Infinite Therapeutics has introduced the IT-8500 massage chair as a step-up from the already popular IT-8100. In addition to a stretch program, the IT-8500 chair also boasts a spinal correction feature, full shoulder airbag massage, a headphone port for your own private music, 2 zero gravity positions, intersound technology, a more vigorous roller system, and much, much more. This is all in addition to the features you already expect from a massage chair: foot rollers, head rotation airbags, touch screen remote, mp3 music system, and full body airbags. 

Make-a-Wish

Dr. Alan Weidner supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

  • Zero Gravity - 2 zero gravity positions to encourage a "weightless" position. Ideal for low back pain sufferers, the zero gravity function mimics the optimal position as determined by NASA's space program. Optimal weight distribution removes excessive pressure from any one part of your spine.
  • Inversion Therapy - A full recline of the chair back, accompanied by the zero gravity seat positioning, produces an inversion effect to the spine, distracting the joints of the spine.
  • Mechanical Foot Rollers - While most massage chairs have airbag compression of the feet and calves, the IT-8500 massage chair has 3 mechanical foot rollers that work the sole of each of your feet. Very soothing!!
  • Foot and Calf Airbags - Airbag compression to enhance circulation of the blood and lymph from the legs to the heart.
  • Spinal Correction - Shoulder airbags that compress the front of the shoulders and pin them back, while the rollers move up and down the spine. This feature will leave you feeling like you are standing taller and straighter after you have used this feature.
  • Body Scan - The pinpoint body scan figures out the shape of your spine and the location of your spinal curves so that the chair can cater ever-so personally to your own particular body type. 
  • Seat Airbag Massage and Sway - The IT-8500 massage chair employs seat airbags that move the seat from side to side and up and down, enhancing passive motion to an area of the body that is very hard to reach without the assistance of an actual therapist. Fantastic feature if you have low back pain. 
  • Air Neck Massage - A gently rotation airbag massage relaxes the neck muscles and lulls you to sleep while the chair weaves it's magic.
  • Accu-Roll Shoulder Massage - A full complement of shoulder airbags that will envelope your whole shoulder joint and give it the attention that is lacking in other massage chairs. 
  • Tru-Grip V Stretch - Airbags will grip your shoulders, arms, and lower body while the chair back and ottoman raise and lower...giving you a stretch you will both love and never forget. 
  • Lumbar Heat - The thickness of the body tissues in the low back makes warming up a hard thing to do. A lumbar heating element will assist in that process so that blood flows to those thick tissues a little quicker.
  • Acuroll Neck & Shoulder Massage - This model utilizes 5 sensors to help assess and then provide the most accurate neck and shoulder massage. 
  • mp3 Music System - The music system includes a USB port for a jump drive full of your favorite music, external speakers, a headphone port so that you can enjoy your music in your own little space, and intersound technology, which basically is a speaker system that faces inward toward the user.
  • 45' Program Timer - You can schedule your massage chair to be anywhere from 10-45 minutes long...the longest of any massage chair timer in the marketplace. 
  • 30.25" Roller  Track 
  • 38 Total Airbags

    review of Infinity IT-8500 Massage Chair
    Mar 31, 2015 at 09:10 AM

    I'll admit, I had tried dozens of different chairs including Inadas and Osakis and knew, more or less, what I wanted in a massage chair. The Infinity gave me all the features that I was looking for, plus it was priced more competitively than most. However, this was still a rather large investment that I didn't want to jump into until I was completely comfortable with the entire buying process. Dr. Weidner has gone the extra mile with his information and support and made the final decision to buy much easier. His YouTube channel is fantastic! He responds to every email, answers every call, and he knows his stuff.
    The Infinity IT-8500 is a wonderful chair. I chose it because I wanted an effective stretch option and this one has one of the better that I have tried. The roller pressure is perfect for me but a little deep for my wife. She just throws a blanket on the rollers and is good to go. The finish on this chair is wonderful. The functions of the chair aren't as intuitive as I have seen on others but Dr. Weidner has a YouTube video that covers that. Did I mention that his YouTube channel is fantastic? In all I am extremely pleased with this purchase and the buying experience that Dr. Weidner has provided.

    It was worth the flight to visit Dr. Weidner out in Utah to pick just the right chair for my husband. This chair has been the best! When guests come over they fight over who will use the chair next. It's so much better than having to go somewhere and make an appt. We love it! No regrets ... and Thank You Dr. Weidner for spending all that time with me!

    review of Infinity IT-8500 Massage Chair
    Feb 23, 2015 at 08:56 AM

    Ahhh. I've had my IT-8500 for several weeks now, and it's wonderful.

    The chair itself is just what I hoped it would be. It provides a vigorous massage, and there are plenty of adjustable features to customize it to your own preferences. The combination of preprogrammed options and manual settings allow you to vary the experience each time you try it. I imagine I will eventually settle on one or two options as my favorites, but for now I'm enjoying testing out something different each time.

    As for delivery, I would urge everyone to opt for the white glove service. The chair is very heavy, and you will need several strong people to maneuver it to where you want it. During the set up, be sure to check that the arms have been set up properly. The bolts that connect the arms to the main chair are a bit tricky to install, and you want to make sure these are secure.

