Product Description

Product Description

The Omron E4 Professional is the most known device of the Omron range of electronic nerve stimulators (ENS), which enable you to reduce and relieve your pain symptoms. The treatment alleviates muscle and nerve pain through gentle stimulation.

With a lightweight and ergonomic design and 12 intelligent pre-programmed treatments for a wide variety of applications, plus a quick relief function to reduce (acute) muscle pain, this ENS device can efficiently treat tired and aching muscles.

Setting the device is very easy and each program stage is simple to monitor on the large display. Every program and pulse rate per pad can be adjusted in intensity. Also by using the manual mode you are able to have full control of your treatment.

The Omron E4 Professional includes extra comfortable, washable and long life pads which can be replaced to ensure the longevity of this device.

What is Electronic Nerve Stimulation?

Electronic nerve stimulation (ENS) is a highly-developed technology for physiotherapeutic treatment. Light electrical pulses stimulate and revive the areas of the body to which the electronic pads are attached. The ENS technology is useful in treating pain effectively, assisting in training muscles after sport injuries and achieving relaxation.

Electrical nerve stimulation involves the transmission of electrical energy from an external stimulator to the peripheral nervous system via continuously placed conductive gel pads.

ENS can be sub-classified into two variants:
  • low-intensity (1–2 mA), high-frequency (50–100 Hz) ENS
  • acupuncture-like high-intensity (15–20 mA), low-frequency (1–5 Hz) or "dense-disperse" ENS
The purported mechanism of action of ENS invokes both spinal and supraspinal theories. ENS can help with all acute and chronic pain:
  • Tension headaches
  • Shoulder and arm pain
  • Pain in the neck vertebrae
  • Pain in the thoracic spine or in the lumbar spine
  • Hip and knee joint complaints
  • Pain in the ankle or heel
  • Pain in the Achilles tendon (achyllodynia)
  • Trigeminus neuralgia
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Polyneuropathy of the lower leg
  • Pain after a shingles infection

Intelligent pre-programmed treatments allow a wide variety of applications. Setting the device is remarkably easy and each programme stage is easy to monitor on a large display. Every programme and pulse rate per pad can be adjusted to increase/decrease intensity and frequency as required. Two large, easy-to-apply long-life pads are included.

    These scales are a very sleek product from a company well-known for its medical equipment supplies.

    They are very nicely made and should stand up well to the rigors of everyday use. The digital display is clear and legible.

    However, don't expect to get anything resembling accurate readings unless it's resting on solid floor. Any sort of carpeting or even slightly resilient floor covering will produce wildly varying results. A totally solid surface is a must.

    Having spent a lot of time researching which scale to buy (having wasted money previously on really poor quality / accurate ones) I purchased this one. I have to say it is very good. I've found it to be very accurate and it weighs in both pounds/ stones and kilograms. It looks pretty and does what it says on the tin. Very happy with purchased.

    I ordered these scales to replace an old mechanical set which we had to throw out as they'd become home to a mouse, which died within and caused a stink as it began to decompose. I had high hopes for these scales, and couldn't wait to stand on them when they arrived very quickly after having been ordered.

    I took them up to the bathroom and tried them out on the perfectly level vinyl floor: I weighed 11st 5lb 0oz. I was delighted, as I had lost a good stone and a half in just a few days. I then made repeated tests on other floor surfaces. Laminate: 13.4.6; Tile 13.5.2.

    While the tiled floor results are consistent and probably accurate, the scales were bought for the bathroom which has the vinyl floor, so will be useless in there. My wife and I will now have to decide whether to use the scales in a different place or send them back. Either way, they're useless for where we actually wanted to use them.

    UPDATE

    Decided to keep scales as we've elected to only use them on the tiled floor. Consistently accurate on that surface but sensitivity to floor type loses it the top two stars.

    Once my old weighing scales started to tell me that I was lighter with my dressing gown on than off I knew it was time to get new ones. There is an awful lot of misinformation and hype around; I wanted scales that simply told me my weight to within tolerable limits accuracy (0.2 lbs seems to be a standard.) The rest of the stuff (body mass etc.) is to my mind tecchie over-kill.

    I finally plumped on these, a little concerned at how cheap they were and what the quality would be as a result.

    I needn't have worried. Standing on a firm bare wooden floor they are as accurate as claimed. The best test is to weigh oneself repeatedly with and without holding an object whose weight you know precisely (eg my dressing gown, for me.) You can then see how both your weight and the weight of your object fluctuate. The reason why one should alternate is because some scales have memories that snap back to the previous reading if close enough thus giving a spurious appearance of precision.

    Anyway, these work. Well done, Omron!

    Okay second attempt at this as the first review I did yesterday seems to have disappeared,strange as I know I finished and submitted it.My best guess is that for some reason Amazon has binned it!
    Recieved one full day early so that was a good start,was easy to set up, just a question of pulling the battery seal out and pressing the button on the bottom of the scales with a pen to set the kilos/pounds/stones and pounds readout.
    Had a good look at the unit and it is very nice looking bit of kit and thin enough to make it easy to pack away!
    I next tested the scales with a known weight and it was spot on,again good.Now knowing that other reviewers have complained that this unit doesnt work well on carpeted/uneven floors I kept it on the cushionfloor with no problems.Incidentally the (laughable) instruction book does warn against the uneven floor syndrome!
    Next job was to weigh myself.....BAD!
    Next job was to weigh my wife...again BAD!
    All in all an excellent set of scales at a very competitive price!...and in our case an excellent encouragement to diet!!!!

    A thin & stylish looking set of scales with 3 weight options; stones, pounds & kg's.

    Easy to use; just step on and it'll switch on and start measuring very quickly.

    That's the good points over with.

    The Bad:

    The manual covers practically every language on the planet and in all honesty is a huge waste of paper, realistically only 4 pages are needed, NOT 57 ?.
    The scales themselves are ultra sensitive & it is very likely you'll need at least 2 attempts to get your reading, which "will" vary.
    The lcd isn't back lit so make sure you have a head torch on in order to see the reading.
    Nothing less than a perfectly flat solid surface to put the scales on will do.
    Finally the slightest movement will affect the measurement, so hold your breath & don't move a millimeter.

    The best way to use this is to take 3 readings (the last 2 are usually the same ?) and get the average.

    Style over substance, I'm afraid.

    I was delighted when I first opened the box, the scales were elegant and lightweight. However, I found them awkward to use. For a start, you really have search out a very level floor space that does not have any carpet or vinyl flooring - not always available in the average house. I ended up having to use my builders spirit level much to his amusement. Luckily, I finally found somewhere, but not the room I really wanted to keep the scales in. The next problem was the control to determine either pounds, stones or kilo's is on the back, meaning that you have to keep lifting the scales up if you want to compare your weight in different readings. Unfortunately, once put down again, you then have to wait for them to 'settle' for quite a while before they will give a accurate reading which is really annoying. Also, they do not give a true stones & pounds reading but weight is given in the decimal point of a stone rather than the actual number of pounds. As I still live in a country with Imperial weights and measures, this is irritating and I now have finally settled on kilos only (which doesn't mean a lot to me) and then convert mentally to stones & pounds because I can't stand all the 'palaver'.
    I'm not sure if they are better or worse than any other digital scales, so I finally decided to keep them They're Ok - that's all I can say.
