IMPORTANT - These TENS Electrode Pads are for the Fuego Heated TENS Unit only!
Improved Technology : The new Fuego TENS Unit combines the pain relieving technology of TENS with soothing healing heat. New heating electrodes concentrate a penatrating warmth where you need it most, directly on your treatment area. This unit is ideal for upper back, lower back, neck, arms, legs, or just about anywhere you are experiencing pain and discomfort. Digital control over 9 treatment modes, tempurature and treatment time, gives you full control over each theraputic session.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive, drugfree method of controlling pain. TENS Units use tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain, allowing for a return to normal activity. In many people, the reduction or elimination of pain lasts longer than the actual period of stimulation (sometimes as much as three to four times longer). In others, pain is modified while stimulation actually occurs.
This FDA Approved TENS Unit is both Safe and Effective. The new Fuego TENS Unit overrides the pain signal to the brain. by sending a comfortable electronic impulse. When the new Fuego TENS Unit overrides the pain signal, it "tricks" the brain into thinking their is NO PAIN. This produces Fast and Rapid Pain Relief, usually within a minute or two. You can control and customize the intensity, pulse rate, and pulse width to "experiment" and find the best setting for your pain relief.

Note: With proper care, electrodes can be reused for over 20 applications. We recommend purchasing Pre-TENS electrode spray, additional electrodes and rechargeable batteries with your tens unit.
Low Frequency: The lower frequencies, 2-5 Hz, are believed to cause the body to react. The reaction creates natural painkillers, or endorphins. The endorphins block the pain naturally and while popular, this isn't the usual method of using TENS.
High Frequency: For more intense pain, higher frequencies, 90-130 Hz, work to actually interrupt those pain signals being sent to the brain. This is the most common use for the machine and while you start slow, it's not uncommon to need to up the frequency to find the best block.
