Wife loves the thing...while it lasted
This is the second one of these she's had...the first wore out within the 'extended warranty' that Harvey Norman offered at that time.... notably the extended warranty period is no longer what it was with the initial purchase.
What wears out is the material under the feet and the pads between the material and moving parts adjacent to the legs - annoyingly, Homedics do not offer replacements for these parts or servicing.
Neither tall nor heavyset she finds the calf massage not particularly effective.
My wife uses the thing every day and it has lasted beyond the warranty by about 6-months.
At $300+ now I wont be rushing to buy another one.
Purchased in October 2018 at Harvey Norman for $249.00.
Foot massage at a fraction of the cost
Let's be honest, it's not that expensive. For the price of a few massages, you can afford this and then pretty much get daily foot and calf massages. Don't be fooled however, it's not as high end as you might think...however, it still does a pretty good job. Check out my full review of this here if you want to see it in action and all the buttons etc.
Purchased in March 2020.
Too expensive for 8 months used.
Plug is very poorly made lasted me 8 months for $300 dollars bought from Harvey Norman .
Such a cheap made too bad it’s really good product only poorly made. From the price tag you’d expect more quality. Very disappointed.

I am happy with this item. It does everything it says on the box. Very relaxing to use. Ideal to use after a long day on my feet at work.
DONT BUY THIS IF YOUR OVER 1m60cm or are old with Osteoporosis
They don't tell you on the box but I am 1m70cm in height so when i sit on this thing it only massages 1/4 of my calf, it simply does not have the height to do the full calf. You can't extend or adjust the machine to do the full calf. This is basically designed for shorter people most probably in China. The Other thing is i bought this for a present for my older parents upon reading the instructions it says consult a doctor if you have Osteoporosis. Reason being, is that the machine compresses the foot and ankle area very hard, hard enough to br...eak a bone if your older or suffering osteoperosis, and you cannot adjust this pressure either!! so basically: 1. you cannot adjust height. not suitable for average to tall people. 2. you cannot adjust pressure. dangerous to people suffering Osteoporosis or elderly 3. The metal plates crush your ankle area. 4. The vibrating mechanism is so loud that its like a jack hammer which destroys any relaxation you can have. 5. the foot vibrating mechanism does the front of the foot but does not massage the ball heal unless you push down hard to get to the hard to reach section. I tried to return this to Harvey Norman and they refused to refund it because the box was open, Worst customer service, I will never shop there again. I didn't get a chance to try this at their ultimo store because they didn't have any on display. So basically i used this once. and now sits in the corner.
Questions & Answers
Does anyone know of any tricks to get the kneading function working again? The vibration and heat works and the select massage button lights up, but no massage. 6 months out of warranty (of course). Thanks in advance!
Has anyone had the issue of the unit just stopping - actually not being able to turn back on?Power supply appears ok but when switched on nothing livens up at all.
Yes my unit does the same. You have to jiggle around with the power connection and it may or may not work. Happened about 1.5 years after owning product out of warranty - figures.
