This was purchased for my parents who have arthritis...it bruised my moms hand on low level and the heat setting on low caused her hand to become red...my fathers hand would not fit inside.
It will never replace a human hand massage but does a pretty good hand massage.
Hands up for this one.
My sister broke the lower part of her arm recently and has had issues with her hand since then. When I got this for her I never imagined how immediately she would feel a difference. Now were even recommending it to those with arthritis and other hand issues. The increased blood circulation and gentle pressures seem to be increasing her hand movements and lessening her pain.
Review of hand massager
Aids my husbands hands after long day on computer.
I have arthritis in my hands and usually ask my husband to rub them. This product warms your aching hands and massages them at the same time. Wonderful. You can see the dents in my skin from its massaging "fingers", but they dont hurt my skin.
My husband has arthritis in both hands and I purchased this product in the hopes it would help. First use was a success and he has used it a few times everyday since it arrived. He is really happy with the purchase.
Perfect for sore hands
My husband had hand surgery a few years ago and since then feels somewhat arthritic and sore by the end of the day. He appreciates a good hand rub. This device does just that, giving him some relief. The heat is a nice addition. There are multiple levels depending on your need. We would recommend this product
I use this for my arhtritic hands and am amazed at the power it has for pressure and massage for a relatively low price. I wish the heating element prvided a warmer environment. the heat is only in the palm area. But still for the price, very worth the purchase
It takes awhile.
The first time I used it I didnt think it did anything. After a few uses on each hand my hand felt cold. This was with using heat. After 2 days my hands are no longer swollen in the morning. So yes it does work just not in the first 15 minutes.
Not for me
Purchased the Sharp Image Hand Massager for myself but my hand is so deformed from Arthritis that it is forced into a very uncomfortable position and it is very painful. This product is not for me but seems that it should work for most. Hopefully I can find some one who can use it.
Great and a must buy!
The hand massager is very ideal to get especially for a chiropractor because of the constant usage of hands. Its very relaxing and the pressure points when your using the massager is perfect for the amount of pressure used. Only one issue was at a point of massaging the air pressure becomes extremely tight and a bit uncomfortable but thats an easy fix with the air release button that helps function that issue. I would definitively recommend this product to everyone.
awsome on the hand
I just had hand surgery and this massager helps to get feeling back in my hand.
I will be keeping this.
I type all day and often cant do the things Id like to do around the house because my hands hurt so much. Ive only had this for a few days, so I dont know how much therapeutic value this product will ultimately provide me, but it feels soooo good in the evening. Its not going back. Also, Ive seen reviews that refer to the inadequate heat this provides, I dont share that complaint. The heat is fine, I would welcome more, but its just fine.
As good as physical therapy.
I have a condition known as Dupuytrens which leads to contraction of my fingers. After soaking my hand in melted wax for 15 minutes, I use the hand massager for 30 minutes. It loosens the tendons as well as the physical therapist.
I would buy this again
Bought to help sore hands. It really works. I put each hand in for 15 minutes, and they feel great for hours.
Its a great massage- but for my particular problem - I need something that I can type and get relief at the same time- I will order the arthritis gloves
Review of Hand Massager
I and my wife are planning to use every day.
It is very good that it gives pressure and heat, however it would be nicer if it gives vibration too. One more I want to mention is that it does not cover up to wrist but again I have to remember myself it is Hand Massager, not wrist Massager.I am very much excited and hopeful that this unit would reduce the pain of my hand joint.
Great for stiff hands
Feels like heaven
The sensation of heat coupled with massaging action is so sublime that I sometimes drift into sleep when I have it set for a fifteen-minute workout. Im getting addicted to it! My husband tried it too, but his arthritis made it unpleasant for him.
I use this hand massager after a long day of work. I mainly work with my hands, so the massager really helps me relax and keeps my hands from tensing up!
not what Id hoped for
First time I turned it on the wave massage lurched and squeezed hard. Then the machine didnt work at all until I gently tapped it on the table and it started up more calmly. Sometimes it stops and requires waiting and tapping again.
The touch controls are too hard for me to press on and off.
It does not do what I need for my hands, especially with its temperamental performance.
Probably Ill return the hand massager.
still waiting to use it
item returned the day I got it did not work when plugged in LED display would flash on then off (sometimes)or maybe not come on at all
item appeared used as "plastic film" over LED that they say remove before use was not there
Item will not arrive at their return facility till tomorrow - will update when I get a working unit
Does the job
I purchased a hand massager for my husband to use in an attempt to find relief from the pain he suffers from arthritis. He uses it 2 or 3 times a day. He is now able to grip and hold tools. It has also given him the ability to close his hands completely. Are we fans of this instrument and what it does to ease pain? You bet your boots we are!
Works great, has helped with pain Im having in my hands
Thank goodness to a friend
Deep massage action with auto shut off. If your hands are small, you can actually get the machine to massage the wrists as well. This machine feels much better than manual hand massages Ive gotten in the salon.
