As one who suffers chronic low back pain, I was very excited when I learned I was chosen to receive the Philips Pulse Therapy Relief in exchange for my honest review. Overall, I am pleased with the results achieved from using the Philips Pulse Therapy Relief equipment. It was easy to set up and I really enjoyed being able to use it without having to strategically position myself or request assistance from anybody. No wires! You just stick the pads on in the general area of discomfort, hook the unit to the pads and then sync the device to your smartphone using Bluetooth. Once you have opened the app and synced to your device, you select the area of discomfort. If you aren’t certain where to place the pads, you can look here first to see the recommended placements for the various areas. Then after selecting the location on your body, the app will present the best options of the available treatments. I have tried a few different ones, but always go back to the mixed frequency option. Once you select the treatment option, you are able to change the intensity of the pulses. I typically don’t feel anything under 6, so I’m not sure how effective those lower level numbers are and if they are even necessary on the device. The scale goes up to 60, but the most I’ve been able to tolerate has been around 30 at this point, and oftentimes that will sometimes give the occasional zinger! You can track the treatments and pain scales in the treatment diary to refer back later or track progress in helping reduce your overall condition. The Philips Pulse Therapy Relief device effectively helps to alleviate the tension in my lower back, reduces pain, and often times helps relax me enough that I fall asleep! My only recommendation is I wish the unit came with 4 electrode pads instead of 2. But for targeted pain relief, the two pads have been sufficient thus far. I do recommend this unit over other options because it is easy to use, effective, and hands-free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KerryO It's magic!
have been pleasantly surprised how well the Pulse Therapy Relief from Philips works! I have used the product on my calves and shoulders and have found it to be very effective. I`m simply amazed and a bit perplexed on how it works,after receiving this free in exchange for a review. I really like how it has different settings and the intelligence to shut off after using it for a specified time. It`s easy to use and seems to really isolate those muscles that need attention. I would suggest, however, that Philios provides additional adhesives in the package.

I received a free Pulse Therapy Relief-Philips to review and I absolutely love it! It was extremely easy to set-up on my smartphone. I particularly like that there are 20 different treatment programs on the app, in addition to 60 different intensity levels. I don't like to take medication for my aches and pains, so this is a perfect remedy for me. I struggle with lower back issues that flare up from time to time and I always had to go to the Chiropractor or Physical Therapist to receive pulse therapy. Now I am able to provide myself with this same technology and therapy in the comfort of my own home! I would highly recommend this to anyone who struggles with muscle and/or joint pain anywhere on their body.

I have used the Pulse Therapy Relief by Phillips, quite a few times since receiving it as a free sample, in exchange for my review. I sometimes experience some muscle discomfort in my thighs and tried the item, let me say I love it! It is relaxing to the muscles and eliminates the discomfort after a short time of use. I`ve also used it on my shoulder blades after a stressful day at work. It provided relief to my sore and aching muscles. I will continue to use this product often!

I used the muscle and joint pain relief first on an area of my leg which had been giving me problems. I placed the wireless magnetic electrodes on the area and the impulses sent through the skin were amazing. The pulses felt like the way the nervous system works with helping the muscles contract. I have a smartphone to download the program and kept track of all the times I used it and the intensity at which I was progressing. It really is an awesome add on to your feeling better after exercise or if you have muscles that need a little treatment. I did get to use as a free sample and very happy I did.

I was not expecting much out of the pulse therapy relief machine that I received as a free product in exchange for my review but I was pleasantly surprised! First of all, it was super easy to set up and the direction book and app are very user friendly. I have a lot of neck and back pain so those were the areas that I targeted. I could not believe the intensity that the pulses were able to put out. I love that there are so many different programs for you to use including massage and intense therapy as well as just a manual setting. This machine is pricey but for anyone who wants to treat problem pain areas, I think this is worth the money. I will be curious to see how often I will have to replace the pads but again, I will use this a lot to help with my problem areas as it stays in place whether I am sitting down or moving around. The app also has a spot to keep a diary so you can track what programs you have used and how they are helping. Thank you Phillips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeckyFOH Works like the doctors office
I have really enjoyed using this product and have found it helpful. I find it most helpful when I use one of the milder pulsing sensations and use it for a longer period. It feels just like the ones used at the chiropractor office, and does provide some pain relief after work-outs. It works best with a fresh patch on the machine.
It would be helpful if I could also buy the replacement patches as after a couple of uses, it doesnt stick very well. I would prefer to just have a new patch for each new use because the product seems most effective with the new patch.
The biggest issue I have had is that when I need to adjust the patch just slightly, I forget to turn it off and then it shocks my finger if I touch it. Turn it off before moving the patch position!
I received this product for free to test out for my honest review.

Hello-I received this product as a free sample.I was excited to get something that I could possibly use to relieve some of the pain I experience in my lower back. Overall I would say it pulsates really well. I will just say one thing that I was not crazy about was how intimating it is to get started up on this thing since it is linked to your smart phone app. 1st of all my phone has small storage so I had to delete stuff to make room for the app to fit on my phone and 2nd, I don`t understand why you can`t just use it with out using an app on your phone. I like technology like the next person, but I am a very busy person and it took me quite a few days to take the time to read everything on it to get it going. I would rather have a product I can just rip open and use that doesn`t require a lot of reading and direction. Not to mention I am a bit intimated by technology when I 1st use it. after I figure it out, I am good, but that time it takes me to figure something out can be frustrating. I just don`t see the necessity to have an app with this when it could just have its own operating compartment like a remote or something. Over all product is really nice and helped relieve my pain while using it. Thank you.
