FEATURES AND PROGRAMS

One of the most popular features of the iReliev Wireless TENS + EMS is its wireless capability. The wireless system uses RF (Radio Frequency) technology similar to the remote control of your television, so you can use the device anytime, anywhere. Since the device uses RF to operate, you won’t need an internet connection or Bluetooth to use it.

The iReliev Wireless offers 8 TENS programs for pain relief (including a program FDA cleared Arthritis mode) along with 6 EMS programs to help with muscle warm-up, endurance, and recovery. This model comes with 25 levels of adjustable intensity, and despite being wireless, has the same prescription strength output that iReliev’s wired units have.

Expandable Wireless Receiver Pods

One of the unique features that sets the iReliev Wireless System apart from its competitors is the ability to expand the system. While the device comes with two wireless pods, the system can be expanded to run up to 20+ pods at one time.

Custom Pod/Channel Configuration

Each pod comes pre-set or paired as channel 1 (CH1) so the pods will run in unison. However, you can customize the pairing of each pod to be its own isolated channel, so the pods will be controlled separately instead of in unison. This allows you to run different programs and intensity levels on each pod tailored to your needs. The hand control supports up to four channels (CH1 – CH4)

Rechargeability

The wireless remote and receiver pods are both rechargeable. The system comes with a charging cable and adaptor so both the remote and pods can be charged as needed. Each pod will run 3-5 hours on a full charge and the remote will run up 10 hours before needing a charge.

Size and Portability

The system is very light and compact, the remote is 4.3” in height by 1.75” in width and only 0.65 in depth. The wireless receiver pods are 2.35” in diameter x 0.5” in depth and only weighs 1.1 oz each.

Backlit Display Screen

The wireless remote has a back-lit display screen to help see the display screen while using your device both day and night.
