With age, the feet tend to get more problematic, often due to the development of conditions such as arthritis. The knees become stiff and sore. The ankles and feet become swollen and painful. Your leg muscles get weaker, which can significantly limit your movement.
Similar to the other Revitive circulation boosters, Revitive Dual Action delivers safe and measured electrical simulation to your feet, which in turn boosts circulation throughout the legs. Combined with the rocking movement of the foot pads (so called Dual-Action technology), these stimulations help to strengthen leg muscles, reduce swelling and improve mobility.

What are you buying?
1. Double-action footpads
The main components of the Revitive Dual Action are the two footplates on which you place your legs on. The dual footpads work in two ways.
The first is through electrical stimulation. Electrical waves are transmitted to your legs through your feet. They cause leg muscles to contract and relax repeatedly, which makes them stronger, improves flexibility and boosts blood circulation. It is important to note that the electrical stimulation is completely safe (however, see my note on doctor consultation below).
This reduces swelling, pain and inflammation. Even if you do not suffer from arthritis, these stimulations can help you relax after a long day of walking or standing up.
The second action involves rocking your feet back and forth. As your feet move, your ankles and knees get some workout. Again, this boosts circulation and strengthens the muscles. It also improves flexibility, which combats stiff knees and ankles.
2. Arthritis pads
The action is not just restricted to your feet. In the box, you will find a pair of arthritis pads. These are meant to be used on the thighs. These pads apply electrical stimulation to the thigh muscles which connect to the knees.
This achieves two goals: better blood circulation and stronger muscles. While the foot pads strengthen the knees from below the pads strengthen the knees from above. The combined effect is much more potent than if you just used the foot pads on their own.
3. Intensity levels
The foot pads come with 99 different intensity levels. You can opt for lower intensity when starting out until you get used to the initially strange feeling. With time, you can keep revving up the intensity until you get to your ideal comfort level.
How easy is it to use?
The Revitive Dual Action is really easy to use. The package comes with simple instructions to help you get started. Once you are comfortably seated, place your bare feet on the foot plates. Alternatively, place the pads on your thighs.
Switch the unit on and set the most comfortable intensity level. The best part is that it comes with a remote control. So there is no need to keep bending over to change the settings or switch it off. Once you sit back and relax, you can stay that way until the end of the session (around 20-30 minutes).
What accessories are included?
There will be remote batteries provided when you buy the Revitive Dual Action. Inside the box you will also find an AC/DC adaptor. No other accessories are required.

Anything else you should know?
While the Revitive Dual Action has been proven safe as a medical device, it is still important to consult your doctor first especially if you have a long term health condition. Your doctor will also be able to advice you whether the device has any benefits for your condition.
But for most people, the Revitive Dual Action can be used without any worries since it is drug-free and the electrical stimulations are very mild and harmless.
Another point to note; this device is not just for those with arthritis. It can also be used as a foot massager at the end of a long day especially for those who tend to develop swollen and sore feet after a lot of walking or standing up.
Many customers report immediate relief after using the Revitive Dual Action. They say their knees are less painful and they feel more flexible. Most importantly, they have experienced increased mobility with less discomfort and pain.
