How Does It Work?

Yes, you’re suffering from fibromyalgia symptoms.
But before you give the “Hummingbird” a try — you want some peace of mind that it will actually WORK for you. We get it. That’s why we’ve put together a page of questions we get every day. Plus, we offer some information on pricing — (and our no risk trial). It’s all in one easy-to-read format below:

How does the Hummingbird work?

How does the Hummingbird work?

Many fibromyalgia sufferers have underactive or inactive soleus muscles, causing fluid to pool in the legs. When the heart, upper body and brain don’t get adequate blood circulation, the results can be widespread pain, lack of energy, poor sleep, and “fibro fog."

In a nutshell, The Hummingbird applies precise micro-mechanical stimulation to the nerve-endings in the plantar surface of the foot. This stimulation activates the soleus muscles in the calves which, in turn, improves blood flow throughout the body.


We understand your concern. This fibromyalgia treatment almost sounds too good to be true — but rest assured, it’s backed by science! Several independent research studies (from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Binghamton University, University of Pittsburgh and others) support the science behind the Hummingbird and confirm the results.

Why not just put a vibrator on my feet?

The Hummingbird is actually FAR more than just a vibrator on your feet. Clinical studies show that the stimulation must meet certain key criteria in order to activate the “calf muscle pump”— which reverses the pooling of fluids in the body: 1) correct frequency (44 Hertz); 2) correct amplitude (30-70 microns); and 3) proper positioning. You can find those details by reading the scientific studies on which we created The Hummingbird.

I can’t tolerate vibrations of any kind!

The Hummingbird was designed with you in mind! Unlike a TENS unit — which can be painful to those suffering from fibromyalgia due the intensity of the electrical current being sent into the muscles — The Hummingbird works by applying precise MICRO-mechanical stimulation to the nerve-endings in your feet. Most users can barely feel the stimulation because the movement that creates the vibration is paper thin, and it is extremely targeted to the plantar surface of the feet.

How does your device differ from Quell?

On the surface they seem similar, but in fact they’re VERY different devices. The Quell is, essentially, a TENS unit that sends electrical pulses into the body. This is often PAINFUL for fibromyalgia sufferers because of the intensity of the current.

The Hummingbird doesn’t send electricity into the body. It applies precise micro-mechanical stimulation to the nerve-endings in the plantar surface of the foot, which activates the soleus muscles in the calf. This precise stimulation reverses pooling of fluids in the body. You can read clinical studies on how this provides relief, and more about how The Hummingbird works, here: Clinical Resources

The science behind it suggests it might. But our clinical studies to date have focused solely on The Hummingbird’s effectiveness at relieving fibromyalgia symptoms. You can try it risk-free and return it if you don’t get relief.

Do I need to use the app?

No. The Hummingbird can be used simply by plugging it in. The app gives users advanced control over the device, but it’s not required.

We also sell a handheld remote for the device which can be found here:

Is the Hummingbird covered by insurance? Medicare?

Not yet, unfortunately. It is an FDA Registered Class 1 Medical Device — so it’s FSA eligible. But The Hummingbird represents a new breakthrough in fibromyalgia treatment, and becoming reimbursable by insurance is a long process. We’re estimating it will take 1-2 years.
