LCD and power Issues model MH8001
I’m a little disappointed as around two years ago approximately I purchased the MH8001. I had suffered from work related injury and was very happy with the machine as I was in extreme pain 24 seven this injury happened on 2 August 2017 and I am still absolute Agony Every single day. I’ve been unable to work during this whole time period So You can imagine the pain I deal with day today. I was amazed by this machine if you were actuallynyou can imagine the pain I deal with day today. I was amazed by this machine if you actually Took the time and...studied what the Device was able to do it is quite impressive. It helps me with my pain extremely well on a daily basis without having to use so much painkillers and ruining my body With the amount of tablets needed every single day. Unfortunately after around One Year The machine would turn on once I press the power button but then after five seconds or so The machine would just shut down, there was no issue with the power adapter and there was no issue with the battery. Not only did that happen but also the left side of the LCD screen was gone this meant that I could only see channels three and four. The device was always kept inside the case After every use. I didn’t have the time to send it back and I was in desperate need of it daily. So I decided to take a look at it myself I went out and bought a set of jewel screwdrivers. What I noticed was that some of the screws with either Loose or overtightened and too tight To unscrew. Luckily the power issue was due to one of the screws that were loose so I tightened it and machine now stays on. Unfortunately I was unable to repair the LCD screen as one of the screws were Missing and all the other screws in the area of LCD screen that was broken were unable to be tightened. Because one of the screws that were missing was in the corner where the display did not work, I tried To remove one of the screws at the bottom of the device to see If I was able to fix the LCD screen because when you push down on the corners of the device you’re able to see the whole LCD display but Unfortunately I was unable to unscrew it due to it being overtightened too.

I brought it online at Chemist Warehouse. A good site that is easy to use and provides enough information and clear pics. There is good assortment and it was quite a good price. Instructions are easy to understand and it hasn't taken very long to get an understanding of what programs i prefer. I'm currently using it for my neck and shoulder and it's a good alternative to use with or without medications. I'm very happy with the purchase and i have recommended it to family and friends that i think would benefit from it.
Amazingly quick customer service.
Ordered it 7am on Thursday morning and it was sent from QLD express post, arriving in Melbourne Friday mid morning in time for a birthday gift that afternoon!!
Can't comment on the unit or its effectiveness as recipient is waiting to use it after physio puts in the settings for them prior to use. Purely on customer service alone these guys are awesome!

Bought it based upon recommendation from my Physio after a grade 1 tear on my Achilles. The TENS was easily to navigate using the pre programmed setting (45 preset programs). Personally P6 was my prefer setting.
I also purchased the socks and gloves electrode and found it more to my liking.
The unit is flimsy constructed but very easy to use with minimal buttons.
The lead wires and electrodes appeared to be fragile and may require correct fitting. The unit can be run both with battery 9V or AC.
I ordered the machine from Steve Gordon, Medic 2000 in Hamilton Brisbane at about 4.00pm yesterday afternoon and received it in Sydney, near Hornsby at about 10.30am this morning. We are very impressed. Much better than waiting until next Wednesday to collect it from the local Woolworths store. It arrived pre-set and already my daughter is obtaining great benefit from the machine.
I purchased my machine - MH800P from TENS Machines Australia (online) and have been very impressed with their service. Dispatch was within hours of order and per express post which was included in the purchase price.
The machine is on special and that made it affordable for me, I was guided by the many good reviews from various sources.
It is a combined TENS/EMS machine and for the purpose of pain relief it does an excellent job. I experience intermittend hip pain from having a fracture and now three pins in place. The muscles sometimes just...
Recommended super effective pain relief
13 years ago I was issued a tens machine by work cover so I expect it was costly. (went off work cover after 3 years).. I have used this machine ever since. nearly every night and when I drive long distances, this machine works overtime. I use it on just about every moving part from arms, shoulders, back, legs and to get pain relief after knee replacement (be careful not to put it too close to new knee replacement, just use above and below)
I highly recommend any version for pain relief. takes a little getting used to but better if you don't turn it up too far.
don't pay hundreds either. cheaper ones are just as effective
don't wait any longer...off you go
(make sure you can get replacement pads)
ALDI Tens machine
I have a Revitive machine with pads. I bought the ALDI Tens machine today from Aldi mt Barker S.A. and I have to say that in comparison to the Revitive, more convenient, flexible, more Customable and better. I paid $39.95 for it and it came with 8 pads, 2 leads, a good instruction book and lots of advice. It is not made in China at all but in Taiwan. The quality is excellent.

