Revive your day with REVITIVE
Help maintain good circulation in your lower legs & feet with REVITIVE Circulation Booster. As recommended by Sir Steve Redgrave - REVITIVE Circulation Booster uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to activate the muscles in your lower legs, thereby increasing circulation and providing fast acting relief from aches, pains and swelling. REVITIVE CX is our original Circulation Booster with an improved design and easier controls.
Everyone at some point has suffered leg pain and discomfort. For many this may just be an inconvenience. For others, tired, aching, swollen legs may severely impact their quality of life and prevent them from leading an active lifestyle.
REVITIVE Circulation Booster is a new medical device designed to alleviate the discomfort in the legs caused by poor circulation and improve overall leg health.
Poor leg circulation When your leg muscles are inactive for long periods while standing or sitting, the blood flow in the leg veins slow significantly and consequently blood and fluid begin to pool. This pooling creates pressure in the leg veins, causing the feeling of tired, aching and heavy legs. Poor leg health circulation is not only due to a sedentary lifestyle. Underlying medical conditions, lifestyle factors and age can damage the leg veins and arteries to impair circulation.
What are the symptoms of poor circulation?
There are some common symptoms to look out for if you’re suffering from poor circulation. If you are worried or if symptoms persist, you should consult your doctor.
Signs of poor circulation may include:
•Tired, aching or heavy-feeling legs
•Swollen feet and ankles (sometimes referred to as oedema)
•Cramping sensation in the buttocks, legs or feet
•The feeling of pins and needles or numbness in the legs or feet
•Your legs, feet, hands or arms feel cool and the skin may become discoloured
Who is at risk of developing poor circulation?
There are certain factors that may increase your chances of developing poor circulation, including:
•Being aged 50 or over
•Certain conditions or illnesses may increase your chances of developing poor circulation. These could include Diabetes, Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and high blood pressure*
•If you are immobile, for example wheelchair users, or if you are house or bed bound
•If your family has a history of vascular disease, heart attack or strokes
•Smoking or obesity
•If you sit or stand for long periods at work or at home or have a generally sedentary or inactive lifestyle
*if you suffer from long term or chronic conditions, please consult your doctor or your Boots pharmacist before using REVITIVE.
A healthy lifestyle may help reduce your susceptibility to poor circulation. Regular exercise and a healthy diet can all help maintain healthy circulation.
How does REVITIVE Circulation Booster work?
REVITIVE Circulation Booster activates your second heart by applying proven Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to the soles of your feet through two large foot pads. This EMS makes the foot and calf muscles contract and relax to create a pumping action. Immediately, blood is actively pushed back up your legs, providing fast acting relief from aches, pains and swelling associated with poor circulation.
