Therabody is the manufacturer of the Theragun. If you’ve ever tried one, you’ll know that it’s a convincingly effective way to return overworked or otherwise under-trained muscles to their prime. The Theragun is a lightweight, perfectly balanced machine with multiple heads to sort hard or sensitive muscles as needed. There are updates to two of the popular models, which we’ll get to in a moment, but it’s the third headlining product that marks a real departure for the company.
SmartGoggles is the name and it’s a face mask designed to help you sleep better. It’s designed to “relieve facial tension, relieve headaches, and relax your body and mind to prepare for sleep.” Which sounds pretty cool. A mode is even claimed to be scientifically proven to slow your heart rate with a personalized experience. There are also settings that use heat, vibration, and massage to help you relax. That’s Theragun for your eyes. The SmartGoggles retail for $199.
It seems that SmartGoggles are just the beginning. The company also announced a sound therapy called TheraMind that works with SmartGoggles to enhance your relaxation.
The new Theragun PRO takes proven technology from a percussive therapy device and improves it, the company says, with a new motor that’s 20% quieter than before and includes a color OLED display (it retails for $599).
And later in autumn, Theragun mini will be updated. This is the super-portable version of the Theragun, small enough to slip into your gym bag or travel luggage. It is 20% smaller and 30% lighter than the previous model. It’s a great driveway for trying out Therabody machines, which cost $199.
there is more Therabody announced a knee device for $ 399 that offers hot and cold vibrations (RecoveryTherm Hot & Cold Vibration Knee) for pain relief and, for example, to optimize recovery. And a wearable device with heat and vibration for back pain (RecoveryTherm Hot Vibration Back & Core, $249). Plus Theracup, which combines traditional cupping with new technology. And get this, a zero-gravity lounger for a deep state of relaxation.
Here’s the thing, this might sound like unsafe technology in the hands of many companies. But Therabody products are well made, extremely helpful and reliable. So this line of new stuff sounds very exciting.
