Dreamwave and Low Back Airbag Technology of the Inada Sogno Massage Chair
I am a chiropractor that has treated numerous patients that suffer with pain in their lower back. Naturally, as a chiropractor, I employed the rotary lower back adjustment which helps to loosen the joints in the lower back area, and also to stimulate normal motion for the lower back joints. If you have been to a chiropractor before then you know all about “the move.” This is the move when the chiropractor tries to twist your body into a pretzel, in order to get your back to “pop.”
Most of the time, this is the chiropractic manipulation or adjustment that is used to alleviate low back pain. It usually takes a couple of office visits to receive the complete benefits of the effective treatment.
For anyone who has used a massage chair in the past, you are aware that the primary feature of just about every massage chair are those up/down rollers that basically move from your skull’s base and go down to the very bottom part of your back. The problem that many massage chairs have is that they do not have any rotary motion that is applied to your low back.
I really never expected any types of massage chairs to “pop” a person’s bones, but I always thought lower back rotary motion would be very helpful. I never thought a massage chair could do this until I saw the new Inada Sogno massage chair that just became available in market. This chair featured not one, but two, low back functions that absolutely grabbed my attention. First of all, the waist airbags inflated alternately which induced a rotation motion for the lower back. Secondly, I was impressed by the advanced technology of the Dreamwave feature in the seat because it passively and very effectively moved the pelvis.
The Waist Airbags of the Inada Sogno Massage Chair
Other types of massage chairs also have the waist airbags feature, however, for the first time ever, I saw airbags that inflated on one side first and the other side next, in other words, alternating. Right away I noticed the chair’s motions felt very much like the technique that a chiropractor uses when performing the side posture for the low back adjustment. Naturally, it did not give the same kind of torque that chiropractors apply manually, but it was amazing to see a massage chair manufacturer attempt to imitate that very same motion.
Technology Of The Inada Sogno Dreamwave Massage Chair
The Dreamwave Technology gives that passive motion that’s so very difficult to carry out in most clinical situations. All you have to do is sit down on the seat and this massage chair will work its wonders. When you use the Dreamwave feature, right away you will notice the chair seat starts moving in a smooth undulating figure-8 motion that goes sideways.
Needless to say, you do not have to be experiencing any debilitating pain to appreciate this feature. It’s so gentle and soothing that you’ll really enjoy experiencing it. The motion that is applied is a very gentle motion that is passive, which helps to hydrate the discs in your lower back, as well as, to relax your pelvis and the areas of the lower back. It’s an extremely remarkable feature and will most likely be replicated by different manufacturers in the future.
Both of these features that Inada Sogno massage chairs have really do make it, quite possibly, the most distinctive and effective therapeutic massage chair ever made.
