LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Omron Healthcare on Tuesday announced the release of its new Pain Relief Pro electroTHERAPY unit. Its versatility delivers more settings and more power for more relief with 10 power levels and eight pre-set modes.
Electrotherapy TENS units are a prescription-free pain relief option recommended by professionals and favored by a growing number of acute and chronic pain sufferers. TENS, which stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, uses gentle pulses to stimulate nearby nerves and is thought to scramble pain messages to the brain, stimulate the production of endorphins (the body’s natural pain reliever) and improve blood circulation.
“We developed the new Pain Relief Pro with our customers in mind. They wanted more options for every day pain management. The result is a small but powerful device that’s simple to use and easily customized for quick relief,” said Maureen Perou, senior product manager, Omron Healthcare. “With an intuitive design that has more pain modes, power levels of intensity and now a massage feature, this smartphone sized unit can be the difference between staying home in bed or getting up and getting out of the house.”
The new Pain Relief Pro includes five pre-set pain modes (arm, lower back, leg, foot and joint) and three massage modes (tap, knead, rub) to target the most common problem spots. Ten power levels of intensity allow users to create a personalized experience.
The Pain Relief Pro will be selling for a suggested retail price of $69.99.
