Product Description

Millions of people worldwide suffer from chronic back pain in the lumbar spine. One of the most important treatment methods is the TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) electrotherapy, which uses small electrical nerve-stimulating pulses to provide non-invasive drug-free pain relief.

The WiTouch Pro is a TENS unit that is designed without the cumbersome battery packs and wired electrodes typical of traditional devices of this kind. The innovative wireless unit integrates all necessary elements in a compact and aesthetically appealing housing.

A complex dual overmoulded body assembly ensures that the highly flexible electrode wings comfortably hug the body’s contours. Thus, the device is easy to transport and can be worn discreetly underneath the clothes for long periods. The WiTouch Pro is intuitively operated, also via remote control, it is pleasant to the touch and highly flexible in use.

A combination of low-energy wireless chips and an intelligent software design allows for cost-efficient use even over a long period of time. It provides new treatment qualities for individual pain relief and a high degree of mobility.

As a result of this grounbreaking innovation and research, the WiTouch Pro has been awarded the “red dot: best of the best”  2013 and the award for "Best in Category, Medical & Scientific" at Australian International Design Awards for 2013.

What is TENS ?

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is the use of electric current produced by a device to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes.

TENS is a non-invasive, low-risk nerve stimulation intended to reduce pain, both acute and chronic.

TENS has been used as a solution for back pain for over 25 years and has been studied extensively to demonstrate its benefits. In a meta-analysis of studies examing the use of TENS therapy Johnson & Martinson* published a review of 39 randomised controlled trials. They concluded that the studies demsonstrate a "highly significant reduction in pain with the use of ENS (TENS) compared to placebo controls". In addition Fishbain et. al.* found that 376 chronic pain patients who had used TENS therapy for 6 months or more reported average satisfaction and comfort ratings of 8.19 and 8.35 out of 10 respectively.

Resynchronising Your Remote:

* Your WiTouch Pro device comes from the factory with a paired remote. You DO NOT have to pair the device and remote prior to use. In the rare instance the remote and device become unpaired and wireless communication between them stop, follow these steps to pair the units;

  1. Remove the batteries from the WiTouch UNIT
  2. Hold both the plus and minus buttons on the remote until it displays a solid green light
    1. If the remote does not light up, please replace the CR2032 battery
  3. Whilst looking at the remote, put the batteries back in to the WiTouch UNIT, the remote will flash five (5) times - put down the remote without pressing any more buttons
  4. Turn the UNIT on at the power button and increase intensity until you can hear/feel the electronic pulsing
    1. If you cannot turn the WiTouch UNIT on, replace the two AAA batteries

Review by:
I have had a back injury for 27 years, gained when I was Nursing. It has gradually got worse over the years. My spine is disintegrating, and I have sciatica and bad back pain 24/7. I had a T.E.N.S. machine years ago, until it finally gave up the ghost.

The sciatica goes down both legs, and the pain also goes around into my stomach. Also it radiates up my back. The painkillers are constant, and I am sick and tired of being tired all the time and being in constant pain. When I put the Wi Touch Pro on today, I noticed a big difference within half an hour. I could walk properly, and not creep around and jolt my back because of each step. I am only first day so far, but I haven't had an extra painkiller this afternoon, like I normally do. I felt tingles going down my legs, and I have been relieved of almost all of the pain in them. Even my knees feel better. I just want to thank you for this amazing product. (Posted on 5/07/2016)
