Arm Airbags of the Inada Sogno Massage Chair
I have another video for the Inada Sogno massage chair. This time I discuss the full arm airbag massage. We have always been accustomed to arm airbag massage in the past with other models. Many chair models have a forearm or hand/wrist massage, but this is the first time we had seen a full arm massage, including arm, forearm, hand, wrist, and finger massage.
The chair comes in two boxes, one of which has the ottoman and the arm rests. The reason the arm rests need to go into another box is because of their size...and their larger size can be attributed to the air bag massage. The airbags inflate not just on the outside of the arms, but also on the inside. Thus, the arm rests are attached in such a way that the arm rests will expand when the arm airbags inflate...of particular benefit for broad-chested users who will not be "crushed" or "squished" by the inflating airbags on either side of the arms.
Here is the video...
Inada Sogno Massage Chair Intensity Adjustment
Airbag intensity on the Inada Sogno massage chair can be adjusted to "Low", "Medium", and "High" settings. These settings also apply to all airbags in the chair. It has been my experience that many people can handle high intensity roller massage, but many folks also struggle with discomfort from airbag massage that is too intense, particularly in the arms and calves. These can all be adjusted in the Inada Sogno massage chair.
Although the arm rests in the Inada Sogno have this sophisticated airbag arm massage, the chair is really not designed to use the arm rests as true arm rests. You would find it a bit un-natural to sit leisurely in the chair reading or doing something with your hands with the bulky arm rests and arm airbags.
But, therapeutically speaking, there is no other chair like this currently in the market. There are knock off lookalikes to the Sogno which even have shoulder/upper arm airbags but they only apply compression to the outside of the shoulders and arms. It is not a true bilateral airbag massage to the upper arms.
