With one in five (3.2 million)(1) Australians living with chronic pain, making even the simplest of tasks difficult and frustrating at times, consumers are continually on the look-out for effective pain relief solutions to improve their quality of life.
For more than 30 years, TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machines have been used by individuals and health professionals to relieve pain but until recently, have been expensive, bulky and difficult to operate.
Now, a solution is literally at hand with PAINmate; a new, clinically-proven, completely wireless and remote-free TENS device that can fit in the palm of your hand. From back and shoulder aches to joint and musculoskeletal discomfort, PAINmate instantly alleviates pain when and where it’s needed, whether it be from sporting or accidental injuries, health issues or simply due to ageing.
PAINmate is suitable for people aged over 18, and its wireless technology coupled with its small size makes it portable, discreet and comfortable to wear under clothes whilst doing daily activities. Both safe and effective, it provides rapid and targeted pain relief in 20 minute bursts with the option of 15 intensity levels and an auto-shut off feature.
Director of Evomed, PAINmate’s distributor, Penny McShane says, “Living with constant pain makes everything harder and is very frustrating. People want to move away from relying on pain medications, which have side effects or simply don’t cut it. We’re filling a gap in the market with the launch of PAINmate, offering a more affordable and portable TENS option for Australians. Unlike other bulky machines, it’s convenient, affordable, light and very discreet; providing targeted pain relief where it’s needed most. We’re excited to offer an effective TENS device to Australians that is supported by many physiotherapists and this unique solution is already proving to be extremely popular.”
TENS technology works by blocking pain signals safely and effectively through fast electrical impulses which override the slower pain impulses which travel along the nerves, enabling patients to live without pain.
Allowing for up to 50 uses before the batteries and gel pads need to be replaced, PAINmate is available in pharmacies or online for $49.95 RRP (no GST) and refill packs are available for $19.95 RRP (no GST).
