Used successfully by many of the world's top athletes,
the Tendonworks™ unit is now widely available.
Daniel Carter, International Rugby Player "I have been using Tendonworks™ for a while and find it easy to use. It helped me recover faster and stronger, to get me back on the field"
Andrew Farrell OBE. England & Saracens Rugby Union,
Great Britain and Wigan Rugby League. "I have been using the Synapse
Tendonworks unit to treat tendon injuries.This has been the most
effective treatment I've used. It significantly reduces my tendon
pain, enabling me to train fully and continue to play."
Rikki Fifton - British 100m & 200m international sprinter:
On using the Recovery and Performance units: great to use after tough sessions for minor aches & pains. Really feel the difference since I've been using it.
Tom Varndell, Wasps: Almost completely sorted my tendonopathy in my knee. Great product, a must for any sportsman. So easy to use.
Jamie Noon: Whilst playing on the hard pitches in France I developed achilles tendon problems and tried everything to ease it. It wasn't till I started to use the tendon works unit that I found a solution at last. It's really easy to use and very portable so I can take it with me to away games too.
James Hall, Newcastle Falcons: I found them [the units] really useful for getting the blood flowing in areas that stiffen up, and aid recovery.
Ali Williams: thanks for helping me out team, love ya work
Gareth Owen, Ospreys Rugby:
On completing our customer feedback form, Gareth has said that whilst suffering with delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) he usually gets a massage or does some recovery in the swimming pool and now he uses his Recovery unit after most sessions. On being asked if he thinks the Recovery unit has been effective on specific areas he has used it on (namely his calf, upper thigh, whole leg, both legs, lower back, whole back, both arms, shoulders and whole body) Gareth said yes and that he would recommend the Recovery unit to a friend!
Andy Buckley BSc MSc (Sports Physiotherapist and Osteopath): I have been utilising the Tendonworks units since 2010 for a variety of chronic achilles tendon complaints and have found, in adjunct with physiotherapy techniques and exercise rehabilitation, we are achieving excellent results.
Richard Foskett (a runner treated by Andy Buckley of Team Buckley): After suffering a partial rupture of the achilles and having the tendon scraped, it has now been a year since Richard started using Tendonworks. "Progress has been good. The tendon still looks lumpy but feels strong enough. I have been getting into long bike rides at the weekend and up until recently I alternated runs and rides with an average of 4 sessions a week. I started running races in October  jogging at the back and gradually getting back to racing. Since October i have managed 4 Met Leagues, three other races and the County at nearly 12km. I have only rarely been running on two consecutive days and the max running times have risen very slowly from about 35 mins to 65 mins currently averaging 45 - 50 mins. I wore spikes for the first time [in January] at Trent Park and there was no reaction, and I have now managed a couple of very hard finishes - I hesitate to say the word sprint.
When I look back there was a real turning point after the last week of using the device [Tendonworks] in early November . Before that the tendon was somehow sensitive and I would be conscious of sensations or small pains. After that week the tendon went much quieter and I had what seemed like a completely free use. Meaning I could go and run without thinking about the tendon at all. Since then the running has steadily come back.
I have to say a big thank you. Your words were it will come back but it will be very slow.
Richie Barlow, National League Hockey Player: I was sent both the recovery and performance units before Christmas. I have experienced several injuries and setbacks over the past three years (broken ankle, two torn hamstrings and hip flexor problems), although I have attempted comebacks and have been playing at National League level I have never felt as though I have been fully fit, and have become prone to injury. I took the step at the beginning of the year (2012) to step back from playing and concentrate on addressing my imbalances and improving my strength and fitness levels in order to make a fully fit return to hockey.
The synapse recovery unit I was sent is very easy to use and is helping me to recover faster and stronger, I have particularly noticed that the tightness in my hamstrings is easing as part of a stretching routine and use of the recovery unit after sessions.
'I have been visiting Andy Buckley on and off for a number of years concerning various sporting injuries. My current visits concern my Achilles tendons. I missed the Julie Rose 10k for the first time in many years (October 2009) and eventually conceded that I needed help. In March I attended physiotherapy. At the second session of physio Andy made mention of Tendonworks and suggested I looked on the website to make my own mind up. Knowing that there is no quick fix to Achilles tendons I was anxious to try anything that might speed things up and the research looked promising. Considering the cost I was somewhat disappointed that when using Tendonworks I couldn't actually feel anything happening. The machine was used in conjunction with daily exercises suggested by Andy and regular physiotherapy. However on 14 May I ran, it was only for 20 minutes in chunks of 1 minute jogging and 2 minutes walking. I am delighted to say that I feel fine. This is after less than 2 months of treatment. So even if I couldn't feel anything during the Tendonworks obviously something was going on and I am absolutely delighted with the outcome. I would advise that I have been diligent both in the use of the Tendonworks machine and also with the exercises suggested, I have also attended physiotherapy under the guidance of Andy. It has worked for me. However, I followed the regime to the letter – there is no quick fix for this injury.
"During the 2010 World Cup Finals (in South Africa) we used Synapse micro-current system for some of our players (England) who were suffering with chronic Tendonopathy. The feedback we received from the players was very good, they felt it helped relieve their morning stiffness and reduced their pain throughout the tournament.
We used it x3 sessions per day. I believe that this micro current system definitely helps as part of a structured rehabilitation protocol when dealing with Chronic Tendonopathy and would recommend the synapse system."
Dave Hancock MSc MCSP Physiotherapist
Synapse micro-current Tendonworks unit is simply the best. Under the guidance of my club physio, Bob Stewart, the unit helped me recover from a very serious injury. Amazingly I was back playing premiership rugby 6 weeks sooner than was initially predicted.
Lesley Vainikolo – Gloucester Rugby Player
The Synapse micro-current technology has been used on a number of Gloucester Rugby players. With its ability of speeding up the body's natural healing process it has proved to be a really efficient addition to the treatment of tendon and soft tissue injuries. The Tendonworks unit has recently helped one key first team player recover from a ruptured Achilles tendon. After using the unit daily, as recommended, he was back playing 6 weeks sooner than I would have expected.

