WaterpikTM PowerPulse Therapeutic Strength Massage: Helps to Soothe Muscle Tension

A Home Use Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of a Shower Device in Alleviating the Symptoms Associated with Self-Assessed Muscle Tension

Independent Clinical Testing, October 2017, WTPUSE4F


To determine the effectiveness of the WaterpikTM PowerPulse Massage device in alleviating the symptoms associated with self-assessed muscle tension when used under typical home-use conditions. This device provides a proprietary pulsating massage.


Fifty-three (53) healthy male and female subjects, 21-65 years of age, experiencing self-assessed muscle tension (at the neck, shoulders, lower back, or calf) were enrolled in this study. Subjects were issued the WaterpikTM PowerPulse Shower Head and instructed to use it on the affected area every day for 14 days.

Subjects set the spray mode to PowerPulse Massage and pointed the Therapeutic Strength Massage on the targeted muscle groups where muscle tension was experienced (identified at enrollment) using the pulsating water flow to massage the affected area for 2-5 minutes. Subjects were given a daily diary to record use of the PowerPulse shower head and any comments. At the end of the use period, they returned to the test facility to complete a self-perception questionnaire.


Results from the questionnaire indicated 94% of the panel (50 of 53 subjects) began to perceive muscle tension relief within just 2 minutes and up to 5 minutes of using the PowerPulse Therapeutic Strength Massage spray.

85% (45 of 53 subjects) agreed or strongly agreed that they felt less stiffness in their muscles after using the PowerPulse Therapeutic Strength Massage spray.

83% (44 of 53 subjects) perceived their muscles felt relaxed after using the PowerPulse Therapeutic Strength Massage spray.


This consumer use study demonstrates that regular use of the WaterpikTM PowerPulse Therapeutic Strength Massage spray helps to soothe muscle tension, quickly deliver relief from self-perceived muscle tension, and reduce stiffness.
