The Empi Select first became available in February of 2007. Empi has been a market leader and innovator of non-invasive pain management for more than 30 years. The Select is their first product introduction since they merged with Compex Technologies, Inc. in 2006. Drawing on the strengths of both companies Empi has solidified their presence in the market.
The Empi Select is a cost effective Pain Management System. Patients and doctors can be comfortable knowing that each patient will receive proper electro-therapy treatment. While not fool proof, the units are very easy to operate. Again follow your doctor’s directions.
The select is so small that concealment is easy, and appropriate for wearing to work, play or just out and about. Once set, the patient can go about their lives paying very little attention as the unit works its preset program.
