This learn section provides you with a quick overview of the key benefits and features of the Combo range and what makes it different from other TENS/EMS devices on the market.
Chronic or ongoing pain can affect any part of the body, most commonly the back, neck, knee, and shoulder. Our 3 in 1 Combo TENS and EMS machines help with managing pain, rehabilitation from injury and improving muscle performance. Providing an effective, safe, drug free option to pain relief and muscle recovery.
Our range of 3-in-1 Combo devices have three functions: TENS, EMS, and MASSAGE.
TENS helps relieve chronic nerve, muscle or joint pain. Use the TENS programs to help treat a range of issues. This includes back pain, shoulder pain and tension release, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, neck pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, acute sprains or strains, post operative pain, migraine, and general pain relief.
EMS The Combo EMS contracts and relaxes the muscle which will relieve inflammation by improving blood flow and to build strength during rehabilitation after injury or surgery forcing muscles to fire when an injury may prevent you from using these muscles naturally. By keeping these muscles engaged so you can return to normal activity and performance sooner, preventing atropy of the muscle.
The Combo range can be used for toning and strengthening all muscle groups for athletic training, bodybuilding and sports injuries, after pregnancy, weight loss, cosmetic purposes, chronic back pain and incontinence
MASSAGE stimulation program provides muscle relaxation to loosen tight muscles. This is very similar to TENS and EMS as explained above, except the treatment consists of delivering electrical impulses to relax muscles and decrease stress.
By combining TENS, EMS, and MASSAGE functions within the one convenient and portable device, our 3-in-1 Combo units ensure the right treatment at the right time to aid a faster recovery.

Of course! The electrodes can be reused multiple times, but their effectiveness may start to decrease after each use. To keep them in good condition, place them back on the paper they came on and seal in their pouch.
Pop an extra pack in your shopping cart when you purchase your TENS, so it’s always ready to go when needed! Please don’t use any other brands of electrodes with your Combo as this will void your warranty and potentially may cause issues with your Combo.
It is a good idea to replace the electrodes when they no longer stick to your skin firmly. It is also recommended to replace the electrodes if they become dirty or show signs of wear and tear. Electrodes should always be placed on the paper they come on and sealed in their pouch to extend their use.
If you are using the electrodes for extended periods of time they can become dry. If this happens, disconnect them from the device and apply a small drop of water to them.
Electrodes are generally placed near the area of pain. We have a great chart (insert link here) which will give you some guidance on where to place the electrodes depending on the location of your pain.

Buy vs Rent
There are a few reasons why you may want to consider purchasing a TENS/ EMS machine instead of renting one:
Cost-effectivenessDo you have Private Health Insurance? Purchasing a TENS machine may end up being more cost-effective if you are eligible for a rebate from your private health insurance scheme. The Combo is not a one off use, you can use it to manage any pain or injury, including period pain. It can be used by other members of the family.
ConvenienceOwning a Combo means you can use it whenever you want, for as long as you want. You won’t have to worry about returning the rented machine on time or paying any late fees.
HygieneRenting a Combo means you’ll be using a device that has been used by other people before you and you know its history. Owning your own TENS machine means you can ensure it’s clean and hygienic before each use.
Pain ManagementThe Combo range goes beyond just managing pain. It is also an EMS and massager, great for managing your aches and pains, and recovery from surgery. Use it across the whole family, just remember that everyone needs their own set of electrodes, please don’t share these for hygiene reasons.
Health Care RebateDid you know that you may be eligible to claim up to 100% of the cost of your Combo back from your private health fund? This makes our Combo even more affordable to purchase!
