Intro Video to Panasonic MA70 (with transcripts)


Transcript of Video Titled “Introduction – Panasonic MA70 Massage Chair”

[SCREEN TEXT: Introduction]

Alan: Hi, I’m Dr. Alan Weidner from ‘Massage-Chair-Relief.com‘ and today we are going to introduce you to the Panasonic MA70, which is Panasonic’s top-of-the-line chair. It came out a couple of years ago. It was originally manufactured in Japan, and there was a real prestige about that when they first came out with the chair. Panasonic has since moved all their manufacturing of all their chairs to China. The design and the engineering is still Japanese based, but now the manufacturing is all done in China. The chair is a very, very nice chair, a lot of people that are looking at the MA70 are shopping – when they’re shopping for a chair and they’re looking at the MA70 – it’s a chair that they often compare to the Inada Sogno because of the similar price point, and this is a very nice chair. There’s a few features about it that we will just, kind of, touch on today in the intro, but we’ll go in to greater detail when we do the individual feature videos.

Alan: First of all, if you take a look at the chair, it’s a nice-looking chair. Panasonic’s notion with this chair was to create a chair that when it wasn’t being used as a massage chair, it could be used as a regular type of recliner. You’ll notice this pillow top here, it has this pillow, if you leave this pillow on while you’re using the massage chair, you will not feel a very intense massage at all. You’ll feel a little bit of massage underneath, but not much, because it has padding. It’s got lumbar support, if you look at the pad here, it’s a thick pad for the lumbar support. It’s got thoracic support here, and it’s got a head and neck support as well. So, if you’re not using it as a regular massage chair, and just using it as a recliner, use this pillow. This pillow can be flipped up over the back and when you use your massage chair, we recommend that you lift that pillow up and over the back, or you can even unzip it. There’s a zipper here when you attach it. When you get the chair, that’s pretty much the only assembly you’ll have to do, are the back pads, and this one zips on, but you can lift that up or take it off completely.

Alan: Then you’ll see that there’s a head pillow underneath there, there’s no airbags in it, it’s just a foam pillow, and you’ll see this linen material that separates the rollers from your back. I’ll tell you the intensity of the massage on the MA70 is significant, it’s a very intense massage. The rollers are a jade stone roller that has a heating element next to it that warms up the jade-heated rollers – or the jade rollers – and creates a heated roller. So, the heat on the MA70 is not a heating element, or like a heating pad, it is the actual rollers themselves that become warmed up through the heating element underneath the linen, and creates a very deep, therapeutic heating massage, very, very nice. You’ll also notice, and by the way, when you are done with the chair as a massage chair, you can flip this thing back up and over, or you can just leave it hanging over the back, or unzip it completely if you never, ever want to use it. You’ll also notice on this chair it has the typical Panasonic armrests.

Alan: You can lift these armrests, and the arms slide underneath it where there’s airbag compression on the fingers and the wrist and the forearm. But you can also lay it down, and again, the look of the armrest, and the broad contact of the armrest. also contributes to the basic use of the chair as a recliner, or as a chair and not as a massage chair. So, again, you’ve got this pillow here, you’ve got armrests that you can rest your arms on, and that contributes to the look of a regular chair. Now, this also has seat massage, we can’t see any of it now until we highlight it. It’s got these little airbags on the side. These airbags on the side of the thighs are not for massaging the thighs. They’re for pinning the pelvis in – so that when the rollers come up and down your spine – these airbags pin your hip in so the body doesn’t slide forward with the rollers, thus enhancing the intensity of the massage. You’ll also notice here airbags on the waist, and they will inflate from side to side and rotate the body. Also, down here when we get to the ottoman, it’s got a very nice foot and calf massage. One of the things that the MA70 was built for was for taller people, a lot of the other Panasonic models, like the 30007 and the 1285, were designed for people 6 feet and under, and I think 6 feet is a reach, so under 6 feet. I am 5’10 and when I sat on the 30007, even my knees were up a little bit, even with the ottoman extended.

Alan: Well, this ottoman’s got a good extension. The chair is designed for people up to 6′ 2. One thing that’s kind of cool about this one is that if you don’t want to use the ottoman – whether the chair is on or whether you’re just using it as a regular recliner – you can pull this latch up, and now you can rotate the ottoman under, and so now it looks like a regular ottoman. So, if we have that rotated, we have this pillow down, we have the armrests down, it’s just like a regular chair and you can use it that way. Of course, it is a massage chair and it’s designed for therapy, so you can have everything exposed, and use it as you will. That is about it. There’s some shoulder airbags here that are also used – just like the hip airbags – are used to pin the hips in, so there’s an increased intensity in the rollers.

[SCREEN TEXT: ‘www.massage-chair-relief.com’ 888-259-5380]

Alan: The shoulder airbags also compress the shoulders, and kind of pin the upper body in, so that when the rollers come up the mid-back, those shoulders are pinned back, so it increases the intensity. If you didn’t have the shoulders airbags, the rollers would push you forward, and there would be very little resistance, except for gravity itself, and the weight of your body. So, these will kind of pin you in and hold you. Remember, these do not massage you, they just pin your body in. I think that’s – oh, and the remote control – it’s a very, very easy to use remote control. We’ll create a separate video discussing the remote, but it’s a simple remote. You turn the power on, you can push any of these automatic programs. You can do manual settings to particular areas or you can do kind of a ‘Stretch’ program or another semi-automatic air massage feature here. It’s a very very simple remote control to use, and it pops up in to this pedestal. It’s a pedestal remote. Some people don’t like pedestals on their chairs. You can always remove the pedestal if you want, and just have this thing hanging loosely on the seat or down by the side of the chair, if you don’t like the pedestal.

Alan: The remote’s a very, very simple remote to use. I like it, it’s very easy to use. On subsequent videos we’ll show the remote, we’ll show how the rollers work, we’ll show how the ottoman and the seat works, and the armrests, we’ll go in to that in greater detail. But this is a good introduction today for the Panasonic MA70, which also comes in a ‘Black.’ This is the ‘Ice’ color, which is an off-white, kind of a really, really, really light beige. It’s not white, white dirties real easy, and it’s hard to clean. This is ‘Ice,’ it’s an off-white, more of a light beige-spectrum color. It’s easy to clean, and it doesn’t show dirt as much as you might think it does. This is the MA70. We will be creating more videos henceforth.
