    Love the machine but remote doesn’t work

    Out of the box the remote didn’t work. I’ve managed to put the machine within reach and have been using it after runs and workouts. It has been great for recovery. I feel far less soreness that I used to feel the day after a hard workout. I definitely recommend it even without a working remote.

I will report your remote issue, please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance at 1-800-487-3808. Thanks for being a Vive Health Customer. -Angie- Vive Health

    Great customer service

    I got my leg compressions but unfortunately they did not fit at the thigh so I contacted customer service and chatted with Carolina online. She was so very helpful and found out they do have large sleeves so I was able to buy them. I am waiting on them now so I can use my machine. She went out of her way to hunt some down and helped me so much!

    Excellent relief

    I'm fairly sure I've had one to many sudden stoppages in my lifetime which are now really talking to me as I close in on my 69th birthday. I've tried the ankle compression but they stop short of giving me the muscle aches and pain I've dealt with for years. I purchased this leg compression system more out of frustration than anything else. Glad I did as I got lucky. This leg system is working and has helped minimize those horrible leg and thigh cramping problems. This is not an overnight remedy but I'll gladly take this blessing one day at a time compared to what I've endured. Great product and while it's working on my legs it is an added pleasure while relaxing my entire body.
