rapid Pain Relief, usually within a minute or two. You can control and customize the intensity, pulse rate, and pulse width to "experiment" and find the best setting for your pain relief.

Place Electrodes on or around where you are experiencing pain
Change the batteries when needed
Vary the controls and settings (both the frequency and voltage)
Set the proper duration and intensity of the stimulation (which depends on the location and type of pain)
Follow instruction manual
Low Frequency: The lower frequencies, 2-5 Hz, are believed to cause the body to react. The reaction creates natural painkillers, or endorphins. The endorphins block the pain naturally and while popular, this isn't the usual method of using TENS.
High Frequency: For more intense pain, higher frequencies, 90-130 Hz, work to actually interrupt those pain signals being sent to the brain. This is the most common use for the machine and while you start slow, it's not uncommon to need to up the frequency to find the best block.
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.
