Freedom For You, Relief For Your Back: WiTouch Wireless TENS Machine
Physical therapists often wire you up to a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machine for 20 to 30 minutes when you suffer from muscle or joint pain. The wires and pads on your body make you feel like you're on Frankenstein's table, but TENS does ease your pain.
Portable TENS gadgets have been produced for home use, but they still require dealing with the wires and pads that attach to your skin and that is an even bigger pain than the one in your back. So a smart company in Chattanooga, TN, Hollywog, has invented the first wireless TENS machine: the WiTouch.
WiTouch is a winner of the prestigious 2013 Red Dot Design Award. Not only is the WiTouch wireless, but you can wear its TENS pad on your skin all day and engage it whenever needed. As you can see, the pads are shaped for back areas specifically, but probably can be used on other areas if you don't move around too much.
If the pads are placed on your spine, you can engage the WiTouch while lying down, sitting, or moving gently, just by clicking the switch on the WiTouch remote control. One session is pre-set to run for 30 minutes and the stimulation is programmed to vary from 5 minutes at light, 20 minutes at heavier, and 5 minutes back to llight.
The WiTouch Wireless Tens Machine is sold on Amazon.com. It comes with the TENS pad, remote control, cover pads (5 pairs), and necessary batteries. Each pad should last for 3 - 5 uses. Replacement pads are also available at Amazon. TheWiTouch has excellent customer reviews.
