Human Contact robotic therapeutic massage chairs occupy the mid- to top-end of the market. There are a selection of fashions accessible, 11 in all, and it may be fairly complicated figuring out which mannequin gives what capabilities and options. Principally, the chairs are finest sorted into teams first after which the finer particulars might be tweezed out. Here is a assessment of Human Contact chairs that can, hopefully, provide you with a good suggestion of what is on provide.
Interactive Well being owns the model identify for each Human Contact and iJoy therapeutic massage chairs. The corporate is American however all chairs are made in China. All of them share a lot of traits corresponding to rotating calf and foot massagers and share an analogous look (other than the HT-1650). Nevertheless, as the worth will increase, the extra options and know-how you get.
The next chairs are grouped with the primary variations between every mannequin within the group being defined.
The HT 100, HT 102 and HT 103
The retail worth for every of those chairs is round $1,500. The upholstery is leather-based match vinyl with each the HT100 and HT102 being accessible in both Black or Bone and with the HT103 accessible in Cashew or Black – the armrests of the HT 103 are available in oak. The HT 100 is smaller than the opposite two and has a vertical vary of 20″ in comparison with 25.5″ of the opposite two chairs. Aside from these variations all of the chairs are the identical factor. You get the next therapeutic massage capabilities: Rolling, Kneading, Compression and Percussion. These are the fundamental fashions so that you solely get Full and Spot vary management. The have energy recline, 1 therapeutic massage program and a couple of speeds for the foot and calf massager – it’s a must to manually transfer it to do both one.
The chairs are good however they are not nearly as good because the Fujikura 1000 therapeutic massage chair that retails for much less at round $1,200. The foot and calf massager is best on this chair and does each calf and foot on the similar time. It additionally has two extra therapeutic massage modes of Chop Motion and Flapping.
My recommendation can be to pay extra consideration in shopping for the Fujikura than the HT 100, HT 102 or HT 103.
The HT 125, HT 135, HT 136 and HT 140
The retail worth of those chairs is round $2,300, $2,400, $2,400 and $2,800 resp. Aside from worth, styling and chair dimension there may be actually no distinction in any respect between them. The HT 125 is the smallest with the HT 140 being the biggest. The HT 136 and HT 140 include strong oak armrests. The therapeutic massage capabilities accessible are: Rolling (1 velocity), Kneading, Compression and Percussion (all with 2 speeds). The therapeutic massage vary management is Full, Higher, Decrease and Guide Place. They arrive with Spot and Partial Vary therapeutic massage. There are a selection of colours they usually all come upholstered in leather-based with match leather-based vinyl. Why, the HT140 ought to price $400 extra is anybody’s guess, so except you are actually eager on its design, the opposite fashions provide higher worth for cash.
Once more, I really feel the Fujikura 1000 chair can nearly match any of those chairs when it comes to design and options and it prices rather a lot much less.
The HT 275 and HT 7120
They retail for round $2,000 and $2,600 resp. They provide just about the identical capabilities, the primary distinction being that the HT7120 is upholstered in actual leather-based as apposed to match leather-based vinyl, which might additionally clarify the distinction in worth. Personally, I would not purchase a chair that was upholstered in actual leather-based; it simply does not put on as effectively which is why prime producers like Inada by no means upholster their chairs in something however artificial leather-based.
The very best options of the chairs are the lumbar warmth and the complete physique stretch therapeutic massage; the chair locks your ankles, then reclines you all of the again whereas providing you with a therapeutic massage within the decrease again; very good.
The HT 1650
Seems extra like an arm chair than robotic therapeutic massage arm chairs for elderly and will certainly attraction to those that dislike the ‘dentist chair’ look of most therapeutic massage chairs. It retails for round $4,600. It has a completely retractable foot and calf massager – it is a fairly good massager too with 2 packages and three settings. The chair additionally incorporates the newest wizardry in acupressure detection sensors to precisely ship the most effective sort of shiatsu therapeutic massage.
It is a bit expensive for my liking; you should buy a chair just like the Inada i.2 Therapeutic massage Chair for lots much less and I believe it is a greater chair. However, the HT 1650 does look very good and delivers the products when it comes to providing you with an excellent, stress-free or invigorating therapeutic massage.
The HT 7450
I am not too positive why anybody would purchase this chair. It retails for an astonishing $4,000 and its largest declare to fame appears to be is antigravity place. It does have very interesting styling and is without doubt one of the most trendy in the marketplace however, do your self a favor and contemplate the Inada i.2 chair as a substitute.
