It works great for my swollen ankles
It helps when used regularly. I used it one to two times a day. I highly recommend it for swollen feet and ankles. I hope it works for the legs as well. I will continue to use it regularly.
Great product. Helped me enormously with swelling of ankles and lower legs.
My lower legs were swollen and looked horrible making it difficult to walk. Within days swelling went away. Great product. Had a mishap with the lead and was unable to use for a while and swelling returned. All good now.
Purchased in February 2019 for $399.00.
Sorry not for me
Didn't help with my peripheral neuropathy, seemed to make the condition worse, not better. The product is well made and having rechargeable battery and remote made using it very simple.
Not Sure Yet
I use my Revitive daily for 30 mins and have been doing so now for over a month. I originally purchased the machine as it advertised it may be beneficial for my Neuropathy in the feet. Has it helped? I'm not sure yet. It certainly has not done any harm and I find the treatment quite enjoyable. I really need to use it for 3 to 4 months to really see any impact on Neuropathy and blood circulation. The Jury is still out on this one!
My new lifestyle
HI folks I sprained my ankle and since then my foot was in constant pain for the past 9 months. I got the medic model in the past 2 weeks of using it my feet have not felt this good for years if in doubt try at your local chemist or retailers it's worth 30 minutes of your time . Give it a go.
Absolutely love it.
I used to suffer with body stiffness and bad aching legs, with regular uses most symptoms are 90% gone. Money well spent.
It is what it is
Seems to be OK but not sure yet if it is helping with the problems I have. It's alright when using it though and not an unpleasant feeling.
Excellent so far.
.Have been using revitive for about a month.It seems to be helping with stiffness in both my feet. I would recommend it to anyone with soreness in their legs.
Revitive medic review
My husband and I love this machine, We both use it every day . My husband has Parkinson’s and it helps his cramps and stiffness in his legs. It helps my varicose veins and knees ! Could not be with out it.
Waste of Money
I found it did nothing for my wife's feet issues. It was a complete waste of money and difficult to return as well. Still stuck with it today.
I thought it doesn't work but it did.
I thought it didn't work after using it regularly for 2 weeks on lower level, but when i increased it to a level where i can feel my calf muscle shaking and vibrating,, the swelling of the foot becane less.
Terrible product shameful company
We tried revitive for 2 weeks, then decided it wasnt helping leg problems. It had a money back guarantee so we sent it back, We are still waiting for the money back 8 weeks later, have rung 5 times and been told a lot of different stories but still no money, Ombudsman is the next step.
60-Day Sample Size
I ordered this item (Revitive Medic) back in late May of 2018. Like most people, I was looking for some basic relief from my Fibromyalgia and Neuropathy.....without all the drugs. And after practicing my due diligence research-wise (YouTube, public forums, online reviews and advertising,) I ordered this product using the Readers Digest insert.
Ordering is simple. Delivery was 3-5 days via Canada Post.
Before I continue, I also want to comment that I talked this over with my MD before making the purchase. And he wrote me up a prescription for this device. So, it's not as if I just ordered without first putting some thought behind this.
The first week, I started off at 55. Then gradually increased my way up to 75. 30 minutes per day. At the end of week 1, I had to stop. My legs were just killing me. So I stopped for a few days, gave my legs a rest, and started back at 55. And I stayed there. I didn't want a repeat performance. Same same. My legs were killing me. Mornings were just horrible. Again, I stopped for several days, then went back. But I decreased my time to 20 minutes. In all honesty, some days, it would take a good 2-3 minutes for my legs to feel anything. The reason for starting at such a high number to begin with. I couldn't even feel anything below 50.....no sensation at all. I also noticed that I was getting edema.....enormous swelling in my calves, ankles, and feet. My toes are numb, the skin is tight, the skin is drying out, and I'm having trouble walking because it feels like I have vices around my calves. Never ever had this condition before. And I'm not taking any more chances with this unit.
Went back to my MD, and showed him the results. Now I'm on Furosemide (Lasix) to deal with the salt/water retention from using this unit.
So, I'm going to return this item. In all honesty, I don't think there's anything particularly wrong with the unit or the technology. It's all me. I've had almost a month and a half sample-size to guage the effectiveness and usefulness of it. But, from my perspective and experience, it's going to be shipped back. It's hurting me, it's not helping me.
The item has been treated respectfully from day-1. It's cleaned repeatedly, and stored away for the next use. The carrying case has not even been opened, nor has the back-up set of Tens pads or the foot lotion. It's all sitting in the original box. And the purpose of ordering the unit was more or less a contingency plan. Prove it either works effectively for me. Or not. And I have to truthfully state that, in my case, it does not. If it helps you, then great...I hope it's everything you expected it to be. But I also want to give this heads-up to others like me that may be in the same situation. Tread lightly. If it's hurting you, then stop. And don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Not even their Customer Service. They are not your MD. This is your health. And do what's best for you, and no one but you.
And on another note, being one of those in the 20% that will be returning this product: Reviews are from all perspectives. Both positive, neutral, and negative. And I trust that the Webmaster here does not delete my post simply because I'm not in the 80%. These are my thoughts and opinions, and that's just the way it is. Like it or not. I don't want someone else to go through what I went through. And this is the only way to inform them. Agreed?
To finish off, I have indeed returned the unit. Customer Service was based in Chicago. But the girl I spoke with ([name removed]) was really professional and cool about everything. Very helpful. A return label was generated via Canada Post, and that was that. So, in regards to Customer Service, I had a really good experience. They listened to me, never once felt intimidated or disrespected. Did what they could to facilitate the return.

