compex 120 mA (milliamps) 
= represented by 999 
intensity level on the unit

For programs inducing a sustained muscular contraction (eg: strength, endurance, resistance), the number of muscle fibres recruited depends on the stimulation intensity reached. 

The maximum stimulation intensity must therefore be used in order to engage as many fibres as possible.
Below certain stimulation intensity, the number of fibres engaged is too low to considerably improve the quality of the muscles

Compex maximum impulse intensity is 120mA per channel
(represented by 999 intensity level on the unit). A device able to produce an optimal impulse with the ideal current is a must when trying to reach the maximum level of intensity. 
Why? Safety, comfort, efficiency.

Other EMS devices in the market can't offer the same 120mA power considering the variations in skin resistance.

Optimal Impulse

& Ideal Current

The fundamental law of electric muscle stimulation is an international scientific consensus. The research papers have shown that these fundamental principles need to meet three criteria:
A) Eliminate all potential of risk = SAFETY
B) Allow the best feeling for the user = COMFORT
C) Obtain the best effects according to the desired objectives = EFFICIENCY 

Compex fully assumes its responsibility as the industry leader. 
Compex devices are equipped with the technology to produce a stable and controlled waveform through a constant current generator, offering its users the ideal current and optimal impulses regardless of the variations in skin resistance. 

Regulated Voltage Generators can’t offer the same optimal results (safe, comfort, and efficiency) considering the variations in skin resistance.

Muscle Intelligence Technology

The unique and revolutionary Muscle-Intelligence Technology created by research laboratories offers a whole new level of treatments. 

The Mi-Technology scans your muscle prior to the session and automatically PERSONALISES the stimulation parameters to the physiology of each user, at the time of each particular session. Thanks to the mi-sensor, a new world of precision and effectiveness has opened up in your sessions. 

Muscle imbalances, fatigue, dehydration, and nerve damage are some reasons why having a personalized stimulation is key for optimal results

The Muscle-Intelligence Technology is unique to the Compex brand and its devices.


The Compex range starts with a minimum of 10 programs and goes up to 40 programs in total. The programs are divided into 5 different categories: 

Conditioning: improve the capabilities of your muscles (eg: endurance, strength, explosive strength, power) by targeting specifically slow twitch or fast twitch muscle fibres.

Fitness: tone, sculpt and build your muscles.

Recovery/Massage:  Increase blood flow, reduce muscle tension, and promote a relaxing endorphinic effect to accelerate restoration of the muscular qualities. 

Pain Management: relieve and/or prevent aching pains and increase endorphin production.  

Rehabilitation: regain muscle volume, strength and speed of contraction.
