Lunix Cordless Electric Hand Massager Review
Features & Functions
The first aspect that sets the Lunix LX3 apart from the rest is the technology adopted.
You see, the standard formula employs across most (if not all) hand massagers is the Air Pressure + Heat Compression combination. This is what goes behind the massages you receive from a good hand massager.
The LX3 is no exception, however, it goes a step further by engineering vibration modes into its mechanism. This makes all the difference as such an addition offers you the closest feeling to a REAL hand massage.
To a very great extent, this is what draws people to the LX3 - because of the human-like sensation they receive. The ergonomic hand position design certainly aids to that.
But yes, back to the Air Pressure + Heat Compression combination.
Air Pressure + Heat Compression
Through the use of airbags, the palm, hand, wrist and all fingers are squeezed and compressed by the hundreds and thousands of bumps set inside.
Various acupressure points are being stretched and straightened out during the process, allowing your hands to get the thorough stimulation it requires.
To be the best hand massager, heat is an indispensable element. For this one here, it provides a gentle warmth around 104°F - the optimum temperature found to offer the best heat therapy to the human body.
Such incorporation of heat helps accelerates blood flow, which then enables more oxygen to be delivered to the problematic areas. What this does is that it quickens the healing process, enhancing the effectiveness of the hand massage.
This is why hand massagers are able to aid in hand symptoms like arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome or the common cold hands / stiff fingers problems.
It is not just some baseless claims though. Over 300 physical hand therapy patients have actually tested the LX3, all having successfully experienced a significant DECREASE in arthritis pain as well as FASTER recovery after carpal tunnel surgery.
Modes and Intensity
It is worthy to note that the Lunix LX3 is equipped with 6 massage programs. That is the most on the market to date.
Likewise, it also offers 6 intensity levels (again, the most the market has available nowadays) for you to customize a setting that best suits your needs and requirements.
As mentioned above, it also comes with the Vibration method that no other model is equipped with, of which there are also 2 modes for you to choose from.
Each massage sessions last 15 minutes, with the device switching off automatically when time is up.
This provides an additional layer of safety feature but really, you have nothing to worry about with this FDA-approved massage device.
Compared to other models, you can see that the Lunix LX3 has a longer body design.
13.38 inches to be exact. The device is therefore able to envelop the entire hand from palm to wrist and even beyond it. As opposed to some others which may not cover the whole of the hand or they do not go to the wrist which some may like to get massaged as well.
This is no doubt one of its bestselling feature. To date, the other model that is comparable in this aspect is the Prourbier. You can check out it here if you'd like to compare between the two.
The interior is made of soft cushion to ensure 100% comfort but do note that there may be a tingling feeling. This is completely normal.
You may also notice these little dimples forming after a session with the LX3 - again, this is 100% normal.
It just goes to show the efficiency of the kneading provided by the massager across the distribution of acupuncture points on the hand.
You will be pleased to find that the Lunix LX3 adopts a cordless design. This gives it the portability many desire as you'd want to be able to have a hand massage any time, anywhere if possible.
Adding to the portability aspect is its compact design which allows you to even bring it aboard with you when you go travelling.
Because you know, the pain doesn't stop just because you're on vacation if you're suffering from ailments like rheumatoid arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome.
A USB charging cable is provided for you to recharge the device when it runs out of battery.
You may use a 5V plug to charge it, however, we'd advise using the cable provided to ensure longevity of the device.
We like how the LX3 has an intuitive display. If you compare it with the others, you can see that its display is much bigger so you can easily see what settings you're on.
You see, a hand massager may not be the easiest to use without a clear and step-by-step user manual.
This intuitive display allows you to choose the ideal massage compression level easily so that you may not even need the manual.
Now this is not something offered in every hand massager but the LX3 also includes a finger massager in its package.
What this little guy here does is that it helps with blood circulation, brain activity and sense of touch.
This is probably one of the earliest kind of massager related to the hands in any way, a roller massage that targets at the pressure points of the fingers to soothe and relax.
Given that the LX3 is not in any way priced higher than other competitors, to have an extra massage equipment included in the package is no doubt a thoughtful consideration that is highly appreciated.

Things to Note
Having said that, there are certainly aspects that we think the Linux can improve on.
For one, there could be more heat settings.
As mentioned above, it only has one heat level. Whilst this is not something too out-of-the-ordinary (considering many other models offer the same thing), you get hand massagers like this (or this) that come with up to 3 settings.
Comparatively, this may make the Linux slightly inferior in this aspect. Obviously, more variety means giving users more options and that, is always a good thing.
We wouldn't say it is a deal breaker in any way though certainly. After all, the temperature setting inputted is the optimum for the human body in terms of therapeutic purposes. But yes, this may be something you'd want to keep in mind about.
You should, by now, understand where we are coming from when we say the Lunix LX3 Cordless Electric Hand Massager is best hand massager on the market.
