Storage & Care
Cleaning the electrode pad’s gel surface after use prolongs the pad’s adhesion. Moisten the gel with a drop of water and allow it to dry before replacing the electrode pad back onto the protective film.
Store the electrode pad on the protective plastic film, in a cool, dry place.
Do not remove the electrode pad from the skin if the TENS device is operational.
Replace the electrode pad when it is no longer adhesive, cracks or becomes discoloured.
TENS therapy should be avoided, unless first approved by your doctor, in the following groups:
- People with heart problems or who are fitted with a pacemaker or with another type of electrical or metal implant
- Pregnant women should avoid using TENS devices in the first trimester of pregnancy.
- Those with epilepsy, as applying electrodes to the head or neck areas may induce seizures.
- People who are being treated for or have symptoms of deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
