Different therapy exists to help manage and cope with chronic knee pain. They all posess varying degrees of effectiveness and side effects from some treatments could also be a source for concern.

The Actipatch Knee Pain Advanced Long-Lasting Therapy seeks to control chronic knee pain using alternative, non-invasive therapy method.

But does it work?

What Is Actipatch Knee Pain Relief Therapy?

The Actipatch Knee Pain Relief Therapy is simply a product that makes use of electromagnetic pulse therapy (referred to in shortened terms as PEMF).

Electromagnetic pulse therapy (PEMF) is a treatment method that relies on the use of magnets to generate moving energy (pulsating energy), which is then directed towards the area of the body with pain or tissue damage.

PEMF in principle has long been demonstrated to change the way the body responds to pain and injury.

What Is In The Package?

SUPPLIED CONTENTS

Unboxing the Actipatch Knee Pain Relief Therapy pack will reveal:
  • One (small) electromagnetic pulse generating device with round loops
  • Knee wrap for the PEMF device.
  • An instruction leaflet.
The knee wrap material is made of cotton along with elastic bands at the top and bottom to enable firm wrap around the knee

How Does The Actipatch Knee Pain Relief therapy Work?

The small electromagntic pulse generating device with the loop is what is responsible for producing pain relief. The rounded head of the device posess a battery and an On/Off switch to either switch on or switch of the device.

ON & OFF SWITCH

The On/Off switch is located discreetly at the back of the device and it is covered with a white clip. To put the device on, remove the white clip-like covering over the switch, hold down the "on/off" switch for 2 seconds with the thumb and then release. A green light will glow at the front of the device to signify the device is now running.



At this point, the device is generating the electromagnetic pulse around the round loop. The area of pain on the body must be positioned in between the loop as the electromagnetic pulse generated is propagated to this open space. Now this would not be easy to achieve since the device has to be placed on the knee, which happens to be the affected area of pain and chronic discomfort in this instance. This is where the supplied knee wrap comes in handy.



Simply slide in the electromagnetic pulse generating device into the supplied knee wrap (Knee wrap has pouch-like opening at the top) and attach the knee wrap to the knee with its upper and lower ends positioned just above and below the knee. Hold the knee wrap in place with the elastic straps such that it gives a snug fit.


With the device in place, leave it on for at least 8 hours a day. In episodes of severe pain, Actipatch knee pain relief can be worn for up to 24 hours a day.

It should be noted that the tiny battery within the electromagnetic pulse generating device is guarrantteed to power the device and provide 720 hours duration of pain relief therapy. Depending on the extent of use, this can last between 1 month (For people who wear device for 24 hours a day,7 days a week) to 3 months (For people who wear device for 8 hours per day, every day of the week). Less consistent use would mean longer duration of use before exhausting the 720 hours duration of pain relief therapy.
