TENS Machine Maintenance Guide
Our high quality TENS and TENS/EMS combination machines only require very little maintenance to keep them operating efficiently. Follow these simple instructions and your TENS unit will stay in top condition:
Take care of the electrode pads by cleaning and preparing your skin before you use them, and storing them correctly between uses. You can find more detailed information about caring for your electrode pads on our TENS Pads page. We also supply a full range of TENS replacement pads when it comes time to replace them.
Remove the leads from your TENS unit when you’re not using it.
Wipe your unit clean with a damp cloth on a regular basis. Do not use solvents or submerge it in water.
Change the batteries regularly. If you’re not expecting to use your TENS unit for an extended period of time, remove the batteries to prevent any possible acid from leaking into the machine.
Store your TENS unit and accessories in its protective case in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.
Do not use your TENS unit around flammable materials.
If a person is considering "TENS" for the first time, they should know that it is "Advisable to Consult a Medical Practitioner" before using.
