    Hi all,
    Just wondering if anyone has any experience using this Revitive
    foot massager:
    http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4245249.htm?cmpid=APP003
    I have some numbness and stiffness in my feet, I wear toe caps 5 days a week which add the problem.
    If you have used this, or similar, I would appreciate your comments.
    Btw, I spoke to argos customer service and they told me if I took a vat exemption form, it would be discounted at the till.

    Yes I got one and I sent it back. I asked my podiatrist about them and he was not keen. He said that if you have DVT it can cause bits of it to come away. It was enough to put me off even though I don't have DVT.

    Ah ok, did you actually use it? What was the reason for getting it, circulation?
    Thanks for your reply
