Muscle Stimulation - Compex

If you are looking to  recover from an injury or operation or improve your sporting performance - whether as a complement to, or occasionally to replace voluntary physical activity - Compex muscle stimulation is the machine for you.

 

Compex (Computerised exercise) is a form of electrical stimulation which has many benefits by targeting specific muscle groups which you are unable to isolate in the gym alone. This leads to faster post-operative and training recovery and pain relief without the need for medication. Compex has undergone rigorous medical testing and has been proven to:

 

  • Increase muscle strength by up to 27%

  • Increase muscle volume by up to 8%

  • Decrease lactic acid by up to 25%

  • 20 minutes of Compex is equivalent to 350 crunches and 160 squats

Physiolistic physiotherapists make up just a handful of healthcare professionals in the UK who are accredited as Advanced Compex practitioners. They are therefore perfectly placed to provide you with a tailor made programme to suit your rehabilitation, recovery or sports performance needs. 

 

The Compex machines can be hired out on a weekly or monthly basis or are available to purchase from the clinic for those who want it as a long term exercise partner. Many of our patients end up purchasing either an SP4 or SP8 once they recognise the benefits of the machine.