Comfort for tired, sore hands
Hand massager is a nice relaxant for hands that work hard! Although it could knead more into the muscles, it nicely stretches and compresses the hand rather well -- hard for a machine!
i use this product daily. i am a dental hygienst with moderate arthritis in my hands. this product brings pain relief and relaxation after a long work day.
exelent! my hands fell great
My hands haven`t felt this good in many years
Absolutely the Best Hand Massager in the Marketplace
Ive tried nearly every hand massager gadget on the market, as well as lotions, potions and creams galore, and this is truly the best product Ive used outside of a medical setting. Simply put, it is like a massaging hand womb for pain with heat to boot. The best aspect is your WHOLE HAND gets a massage and heat rather than just one side.
Im a writer, editor and consultant who is constantly on my computer... well, writing, editing and banging on a keyboard. Unfortunately, my personal and professional penchant for writing (and perhaps genetics) resulted in carpal tunnel syndrome. A catch-22 for any professional these days, Ive looked for a hand massager that actually offers relief since I simply cannot go to occupational and/or physical therapy three times a week.
Ive already had carpal tunnel surgery, so post-treatments are now my only option and steroids dont work on me. I was skeptical to buy yet another massager but the design of allowing the whole hand to get treatment convinced me to try it. I no
Great results with regular use
Daily for hands after work days. Great for decreasing pain and swelling in joints.
good at presure circulation, not massage
nice for relaxing pressure. but no real massage rubbing felt. very little heat or warmth felt.
Give Me A Hand Massager
Good product, works as described. A bit bigger and heavier than expected. Sharper Image did not fulfil the delivery promise and refused to refund next day delivery fee. I would recommend this product but not through Sharper Image.
Great hand massager
So far Ive been using hand massager for a week and it definitely helps alleviate pain and helps with circulation.
Works like a dream
This product is so easy to use you just turn on select your setting and kick back and relax. The pressure is perfect on both high and low settings and the heat radiates from the top so you dont get awfully sweaty. It breathes well. Also its fun because you look like youre a boxing coach ready to take punches in your mit:) I have fallen asleep with it on comfortably and it turns off after desired set time. Would recommend for anyone who needs some extra relaxation in their life.
I love it!
I love this product! It soothes my hand pain and cuts down on hand numbness I experience due to constant computer related work.
I would buy this product again.
The massage and the heat combined is great for tired and aching hands. Feels really good on joints.
good product, great price
My husband loves it.
When my hands hurt I use this,and after a couple of times on each hand my hands feel much better. The only downfall is that there is not enough heat on my hands.
Great hand massager
I have arthritist near my thumbs, this hand massage gets to the spot and to my surprise all my fingers feel great. Its not a permanent solution, but its certainly very useful and therapeutic. It may take a bit to get use to the compression, but you can let up on that as it s working with a press of one button, it continues but with less compression.
This product is being used for extreme hand soreness
yes, it makes me feel better
helps my hand joint pain. Use it when I am reading. Great hand massage. happy I bought it!
A gift from spouse. Recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Hands crampy and achy and this really helps.
Very relaxing, therapeutic
Helps with soreness after a long hard day.
Hand Vibrator and Heater
When my left hand is really hurting from arthritis this has really calmed down the inflammation and pain.
Total hand compression messager
They work great. But mine began to leak after 3 months. Another one had compression that was less than the first. Sharper image took very good care of me though.
The heat and compression really relieve pain for my wifes arthritis. She loves them.
Love it. Its a must for anyone who suffers with arthritis or hand pain
My sister is a potter...it was a gift and she loves it...it really helps her tired achy hands after a day of tough work.
Wife types all day and this helps relieve stress and pain in her hands
It makes my hand feel better!
Helps with the pain and stiffness in fingers.
Good product that performs well.
Good gift look for sale prices.
I have arthritis in my hands. This machine massages my whole hand. I actually go to sleep.
My hands, wrists, and forearms get tight and sore. I have been diagnosed with tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. This machine has taken the edge off. I expected the machine to pulse more quickly and randomly, similar to a massage machine we have that "knocks" on our back fast and slow and at different points/locations and time, but that was my expectation, not from any misleading descriptions. It is good though. Probably the best design possible considering the fact that its a hand and trying to reach all areas possible.
This item is amazing. Bought it for my wife, but Ive also used it too. Does a great simulating a hand massage. The heat and compression feel really great , can totally recommend it.
Comfortable hand massage at the end of the day feels great
Use every night. Relaxing. Sometimes I fall asleep! Even though used with clean hands, wish liner was removable for washing. Was an early Mothers Day gift. Helps with arthritis. Love it! Have recommended it to coworkers.
Not what I was hoping for
I have pain along the top and bottom of my thumbs and in the part of my palm where the thumb joins the hand. I was hoping to have a deep tissue rolling type movement as the machine squeezed and heated my hand but this device didnt offer that. It did heat my hand but the heat didnt go far enough over to cover the outside thumb portion of my hand. Likewise, the varying air compression massage didnt reach the thumb portion of my palm.
I have small hands and the machine was a pretty good fit for me. I dont think it would work on a mans hand. The machine was simply constructed and easy to use. I like that you can see the timer as it counts down the massage.
sitting watching television, nice to get a massage
as I have nerve damage in my right hand. No change in my condition after numerous sessions and heat that is promised by product is seemingly absent
Easy to use.
Takes a little getting used to, but Wow!
