Q. Are other devices the same?

Other devices have no proven therapeutic benefits and are simply foot massagers. You may find other internet sites claim health benefits in respect to their devices but they are not allowed to do so by law. Only REVITIVE has had independent scientific trials which have tested its efficacy. Visit our product comparison page for further information.
