    Hi everyone
    Have been registered for ages now - never posted a thread so far - always got side tracked when reading through the immense amount of subjects/info/discussions. However here I am now. Some of yu may well stop reading after this next bit .... I am a podiatry assistant .... not only that but a new breed of assistant which means I have had to train on a Foundation Degree Course ..... however - it also means I can be more useful as a team member. Enough of that for the moment though ... I have been asked for my opinion on this device (it vibrates at various speeds and I think after seeing one today - some models have tens pads included for use). Until now I have not commented as I had spoken to anyone with first hand experience - today however I saw the beast and heard a glowing recommendation from the user. The gentlman concerned suffers from leg cramps, swelling of ankles and generally painful feet with the result that he has been limited in his walking range. He uses this machine every morning for 20mins and says he feels the benefits all day in that his ankles rarely swell now and there is significant decrease in leg pain. Anyone else got anything to report on this machine??? It vairies in price depending on where you look but the cheapest I have seen is just under £100 so although I would never recommend any patient go out and buy one - if there is a strong negative opinion then I might be better placed to advise they perhaps should hold on to their money for the moment.

    Hi & <feel free to place real name here> :welcome:

    Hmmmmmmmmmm.....

    Could the gadget in question be similar to those previously discussed ----> here? :rolleyes:

    Have a read of the discussions & form an opinion. Always worth weighing up the pros & cons ;)

    For my money..................... Anything tagged as Snake Oil is worth resisting until some research of actual value is performed & published by individuals not making a £ or $ from the sales.

    Kindest regards,

    Mandy.

    Many thanks for your almost instant reply Twirly!! Thanks also for leaving a link to access all the previous discussions about this type of machine. All make very interesting reading - didn't know about these machines until quite recenlty but obviously from reading the discussions, they've been around for quite a few years.
    Many thanks for being so helpful to a newcomer
