just a quick message to let anyone with a lloyds pharmacy tens machine know that you can fit other electrodes/pads to the machine, not just the ones sold by lloyds pharmacy.
i just found this out this week. my electrodes died (fell apart....
) so i went to lloyds pharmacy online to get more and they wanted over Â£8 for the 2 electrodes and delivery
. my nearest lloyds pharmacy is in a different town and is teeny so they dont stock tens machines and pads so online is my only option. methinks Â£8 is a bit too expensive! so i went on ebay and bought a set of 4 tens electrodes for about Â£5 including postage! and they fit and i dont feel any difference when i use the machine. i saw on ebay these really big electrodes that might be great for my upper back and abdomen.....
i always assumed that i had to buy the lloyds ones.... i'll buy mine from ebay from now on (although make sure you buy from a reputable seller- one that has loads of positive feedback...) as they are soo much cheaper. and the ones i bought came in a sealed bag (sealed during manufacture- i had to tear it open) and made by Physio-med, the same people that made my brace so i knew they were safe.
