Conclusion:

This is by far the best massage tool I have ever used. I loved it so much I had to restrain myself from giving an outlandishly glorified review. However I will admit the caveat to this is the fact I did have forearm pain prior to using the Armaid. In saying that since the Armaid fixed my issue, I have been using it every few days for regular maintenance and it’s does a phenomenal job of relieving any tension or tightness.

If you suffer from RSI, sore elbows or painful hands, fingers or forearms, then my advice is give this a try. I don’t think you will be disappointed. I believe in the Armaid so much it is the first time we here at The Rx Review have ever given a perfect score.

The Armaid impressed me from the moment I saw it. It is a great tool for assisting with the management of soft-tissue injuries to the arm. With all of the hype over foam rolling, it is a wonder that it took this long for someone to address the upper extremity, but the Armaid is more than just a "foam-roller" for the arm; it is also the athletic trainer's best friend for dealing with those pesky trigger points! I recommend the Armaid for anyone looking for a better alternative to managing injuries to the elbow and forearm. Great tool, totally unique and effective. I highly recommend Armaid to manage injuries to the elbow and forearm. Armaid is an Athletic Trainers' best friend to free up trigger points and regain ROM anywhere in the arm. Paul J. Culina, M.Ed., LATC, Head Athletic Trainer, University of Maine Orono

Armaid is absolutely the most effective device I have ever used for the treatment of tendonitis and injuries to the arm ... and it works fast. Pitchers love it! Our batting practice pitchers were throwing every day and developed tight and sore areas in their arms and elbows. I gave an Armaid to each pitcher and it worked wonders. Using Armaid, they were able to throw the rest of the season with no further problems. Todd Hutcheson, Former Head Trainer, San Diego Padres

When I first saw the Armaid I laughed at its awkward shape. It was no laughing matter when I put it to the test. I was able to release old trigger points in my forearm that have been frozen for years. I train hard, sometimes to the point of breaking. In the seventeen years that I have been a professional rock climber, I have never found a more perfect device to help combat the harsh work load I put my forearms through. It only took one time using this funny looking device and I was hooked. I now use Armaid every time after my training sessions and also make my 40+ students use it after I train them to near failure. I'm a hard critic about many sports related products, ask anyone that knows me. I love this Armaid device and I will use it till the day I can't pick it up. Christopher Joseph Sierzant, Professional Rock Climber

I have been a Physical Therapist for over 20 years and a rock climber for nearly 10 years. In my job I do a lot of manual therapy and outside of work, I climb 2-3 days per week. Therefore, my hands and arms get some heavy duty and repetitive use without much rest or recovery. I've had bouts of elbow tendonitis that have taken months to get rid of. To assist with the management of pain and tightness I have often sought treatment by licensed massage therapists because soft tissue mobilization has been necessary in the recovery process. Unfortunately, few of us can afford to see a massage therapist as frequently as would be ideal. I recently had the fortunate opportunity to try the Armaid. I had been scoping out other similar products with the potential of purchasing one to help me get some relief in between trips to a therapist. I have used the Armaid consistently for the past couple weeks and have been very impressed! It is very well designed ergonomically, is easy to use and does what it claims to do. It is adjustable for all sizes of arms, is versatile and portable (which is excellent for bringing to the gym or the crag to get rid of the "pump" in between climbs !) Since the person using it is in control of the amount of pressure applied, and the angle of the pressure, it provides individualized soft tissue mobilization to help release whatever is currently painful and tight throughout the entire arm and hand. The Armaid allows for 2 types of massage: Circulatory-which helps remove lactic acid build up and gets the blood moving more efficiently thru the arm; and the Trigger Point massage helps release deep or superficial trigger points by applying sustained pressure as you move the arm in a variety of angles to stretch the muscles, tendons and fascia in oblique planes. If general tightness and trigger points can be addressed in this way on a regular basis, it can help to prevent tendonitis from developing, as well as treat existing tendonitis and muscle pain. Plus, it feels really good to use it! I am pleased to now own the Armaid and will highly recommend it to my patients and fellow climbers! I've been bringing my Armaid into the climbing gym and people there always ask about it. I let them try it and they all say it feels really good. Many have expressed interest in buying one. I've highly recommended it. Tami Deitzer, Physical Therapist and Rock Climber

Can't thank you enough for the Armaid. The device is durable and well built. It's a great concept and has great range of movement. The DVD was well put together, simple and easy to watch.  I've had severe tendonitis in both elbows but something that surprised me was the tendon attaching my forearm muscle through my wrist was just as sore as my elbow. I didn't notice it until I was using the recommended technique of looking for sore spots. The pain has been reduced about 80%. I think I'm addicted to using Armaid after climbing just for a nice forearm massage because it feels so damn good.Ray Ellington, Red River Gorge, Kentucky

