Automatic Shut Off
Thank you for purchasing Mat Massager, HoMedics’ portable 5-motor,
full-body massager. This, like all of HoMedics’ products, is built with
high-quality craftsmanship and comes backed by our two-year limited
warranty. Mat Massager is guaranteed to provide you soothing massage relief for years to come.
We’ve designed Mat Massager for convenience and safety. As a special
precaution against falling asleep while using the unit, or leaving the unit
on while it’s still in operation, we’ve programmed it to automatically
stop massaging 15 minutes after receiving your last command.
To reactivate Mat Massager, simply press any button. Any time you
change massage functions, the timer will reset. This special feature
should not be considered as a substitute for OFF. Always remember
to turn your unit off when not in use.
HoMedics is dedicated to bringing you better health through innovation. However, you should never substitute this, or any other manufacturer’s massager, for professional medical attention. Persistent ailments
and symptoms could indicate a more serious condition.
