The LED light will begin flashing, which means it is active. The smartphone Bluetooth feature must be turned on to pair with the TENS device. From the iTENS app, press the chain link icon on the home screen to search and pair with all available pulse machine for pain relief devices. The placement of the TENS pads is also essential for effective relief. Check the iTENS placement guide through the iTENS app to place the pads effectively.

If you use more than one iTENS device, you can select all located devices when pairing. A solid light on the device indicates that the app and device have been successfully paired. The pulse machine for pain relief device can only be used with the gel pads explicitly made for the iTENS. Do not use the iTENS device without the gel pads. You can purchase new gel pads from the same store where you bought your TENS therapy device, or you can also purchase directly from our online store.

TENS therapy Preparation

Excessive body oil, sweat, and moisturizers will affect the gel pads’ ability to stick on the skin properly. You should ensure that you clean the skin area with soap and water and trim excessive hair before placing your TENS therapy device to ensure it sticks. The number of uses you can get from the iTENS gel pads will vary, primarily due to skin preparation.

You can use the iTENS wireless pulse machine for pain relief without using the iTENS app but will not have access to the same amount of variations as using the free companion app. The iTENS device manual mode will give you access to one basic program and does not provide the options available on the iTENS app. The device will default to the last program setting used when using the manual mode. Moreover, the buttons on the machine can manually control the intensity and frequency and you can change these during treatment.
