There are a couple of massage chair devices that you should stay away from. At the lowest end of the spectrum are the massage cushions that slip over an existing chair. Some simply vibrate, others have what they call a "shiatsu" massage, and both varieties may have heat. From a therapeutic viewpoint, these types of devices are worthless. There is one minor exception. Some that can work off the cigarette lighter or accessory outlet in a car can provide some benefits to circulation on long auto trips. One level above the slip over massage cushions are vibrating chairs. All they do is vibrate. These are also not particularly useful from a therapeutic view.
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 way they attempt to achieve this is through adhering to three robotics principles: Technique, Brain and Sense. The concept 'Sense' just means that they engineer their chairs so that they are responsive to the user's needs.
The many benefits of massage therapy have been recognized since 4-500 years B.C. Records show that massage was widely used in China, Greece, India, Egypt, Rome and more. These ancient societies fully recognized the many benefits of massage therapy. Since prior to 1980 massage chairs have been available. These chairs provide a full range of computer-driven massage programs. It's like having an expensive weekend at the spa available at any time for their owners.
