I would give this zero stars if possible
I bought one of these from chemist warehouse. It is not the first one I’ve owned. The pads usually don’t last very long and are expensive to replace.
The latest one I’ve bought has issues with the leads. It will not complete a circuit so will not work or send pulses.
As they are on skeleton staff over Xmas period they unable to provide a immediate response, replacement or even fault find without me visiting their factory.
I would not recommend anyone buying these due to their poor quality and poor warranty follow up. You purchase these exp...ecting immediate pain relief but have to wait two weeks to get any action or even be contacted as they have no staff on until the 6th of Jan. They are also overpriced compared to others on eBay and the pads don’t last so I would steer clear of omron products due to crappy warranty and the cost of replacement pads I am most disappointed with this product and companies after sales service.
This is a great little machine.
I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews but I bought it and I'm so glad I did. This is a fantastic little machine and the range of settings and options is excellent. I can't get it anywhere near max setting for pulse but it certainly packs a punch. I've had a cheaper TENS machines before but this blows it away. I highly recommend it. This is my 2nd Omron product and I couldn't be happier with the brand.
This may or may not help
I bought this product using my health insurance (it was paid in full) some years ago to address my lower back pain, however I was recently told that electrical current may help with accumulated liquid in the joints, e.g. knee so I'm giving it another try to see how it might help.
Don't forget that you can't use these electrical stimulators on mussels close to your brain or heart, e.g. neck or chest.
Questions & Answers
my feet and legs slightly numb/cold can the tens machine be helpful
See a chiropractic and acupuncture for spine issues. You may need daily and regular stretch to fix that. No machines is going to help with that. But you can.
See a doctor for artery blockage CT Scan check, if you don't feel having spine issues as the cold legs may mean lack of blood supply.
can I use this machine for Peripheral Neuropathy
Im 53 with bad osteo. Which vibrator would be best for me?
These type of equipment are claimed to be good for muscles, which I even doubt that. For such issue like what you seem to have, I don't see any use of such equipment. There are good medications prescribed by doctors, combined with good life style, good diet including salmon fish (oven baked), vegies, etc. and having sun to bump up different type of vitamin D's in the body should be more helpful that these equipment. Good luck mate!
