  • Patent number: 6997889
    Abstract: The electric massage comb is a handheld electrical tool that can be used to thoroughly scratch the scalp area or to provide a soothing massage for the scalp. This device would feature a tool similar in shape to a curling iron with rows of massaging bumps on the top side and rows of comb teeth on the bottom side. The comb teeth would be arranged in three rows, each row of teeth having a different height than the other rows. The teeth in each row would be arranged similarly to teeth on a standard comb. The handle of the electric massage comb would contain a motor assembly capable of producing longitudinal and axial motions. A variable speed switch would be located on the exterior of the handle and would enable the user to activate the massage comb and select one of three speeds for both the massaging and scratching motions of the device.
