Since the 1960s physicians have trusted TENS and EMS therapies as pain management solutions. Now, with improving technologies, these units are available for in-home use, allowing users to find pain relief whenever they need it. The HiDow XPD is one such device that is available for users to ease their aching muscles.
HiDow XPD Dual Channel TENS EMS Unit
The HiDow XPD uses both TENS and EMS technologies. It offers users relief from pain without medication or side effects. It’s an intuitive massager to relieve all a user’s aches and pains.
In comparison to the iRelieve TENS + EMS Therapeutic Wearable System, the XPD does not offer as many programs. However, the XPD is dual channel while the iRelieve is only single channel.
The XPD combines 12 preprogrammed massage nodes and 20 adjustable levels of strength with variable frequencies. There are 6 TENS nodes and 6 EMS nodes. Users will be able to find the perfect solution to their pain needs.
The therapy provided by the device interrupts the pain signals to the brain. It stimulates and relaxes the muscles in the affected areas through safe electrical charges.
The electrode pads have a thick and reusable hydrogel layer. Additionally, they adhere well and have a long shelf life. Maintaining the pads is key to ensuring they last a long time. When applying them, users should not touch them with their fingers. When therapy ends, users should immediately put the protective plastic covering back on the pads.
The XPD’s batteries are built in. They recharge quickly and have a long life. Users will enjoy many therapy sessions before needing to recharge the batteries.
The device itself is durable and built to last. Because it only has a few parts, there is rarely a chance for failure or breakage. However, over time there may be a need to replace the TENS electrodes and gel pads.
Assembly and use is straightforward. Users will only need to attach the electrode wires to the pads and turn the unit on once they attach the pads to the affected area.
HiDow Ion Conductor Spray is an optional add-on that can be purchased to increase the adhesiveness of the gel pads. It will increase the lifespan of the gel pads as well as their effectiveness and impact.
The XPD is compact, fitting in a pocket for on-the-go massaging. It is very easy to use with an intuitive user interface.
On the downside, some users have reported bouts of sciatica after the first few uses of this device. Once they became used to it, however, this was no longer a problem.
