You sort of put them on, as shoes and they may go all the way up to your knees. You may also get additional cuffs for the upper legs.

Now, vibration and squeezing massagers cause pretty similar effect on your legs. Only they work a bit differently. They look like some sort of shoe hold or shoes, placed in a box. You insert your feet into them. They cause vibration onto your feet and massage them. Most of such massagers have different vibration modes to adjust to your needs or likes.

They sort of look like the blood pressure cuffs, but they massage, instead of taking pressure.
