If you have read my two previous reviews of Revitive circulation boosters, you know that Revitive devices represent a drug-free alternative to maintain and improve your circulatory system. Revitive IX Circulation Booster has some exclusive features that neither the Revitive CX nor Revitive LV models have.
The unit works with electric muscle stimulation (EMS) to increase leg circulation by stimulating the muscles in your feet and lower legs. In addition to what CX and LV models offer, it also includes new Widepulse Waveforms and IsoRocker that will enhance your overall experience. Read on to find out more.

What are you buying?
Revitive IX is an innovative and award-winning device that includes two exclusive features that Revitive CX and LV models don’t offer:
- Widepulse Waveforms (provide more comfortable stimulation)
- IsoRocker (allows ankle joint exercise)
This product is actually a medical device that has been designed for the purpose of alleviating discomfort caused by poor circulation in the legs. It is marketed as a device that improves leg health overall by increasing lower leg blood circulation. The result experienced by people is a reduction of swelling in the feet and ankles and an alleviation of discomfort and pain.
You should check the TV ad below in which Sir Ian Botham is talking about how the device had helped him.
When you use EMS, it works by causing calf muscles to relax and contract. This creates a pumping action that increases blood circulation. The result is almost instantaneous relief from swelling, pains and aches, which many people confirmed. Daily use for about 20-30 minutes should bring about noticeable benefits to overall health and well-being.
From the two new functions I mentioned above, I liked the IsoRocker that is designed to create ankle joint movement, which increases the blood circulation around your ankles. It is effectively a roller underneath the device which should eventually help reduce swelling in your ankles and feet.
I couldn’t really see any additional effect of the Widepulse Waveforms but the manufacturer claims this patented feature makes the effect of the circulation booster more comfortable.
How easy is it to use?
Nothing could be simpler than using the Revitive IX. Just place your feet on the foot pads and press the buttons or use the remote control to select the intensity level you want. You can adjust the intensity level all the way from 1 to 99.
Depending on the power level you set (I find around 30-40 is best for me), your muscles will tingle and you will feel it work although sometimes it takes a while until you feel something. This wide range of choices makes it easy to select a level that is both effective (causing muscle contraction in the legs), comfortable and rejuvenating.
Compared to Revitive CX, there is no beeping while changing the intensity level and the control seems to be a bit more responsive.
What accessories are included?
Here’s what you’ll find when you open your Revitive IX box:
- Instructions for use
- 4 x TENS electrode pads (for use on other parts of body)
- 4 dust pad protectors
- Revitive IX device
- 2 x AA batteries
- AC/DC adaptor
- Remote control
Key feauters of Revitive IX Circulation Booster
It is difficult to create a pros and cons section for this product because my experience has been very positive:
- Great performance and functionalities – in addition to its great performance, things such as 1-99 intensity settings, digital display and remote control all contributed to the overall very positive experience I had with this circulation booster.
- Comfortable – Angled incline of this device makes its use much more comfortable than other circulation boosters. Also, footpads where you place your feet feel softer to the touch compared to the other Revitive devices.
- Customer feedback – the product has gathered a burgeoning collection of five-star reviews on retailers’ websites expressing complete satisfaction from most reviewers.
- Less affordable – Price close to 200 pounds makes it one of the most expensive circulation boosters / foot massagers on the market. This is a Revitive’s premium product indeed.
I have checked also Amazon customers’ reviews. The very few reviewers who were not completely satisfied did not complain about the product, per se. Instead they complained that the company did not respond to questions, complaints and requests for refund or exchange.
Anything else you should know?
This product is intended for use by people (including pregnant women past the first trimester of pregnancy) who wish to increase their circulation and reduce instances of swollen ankles and feet, as well as leg discomfort. It was developed in the UK, and clinical studies conducted there have shown Revitive IX to be both effective and safe for people fitting this description.
Be aware that the Revitive IX is not an ideal product for everyone. You should consult your doctor for using this product. You should also read the warnings that come with the product very carefully before use. Understand that positive results are dependent upon appropriate and responsible use.
Take note that this product is not available for sale to minors (those under 18 years of age). When you purchase the product, you must declare that you are not a minor.
Good circulation in the legs supports good circulation throughout the body. It allows your blood to efficiently carry waste products and carbon dioxide from the lower legs to the heart where the blood is re-oxygenated.
If you are unable to get as much exercise as you need to support a strong circulatory system, smart, regular use of technology such as the Revitive IX can help you maintain good health.
Is Revitive IX better than some other circulation boosters on the market? Is it worth the price? My answer is ‘yes’ to both questions.
