A: For most people it takes a few weeks of daily usage of REVITIVE, before they start to feel the benefit. Some people start to see an improvement after only a few days, for others it may take 6-8 weeks, especially if they have been suffering for many years. Everyone's different and that's why, when you buy directly, we include a 60-day (8 week) trial period, so everyone has a chance to feel the REVITIVE benefit.
A: REVITIVE has been specifically designed to be used, at home, by people of all ages. The easy-to-read manual, as well as the remote control makes the device very simple to operate and easy to use. Simply turn REVITIVE on, place both bare feet on the pads, and set the intensity level. Then sit back, relax and let REVITIVE go to work.
A: REVITIVE should not be used by some people:
Consult with your doctor before using this device if:
• You are in the care of a doctor.
• You have a history of heart problems because the device may cause lethal rhythm disturbances to the heart in susceptible individuals.
• You are experiencing cramping leg pain that occurs during walking.
• You have slow healing wounds.
• You have loss of feeling in the hands or feet.
• You have had medical or physical treatment for your pain.
• You have suspected or diagnosed heart disease.
• You have suspected or diagnosed epilepsy.
• You are unsure about the suitability of the REVITIVE for you.
• You are unsure about the cause of your symptoms.
If you have a metallic implant, you may experience pain or discomfort near the implant when applying electrical stimulation, if this should occur discontinue use and seek advice from your doctor.
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.
Do not use the Body Pads on your head, face, neck or chest. There is a chance that serious health problems, and in rare cases death, may be caused by using the Body Pads on your head, face, neck or chest
• There is a chance that using the Body Pads on your head, face or neck may cause closure of the airway, difficulty in breathing, or adverse effects on heart rhythm or blood pressure.
• The introduction of electrical current into the chest may cause rhythm disturbances to your heart, which could be lethal.
• Use Body Pads only on parts of your body as directed in this guide.
Do not apply foot pads or body pads directly:
• On open wounds or rashes, swollen, red, infected, or inflamed areas or skin eruptions (such as phlebitis, thrombophlebitis, varicose veins, cellulitis).
• On or close to, cancerous lesions/tumors.
• On areas treated with radiotherapy (within the past 6 months).
• On reproductive organs.
Apply stimulation only to normal, intact, healthy skin.
Electrode Body Pads are for single person use only. Do not share body pads with others.
Do not use Body Pads after their use by date. There is a chance you may experience skin irritation or burns under the Body Pads.
Some people may experience skin irritation or hypersensitivity due to electrical stimulation or electrical conductive medium. The irritation can usually be reduced by using an alternative conductive medium or alternate electrode placement.
Symptoms may worsen during the initial treatment phase before getting better. This may occur if the body has not yet adjusted to increased muscular activity and blood circulation. If this occurs, reduce the intensity and the duration of treatment which will reduce the initial symptoms, if symptoms persist consult with your doctor.
A: It is recommended to use REVITIVE daily, for 20-30 minutes. Some people find they get additional benefit from using REVITIVE more than once a day.
A: All models of REVITIVE Circulation Booster boast this unique feature, of 15 different waveform patterns. To help avoid muscle habituation (where muscles start to contract less effectively when repeatedly doing the same thing) these 15 waveforms, each with a different pattern, stimulate the muscles in the optimal way, throughout each session. This means that the stimulation feeling changes slightly, roughly every minute, as REVITIVE works through the 15 waveforms.
A: REVITIVE should only be used when you are sitting down. Choose a chair or sofa which is close to a power socket. Place the REVITIVE on the floor next to the chair in front of where you will sit and plug it in. Sit on the chair and place your bare feet on the foot pads. Use the remote control or the buttons on the device to switch it on and begin the program. You can then increase the intensity to the desired level. Sit back and let REVITIVE go to work.
A: REVITIVE helps increase circulation throughout the lower legs, ankles and feet.

A: REVITIVE makes no operating noise. However it does beep at switch on and switch off, one beep at the start and three beeps at the end.
A: No. However, increasing blood circulation will naturally increase foot temperature, helping cold feet.
