I was sent Actipatch for muscle and joint pain relief. ActiPatch® is a new and clinically proven
drug-free technology in the fight against chronic muscle and joint pain.

The Actipatch  works by helping blood flow in the body regulate by electrical signals that travel along nerves. The Actipatch  modifies these nerve signals, providing pain relief by enhancing blood flow which reduces inflammation and restores the injured tissue to a healthy state.

You wont feel heat with the Actipatch but you will feel the low level energy that is gently pulsed into the cells to heal damaged tissue. It should start working after about 2 -3 hours and should decrease your pain for around 8 – 24 hours if you keep the Actipatch on.

There is a warning on the pack that the Actipatch should not be used by women who are pregnant or think they are pregnant. It’s easy to apply and they tell you to place it directly over the source of pain, They also have a back wrap to keep it in place and a knee wrap.

As most of my readers know I suffer from chronic low back and neck pain as well as Fibromyalgia so I decided to try the back wrap with the Actipatch placed underneath it.  Although I definitely felt some pain relief I was unable to lower my pain medication but a week later my right knee started to play up so I decided I would try the patch with the adhesives ad place it on the top of my knee. After only a couple of hours the pain went away completely, and so far has not come back again.

The Actipatch  has to be ideal for any type of muscle or joint pain. On their website The Fibromyalgia Support Group undertook a chronic pain survey and concluded that ActiPatch®’s innovative technology “is an invaluable new pain therapy that can greatly benefit the majority of Fibromyalgia sufferers, helping them effectively and safely self-manage their pain and improve quality of life²”. From this, 79% of responders reported a reduction in their pain having used ActiPatch®.



  1. Hello.. how do i know if the back one the circular wire is broken.. i have the green light on.. and have been using for a few weeks now.. and at 1st yes it seamed to be working but im in agony most days whilst still using it.. or am i doìng something wrong..


    1. Hi Toni, sorry to hear you are in so much pain. I have contacted Antipatch for you and their response to your question is “For the BEST RESULTS from ActiPatch the most important thing is to the have LOOP (not the bit with the light) over the pain area and to wear it continuously on one pain area – only take it off to shower or bathe. The MORE CONTINUOUSLY you wear it the better it works. Here are two good videos to watch so you can get the best use from ActiPatch: Keeping ActiPatch in place: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1azI665tqmM

      Hope that helps. Barbara


      1. I understand that i have to use the loop bit.. but how would i know if the circuit has been broken.. would the green light still come on.


  2. Hi Toni, sorry for delay getting back to you but I was in hospital having some spinal injections. I’ve been in touch with actipatch again for you and they said “the light will not come on if the battery has died or the unit is defective”. I hope that solves it for you.


  3. After the 720 hrs, do I just purchase another one ? I’ve had mine on for a day and a half, and I’m impressed I qaa able to fall right to sleep last night. Before I was in so much pain in my feet , it would take 4-5 hrs, before I was able to go to sleep. . I have it taped to the majority of the bottom of my foot . More so in the arch and on the joint of the iog toe. And my pain was in my whole foot top, side bottom and heal. .


    1. Fantastic news Cindy – I do ope it lasts for the whole 720 hours. I guess the only way to decide if you should buy another is to see how you are without it and if the pain is awful again then maybe purchase another for 720 hours. Trial and error really. Everyone is different. Good Luck – Barbara
