The iTENS is a modern day electrotherapy device that merges wearable technology with the effective and lasting pain relief of a TENS unit. No prescription is needed for this approved over-the-counter, drug-free way to combat pain. The iTENS merges the proven pain relief of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) with technology of your smart phone via Bluetooth.
The ultra-thin, lightweight and flexible wings make the iTENS almost undetectable under clothing. A robust selection of program options can then be controlled by your smart phone.
How Does iTENS Work
If you are a person who is really into fitness then you can relate to fitness injuries. Anywhere from muscle pain to pulling muscles can slow you down and really hold you back from reaching your full potential in the gym and your fitness life. Even if you are not into fitness, you can and do still encounter everyday injuries.
iTENS is a new modern day electrotherapy device that is completely controlled by your phone. This is different than the ones on the market because you have a dedicated electrotherapy device with no cords that is applied to the part of the body with pain. The iTENS device is the world’s first FDA-cleared, true wireless TENS therapy device that is controlled with an IOS or Android based app.
Does It Work?
Since I usually workout 6 out of the 7 days of the week, I occasionally will be sore or will pull something. Sadly, when this happens it slows me down and doesn’t allow me to perform to the best of my ability while in the gym. When this happens I usually just turn to icing my body and taking some aspirin and hope the pain and soreness goes away before I get to the gym. Unfortunately this rarely happens.
So when I was told that I would be able to review something that lets me put two of my favorite interests together AND help me get rid of my soreness, I was pretty enthusiastic about it, but at the same time pretty skeptical. I have seen these types of electroshock products at seminars before and I have to say they have caused me way more pain than relief. What makes this one a lot different is you can control the power straight from your phone, so tuning down the shock is pretty quick and easy.
When I tried this I was only sore from a heavy lift. I slapped this one, pinpointed the part of my body that it was on, my pain level, and I started turning up the shock levels! After 30 minutes of use I have to say I wasn’t in much pain anymore and I felt my muscles were a lot more loose and no longer tight.
I kept this going for about a week and I was quick to realize that this thing works. If you’re looking to get rid of soreness than this is a really good option. As far as puling muscles, I cannot vouch for because I obviously didn’t have one to test its ability.
Like I said above, I was excited to use this but I also have my doubts on whether or not it would actually work. After using it for a week straight on the same muscle that was sore, I was pleasantly surprised that it went away and helped my muscles loosen up. If you are looking for something to help muscle soreness than I truly believe that this is something that could really help in that situation. Check out the device here!
