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.

Do not use if (contraindications):
- Fitted with an electronic implanted device such as a heart pacemaker or Automatic Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (AICD)
- You are pregnant
- Being treated for, or have the symptoms of, an existing Deep Vein Thrombosis (“DVT”)
Long periods of inactivity can put you at greater risk of developing Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). DVT is a blood clot and usually occurs in a deep leg vein. If part of the DVT breaks off it may lead to potentially life-threatening complications such as pulmonary embolism.
If you have been inactive for prolonged periods and suspect you may have a DVT, consult your doctor immediately. To prevent dislodging the clot do not use Revitive. In some cases of DVT there may be no symptoms. However it is important to be aware of the symptoms that may include:
- pain, swelling and tenderness in one of your legs (usually your calf)
- a heavy ache in the affected area
- warm skin in the area of the clot
- redness of your skin, particularly at the back of your leg, below the knee
Consult your doctor as soon as possible if you show any signs of the above symptoms.
