I ordered this TENS Unit by Techcare after my wife received the same model a few weeks ago for a review she’s working on. I suffered a major back injury in 2001 while working as a fire fighter paramedic. I’ve been living in pain ever since.
For the most part, I’m okay now, but I have flare ups that limit my ability to walk, and I’m living through one now.
I decided to try my wife’s TENS until and see if it would help. I ended up taking it over and essentially living with it on my back. It’s absolutely amazing and I had to get my own.
I want to also add that I’m not getting paid or compensated for this review. I paid full price for the device and I’m simply wanting to share something that is awesome.
I can’t say enough about this tiny device about the size of an older iPhone. I’m amazed how long the battery lasts. I only charge it every other day and use it pretty much nonstop. The build quality is awesome as well. If you’re sorta obsessive about build quality like I am, you’ll be pleased to know that device is solid, nicely back-lit, and free from dust/debris under the screen.
When I saw my wife first use this, I assumed that this would cost hundreds of dollars, but as it turns out, it only costs about $40. It’s absolutely worth every penny.
I also have three kids with Autism and Sensory process disorder. We’ve discovered that my youngest loves using this device because it provides him with sensory input and actually calms him down.
This is perfectly safe, and while it can hurt if you turn it up too high, it feels like getting shocked. It’s more uncomfortable than painful.
For a kid like Emmett, who’s desperate, never ending search for sensory input, this TENS Unit is providing that needed feedback he is looking for. This includes deep pressure as well. ☺
We supervise him of course, but we’ll likely be buying another one, just for him to use when he needs it. I’m so grateful that this device was brought to my attention by Lizze because we wouldn’t have known how much it could help Emmett.
