The TechCare combination SM, TENS, and PMS massager is not a machine. The ASIN B01M5FZ5EY on Amazon.com® is a choice unit with so many superb features. I use mine generally each day to get rid of tension headaches working on my laptop and lower back pain from sitting for hours on end to relax me. You can set the timer to the minutes you want, it will automatically shut off, and you can set it again if you want more time. You can wear it all day if you want to. It is wireless because you don’t need to sit close to it plugged into the wall. The unit and cords can go where you go.
It is a small device about the size of a cell phone for easing muscle and nerve pain fast.
The first thing people who are new to these devices want to know is, What do those acronym letters stand for? I will tell you to clarify those capital letters that perplex almost everyone.
TENS: Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator
EMS: Electrical Muscle Stimulator
EMS/PMS: Electric/Powered Muscle Stimulator
SM: Smooth Muscle
All TENS EMS/PMS units are Class II FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved to ensure safety and security for the user. The TechCare unit has 24 preprogrammed modes of tapping, acupuncture, deep tissue, foot, cupping, and combination. It has 2 cables and each cable has 2 electrodes with a total of 6 pair of electrodes.
You can see intensity levels on the ascending/descending bar graph. The 20 intensity levels from a soft gentle massage type feeling to so strong I cannot do for my skinny muscles is fantastic! The pulses are low-voltage to stimulate the area needing pain relief. You can use it for about 20-hours without recharging. Set the device for 20-minutes and each time you press the “T” button, it will add 20 minutes to your therapy session. Do that each time you want more time.
A blue LED (light emitting diode) illuminates the control screen turning off after you have set your functions to save the power just like some cell phones do.
These units are used on patients by doctors, chiropractors, physical and massage therapists for sports injuries to target acute and chronic pain. Used in sports clinics and hospitals, you will know this product is effective and safe to use ending your need for pain medication.

The built-in lithium battery recharges if left in while using, or when removed from your skin, plugged into the wall outlet.
The A/C (alternating current) adapter plugs into a USA, Canada, or Mexico 110/120-Volt, 50/60 Hz outlet. In other countries you will need to buy a 220/240-Volt adapter to use the unit. It does not have a car adapter.
Note: If you have diabetes or foot neuropathy, check with your doctor before using. Do not use if you have a pacemaker or any implanted metal screws, plates, or devices. Do not use when pregnant without consulting with your OB/GYN doctor.
