Rapid Relief(TM) Electronic Pain Relief Pad Brings Portable, Wireless TENS Treatment to Drug Stores
Over-the-Counter, Wireless TENS Device Stops Pain Without a Prescription; Now Available in Drug Store Pain Relief Aisles Nationwide
COMMERCE TOWNSHIP, Mich., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — When you’re in pain, your life and the things you love to do stop. Don’t be a prisoner to your pain! HoMedics, innovative leader in consumer health, wellness and electronic lifestyle products, has introduced the Rapid Relief Electronic Pain Relief Pad — a wireless, completely portable Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) device, available over-the-counter, that instantly blocks the nerve pathway from transmitting pain signals from sore and aching muscles. The introduction of Rapid Relief comes as the month of September is declared Pain Awareness Month, a time when various organizations, both health care professionals and consumer groups, work to raise public awareness of issues in the area of pain and pain management.
Rapid Relief takes the clinically proven technology of TENS that has been used for years by health professionals to treat pain and makes it available without a prescription in the pain relief aisle of Walgreens, CVS and Walmart and online at Amazon.com and RapidReliefPad.com. Rapid Relief works by emitting a controlled micro-electronic current, called impulses, through the skin to block the nerves from transmitting pain signals to the body’s pain center providing fast, effective relief for aches and pains. Offering the latest in 21(st) Century pain relief, Rapid Relief uses clinically proven technology to deliver targeted, effective and safe pain relief for the lower back, arms and legs.
“For years, doctors, physical therapists and others have been using TENS devices to treat pain,” said Brian Elsemore, PT, MS, who has practiced as a registered Physical Therapist for a decade in Florida and New England. “Rapid Relief stops the pain at the source, so pain sufferers can live their life. It’s as simple to use as ‘apply where it hurts,’ with no drugs, no shots, no wires, and no worries about messy applications.”
Rapid Relief Electronic Pain Relief Pad is available in two models: one specifically calibrated to deliver quick relief to the lower back and another to deliver relief to the arms and legs with each offering 15 levels of adjustable intensity. Inside every Rapid Relief Electronic Pain Relief Pad package is: one device, one standard lithium battery (CR2032), one set of self-adhesive, replaceable gels good for up to 50 treatments, and a travel storage case with instructions to optimize usage. The Rapid Relief Electronic Pain Pad retails for only $29.99. Two sets of replacement Rapid Relief Gels, sold separately in the pain relief aisle, cost only $9.99.
The replaceable battery and Rapid Relief Gels are good for up to 50 (20-minute) treatments, making Rapid Relief one of the lowest cost-per-use options in the pain relief aisle and a valuable addition to an individual’s pain treatment regimen.
TENS products have previously been sold behind the pharmacists’ counter or in medical supply stores, often requiring a doctor’s prescription. Prior to the introduction of Rapid Relief Electronic Pain Pad, traditional TENS products could be challenging to use due to large control units and unwieldy wires.
“Rapid Relief is incredibly easy to use and compact enough for pain sufferers to wear under their clothing, discreetly treating pain on-the-go, whenever it is needed,” said Elsemore. “I have used it personally and recommend it to my clients, family and friends as a safe and effective new addition to their pain treatment regimen.”