I am a 39 year old mid-12 climber. I partially tore my right bicep which hadn't fully healed before I started back with my normal training and climbing routine. When I got into a cycle of partial recovery and re-injury, I sought professional help to rehab my arm. The physical therapist I visited recommended I try Armaid. Apparently, it is common (if ironic) for massage therapists to develop chronic forearm issues. She saw a parallel to climbing injuries. I bought an Armaid out of the pure frustration; I couldn't climb. I was blown away by the results. I found more knots and sore spots in my forearms and elbows than I could have imagined. I used Armaid to break-up the scar tissue in my right bicep and released all the muscle tension around my elbows. Armaid allowed me to start training and climbing again. Armaid enabled me to return and flash 5.12b's. Peter Jones, Chicago

Your product has a place in the health care world. My players did not necessarily use it for extended periods of time, probably because they have plenty of hands on treatment in my training room. I think this product would be perfect for outpatient clinics, physical therapy clinics, and/or occupational therapy clinics; it would be a good tool to supplement their therapy. Paul Lessard, Head Trainer, Boston Red Sox

I am the pitching coach at the University of California at San Diego and also the batting practice pitcher for the San Diego Padres for the past 25 years. I say this to give a little bit of credibility for letting you know how much I use your product.

When throwing batting practice, I throw approximately 150-200 pitches. I do this for seven to thirteen days in a row. Last September, I was introduced to Armaid by Todd Hutcheson, head Trainer for the Padres. From the first time I used Armaid I could feel the difference. It was like a massage and it loosened up my arm before I went onto the field. I used it for the rest of the season and did not experience the usual tight and sore tendonitis condition that usually occurs. I have since introduced it to other ball players who have had similar positive results.

I am 53 years old and still throw all year long. Thanks to Armaid, it has become much, much easier. Jim Allen, University of California at San Diego, Former Coach

After years of competition, the pain in my arm and wrist forced me to give up motorcross racing and my weight training. I was devastated. Then I discovered Armaid. I'm simply amazed with the results; I'm back to racing again and lifting with no pain. Dan Weinberg

Armaid works! Persistent forearm pain caused by years of hard use has been greatly reduced after only weeks of therapy. I was skeptical at first, chronic pain and fatigue had troubled my right arm for some time. Sports and hobbies had taken their toll, and as I approached 40 years of age many had suggested that I give up many of the activities that I love. Skiing, dirt bike riding, tennis, fishing all put strain on hands, wrist and elbows. Some more sedentary pursuits such as gardening, playing guitar or restoring classic cars seemed to cause the greatest discomfort from the repetitive motions they involve. I found I was doing more and more with my left hand to compensate for loss of strength and stamina in my right hand. Doctors recommended taking anti-inflammatories and chiropractors said only years of treatment would help.

By the second week of Armaid therapy the results we noticeable. I was able to enjoy my activities for longer periods before fatigue, and felt less stiffness the day after. A side benefit for me was the release of stored tensions, and the stress reducing feeling of "calm" this product provides. Going through life with painful, knotted-up muscles made me feel old and tired. It is hard to describe the relief of being without much of the pain that I had come to accept as an inevitable part of aging.

Thank you Armaid, I have and will continue to recommend your product to my friends and other people in need. Jeff Archer

I'm writing this letter to you to let you know how much your product helped my 11 year old son, David Scott. He plays in a very competitive baseball league. He was pitching for his team and during his time on the mound he strained the tendons on the outer portion of his elbow. We went thought all the normal procedures such as ice, magnetic wraps, heat and finally rest with little results. When we used Armaid was when we had the most significant improvement to his elbow. We used the product for twenty minutes at a time 3 times a day. Within 4-5 days David Scott was back on the field throwing with no pain. Thank you for the help Armaid provided.Scott Baker

I am a full time Personal Trainer and Coach working out of Washington DC. In my own training, I enjoy a variety of activities - from Olympic lifting and Powerlifting, to Acrobatics and Grip Training. All of these things take their toll on my hands, wrists, and forearms. I've used lacrosse balls to roll out problem areas before, but I've found the Armaid is able to offer much more precise pressure and control. The device looks a little crazy, but it works!

Awesome product! If you had a SholderAide, that would be increase your awesomeness factor 10x :) LegAide too. - James Stewart, Fort Worth, Texas Cross Fit Enthusiast

I never write reviews but I just wanted to say that it's great to purchase a product that is so easy to use and extremely effective! I'm a rock climber of 14 years and am always fighting the typical bouts of debilitating tendonitis. Typically the only cure would be long periods of rest until full recovery. Using the Armaid has taught me how to easily identify my trigger points and work them out. I've been able to carry a decent training load by being proactive with the Armaid before and after climbing and on active recovery days. This by far is one of the best tools a serious climber can add to the arsenal and has improved my understanding of the physiology of muscle use, overuse, and recovery! Thank You!

On a side note: I also have two kids with one being 8 months old. My wife has developed De Quervain syndrome in both arms from the repetitive motions of holding a baby. She has found solid relief using the Armaid. I also brought it to work and already my boss ordered one for his wife's Carpel Tunnel and for him to use during days of intensive typing.

Thanks again for making a reliable, honest tool that everyone can benefit from. Josh Hepler, Rock Climber, Christiansburg, VA
