Re: Sequential compression device/air leg massager

The unit I use doesn't really have settings, per say. there are two numeric counters (a bright blue light in the dark) that flank a power button. There are two functions (F1 & F2) but I don't really know what they do or how they differ. The default is F1, so I leave it there. One of the counters...

Re: Sequential compression device/air leg massager

Oh and one other thing, the only reason I’m awake at 4 o’clock in the morning to answer this at this point is because I had surgery on my left wrist and Tuesday and my current sleep patterns are screwed up which, I’m used to so it’s no big deal.

Re: Sequential compression device/air leg massager

Please Allow me to Introduce Myself...

Hello, I'm a 56 year old married male, and have suffered through RLS for the past 30 years or so. It is a hereditary condition for me; my father and at least one of my aunts that I know of had it, and my two sons by my first wife (29 and 27) are beginning to have episodes. Here are the things I curr...

Re: Sequential compression device/air leg massager

I recently (two weeks ago) began using a medical grade pcd and the results for me are life changing. I’ve slept longer, deeper, and better than I have in almost 30 years!
