Compex Electro-Stimulators available to rent or buy

Whether you’re recovering from surgery, rehabilitating an injury, seeking to enhance sporting performance or alleviating pain, a Compex unit can be a valuable addition to your arsenal. This innovative technology can help individuals optimise their recovery, improve athletic capabilities, and relieve chronic pain.

A Compex unit uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), a technique that utilizes electrical impulses to stimulate muscle contractions. Compex offers a range of EMS machines designed to target specific muscle groups effectively. These devices come with electrodes that attach to the skin over the muscles, providing precise electrical stimulation. By replicating the natural contractions experienced during exercise, Compex EMS units can activate a higher percentage of muscle fibres, leading to improved muscle strength, endurance, performance and recovery.

Compex units can help with a wide range of issues:

Post-Surgery Rehabilitation

A compex unit can be a really helpful tool in enhancing outcomes post-surgery. After surgical procedures such as knee replacement, anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and rotator cuff repair, people often experience muscle weakness, atrophy (decrease in muscle size), and limited range of motion.

Compex can aid in restoring muscle function, preventing further muscle loss, increasing muscle size and strength, and accelerating the healing process. By stimulating blood flow, activating muscles, and promoting gentle movement, Compex aids in getting the muscle firing again, helping to increase muscle activation, strength and size, without overloading the affected area. This can be invaluable, especially if you are restricted by a brace, non or partial weight-bearing with crutches, or struggling to get the muscles firing.

Further into your rehab journey, it can be used dynamically to further increase functional and sports-specific strength.

Injury Rehabilitation

Compex can aid and enhance traditional physiotherapy by targeting specific muscle groups, promoting muscle activation, and improving the range of motion.

By stimulating weakened muscles and facilitating neural re-education, Compex aids in restoring strength, function, and overall mobility.

When used in conjunction with an injury rehabilitation program, Compex can help to accelerate the recovery process.

The electrical impulses delivered by the device activate muscle fibres that may be under-utilised due to the injury, improving muscle recruitment and strength.

By promoting blood circulation to the injured area, Compex supports the delivery of nutrients and oxygen, facilitating tissue repair and reducing recovery time.

Sporting Performance

For athletes and fitness enthusiasts looking to enhance their performance, Compex can provide a competitive edge. By engaging a higher percentage of muscle fibres, improving muscle recruitment, and increasing muscle strength, Compex can help to optimise training and lead to improved athletic performance.

Using Compex sessions before, during, or after workouts can help athletes maximize their training potential. Pre-workout EMS can serve as a warm-up, activating specific muscle groups and preparing them for the upcoming exercise. Compex EMS can intensify muscle engagement during workouts, leading to greater strength gains and muscle development. Post-workout EMS can facilitate recovery by promoting blood flow, reducing muscle soreness process.

Compex devices offer a range of pre-programmed training routines designed to target specific muscle groups. These programs can be customised based on an individual's training level and preferences. Advanced users can create personalised training regimens using the manual settings on the device, allowing for tailored and precise muscle stimulation.

Compex EMS should not replace traditional training methods but should be used as a tool to help to enhance performance.


After an intense training session, your muscles can be fatigued and strained. The recovery process can take time, which can impact your ability to train effectively. Compex can help speed up the recovery process by promoting muscle recovery, reducing lactic acid buildup, and decreasing muscle soreness and tension.

By increasing blood flow, Compex can help deliver oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, which can help repair damaged muscle tissue and improve overall muscle recovery time.

Pain Relief

Compex EMS offers non-invasive pain relief. By stimulating the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, Compex can alleviate discomfort and reduce reliance on pain medications. Using Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), the electrical impulses delivered by the device help to block pain signals, providing temporary relief. The stimulation also promotes blood flow, which can aid in reducing inflammation and promoting healing.

Individuals can target specific areas of pain by placing the electrodes directly over the affected muscles or joints. The intensity of the electrical stimulation can be adjusted based on personal comfort and pain tolerance.
