Ab Electrode Placement
In just a few short steps, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of your Compex® device.
Where to Place Electrodes on Your Abs for TENS and Muscle Stimulation
To begin, flex your abs to locate the muscle group. Next, place the Compex® electrodes along the left and right sides of the abdomen. Both the Compex® wireless and wired electrodes should run from top to bottom, not across the middle of the abs.
If using the wired Compex® device, take the black snap of one lead cable and connect it to one electrode. Take the red snap of the same lead cable and attach it to the other electrode right below.
If using the wireless Compex® device, take one end of the wireless pod and attach it to the electrode. Twist the pod to tighten if there is any slack in the wireless cable.
DJO Global, Inc. disclaims all responsibility for electrodes positioned in any other manner.
