Compex – Your intelligent training partner!

At The Physio Clinic, we are always looking for new ways to increase your potential, decrease injury and recovery after sports.

Compex is a leading brand in portable muscle simulator. It is unique because it has muscle intelligence (MI) which automatically personalises the stimulation settings depending on the physiology of each user. It’s very user friendly and backed by clinical trials proving its effectiveness.

Compex works by stimulating your muscles and it does this by Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS).

In voluntary muscle activity (you making your muscle work), the brain sends a command to the nerve fibres in the form of an electrical signal. This signal is the transmitted to the muscular fibres which enables the muscles to contract.

Basically, the principle of electrostimulation accurately reproduces the process observed during a voluntary muscle contraction. A voluntary muscle contraction (controlled by the brain) and an electrically stimulated muscle contraction (EMS) are completely identical therefore, the muscle cannot distinguish whether the command comes from the brain or from the stimulator.

Compex has different parameters (number of impulses per second, contraction time, rest time, total programme time) so we can subject the muscles to different types of work. To put it simply different Training, Recovery and Massage settings, all designed to help you perform at your best.

Due to its innovation, design and scientifically backed research there are numerous benefits to be had by the user.

  • Portable
  • Comfortable
  • Personalised settings using MI (muscle intelligence)
  • Increased performance
  • Increased muscle strength and endurance
  • Decreased work rate of the user
  • Decreased injury rate
  • Good for post-operative rehabilitation

There are many scientifically backed studies that show:

  • Increase muscle strength by up to 27%
  • Increase muscle volume by up to 8%
  • Decrease Lactic Acid by up to 25%

You can view a Compex in action via our Youtube channel.  Its a great way to visualise how the device works.  We have over 25 videos to view to help you get a feel for the variety of uses the device has.
