Rated 3 out of 5 by Mackie This product needs constant recharging
Very disappointed in the product after a short session it needs recharging. If not used for a day or so it seems to loose all it charge. Too expensive for what it does. I'll go back to my old reliable tens machine

Rated 2 out of 5 by MrTea Great Idea, didn't work for me.
This is a really well thought out product, unfortunately I didn't find that it worked for me. Whilst I was using it I got some pain relief, but once it was stopped the pain came back and it's just not an option to have this on all day.
The app for this is well though out and has lots of settings, there's pre made programs and there's also ones you can make yourself, you can quite literally set it and forget it, the PulseRelief does it's thing and then you're finished. You need to take into account the cost of replacement pads too, I can't see them lasting very long and they are VERY sticky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by aaronb110 Good for home use
This product is great for using at home for pain relief, only downside I would say with it is that you have to stay awake whilst using it if doin before bedtime, whereas before I would take medication and fall asleep while it worked. Other than that it's a great product and would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucy6 Easy to use, portable pain releif
I was lucky enough to get this product for free in return for an honest review.
I have used this product for the last few weeks on my lower back, hip and around the knee.
It's extremely easy to use with one of the heads detaching to be charged from a mains adapter, the other head is home to the on/off button. When charging the light on the unit is orange, when in use it is green. Install the Philips treatment app and the device will sync with your phone, this then opens up all the treatment options.
The unit comes with two sticky backed electrodes which you place on the areas indicated by the app according to where you wish to treat. I have used the electrodes over 20 times now and they are just beginning to lose their adhesive ability (easily replaceable at reasonable cost). The unit fits on to the electrodes and you select the treatment type from the app - they include deep massage, muscle stimulation, radiating massage and many more, each treatment option can go up to an intensity of 60. As a guide I was able to work up to using deep massage at 60 on my lower back (initially high intensity caused a slight sting on the skin but I got used to it and it decreased), however anything over 40 on my quad made it jump around like mad! Depending on the program the time might be preset to 30 mins, this can be increased by hitting refresh which will restart the preset timer without stopping the treatment if you want longer.
My lower back has benefited hugely from this device, I have definitely noticed less tightness and the associated discomfort after a heavy gym session if I am able to use it later the same day. Obviously it can't replace a full sports massage but it's excellent for extending the time between them.
I noticed less impact on my leg/knee pain but there is a high chance that this is ligament/cartilage damage so that's not unsurprising. I used this on lower back, hip and knee the day after completing a Tough Mudder and I'm pretty sure it helped to reduce the muscle soreness and was certainly preferable to using foam roller!
A great piece of kit - portable, simple to use, long lasting battery life and offers many options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zacharias Overall a very good product which does what it says on the tin.
The Pulserelief since having it has quickly become one of my favourite small devices which I use very regularly. What makes this product so good, in my opinion, is that it is controlled via app. The app allows you to select the area of the body for pain relief and filters specific programs for that pain relief and then a continuously variable intensity. Overall a very easy to use product that you can pretty much use without needing instructions on how to use, and that also does perform very well giving the required pain relief and muscle relaxation wanted without the use of pain killers ect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DanTheMan10 Oustandingly easy to use and very effective.
This product has to be one of the easiest products I have used in recent years.... turn on the product open the app and done... The app is another delight to use I used the iOS version, lots of data and advice on varying different injuries. I noticed a very little pain relief to start but stuck with and now use this every time I have trouble with my shoulder 30 mins later and the magic has worked.
