Santamedical Tens Unit Review

About Santamedical Tens Unit
Santamedical PM-180 Rechargeable Tens Unit Electronic Pulse Massager is a compact, portable, micro-computer controlled device. It can be used in many areas in your body, including arms, neck and shoulders, back, low back, legs, feet, joints etc. It may help to relieve pain and numbness in the following situations: stiff neck, muscle pains from over-exercise or stretching, numbness from some chronic conditions, carpal-tunnel syndrome, relieve pain and relax muscle spasms, or may prevent muscle atrophy. Recharge the internal lithium battery to keep them powered up for massages.

My Husbands Experience
Whenever I go visit my chiropractor, my second favorite part (after my neck adjustment) is when my chiropractor puts the electronic pulse massager on my back with those hot and heavy towels. 
First of all, the unit is small and I was a little worried that it would be under-powered and was "shocked" to learn it was not. The initial "charge" didn't take too long and after I used I figured out that it will still run while it charges from the USB. The settings are easy to read. There are eight modes and they have a tiny graphic on the screen. I found the few settings I liked and steered clear of others (the needle icon) that were really painful. The attachment pads feel kinda weird at first, but I got used to them after a few days. (Yeah, I'm using this thing everyday!)
PROS: Easy to use interface and pretty powerful!
On the other hand, the build quality feels cheap. The plastic case reminds me of a 1980's Soundwave Transformer. The wires that plug into the unit (like a headphone jack) started to fail after a week. I have to fiddle with the wire to keep the electrodes working.
CONS: Feels cheap, wires low quality. Maybe I got a bad set.

I am pretty happy, and I've been using this device everyday since the middle of October. I've used it on my back, neck and hamstrings. I wish it worked on my feet, but there aren't too many muscles there. BTW, don't put the pads on your temples hoping to recreate a head massage! At the lowest setting I thought my fillings were going to explode!

You can purchase a Santamedical Tens Unit here.

I received the product mentioned above at a reduced price in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
