Compex, a global leader in muscle-stimulator technology, offers two unique massage vibration devices to relieve muscle pain or help prep muscle groups before a workout.
The Compex Ion, a deep-tissue massage roller, and the Molecule, a small vibrating massage ball, target sore and achy muscles and are easy to travel with and transport from home to the course or gym.
Compex developed the Ion and the Molecule for consumers who need help loosening their myofascia tissue and breaking down the pain spots (or trigger points) that can increase the risk of injury. A loosened myofascia – the connective tissue system that separates and contains every muscle of the body – leads to relaxed muscles, which provides pain relief.
The Ion roller ($199.99) is best used for loosening tight and sore tissue over a full muscle. For loosening muscle-pain spots in smaller, targeted areas, the Molecule ($99.99) ball is the suitable choice.
The Compex Ion – a heavy-duty roller made of highly durable industrial-grade material with a rigid/textured finish for solid grip – has four vibration speeds to tailor intensity. The massage roller provides relief from sore or stiff muscles by working deep layers of tissue. It helps increase blood flow, reduce next-day soreness, release knots and tension, prevent injury, improve range of motion and relax and loosen muscles.
The Molecule also has four therapeutic vibration speeds and pinpoints hard-to-reach muscle areas that are sore or aching. It too is durable with a rigid/textured finish for solid grip.
Both massagers are TSA approved for travel and charge with a USB cable.
