Wi-TENS Wireless TENS Machine for Pain Relief
Wi-TENS is a wireless TENS machine for effective and convenient pain relief and a relief of discomfort caused by muscular and joint soreness due to strain, exercise and overwork.
Wi-TENS controls pain non-invasively and without drugs. Wi-TENS generates gentle and soothing electrical currents and sends them through the skin to the nerves to stop the pain signal from reaching the bran, thus effectively reducing perception of pain. TENS therapy also stimulates production of body’s own pain killers (i.e. endorphins), enhancing body’s own ability to reduce and heal its own pain. Furthermore, TENS electrical currents improve blood flow and enhance circulation in the treated area, delivering more oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to cells and tissues.
Conditions that respond well to TENS pain relief therapy include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Post-Operative Pain, Post Amputation Pain, Back Pain, Lumbago, Sciatica, Whiplash, Sports Injuries, Neuralgia, Skeletal Pains, Muscle Aches, General Pain, Cancer Pain, Period Pain, Labour Pain, Muscle Tension.
Similarly to other TENS machines, the Wi-TENS does not cure the physiological or physical causes of pain, but it eliminates or reduces perception of pain, making you feel less discomfort and painful soreness and helping you to live enjoyable life.

Using the Wi-TENS
The Wi-TENS is simple to use.
The Wi-TENS kit consists of the 2 wireless TENS units (TENS A and TENS B) with self-adhesive skin electrodes and a remote control unit. You can use the Wi-TENS as a single TENS or as a pair of TENS machines.
Intensity on each of the wireless TENS (TENS A and TENS B) can be adjusted by pressing buttons + or – on the TENS machines or by using the remote controller. When using the remote controller, you can control the intensity of each machine individually or together. This means that you can receive a different intensity TENS on each machine or adjust them both to the same intensity level with one button.
Firstly instal 2 x 1.5 V AAA batteries in each of the wireless TENS units and in the remote control unit. Clip on the self-adhesive skin electrodes to the wireless TENS units. Each wireless TENS unit clips on to a single self-adhesive skin electrode, forming butterfly-like wireless TENS device.
You can use a single Wi-TENS with control unit or both Wi-TENS at the same time – depending on your needs. Each Wi-TENS unit has an independent intensity control (i.e. + and – buttons) or can be controlled directly from the remote control unit. The remote control unit is especially useful, when performing TENS treatment in difficult to reach body area or when moving is painful or restricted.
When using 2 mini Wi-TENS, it is possible to control the intensity levels separately on each machine – for instance in cases of treating pain in 2 entirely different body areas with different needs or control the intensity level on both mini TENS machines simultaneously to keep the same level of intensity on both. Intensity can be controlled by pressing the plus/minus buttons directly on the machines or using remote controller.
The Wi-TENS features one universal pre-set program of 30 minute duration.
The pre-set program is tri-phasic:
- Phase 1: 80/125 Hz frequency at 130 µs pulse width – 5 minutes duration
- Phase 2: 5 – 10 Hz frequency at 250 µs pulse width – 20 minutes duration
- Phase 3: 80/125 Hz frequency at 130 µs pulse width – 5 minutes duration
After completion of the 30 minutes treatment cycle, the Wi-TENS automatically turns off. Alternatively, you can turn the device off by continual pressing of the minus button on the Wi-TENS unit or pressing the ON/OFF button on the remote control.
TENS therapy is effective and safe. 30 minutes treatment session is normally sufficient to provide pain relief, however, you can repeat the treatment as frequently as you need.
To ensure longer life of the self-adhesive skin electrodes, ensure that the skin on the area to be treated is clean, free of natural oils and residues of moisturisers and dry. Simply wash the skin with mild soap and water, rinse and dry thoroughly. Special skin wipes, such as TENS Clean-Cote Skin Wipes are highly recommended to use prior to placing self-adhesive skin electrodes on the skin.
