    If you have no spasms at all, it won't work.

    Do you have spasms? Myself I'm flaccidly paralyzed so it won't work either.

    There were testing something in Vienna several years back for completes but I don't know what happened with it. One member - Suzanne Poon's son - had purchased it.

    Are you sure lyn?

    Tiny toe twitches sometimes but not spasms
    I probably have a transected cord but my local GP recommended one. I'll check with my physio tomorrow about it not working for flaccidity.

    I love Compex!
    I have the Compex Sport Elite...bad choice. Far too mich money for the use. Compex is a great machine but it is not a TENS Unit. It will littery build muscle but only if you have function. I have function in right leg and it works but none in my left and I see no difference.
    Never Give Up!

    Thats why I like the recovery, warmup, or massage functions. Those do not contract the muscle if that is not what someone is after. The Compex Sport Elite will be my next one. Its overkill but thats just how I do everything else anyway.
