Dual Channel SD TENS Unit - ProM-503D, Black Tens Unit
How Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation works: 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.Unit overrides the pain signal to the brain by sending a comfortable electronic impulse. When the 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.
Precise Amplitude Control
The amplitude can be adjusted linearly in 1mA each step from 0mA to 80mA. The exact amplitude level is visible in the liquid crystal display.
Open Electrodes Detection
The amplitude will be reset at 0 mA when an open circuit at CH1 or CH2 is detected.
The treatment time used by the patient can be stored in the unit. It allows physical therapist to check if the unit is used as prescribed.
Device Holder attached by Magnetic Snaps
The device holder with belt clip is attached to the unit by magnetic snaps. It is very easy to use it. The special design of the holder allows you to adjust the parameters when you are wearing it.

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.
