If you don’t already have a pair of Large Thigh Pads, these can be purchased in the app and will enable the Knee Program. Tap on the 'i' next to the desired programs and follow the on screen payment instructions.
Use the Knee Programs to strengthen the muscles at the front of your thigh (quadriceps). Strengthening
your quadriceps muscles may help to support and stabilise the knee, reduce stress on the knee and relieve knee pain. Use Thigh Pads on the thigh of your affected leg (knee) once a day for 20 minutes, 5 days per week.
Do not use Revitive more than 6 sessions of 30 minutes (or the equivalent) per day. This may result in muscle fatigue. Use at an intensity that provides you with strong but comfortable muscle contractions.
The Thigh Pads cannot be used at the same time as the foot-pads.
Using the Thigh Pads will automatically turn the foot-pads off.
Do NOT use the Thigh Pads on your head, face, neck or chest.
Electrode Thigh Pads are for single person use only. Do not share Thigh Pads with others.
Adjusting the intensity level in the Knee Programs
At the start of each Knee Program there will be 30 seconds of stimulation to help you set the right intensity level. This is followed by a rest period of 30 seconds, when you will feel no stimulation. For the remainder of the therapy session you will feel the stimulation.
It is not possible to adjust the intensity during the rest periods. The app and device display will pulse, indicating a “pause”.
You can adjust the intensity when you can feel the stimulation being applied to your thigh and the app and device display are not pulsing.
a Gently press one Thigh Pad across your thigh (1), a few centimetres away from your groin area, with the
adhesive side against the skin.
Gently press second Thigh Pad across your thigh (2), a few centimetres from the top of your kneecap, with the adhesive side against the skin.
The Thigh Pads do not need to be lined up exactly with each other. They need to be in a position that is comfort able and that allows you to see your thigh muscles contract & relax.
b The Knee Pad programs can be automatically selected as part of your Suggested Therapy Plan or manually, by tapping the Program name at the top of the Controller screen when no stimulation is running.
Auto-pause will occur if a pad is disconnected from the body or a cable is disconnected. Reconnecting and tapping play will re-start the stimulation.
Removing the pads
a Check Revitive is switched off after the session, then gently peel the electrode pads from the skin. Do not pull the electrode pads off the skin using the electrode cords as this may damage the cords.
b Replace the electrode pads onto their plastic liner after use.
c Unplug the electrode cord from Revitive.