I bought this as a gift for my mom, and just had to try it myself. At first, the squeezing massage didnt feel like much. But after a few minutes it started to feel really good. The heat was just right: warm without being overpowering. I suggest using it while watching TV, 15 minutes on one hand, 15 minutes on the other hand. Mom liked it too, so this gift was a big hit.
Simple to use. Soothing for my hands
I would recommend this product!
Really comfortable with heat and cloth interior. Good pressure on both settings. Light weight makes it easy to position. Works great!
Relieves hand soreness
It helps loosen my hands up
I have osteoarthritis in my hands. This product seems to be helping me regain flexibility. Still working on the pain part, but have only had it for a week.
relax your hands!
SInce I knit and sew a lot, this is just what I need to relax my hands for me when I am done for the day-
The air and heat combine to bring my hands back for normal use -
We bought this for my mother in law because she spends all day every day picking vegetables and planting. Her hands have carpel tunnel and she can barely get feeling in them. When she first used it, she loved it instantly. She enjoyed the pressure and the heat together. I recommend this product to anyone who needs hand massages regularly to get by.
Releases the stress
This is a quick was of relaxing the tension in your hands without taking shots.
Works better than I expected
I have arthritis in my hands and after a day of working on the computer or driving a long distance, they often ache. I wasnt sure this would be worth the money, but was willing to give it a try. It really helps. My daughter even used it and even though her hands werent hurting, she noticed that they felt better afterwards. I think it must be that it helps to increase blood flow.
I wish it was a little bit quieter so it wouldnt bug my husband while were watching tv.
Fantastic device - works wonders!!
This thing helps ease my hand pain and has reduced the number of visits to the chiropractor!!
relaxing while reading a book
its make for a great gift
like the Product
Product used to relive hand stiffness
Not sure if it helps but feels nice
Its not clear that it really offers a massage. It provides undulating pressure that feels ok but it doesnt provide the relief of a true massage.
Im sorry, Sharper Image, this is a piece of junk.
It was a Fathers Day gift. Sadly I have to spend $15 to send it back because the Total Hand Massager doesnt massage, all it did was vibrate a little.
Great but not for everyone
I bought this product as a holiday present for my sister who has slight arthritis in her hands. She did not like it as it was too powerful a massage for her. I however really like it. You really feel the massage and my hands felt great after. I think the controls are confusing because you can turn the heat and massage down but it isnt intuitive while your using it. Also, when I went to return it I found out you cannot return any masssagers. The deal is final when you purchase it. So be careful. On the plus side I now have a hand massager that I would not have bought for myself but am glad I have.
I bought this for my wife, who has bad arthritis in her hands. She uses it daily and absolutely loves it. I have used it as well and it does do a really good job.
Good for poor circulation in hands. It provides gentle to firm massaqge. The infrared heat setting is not noticeable to most people.
I got this for my husband who is a steel fabricator and has very sore tired hands. He uses it every night while watching TV. Great product.
My Wife Loves it
My wife has had arthritic pain in her hands for several years and has been using every cream, every pill, and every device she could find. Unfortunely, nothing has offered her much relief until this hand-massager from Sharper Image. Now, for the first time in years, she has found something that actually helps. She LOVES it!
Since its bulky anyway it could have been an inch longer. My worst arthritis is in the heel of my thumb and I have to keep forward pressure with my hand to get any massage at all where I need it most.
The heat does not work on this machinel.
It does not work and now I have to pay freight to return it.
The massager feels good on aching hands.
The massager does well on aching hands although it could use a little more heat.
Bear hugs for your hands
Helps reduce the pain associated with osteo arthritis. Very soothing and rel.
Not worth the money!!!
It is really not a massager at all. Rather, it is an inflation/pressure device. The basic massage setting is not useful at all - you cannot feel anything. The setting buttons are difficult to press and they do not respond well to touch. Overall, I would never recommend this product.
This is by far, my husbands favorite Christmas gift. He loves it more than I could have imagined. He uses it all the time & it relaxes him so much, he falls asleep.
Great for his aching hands.
Okay I guess
Not certain if this was a returned one since the batteries were already installed.
The directions were fairly useless but once you start pressing buttons you can figure it out. The LED does not seem to work when running on battery alone. Even on the lightest setting it is too much pressure for me and it gets tiresome always having to utilize the release button. The pressure setting does not seem to stay put the entire duration, it ramps itself up to the highest pressure setting all on its own. The heating seems to only cover your palm and not fingers.
I have used it a few times a day now and for hand/muscle pain it does not seem to help at all. When it is not crushing your hand it does feel nice however. Would I pay this much for something like this as a gift or suggestion, not really. If it was a gentle massage pressure as when I get one it would be great. Again, on the lightest setting it feels like a cinder block crushing your hand.
massager great for arthritic hands
great at the end of a busy day of typing, heat and massaging works like a charm
I love this massager
I bought the massager for my son who has rheumatoid arthritis but he was not able to use it because his hands are large and would not fit through the opening. I tried it and it was great comfort for my hands. The opening is small and you must be able to place your hand flat to use it.
Not as powerful as I had hoped
I bought this hoping is was going to be an upgrade from the Breo I bought last year. No such luck. Does not put enough pressure on your hands to make a difference. Ill be returning this item and ordering another Breo.
