Story

This is the Tens Therapy Smart Relief, it is a cheap muscle relaxer that can be used to contract muscles using electricity. I took it apart and found that the buttons work by having a rubber pad complete the circuit, so all I need to do is connect a couple pins on the Arduino to the power and plus button using two NPN transistors.
Here is my board soldered up with all necessary components.
Here Is a picture of the wires soldered to the positive leads on the board as well as the enclosure back on the board.
Once everything was soldered together I followed the guide that comes with the Microsoft Remote Arduino and got it connected to WiFi and the Remote Arduino App.
