This review is from: Homedics Circulation Device (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Out of the box there is a foot plate with pads, which looks like a set of scales, lead and plug, remote control, batteries and four body pads. All the pads have electrodes, which deliver an electric stimulus. The amount is controllable on a scale from 1-99, direct on the foot plate, or from the remote control. The foot, or sole, pads are controlled separately to the body pads.

This is marketed as a home-medical product, primarily to improve lower limb circulation. I cannot comment on that, as I do not have a problem with lower limb circulation, and the manual does not reference any research. What it does do, is stimulate muscles, which is likely to help circulation. Each session lasts for 30 minutes. The manual does warn that the level should be selected individually, to the point where the stimulation can be felt. I did try the maximum level for my feet, but had to turn it down after a couple of minutes. After use, I found my lower legs had a warm tingly feeling for at least an hour. I have had a back problem in the past, which affected the feeling in my feet, so I don't know if this is related, or that sensation would be replicated in others.

The first time I tried this, I only used the sole pads, where you sit with your bare feet placed on the foot plate. The second time I also used the four flexible body pads on muscles higher up my leg. The body pads are like a toning belt, except you have complete control over where the pads go. The manual suggests it can be used to ease sore muscles, as well as toning.

I really liked this. Its really easy to use, and that in itself makes it appealing.