Absolutely a great investment
Purchased this product with the hope that it would be like live hand massages. The machine was actually better - stimulated the circulation with immediate results. My hands not only feel better but look better.
It Really Does the Job
I bought this as a gift for my wife, who works with her hands and they are always hurting her. I thought it was a wild shot but was desperate to find something that would help. She uses this every night while we watch TV and swears it is really helping. We are both so grateful! Really impressed with this product.
Christmas gift for my wife and she loves it!
After a long day at work she watches TV using the Hand Massager to relax her hands.
I use it all the time!
It is a little small for my hand
Just what the doctor ordered...hopefully
Bought this item as a gift for my wife. She has problems with her hands cramping while working in the kitchen, or any other chore requiring dexterity. So far her only complaint is the dimpling on her hands from the unit. Fortunately it doesnt last long, and her hands feel better almost immediately after starting the massage. She hasnt used it enough to give a more comprehensive review.
This hand massager has helped my carpal tunnel syndrome immensely! I use it daily for relief! It is so relaxing! I would highly recommend this for individuals who suffer any hand/finger pain.
Love the Wave feature!!!!
I am a cook and my hands hurt after a long days work. I ordered the shaper image hand massager and was very impressed with how well it works. Great pressure!Love the wave feature!
Works exactly as advertised
Works great to relieve pain
Just what she wanted ( and Im going to use it too! )
Just the needed comfort and relief needed before going to sleep .
Hands ache for a massage
I am a server and I get massages regularly. My hands always need more so I treated myself to this and love it!!!!
Makes the hands feel great. Highly recommended.
We love it!
I bought it for myself but I cant keep my husband away from it. He loves it too. I have mild arthritis in my fingers and if I need to release the compression I can quickly and easily. My husband has good hands but as his retirement job he bags at a local grocery store. His hands feel better after use.
Gift for wife
Purchased for my wife to sooth her hands after a full day of housekeeping. She has thoroughly enjoyed using this product. Its compact enough so she can use the product while sitting on the couch and watching TV at the end of a long day.
It is extremely difficult to push the heat button. I have to push several times before it will come on. On the plus side, the massage and heat helps to relieve the pain of arthritis in my left hand.
Good soothing hand massage
Great hand massage whenever hands feel tired or painful
My hands thank you!
I am waiting for Medicare to have carpal tunnel surgery...wasnt sure I was going to make it until I ordered this hand massager...I can adjust the pressure level depending on the condition of my hand...there is a difference that is very noticeable....love the heat also....I do recommend this product..not a luxury for me it is s necessity....
My wife owns a salon and spa where her hands get very sore from working so much when she gets home from work she puts the massager to the test she loves the product,so anyone thinking about this product for your wife or girlfriend its great! As for men it needs to be larger as my hands dont fit in all the way but I can say it is very powerful and it adjusts very well.
This item is wonderful! It provides a nice squeezing type of massage to my hand as well as gentle warmth. Highly recommend!
The product could not have been any better. It helps relieve pain and adds to your total relaxation.
This product definitely helps for tired, sore hands. Only drawback is once it starts it doesnt allow you to adjust the settings. I use this often, especially after working all day on a computer.
Not what I expected
The machine does apply pressure and release around the joints of my fingers, but I was hoping for a more massage like feel.
It seems to help with circulation-but I would not order this again.
Not Your Typical Massager
Saw this product in a catalog and thought itd be great for relieving the soreness in my hands after practicing guitar. I also play upright bass and keyboard, so this really comes in handy. Im sure its great for craftworkers, hand seamstresses, typists, etc.
My wife had broken her wrist and was in the middle of physical therapy when I bought this massage unit as a Christmas present. She says that the unit relaxes her hand and has helped her regain complete use of her hand and fingers where she had been complaining that making a fist and flexing her hand had been painful and very slow to improve.
Excellnt hand therapy
My wife is a dental hygienist with 20+ years of continuous employment. She is also an avid needlepointer. Her hands are strong but they have been stressed over the years. She has told me that the hand massager is wonderful; in fact she has shered the product and its concept with the ladies in her needlepointing group. This has turned out to be a wonderful gift to her.
Puchased as a gift, Ill let you know
I purchased this as a Christmas gift, I will have to let you know after the holidays.
Wife loves it.
Good for carpal tunnel.
Product works as described
This product has good pressure on the hand, but does not give pulsating pressure.
Great for my Musician Husband
Really soothing after a gig
Assist arthritis pain
Use this at night to help induce sleep
I bought this for my fiance because he works a lot with his hands. He broke one of them a long time ago and let it heal on its own (I know! This is before I met him) so it constantly bothers him. He LOVED this little hand massager. The compression is good and he says it makes his hands feel better.
My daughters finger joints started to ache with her job of manipulating small parts. Her hands feel better after using this, and she continues to use it on a regular basis.
horrible! It fills up with air a little then releases it.
There is nothing great about this. I was excited to get it and then totally let down after trying it. It fills up a little with air and not even enough to reach my hands then lets the air out. What a birthday let down.
Hope it will reduce the pain in my hands.
Hand Massager is OK.
