When reviewing foot massagers most people will look at the price. The factors for getting the right foot massagers should not just be if they are cheap or not. The quality is also important as well as its efficiency. There should be several things to consider when getting a foot massager.
Factors in Getting Foot Massagers
Several factors come to mind when getting a foot massager. Here are a few factors:
Endurance – You need to look at its endurance. There is no point getting a foot massager that will break the first time you turn it on. The built of the foot massager should be rugged but still comfortable to your feet.
Speed Variations – Each foot massager will have various levels of speed where the bubbles are activated if it is a water based foot massager like the white Homedics FB-30 Bubble Bliss Foot Bubbler with Heat or the Homedics FMS-200HB-CA Shiatsu Elite Foot Massager, 1-Count.
Vibration or Kneading – You have to determine also what you want the foot massager to do. Do you want it to knead under your feet like a true massage? Or, do you want it simply to vibrate under your feet in order to loosen up the muscles? If you take for example, the Dr. Scholl’s Shearling Foot Massager with Heat, it acts like a slipper you slipped your feet in and it vibrates giving you a massage effect to both feet.
Easy to Store – Most of the foot massagers available on the market today are easy to store. If you have a small apartment and need to store it after its use, you will have to consider a foot massager easy to put in the closet or under your bed. It must be also light in weight so you can carry it to your desired relaxing location. You may also want to bring it with you on a business trip after some long standing hours.
Preset or Manual – Many foot massagers will have regulators where you can preset your vibration. This is important because once you adopt a setting you like and that is efficient for your feet, you can leave it on that preset and not bother to change it the next time. One foot massager which has an excellent preset function is the Sunny Health&Fitness SH-0601 Foot Massager
As you can see, there are other factors to consider other than price when looking to buy a foot massager that will work for you. While we are talking of price an affordable and efficient foot massager you may want to look at is the Dr. Scholl’s DRFB7007B Ultimate Pampersing Foot Spa with Aroma Therapy at a reasonable price of $39.99 in our Healthy and Happy Feet Store and also the Dr. Scholl’s DRMA7802B Arctic Heat Foot Massager at $53.78 also in our Happy Feet Store.
Foot Massagers – Bottom Line
The bottom line when getting a foot massager and especially if you are a diabetic is to get the right foot massager for you. You may want to give on the price a bit in order to get a quality item that will ease the pain in your ankles and under your feet.
