READ the warnings about not placing it across your head, etc. Can cause seizures if zapping the wrong places., according to the IB for one I saw.

Have one of the earlier models - only 4 contact points instead of the 12 on this belt. Controller is different, also. No information given on how many waveforms the controller can produce; the other one can deliver 8 different modulations.
Otherwise, same comment as in all previous woots: makes a hell of an adult toy when the belt/pads are replaced with probes, bands, clips, etc. Connectors are not standard, but there are converters that allow use of most electrodes with most boxes. My favorite is the 'sound' electrode.
As always, S.S.C. practices are encouraged!

This might work for muscle pain, but do not use it if you suffer from fibromyalgia--this device will make it worse!

Yes, I don't use it often, but just by coincedence I used it yesterday to great results. My back had been nagging me all week & I finally had had enough & so pulled out my TENS unit. I agree with others here that it is very important to keep it tight to your skin. (and somewhat difficult to do) The way I accomplish this is to simply lay down on my bed. An hour later I was unbelievably better. That allowed me to relax and get some good sleep, which IMHO is 1/2 the battle on back pain.
