- Compex Fit 3.0 – My favorite
- Tesmed Max 830 – The best value for money
- Compex SP 8.0 – The best on the market
- Beurer EM 95 – To be considered for its “virtual coach” application

Compex Fit 3.0
Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5
My opinion :Compex is a brand of electrostimulators recommended to me by a physiotherapist friend, and since I tested their devices, they remain by far my favorites. What I particularly appreciate with this Fit 3.0 version is its efficiency and versatility. Its many programs make it as useful for building muscles as for recovering well, and I have personally used it many times to strengthen my abs, for example, or to relieve my legs after a fairly intense workout. (The massage mode is even very pleasant on the neck after returning from a long day!) It is clearly not the most accessible electrostimulator in terms of prices, but it is on the other hand one of the best. If you are considering investing in a device of this type, this model is the one I recommend without hesitation!
Tesmed Max 830
Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5
My opinion :This Max 830 from Tesmed is for me an electrostimulator with one of the best quality/price ratios. Significantly less expensive than the Compex presented just before, it nevertheless integrates almost the same functionalities, in any case those which are the most important. You can find the independent channels there to build up/firm up/massage your two legs at the same time, for example, but also a wide choice of programs to meet your expectations as closely as possible, whether they are more aesthetic, sporting or health. What I also appreciated with this model is that its user manual in French contains many illustrations to correctly place the electrodes according to the program chosen. And this is a rather interesting detail if you are buying an electrostimulator for the first time!
Compex SP 8.0
Editor’s note: 5 / 5
My opinion :The Compex SP 8.0 is undoubtedly the best on the market: I have never tested better performing electrostimulators than this one! Let’s be clear, it should only interest you if you train almost daily, but if so, it has absolutely everything to please. In fact, he neglects the so-called “fitness” programs (toning, firming, etc.) to make the most of the potential of electrostimulation. Endurance, explosive strength, cross-training, hypertrophy, capilarization… it has enough power to guarantee all this and does not neglect useful post-training uses (regenerating massage, TENS painkiller, cramp prevention). It is obviously displayed at a fairly high price but given its effectiveness,
Beurer EM 95
Editor’s note: 4 / 5
My opinion: To exploit all the possibilities of electrostimulation without getting lost or doing anything, I find this Beurer rather ingenious! What I really liked about this device is that it guides you step by step and you feel confident. Whether in training mode or relaxation mode, you’re never lost in the settings and it’s fun, especially when you start. In addition, the coaching application that comes in addition to the device is really well done with its videos and it allows you to really get the most out of this electrostimulator to firm up and tone the muscles. I must admit that the price could have been a little more affordable, but you have to consider this EM 95 as a real “substitute” for the gym!
Editor’s note: 4 / 5
My opinion: As you can see, electrostimulators tend to be quite expensive! Prorelax, on the other hand, is a good alternative if you don’t have an unlimited budget. If in its description we have the impression that it focuses more on therapeutic effects than sports, this is not necessarily the case in use. It has 8 different programs which are well distributed between muscle building and pain treatment and is therefore rather balanced. It would be lying to say that it is as efficient as the other devices present in this selection but it is much more affordable and it knows how to make itself useful, whether for athletes, for seniors or for all people in between.!
