Electrostimulation can be used in an intense way in complete safety:

  • Without causing nervous fatigue
  • By protecting your joints
  • Electrostimulation has no side effects; it is a non-invasive treatment method, often an effective alternative to drugs, for pain treatment.

Electrotherapy is a tried and tested medical treatment method, used for rehabilitation, pain treatment and for training sportsmen and women.

The working principle behind electrostimulation is very simple. It faithfully reproduces the process by which muscle contractions are controlled by the brain. So, with electrostimulation, the activity in your muscles is triggered by electrical impulses sent by our devices to the motor nerve. Your muscle cannot distinguish between a contraction triggered by your brain and one triggered by electrostimulation. This is known as electrically induced contraction.

Using Compex products

No. Muscular stimulation and electrotherapy in general has existed for decades and no problems have ever been found.

The positive connection (red) must be placed on the electrode which is on the muscle motor point. The negative connection (clear/black) is placed on the electrode which is on the muscle path.

Where to place the electrodes is indicated in the Compex manuals for the different muscle groups.
