TENS machines on Amazon
1) Dual Channel TENS EMS Unit, A/B dual channels with 24 modes, 10 pads and 20 level intensity and time control. Rechargeable lithium battery-- up to 20 hours of continuous use. It doesn’t come with the lumbar or feet pads that I showed in the video. https://amzn.to/3wlv0zc
2) Slipper shoes for most TENS snap-on units. https://amzn.to/3mQNPHp
3) This is the same maker of my TENS machine, however, I bought mine about 10 years ago, and this one does not include the lumbar belt or the slipper shoes. It seems that the machine is very similar to mine and does all the features that I demonstrated in the video. https://amzn.to/3wlQ4Wv
