In 2014, the same year the FDA approved the marketing of many TENS Units for headaches and similar pains, iReliev® joined in on the mission, introducing a family of electrotherapy devices to the market, including a portable, over-the-counter TENS unit. When presented with this opportunity in 2014 after working on the prescription side of the healthcare industry, Williams knew this was his opportunity to fulfill his mission in life. Since then, iReliev® has developed a family of portable, over-the-counter TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) and EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) two-in-one devices that can be used for pain relief and for muscle conditioning.
