Several years ago I had a varicose vein removed and it left a pool of blood in my leg that was also painful. It's been about four years since that happened, and it was there and it was painful that whole time — it never dissipated. Within using the HeartPartner for only a few days, it made a difference and now it's almost gone and, more importantly, the pain is totally gone.

Prior to using the Sonostics HeartPartner I had nightly leg cramps. The cramps were extreme and intensely painful. They would start at my ankle and run up my shin bone. The cramps were so bad that the muscle would protrude and become ridged. It would take a long time to walk and / or massage the cramps away. After using the HeartPartner for about a week the cramps begin to lesson and soon stopped. I have not had a cramp in months. I believe that using the machine is the reason that my cramps have stopped. I am very happy not to be awakened in the middle of the night with the excruciating pain of leg cramps.

I recently sustained an injury to my Achilles tendon and interior ankle ligament while playing basketball. This injury immobilized me for two weeks. Once I began moving about on crutches, lowering my leg would result in immediate pain and fluid pooling from knee to toes. I began using HeartPartner twice daily in an attempt to stimulate the calf muscle. The outcome was reduced pain when lowering my leg in a “dangled” position and fluid would only build up after several hours of being in a vertical position. The result was reduced swelling / fluid pooling. This allowed me to begin rehabilitation sooner and for longer periods. I’ve continued using the device since then. Typical recovery time for an injury such as mine is 6-8 months. It has now been 1.5 months and I have regained 95% mobility and 60% strength in my leg / foot. The HeartPartner has definitely accelerated my recovery. Thanks!

After a water retention problem and relief, I was suffering from painful lower leg cramps which interfered with my sleep. After just two days of using the Sonostics’ HeartPartner, my leg cramps vanished. I now use the device regularly.

The thing I really like about HeartPartner is you don’t have to take your shoes off, you don’t have to change your clothes, or go to the gym, or put something on. You simply sit down, put the front of your feet on the foot pad for 90 minutes while you watch television or read a book. It is that easy.

Twelve years ago, I had double knee replacement surgery. Since then, I’ve had severe swelling in my left ankle. After using HeartPartner for three weeks, my ankle swelling has reduced by over an inch. Typically, after church, I would need to go home and change my shoes because my feet hurt so badly. Now, I’m able to wear my shoes all afternoon without any pain. I wish I had the HeartPartner twelve years ago!

Since I started using Sonostics' HeartPartner, I have more energy and verve than I've had in years. I feel 10 years younger. I hate being away from my second heart.
