Hands up if you’ve ever had painful feet. Yep, same here. We all get pain in the feet at some time or another, because we walk around a lot. That’s good of course, but it can lead to problems if we’re wearing unsuitable shoes or staying on our feet for too many harsh, unyielding hours. Properly fitting footwear can help of course, but there’s also another solution it seems.
This LED Foot Pain Reliever uses infra-red heat from LEDs to stimulate the blood circulation and ‘loosen muscles’ in the feet. Sounds awesome. Apparently the light from the unit, which is a special design, penetrates deep into the tissue, unlike mere heating pads.
The thing comes with a timer which shuts off after 20 minutes, presumably to avoid toasting your tootsies to a crisp, and it can help to relieve the soreness that comes from plantar fasciitis, neuroma and tendonitis. Sounds wonderfully technical, but we’ll need some convincing at the price of $249.95. Sometimes just a nice bucket of warm water does the trick for us.
