    I bought PowerDot e-stims to aid my recovery. I put them on my quads and I got a wery different responce between right and left side??

    On the right side you can see twitching and on the left side nothing. Is it normal?

    I trid to switch the patces from right side to left but with the same result.

    In my experience that comes from slight differences in the placement of the pads.
    If on one leg you are right on spot and on the other not -> different response.

    Try moving the electrodes a bit, I assume we humans aren’t 100% symmetric 😉

    Other reason I can think of: worn out pads, but that is unlikely if you bought the device new.

    On my Compex device I can adjust the electrical signal for each canal: this also helps to fine-tune the contractions.
