The drive unit which powers the percussion massager is powerful enough to deliver a continuous, rapid and penetrating motion know as tapotement.

The level of massage can be altered either via the use of changeable heads or by amending the speed control selector. The speed can be altered between 20 and 40 pulses / second.
