Tips on Purchasing Massage Office Chairs

Aug 17, 2007
In an effort to increase worker productivity and satisfaction, the importance of a comfortable work environment has become essential. Because workers and employees spend so much time sitting at their desk at work, there is an increased interest in bringing the benefits of the massage to the workplace to help reduce work-related injuries and work fatigue. Office massage chairs have become popular, and combine both relaxation and rejuvenation for the employee. If you decide to purchase a massage model office chair for your office or business, here are some important features to consider.

Office massage chairs start with a typical office chair design, usually with a straight back and armrests. The massage chair model will be covered in a leather or a leather-like fabric. Leather helps cover all of the message controls more effectively than other types of popular office chair designs, such as mesh, or wood. Also, the chair should include the adjustability tools like Tilt, tension, swivel and lift height adjustments. As with any office chair, the material should be of good quality and be comfortable, in addition to having a number of adjustments that can be made manually, without the massage function.

Several other components make-up the massage portion of the chair, and need to be inspected carefully before purchasing. The main parts are the Massage chair motors, this is the power behind the rollers, which move the rollers to the right areas, along with creating any necessary seat adjustments. The motors should be powerful, but not overwhelmingly loud. You may want to inquire about any special coverage for the motors under the warranty, as they power the whole massage portion of the chair, and if they break, the chair will lose its massage function.

The next major part of the chair are the actual rollers and nodes, which apply the message to the individual, and are usually are modeled after hands and fingers, simulating a manual massage. Office massage chairs may have primarily large rollers, which give a more general massage, or the may also the ability to target specific areas to provide a pressure point massage. This is where it is a great idea to test before you buy. The rollers should apply plenty of pressure, but also the ability to reach different areas of the back, as well. Of course, it is essential that the massage portion feels beneficial.

Probably the most important chair feature are the controls, and the control pad. This will allow you to adjust both the chair and the type of massage given. The control pad should give you a variety of options for both adjusting the type and area of the message, along with the chair itself, in order to provide the most optimum massage.

Massage has many well-documented benefits, which when brought into the workplace, will increase productivity and satisfaction. There are numerous benefits to massage, and those benefits can easily make the workplace more enjoyable, and the worker more productive.
