His devices use TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), EMS (electrical muscle stimulation), NMES, and DR-HO’S proprietary AMP technology to provide mild and gentle pulse therapy to relax and relieve muscles. In the last four decades, this company has seen international success throughout all of Canada and the United States.
