I think a massage may be just as useful :). The problem is that the effects of these things are temporary. However, it is definitely better for the health of your foot (especially for diabetics) to have good circulation at least some of the time, than none of the time! I haven't seen one of these machines before, so it's pretty interesting. I have one of those rice bags that I heat up and rest my feet on when I am at home--I absolutely love them!

I don't use machines but I'm known for always moving my feet when I'm seated, esp when in the car (not driving of course :) ) when on a trip. It makes me feel better.

Compression stockings are helpful for more of a long time help with circulation in the legs but in the summer that is hard to do so I try to move them as much as I can and massage them.
