Thumbs down Never Use Zynex IFC, Not True IFC

Are you kidding me? Have you ever looked at that stupid new unit by Zynex? They call it 3 units in 1. IFC, TENS and NMES. What a joke! How in the hell can you call it IFC when it runs off a 9 volt battery! Who is Zynex trying to fool? You call that a TENS? OMG, give me a break!

Never seen a company lie about just about everything! The equipment, where the equipments made, billing practices, name changes, cfo changes, used car sales reps, investor lawsuits, sec lawsuits, "cooking books", business claims, etc.....etc.....etc......

Unhappy Re: Never Use Zynex IFC, Not True IFC

The sales reps need to make a living for sure. As lame as the products
are that's what they sell. I feel sorry for the Zynex reps because we all
Know we were being led along like puppies while the company was slaughtered.with
unbillables. Once the reps figure it out they'll leave in droves. Many have
already jumped ship. Not the reps fault, we are just doing our best to make
a living. I hate being manipulated.

30 year old equipment from a weak Chinese manufacturer. )Nex
lies about everything being American made. Rotten ethics
and quality. Will do/say anything to get business. Zynex is a creepy
company.

The NexWave from Zynex is the NexPieceOfShit. Just another Gimmick from Zynex. Really poorly made device.

Can I have a piece of shit instead? That would be better than the Nexwave.

I had my brother who works in bio-engineering at a Methodist Hospital run a report on the Zynex 8100 and it's not even close to being considered IFC. The initial poster is 100% correct. The Zynex 8100 is nothing more than a standard TENS unit. Zynex is making a new unit called the NexWave and I have no reason to believe it will be any different than the current 8100. You can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig. It's one thing to make IFC's to increasing billings (they run about $5,000) but to claim it's IFC when it's not? TENS bills out at about $59 dollars on the internet. Zynex is running a major scam.

The new unit called NexWave is not true IFC either. There is bio-engineering company that exposed the efficacy and deemed the device highly inacurate in its statements. Poorly made, cheap, and bills out between $3,000.00 and $5000.00 depending if its being billed as TENS or IFC. Physical Therapists, Dr's and insurance companies need be aware of Zynex Medical, Inc. Reimbursement is very poor for these electrotherapy devices but billings can be high. I always suspect fraud issues when a company like Zynex Medical, Inc. gets new loans every six months to pay off Anthem Blue Cross, Insurance for law suits, IRS problems, rent "catch-up". Zynex works hard to lure investers but the bottom line is UGLY!!!

Does anyone know about a "suspension letter" issued for the NEXWAVE on June 12, 2012? I was trying to do a little research about the NEXWAVE and came across this:

Or, contact the owner Zynex Medical, Inc. of the NEXWAVE trademark by filing a request to communicate with the Legal Correspondent for licensing, use, and/or questions related to the NEXWAVE trademark.
Status Update! On Tuesday, June 12, 2012, status on the NEXWAVE trademark changed to SUSPENSION LETTER - MAILED.

On Thursday, March 01, 2012, a U.S. federal trademark registration was filed for NEXWAVE by Zynex Medical, Inc., Lone Tree, CO 80124. The USPTO has given the NEXWAVE trademark serial number of 85557418. The current federal status of this trademark filing is SUSPENSION LETTER - MAILED. The correspondent listed for NEXWAVE is ZYNEX MEDICAL, INC. of ZYNEX MEDICAL, INC., 9990 PARK MEADOWS DR, LONE TREE, CO 80124-6739 .

You Failed to mention that it also runs off an AC adapter and recommended to be plugged in for IFC (patients are typically sitting down for IFC & NMES treatments). However, the battery makes it highly portable for TENS, which can be used as-needed. Zynex uses true IFC where the current is mixed between the electrodes, which makes the skin 100x less resistant to electrotherapy and results in deeper penetration depth for chronic conditions.

This sounds like an EMPI rep that doesn't know how to compete w/ true IFC, since their device mimics IFC, by using simple modulated pulse where the current is pre-modulated (mixed) within the device.

