The massager (10) comprises a substantially parallelepiped shaped graspable body having a leading edge which includes a curved central notch (13) with a rounded projection (14, 15) on either side thereof. The curvature of the notch and of each of the projections is such that, when said leading edge of the massager is applied to the back of a person to be massaged, the two projections rest on either side of the spinal column in such a manner as to massage the paravertebral muscles in a manner identical to that provided by the thumbs of a masseur whose shape is imitated by the projections. The rear edge (16) is advantageously provided with a concave curve extending from one side of the massager to the other and suitably dimensioned for providing effective massage of the lower limbs.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