Bought for Daughter who is Massage Therapist. She seemed happy about the purchase. It actually squeezes the hand with different air bladders, so it is not truly a "massage", but it helps.
It really does work
I work with my hands all day so this is a great thing for me! When I put my hand in the massager & it starts to soothe my hand, the rest of my body begins to relax too.
Bought this for my wife,she is happy with hand massager.
I bought this for my wife, who works with her hands and they hurt all the time. She uses it every night while watching TV after dinner and she says she really sees and feels a difference in how her hands feel. I am so grateful I bought this for her!!! I really didnt know what to expect and figured I may be throwing my money away, but my wife says this little machine is really making a difference, so thats 4 thumbs up!
Love It! cant live without this thing.
I would have given this 5 stars because I really love it but unfortunately for me, the heating element only worked once (the first time I tried it) and then never worked again. I used it for a few days, a couple of times a day before returning it for an exchange and the massage was delightful! I work at a computer 8-12 hours a day and some days my hand, fingers and wrist just ache and I have to wrap a wrist brace around it but this little massager is the answer - and it is so relaxing I just love it. I hated to have to send it back and be without it for the days it will take to get another unit but since the heating element was defective, I felt it best I take care of it right away. The truth is, the heating element is nice to have but if this just didnt come with one, I would still buy it and love it. but since it does come with the heating element and it wasnt working, I didnt want to hang on to a defective unit that might have other possible issues later with the massage part. Customer service was
Great for arthritis
My girlfriend uses this to massage her hands due to arthritis. Only cons are that it is not battery operated (not a big deal) and that it doesnt cover her wrists. Shed like her wrists to be massaged as well. Overall though, so far so good. She falls asleep using this massager.
Great for elderly
My Mom uses it every morning when her hands are stiff and sore. The warmth feels so good. She likes the massage gentler but I like the deep massage when I use it. Great product. Would recommend this
Not what I expected
I was really disappointed in the product. I thought it would actually massage. It compresses. It just squeezes your hand. Hard.
Works well but.....
Would be OK for a person with small hands but I bought it for my husband and he felt it was too small and could not feel the heat very well.
Stimulating for hands
Need ongoing help to recover from trauma and scar tissue damage to hand. I can only use low pressure setting but it is stimulating. The first one I received had a faulty heat option but the second seems fine. My husband also uses it for his painful and stiff hands and really thinks it helps. It is a little loud when in use. Great to use when watching TV but you need to turn the sound up!
excellent hand massager.
I use the power adapter that came with it and the unit seems to work wonderfully without any problems. Only problem is I do not feel any heat from the infra-red button.
I think it help with my arthritis!
With arthritis pain in my hands, it is a great comfort at night. Seems to help my pain the next day. Good thing there are pressure selections, this small machine has a lot of power. Wish the heat were more intense. Great gift! I use it every night.
Good hand pressure massage
Had decent pressure, but too painful for extreme arthritis sufferer.
was received with great joy.
Purchased for my daughter who is a private chef
and house manager. Her hand gets very sore as she uses it so often in her work which is repetitive work. She loves it and because of the battery she can take it to work.
Hands-down a HIT!
Christmas present for my wife...shes very pleased with the massager. Too soon to comment on battery life.
I do a lot of gardening, this massager helps my hands joint problem. Use it when you watching TV, very convenient and comfortable.
Small in size but it packs a punch
Compression is wonderfull,packs a punch
just what i needed
I need this to relax my hands at the end of the day after work.my hands feel like new after I use it. it is very helpful.
Worth the money
Great to relive hand cramps could use a longer rolling feature during the longer times massages.
This is now my go to help when my hand pain flairs. I can use it as long or as short as need be. I like that flexibility. Havent found anything I do not like about it so far except wish it was longer to get more of my wrist.
Very pleased with product
To help my mother massage her hand after her stroke
As good if not better than similar ones used by professionals.
Your hand in massage
My golfing husband has arthritis and this massager helps the stiffness and pain he experiences. It is made for multitasking. He is able to watch TV, snack,and use the hand massager all at the same time!
I love it
I have nerve damage to my hands so I use this daily. I heat feels good on my hands as well
hands down good
great for sore hands after a hard days work.
It is hard to tell? What to estimate?
I can not move the fingers, of my left hand? At the moment of use, it has control of the situation? After, a thirty minute session, the relief is present?
Cant live without
I have carpel tunnel and wake up several times a night from pain. I use braces but they dont help much. I also do acupuncture and massage therapy. I will be doing surgery but until then, this is my best friend,
We both enjoy the hand massager.
Use it while watching tv. Very quite.
I feel this product is helping my hands. They were numb and tingling on my fingertips and I feel this product is helpful.
Has Helped My Aching Hands
Ive had injuries to, and pain in, both thumbs (connecting muscles & ligaments to hand) during past year. I can tell with just two weeks use (1 to 2x day) that the pain/mobility has improved. My only issue is that the heat on the one I received is not working, so Im returning/exchanging it for a new one (although I hate to part with it during the shipping process). Hope it helps you too!
I bought this for my wife recently on Jan 2015. She really loves it. She is an accountant and heavy use computer daily. She uses this product everyday since she has it. She really loves it. I might buy another one for her at work in couple months. Lets see how it works out for her after a while of using.
