    2-stars because I’ve owned other TENS/EMS devices of better value First off, this is an excellent portable TENS device that only uses 2 AAA batteries (incl.) and has 2 electrodes, but if you do some more research you’ll realize it is a little high-priced for what you get.I can only give it 2-stars because there are similarly priced TENS and dual EMS devices for the same price that have 4 electrodes that are far better values.I first got one after being hooked up to a “commercial” one at my chiropracter’s office. Later, I went to a different chiro and they had a small portable unit and I was like, wow, it works just as good. Thus, I searched Amazon many years ago and found a TENS/EMS dual unit with 4 electrodes for right at $50 or so.On top of that, the one I ordered many years ago, uses a longer lasting 9V battery, has a few dozen extra options, has more levels of sensitivity and more power output AND…also has an AC adapter.So would you pay the same amount for something with 2 less electrodes, has less power, less configurable options, and only uses battery power?Then, another consideration is..replacement electrodes. The type that I purchased uses the standard electrical-stim electrodes that I can purchase from any vendor. This OMRON unit uses their own connectors, therefore you have to go to OMRON to purchase them. I haven’t priced them out for this OMRON unit, but I know a dozen vendors sell universal electrodes for my old unit.On my old unit, I can set sensitivity for each pair of electrodes, so let’s say your whole back was in pain, but the lower hurt more. You can put 2 electrodes on the upper/middle and 2 electrodes on the lower. Then, you can turn up the power on just the lower as needed. Also, I can use just 2 electrodes if I wanted (like the OMRON).Here’s some helpful criteria to consider if you are looking for a device like this:=====================================================================================0. My disclaimer – I’m an engineer, I work in IT, I am not a doctor! ALWAYS ask your doctor before use and never use this near your neck or the front of your chest (or chest to back), please follow all directions in the instruction manual; use only as directed!1. Price2. How many electrodes? (Should be 4, IMHO)3. What is the electrode connector like? Can I buy more from any place or is it a proprietary connector that I must buy from the same manufacturer (like this OMRON)4. Does it do TENS and EMS or just TENS ?5. Can I use AC power to save on battery when I’m laying in bed?6. Is it portable? Does it have a battery power option?7. How configurable is it? How many options? How customizable are the various programs?8. Ask your Chiro which one they use if they have a small portable oneOnce you consider the 8 criteria above, you will understand why I give this one 2-stars.

    Omron’s ElectroTHERAPY Pain Relief Device is the real deal in a silly looking package. I shook my head when I got this from Amazon Vine. It’s one of those things you automatically get in your head “this is a piece of junk” before you even try it. However, in good faith, I gave it a benefit of a doubt. I was in for a surprise.First impressions out of the box: Laughable. This kidney bean shaped controller is odd looking lightweight plastic device. The sticky paddles, which look nicer and better made, has a big plastic clip at the plug where it connects to the controller. The clip actually partially covers the power button. I am rolling my eyes at this…really? I can imagine that this is to keep the connection snug and to avoid strain on it, but COME ON! It looks so hokey! (Posting pics of this.)First Try: My shoulder was hurting from doing a sawing project for my husband for a DIY home project. I figured this is a good of a chance as any to try the Omron Pain Relief Device out. I followed the instructions, placed the sticky pads of my shoulder, programmed the device, then gave it a go. The first thing I felt was a minute painless jab to my shoulder muscle. I giggled, rolled my eyes, but then more of the minute jabs came in slowly then faster. Oh my! It was like having tiny fingers giving me the most wonderful deep muscle massage. I was shocked (figuratively and literally) how well this was working on my sore shoulder muscle. I turned it up to level 2 and it was even better. Then I went for 3 – OH CRAP NO! – I backed it off to a comfortable level 2. <— It was in this moment I realize that device is actually doing tiny electro-shock therapy on me. It went from being pleasurable to freaky weird almost painful shock. I finished the 15-min session (it automatically shuts off after that time) and was very very please with the results. My sore muscle was in a delightful relaxed state and the soreness manageable.Surprised, I went to my husband to try it on him. I had to get past his initial “what a piece of junk” critical mentality to at least try it. We used it on his calf that had given him grief the night before. At first he was extremely skeptical, but after experimenting with settings and finding his comfort level at 3 for his leg, he actually began to enjoy the therapy. (He was like, “hey, go up to 4″ ZAP “Oh crap, no go back to 3!” We had a good LOL moment there.) We did one of his hands afterward, since his hands give him the most pain all the time. There are no instructions for hands, but we did improvised, used the arm programming at low level. My husband now swears that it was the first time he has gotten serious relief on several of his fingers in years.To say the least, my husband and I are now true believers for this still-hokey looking but effective device by Omron. My husband is happy to finally find something that is giving him some relief for his hands especially. We are still experimenting with placement for his hands, but so far we have been successful even with our bumbling efforts to get some relief for his joints.Omron’s ElectroTHERAPY pain relief is the real deal in a silly looking package. While it’s not a miracle worker, it does give viable results. I enjoy the deep muscle massage it provides, my husband is enjoying the pain relief it offers his hands.Good to know:- Runs on AAA batteries that are included.- The Long Life Pads are reusable and cleanable. The sticky stuff on the pads remind me of the sticky jelly toys that are washable. It comes with a tray to store, but I also reuse plastic sheet that originally covers the pads to keep the sticky surface dust free as possible.- The Long Life Pads are replaceable for a reasonable price. – The device uses electro therapy. In other words, it is using electricity to shock your muscles/joints, so use wisely and heed the precautions.- Start at level one and ease into the higher level. It can very quickly goes from comfortable to shockingly uncomfortable from one level to the next. My max level for my shoulder was 2; my husband for his leg is 3, but for his hands is 2. Each body part is going to have a different level that it finds comfortable.- The controller device feels cheap but looks nice (except for when it’s connected to the pads, then it’s laughable), but is decently built and easy to operate. Flashing lights tell you which program your using and at what level.- The clip used to keep the pads plugged into the controller is the oddest thing I’ve ever seen and I’m surprised that anyone would let a product go to market like that. I guess this was the cost effective way to have secure fit. This clip does partially cover the power button, but not so much where you can’t use it. I’m posting pics so you can see what I’m talking about.- It automatically shuts off after 15 minutes.When used…

    your own private stim, who needs chiropractors My wife and I both experience random bouts of pain in our backs and shoulders. Side effects from raising twins and years of lifting heavy weights in the gym.We have been to sports medicine clinics to get hooked up to the stim machine. No more.This small, cheap looking product has been great to us so far. Three programmed segments for arms, legs, and back, and 5 intensity levels within each. At Level 5, you will be surprised at the intense tension and pulsating that this machine can produce. With a single 20 minute session, my shoulder felt great and my wife had the same experience with her lower back.The setup is ridiculously simple, it only requires 2 AA batteries, and the pads are quite sticky.I can’t stress enough that on the surface, this gadget looks like a cheap piece of plastic that will be ineffective. Looks are deceiving. Function is what matters and this baby is worth the cash.cheers,Todd
