The HiDow is one of the best TENS units currently available on the market. This TENS machine produces a complex set of bio-electrical signals that will allow you to customize your pain management therapy.
Features and Programs
One of the advantages of using the HiDow TENS unit is that it comes with 12 predefined massage modes. Alternating the massage modes will allow you to personalize your massage experience according to your therapy. Each of them can be used separately or in various combinations, so you can change your massage session every time you use the TENS machine.
Another advantage is that this model comes with predefined massage combinations. For example, the grabbing and tapping massage techniques are combined in an interesting way, and the resulting program is the “ramping wave” you can access in the eighth massage mode. This program will break up the muscular toxins and lactic acid accumulated in your muscles, and it will facilitate your muscle contraction. The program goes through a cycle of 5 therapeutic sensations that will allow your muscles to relax.
A great thing about this TENS unit is that it comes with a dual output feature. This will allow you to use not 2, but 4 pads at the same time. You can place every pair of pads on different parts of your body and select a different massage mode and intensity for every pair.
This TENS unit’s control panel is easy to understand and use. Most people will figure out what each button does before reading the instructions manual. However, we strongly advise you to read the manual because it offers important information about the ideal placement of the pads and the care and maintenance of the TENS machine.
The HiDow TENS unit comes with a built-in lithium battery. You will have to charge the battery before the first use, but once you start using it, you can recharge it wherever you want. You can use the TENS unit for up to a week with a single charge. You can adjust the unit’s timer to turn off in 10 – 60 minutes.
A good thing about this machine is that it comes with both a wall charger and a USB cable. This will allow you to recharge the unit wherever you want, whether it’s at home using the charger, or at the office using the USB cable.
The HiDow comes with 2 sets of pads. One set is smaller than the other, and you can use it to target specific areas of your body. The pads are reusable, and you can use them for up to 200 massages or more, depending on how careful you are when handling them and if you follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
