“CircuPlus uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation to simulate the act of normal exercise, generate a pleasant warmth and efficiently massage the user, resulting in a general feeling of relaxation and comfort. The massage effect of CircuPlus may help alleviate pains, tensions and could sooth aches”.
The Actegy Health Revitive Advanced and Optimum CircuPlus massagers both use the latest in Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology to stimulate blood flow and loosen tense muscles. The two models come with a broad range of intensity levels, from 1 to 99, and the option of using manual or automatic settings.
In terms of functionality, both appliances come with digital panels and press buttons as well as remote controls. The CircuPlus weighs 2 KG while the Revitive is a little heavier at 2.25 KG, but both have similar dimensions making them easy to carry.
The design of the two massagers is slightly different. The Revitive is supported in the centre allowing it to rock back and forth while the CircuPlus is angled so the toes are higher than the heels.
On the benefit front, the CircuPlus comes with 25 EMS wave forms compared to 15 for the Revitive Advanced. A greater range means muscles don’t get used to a contraction pattern. The Optimum model also comes with a thermal heating function that can warm the foot pads up to 45°; something the Actegy massager doesn’t offer.
For even more versatility, both the Revitive Advanced and the CircuPlus, come with electrode pads that can be applied to other areas of the body for a soothing effect. However, the Optimum model comes with twice as many pair (4 pairs versus 2 for the Revitive).
Circulation is the movement of blood in the body, through the pumping action of the heart to supply oxygenated blood throughout the organism.
Returning blood to and from the extremities of the body, such as legs, feet and hands require more work. Hence, the surrounding muscles of the veins and arteries will be required to help move the blood along. For example, when we walk, muscles in our feet and legs help to pump blood upwards, in the same way as you would squeeze liquid along a tube.
Circulation generally deteriorates as we age. However, due to the prevalently sedentary lifestyle of most people, circulation problems can affect anyone who is not as active as they should be. Symptoms of poor circulation include cold hands and feet, muscle cramps and tired, ‘heavy’ or aching legs. A healthy lifestyle based on healthy habits, adequate exercise and a balanced diet is required to ensure healthy circulation.
If you are unable to always maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, the CircuPlus could be a great way to improve circulation, while enjoying a relaxing, warm massage that will sooth and balance your mind and body.
Easy and convenient, all you need to do is to place your feet on the CircuPlus, sit back and enjoy the overall feeling of comfort and relaxation.
CircuPlus is designed as an effective, relaxing massager that could help boost circulation in the legs and feet using Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS). EMS is an advanced technology used to mimic the neuromuscular responses in your body to induce involuntary muscle contractions. Using this technology, the CircuPlus may be able to induce a ‘pumping’ action in your lower legs by ‘tricking’ the muscles in your lower legs to ‘squeeze’ the blood vessels surrounding the muscles, and therefore could boost blood circulation. EMS technology simulates the act of normal exercise, causing the muscles in the lower legs and feet to repeatedly contract and relax - meaning you will benefit from the results of normal exercise while seated and enjoying a relaxing massage.
Additionally, our CircuPlus is designed with 3 thermal heating modes on the foot pads, to achieve better results in a shorter time. Choose from 37°C, 40.5°C and 45°C heating modes anytime during your EMS foot massage to enjoy the soothing warmth of our thermal heating foot pads.
Blood circulation is the movement of your blood cells through the network of blood vessels in your body. All oxygenated blood gets pumped out of the heart through the arteries, while deoxygenated blood flows back to the heart to be oxygenated again through veins.
When one area of your body is experiencing poor blood circulation, it means somewhere, your blood flow is blocked. Your body will be unable to receive the adequate amount of oxygen and nutrients it requires and prolonged poor circulation can lead to dire health problems, including Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Vertigo, Blood Clots and Cardiovascular Disease.
In fact, one of the symptoms of Diabetes is the swelling of feet and ankles as a result of poor circulation. Nerve damage, circulation problems and infections can cause serious foot problems for people with Diabetes. Sometimes nerve damage can deform your feet, causing pressure points to turn into blisters, sores or ulcers. Poor circulation can cause these injuries to heal slowly, sometimes resulting in amputation of a toe, foot, or leg.
Symptoms of having poor circulation, include having cold feet and hands, muscle aches, strains and cramps, and experiencing numbness due to restricted blood flow. These problems can be improved through improving circulation in the lower leg.
People suffering from Peripheral Artery Disease also inherently suffer from reduced blood flow to the limbs, usually affecting the legs. Peripheral artery disease is generally caused by Atherosclerosis, which is a build-up of fatty deposits (plaque) in the artery walls.
Poor circulation left unaddressed can develop into some serious disorders leading to varicose veins, kidney damage and stroke.
