The Wireless TENS Back Pain Revolution is Over, and You Win!
Back pain relief has just gotten easier! Physical therapists have long used TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) to relieve pain and speed recovery from injuries and surgery. Now this fantastic technology is available for home use at a reasonable price. Here is a look at two such units:
About the Hollywog WiTouch Wireless TENS This unit offers battery-operated, remote controlled relief from back pain. It features a coverage surface that is 2.5 times the area of the average portable pain-relief device. It’s comfortable, discreet and light to wear, with belts, wires or straps. It boasts long battery life, with over 150 half-hour uses per battery change.
Pros
The good points of this device include not being tied to an electrical outlet and great use vs. battery life. Three hundred half-hour uses per battery change is a great deal. If 30 minutes is too short to suit you, just restart the unit! The level of stimulation is appropriate for a unit that can be worn to work. The gel pads grip well to hold the unit in place. The unit itself is thin enough to be unobtrusive under clothing, for a discreet fit. The unit comes with 2 AAA batteries and a lithium battery for the remote control.

Overall, the Hollywog WiTouch Wireless TENS pulse massage does a good job of relieving back pain. Its coverage size, portability and long battery life make it a sure winner for those who need to be able to carry their pain relief with them.
