[box-rate imgcode=”81I3YS%2BrOML” imgalt=”HealthmateForever® T40AB TENS Unit” amzrate=”5″ edrate=”5″]

The HealthmateForever® T40AB has a 6-inch backlit touch screen with an extra-large LCD display. This unit has 40 modes and is the latest and greatest device from this company. It is available in black or white and is Class II FDA (Food and Drug Administration) compliant. This means you do not need a prescription to purchase it.

The PMS (Powered Muscle Stimulator) and EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulator) do almost the same thing. Do not let the terms confuse you. EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) is known as NMES (Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation). This is the involvement of muscle contraction using electrical impulses. This method for pain reduction has received much interest in the past years because it works! TENS stands for (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) and is geared towards nerve related pain conditions.

The 40 modes allow you to select your lower back coccyx, mid lumbar back area, back of the neck with this small hand-held unit. You will receive a chart for all the areas and modes. The unit’s digital screen shows them as well.

This marvelous unit merges the ancient Chinese methods with today’s technology where you can select from different massage modes, time, and intensity to have it the best way you like it. Another great feature, and there are many, is that the included lithium battery is rechargeable and will last up to 10 hours of continuous use.

Being small and compact, it can be taken with you in your purse or pocket and to Europe, Asia, and countries outside of the USA.

Here is what you get with the device:

  • 11-piece self-adhesive conductive gel pads—reusable
  • 2 large rectangle pads
  • 8 hand-shaped pads
  • 1 long strip pad

Attach the self-adhesive gel pads to various muscle groups or individual areas that are sore and aching. The two outputs let you treat two different areas at the same time with different modes and intensity levels—all with this one device. No creams or gels are needed with the self-adhesive gel pads.

Set the adjustable timer from 10- to 80-minutes. There are 20 levels in the adjustable mode. Intensity is controlled in the A1, A2, B1, and B2 channels. The 4 outputs provide 100% power for each with no reduction in strength. You can attach 2 to 12 pads to different areas at the same time.

Using bioelectricity (bio-body) expertise the unit sends electrical impulses to your muscles via the electrode pads that conduct the electricity in milliamps. Your muscles then relax, contract, and relax again through the pads. By rhythmically relaxing and contracting, you will experience soothing massage effects that imitate a massage therapist’s hands.

The TENS/EMS devices use a square wave pattern to work directly on the muscle motor neurons for effective treatment. This is founded on research done by Michael Faraday (1791-1867), the scientist who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism, electrochemistry, electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism, and electrolysis. Both of these devices are widely used in hospitals and sports clinics worldwide. The HealthmateForever® products combine the technology of these two separate devices into one safe, portable unit that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. This allows you to reduce pain, stimulate your nerves and muscles, and relax your body anywhere at any time. Placing the electrode pads on the pressure points will give you instant relaxation and pain relief.