This product is a real stress reliever!
This product really relieves tension and helps me to fall asleep every night, especially during swing shifts.
No more hand and joint pain
My wife suffers from osteo and rheumatoid arthritis and on a whim I got this for her from the Sharper Image catalog. I was the one who would be massaging her hand after a hard days work, now she just slips her hands in whenever they hurt and the portable hand messager does the rest. I cant say enough about how good this works and how well thought out the design is.
Everyday after work. Really helps work soreness out of hand and has helped circulation.
Very nice item, my wife loves it!!!
Great after working on computer all day, really helps the hands!!
Very soothing ... relaxing ..........ah!
My husband (a guitar player) has complained of hand aches and pains but now has quick and long-lasting relief from this unit. I love it too and find it very relaxing to use. A great, adjustable massage.
Must say however that we gave one as a gift to my mid-80s relative and she found it very painful only because of her swollen arthritic knuckles - even on the lightest settings. Thats what we got it for. Now we wish we had it for her earlier on in her problems. There is a no-return policy on this unit. Well find someone else to give it to.
i will purchase another
a gift for my 93 yr old Mom. her hands are now stiff and she has considerable pain..... the Hand Massager I purchased for her on her birthday seems to be working wonders. the heat in the machine along with the gentle massage has helped her... GREAT PRODUCT !!!!!!
ordered a second the first was so good
Father had stroke and husband has arthritis. Ordered one for dad for Christmas and my husband nearly wore it out before we gave it to dad so I ordered a second one for hubby. It has given him untold relief from arthritis and my dad says it is helping his circulation for stroke.
Wife Loves It
My wife loves using the hand massager after a day of work on the computer. Shes a graphic designer who is constantly clicking her mouse, which has been causing her pain for years. This product helps relieve that tension and pain.
I got this for my mom. She has arthritis and told me that this was perfect for her to us in the evening when she is relaxing. I says that it is really helping her hurting hands.
"It has the squeeze and the wave"
I became interested in this product immediately when I saw it online because of its potential to improve circulation in my hands and also assist with my efforts in maintaining joint mobility in my fingers as a result of chronic diabetes and psoriatic arthritis. Its a privilege to be able to share my personal experience using the Hand Massager on a consistent basis which has resulted in much improved joint movement and flexibility. The more immediate observable changes were the circulation improvements in my hands. The stark color difference going from a pale unhealthy looking white to a healthy red makes me happy. This product is great.
My husband carries this massager around the house with him. Best gift I ever bought him.
This product really works!!!
provides relief for sore hands!!
I have a lot of pain in my hands and I think regular use is making it better. Time will tell, but if this holds up I will rave about this product. Improvement will be gradual so it will take time to tell. My hands are always cold, so I was disappointed that it does not get very hot. However, after massage they are warmed up and feel good.
Great way to end the day. Comforting!
Great way to end a stressful day. Hand massage! The acupressure soothes out the stress of the day. The heat is a bonus!
Helps my stiff hand after wrist surgery
I had a bad wrist break and surgery. Have been to weeks of OT, and have found this item to be helpful for stiff fingers esp. in morning or during weather changes.
I use on left hand and not sure it is equally comfortable on left and right, unless the discomfort is due to surgical status of my hand.
Would buy again.
Simple relief with a durable and Simple Machine
My wife is dealing with some minor nerve/carpel tunnel issues which can create annoying issues, such as numb fingers. This machine does the job in bringing temporary relief as she heals.
My wife had carpal tunnel surgery about a year ago and her hand is always sore and tired after a long day. This hand massager has been a god send.
Gift for my wife who grooms show dogs. She has painful arthritis in both hands and this has been a great help.
So relaxing and had a hard time keeping it away from other family members.
Gave as gift (somewhat humorous) to a notary public friend. Added a bottle of lavender for extra special & relaxing gift. She loved it.
I like it so far
I having been using for 1 week or so and my hands feel better overall. I like it!
Total Hand Pressure Massager
Gave to my wife for Christmas. She seems to like it
I bought this for my sister-in-law who owns a house cleaning business her hands stay sore all the time and she absolutely loved the gift I will definitely be buying one myself in the near future for myself
Needs to be larger
The opening should be larger, this would allow the entire hand to benefit from the massage
Neuropathy is so painful. We have spent hundreds of dollars on different gadgets trying to obtain some level of comfort. This works!
Have arthritis and pain in hands works great so far.
It really works, and works well!
I am a massage therapist, and I offer it to my clients and they love it!
Gets the job done
Controls dont allow for a lot of flexibility when trying to change the settings. Works well massaging. I have used others in the past and this one is most comfortable. Only issue is it would be nice if it was long enough to include the whole hand and wrist.
already recommended it to others
I am a massage therapist and use this to keep my hands feeling good. It is an awesome product and I have already had other therapists use it so they can see what it does for their hands. The variable settings for time, heat and pressure are great.
This really does the job!
