It's a "Home Medical Services (HMS) Neuromuscular Stimulator."

Frequency: Nine different settings

Intensity: Up to "9"

I've been on the one that is ramp'd up to 30 and another to 50 at PT. Large machines. I'm told the numbers really are relative in the sense that they are same in output.

Then they have what I have, which is small device save they have newer version. I don't use it because I tell them I all ready have it and stick with the larger units just on the presumption they might be better.

In the end, I think they are all TENS units.
