How Actipatch works: Blood flow in the body is regulated by electrical signals that travel along nerves. The Actipatch modifies these nerve signals, providing pain relief by enhancing blood flow which reduces inflammation and restores the injured tissue to a healthy state.
Actipatch is technology clinically proven: The Actipatch has been clinically proven through a series of clinical studies, of which more are ongoing, at leading medical institutions. The technology has been used for decades in hospitals and clinics and has received an overwhelming amount of positive testimonials from consumers.
Patient will feel: The patient will not feel heat nor will feel the low level energy that is gently pulsed into the cells to heal damaged tissue.
How long until pain relief: Depending on the severity of the injury, patient pain levels can begin to subside after only 2-3 hours of wearing the device and will continue to decrease as long as the device is being used continuously or between 8-24 hours per day. However, in some instances it could take longer for the therapy to take effect.
