Revive dpl LED Light Therapy System for Pain
When It Works, It Works
I purchased this for my mother. Before she used it, I tried it out on some muscle pain I have. Very similar to the infrared light therapy I got from a physical therapist. It was a bit awkward to hold in place without blocking the vents, however it worked well to relieve the pain. The device shut off, so I thought I had reached the auto shutoff time without realizing how long I had been using it, The next day when I tried to demonstrate it for my mother I could not get it to restart. Just nothing. The power cord light indicated power, but the on/off button did nothing at all. It is going back. I rated it 2 stars because when it works it does relieve pain, even though it can be awkward to use. The quality was very disappointing.
Doesn't do much
I waited until I had used this for a few months to write a review. The first unit I received kept shutting off, and the company sent out a new one right away, so customer service was great.
It's difficult to sit and hold the unit and the strap is scratchy and akward, plus you have to make sure the vents are not covered at all or the device will shut off.
I have fibromyalgia, TMJ and other issues. I wanted something I could use on my neck and jaws, and for tension headaches. It really doesn't do anything to help the pain or relax the muscles.
My husband sprained his wrist last weekend, so I had him try it. He said, "I'm not sure what this is supposed to do, but it didn't do anything." I told him it was supposed to help the pain, and again for him, it did nothing.
I am sorry that it didn't work well, I had high hopes, as I cannot tolerate most medications for pain, but I have better luck with my heating pad and TENS unit. I wish I could still return it.
Bought this for my husband who has neck, knee and hip problems. Tried it for three days with no effect at all. Returned it Don't waste your time and money on this. I can't rate this product under 1 star or it would be a minis five star product.
So Far: Good Results
I was anxious to receive this product since I am currently dealing with shoulder/upper arm pain due to overuse (moving heavy boxes of books). I read and have followed the directions which recommed twice daily use for 14 minutes. This is NOT a heating pad so don't expect to feel great heat. The heat is soothing and comfortable. After daily use of the past two weeks since it arrived I am seeing real progress in the healing of the muscle strain/pain which had become chronic. Do not find I need to take any ibuprofen and most days are almost totally without pain.(a big step forward for me) I really am satisfied with the results and each day results improve. I think consistent use is the key to good results here.
Revive LED Light Therapy System
I have had some relief from it. I could tell the difference after the first two or three treatments for a muscle or tendan tear in leg. I think this therapy takes a while to realize the benefits. Don't expect miracles after just one treatment. I am also getting physical therapy and use it between sessions. This will not replace the need for surgery however.
You certainly don't feel any warmth from it. I guess It is ok if you want to strap it to your knee, flat part of your arm or maybe on your waist, but I was trying to strap it to my shoulder and unless you hold it there with your other arm (this was very awkward), there is no way it will stay in place. If you lean up against something to hold it on the back of your shoulder, then you block the air vents from the cooling fan. Also, the area that you can treat at one time is so small, that it is really a waste of time. This one is going back. Don't waste your money and return postage.
Not Enough TV Information
I read on the directions enclosed with the therapy system that it shouldn't be used by those who are taking medications that cause sensitivity to sun. I do. Also, it can't be used near the thyroid gland. I had to send it back.
Wish it would stay on longer than 5 minutes!!!!
I was so excited to receive this, but became easily disappointed when the fan shut off only several minutes after turning on. I did exchange for a replacement but that unit only stayed on for about 10 minutes. However during the time it stayed on, it did work,,,,My body felt better especially the arthritic areas. I did return it for the other led for pain system that the q is selling and it is wonderful.
I had to return it due to financial 'shortage'!! I never tried it. I wish I could have. So I can't really give it a fair review. It was just too expensive for me at this time.
So many mixed reviews on this product but I will share my experience. I bought this for my mother who suffers with arthritis. She has been using it on her wrist, lower back and one hip. Before this product she was on medicated prescription pain cream 3-4 times a day. She now uses this product at night for 15 minutes on each of the above mentioned areas and she no longer needs the cream, her inflammation is greatly reduced and her pain and soreness is also reduced. The machine has been in good working order and she has had wonderful results. I love my mom very much and try to find products to help her so she can have the best quality of life. It was a non brainer to try this even if I did have to send it back because I was not sure if it would. Thank goodness I tried this as she is thrilled with the results. Thank you QVC for this product.
Don't waste your money
This is overpriced and the benefits were not there for me. Used on neck and upper back....not much difference...used for two weeks.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT!
This product does not stay on for 15 minutes as stated in presentation and is defective does not work as stated in advertisement. Greatly disappointed, because as a rule QVC have wonderful products and I do most of my shopping here, however, this is not the one and will be returned!
