Smart TENS is a dual channel TENS machine that is simple to use and helps with pain associated with acute and chronic conditions that respond well to TENS therapy. It has 4 different TENS modes (programs) operating on an intensity that is adjustable to individual user’s preference or tolerance.
It is light, small and ergonomically shaped. During use, you can hold the Smart TENS in your hand or you can clip the Smart TENS to your clothing with an adjustable belt clip located on the back of the machine. Alternatively, you can use the neck cord to wear the Smart TENS around your neck.
Just some of the painful problems that Smart TENS can help with are:
- Chronic & acute pain
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Osteoporosis pain
- Sprains Sports injuries
- Period pain
- Post-operative pain

- Value for money
Using the Smart TENS
Using Smart TENS is simple. Just fit the batteries in the battery compartment. Fit the connective leads into the sockets at the top of the machine. Place the skin electrodes on the skin in the area you wish to treat and connect them to the TENS machine using the leads.
Smart TENS has 4 different TENS modes (programmes) operating on an intensity that is adjustable to individual user’s preference or tolerance.
Mode 1 – Constant: Pulse frequency 100 Hz / Pulse width 20 – 250 µs. The pulses are steady and continuous and feel like a tingly sensation. In this mode, the signals from Smart TENS prevent the pain signals from reaching your brain. This mode is based on the principles of Pain Gate Control Theory. High frequency signals generated by the Smart TENS machine are very effective in giving a quick pain relief with relief lasting for several hours after one hour of treatment.
Mode 2 – Burst: Pulse frequency 32 Hz / Pulse width 20 – 250 µs. The pulses work in bursts, which mean that they are on and off in a regular cycle. The signals feel similar to a heart beat – a tapping and pulsating sensation and slight muscle twitching can be felt. This mode is based on the acupuncture-like TENS or Endorphin Release Theory. (Low frequency acupuncture-like TENS signals stimulate the body to release endorphins, the body’s own pain killing substances). This type of treatment is slower to be effective, but the effects of a 60 minute treatment can last for longer periods, sometimes for days.
Mode 3 – Massage: Pulse frequency 32 & 100 Hz / Pulse width: 20 – 250 µs. Smart TENS generates regular cycles of decreasing and increasing pulses that create a massage-like sensation.
Mode 4 – Mixed (dense disperse): This mode is a mixed setting in which the Smart TENS generates 3 seconds of Constant pulses followed by 3 seconds of Bursts. In the mode, the Smart TENS combines the pain blocking effects with endorphin stimulating effects.
Point to note: Pain is very subjective and pain perception varies from person to person. It is very difficult to predict how effective TENS therapy will be until you try it. Best results are obtained by selecting the most appropriate electrode positioning and the frequency setting that is both acceptable and provides most relief in treating your painful condition.
Smart TENS is supplied with a free digital download of Dr Gordon Gadsby’s book titled ‘An easy guide to TENS pain relief’. In this illustrated and easy to understand guide to TENS therapy, Dr Gadsby provides clear guidance on what painful conditions can be effectively treated with TENS machines and where the best positions are for electrode placements. Step by step, Dr Gadsby guides you through the best use of your TENS machine for effective outcomes in TENS pain relief.
