Where do I place the TENS electrodes?
Included in your hire are FOUR electrode pads that connect to leads, which insert into the machine.
The sticky electrode pads need to be placed in the correct position for maximum pain relief from your TENS machine.
It is best to obtain assistance from either your birthing partner, midwife or medical adviser when positioning the electrode pads.
Prior to use please do the following:
1. Ensure your skin is clean before applying the pads.
2. Carefully peel the pads from the plastic backing using your forefinger and thumb. Do not pull on the lead wires. Retain plastic backing and pouch for storage after use.
3. Position the top two pads (connected to the left socket CH1) approximately 4cm either side of the spine, just below the bra line.
4. Position the bottom two pads (connected to the right socket CH2)
approximately 4cm either side of the spine, just above the panty line as seen in the diagram.
