Worked for me, as well.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dr. Scholl's DR6624 Toe-Touch Foot Spa with Bubbles and Massage (Health and Beauty)
WARNING: NOT for persons with diabetes or if you have an open cut on the foot. (From the tag on the AC power cord.) Do NOT stand up in it -- it will break from your weight! (From the manual.) Recommended session length: 10 min. Max time turned on for one session: 20 min (from the manual). That said, it works for me. I used the elbow test to select desired tap water temperature, poured it into the foot spa, and turned on the vibrator/heater. Ten min. later -- enough for me -- temperature seemed the same to my elbow. The spa is very noisy when the "bubble machine" function is turned on; sounds like a 1950s vacuum cleaner. I'll do without that feature. It holds five pints of water to the --MAX-- fill line; its design makes it v-e-r-y easy to lift and empty without fear of spill.

J. Chen Wing,
I am not sure why use of this device is contraindicated for persons with diabetes.
I was simply passing on the printed warning, "From the tag on the AC power cord" to advise anyone who has a loved one with diabetes (as I had) that this device might not be suitable -- or at least the user must accept whatever special, diabetes related risk there might be.
More I can't add.

Diabetics can cause foot and toe numbness. User would then be unable to determine the correct temp of the water and it could be too hot, thus causing burns to the feet.
