If you’re familiar with TENS and EMS devices, you know that there are quite a few different options in the HiDow catalog. It can be difficult to decide which one is best for you to use! Well, there are quite a few different options depending on what kind of use you need to get out of your TENS unit.

Today, let’s look at which TENS unit is best suited for at-home use.

Wired TENS Devices

Just because some TENS devices are wired, doesn’t mean that they aren’t on the cutting edge of TENS therapy. Here are a few wired TENS devices that are incredible for at-home use.

XP Micro

If you’re passionate about pain relief and muscle stimulation, but you want a TENS unit that is simple and easy to use, then this is the perfect TENS device for you. The XP Micro is a small and affordable TENS device that offers all of the pain relief that you could need. It uses dual output channels to allow for up to 4 electrode pads for treatment on multiple areas. While this device is wired, it is small enough that transporting it is easy enough.

XPD 12

It has a lot of features and it is only a little bigger than the rest, but it is still highly portable. The XPDS 18 also has 2 output channels for treating multiple areas at home while you exercise. The pros of this device are more Mode options, but the technology is not far off from that of the XPD 12. Still very easy to use at home without b

Pro-Touch 6 12

Using wireless TENS and EMS devices is incredibly comfortable and convenient. Whether you are working out at home or simply sitting down while you alleviate pain. The Pro Touch may be the ultimate TENS and EMS device to use at home. Because of the comfort that the wireless receivers allow.
