"As a pain management physician for 15 years, I've found electrotherapy to be a valuable pain management option," said Dr. Rajive Adlaka, a board certified physician specializing in anesthesia and pain management. "One of the most important aspects of this therapy is that it's 100 percent drug free. It essentially has no side effects and there's no fear of addiction."

Utilizing TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) technology, the same technology used by physical therapists for more than 30 years, the Omron electroTHERAPY device is easy to use and helps relieve pain wherever it is needed most. The pads for the Omron electroTHERAPY unit are placed near the site of the pain and safely deliver gentle, massage-like pulses to alleviate stiff, achy, or sore muscles and joints.

"There are as many as 100 million people in the U.S. with acute or chronic pain. Omron electroTHERAPY for Pain Relief may help alleviate their pain in as little as 15 minutes," said Maureen Perou, senior product manager at Omron. "What's different about this product is that it demystifies and simplifies a time-tested therapy. It's like having a physical therapist by your side whenever you need it."

Featuring three preset programs each with five levels of intensity, the simple controls allow for personalization according to the type of pain. This small, handy unit fits in your hand or pocket for use almost anywhere and includes two comfortable, Long Life pads that are good for up to 150 uses. 

 Suggested retail price for the device is $69.99. New Long Life replacement pads (set of 2) can be purchased for $19.99 at www.OmronWebstore.com. Currently available online, Omron electroTHERAPY will soon be in local drugstores across the country.

Omron Healthcare has been a global pain leader for more than 20 years, selling more than five million units worldwide since 2003. For more information, visit Omron's new website at www.omronpainrelief.com.