I purchased the hand massager for my husband. He cant keep his hands out of it! Pretty intense! Does a great job! He thinks that it definitely makes his hands feel better!
hand massager:ok but expecteded more
crushes does not massage
I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, and my right hand "acts up" on occasion. This is a great product to use for the aches and pains. Its also very relaxing. I fell asleep with my hand in it. I dont experience the "it hurts" comments that others shared. Plus, I do feel the heat. It could be a little stronger in the heat dept. Overall, Im glad it bought it and I would purchase again.
My wife suffers from a disease that is making her hands curl like claws. Its difficult and painful for her to exercise them to keep them somewhat flexible. This unit sort of "forces movement" which is helping her hands become more flexible and functional. Without using heat the battery life is incredible. The heat function overall could be improved. I would highly recommend this product for anyone with arthritis or any other aliment that affects the hands and fingers.
Fantastic Hand Massager!
I have severely arthritic hands - basal joint arthritis being the worst. This hand massager feels wonderful - I could use it all day long! I typically use it while watching tv, since you still have one hand free to operate remote, use phone, or even use a tablet or computer. My hands feel very relaxed when finished. You have the ability to plug it into an outlet, as well as using 4AA batteries. Ive only had it a week but have been thoroughly impressed so far!
Works great, question the long-term quality
Not too difficult to use. Quit working within 2 days on heat element. Have yet to receive return labels in order to get a replacement. Local stores that carry your products dont carry this one.
how else can you get your hands massaged
I am a musician. After hours of practice my hands are sore and tired. What a relief to get the hand massager going. Instant. Comfortable. Sigh! Just perfect!
Nice gift good product
operating instructions not complete
need explaination on heat levels and pressure levels
need to add diagram and explanation
other than that great gift good product
Great Little Machine
I have been experiencing a painful tingling in my hands, often waking up at night because of it. With one days use of this machine I was able to sleep through the night. And the tingling is much diminished day and night.
I love it!! Thanks, Marsha
i used every day at the beginning. it was great. then used when i got achy. very disappointed on how short its lif is
Love this Hand Compression Massager!
I fractured my wrist in November 2015 and it was taking a long time to heal, this little machine is helping to heal my hand and increase the circulation. My hand feels so much better. I am using the machine once in the morning and two or three times a night.
A great product
My husband just received this massager for a Christmas gift. He used it once and thought his hands were not as
stiff. He also liked the massage effect.
This is easy to use and really does the trick. At first I thought the compression was too much, but since have released pressure as needed. I have never felt anything like this on my hands. I type on my PC a lot, so using this has been very therapeutic for me. No one needs to rub my hands, this machine can take care of that.
Good pressure and heat for relaxing and stretching of the fingers. Using as an ALS patient, really gives relief.
The Hand Massager worked as advertised !
I would recommend this to people wanting a simple method or means to achieve relief from sore aching or stiff joints.
Great product. Good service
great for hand relief.
Good concept, poor execution
Returned the product as it failed to perform as described.
Amazing hand massager
I recently developed arthritic pain in one hand. This device delivers just the right power in working the muscles. I use it every morning.
Superbly Crafted Product
Very therapeutic. Promots circulation. Hand feels great after session.
With 2 arthritic hands, I hope it supplements my oral medications
constant battery life
Helps ease my arthritis
Have arthritis. Eases my left hand (I am a lefty) while I play games on my computer with my right hand.
Works good as all Sharper Image products
Hands Feel Better
We use the product to sooth sore hands from working in the yard, massage a numb hand (from a stroke) for better circulation, and we have a sting instrumentalist who keeps their hands nimble and pain-free using this device. It can easily be used while watching TV or reading and your hands feel pampered and refreshed when the massage cycle is complete.
This works plus it relaxes you
This feels so good it puts me to sleep every night, I wake up when it shuts off
Helps with pain
Great Healing Massage!
I purchased this hand massager for my husband, who has arthritis in his hands. He really loves it, the heat is fabulous. Really helps him!
I do wish it was bigger, his hand barely fits - it would be much better if it came in larger sizes. Please let me know if it does - I did not see that option.
Just got it yesterday, unpacked, put in batteries, powered up--no display. Re-checked directions, re-tried, no display. Decided to go forward and give the thing a try anyway. Feels good and works OK. Persons with large hands may be a little cramped, but for my wifes average womans hand it is just about perfect.
Loved the product, worked as advertised
Very good on the hands, could use more heat control
Used the massager to relieve arthritis in the hands and fingers. Massage and heat provided temporary relief.
Awesome Hand Massager
My hands cramp from hours on the computer at work each day. This hand massager brings relief and allows me to go to bed each night more relaxed. Next best thing to a human massage!
Relief for hard working hands.
Used by a metalsmith for sore hands related to daily working in the studio. Provides a level of comfort Ive not had from topical creams and ointments.
Excellent!! Worth Much More!
Heavy computer use results in muscle cramps and pain in the right hand (commonly called "mouse hand"), but this device works wonders on the pain. Highly recommend it for anyone with similar problems.
helps me regain strength in hand
Excellent comfort device for painful hands
After use your hands are relaxed literally beyond your expectations.
No more sharp pains
Years of work using my hands has left them arthritic and painful. Sharp pains in the finger joints along with spasams was making it difficult to do simple daily tasks. Now I set back and let the hand messager take away the discomfort.
