I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season so far. I am not a big fan of Christmas music at Halloween, but once Thanksgiving hits, I am into it all the way!
Well, our HT-7450 anti-gravity massage chair finally came into the showroom yesterday and I must say that, so far, I am quite impressed with it. The first thing I noticed about it was how small the box was. I am accustomed to bigger boxes, especially when they weigh a lot (the HT-7450 weighs about 230 lbs.). But, this box was relatively small. When we opened it up, I could see why. The back is shipped NOT attached to the bottom of the chair…it lays on top of the chair bottom. We found it to be quite easy to assemble; a couple of big screws and three wires hooked together and we were done. White glove service does come with this chair…it is included in the free shipping!
The second thing I noticed about it was how firm the seat and the back were. Because of that firmness, I was expecting a more “rough” massage than the rest of the chairs. Well, to my delight, the massage was wonderful.
With the anti-gravity feature, the chair seat reclines along with the chair back (you see, most other chairs have the seat remain stationary whilst the ottoman and the back move). I could actually feel the pressure on my back lessen as the seat tilted back. The ottoman raises to a horizontal position.
The remote is very easy to use, as are all Human Touch remote controls. It is a good blend between the HT-7120 and the HT-1650 remotes. Lots of features, but very easy to use and follow. One of our showroom visitors once mentioned the fact that they didn’t like the remotes that were sticking up on the pedestals attached to the side of the massage chair. They liked the Human Touch chairs because the remotes were stored in a side pocket and could not be seen when one happens upon the chair. Never thought about that, but an interesting point to consider when looking at massage chairs.
When I got up off the chair, I noticed that I felt quite a bit taller and straighter and I was only on the chair for about 5 minutes! It felt great. I wonder if that is a “side effect” of the massage or the anti-gravity incline. Either way, I felt great when I got off the chair.
Nice chair…it has already received some critical acclaim about it’s anti-gravity feature.
