You will be amazed at how light your legs feel after just a few minutes. All the controls can be turned on and off with your toes! That alone is a great feature. This unit has special "Toe-Tap" features. You can turn on the lo/hi vibration intensity button with your big toe of your left foot. The Heat on/off button can be pressed with your right big toe and then the massage on/off button is easy to turn on with your heel. You can also turn the lo/hi and on/off button with your heel
The unit feels warmer when you turn the massage function off and could be used in those cold days of winter when you just don't feel like wearing slippers. Once you turn off the infrared heat function, you will still feel the heat for quite a while.
The massage platform has raised accunodles (raised bumps in the plastic) for the stimulation of the soles of your feet.
The instructions recommend only using this unit for about 15 minutes or less. I found 3 minutes was a good amount of time and produced the desired light leg feeling. This is a unit you use while seated and standing on it can cause damage. They also recommend using the unit with "socked feet" and never with shoes.
The perfect gift for anyone who sits at their desk for most of the day or for those friends who stand all day and just want to come home, sit on the couch and relax.
This unit will fit nicely under your bed (or some couches) or you might just want to keep it permanently under your desk! That is where my "Foot Pro" is going to live.
~The Rebecca Review
1. The electric cord is about a foot too short.
2. The vibrator is underpowered. You'll use the device on the high setting all the time, and still not get the relief you need.
3. The unit is so light, that it moves around on a smooth floor (it's okay on a rug).
Overall, the impression is one of cheapness.
However, being able to control the product with my toes was fairly nice, and I do use it occasionally. I just don't think it should have been labeled as a"Pro Ultra." There's nothing really "ultra" about it.
It definitely is NOT a massager, just a vibrating machine. Now I must confess that I wasn't 'fooled' or 'tricked' or anything, I knew it would vibrate. I just figured that with so many positive reviews I might like the vibrating action. Trust me, if you're not sure whether you'll like a vibrating machine at your foot, chances are you WON'T.
Since I can't return this product due to the promotion, I've learned how to 'tolerate' the vibrations by putting only portions of my foot on the machine at a time. For instance, I just use the ball of my foot or the toes only - then the vibrations don't feel so bad. Still, who wants to learn how to 'tolerate' a product!
As for the infra-red heat - I think most other reviews said the same thing, it's lukewarm at best. I seriously doubt it could keep you warm in winter.
So unless you actually like vibrating machines at your feet (or if you get it for practically free like I did) I would strongly recommend that you NOT waste your money with this product.
In response to a few other reviews here, I must admit that the machine doesn't heat as much as I'd like, and the cord is about a foot too short, but I really do consider this a good value for the price.
The foot pad area is large enough to accommodate feet even bigger than mine (!), and the massager, especially when set on high, hits all the right sopt, just on the bottom of the arch, and that sore spot beneath the toes. After a good 15 minutes of "regular" massage, I like to curl my toes under or contort my feet sideways, to get even more coverage!
No, this isn't a miracle cure for tired feet. But it's a nice, relaxing end to a hard day. I recommend this product to anyone with realistic expectations of its benefits, but who still is willing to take a chance on a nice, relaxing product.
