Could help in improving blood circulation
Poor circulation is a common problem in the elderly and people suffering from certain medical conditions, including Diabetes and High Blood Pressure – these are, unfortunately, often unable to engage in conventional exercise. The EMS Technology behind CircuPlus simulates the act of normal exercise, causing the muscles in the lower legs and feet to repeatedly contract and relax – this means you will benefit from the results of normal exercise while seated and enjoying a relaxing leg massage. As a consequence, the CircuPlus may aid to boost blood circulation and could reduce blood pooling, which causes stiffness and swelling from prolonged inactivity. The thermal heating function on the foot pads of the CircuPlus offers further support and relief, so you will have an altogether sense of relaxation and comfort.
May help to relieve pain & swelling
Swelling is often caused by poor circulation and can in turn result in pain in the swollen area. With CircuPlus, you can sit back, enjoy the soothing warmth (it boosts up to 45°C Thermal Heating), and let the relaxing massage soothe your pain and potentially increase your mobility and range of motion through the effects of electrical muscle stimulation.
Could reduce cramps & discomfort
If you are prone to leg cramps and discomfort, better blood circulation can help improve the problem. Therefore, if you are otherwise healthy, but work for long periods at a desk or have a sedentary lifestyle, then CircuPlus could help boost your lower leg circulation.
Advanced EMS Technology
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) Technology induces reflex muscle contractions in the lower legs and feet to promote movement of the blood and loosen tense muscles. This means that, while the CircuPlus should not be seen as a substitute for normal active exercise, it does provide a means of exercising the lower legs passively while seated or otherwise relaxing. Your muscles will be active while you are getting a well-deserved massage.
25 varied muscle stimulation waveforms
By incorporating a wide variety of diverse waveforms to stimulate the target area every session, conditioning (or habituation, where muscles get use to the same contractions and the effects of stimulation decreases over time) is avoided. This way, consistent results are achieved in muscle stimulation. You can choose to activate the Auto mode which takes you through all 25 waveforms or the Manual mode to select and customize your massage with your preferred waveforms.
Body electrode pads
Additional electrode pads may help you stimulate and improve aches and sores in other parts of your body at the same time, such as the shoulders, arms and back, so you can target and potentially soothe all your problem areas with just 30 minutes a day.
“CircuPlus uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation to simulate the act of normal exercise, generate a pleasant warmth and efficiently massage the user, resulting in a general feeling of relaxation and comfort. The massage effect of CircuPlus may help alleviate pains, tensions and could sooth aches”.
As much as we hate to admit it, healthy habits are hard to come by. We sit and lie down for longer hours than we are active, and foods good for us usually sends us turning the other way.
With CircuPlus, you could be able to easily incorporate a major health benefit to your lifestyle. Unknown to most people, the foundation of good health is built upon healthy circulation. Your blood cells are responsible for transporting oxygen and nutrients throughout your body to help carry out all the mundane body functions you often take for granted. Without active blood cells to keep your body at its optimum, you will often find yourself feeling lethargic, prone to falling ill and taking longer to heal wounds or fight off viruses.
If all these apply to you or someone dear to you, it is time to pay closer attention to your circulation to ensure you stay active to keep your body healthy.
With CircuPlus, however, a great step towards achieving healthy circulation could be made just by sitting for 20-30 minutes a day - yes, it is unbelievably easy!
Circulation is the movement of blood in the body, through the pumping action of the heart to supply oxygenated blood throughout the organism.
Returning blood to and from the extremities of the body, such as legs, feet and hands require more work. Hence, the surrounding muscles of the veins and arteries will be required to help move the blood along. For example, when we walk, muscles in our feet and legs help to pump blood upwards, in the same way as you would squeeze liquid along a tube.
Circulation generally deteriorates as we age. However, due to the prevalently sedentary lifestyle of most people, circulation problems can affect anyone who is not as active as they should be. Symptoms of poor circulation include cold hands and feet, muscle cramps and tired, ‘heavy’ or aching legs. A healthy lifestyle based on healthy habits, adequate exercise and a balanced diet is required to ensure healthy circulation.
If you are unable to always maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, the CircuPlus could be a great way to improve circulation, while enjoying a relaxing, warm massage that will sooth and balance your mind and body.
Easy and convenient, all you need to do is to place your feet on the CircuPlus, sit back and enjoy the overall feeling of comfort and relaxation.
CircuPlus is designed as an effective, relaxing massager that could help boost circulation in the legs and feet using Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS). EMS is an advanced technology used to mimic the neuromuscular responses in your body to induce involuntary muscle contractions. Using this technology, the CircuPlus may be able to induce a ‘pumping’ action in your lower legs by ‘tricking’ the muscles in your lower legs to ‘squeeze’ the blood vessels surrounding the muscles, and therefore could boost blood circulation. EMS technology simulates the act of normal exercise, causing the muscles in the lower legs and feet to repeatedly contract and relax - meaning you will benefit from the results of normal exercise while seated and enjoying a relaxing massage.
Additionally, our CircuPlus is designed with 3 thermal heating modes on the foot pads, to achieve better results in a shorter time. Choose from 37°C, 40.5°C and 45°C heating modes anytime during your EMS foot massage to enjoy the soothing warmth of our thermal heating foot pads.
Blood circulation is the movement of your blood cells through the network of blood vessels in your body. All oxygenated blood gets pumped out of the heart through the arteries, while deoxygenated blood flows back to the heart to be oxygenated again through veins.
When one area of your body is experiencing poor blood circulation, it means somewhere, your blood flow is blocked. Your body will be unable to receive the adequate amount of oxygen and nutrients it requires and prolonged poor circulation can lead to dire health problems, including Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Vertigo, Blood Clots and Cardiovascular Disease.
In fact, one of the symptoms of Diabetes is the swelling of feet and ankles as a result of poor circulation. Nerve damage, circulation problems and infections can cause serious foot problems for people with Diabetes. Sometimes nerve damage can deform your feet, causing pressure points to turn into blisters, sores or ulcers. Poor circulation can cause these injuries to heal slowly, sometimes resulting in amputation of a toe, foot, or leg.
Symptoms of having poor circulation, include having cold feet and hands, muscle aches, strains and cramps, and experiencing numbness due to restricted blood flow. These problems can be improved through improving circulation in the lower leg.
People suffering from Peripheral Artery Disease also inherently suffer from reduced blood flow to the limbs, usually affecting the legs. Peripheral artery disease is generally caused by Atherosclerosis, which is a build-up of fatty deposits (plaque) in the artery walls.
Poor circulation left unaddressed can develop into some serious disorders leading to varicose veins, kidney damage and stroke.
Your relationship with us does not end with your purchase of the CircuPlus. Albeit designed to be simple to operate, the CircuPlus is a sophisticated piece of machinery you would want ongoing support and advice for, to help you make the most of it. That is why we make sure our Froothie support team is only ever a phone call or email away.
