Fast-acting, easy-to-apply pain relief at home
Don’t put up with chronic pain, musculoskeletal pain or everyday aches that hold you back. With HiDow, you can start living on your terms again.
You might already be too familiar about how chronic pain affects people. While the physical symptoms, whether heavy, throbbing aches or burning sensations, are bad enough, the emotional toll is just as bad. Long-term pain can dramatically impact your quality of life, leaving you depressed, anxious, angry, tired… and most importantly, feeling like you’re unable to take part in your own life. Medication, with the often uncomfortable side effects may be popular to cope with chronic pain, but it’s not the only way.
Technology helps us apply age-old techniques to help fight the pain, with TENS and EMS being two of these. TENS or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation sends small electrical pulses through your skin that target the nerves, blocking pain signals from getting to your brain. In effect, the TENS technology in HiDow is a drug-free solution to pain relief. As an added benefit, it also encourages your body to produce hormones called “endorphins” that act as natural pain relievers.
HiDow allows you to harness TENS to ease chronic pain that’s plaguing your body. Studies have shown TENS to be effective for different types of pain, from the neck to the lower back, pelvis and other parts of the body. It’s also been proven to help with mood and activity, simply as a result of freeing your body from debilitating pain. But most importantly, it lets you get on with life… without the paralysing pain.
If you’ve been lucky enough to avoid serious injury or chronic pain, the chances are you’ve still felt the tug of everyday aches and pains. None of us completely escape them, and as we get older, daily aches can become commonplace.
Of course, most of us think to grab an over-the-counter pain relief drug when aches flare up. But more and more people around the world are using an “old made new”, drug-free technique called TENS (or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) to ease those aches and pains. TENS is a very effective analgesic (pain reliever). It works by sending gentle electrical pulses through the affected body area, blocking the pain signals that would otherwise be sent to the brain. While particular opioid-like drugs can also be effective pain relievers, they are often accompanied by side effects. The TENS technology embedded in HiDow is a drug-free method of relief from aches and pains. As an added benefit, it also encourages your body to produce endorphins, hormones that work to relieve pain naturally.
EMS or Electrical Muscle Stimulation also plays a part in relieving aches and pains that may slow us down. Along with relieving pain, EMS also stimulates muscle strength, growth and repair, as well as improving blood flow to speeding recovery whether from exercise or surgery.
HiDow is the tool people want, and use for fast, drug-free pain relief and recovery. With a simple interface, different intensities (to deal with different levels of pain) and portable enough to go where you do, HiDow provides an answer to those everyday aches.
It is an undeniable fact that musculoskeletal (muscle and joint) pain steals years of life quality from tens of millions of people around the world. People with pain in muscles and/or joints battle their bodies daily.
This kind of pain can make trying to live a “normal” life almost impossible. And while you can make lifestyle changes, like managing weight and moving about more, it might not be enough to get on top of musculoskeletal pain.
Fortunately, technology has developed to give sufferers an alternative, easy way to calm their pain. TENS - Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation - has been shown in numerous lab and field studies to relieve pain resulting from a range of muscle and joint conditions. In fact, since the 1980s TENS has been one of the most frequently used pain relieving “modalities” for Physical Therapists and is supported by a number of patient/physician interest groups including the Mayo clinic, Web MD, and the Cleveland Clinic.
While TENS has been used as a pain reliever for decades, modern technology has allowed thousands to bring it into their homes, or wherever they go. The HiDow is a light-weight, easy to use device that gives people battling musculoskeletal pain, tested relief. Plus, because it is drug-free, you can use it as often as you need.
