The Muscle Stimulater Secret Cost, Buyer Beware

Sooo, my new WONDERFUL EMPI electro thingy for my legs...I am now getting a call per day from fast-talking men wanting to sell me additional pads. I KNEW there was a gimmick here somewhere: NOW I am told the pads you stick with electrodes to your muscles only last 12 applications. I am offered (after FORCING HIM TO SPEAK SLOWER!) 4 pads for $30 but "yourinsurancewillpayforit."

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I worked on phones in customer service for 18 years and I know EVERY trick. Talking fast, obscuring facts, starting off point "How are your electrodes working?" all just gimmicks, a means to an untoward end.

When I imagine the disabled and elderly who these salesmen have 'played' it just infuriates me. I really let the guy today have it. He even tried to blame my neurologist! I told him the District Manager admitted that HE dropped the ball in explaining the device to my neurologist. That threw the salesman for a loop---an honest rep?!

Anyway, now I will search on line for cheaper pads, or prepare to budget for $120/month.
