iBelt

The iBelt works in the same way as an electrode. It receives electrical impulses from a TENS unit and stimulates the nerve endings across a wider surface area - relieving the symptoms of lower back pain fast and effectively.

The iBelt is perfect for those who struggle to place electrodes on their back. It is easily positioned and can be adjusted to suit your needs.

The iBelt can be used to treat various conditions including chronic back pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, sport injuries and general back ache and pain.

TENS unit is not included, however we recommend the iBelt as an accessory for the Touch TENS or Sports TENS 2 units.

Size: 110cm

It may interfere with the signals being monitored.
 • Strong electromagnetic fields (electrosurgery/microwave cookers/mobile phones) may affect the correct operation of this unit.

TENS UNIT NOT INCLUDED

TENS is effective for pain relief from a ide range of causes. TENS machine can be used to help reduce pain from problems in muscles, joints nad nerves. It can be also used for people with musculoskeletal pain such as long- term (chronic) back pain or knee joint arthritis. They are also often used for pain relief in the early stages of labour (see maternity TENS), particularly whilst a pregnant woman remains at home. Other uses include migraine headaches, period pain (see Ova+) and sports injuries.

You can use low frequency (<10 Hz) programmes on acupuncture points, to achieve similar effects to acupuncture.

TENS machines can be used alone for pain relief or be combined with other treatments. You can safely use TENS as long as it gives you pain relief. The effect may wear off after a few hours (this is called “accommodation”). If this happens, take a break of an hour or so before trying again.
