5 Reasons to Consider Circulation Boosters
There are many TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) Units currently available on the market as circulation boosters. A common device is the Circulation Booster, the TENS unit that resembles a household bathroom scale. Users put a gel on bare feet then stand on the device as the unit sends small electric shocks through the lower extremities to stimulate blood flow and improve circulation.
Before investing in a Circulation Booster, it is important to take a complete look at what the solution involves, what a person needs for their day-to-day lifestyle, and what other solutions can offer.
Here are 5 things to remember about the Circulation Booster.
1. Poor Mobility
Your mobility is limited with the Circulation Booster. In particular, the device cannot be used during any type of activity. Instead, the devices require you to be sitting or standing in place while the device stimulates the legs. Walking, running or cycling while using the device is not possible.
2. Limited Upward Pump
The Circulation Booster causes some stimulation, but it is not a pump action that consistently pushes blood back towards the heart. The problem here is that most users have faulty valves in the leg veins. Without the pump action, the blood will continue back-flowing and pooling in the lower extremities
3. Limited Portability
The Circulation Booster cannot be worn comfortably or discretely under clothing. It is a major issue for quality of life and maintenance of your daily routine. Remember that the Revitive cannot be used while performing everyday activities such as working, exercising, sleeping or travelling.
4. Not Appropriate for All Users
Since Circulation Booster uses electric shocks, there are not appropriate for certain people, including:
Patients with pacemakers
Those with heart troubles
The Circulation Booster may be used without medical oversight, but people who feel unsure about whether it works for them should always consult their doctor before use.
Similarly, elite athletes who use devices to enhance circulation and increase their recovery time may find that the bathroom scale-type devices are not as convenient or practical for the demands of their training schedules.
5. Not Useful for Air Travel
During air travel is one of the times that the lower extremities tend to swell and a circulatory device may be helpful. However, the bathroom scale-style Circulation Booster cannot be easily used on an aircraft. As such, they are not practical for people who travel frequently.
Venowave Offers Benefits
As a convenient, discreet device, the Venowave is preferable to the bathroom scale-type units. The Venowave is comfortable, and it does not require gels or bare feet. It can be used with your everyday activities, including exercising, travelling or working.
The Venowave has been scientifically proven to alleviate the symptoms of a wide variety of circulation-related conditions. It sits on the back of the calf and mimics the body’s vein system by forcing the blood from the affected leg. The pumping action reduces swelling, pain, and heaviness.
