No, Thumper does not pinch when used correctly. Do not press down, stroke, or dig with additional weight.
Do not use oils or lotions with Thumper. The oil or lotion may chemically react with the plastic and cause deterioration.
No. Thumper is maintenance free, constructed with permanently lubricated, sealed ball bearings. No additional lubrication is necessary.
Thumper is designed for intermittent use, 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off. Thumper warms up as it runs, and it is normal for the plastic shell or housing to get warm. If the temperature does exceed normal limits, Temperature Overload Protection may activate, shutting the machine down. You will need to let it cool before continuing use.
If the external surfaces become soiled, wipe clean with a cloth dampened with a mild soap.
Thumper has very little ‘kickback’ to the operator.
For sensitive areas, place a folded towel between Thumper and the area being massaged.
The use of quality components, hand made units, and strict quality control are some of the reasons why Thumper is a premium price product.
