Best Price Tens Units: Care Tec II TENS/EMS
Approved by the FDA, the CareTec II TENS/EMS has revolutionized the portable electrotherapy world. This great unit delivers a great and affordable solution for people who are in need of TENS therapy to treat pain conditions related to the nerves and at the same time need a muscle stimulator to prevent and ease muscle atrophy and spasms.
This 2-1 device is the perfect combination of electrical muscle stimulation or EMS and transcutaneal nerve stimulation or TENS. Each working separately for specific targets, both types of current are sent into the body through separate dual channels.
This unit comes complete with the following items:
- Nine volt battery
- AC Adapter
- 4 Electrodes
- Protective Carrying Case
- User Manual
This is a small portable device. I measures four and a half inches in length and two and a half inches in width. It is also very light in weight, only being a quarter of a pound.
The Care Tec II comes with and adjustable timer that can be programmed to work from one minute to sixty minutes. When the timer is programmed, the treatment begins to be counted to down so that the patient can keep track of it.
While the device is functioning on the TENS mode, it is doing it in square mono-phasic wave pulse. The magnitude of the electrical impulses can be regulated between 0 and 100 milliamp from one peak to the following one at an ohm load of 1000 for each channel separately. The width of electrical impulse can also be regulated from 50 to 300 microseconds in increments of ten microseconds. The rate of the electrical impulse is one more thing that can be controlled in a range within 1 to 150 Hertz. Finally yet importantly, the rate of burst can be regulated from 1/2 a Hertz to 5 full Hertz in accessions of 1/10.
When the Care Tec II is functioning on EMS mode, it does it in a square mono-phasic electrical impulses or waves. In this case, the magnitude of the pulse can be regulated from 0 to 100 milliamp for both channels. The time the machine will contract the muscles can also be controlled by adjusting the waves in a range from 0 to 30 seconds.
This great device can be found at online stores such as Discount Medical Supplies at an extremely affordable price. Before buying any TENS unit always consider that a pack of electrodes is made to last 1 week, so it is always good to purchase some extra electrodes when you purchase the unit.
