The massage itself is fantastic. It goes from the base of your skull down to the bottom of your back near your tail bone. It will knead your neck area and shoulder areas. It kneads, taps, and stretches your back out. It works the muscles all down the spine. There is a great fast vibration mode in many of the programs. The air bags inflate and squeeze your thighs and calves. There are rollers in the feet that work over the bottoms of your feet. Air bags massage the ankle and foot area. Air bags squeeze and massage your arms. Airbags press down on your shoulder muscles. When it stretches you, the air bags grab your feet and stretch your legs out. Then they pin your shoulders while it stretches your back out. The seat oscillates side to side and exercises the hip area subtly. The chair is very quiet while operating. You could have it in a TV room and barely know it was on. There are 9 automatic programs: My favorite is the morning program. It is a very nice combination of stretching and massage. Whenever I come home from a long day at work with my back hurting, that's the one I do. I feel great afterward. Now the coolest thing: If you choose to customize your massage settings, you can just store it. That's it. No body scan needed.
Since buying my i7 I have gained flexibility and loosened up a bit so that I can easily reach down and pick things up off the ground and in general I feel good. Before, if I worked a bunch of hours over several days in a row, it used to take two or three days before my back felt good again. Now I just pop into the chair at the end of the day. It makes me feel great.
I waited and waited for the release of the iRobotics i7 chair since first seeing the medical massage features at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show. It was worth the delay because I love my iRobotics i7 massage chair and all the thoughtful features. (I had a Panasonic massage chair for 24 years and upgraded to an Osaki Pro Cyber. I much prefer the iRobotics i7 for a better quality massage, more user-friendly remote control and manual choices). For this purchase, I wanted to buy a product made in American as much as possible. After experiencing the outstanding and exceptional service, I am convinced that my investment in this USA product was well-worth the money and wait. I look forward to many years of massages with this chair. At the bottom of the Luraco email was this quote "People don't care how much we know until they know how much we care". WOW! I certainly experienced this caring from the Service Department and truly feel they are highly trained and knowledgeable. Don constantly gave his boss all the credit of having high expectations of Luraco's products and service to match; it is clear that the Luraco Management gives thoughtful consideration to its products and trains its technical support well. Each person with whom I have come into contact has been a positive reflection of Luraco's mission.
My faith in USA made products has been re-affirmed. Thanks Luraco
I am a retired Command Chief Master Sergeant of the United States Air Force and 100% disabled veteran. I want to go on record to state that this massage chair is absolutely fantastic and has far exceeded all my expectations. I am an extremely light sleeper that the slightest sound awakes me. For the last couple of weeks I have been using the night massage each night before I go to bed and I can honestly state I don't wake up all night. I get eight hours of uninterrupted sleep. I contribute this to the technology in the i7 massage chair. Additionally, I am a diabetic and have neuropathy in my legs and feet. Since using the i7 I am completely free of the stinging neuropathy pain. In discussing this with my primary care physician, he stated that it was definitely related to the daily use and the massage therapy provided by your chair and the technologies involved. As a matter of interest my Doctor is presently looking at configuring the i7 massage chair into his patient system.
Again thank you for introducing me to this medical wonder!
“The chair felt awesome, and I feel very relaxed right now. This is a great way to keep the day going after sitting in Math 1050. Sometimes the neck and head massage got a little too intense on the health setting, so I used a small blanket next to the chair for extra padding. It’s also cool how it talks you and says to have a nice day and remain seated. It reminded me of a ride at an amusement park.”
“This chair is becoming my new favorite in here. I thought it was too intense the first time I’ve tried it, but I decided to give it another try and I’m glad I did. The health setting is my favorite because I feel it massages at a slower pace. I’m almost falling asleep by the time the massage is over (laughing).”
