Findings of clinical research studies
Revitive Circulation Booster® uses clinically-proven Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology. Below are some of the research studies that have been carried out with both Revitive Circulation Booster and the technology it uses, Electrical Muscle Stimulation.
EMS is a widely used and well recognised technology that has been shown to help with the symptoms associated with poorer circulation and the relief of symptoms associated with some medical conditions (such as Diabetes and Osteoarthritis).
In this trial, knee osteoarthritis patients were randomised into either of two groups: a group receiving an exercise program and a group receiving the same exercise program plus electrical stimulation of the quadriceps femoris for 6 weeks. Both groups demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in pain comparing pre- with post- measures. Statistical analysis indicated a statistically significantly greater improvement in pain for the 'exercise plus electrical stimulation' group. This result shows that the addition of EMS to an exercise program increases the improvement in pain state for these patients.
