Product Details

Product Description


The Compex TENS/Heat Back Wrap and Unit delivers low back comfort and support. The Compex TENS/Heat Device in conjunction with the back wrap offers eight modes to temporarily relieve pain, whether from exercise, household work, work or day-to-day activities. The TENS function also aids in chronic pain management, intractable pain, and pain associated with arthritis. Use the touch screen to choose your program, intensity, and level of heat.

What is TENS?

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) are tiny electrical pulses delivered through a device which can help alleviate pain through two different means. By stimulating the sensory nerves TENS produces high levels of endorphins to help ease body pain. The other method of pain relief, known as GATE Control Theory, works to block pain signals to the brain.

    Great addition

    I was already using the Compex Elite when I decided to purchase the back wrap. I had problem placing the Elite's pads correctly on my own back. The Back Wrap has allowed me to easily use a TENS on my back without having to be a contortionist.
    Pros: The added heat feature is a bonus. This product does not get hot, but is a subtle heat.
    Cons: My intensity will sometimes just reset to 0. It has happened a few times with no apparent rhyme or reason.

    Tens feature is great and the heat complements it nicely. I have chronic lower back pain and it provides almost immediate relief to the pain. The only suggestion i have would be that the heat feature has a couple extra levels of warmth.
    Pros: Relieves pain almost instantly Easy to use Wireless Comfortable
    Cons: Wish it would get a little warmer for those cold mornings

    I really like the back wrap. It's worked great for immediately after a workout, before weightlifting, and after a long road trip.
    Pros: Multiple modes & heat to help relax muscles.
    Cons: The wrap is a little big to get it as tight as I would like.

    Simple to use and effective. No electrodes needed.

    Shipping was prompt and package was easy to open and laid out well

    Received (1) TENS Belt, (1) TENS/Heat Unit, (1) USB charging cable, and (1) Gift set of electrodes, including a pack sheet; Instructions were not included in my shipment, I found the instructions available on the compex website.

    Product Assembly:
    Simple to assemble-- there's two parts to the belt, the actual belt itself and the TENS/Heat Unit that "snaps" on magnetically to the belt.

    Product Usage:
    Relatively simple to use:
    1) Ensure the TENS/Heat Unit has been charged for a bit (at least an hour or two)
    2) Lightly wet the silver-colored pads on the TENS belt. (This is an important step as it will help provide conductivity for the TENS and Heat treatment)
    3) "Snap" on the TENS/Heat unit to the belt. It can only link on one way, and the magnetic bits will help it snap into place.
    4) Put on the belt, with the Compex label facing upright
    5) Push the power button on for a few seconds until the unit lights up.
    6) Select the program mode, intensity, duration and if you want heat.
    7) Once the choices have been selected, the program will start.
    8) You can lock the unit from accidental button pushing by pushing the power button once. Push it again to unlock, or push and hold to turn off.

    Product Feedback:
    The combination Heat and TENS was very helpful for my lower back issues. I suffer from occasional Sciatica and sore lower back episodes, and this item really helps with managing pain and discomfort. A nice plus is that it does TENS muscle stimulation without the use of electrodes. I would certainly recommend it for those looking for a therapeutic addition to their lower-back therapy.
    Pros: - No electrodes needed - Rechargeable battery via micro USB port - Portable - Provides TENS and/or Heat therapy
    Cons: - Silver pads on belt need to be damp (not dry or doused!) for effective use. - TENS strength slightly reduced if Heat is enabled (Assuming due to battery power) - For those who have a rounder shape or when bending at the waist, the TENS unit can occasionally pop off the belt. This will reset the program, which will need to be rerun.

    Wow....just got mine and works great for lower back pain. Easy to use because no wires or sticky electrodes. Works like a back brace for easy on/off, but includes tens & heat. Also, easy to charge using microusb cable. Only negative is control unit. Sometimes I hit front and change setting while walking or sitting.
    Pros: easy to use pain relief for back when sitting or walking
    Cons: wish battery would last longer with heat on and lock settings

    Great concept that falls a bit short.

    I have tried other devices and was excited to find a lower cost TENS/Muscle Stimulator that is just for my lower back. I received the item quickly and tried it out immediately. The addition of the heat feature was wonderful and I would recommend Compex continue to add this feature to future products. The TENS/Muscle Stimulation helped me to recover and relax my extremely tight lower back muscles. My main problem with the whole set up and eventual deal breaker was that the device would not stay on the wrap. It is meant to be held on by magnets but they are too weak and clips would have been a better design model. Sadly, because of this I sent it back.

    Full Disclosure: I was offered free items in return for my review.
    Pros: It does what it says. Cost effective alternative to other devices.
    Cons: It does not hold up under movement. TENS unit falls off too easily to be used anywhere but sitting or lying down.
