Medi-Rub Foot Massager: The Best Electric Foot Massager on the Market

Updated on September 6, 2014

Medi-Rub: One foot massage machine that will never let you down!

Do you suffer from neuropathy due to diabetes?

Do you find that the arthritis in your extremities is becoming unbearable?

Do you experience regular foot pain, cramps or muscle tightness?

If you answered "yes" to any one of these questions, the Medi-Rub massager - considered one of the best electric foot massagers available to the public - may be a welcome addition to your home.

If anyone can confirm this, it would be my mother-in-law who suffers from arthritis in her hands and feet, as well as regular inexplicable foot pain that comes and goes without warning. Last year, our family decided to pool our money and purchase the Medi-Rub Foot Massager MMF06 in the hope that it would alleviate the pain she was experiencing. After all, she had begun to fear venturing too far from home.

The result was more than we could have hoped for. Since she started using the Medi-Rub massage machine once every couple of days, she has experienced far fewer episodes of pain and even claims that her symptoms of arthritis have improved substantially. Hearing this, I too was tempted to give it a try, and found that it worked wonders after a long day on my feet at the nursery school where I work.

To learn more about the Medi-Rub foot massage machine and how it can help ease your foot and leg pain, keep on reading!

MMF06 Foot Massager

The Medi-Rub Foot Massager is the innovation of the Medi-Rub Corporation, which has been producing professional massage machines for over 30 years.

These machines are the number one choice amongst doctors, physicians, massage therapists, and chiropractors. Whilst primarily recommended in the treatment of foot/leg pain and poor blood circulation due to diabetic neuropathy, they can also be used for those who suffer from regular muscle cramps, arthritis, leg pain, foot pain, and people who spend much of their time standing or walking.

Using an oscillating foot pad that circulates around the base of your foot, the Medi-Rub foot massager stimulates blood flow, eases muscle and joint pain, reduces swelling and numbness, and invigorates nerve endings. There is also an arch bar which you can use for toe, arch and heel stimulation.

How to use the Medi-Rub foot massager

  1. Place the Medi-Rub foot massager on a sturdy surface, such as a firm carpet, wood floor, tiles, or concrete.
  2. Turn the machine on and set it at a low speed.
  3. Sit down in a comfortable chair and place your feet on the machine. You can choose to use it bare foot, or with socks and shoes on.
  4. Adjust the speed of the machine according to your needs. To massage your shins and calves, rock the machine forward.
  5. Use it for as long as you need. My mother-in-law tends to use it for 10-15 minutes a day.

What is diabetic neuropathy of the feet and legs?

How can the Medi-Rub foot massager help alleviate the symptoms of neuropathy of the feet and legs?

Diabetic neuropathy occurs when ongoing diabetes causes nerve disorders throughout the body. A sufferer may experience sensations of tingling, numbness, or pain primarily in the feet, legs, hands or arms. It is said that the longer a person has diabetes, the more likely he or she is to suffer from nerve damage. In fact, research suggests that around 60% of diabetes sufferers also experience some form of neuropathy in their lifetime. Whilst nobody knows exactly why neuropathy occurs in diabetes patients, high blood glucose, irregular blood fat levels, low levels of insulin, nerve inflammation due to autoimmune factors, neurovascular factors, and external factors such as repetitive strain injury, smoking or alcohol abuse may all contribute.

The Medi-Rub foot massager cannot be considered a cure for diabetic neuropathy, but it remains very effective in providing relief from pain, numbness and other common neuropathy symptoms. It also increases blood circulation to the limbs most affected by diabetic neuropathy.

Looking for a cheaper version?

There are actually two versions of the Medi-Rub foot massager available for purchase. The more expensive version is the one we purchased for my mother-in-law as it had a perfect five star review, but the less expensive version, the Medi-Rub 2000 Plus, has also received extremely high reviews.

On the television show Designing Spaces, Yolanda Holly of the Medi-Rub Corporation demonstrates how both the Medi-Rub foot massager and body massager work to improve blood circulation.
