I couldn't do much to change the calf intensity since they were set by the manufacturer, but we could turn the ottoman over so that the legs of the patient were not massaged at all. For the roller intensity, the only thing we could do was put in a damper pillow, which came with the chair, to lessen the intensity. Well, along came the HT-7120 massage chair, the "grown-up" version of the HT-125. About 3-4 years ago, Human Touch came out with the HT-7120, which provided all the things that were apparently lacking in the old 125/135/136 series, plus a little extra.
Comfort & Ergonomics: Comfort and Ergonomics helps with relaxation. In a massage chair the body should fit well in the chair and should be comforting to the body. The Orion has a plush back rest cover and a large rectangular shoulder pillow. The back cover is good, but the second pillow is too wide and perhaps too thin. The fit of the chair is otherwise comfortable. The curved armrests are very comfortable and the chair can be adjusted from 115 degrees to 170 degrees. Another plus is the leg rest is extendable an extra 4 inches. The paddle mechanism in the calf massager is effective and can be positioned for maximum effect. The manual levers are fairly intuitive in their position. Our rating in this category is 17.
The problem with massage is simply getting them. At typical massage therapy prices of $60 per hour one massage per week ends up costing $3,120 per year... year after year. For people with chronic problems like back pain, arthritic pain, poor circulation in the extremities, and chronic stress, one massage a week is just not sufficient to produce desired therapeutic effects... and the $15,600 annual price tag of 5 day per week massages it out of the question for most people.
For example, the Panasonic MA73 chair features various massage settings that can be adjusted for coverage and intensity. In addition, it is one of just a couple massage chairs that has memory settings that make it possible for users to save all of their favorite massage series.