240mg Oxycontin user gets instant release
I am using 80mg of oxycontin a few times a day and my pain is my living hell even with strong opiates. I recently got introduced to this machine and can't believe I didn't hear about it over the years. Instant back pain gone. When your muscles are just in so much pain and are in complete spasm, thus device feels like a needle being stabbed I to the muscles to release the spasm and it works. Now instead of being in a holy after being on my feet for 60 seconds or bending down or sitting in a chair, iI simply put this on while I walk or do a...nything and the pain never appears because these don't let the muscle go into spasm or lock up. It is not painful but you can turn it up to make it get you stronger. . I now want this put in my back permanently as it has saved my future.
Absolutely the best thing I ever bought
I recently purchased (online) an Aus Physio Tens dual massager from AU Remedial. Great little machine. I have a lot of hip pain, and this little gadget makes it so that I can walk around easily after 20 minutes of use. The relief from the pain last for most of the day. I now don't need to take Panadol every few hours. The machine included everything you need to use it straight away. It uses 2 AAA batteries or you can use the usb cable and use it through your computer. You can even massage your feet with this little beauty. Worth every cent...of the $99.95 it cost. It was well packed and delivered very quickly I ordered it on the 20 Nov and received it with 7 days which isn't bad for a country area. I couldn't fault this company, great service and product all round.
Tens machine ALDI
I bought a TENS machine from Aldi for $ 50.00. I have rheumatoid arthritis for about 30 years. It slowly gets worse to a stage that starting walking after a rest was very painful. I am using this device now for 3 weeks and the pain is gone !!! Ankle is still stiff, but no pain. This machine is worth it weight in platinum. There are more expensive machines on the market, ones which also with a low frequency affect the muscles as a sort of massage which are available for about $170.00. But as pain relief the Aldi one is fantastic. Only the manual is not very helpfull but trough google one can get a lot of info how to use this device.
Gave instant pain relief
Aldi does give very litle as far as a manual is concerned.
Awesome little device!
I only discovered this device when a physio used it to treat me during one of my rehab sessions. I had badly torn a ligament in my ankle and my ankle would pulsate with pain for most of the day, even though I kept it elevated. When I attached the tens to my ankle, the feeling of pulsating pain turned into a soothing feeling, which is quite relaxing.
I also used this for a stiff neck which helps relax my shoulder muscles, etc
Instant pain relief, portable, relaxing to use. Small enough that it's not noticed when I use it at work
The pads can be a bit awkward to put on and off on the shoulders, but once it's there, it's good
Longer lasting relief....more people should know about this product
I have had neck and shoulder issues since a car accident more than 2 decades ago. Not a day would pass when I didn’t feel discomfort on my neck & shoulders. It is exacerbated even simply by cold weather.
I’ve spent money on remedial massage, physio, back, neck & shiatsu chair massage machines. Whilst these give relief from the pain, along with taking panadol (paracetamol), it isn’t long after that the pain resurfaces.
I have the ActivBody. Like with everything at first try, I was skeptical. First time I used it was during one of my more i...ntense neck pain days. You feel gentle tingling sensation and at first you wonder how it's going to be effective but you soon realize that the throbbing, stiffness & pain had minimized considerably. The relief came gradually so don’t expect it to be immediate. The great and more important thing for me is that the relief it gave was longer lasting. No panadol after treatment. No pain resurfacing after a couple of hours. It was longer lasting relief. I no longer have to "sleep-off" the pain. It was an aaaah moment. Hello world, I'm back! I have since tried it on other pains including my legs (like restless leg syndrome) & works wonders! The Tens machine alleviates the discomfort allowing me to sleep right through the night. My mom, who has had knee surgery, also uses Tens Machine!
Years of pain - instant relief.
This simple little electronic pain relief gadget was purchased as a last resort to hopefully releive painful aching muscles and joints in my hands, shoulders, back and legs. I have been using it for two months now and not as frequently over the last couple of weeks. It is compact (fits in any pocket), rechargeable (via charger or computer port) and extremely effective. I don't live in constant pain anymore and consider this to be one of the best buys of my life (I'm 60). Larger units are used by health professionals in doctors' surgeries, chiro...practic and physio practices and sports medicine centres. Ten out of ten for this TENS machine. It is seriously effective in muscle and joint pain control. Compact. Reliable. It offers a range of pulse modes. Modes are variable and graded from gentle to industrial strength.