    As for where you should purchase your chair, there's really no choice. Dr. Weidner and Massage Chair Relief are heads and tails above any other site I was able to find. The information provided prior to purchase is excellent, and specific questions are answered thoroughly and promptly. The follow-up is also terrific. Dr. Weidner definitely makes you fell that he cares about you satisfaction.

    review of Infinity IT-8500 Massage Chair
    Feb 22, 2015 at 01:18 PM

    I am like many of the other reviewers, in that I did not have anywhere to 'try before buy' location anywhere nearby, so I had to take the chance and go for it. The reviews on here helped me as well as a talk with Dr. Weidner. I, as well as my husband, am very satisfied with the choice of the IT8500. It is very heavy and has to be taken out of box to get inside, but we put it directly on furniture pads so it could be moved easily once inside. It took about 2 hours to assemble, but that is because one of the attachment pieces for an arm was bent and after removing and reattaching for the third time (after the other arm went on without any problem) I looked at the 'attachment screw thing' and it was bent, after fixing it, the arm went on easily and the rest of the chair went together easily also. I would suggest help with attaching the foot rest. As for the massage you get with the chair, it is the closet thing to getting a massage from a massage therapist. My husband could not believe how good it felt. We like the pre-programmed programs, for instance the recover is great after yard work, it really hits the right spots and helps eliminate next day stiffness. The foot massage is almost too much at times, but can be managed with a little foot adjustment on my part. The noise level of the chair is not an issue at all. The size of the chair is actually a smaller footprint than the regular rocker recliners I have. I ordered the brown and love it. The brown is a very dark rich brown. No real negatives to mention about this chair. Hope this helps somebody make their decision.

    review of Infinity IT-8500 Massage Chair
    Feb 07, 2015 at 11:38 AM

    Infinity IT-8500 review
    I have owned an Infinity IT-8500 Massage Chair for about 10 days now. This is how I decided on this chair and my impressions after 10 days.
    I had used the SmartCart massage chairs at the Mall and liked how I felt after a 30 minutes session. Then cost was only $5.00 for 30 minutes but they had limitations. There was no foot massage, sometimes the chairs did not work after I put in my money and you had to deal with people walking by all the time staring at you. So I started looking for a home massage chair.
    I spent several weeks researching chairs online and thought I wanted the Osaki OS-4000T. The price was right and it looked like it had a good set of features that I wanted. My biggest concern was I did not want to buy a chair without first trying it out. I found stores in Las Vegas and in Southern California that had some of the chairs I had read about online. I started planning a trip to check out the chairs. I live in Utah about 40 miles south of Salt Lake City so I decided to do a road trip. Then after a little more searching I found a store called Massage Chair Relief in Taylorsville, Utah. That was only 25 minutes away. I called the store and Dr. Alan Weidner answered the phone. He told me he had the chair I wanted to try on his showroom floor and we set up an appointment to try it out on a Saturday morning.
    It took about one minute to determine that the Osaki OS-4000T was not for me. My shoulders did not fit and my arms were very uncomfortable sitting in the chair. The good news was that Dr. Weidner had 14 other chairs to try out. I spent the next two and a half hours trying different chairs and narrowed it down to the Titan TP-Pro 8300 and the Infinity IT-8500. The Titan has an L shaped track for the rollers that extend from your head to the top of your legs. The massage is amazing. The Infinity has a stretch feature that holds on to your shoulder and feet and stretched your body as in gently arches you back. I had to return a few days later to try out both chairs fresh and finally decided on the IT-8500. I recommend that you find a way to try out any massage chair before you plop down several thousand dollars.
    First Impressions: The IT-8500 is a well built, sturdy chair with plenty of support and power to work my 285 lb body. When you start one of the 4 pre-programmed settings, the chair sizes your body so that it knows how to work you neck and shoulders. The chair has a very strong foot massage using both air bags and rollers. I love it but after a few sessions I decided to add about 1 inch of foam between my feet and the rollers. This is more comfortable if you use the chair multiple times a day.
    I use all four of the preset programs. I use the Extend program in the morning. It combines kneading, knocking, pummeling, and shiatsu roller functions with arm, shoulder, calves and feet massage that is occasionally interrupted by a series of 3 stretches. I usually do a 30 or 45 minute session before work.
    After work I use the Recover or Refresh Program. The Recover program features the stretch but not as often as the Extend Program. It combines kneading, pummeling and knocking with the airbags and feet massage to relief tension and stress.
    The Refresh program adds the use of the head air bags. It adds a firm massage to the upper neck and lower head area. The head air bag can be flipped over the back of the chair when not in use. The stretch feature is not used in the refresh program but the rollers are used to focus the massage in one area at a time. This is the best setting when I have a sore neck or shoulders. It also concentrates on the lower back. The foot massage is not as aggressive with this setting.
    Just before bedtime I like to use the Relax program. It uses the head air bags to gently rock your head back and forth as it massages the whole body. It is not as aggressive as the Extend and Recover programs. I find it can easily put me to sleep as I listen to music from the built in speakers or watch a TV show. As with all the programs I can turn on the heated rollers and adjust the intensity of the airbags or even turn the airbags off. I can also choose to turn on or off the feet rollers.
    Overall I love this chair. I am still experimenting with the manual modes and adjusting the settings individually but find that the preset programs meet most of my needs. I highly recommend this chair.
