Can someone with an amputated leg use the Revitive Circulation Booster?
Hi Pamela C. To create the electrical circuit using the foot pads a user would need to place one foot on each pad. However you can use the electrode body pads to deliver Electrical Muscle Stimulation to the legs and other areas of the body. If you would like more information on this, please feel free to contact our Customer Service Team (07 5443 9767) and they can talk you through the pad placement options to work different muscle groups. Warm Regards, Actegy Health AUSTRALIA.

I bought my Revitive last year when I was already suffering from swollen legs & ankles due to spending too much time sitting working in hot weather. I didn't use it much because of fears that I might already be at risk of DVT. This year, I've started using it before my legs start to swell. I'm using it daily on a not particularly high setting. Enough to make my calf muscles twitch without cramping. I've been experiencing rhythmic vibrations in my legs at other times of the day, when sitting or lying down. I'm not sure if it's a sign of improved circulation or nerve damage caused by the process. Is this a know side-effect of the machine?
I use mine on a daily basis and have received enormous benefits. I use it on a high setting and I do get the same sensation, but it doesn’t concern me as it only lasts for a reasonably short period of time. I find the benefits far outweigh anything else. Good luck.Hi Trevor J, Thanks for your enquiry. Ongoing vibrations in your legs is not a known side effect that we are aware of. We would suggest that you discontinue use and have a chat to your doctor to be cautious. If you wish to discuss further, please feel free to give our Customer Service Team a call on 07 5443 9767. Warm Regards, Actegy Health AUSTRALIA.

Had a tkr 7 weeks ago and I can’t feel any of the pulses from the machine in my operative leg. Why is that?
Hi Marion, I hope your recovery is going smoothly. Are you feeling the stimulation in your other (non-operative) leg? If yes, I can assume your device is working ok? If you are not feeling it in either leg let me know and I can talk you through some trouble shooting. If you are feeling stimulation in the other leg, then it is hard to say for sure why you are not feeling it in your operative leg. We recommend using caution when using REVITIVE within 6 months of a surgery to ensure your healing process is not interrupted. Perhaps your recovery may be a factor. We would recommend that you check in with your Doctor before continuing to use REVITIVE. They may be able to give you a more effective response with a full picture of your procedure and the progress of your recovery. If you would like to discuss further, please feel free to contact our Customer Service Team on 07 5443 9767 Warm Regards, Actegy Health AUSTRALIA.

can I use a Revitive Medic while suffering a fractured Clavlcle?
Hi Peter, Thanks for your question. I just want to clarify - are you looking for relief for your injury or enquiring about the safety to use or continue to use REVITIVE while recovering? If you are using REVITIVE via the foot pads to assist you with circulation or other indicated purposes, then your injury should not impact this. EMS delivered via the foot pads will stimulate your lower leg muscles, We do not recommend applying the electrode body pads anywhere near your injury. REVITIVE is not indicated to assist you with your clavicle injury. If in any doubt it would be worth discussing with your doctor - they will have a full picture of your condition and stage of your recovery. If we can be of any further assistance, please feel free to call our Customer Service team on 07 5443 9767 Warm Regards, Actegy Health Australia.thank you, it is just for help with circulation as the injury means I have to sit for long periods of time.Hi Peter - thanks for clarifying. I thought that might be the case. All the best for your recovery. Actegy Health.

is it safe to use this machine if you have spinal stenosis?
Hi Jim, From what I understand your condition is primarily impacting the nerves within the spine of the lower or upper back. This should not impact your ability to use REVITIVE safely, however we do recommend anyone with an existing medical condition has a chat with their Doctor to be certain. Your doctor will have a better picture of your condition and any other relevant medical history. It is also worthwhile reviewing the contraindications for our device which can be viewed here -https://www.revitive.com.au/can-i-use/ I hope this is helpful.

Have had a crook neck for a couple of years had physio but to no avail can I use the revitive pads in the neck and shoulder area ..cheers Bob W..
Hi Bob, Body pads cannot be used on the head, face, neck or chest. They can however be used in the shoulder region - above the shoulder blades on either side of the spine (not on the spine) is optimal positioning for shoulder pain. There are some recommended positions shown in your REVITIVE user manual and with the instructions that come with the body pads when they are purchased individually. I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact us for further information. Our Customer Service team can be reached on 07 5443 9767 or email@example.com Warm Regards, Actegy Health AUSTRALIA.Thanks for that..
Can u use this if u have metal pins In your ankle and had a stroke a few years ago
Hi Christy, We do recommend anyone with any pre-existing medical condition check in with their doctor before they use REVITIVE. With regards to the metallic implants, you are still able to use REVITIVE. The electrical stimulation may feel more intense close to a metallic implant. It is safe to continue use provided no pain is experienced. You may need to adjust the intensity to a comfortable level. If any pain or discomfort is noticed you should occur discontinue use and seek advice from your doctor If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our Customer Service Team on 07 5443 9767. Warm Regards, Actegy Health AUSTRALIA.Thanku so much for your help. Regards Christy
why does it automatically have a 30 minute setting and you recommend 20 minutes especially because it goes through different cycles. thanks
Hi Carol, That is a good question. The 20 minutes recommendation is for a person who is using Electrical Muscle Stimulation for the first time. The idea is to ease an individual to the stimulation because like an exercise, when a person has not exercised for a long time, it is recommended to start off slow and slowly build up the routine. When a person has familiarised with the sensation of Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), then the recommendation is to go upto at least 30 minutes daily. A person can also use EMS upto an hour each time, and a maximum of 6 half hour sessions or the equivalent per day. Hope this helps clarify. If you have any other questions, feel free to write in or call us at 07-5443 9767. Best regards, Actegy Health AUSTRALIA
What is the best level to use revitive on ?
Hi Wendy, It is very individual - there is no right answer for everyone. REVITIVE uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation and, just like with exercise, you need to start off slowly. We suggest that you start off on a low setting until you are used to the sensation. We then suggest you slowly increase the intensity until you are feeling strong (non-painful) contractions in your calf muscles. We do find that the majority of people use REVITIVE at an intensity of 40 or more. I hope this is helpful, please feel free to contact our customer service team if you have any further questions - 07 5443 9767 Warm Regards, Actegy Health AUSTRALIA.Thank you