even greater pressure on professional clubs now. With proposed
smaller budgets and squads, we need to ensure that players
are better prepared, train more efficiently and generally looked
after better. We are constantly looking for the best ways of
achieving this for our players and from what we've seen, Synapse
microcurrent provides significant advantages in these areas.

"I totally believe in this technology. It's like nothing else out there"
Steve Bates, Former England Saxons, Newcastle Falcons and Borders Director Of Rugby
Synapse micro-current was identified by our head Physio Rodger Knibbs as a must have product for player rehab from injury, injury prevention and player recovery.
Synapse micro-current assisted numerous players at London Wasps with injury recovery over the past 3 seasons. According to the medical staff at London Wasps, there are a number of players who would not have been fit for key matches over the past 3 seasons if it had not have been for Synapse micro-current.
I have seen the success of this product with my own eyes and am convinced of its value to the elite and non elite sports market. I firmly believe that those elite sports organisations using Synapse micro-current as part of a bespoke managed player programme will gain that vital edge which we all know can be the small margin between success and failure.

products. Players felt less tired, gave the feedback they were
able to train harder and injuries cleared up quicker without re

Roger Knibbs – Former Wasps team physiotherapist
“Synapse micro-current speeds up the natural healing process and there is currently no other treatment which is as efficient. Typically, after an injury re-occurrence of the same injury is common however, it seems whilst using Synapsew micro-current there seems to be no re-occurrence of injury and players can use the device on a number of different ailments. Each player now has one and uses the device as and when they need it. Synapse micro-current as part of a proper physiotherapy programme is an invaluable tool.”
Synapse micro-current has become a necessary piece of equipment with some of the world’s leading sportsmen. With its ease of application, this drug free device is fast becoming a major contribution to the daily fitness routine of these top sportsmen.
Dr. David Chapman Jones has pioneered a new non evasive way to treat tendon and ligament damage returning the player to full athletic function. The secret to its success is the way in which it kick starts the regenerative process rather than the repair process which makes way for more economic healing.
This player sustained a split to his sesamoids and was informed by a leading physiotherapist, that the likelihood of him returning to play was slim.
Team physiotherapist Roger Knibbs adds; “Phil’s outlook was pretty bleak he had sustained a serious injury which would have prevented him from playing professionally if at all. Synapse micro-current technology has helped tremendously to his return to professional rugby.”
Sustained a severe Achilles tendon rupture. Roger Knibbs said the scan showed a significant amount of damage with a lot of fluid and the tissue structure was a real mess. The cells weren’t laid down correctly (pics to show) Johnny began his treatment four months after injury so his recovery time was a little longer than normal but returned to play within 6 months. “I couldn’t believe how easy the device was to use, I have since used it on a number of different injuries and it has helped me to recover a lot quicker from a hard game.”
Craig Dowd Severely ruptured his Achilles and immediately began using microcurrent twice a day. Within four months, Craig had returned to play with no related form of injury. “This is a truly amazing treatment I cannot believe how fast I was able to return to play and the discomfort almost diminished as soon as I started to use it
Willie Mullins comments about the treatment on Be My Royal: 'My vet and I were delighted with the rapid rate of recovery. Quite unbelievable that this horse is even being considered for riding again let alone racing'.
