CompexCompex deals in products designed for professional cyclists and athletes as well as items which are suitable for use by those who are just looking to keep fit or speed up their progress during a training session. In short its various gadgets can be used to stimulate your muscles using electric pulses and this year’s devices are tailored to give you a personalised experience with web functionality.

Compex Wireless

The Compex Wireless is the first of its kind, allowing you to apply electro-stimulation to important muscle groups without the need for annoying wires trailing all over the place. Coupled with unique electrode placement technology that allows you to position each one for maximum efficiency, the Compex Wireless is a comprehensive tool for anyone who is concerned about their physical fitness.

With link-ups to a web-based system for managing its use and adding new programmes from a selection of over 50 options you will be able to expand and adapt its usage as you continue to harness its power over time. It is also stylishly designed and easy to put on, with a separate docking station allowing you to power the four electrodes for extended periods, improving the effectiveness of each workout.

Compex Mi-Sport

The Compex Mi-Sport is another of its professionally-targeted gadgets which helps you plan training sessions around the development of your muscles. Because it has this bespoke degree of adaptability you will never feel like you are trying to squeeze into a one size fits all box. Instead it features full, intelligent stats gathering throughout each session, eight programmes preinstalled and an easily viewable backlit monochrome screen which goes hand in hand with the durable construction of the device itself. Like the more expensive Compex Wireless the Mi-Sport can be synchronised with an online training planner, although the fully customisable onboard electrostimulation options allow for an added degree of real time training adjustment.

Compex Energy

If you want the same quality of muscle stimulation but want to spend a little less money then the Compex Energy might be right for you. Three categories of programming which cover those who want to train for sporting purposes, health improvement or simply added bodily aesthetic appeal are included as standard. You can easily apply the electrodes to your front or back using just one hand thanks to the special Easy Snap technology, so you will not need help from anyone else when preparing to train. Although the Energy model does not come with any dedicated stat tracking or online functionality, it still gives you all of the basic features that you would hope to see from an electrostimulation kit.

Compex is one of the best in the business when it comes to this kind of product. While you can get consumer gear which does roughly the same thing, these more discrete, feature-rich gadgets are much better for serious athletes and those who want to maximise their muscular development across a range of different areas. Cyclists might be particularly interested in the benefits of improved fitness when getting out and about on the open road or muddy trails.
