NORWELL, Mass. — Carex Health Brands on Thursday introduced AccuRelief Pain Relief Systems, a line of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy FDA–approved for full-body, over–the–counter use.
A pain-abatement technology, TENS devices work to block the nerve pathway from transmitting pain signals from the pain site to the brain while simultaneously increasing endorphin production.
“Unlike our competition, our electrotherapy products are born out of a long history of prescription–only and professional TENS devices used and prescribed by physical therapists and chiropractors,” stated Jeff Swain, director of marketing at Carex Health Brands. “Now, due to the FDA’s allowance for over-the-counter sale of TENS devices without a prescription, we’re able to utilize our expertise to provide well-deserved pain relief to the masses in a non-prescription device.” Swain also noted that AccuRelief is a complete line of TENS therapy devices with a “good, better, best” product offering from economy to clinical grade units.
The AccuRelief family consists of four different devices providing a variety of options and price points:
- The AccuRelief Mini TENS Device, a compact TENS unit that delivers targeted and effective pain relief (MSRP: $29.99);
- The AccuRelief Single Channel TENS Device, a unit that allows the user to choose from six pre-set body programs (MSRP: $39.99);
- The AccuRelief Dual Channel TENS Device, a unit with dual-channel functionality similar to prescription units that is able to treat large, complex body parts like the lower back or shoulder (MSRP: $49.99); and
- The AccuRelief Wireless Remote Control TENS Device, a wireless compact electrical TENS unit for those hard-to-reach areas using a remote control (MSRP: $89.99).
Carex also offers a full line of AccuRelief replenishment supplies designed to work specifically with each of the AccuRelief device.
