i have one of these that i brought about 6months ago for this price at lloyds, great alternative pain relief, works wonders when my back plays up, i found it a bit 'shocking' to begin with but soon get use to it.

I also brought the extra replacement pads that were halfprice at the time too for about £2.50 i believe.

why cold does any one know ware to get one of these cheeper heat added

Just be careful with these... I bought one of the dual tens machines from Lloyds a couple of months ago, and every now and then, it wouldn't turn on, and then would give me a jolt of level 9. When I could only just stand level 4, level 9 was horrendous, and really painful.

I took it back and got another one, and that was exactly the same.

It got so I was frightened to use it - it absolutely killed when it would give me the jolt.

Took it back, and the staff wouldn't believe me, and even strapped it to themselves to prove me wrong. I know I shouldn't have laughed, but her scream when it gave her the level 9 jolt was too funny! :-D

Bought one from Boots, and have had no problems....

Not going to vote either way, as I no longer trust the brand, but it was a different model machine I had. But when your health is concerned, sometimes it's not worth getting the cheapest option out there - I think getting those blasts put back my recovery....

I have had this one for about a year with no problems. Remember its for localised pain only and not for area pain (e.g. for a single muscle and not for the whole leg). Replacement pads are readily available. You don't have to use Lloyds own.

My wife's midwife told us these aren't great for labour pain if that's what people are considering buying this for. She said you need to more powerful ones with four pads instead on the two on this one.

I use my wife's TENS machine, which she bought for labour, for my migraines. I use just 2 pads, and it help make the pain a little more manageable. Can't comment on this specific model, but can say 2 pads is ok for migraine pain.

ive got one they are great

where do you place them for migrane pain? as these arent meant to be put above the neck...

Don't these use similar technoogy to Stun Guns?

lol! not far off! :thumbsup:

no good for REAL pain lmao

the TENS machine is excellent for back pain/ period pain etc. HOWEVER... THE PADS LAST ABOUT 4 DAYS AND I BOUGHT 2 NEW NEW SETS AND THEY ONLY LASTED A FEW DAYS. ****.

i was just about to say that. though the four pad ones are amazing for labour pains so id definately reccommend to people who suffer from period pains or back pain. i used my tens (using only two pads) for the afterpains i had after my second bubby.

you always put them on the base of spine area. becuause it produces a hormone to help you cope better with the pain. and also blocks the messages to the pain resceptors.

though to be honest i dont understand how thatd help with migrane pains. maybe in reference to the sickness that inevitably come with a real migrane

Do you think this will be any use for people with pain in their hands/fingers. It has never been diagnosed as arthritis (sp) but my mum suffers from bad pains in her hands. May consider getting if it could help relieve the pain a bit

Possibly, my step father uses them for the same condition. He benefits from it.

Thanks for the reply, suppose for a tenner it is worth a try!

No worries - hope it works.:thumbsup:

I've had 3 of these. They do help my back pain BUT be warned all 3 failed with the same problem. Where the lead for the pad connected to the unit it won't work properly unless you wiggle it about a bit and will stop and start. Lloyds staff did say they knew of the issue and thought there was a bad batch. I'd go for a different type if I were you.

maybe a reason y they r cheap?

I wouldn't buy anything from Lloyds, I bought a steamer from there over a month ago, never turned up, they have refunded my cash now

I bought one of these last year towards the end of my pregnancy with my monster baby (10lb 7oz). I used it for the back pain 2 or 3 times a day and it was amazing. I used to put it on the one that cycled through the different levels. I used it also for my first few hours in labout when my contractions were only 3 mins apart but took it off eventually to get in the birthing pool. They are not allowed to sell them as a pregnancy TENS machine due to licencing rules (my neighbour is a store manager at my local lloyds and told me this). I would reccomend it as mine was great. I used to wash my pads and then restick them to the plastic and only had 2 sets in a year.

can you use these for kinky s3x games?

i bought one for my dad and it was no good, waste of money.

cane these be used for heart pain and brain acks

TENS machines are just gimmicks, based on pseudoscience. They dont make you release hormones (!) as a previous poster said. Ask anyone who is a medical doctor (note: doctor) and they will tell you- these are snake oil...they work (if at all) by PLACEBO EFFECT.
Theres nothing wrong with exploiting the placebo effect, by the way, but I find it quite ugly that companies are making a profit on people's pain

Got one in store today, no problems. Marked as £15 on the shelf, but there was a display behind the counter with vouchers saying £10.
Also got the spare pads for half price (£3.99)
