Handheld & portable electric stimulation units by size and weight

Size and weight

Most TENS and EMS devices can be considered portable electric stimulation units based on their weight and size, as opposed to only those that are aptly titled Portable Digital EMS with Timer and Carrying Case, or TENS 7000 to Go. In fact, many of them include accessories such as carrying cases and belt clips, or are very easily handheld. Those features have been added to take advantage of these devices’ light weight and convenient dimensions, as detailed in the following table.

As we can see from the preceding -and admittedly incomplete- table, portable electric stimulation units are not only easy to carry, but also use wherever you may go. Even if you travel often you know you can’t leave pain behind, and that’s where portability can come in pretty, well, handy. Conversely, if you stay home but would still like to move around and even do chores, then these units are for you as well (though it might be recommendable that you abstain from operating heavy machinery or driving a vehicle).
