General Questions

Most kitchen wares and utensils available today are made up of materials like plastic, wood, stainless steel, aluminium, and so on. OZ Shop introduces a new material called silicone, which has proved to be far better than any other material used for manufacturing kitchen products.

The material silicone is a man-made compound of organic silicone and has its applications in many other fields such as sealant, plumbing grease, parchment paper, and also in medical applications.
There are many reasons to show that silicone kitchen products are way better than any other product available in the market. Apart from their unique characteristics, they are also available in brilliant colors that will surely make your kitchen more attractive. You also get to buy silicone pot holders that can be used for cooking in ovens.

Due to the porous characteristics of the material, the product will not be prone to kitchen stains. Some foods always leave stains and odors on your utensils, which makes washing much harder. All these worries are nullified by using silicone products.

All silicone kitchen products are non-corrosive and hard-wearing. Metals like aluminium are prone to react with certain foods when exposed to high temperatures. This may easily poison your food or even make your stomach upset. In case of silicone products, you need not worry about any of that. They are known to be the least hazardous among all types. It is also known for its durability.

Oz Shop presents a great TENS machine which can be used by people suffering from different kinds of pains like back pain (small or long-term), knee joint arthritis, muscle pain, headache, migraine, sports injuries, and so on. The machine has proved to bring a fast relief by just applying it for 20 minutes, 5 times a day. The machine has also proved to relieve pain from early stages of pregnancy, and also period pains. Some doctors prescribe TENS machine to patients suffering from constant tiredness, dementia, or insomnia.

What is a TENS Machine?
The word TENS stands for Transuctaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. The word ‘transuctaneous’ means ‘through the skin’. The device is small and portable and can be worn to your body or kept inside your pocket. The machine contains two electrodes that are to be connected to the body part where you are experiencing pain. A conductive gel must be sandwiched between the skin and the electrolyte.  Both the electrolytes must be kept a certain distance apart from each other. It is advised that you take a doctor’s advice on those matters.

The device transmits low voltage electrical pulses to the body. These pulses are felt as small electrical shocks, which effectively stops the pain signals from reaching the brain. When the electrical shock overtakes the pain signals and travels through the nerves and spinal cord, and reaches the brain, the pain in the body naturally reduces.

This mechanism works due to the gate control mechanism followed by our body. If a muscle tears on a person’s leg causes pain, it is because the pain signals are sent to the brain via nerves and spinal cord. But, our nerves and spinal cord has gates which opens and closes at certain small intervals. When it is open, the signals are passed and when it is closed the signals are blocked. At the same time, if a small shock signal from the TENS machine is passed on to our body; they are forced to move occupy and move through nerves that do not carry pain, and thus block the gate. Thus, the brain gets more signals from the TENS machine and lesser ones from the body pain. Since the pain signals are slow moving signals, the use of TENS machine for sometime will give you a relief from pain for a long time.

The machine has two types of pulse rates that can applied to the body – A higher rate of (90-130)Hertz and a lower rate of (2-5)Hertz. The lower ones will cause the body to self-generate endorphins, the chemical that helps the body to endure small pains.

Although the device seems to be useful, you must not use it unless and until the reason of pain is not known. It must also be avoided from people having cardiac arrests and pacemakers.

Some of the advantages of TENS machine are:
1.       No side effects at all.
2.       Completely portable – You can simply place the machine inside your pocket and make it work while you are busy at office.
3.       Will give you instant relief when compared to any other medicine.
4.       You can buy TENS machine at affordable rates.

Given below are some precautions you have to take while using the device.

  • Make sure that you place the electrodes on your body after ensuring that the machine is off.
  • First test the machine by placing it on your fingers to know if you can withstand the shock. After placing the electrodes on your body increase the pulse range step by step. Do not turn the pulse to a very high range as it may cause more pain.
  • Make sure that both the electrode and the point of application of the electrode are dry. Do not use it while taking a shower.
  • Get advice from your doctor on where to place the electrolytes and also ask him illustrate on how to put the conductive gel on your skin.
  • After use, do not pull the wires to remove the pads. Do it slowly and then clear the portion with soap.
  • Make sure that you d not use this device to cure pain in the neck, eyes, or mouth regions.

Dear Terry,
I am writing to let you know that I was extremely happy with the results from our SuperStim Tens/Ems machine that we purchased as the Royal Easter Show. I had a very bad frozen shoulder which I couldn’t seem to get better but after numerous applications of the SuperStim Tens machine I found it getting much better and now it has completely cured and I am convinced it was your SuperStim tens machine that did it for me. I would recommend it to anyone with a frozen shoulder to give it consideration because it gave me so much relief.
Best Regards,

To Whom It May Concern,
The West Coast Eagles Football Club have been using the SuperStim dual TENS and EMS machine for the first time this season. The dual capability of this particular machine has provided flexibility in our treatment of certain injuries, with both the pain relieving capacity of the TENS function and the muscle re-training aspect of the EMS. Along with our normal treatment regime, this machine has assisted us in the management of some of our soft tissue injuries, such as muscle strains and corks.
Kind regards,

A.L. Walker Warwick

To whom it may concern,
I have been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for more that 13 years. In 1995 I had an E.S.R. blood reading of 90. Specialists usually try to keep this reading at between 1 and 12. My reading caused pain that rendered me into a suicidal state. Since those days I have been under the care of Dr. Sonja Nagel here in Toowoomba and life has been bearable except for my knees. Usually I can not bear to stand still for more than ten minutes without looking for a chair because of the pain in my knees. At the recent Warwick show I purchased a set of “SuperStim” and tried it at home. THE RESULTS ARE AMAZING!!! I can now stand!! I use the treatment for about 45 mins once a day and I get 24 hours relief. I do not hesitate in recommending this product to any rheumatoid arthritis sufferer. Try it!!

Dear Mr. Reedman,
I wish to thank you enormously for the complete relief my recently purchased SuperStim TENS machine has brought me. I purchased my machine after a brief demonstration and sample of the benefits at Tamworth in January this year. Since my first pregnancy in 2001, I have suffered from debilitating sciatic pain in my lower back and hip. The SuperStim has relieved this pain, and allowed me to actively pursue my important role as a mother to a busy toddler­­­­! Were it not for our chance meeting with you and the SuperStim. I would be still suffering with every step, SO THANK YOU from the bottom of my hip!
