TENS UnitsTechnically TENS units are another term  that pulse massagers are called. Both of these terms all mean the exact same type of electrical medical device which uses the Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation theory. However, what exactly is TENS? What is the definition of TENS? It is defined in TheFreeDictionary.com as “A technique used to relieve pain in an injured or diseased part of the body in which electrodes applied to the skin deliver intermittent stimulation to surface nerves, blocking the transmission of pain signals.” So a TENS unit, which I have been calling a Pulse Massager, works not by somehow somehow soothing muscles but by blocking pain signals which go from the nerve endings to the brain so that the brain can’t register that there is pain coming from a region in the body. This type of device is doing something to cover up pain However we know that pain is not always a bad thing. Technically the reason why any living creature would be experiencing pain so to alert the brain and the body that it is being injured or that something is physically causing the body harm. Pain is the signal that goes to the brain to tell it to react to the pain causing stimuli. The brain is then supposed to tell the body to move or react in a way to stop the pain. Avoiding pain is one of the major things that any living organism does. This is why TENS Units are so helpful and useful to any person who wants to find a solution to their pain.

A Complete Listing Of All The TENS Unit Models

TENS 7000 Unit – Price: $50

TENS 7000 Tens UnitDescription: The TENS 7000 Pain Management TENS Unit is one of the most well known TENS units because it have been used by hundreds of thousand of people ever since it came out years ago. This was the first model beyond the popular models which we found. It was also the first model which we discovered being made by Roscoe Medical aka Current Solutions. They have been making electrical current emitting devices for decades now. Over the years, it has become one of the gold standards for which other companies which design newer models of TENS units strive for… Read more

TENS 7000 BV Medical Electronic Pulse Massager – Price: $375

TENS 7000 BV Medical Electronic Pulse MassagerDescription: Sometimes we make mistakes when we first start out and we made a mistake when we first looked at this model. At the time this model was sold by a supplier called BV Medical. After time went one, we realized that this model is just the TENS 7000 Unit from Roscoe medical but under a different distributor, which uses a different brand and private labeled everything. To get a more extensive and more complete review on this model, you can read the things we said about it available here. If you still are interested in the model, Read more

TENS 3000 Unit – Price: $37

TENS 3000 ReviewDescription: This model is the TENS 3000 Unit. We are not sure if this was a previous model that Roscoe Medical came out before the TENS 7000 but based on what we have found out about it in just recent months, it seems that the model may be from the same company. They have the same form, with the older look. Because of the way that the analog controllers are set up, it is kind of easy to accidentally press down on the turn dials, and increase the electrical current amplitude, accidentally shocking you. The designers of the model were clever enough to realize this so there is also the additional feature of having what are known as ‘safety amplitude caps’… Read more

truMedic PL-009 TENS Unit Massager – Price: $54

truMedic-PL-009-TENS-UnitDescription: Update: 10/1/2014 – It has come to our attention that the model that TruMedic has been dramatically improved upon from the previous models that were sold before. We got in contact with the suppliers of this particular model and found out that the model that they sell are the improved version, with a much better quality. That is why of all the models of pulse massagers & tens units that are sold on the Amazon website, this has been consistently the highest rated and most reviewed product of this category by a huge difference even from the 2nd place product….If we look at the specs on this model, the descriptions say the same thing as the product page from the Prospera PL009 Pulse Massager page – Read more

Prospera Pl-009 TENS Unit – Price: $35

Prospera-PL009Description: This type of electrical pulse massager from the well known and respected Prospera Corporation is not be intended to be used for pathologies or medical uses actually. It is actually used for people who experience muscle soreness and tension from doing extensive amounts of athletics or physical activity. The most likely medical professional who would be using it on their clients would be sports therapists and physical therapists, who use it in a rehabilitation therapy form. However, more than likely it is also going to be picked up by the regular consumer to use on at home. The TENS units are defined by their ability to help treat pain by blocking the electrical signals which travel up the body to the brain to alert the brain about pain signals – Read more

