Compex Performance Pad Placement

By Compex

Stimulation Position:
Position yourself comfortably in the position as shown in the pictures. The muscle is worked in an isometric fashion and in a stretched position. To work comfortably and safely, keep your limbs in a fixed position (fix your hands or feet to one spot). In this way you provide maximum resistance to the movement and you will stop the muscle from tightening during the contraction.

Placement of the Electrodes:
A stimulation lead wire consists of 2 electrodes:

  • A positive electrode: red connection
  • A negative electrode: black connection

The positive electrode must be placed over the motor point of the muscle (see images). Always respect the size of the electrode as shown in the images: large rectangles and small squares. Always follow the placement directions in the images.
