Sore, fatigued muscles are a part of life for active people. At a certain point you realize that post-activity stiffness is sometimes the price you pay for using your body. But as great as a long, hot bath feels to those overworked muscles, a faster recovery would give you more time to do what you love, physically-speaking.
It has been well established that high-penetrating vibrations that trigger myofascial release can enhance the body’s ability to regenerate itself and shorten the recovery cycle. The MyoStorm Meteor enhances this by adding heat to the mix.
- Vibration – 3 settings
- Self-heating – 120ºF
- USB rechargeable – 2 hrs
The Li-polymer battery (2600 mAh) takes 2 hours to fully charge, but lasts for 90 minutes at the highest vibration setting + heat (120ºF).
The controls are recessed and require a firm press to activate, so there is little chance of the Meteor turning on accidentally packed away or in transport. Also, the heating function can only be selected after the device had been switched on…a nice safety measure.
The shell of the Meteor can support up to 300 lbs of weight, enough even for NFL linemen.
There are three different vibration settings and one heat setting, selectable by repeatedly pressing the control. There is button for vibration and a button for heat. On our first try, it took about 15 minutes for the Meteor to reach 120ºF. While not a problem, it is just a point to note when planning the recovery protocol.
We’ll compare the MyoStorm to the two other spherical tension relievers we have in house and see how they compare.
No, it’s not a really a fair fight, but hey…you know the saying, “…don’t bring cold balls to a massage-off!” Yeah, we made that up.
