iTENS is the wearable, wireless TENS technology that you can customise to suit your needs.

Your iTENS device:

  • light
  • thin
  • flexible
  • wearable
  • discreet - can be worn under clothes
  • customisable via your smart phone
  • moveable arms to position electrodes as needed
  • is interchangeable with multiple wings. Buy a second set of wings if more than one area is to be treated, attach where required and swap the device between the wings as needed. 
    eg for period pain, use the small wing just above the pubic bone, buy a separate large wing to attach to your lower back or bra line (both can help with period and endo pain)

Pelvic and period pain

There are a number of wearable wireless TENS machines marketed specifically for period pain but none seem to state what parameters are used within each mode or level. The big difference between the iTENS and other wearable devices is that you can control the device, and set your own programs, from your phone via the app.

Research has shown that specific parameters work best for dysmenorrhea (period pain) and endometriosis pain*.

  • You can custom set these into your iTENS device and control the intensity  of the current via your phone.
  • No big unexpected jumps in the sensation – you are in control.

iTENS was developed for pain conditions anywhere in the body but as we focus purely on pelvic health issues here at Pelvic Floor Exercise we decided to stock it more specifically for our customers looking for help with pelvic pain such as

  • Period pain (Dysmenorrhea)
  • Endometriosis pain
  • Bladder pain syndrome
  • Any cause of pelvic pain!

It will also work for bladder urgency when attached over the tibial nerve at the inner ankle ( known as TTNS or Transcutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation)


How to use iTENS for period pain

  • follow set up instructions below
  • use the app to program in the Hz and uS suggested below*
  • the iTENS small wing is the ideal size for use suprapubically - ie above your pubic bone but below your belly button, this gives good pain relief for many users
  • the other places to try your wings, that can be helpful for period and pelvic pain, are over your sacrum or around your bra line/below the shoulder blades.
  • you can also buy a second wing in a larger size to use over these areas on your back. Your iTENS device that comes with the small wing fits into the large wing as well. Just swap from one wing to the other depening on where your pain is and what works best for you.
  • This video on electrode placement may be helpful. It demonstrates the use of electrodes with leads but you can substitute your iTENS wings for any of these placements.

How to set up and pair your iTENS Device

iTENS is controlled via the device itself or via an iOS or Android- based app. iTENS Generation 2 is compatible across all post 2014 Apple and Galaxy phones

  2. Press and hold the centre button for 3 seconds to place the device in discoverable mode. The LED light will begin flashing on the device, which means the discoverable mode is active. Bluetooth must be turned on in your smartphone settings to pair with the device.
  3. From the app, press the chain link icon on the home screen to search and pair with all available TENS devices. If you are using more than one TENS, select all located devices when pairing. A solid light on the device indicates that the app and device have been successfully paired.

Frequently asked questions

Do I have to sync/pair to my phone every session?

No, you should not have to pair the TENS device to your app with every use. Make sure that once the device is paired, you use the on-app screen to control the device, including turning the device on and off. Center button acts as an hard reset/pairing button, do not use the button on the device to turn it off, or it will reset your pairing settings.

Can I use the device without the app?

Yes, but you will not have access to the same amount of variations as using the app. The device’s manual operation will give you access to one basic program and does not provide the options available on the app. When using the manual operation option, the unit will default to the last setting used.
The area above and below the centre button can manually control the intensity increase/decrease. The area above increases the intensity, and the area below decreases the intensity

Why is the LED blinking?

It is either in pairing mode, or it means you need to charge your battery. The blinking red indicates a low battery.

Do I have to use the gel pads?

Yes, the TENS device can only be used with the gel pads designed specifically for the TENS. Failure to do so can result in skin irritation or burns. Do not attempt to use the device without gel pads.

How many times can I use the gel pads?

The gel pads can generally be used for 10-20 sessions or more. Beyond this point, the quality of stimulation may diminish. To enhance the gel pad stickiness, dab a few drops of water onto the gel to re-hydrate the gel pad. Dry it before applying to the skin. 

Excessive oil, moisturizers, and perspiration will affect the gel pads’ ability to adhere properly. You should always clean the treatment area with soap and water, and trim excessive hair before applying your TENS to ensure optimal adhesion. The number of uses you can gain from the gel pads will vary, primarily due to skin preparation.

Humidity vs. dry climates can also affect lifespan, as well as proper storage of the gel pads, which is very important.

How long will the wings last?

The wings should last for 6 or more months, however, it really depends how much or how little you use your device. Wings will begin to show wear and tear after a multitude of uses. Once the wings get really worn, you will begin to notice the intensity is not as effective and sensation of stimulation has severely weakened. At this time, we advise replacement of the wings.

Can I use iTENS when pregnant?

Pregnancy is considered a precaution for use of TENS and you should never use it over the uterus during pregnancy. For use elswhere on the body please consult with your treating health professional.

How long can I wear my iTENS device?

TENS can be worn every day. The device does not have to be removed between stimulation treatments. However, it is recommended to rest between stimulation sessions and check the skin under the pad periodically for redness. If the redness does not go away after a couple of hours of having the electrodes off, then you may have a mild allergic reaction to the gel. Discontinue use of the TENS.

DO NOT use TENS while sleeping or whilst driving or operating machinery.

Can I use iTENS whilst working out?

Sweat and strenuous activity can prevent the electrodes from adhering to the skin, so it is recommended that you use it before or after such activity.
