Compex EMS Stimulator?
« on: April 24, 2012, 09:17:14 pm »
Does anyone have any experience using one of these for aiding recovery after riding each day, when you're doing a multi-day ride like a cross-country? I'm doing some physical therapy on my calf and achilles in anticipation of a Northern Tier ride in June, and my physical therapist recommended buying and bringing a Compex ems machine with me, but I have to say I'm a bit dubious. Very hard to find anything on the web other than shill pieces by the manufacturer.

I have the older Globus unit which is basically the same thing.  Works great.  I am recovering from surgery on the ankle with complications and since the legs had started to atrophe, I am using the unit to rebuild the muscles.