InTENSity 10 (TENS Unit)– Price: $22

InTENSity TENS unitDescription: The company Current Solutions makes this specific model of TENS unit called the InTENsity 10, which apparently has 10 modes which makes it one of the TENS Units which we have seen with the most options for the types of massages we are interested in trying out. The company that sells this model is Current Solutions, which seems to focus exclusively on selling TENS Units and the electrode pads that they use. I personally have been aware of… Read more

Chattanooga Intelect NMES Digital Portable Electrotherapy Device – Price: $102

Chattanooga Intelect NMES Digital Portable Electrotherapy DeviceDescription: Besides the bigger players in the EMS and TENS unit market, there are some less well known companies and designers who sell the same types of products. One of the smaller pulse massager sellers is Chattanooga. Chattanooga sells and has a smaller selection of TENS Units which they call Portable Digital Electrotherapy Device. The company of Chattanooga Medical Supplies has a product page for this specific model, which they call both the Intelect NMES Digital… Read more

Santamedical Electronic Pulse Massager LFM-110 – Price: $30

Santamedical Electronic Pulse MassagerDescription: We recently found out that there is supposedly a new brand and type of electronic pulse massagers that have come out and the company that sells the device is called Santamedical or Santa Medical. The product number for the pulse massager is the LFM-110. So we decided to do the Santamedical Electronic Pulse Massager LFM-110 Review to see how it compares to the previous electronic pulse massagers that we have already seen before… Read more

ReBuilder 2407 – Price: $760

ReBuilder 2407Description: The ReBuilder 2407 is a new device which we have not seen before but has the modes which allows it to use both the TENS and EMS technology. It is sold by a company called ReBuilder Medical Inc. The device is not really termed a TENS Unit or Electrotherapy device. It is used to treat neuropathy. The term “neuropathy” is actually a shortened version of the medical term “Peripheral Neuropathy” (source). The term Peripheral Neuropathy is defined by the Mayo Clinic website as the… Read more

ReBuilder 300 – Price: $510

ReBuilder 300Description: After we did the Rebuilder 2407 Review we realized that the company Rebuilder actually calls the 2407 model another name, the ReBuilder Deluxe. This model, the Rebuilder 300 is apparently the original, weaker model. This is the Rebuilder 300 review which we realize needed to be written to help any potential buyer from distinguishing between the two Rebuilder TENS Unit models. From looking at the actual ReBuilder website, we see that it has a lower number because it lacks certain features which… Read more

Ultima Neuro Neuropathy Treatment System – Price: $138

Ultima Neuro Neuropathy Treatment SystemDescription: This neuropathy pain treatment product , called the Ultima Neuro Neuropathy Treatment System, is one of the most interesting TENS Unit like products that we have seen so far. It is very similar to the peripheral neuropathy pain relief devices we have seen with the ReBuilder models like theRebuilder 300 and the Rebuilder 2407. What makes this model different from the others is that with the entire neuropathy pain treatment kit, there is included… Read more

Drive AGF-3E Economy Dual Channel TENS Unit – Price: $38

Drive AGF-3E Economy Dual Channel TENS UnitDescription: This model of TENS Unit is labeled the AGF-3E, or the Drive AGF-3E Economy Dual Channel TENS Unit. It is another model sold by the company Roscoe Medical, which is very big in this field of pain relief devices known as electrotherapy devices. This model has a strange model name, which is just a combination of letters and numbers, not like the TENS 7000 and TENS 3000. In terms of appearance, it actually sort of looks like the other models that come from the same company… Read more

Roscoe Medical Dual Channel TENS-1000BN – Price: $40

Roscoe Medical Dual Channel Tens Unit 1000Description: We have already done reviews on the TENS 7000, the TENS 3000, and TENS 6000. This is the TENS-1000BN Review. Some sellers call this model the TENS-1000, not the 1000BN. Roscoe Medical is a company that makes some of the best TENS Units and IF Therapy devices around. For this model, it is a dual channel device which has only 1 mode to it. We note that it is one of the oldest models of electrotherapy device that we have seen so far… Read more

