I have to admit, my husband and I have been using this unit from iTens for quite a few months, maybe 6 months or so… and I’m finally devoting some time to sit down and write about it.  You see, pain is never something I enjoy writing about (who does, anyway?) so putting the effort into writing about something that makes me miserable (PAIN) is not a thing I enjoy doing.  But, I really wanted to share this with you and my thoughts on the iTENS wearable electrotherapy tens unit device.

The iTENS unit retails for $99.00 and you can select between the Large Wings (pictured above) or the Small Wings.  My husband and I opted for the Large Wings because it gives the maximum coverage for your pain sites and are designed to provide bigger coverage area of pain relief for the back, shoulder and other large treatment areas… all of which are locations that my husband and I experience tremendous and continuous pain.

The iTENS unit will give you up to 24 hours of use per charge for continuous pain relief and the gel pads that come with it are good for 10-12 applications.  Each unit includes the following items:

  • iTENS Device with rechargeable lithium-ion battery (installed)
  • Large Wings with Laser printed silver conductive surface
  • Charging dock with USB charging cable
  • One set of reusable Gel Pads
  • Large Wing Span of 2.5″ x 6.5″

What makes the iTENS so unique is that it brings together wearable technology that meets digital health.  This thin, lightweight and compact unit can be worn discreetly under your clothing and there are no wires to get in the way or get tangled with like a traditional tens unit.  The fun part, is that the device can be easily controlled from the convenience of an app on your smart phone.

The state of the art APP and an energy efficient lithium-ion battery provide you with exceptional battery life for on the go and daily use while incorporating the advanced technology of TENS electronics.  And, what we enjoy is that the tool and app actually help with managing your pain allowing you to have documentation at your finger tips for how long you used the unit, a way to track your pain results and where your pain is as well as where you applied your iTENS to your body.  The settings for this device is so easy and you can easily apply different types of settings to your device based on your specific pain condition and location.

The iTENS is an FDA cleared, drug-free alternative for treatment of a variety of pain conditions.  It’s shape is unique in that it allows for flexible and contoured fit around most joints and body parts.  My husband and I especially enjoy that it fits perfectly on our back and in the curves where we need the pain relief.  Like I mentioned previously, it’s very lightweight, thin and comfortable and you get medical grade strength without the prescription.

Now, I’m not sure if I mentioned before, but my husband and I own several tens unit devices as prescribed by our doctors.  Between the two of us, we probably have 6 total (not included the iTENS) so we have definitely tried many on the market, both medical grade and over the counter.  I love that the accessories to keep up with the iTENS and replacement is affordable.  If you’ve ever had to buy replacement pads for a tens unit, you know that they can get costly and many times only last 2-3 times before the sticky is gone.  The Peel-n-stick Gel pads for iTENS are available in all sizes for the iTENS device wings.  The reusable gel pads are good for 10 applications (as I stated above) and each package contains 3 sets of these gel pads for just $6.99 – which is a good bargain considering you are getting 30+ uses in one gel pad refill box.

The iTENS offers muscle massage and muscle rehabilitation modes so you get the maximum in pain relief for joints and muscles as well as recovery after you have really stressed your muscles from sports, working out, etc.  You also get a variety of accessories for your device so you can decide to get teh Long Strip Accessory which is designed for sciatic nerve, IT band, tendons and other long treatment areas or the small wing, all of which are interchangeable with the original device you have purchased.

iTENS.com also offers a placement gallery to assist with areas to place your wings.

I realize I have given you an overwhelming amount of information, but I honestly don’t know where to begin or where to start.  I’m absolutely enjoy my iTENS device and my husband and I love the convenience of all the options available to us.  I especially enjoy that the Bluetooth app enables me to use this product without being stopped up by wires or a bulky base that can keep me from really relaxing and enjoying the massage it offers.  Replacement pads and accessories are reasonably priced and offer my husband and I a range of products at our finger tips and most importantly, it works.  After using different tens units over the years, I know that they work well and I enjoy the fact that this one may look discreet and small but it surely packs a punch.  If my husband can get a good massage and pain relief from a device that’s so small and tiny, through his muscles and all – I know anyone could benefit from the iTENS.

