The chiropractor I worked for owned one, once I left I knew I needed one for myself. Its worth every penny! Its the perfect remedy after a long day at work and savior for those awful knots. I use it on myself after the gym to soothe sore muscles but also enjoy a massage from my husband.
Its a pretty sturdy piece of equipment, it looks and feel powerful and meant to last. A bit heavy, my 7 year old sister couldnt hold it properly while giving me a massage. It does require some muscle to hold and maneuver it for a proper massage with 1 hand.
I love all the different attachments, they all have their use, e.g. some give a more dull massage while "the bullet" attachment will get down to deep tissue. Battery is long lasting, I havent had the need to charge often. 100% recommend!
The Hyperice Hypervolt is a cordless vibration massage device, used in Vibration Therapy. If you've ever visited a Physical Therapist, you've probably seen the Hypervolt or Theragun. It works like a mini jack-hammer to help loosen tight muscles and reduce soreness from training sessions. The Hypervolt is cordless, compact and portable.
When you first turn it on, what jumps out is the lack of noise. If you have been around other devices such as the Theragun, which is very NOISY this is like night and day. One feature I really like is that it has 4 LED lights that indicate the amount of charge in the battery, which is rated for about 3 hours of continuous use on a full charge.
The Hypervolt also has 3 different speed settings, allowing you to adjust the intensity of the massage. It's also light, so you can use it with 1 hand, but has enough mass that you don't feel like you have to push into it to penetrate down to the muscle.
So does it work? In a word, yes. Ironically, I broke my hip in a mtb accident almost 2 months ago, and for the first time in my life I just started Physical Therapy. My Physical Therapist uses the Hyperice on during our sessions. He also has the Theragun but prefers the Hyperice as he can converse with his patients while using it!
But it's not just my saying I feel good after using it. There are also studies which show the many benefits of Vibration Therapy. In a study called “To Compare the Effect of Vibration Therapy and Massage in Prevention of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS)” the result was that muscle soreness was reported to be significantly less for the experimental (vibration and massage) group as compared to the control group at 24, 48, and 72 hours of post-exercise.
According to an article on Healthline, “When the vibrations are transmitted to your body, they cause your muscles to contract and relax. Certain types of vibrations may also cause your body to produce more osteoblasts. These are cells that produce bone.” Benefits of vibration therapy include an increase in bone density, reduced back pain, improved blood circulation, increase in muscle mass, and more.
Even if you're not an elite athlete, if any of those benefits sound good to you, then I recommend that you check out the Hypervice Hypervolt.
This massage gun is not a disappointment. It works wonders, has a long battery life, decent power but also light enough so that your wrists don't suffer any pain from holding on to it. The lights on it look pretty cool as well as being functional. Using this as a tool to relax and warm up muscles before running plus using it as a tool for recovery has been a successful exercise in our family.
