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
    Apr 24, 2013 at 05:20 PM

    We have had this chair for about a month now and have used it extensively with daily massages since day one. First let me state that if you’re like me, you are probably doing a LOT of research on what is the best high end massage chair out there. I have reviewed everything I could find on Inada, Osaki, Infinity, Luraco, Osim, etc. Prior to my purchase I was able to test out the Inada Sogno, Osaki, and Osim products. It’s important to know that the Inada Sogno is bar none, the best chair out there. So, don’t be fooled into thinking that buying the IT-8500 or any other chair will be just like or will replace the Inada Sogno, they don’t.
    Having said that, I truly believe that the best bang for the buck is the Infinity IT-8500. The manufacturing of this product appears to be very solid as I opted to assemble the chair myself, everything went together very well, I was impressed with the sturdiness of the chair and associated components.
    This chair has many options to choose from relative to varying types of massage with the ability to specify a particular area if desired. I also really like the ability to have a long 45 minute massage with heat, or I can opt for shorter time frames if desired. I’m also glad that I decided to go with a chair that has foot rollers; for me this is a must. The airbags are strong and can be adjusted from low to high depending on how intense you want the pressure, I love this option! You can also do just an airbag massage without the rollers which is a nice option to have as well.
    Personally for me I really enjoy the “Relax” massage program, my wife prefers the “Refresh” and “Extend” programs. All of them are good and each offers a different combination of rollers, air bags, and cycling between zero gravity and inverted, etc. This chair also offers two zero gravity positions which allows for adjusting the intensity of the massage purely by how you sit in the chair.
    If I had any complaints about this chair, it is that the foot rollers can be very intense especially if you have the air bags on a high level. However, the foot rollers can be turned off if desired, but I found it was easy enough to fold up a couple towels which made level of sensation perfect. Additionally, the back rollers can be pretty intense and there is no adjustment to modify this. So, similar to what I did with the foot rollers, I just folded up a small blanket which significantly helped. One recommendation to Infinity would be to provide some customized padding that could easily be fitted into the foot holds and back area to adjust the level of intensity.
    All in all, I would highly recommend this chair and trust me, I’m a little OCD and have been researching these chairs for about a two year before I finally decided to pull the trigger. I’m glad I did and very pleased with my purchase.
    Last but not least, I’m extremely pleased with my purchase experience through this company. Dr. Weidner put up with multiple calls and emails from me regarding the many, various questions I had and was always gracious with his time. Matter of fact, the first time I called I was very surprised that Dr. Weidner was the one to answer the phone. The service has been excellent and truthfully wouldn’t have purchased from anyone else because I know if something were to go wrong with my chair, Dr. Weidner will be there to assist. I should state that I am providing this review on my own free will, nothing more.
    Best of luck on your chair search and purchase.

    review of Infinity IT-8500 Massage Chair
    Mar 05, 2013 at 07:31 PM

    @David
    I am sorry to hear that your massage chair is too rough for you. I would strongly encourage you to reach out to the retailer from whom you purchased your chair to get them involved in the process of communicating with Infinite Therapeutics. They have a wonderful customer support team and they will help you. The company that sold you the chair should also have a money back guarantee which should allow you to ship the chair back to them. If you were our customer, you actually have a 90 day money back guarantee. Most companies, however, have a 30 day money back guarantee. Regarding the roughness of the chair, after ruling out a problem with the chair with Infinite Therapeutics customer support, I would suggest using a damper pad or a throw blanket or towel to lessen the intensity of the rollers. I have never heard anyone describe the intensity of the IT-8500 massage the way you have described it, but some folks do find it a bit intense. The dampening pad, towel, or blanket should do the job. Here is Infinite Therapeutics phone number: 1-603-347-6006.

    review of Infinity IT-8500 Massage Chair
    Mar 05, 2013 at 07:23 PM

    My search for a massage chair here in Hawaii led to limited choices, I searched the Web, there are many websites, I was impressed with ‘Massage Chair Relief’ as it contained videos that helped me understand and decide on the features I wanted. I narrowed my search down to Osaki 7570r or Infinite Therapeutics (IT) 8500. During a vacation in Las Vegas I planned to visit a couple of massage chair stores to try out each of these chairs, one store’s address turned out to be a UPS store, the other had no chair, no showroom, and two guys who had a strong foreign accent. I was so disappointed. My decision was reduced to talking to talking with Dr Wiedner, he described both chairs as honestly as he could (believe me I asked many questions, and called many times). He stated that I would be happy with either chair. I made my final decision based on the smaller size of the IT-8500. Now the part that really left an impression on me, remember I live in Hawaii, free shipping is from the warehouse to the boat dock. Dr. Wiedner worked with his shipper: Josh Chase of S&C Services LTL, Rail & Truckload Freight who got a reasonable shipping price for me. And kept me informed of the shipment every step of the way. The chair arrived very well protected on a pallet, shrink wrapped, on time and without a scratch. Remember the chair spent about 7 days at sea. I was most afraid of authorizing a large amount of money to someone I haven’t met (no matter how nice he seemed on the phone), all my future web shopping was on the line with this purchase. I trusted Dr Weidner, and I must say I had some amount of anxiety waiting for the shipment to arrive. But, I was real happy with the timeliness and condition of the shipment.

    The IT-8500, I followed the assembly video on ‘Massage Chair Relief’ and assembled the chair easily the only problem was I created a minor tubing kink while assembling the left arm. A little common sense and I fixed the kink quickly. Aahh the chair, the auto programs ran smoothly manual programs were not hard to learn. I now have it under control. Favorite features: (1) the three foot rollers that work in conjunction with the foot air bags. The air bags move your feet across the rollers creating different sensations from the rollers. (2) Music sync with the massage, at first I thought this feature was a gimmick, but just to make sure everything worked I plugged in a zip drive and it actually syncs’ the back massage rollers to the music. Each different music beat creates a different type of massage, I like it! (3) I also enjoy the zero gravity feature along with the (4) heating element for my back. (5) I like the swivel seat feature because the rollers do not go up and down on the same spot the swivel moves my back left and right and catches more of the lower back muscles. The only annoyance is small: the controller buttons don’t respond unless you touch them ‘dead on’. At times, I have to press 2 or 3 times to activate the desired feature. (This has gotten easier the more I use the chair).

    Summary, Dr Wiedner/Massage Chair Relief is a great man/company to deal with, he delivered. I love the chair. I used to get out of bed in the morning in stages: sit up, hands on knees, standing three quarters then slowly fully straight. (Kind of like the picture of the evolution of man) Within 2 days of the chairs arrival, from sitting to standing straight is accomplished in one step. I daily spend at least 20 minutes on the chair.
    No matter what chair you decide to buy, do your homework (use the videos on Massage Chair relief.com) if possible go experience your selected chair. If you are still unsure, call Dr. Wiedner he is a man of his word, honest, truthful, is easy to talk to, and is always available. Thank you Dr. Weidner.
