Actegy Names Guy Lafleur as Canadian Brand Ambassador
Actegy Health, a leading consumer health technology company, is pleased to announce the appointment of Hockey Hall of Fame Legend, Guy Lafleur, as the Canadian Brand Ambassador for their RevitiveTM branded line of products.
Launched in Canada in May 2011, the Revitive Circulation Booster has quickly become a top selling item at Canadian pharmacies and Home Health Care stores. The Revitive Circulation Booster is a medical device that uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to improve blood circulation in the lower legs and feet, and can help alleviate painful swollen feet and ankles. While Electrical Muscle Stimulation as a therapy is not new, harnessing it into an easy to use, home device is what makes the Revitive Circulation Booster so unique and appealing to the thousands of Canadians already using it.
Guy joins the likes of Sir Stephen Redgrave (UK Olympic Hero), Dawn Fraser (Australian Olympic Hero), Colin Meads (New Zealand Football Hero) and Engle Olsen, (Norwegian Soccer Hero) who are Revitive Brand Ambassadors in their respective countries.
A national TV campaign featuring hockey legend, Guy Lafleur, talking about how the Revitive Circulation Booster has helped him, will launch on November 26, 2012.
“At Actegy Health we believe everyone deserves to feel positive about their health”, said Pamela Gareau, Director of Marketing at Actegy Health. “Since Actegy’s inception in the UK in 2003, we have seen our products make a lasting impact on people’s well-being. There was no question in our minds who we wanted to represent our product in Canada. Guy Lafleur holds a special place in the hearts of most Canadians. The fact that he is one of Canada’s greatest hockey heroes is a large part of that, but it’s also who he is as an individual. He is truly a warm, generous and down to earth man ”.
Guy was sent a unit to try and, within one short week, called Actegy to say just how amazing he thought the product was; “I tried it, my wife tried it, and we really liked it! Revitive really helped with the soreness and pain in my legs that I used to feel daily. It is a great product”.
“With an estimated 10 million Canadians suffering from the effects of poor circulation, we are hoping that Guy sharing his experience with the product will encourage more Canadians to try it out. If it can help someone with chronic leg and ankle pain, like Guy, imagine what it can do for the rest of us!” said Gareau.
The Revitive Circulation Booster is available across Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart, Shoppers Home Health Care, Pharmaprix, Jean Coutu, London Drugs and Lawton’s. It is also available at select IDA, Guardian and Pharmasave pharmacies.
