Revive dpl LED Light Therapy System for Pain
Yes, it really works!
I have a lot of arthritis including my hands and wrists and I was not finding much relief from the conventional treatments. I bought this because it had an extended warranty and started using it. It gives a comforting feeling from the warmth at the time of use and the more I used it the more it helped. I normally only use it about 10-15 minutes per area once a day. I found that with regular use I had significantly less pain in my hands and wrist and improved functionality. I would tell anyone that buys it to be patient and keep using it. It does not work immediately but it is working for me! I have not tried using the strap so I cannot comment on that. If it was a little less expensive it would be better. Overall, it deserves 4 stars.

My mother has terrible pain in her lower back and I ordered this thinking it would do her some good by having deep infrared heating. She used it for over a week and I asked her how she liked it. She said, well...I can't feel anything. Maybe you can try it. So I plugged it in and placed on my cheek and it took almost 5 minutes before I felt any heat and I figured that was coming from light bulbs themselves. Not worth the money they are asking for it.
not worth the money
Really wished this would have helped my arthritis but just didn't' Maybe others will have better results.
Good product but product too expensive.
When I used the item it helped ease the joint pain in my hip but my heating pad does the samething for less than $30. The black strap used to hold the hand held product in place was not in package. The fan cannot be blocked which made holding it for any lenght of time uncomfortable. The box did not contain a strap as shown. I am returning it even though they give you 60 days to use. Not a good value.
Had high hopes but...
They show this on t.v. On your Back and they are leaning back and relaxing BUT when I read the instructions and tried it out, it is not possible to lay back on it because it has a fan on it that can't be blocked. So you have to hold it on your back and don't lean back or use the strap which still doesn't allow you to relax because of blocking the fan. From the time I used it, it felt very good. Maybe they will improve it. Sadly, I returned it.
I bought this for my husband who is a young athlete in an old body ;) ... He has a bad shoulder that no amount of PT seems to help ... This light, especially the "green" one, works wonders ... I also use it on my lower back (have had disc surgery and a ton of degeneration) and am still surprised by the incredible pain relief and healing each and every time I use it ... The "red" light we've used to promote healing of cuts and abrasions -- it works! ... I also use the red light to rebuild collagen in my face ... The blue light works wonders on acne prone skin ... Every home needs one of these as a permanent part of their first aide kit ...
I only used this item a few times for a bad knee. It felt pleasant and I thought it helped. I put it away for a few months and when the knee flared again I got it out to use and it malfunctioned and only a few lights turned on , and it did not seem to be working. Very unhappy with this purchase.
Although this looked interesting enough to order, upon receiving it and reading the instructions I noted that it had medical-related cautions so I returned it. I don't want to fool around with my health..
I use this daily
I have been practicing my guitar using my left hand for notes and this has gotten my arm very sore. (I have an artificial radial head in the left elbow) I use this product before I get up because I wake up in a lot of pain. It worked also on my shoulder arthritis. The Dr gave me a shot for the arthritis which really helped so now I use this product on my muscles and I don't think I could be pain free without it! I find the sorest spot on my arm and leave it for 7 minutes and then move it to the next sorest etc until the product shuts off. If I am still in pain I wait until the product cools down and use it again. There are negatives. I have a difficult time placing the product on my back because I can not hold it there for long.; The strap does not help all that much because 1# it is difficult to put on, 2) it pulls the product away from my skin, and 3) the strap is made of a stiff material which hurts me. Also, I have found that to turn the product off manually reduces the ON time the next time I use it #?). The on/off button is difficult to use unless I am looking right at it.
Are you Kidding?
Sorry QVC this is a major miss. This machine is simply a gimmick.
so far, so good
I've been using for a few weeks and seems to be helping with my knee pain and especially right after the treatment. I was having "extreme" knee pain a few weeks ago and on a scale 1-10, my pain was a 10. The pain is now around a 5 and still pain but not as severe. I am still unsure if it is the unit or the medications I've been taking that's been my help. I am so glad QVC allows the 60day use before I decide to keep or return and thank you.
eased the pain
So glad i bought this. It eases my aches and pains better than a heating pad. The results last longer.
