any experiences out there ? these seem to be convinced this works for tennis players at all levels, even better than the pump hammer. can this help with lower back problem ? Can this be used during the tennis match to help relieve the sore area ? if so why doesn't ATP tour trainers use it during the match ?

This product is so much inferior to the CompexUSA. The compexUSA is probably the best product on the market for what the OP described above. I don't know if the Theracup has FDA approval but the ComexUSA is FDA approved. The CompexUSA can do so much more that Theracup can't.


I've been using CompexUSA for about four years now

TENS and Cupping are not the same. One seems to combine both, it seems.

I have a TENS unit which works great for much less than the one listed above (not the cupping dealio).

I'm sure it's also fine, but electro-stimulation has been around a long time and is
no longer expensive to obtain. In fact, it's extremely cheap.

The original CompexUSA version 1.0 didn't include TENS, only EMS. The compexUSA version 2.0 also includes TENS with additional new features. It has all the warmup, training, recovery, etc... I am not seeing that with Theracup.

Btw, both Roger Federer and Kei Nishikori used CompexUSA when they were juniors and early in their careers. There are several of those videos on Youtube. I think I posted one of those videos.
