Personal Massager impressions

Thu Oct 25, 2001 - 11:00 PM EDT - By James Hromadka


Earlier this month, Raynet Technologies introduced the Personal Massager Springboard module, quite possibly the most unique handheld computer accessory ever created. The Personal Massager allows Visor owners to enjoy a stimulating muscle workout at any time.

The full review will come in the next few weeks, but here are some impressions for now. The module is slightly thicker than a standard-size module but fits fine in my Vaja Prism case. There are three types of massages: chopping, squeezing, and tapping. There are also specific workouts programmed for the back, shoulders, and legs.

The massage can be intensified using the hardware buttons. The range is from 0-150, but I couldn't get it much higher than 70 before my skin started shaking! The massage felt great; I'm enjoying one now as I write this article. The massage pads have a gummy surface and adhere to the skin. They are replaceable.

As someone in the forums noted, the Personal Massager is not to be used on certain parts of the body. :) My wife tried a lower-back massage and really liked it. This will definitely be one of the modules that I take with me to Comdex next month. Now to get back to that massage. Ahhhhh.....
