Tricep Electrode Placement
In just a few short steps, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of your Compex® device.
How to Place Electrodes for the Triceps Muscles
You’ll need one 2x4 Compex® electrode and two 2x2 Compex® electrodes. Place the electrodes at the start and end points of the triceps muscle group. An easy way to identify those points is to flex the muscle group. Put the 2x4 electrode at the top of the tricep muscle, and a couple inches below, place the 2x2 electrodes.
For the Compex® Wired devices, connect the black snap to the 2x4 electrodes on top. Use the corresponding red snap on the 2x2 electrodes just below.
For the Compex® Wireless the setup is the same. Attach one pod to the top electrode and the other end of the same pod onto the electrode just below. If there is slack, you can twist the pod to tighten.
