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
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!
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.
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.
Review of hand massager
Aids my husbands hands after long day on computer.
Good hand pressure massage
Had decent pressure, but too painful for extreme arthritis sufferer.
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.
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.
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
Hands-down a HIT!
Christmas present for my wife...shes very pleased with the massager. Too soon to comment on battery life.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Worth the money
Great to relive hand cramps could use a longer rolling feature during the longer times massages.
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.
Very pleased with product
To help my mother massage her hand after her stroke
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.
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!
Great for stiff hands
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.
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 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 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!
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.
Works great, has helped with pain Im having in my hands
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 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
My husband carries this massager around the house with him. Best gift I ever bought him.
good at presure circulation, not massage
nice for relaxing pressure. but no real massage rubbing felt. very little heat or warmth felt.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
I like it so far
I having been using for 1 week or so and my hands feel better overall. I like it!
Very relaxing, therapeutic
Helps with soreness after a long hard day.
Needs to be larger
The opening should be larger, this would allow the entire hand to benefit from the massage
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.
It really works, and works well!
I am a massage therapist, and I offer it to my clients and they love it!
Have arthritis and pain in hands works great so far.
Wife types all day and this helps relieve stress and pain in her hands
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
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.
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
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.
i used every day at the beginning. it was great. then used when i got achy. very disappointed on how short its lif is
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
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.
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.
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.
Great product. Good service
great for hand relief.
Simple to use. Soothing for my hands
Good concept, poor execution
Returned the product as it failed to perform as described.
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 -
Superbly Crafted Product
Very therapeutic. Promots circulation. Hand feels great after session.
relaxing while reading a book
its make for a great gift
like the Product
Product used to relive hand stiffness
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.
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.
Good for poor circulation in hands. It provides gentle to firm massaqge. The infrared heat setting is not noticeable to most people.
Works good as all Sharper Image products
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.
The massager feels good on aching hands.
The massager does well on aching hands although it could use a little more heat.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
I use it all the time!
It is a little small for my hand
Loved the product, worked as advertised
Very good on the hands, could use more heat control
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.
Used the massager to relieve arthritis in the hands and fingers. Massage and heat provided temporary relief.
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.
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.
helps me regain strength in hand
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!!!!
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.
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.
Good soothing hand massage
Great hand massage whenever hands feel tired or painful
I will buy a 2nd one
Use it in the morning and evening
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.
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.
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.
This product worked wonders on my hand.
This item worked wonders on my hand that had just been operated on.
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.
Hard to find item...
This item was a gift. I have been looking for something like this for some time...
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.
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!
Product works as described
This product has good pressure on the hand, but does not give pulsating pressure.
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.
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.
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 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.
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!
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.
My crooked hands
My crooked hands are still crooked, but the pain is disappearing with each use. thank you
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!
does the job
bought this as a gift for my wife who works with her hands. The air pressure works great but you dont feel much heat.
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.
Hope it will reduce the pain in my hands.
The hand massager is most useful in alleviating arthritis pain and stiffness.
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.
Didnt realize my hands could be relaxed but they were. Helps loosen even smaller muscles and tendons.
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!
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!
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.
I suffer from carpal tunnel and this is a nice way to relax after a hard day at work. My hand feels great afterwards
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
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!