Default Re: Never Use Zynex IFC, Not True IFC

I use the IFC at the physical therapist and she finally set me up with a potable Zynex IFC/tens "nexwave". I have no idea what the fuss is all about. I love it. I have had it for 6 months and can't imagine what I would do with put it. Yes, I have to plug the AC adapter in to use the IFC but I can take the portable and use the tens anywhere. I have had no issues and Zynex sends me new electrodes before even having to ask for them. I love mine!!

Jester I love my Zynex device

I don't know what you guys are bitching about.. I've had one since an accident I got in last year and it does help relieve the pain. And having a 9 volt options allows me to be portable when i'm using it. Why all the negative comments? if it works.. ir works!

I've never used any electro stim device. Never had to.

It really does work for back pain! I'm impressed!



If you have a complaint, be sure to also bring a solution to the argument.
It's one thing to bad mouth a device, it's another to provide a solution to your complaint.


No solution probably indicates sour grapes and/or a competitor who's losing market share?

Jester Just want some info off of the ac adapter...

Have the Zynex Truwave Plus, and love it. It isn't worth two spits on battery though when running IFC, of that I can agree. Anyway, I lost my ac adapters and no longer get free batteries in the mail, so I need the following info off of your ac adapter to verify what I have in my hand which I *think* is the adapter. I need the Model, Input AC lines and Output DC lines complete. I think it's manufactured pretty poorly, and don't want to have to go through the fight it sounds many have with getting one repaired. I just don't want to fry the little bugger.

Thanks.
Eddie

No Zynex device ever provided true IFC on batteries, they had to be plugged in with the AC adapter.

Why don't they clearly state this? Because if they did they would not have been able to bill for the 9 volt batteries they charged the insurance companies and Medicare every month.

If you were prescribed IFC and needed IFC, you would not get IFC treatment using the batteries. I wonder how much Zynex made off of charging Medicare for those batteries?

Talking Re: Never Use Zynex IFC, Not True IFC

New to using Zynex "NexWave". It is a whole lot better than meds, although mine does not shut off properly. I don't think I can tell a difference between battery powered and adapter powered. Neither one works perfectly for the intensity of pain and headaches I have been experienceing, but both seem to be better. My bigger concern is how hight to set the thing, just till I feel it or one notch below pain. Not enough experience yet, but I will keep my eye on the possible battery issue. Thank you, Olympia, WA.

Default Zynex relies chronic back pain

Lots of grousing about whether this is true IFC or not. The bottom line for me is that it relieves pain. Period. Wicked pain. If it's not for you, use something else. Get a life. Yell at the TV. Go invent something that works better, hot shots.

They put you on a monthly billing system if you rent the unit and charge $39.96 a month for four 9V batteries and $170.00 a month for four electrodes. The monthly rental is $249.00. The total for a 6-9 month rental would be between $2,753.76-$4,130.64. They will continue to bill you after your prescription expires unless you call or write them. Comparable 9V batteries sell for $1.29-$4. A comparable TENS unit costs between $32-$99 on Amazon, with replacement electrodes costing about $2-5 each. The actual Zynex Nexwave is being sold on Amazon for $500: http://www.amazon.com/NexWave-IFC-TE...5774644&sr=1-1

Doctors should know better than to prescribe something so costly when cheaper alternatives are available, but then again, I buy generic drugs for a fraction of the price and I drink water from the tap (almost free).

Default Re: Never Use Zynex IFC, Not True IFC

I have had the truewave for 3 years now. There were some insurance issues which I expected. Your Dr can't just hand you equipment, it has to go through ins auth etc. but I took it because I had the option of bringing back. As I guessed ins denied. I called zynex and negotiated purchasing for $200, paying $50 a month. Love the unit, miss the supplies they would send. However one of my cables went bad, I called and they sent me a new set for free. Now it won't work on battery, only plugged in which is how I use 90% of the time but I would like portability. I just emailed them tonight, so I'm curious what kind of response I will get. I must say their leads were superior to what I gave been purchasing on eBay, but I'm not paying $10 a set. So far I've been satisfied, I'll return to let you all know the outcome.