Like having 20 Japanenese masseurs work on my legs!
Bought the Medic. Great price and love the portability. Postage was super fast. I have swollen, numb legs with odema and I think diabetes pain although I disputed the diabetes diagnosis as I don’t want to take drugs. Very strange sensation like a Tens machine but when I turned it up it felt like 20 masseurs were working on my legs. I only did a session of about 10 minutes at 65 power. All the power and electronic thumping soon brought back a lot of circulation to my left foot which has a lot of numbness. . I didn’t use cream. My wife is a diabetic and has foot and knee pain and although I didn’t buy it for her specifically because she never likes electronic stuff, she tried it and loved it and said it got circulation in her feet going and thinks it will help her knee arthritis on higher power and is keen to use it. I’m finding it kind of addictive as far as wanting to go back again and use it because it seems to give me a lot of relief and my legs get swollen and burning a lot. I’m 64 years.
I did an aweful lot of research on this so it’s not a novelty for me. My wife can’t massage my feet daily and neither can I hers but we need stimulation so the Circulation Booster is an ideal electronic circulation stimulator able to do the job of many people without getting tired for only the cost of electricity. My feet have been numb, sore and swollen for years and I’ve needed massage desperately and now I can care for my feet and legs without waiting on a tired person to do it for me with this product. I highly recommend it. It’s NOT a gimmick or novelty. No person can stimulate poor leg circulation better than this.
I believe it is starting to be helpful.
I believe it is starting to be helpful. I have little nerve conduction from my knees to my ankles due to back surgeries in addition to neuropathy. When I continue to go to the gym every other day I found there was no way I could work my calves. I am hoping that the medic will send pulses to my cans for a little assist. I find that my legs are tired after each session which I consider an indication that it might actually be working my calves.

I have been using this devise to help circulation in my legs. I have a lot of swelling in ankles and feet. I am more or less housebound and have lost a lot of muscle tone. I have not really noticed much difference as of yet I am reserving my opinion till I am at the 60 day mark. I do have to dampen my feet to feel anything. Not sure what that is.
I fractured my ankle four weeks ago today. I have used Revitive twice a day and the tens pads on site of fracture once a day. In the past week my ankle has improved a hundred per cent. After I use it I do the exercises prescribed by my physio. I am walking better than I have for ages. I would certainly recommend it. I feel it has strengthened both my ankles. Money well spent.

Just get one ......
Performs exactly as described ...
The sense of relief after a session is remarkable, people of varying age groups can benefit.
No fuss, easy to operate, charge, clean and store. Brilliant
At last. Some relief !!!
This machine is excellent and does what it says it will. I was reluctant to buy one at first but now couldn't be happier with the relief from swollen and aching legs that it has given me. I use it for 30 minutes a day and would certainly recommend a Revitive to anyone. It has made me feel so much healthier and more mobile than I have been in months, it is so easy to use and portable as well.......Fantastic!!!
Horrible waste of money
Bought this unit, paid $300 & didn't work past the 3rd use. As its over the 60 days.......oh well. Do not waste your money, definitely not worth it. Totally horrible.
