Comparing the Pain Relief Devices

Comparing the Pain Relief Devices

Reading Time: 7 minutes

Our dpl® and reVive Light Therapy® brands offer a wide range of home light therapy products. They come in different sizes, shapes, and prices. And they’re meant to address very different issues, from wrinkle reduction to acne control and prevention to pain relief.

Here, we’ll break down the differences in our various pain-relief devices – including both our light therapy and TENS/EMS devices – so you can make the best choice when deciding which one is right for you.

Light Therapy Devices for Pain Relief

First, let’s look at our various light therapy pain-relief devices, starting with what they all have in common. Regardless of the size, shape, or flexibility of the device, all of our dpl® Light Therapy pain relief devices provide:

Pain-relief benefits including:

  • Relieves pain and stiffness
  • Accelerates healing
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Increases circulation
  • Eases pain from both temporary and chronic issues
  • Safe, natural, drug-free solution for all skin tones

Additional features including:

  • FSA eligibility
  • FDA-cleared, OTC Class II medical device
  • Infrared* and Red medical-grade LEDs
    • *NOTE: Infrared light is invisible to the human eye, so those LEDs may look like they aren’t working when the device is on. If the red LEDs are working, the infrared ones are, too.
  • User guide

With all those great features and benefits in common, you can’t really go wrong. But your choice will be made in the differences. And what makes each of these devices unique lies mainly in what areas of the body they are designed to treat — from head to toe, and everything in between.

TENS/EMS Devices for Pain Relief

TENS/EMS technology is a whole different way to address your pain and enhance muscle healing. Using mild electrical stimulation, the TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) settings on these devices provide safe, natural, drug-free pain relief. Operating in a similar way to TENS, the EMS (electronic muscle stimulation) settings on these devices stimulate muscles to strengthen them and enhance healing.

dpl® offers two TENS/EMS devices that provide the same benefits, just for different areas of the body. Both the Back and Joint models provide:

Features and benefits of the dpl® TENS/EMS include:

  • 6 modes: 2 TENS modes + 4 EMS modes
  • Natural pain relief and muscle recovery
  • Symptomatic relief and management of chronic, intractable pain
  • Relieves pain associated with arthritis
  • Temporarily increases local blood circulation
  • Rechargeable power source
  • Physician-approved technology

Additional features include:

  • Device controller
  • USB cord
  • Conductive gel pads
  • Storage bag
  • User guide
  • 6-month warranty

With all those great features and benefits in common, it’s really just about where you have pain that TENS can help relieve, or where you want to strengthen and enhance recovery of muscles with EMS.
