The PainPod Heat is the world's first FDA cleared TENS device patented with Heat for the relief of muscle pain, arthritis pain and chronic pain. Heat4 and TENS3 are known to help relieve pain, however clinical studies1, 2, 5 have demonstrated this combination to be much more effective than TENS or Heat alone.
The PainPod Heat allows you to use TENS, EMS & Heat in isolation or combined.
