@sammydog01 Reading the reviews apparently they are given an extra warranty year for a 5 star review. Mentioned a number of times.
Also what is shaky is one person says “Dr. Mercola” recommends doing this. Umm that is one of the biggest snake oil salesmen/medical scam artists out there. Want to cure your cancer (doesn’t matter what kind) then get from him (cash only as insurance doesn’t pay for it and he doesn’t accept insurance) IV “purified” urine. Finally they did a clinical trial with that and stopped it early because everyone using his snake oil died and those using conventional treatment did not. Oh wait… there’s more. Cure your allergies with urine shots… And what is sad is that desperate people believe this.
@JohnMorris It first gave me an F then said the rating was old and asked if I wanted to recalculate- sure, why not. Looks like fakespot didn’t recognize the new reviews as fake and bumped up the rating. Very sneaky, fitness people.
This irks me more than it should. I went to war on wOOt one day, including with the seller of the product who claimed some bullshit study, with vibration machines (especially the expensive ones). I will let it go this time… But I will still call BULLSHIT.
@djslack …not just disappointed…but pissed off at improper packaging and the general lack of non caring regarding the whole transaction…but apparently I am not the only one who thinks MEH should be returning to it’s roots by the looks of the comments in the last 2 months…
@fastharry@sammydog01 That’s my point. I don’t really care for either of these products. There is someone out there that thinks it’s worth it I’m sure. I do enjoy checking out the meh deal of the day and reading their clever commentary on the products. Whether I like the product or not, I don’t see a point in taking a daily dump on the company.
8 have been sold but there is a problem with the map!!! There are 8 states highlighted, of which two are in black and two are in gray. Must be new math or something - couldn’t possibly be that the map lies
@djslack Maybe in the fly in black but but I’d think the size of Seattle would make up for it in WA. And here I thought this map was done by numbers sold only. Guess not. Or maybe it is just marketing hyperbole wanting to make it look more popular than it is. Kind of like the fake (bribery induced) 5 stars on the reviews…
I cannot comment on this machine but I can comment on vibration machines in general. Wifey has MS and I have heart problems with some thrombosis at times, swelling and cramping. Wifey started using a commercial machine at the back breaking people that helped her MS. Her tingling and weakness improved after using it. Sadly that was only once every 2 weeks and expensive so we bought a vibration machine about twice as large as this one with handles for just a bit more. It only has one type of vibration basically up and down and we use it daily. It has greatly improved the quality of our lives and increases bloodflow which lowers the nerve tingles and cramping issues.
Again I cannot speak for this model but if you have leg tightness, cramps, medical conditions anything with legs and feet, and your doctor is ok with it, I HIGHLY suggest getting a vibration machine. I like that this one has more types of vibration. I don’t like that it doesn’t have handles to hold onto, although if I had the money to purchase it I could easily get around that by installing a handicap bar onto a wall and placing this near it.
Wanted to add that most of these come with little instruction but pay attention to the part about using it. They suggest a break in period where you use it for x minutes the first day, wait a few days then again. People get it, stand on it for an hour multiple times, get sore and feel like crap and return it or toss it in the closet. You have to let your body adapt and it takes a week or so, or did for us, before it helps you instead of beats you.
I was very skeptical but bought to help leg circulation. I waited for several weeks to submit this review but it is amazing! After a 15 minute session using one of the programs my legs feel like jelly. I can feel the results for days my legs get so sore. Fixed my circulation problem and I now use 5 days a week as the basis for my exercise program. For the money, $179, it is a real bargain.
