HELP!! My boots own brand maternity TENS machine (blue and white one, model: XL-Y3RS) was a godsend for DC1's birth and I had hoped to use it again in a couple of weeks but I've just found out that it's now discontinued and they no longer sell the replacement pads. Has anyone else got the same machine and found any compatible replacement pads from anywhere??

Are you sure you cannot use another brand of pads? From what i remember, the socket is similar on all of them.

That's what I'm hoping for mayhew, I could just do with some recommendations for other brands that are compatible.

Did you manage to sort pads - I have just borrowed one for my daughter and need to sort some out - thanks

Assuming its the same one I had (bought about 3 years ago) then frantic googling uncovered the fact that although you can't buy the machines any longer, you can rent them. The company handling the rentals on behalf of Boots sells/produces replacement pads. They work, used them in labour last week! You can get cheaper ones but I wanted to be sure I got the right thing.

Sold by natural.tens on Ebay. Called TensCare Superior Electrode Pads 50x100mm , 4 pads per packet - 1 packet for £6.50 including P&P.