Now, yes – I was sent this product for review consideration and yes, I realize that it could seem that my opinion is biased… but let’s be honest here, if you’ve been on my site for a while, you know I have no problem talking about whether or not a product worked for me, whether it was sent for review or not.  I can honestly say I am enjoying this product and so is my husband and we have bought replacement pads twice already.  It’s worth looking into if you experience chronic pain like we do.  And, if you’re over those bulky tens units you have been prescribed, I highly suggest checking this out.  The investment is reasonable and actually quite affordable considering the relief you’ll get in the long run.

Thanks iTENS for sending this over to my husband and I.  We love it and look forward to picking up all of the accessories and more.  You have customers for life here.

Music feeds my soul and because of this, I carry a pair of ear buds with me no matter where I go.  It’s literally attached to my hip in case I need a little inspiration or need some quiet time and a little relaxation.  Sometimes we don’t think about the convenience of things like headphones or ear buds until we are spending 45 minutes untangling them.  It’s no secret that I’m brutal with many of my belongings and earphones are one of them.  I literally take them off and toss them in my purse only to find them the next day looking like a bad hair day on steroids… it’s traumatic to say the least. Today I bring to you a product that my son Kevin and I have been absolutely loving.  See, he is an earphone extraordinaire as well and you can easily find a pair of earbuds in his pocket on any given day.  Today – we share with you a revolutionary product called – CordCruncher.  These tangle-free earbuds (they also have charging cables) help solve a solution my son and I deal with on a daily basis – tangled head phone cords.

The earbuds have great features like – well, of course… they NEVER tangle and have patented adjustable bass and drivers making the sound incredible for acoustics of all kinds.  It extends and retracts into the tangle free sleeve 40″ to 16″ and includes 3 pairs of different sized ear tips.  The different sized ear tips are especially important to me because I have sensitive ears and I can adjust the size of the earbud to fit comfortably in my ear.  What makes this so great as well is that you can wrap the CordCruncher around your wrist or neck for storage while on the go… hello, genius.

Using these earbuds is as simple as pulling out the cord to use them and then stretching the latex sleeve over the cord when you are done to store them away.  It’s just a matter of a little finger work and you’re good to go.  I especially love that I can turn up the base with just a little turn of the actual earbud itself, offering great audio with acoustic sound that gets me pumped up and ready to go for a walk and run or workout.  You can extend the cord to 40″ which gives you a lot of length for your convenience, or tuck some of it away for a shorter cord that gives you a little more freedom to move.

“These earbuds are awesome.  I use them in various electronics – my iPad, Samsung Note and to listen to music or watch videos.  They are comfortable to wear and easy to put away.  I just toss them in my backpack and they have never tangled.  It’s a great invention.” – Kevin

These earbuds are seriously a great buy.  Considering the quality and the technology as well as the ease of use, they are an impressive product that I would highly suggest to anyone.  If you are someone like me that uses music to inspire you or watches YouTube videos on the fly and you take music with you on a workout or run, you’ll absolutely LOVE these.

I remember a time when headphones and earbuds were really affordable and that also meant they didn’t last long.  In the time when a set of headphones can cost you upwards of $100 or more, these definitely offer similar quality but the convenience of not only using on the go – but they never tangle.  If you ask me, it’s a WIN.

You can get these earbuds and others products from CordCruncher at: https://www.cordcruncher.com.  If you are tired of tangled headphones and earbuds, I highly suggest you check these babies out, they’re awesome.  They are so good, they made my April Favorites 2016 Video, which you can watch here.  I’m sure you’ll see these pop up in various videos on my channel or in social media because we truly enjoy them.

I want to thank my son Kevin for offering his input and for helping me test out the CordCruncher.

So, have you heard of the CordCruncher earbuds before?  If you have, what are your thoughts on them?  If not, is this is something you think you would get some use out of?
