OMRON’s Electrotherapy Line Empowers Users with More Pain Relieving Choices
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (March 31, 2015) – OMRON Healthcare, Inc., a global leader in TENS Units and pain relief for more than 20 years, announced today its Electrotherapy TENS units (PM3031CAN and PM3032CAN) are now available in Canada. Now more people can find relief from achy muscle and joint pain in about 15 minutes*.
The TENS units are being introduced following the height of cold weather in Canada, when people are feeling pain from activities like shoveling snow or simply resolving to get back into the gym. Muscle and joint pains are frequent problems for many people throughout the year, but during colder months, pain prone areas become more inflamed.
“We have had an overwhelming amount of success with our Electrotherapy TENS Unit line in the U.S. and the natural next step is to expand to the Canadian market. Providing multiple options for every day pain management, our TENS units can be the difference between staying home in bed or getting up and getting out of the house,” said Maureen Perou, Senior Product Manager, OMRON Healthcare.
What is TENS Therapy?
Electrotherapy TENS units are a prescription-free pain relief option recommended by professionals and favored by a growing number of acute and chronic pain sufferers. TENS, which stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, uses gentle pulses to stimulate nearby nerves and is thought to block pain messages to the brain, stimulate the production of endorphins (the body’s natural pain reliever) and improve blood circulation. This drug-free pain relief tool, which can be purchased over the counter, is safe and effective to help users manage pain.
