Armaid is a therapeutic self-administered massage device for relaxing, releasing and stretching the tissues of the forearm and hand. Armaid can help to relieve the pain and discomfort of computer-related Repetitive Strain Injuries, muscle tension, carpal tunnel syndrome, golfer's elbow, tennis elbow, tendonitis, de Quervain's tenosynovitis, and lymphedema.
Armaid uses a patented lever design to mimic the techniques of professional mobility massage, and puts the user in control of the pressure and direction of the massage stroke. The device can be customized with four, interchangeable rollers of varying densities, allowing the user to deliver just the right amount of pressure— from focused, intense release of muscles and fascia, to gentle enhancement of circulation.
Armaid is sturdy, durable and lightweight. It is designed to be used in a seated position, with the device resting freely on the thigh, or strapped to the thigh for additional stability.
Note: Leg Strap accessory is included with the Armaid Package and the Armaid Complete only. Otherwise sold separately.
Helps to Improve Circulation
- Armaid stretches and releases muscle tissue, helping to improve blood flow throughout the forearm, wrist and hand.
Helps to Release Trigger Points
- Armaid applies targeted pressure, helping to release the painful, knotted muscle fibres known as trigger points.
Helps to Loosen Muscles
- Can be used for targeted, pre-event loosening and warm-up of muscles in the arms.
