Design and Features
The FitRx gun is a lightweight handheld device with an ergonomic grip for easy handling. It works alongside heat or cold therapy to treat various muscle disorders, including sciatica and tendonitis.
The strength of the massage can be adjusted by changing the frequency of use or by using different attachments.
The device is operated by a powerful 400-watt motor, safe for use on all skin types.
The FitRx gun also comes with an LCD screen that displays the intensity of each massage mode and provides visual feedback throughout treatment. Activation can be done via a touch button located at the back or top of the unit.
The FitRx massager is designed to administer a fast, full-body massage. It uses compression with percussion to deliver up to 10 lbs of pressure per square inch (PSI) and stimulate blood flow, improving range of motion and relieving spasms in the back muscles. This device has been clinically tested for effectiveness.
In a 2010 study published in the Journal of Manual & Manipulative Therapy, researchers found that the percussive massage gun effectively relieves upper back pain and improves functional performance, and has a good safety profile for use by physiotherapists.
The therapy attachments are designed to address specific regions of the body. For example, the lower back attachment comes with two uniquely shaped rubber heads that target areas around the lumbar spine and surrounding muscles. The massage head is pretty large and covers a wide area.
The shape of this soft Head makes it easy to maneuver over your shoulders, neck, and back without applying too much pressure on one specific area.
The battery is Lithium-ion with an approximate working time of 75 minutes on a full charge that is easily accessible by opening the battery compartment.
Four attachments for targeting different areas of the body. The massage head is securely attached to a self-centering drive shaft that delivers up to 10 lbs of pressure on each square inch (PSI)
Single motor design provides consistent power throughout the entire surface area. This helps ensure deep tissue massage in all directions, not just side to side and up and down, as with most massage heads.
The ergonomic handle is comfortable in hand and has a removable rubber grip for easy cleaning. The trigger switch is located in the gun’s back, which helped minimize accidental activation during testing (an important safety feature).
Built-in LCD promotes ease of use by alerting you to speed and intensity settings and showing a timer that lets you know when the massage is complete.
Requires 4 AA batteries. The gun comes with a battery charger, 8 AA batteries (4 to operate the unit and four spares), and an instruction manual.
Dual: soothes the neck and spine areas.
Flat Head: for targeting specific body parts.
Round Head: to apply a soothing stroke over the full-back and shoulders or kneading action on the neck.
Precision Head: to pinpoint tighter muscles within targeted areas of tension.
Pressure Settings: Variable from 1200 RPM (relaxed comfort) to 3600 RPM (vigorous massage). The speed is easily adjusted and can be turned on or off with a simple power button push.
Ease of Use
The FitRx massage gun is easy to use. It comes fully assembled in an attractive box that opens up to reveal the device, its user manual, and two batteries (one already installed in the unit).
Attachments can be attached to the motor with a twist of the wrist. Users should read and understand their specific instructions before use (e.g., never apply pressure directly on the skin, use only attachments supplied by the manufacturer, etc.).
As with any other massaging device or appliance, it is essential to follow all safety guidelines to avoid personal injury.
The device operates with a relatively low level of noise.
Approximately $65.00 and available on Amazon (this includes Dual massage head, flat Head, precision head, and round).
