Useful but poor design,
This review is from: HoMedics FC-100 Leg and Foot Massager (Personal Care)
I bought this equipment a few weeks ago, and I have used it quite a few times. It's cyclo massage is very good, but its kneading is as much. The lack of a comprehensive manual is a bit odd for a helath equipment, and it's foot base is very small. I have very small feet, but I can only fit in 3/4 of the way, which means that I have to keep my feet shifting to get them done. The lack of ventilation on the equipment limits the its usage to 15 minutes - very sad. In addition, since it's covered by cloth, to use it with bare feet, means you have cleaning problems. So I wear clean socks every time I use it. I also cover it with a towel to kep the dust away.
This machine could have very useful for individuals who experience poor circulation, ageing feet, and the like, but it requires better dessign thoughts, than have been put into it. In addition, when you stop the machine, your feet could be left squizeed into the base, because of lack of sensors, etc. On the whole, however, I'm able to use it for my needs, but lesser knowledgeable persons might not benefit from it as much. (I'm an rush, so if you spot spelling typos, please excuse me)
