I love my TENS/EMS device that I have. I do have one concern about this one. It looks like the electrode pads are connected by snaps. On most devices the electrodes are connecte through “pins”. Do these require propriatory replacement electrodes?
Be careful to check the unit’s display when you get it - The last tens item I purchased from woot came with the incorrect -Chinese- display, and as unsafe as it was, woot would only give me a couple of dollars credit, even though there was no way to use it… When asked if they could send a different unit instead, they said nope! Real classy experience to get my $40… And I’ve purchased over 200 woots in the last four years…
I’ve owned several TENS units. This one works great and it’s the best of all I’ve tried. All of them have used the snap type connectors. I’ve never seen the pin type that guy is talking about. As part of this deal IQ will offer you a special deal on replacement pads. They’re OK but you can get them a lot cheaper at Amazon.
Sansa’s would be great!I should give you my phone number, in case those ever come up.
I was actually checking out this thread to see if anyone was investigating trans-crainial stimulation with these. Radiolab, (a very cool podcast) looked into some research using these kind of things for brain smarteners. (‘9 volt nirvana’) I’m not going to be a guinea pig though. And, never trust a post that uses the word ‘smarteners’.
Sounds like a job for a PayPal refund request. Their purchase protection would cover this. In addition, instructions in a different language would violate their right to sell it in the USA (see http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/cdrh_docs/pdf14/k141260.pdf) where the FDA has set forth "requirements for annual registration, listing of devices, good manufacturing practice, labeling, and prohibitions against misbranding … that device labeling must be truthful and not misleading.
An advertisement in to an English speaking audience in an English speaking country for a device that has instructions on screen in a different language would certainly violate these provisions.
I’m the same size and the sandals fit me OK, they are somewhat adjustable with the velcro strap and you want a snug fit. That being said I find using the pads easier even on the feet since you would have more mobility as the sandals really aren’t something you’d want to walk a lot in… I bought more pads from Amazon from ‘Heatnclick’, they appear identical to the IQ brand. Also from Amazon some Spectra 360 Electrode Gel for better conductivity as the pad surface becomes irregular from body hair etc
