By purchasing a T.E.N.S. unit online from Queen West Physiotherapy I acknowledge that I have read, understand, and agree to all of the below:

Do NOT use T.E.N.S. in the following circumstances:

  • If you are in your first trimester of pregnancy (it is okay to use during labor – please consult your doctor)
  • If you have numbness or less feeling over a painful area
  • If you have pre-existing lymphoedema. T.E.N.S. may affect lymphatic circulation, causing further fluid retention. Issues of skin integrity should also be considered

CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR before using T.E.N.S. for the following circumstances:

  • If you have a pacemaker
  • If you have a cardiac condition
  • If you currently have Cancer or if you have previously had cancer
  • If you have recently experienced unexplained noticeable weight loss
  • If you have undiagnosed pain
  • If you have epilepsy
  • If you have had a stroke (Cerebrovascular Accident – CVA) or mini-stroke (Transient Ischemic Attack – TIA)

Do NOT use T.E.N.S. in the following ways:

  • While driving or operating potentially dangerous machinery
  • While in the shower
  • Do not use internally (inside your body)
  • Do not place pads in a way that directs the current through the chest wall (i.e. by placing one electrode on the back and the other opposite this on the front of the chest)
  • Do not place pads on the front of your neck. This risks stimulating the carotid sinus, which could cause cardiac problems (usually hypotension)
  • Do not apply pads over the eyes
  • Do not place pads across the temples on the head
  • Do not place pads over incisions or broken skin, sores and areas of eczema and psoriasis
  • Do not use with very high intensity if you find that your skin feels like it burns (dermal reaction due to electrical irritation)
  • Do not use if an allergy develops to the pads, adhesive or tape that is used. Find alternative materials
