[Costco] Omron Electrotherapy Pain relief $74.99

Just try this little device. Feel quite good for me. It's 99.99$ on Amazon, not sure at 74.99$ is a good deal or not.

I've been thinking about getting a TENS device for a long time to help with my back pain. Bought, will try it out! Thanks OP.

Interesting, thanks. So it just shoots electrical signals to try and relax muscles? I wonder if these or your physically rotating/kneading massagers are better.

Works off AAA batteries, I wonder if it just blows through them. Can anyone comment?

I have a model bought on eBay that came from China. I paid less than $10 four of five years ago.

Tens works very well for me. My unit also requires AA batteries. I haven't had to change them since I got it. However, most treatments are 15 to 20 minutes and you don't need it every day.

The batteries seem to last quite a few sessions. I am going to guess 30 to 50 sessions (15 minutes) depending on the intensity set.

I use NiMH rechargeables. I also picked up a tube of the electrode gel, the type used by physio/ ultrasound. Makes it buzz a lot better.

My unit is older, only goes up to 10 but purchased here at Costco too.

The replacement pads are not cheap. Anybody know how often they need replacing?

Just checking if these kind of devices are covered under benefits from employment, does anyone have experience or any idea? Thanks

I bought a wireless one from iReliev (US site) and submitted thru Sunlife with doctor’s prescription for chronic back pain. Sunlife did conversion and covered 80%.

tens therapy is not as simple as they make it out. it gave me no benefit for minor stuff, it can help with things related to nerve endings, but it can also make it worse. nothing beats the sun's rays for muscle and bone related pains.

There's a couple of "standardized" connectors that most manufacturers use. If Omron uses one of these you can get pads and cables very cheaply from Aliexpress. If not, you're stuck buying expensive proprietary pads.