Beautyko Accupulser Pro Electronic Pulse Massager HG6838 – Price: $99

Beautyko Accupulser Pro Accupressure Trigger Point Electronic Pulse Stimulation MassagerDescription: Back when we were first starting out, we were reviewing product which we didn’t realize were being sold under multiple different names. This product, which has the official name of “Accupulser Pro Trigger Point Electronic Pulse Stimulation Massager” has already been reviewed by us before. We had called it the “Electro-Acupressure Stimulator” which was sold by a company or seller calling themselves JT-05. We now realize that the product was renamed to be… Read more

Roscoe Medical Pro Dual Channel Tens Unit 6000 – Price: $55

Roscoe Medical Pro Dual Channel Tens Unit 6000Description: This model known as the TENS 6000. It seems to be modeled in the same way as the models which we have reviewed before by Roscoe Medical. Those models would be TENS 3000 and TENS 7000. Based on our first impression, it doesn’t seem to be as feature rich and powerful as the others. Does it also have the ability to lt you adjust analog knobs to change the pulse width, pulse frequency, and intensity? We will see how well it does compared to the other models that are more popular… Read more

EQ Pulse Massager – Price: $79

EQ Pulse MassagerDescription: This model called the EQ Pulse Massager makes us remember back to the IQ Massager Pro (and IQ Massager Pro II) which looks a lot like this model here. However when we did the initial research on seeing what is said about this particular model, there seems to be more information on the EQ Pulse Massager than we believed. It seems that the EQ Massager is a very popular model which we didn’t realize existed until very recently… Read more

Veridian Healthcare 22-030 Tiny Tens Electric Massager – Price: $30

Veridian Healthcare 22-030 Tiny Tens Electric MassagerDescription: This model which is called the Tiny TENS Electrical Nerve Stimulator seems to be one of those devices which are being resold in many online stores under different names. This seems to be a very common practice among resellers and middle men who sell electrotherapy devices or EMS Units. Sometimes we are not sure what is the real name of a device since there are so many different variations of it. As for this model, it is most often called the Tiny Tens. The Tiny part obviously refers to how small the device is. The Tens part refer to the fact that the device operates… Read more (or read the 2nd review of the Veridian Tiny TENS Electrical Nerve Stimulator)

Intelect Standard Dual Channel TENS Nerve Stimulator – Price: $82

Intelect Standard Dual Channel TENS Nerve StimulatorDescription: This model which is called the Intelect Standard Dual Channel TENS Nerve Stimulator seems to have been labeled both a TENS Unit and a Nerve Stimulator. We wanted to try to find the model from the original source to see what are the product description and specifications. We found from a quick Google Search that the Intelect TENS is sold on the ActiveForever website. On that website it is sold as two different products, with different names. They are… Read more

Omron Electronic Nerve Stimulator HV-F128-E – Price: $208

Omron Electronic Nerve Stimulator HV-F128Description: This device is labeled a completely different name, Electronic Nerve Stimulator. It is neither a pulse massager or a TENS Unit. However we understand that the labels are all referring to the same type of medical pain relief device. The pain relief devices operate on the idea of sending electric current aka signals in an intermittent fashion to product some type of muscular and neurological effect… Read more (or read the review on the exact same model relabeled the Eleparesu Therapy Apparatus HV-F128)

Fuego Heating TENS Unit – Price: $60

Fuego TENS UnitDescription: We found this device called the Fuego Heating TENS Unit only recently. This model sold by Fuego is unique for the feature of it being able to also use heat as a form of pain relief therapy treatment. The device is often called the Digital Heating TENS by Fuego. We found the model sold on the website OTC Wholsale. We also got the Heating TENS Unit Operating Manual. There is a total of 9 different massage modes, which correspond to 9 different areas of the body to stimulate. It combines together the usual type of nerve stimulation with the heating benefits for a even greater ability for pain alleviation – Read more
