TENS electrodes

I've had the EMPI Select for 2 years now. Only problem I have with it is the electrodes coming apart. I'd LIKE to wear it when I work, since it goes a long ways in pain control. I don't bend all that much, but I do have to a bit. (I manage and feed dairy calves.) This isn't super intensely physical work, just carrying bottles and other stuff, but I'd like to not worry about these electrodes pulling off my back. Any suggestions?


  • just google tens electrodes and you should be able to get replacements {PALS and tyco make the best } i can even give you the part no for the PALS its tp150 that's for the 50x50 mm square ones .i use the hypoallergenic blue ones more expensive but kinder to the skin some more advice get them from a physiotherapist store not ebay or other avoid the very cheap ones .i get mine from acticare i use the tyco ones ..very good

  • You can buy better electrodes online. Also you can try putting a little water on the electrodes before you put it away each time you use it. If you PM me I will tell you which ones I buy and from what website. I don't think we are supposed to post that on here.

  • Thanks dear for share the information....
  • Orthoco.com to order electrodes. They have a lot of different kinds and shapes. As others have said, just google around. I'm sure there are lots of brands out there. My surgery was almost four years ago and I still use my Empi. It really helps.