I will buy a 2nd one
Use it in the morning and evening
This massager works great for my osteoarthritis in both of my hands. The heat and pressure combination gives the best releif for my constant hand pain. This product could be improved with a rechargeable battery for travel and monolith without needing a continuous power source.
The massage is just an increase and decrease of pressure, does help but not as much as it could. This is the second unit Ive had and the heat has not worked in either.
Mom loves to work in the yard and her hands take most of the abuse. this new toy is a Godsend!
Bought this for my wife, who works on a computer all day, and she loves it.
He loves it!
My husband broke his wrist and had surgery a year ago. He has had pain in his hand ever since and I massage it every night. I gave him this massager with low expectations. He loves it and uses it every day. He says the massage is strong enough to really make a difference. It probably would not work for someone with very large hands.
I can relax on the couch at the end of my day & use the machine while it sits on a pillow, for a comfortable position. Initially, it felt a little painful, until I discovered that I can adjust the pressure accordingly! NOW, its perfect, & soothing to my aches & pains in my hands! The only thing better, is the massage therapist - human touch!
I love it!!
As a hairdresser for 30 yrs my hands ache and my thumbs get sore. I love this product. I have only had it a couple weeks so I hope it lasts and lasts! I have shown it off to friends and everyone is impressed with it.
I LOVE IT BUT THE CORD WENT AFTER 4 USES....G0T TO CALL BREO I GUESS
Wonderful Relief for my arthritic hands
It works at increasing my mobility of my hands as I have arthritis in my hands. I am learning to reduce the pressure so as not to cause pain and I noticed that my hands were pain free before sleep.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Helps with pain
This product worked wonders on my hand.
This item worked wonders on my hand that had just been operated on.
Hard to find item...
This item was a gift. I have been looking for something like this for some time...
Husband just got it for Christmas and loves it. Fell asleep in the car with it on his hand. Must be good!
I am a Doctor. This was recommended by another Doctor. Give it some time and you will see how great it works!
Good product can recommend
I have RA and this product is wonderful for sore joints and muscles! The heating unit did not work in mine so I returned it and am anxiously awaiting its replacement.
I bought this as a gift for my father who has very bad arthritis in his hands and experiences swelling in his hands often. Since he has received this gift, he has used it almost continuously. He says his hands feel so much better. He is afraid for it to stop working so he is going to buy some to have as replacements in case he wears it out. He can use it anywhere too, because it doesnt have to be plugged in. He doesnt have anything negative to say about it.
This product is very portable
Installation is simple and simple to use.
Easy transaction. It was shipped quickly. I gave this to my husband as a Christmas gift. Now we are fighting over it. I would highly recommend this product.
I love this. Best gift my husband ever gave me!
My husband suffers from a very painful, tight fist due to a brain aneurysm. Although carpal tunnel surgery alieviated the pain somewhat, he was still unable to open two fingers on their own. This product has greatly increased his ability to relax those fingers. At first, he could barely straighten his hand to enter the device. Now, he can keep it there for 15 minutes without pain. He has just begun to use it recently. We are hoping it will speed his rehabilitation, and he will be able to grip a golf club by April!
pain relief for hands
Arthritic hands are painful. The pain can wake me up at night and makes daytime activities more difficult. When my husband gave me the hand massager as a gift, i was touched but a bit skeptical. But after daily use for a month, I can happily say that the device has had a very positive effect on my hands.
The compression does something good for my hands and I am thankful!
My crooked hands
My crooked hands are still crooked, but the pain is disappearing with each use. thank you
Total Hand Pressure Massager
This product is easy to use anywhere in my home. The massage is more of a compression, however the way it compresses all over the hand in different intervals is very soothing. This product is great for over worked hands and made the ache in my hands diminish with only one use. I could have fallen asleep while it massaged my hand. My husband even used it on his arthritic hands and said it worked better than most vibrating massage equipment he had purchased.
I suffer from arthritis, mainly in my finger joints. This has helped tremendously withe the manipulation of the joints. At first (about 30 sec) it seems really tight, which can be adjusted, but it lessens and when finished the joints move easier. Would recommend.
The hand massager is most useful in alleviating arthritis pain and stiffness.
Didnt realize my hands could be relaxed but they were. Helps loosen even smaller muscles and tendons.
This massager is great in terms of the strength of massage it offers. It definitely gives as hard a massage as you want and has both 5 and 10 minute settings. You do need to wear the plastic hand covers to prevent sweating or oils from getting into the unit but thats not a problem at all. The only thing I wish was different is the heat level. It heats, but it takes awhile and the heat is not as warm as I would prefer. Also, important to use the batteries even when plugged into outlet because for some reason it seems to heat up better with all together. It really improves circulation in fingers and palm for those who may have circulation problems and the massage relaxes. I recommend it!
I suffer from carpal tunnel and this is a nice way to relax after a hard day at work. My hand feels great afterwards
Not for FAT hands
My hand felt great after just 5 minutes.Tried to share with my Dad, but he could not insert his large hand into the device.
Excellent Massager for Hands
Use this daily after work. My hands get sore from my duties in the OR. Really seems to help increase the circulation and reduce stiffness. Do not know how I lived without this for so long!
