A Home Use Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of a Hand Held Shower Device in Alleviating the Symptoms Associated with Self-Assessed Joint Discomfort

Independent Clinical Testing, October 2017, WTPUSE3F


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


Fifty-one (51) healthy males and females, 21 – 65 years of age, with self-assessed joint discomfort (at the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, hip or ankle) were enrolled into the 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 affected joint discomfort area (identified at enrollment) using the pulsating water flow to massage this area for 3 to 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 82% of the panel (41 of 50 subjects) began to perceive joint relief within 5 minutes of using the PowerPulse Therapeutic Strength Massage spray.

The massage spray was perceived to be soothing by 90% of the panel (45 of 50).

82% (41 of 50) agreed or strongly agreed that they felt less stiffness in the joints.


This consumer use study demonstrates that regular use of the WaterpikTM PowerPulse Therapeutic Strength Massage spray can quickly deliver relief from self-perceived joint discomfort and reduce perceived stiffness.
