Of the three Fujikura massage chair models offered the 900, 1000 and 2000 1000 chairs are the mipriced model. It is very competitive and you get a lot of money. Heres a review of the Fujikura 1000 chair and what you get and not getting.
First out, the 1000 Fujikura massage chair looks stylish and contemporary. It is padded in synthetic leather and is available in black, brown or ivory. Do not think that synthetic leather means cheap. In fact, genuine leather is not the best material for a robot massage chair; It is simply not sustainable enough to handle the moving rolls and bags. Probably the worlds best massage chairs are made by Inada and they are all stuffed in synthetic leather.
We compare the features of 1000 with the Human Touch HT 100 massage chair. The HT100 chair is a very popular model and is just a bit more expensive, so its a very good target bar. We also compare it with the robotic iJoy 300 massage chair again, another very popular model selling a little less than Fujikura 1000.
A chairs vertical rolling stroke is something to be seriously considered. The higher you are, the longer the vertical stroke is the better. At this time, the 1000 hands win against competition. 1000 comes with a vertical rolling stroke of 29 while the HT 100 chair comes with a weak 2 . The IJoy 300 chair the cheapest of the three makes it better at 25.
All three chairs have power recline but not all offer the same angle of inclination; The more degrees the chair reclines the better, both in building quality and user benefit. The IJoy chair has the least slope between 115 and 155 degrees; The HT massage chair is doing better, offering between 120 and 170 degrees, but again, 1000 will reach the top of the range between 110 and 170 degrees.
Foot massage is now incorporated with better quality chairs. Honestly, iJoy has no footrest although you can buy an Ottoman without massage function. The human Touch Massage 100 chair comes with a foot massage, but you must manually move it to massage either the calves or feet. There are only 1000 that offer a complete footrest with both a calf and foot massager. The calf support is equipped with 14 airbags that provide four air massage combinations with 2 intensity levels. The footrest is equipped with 12 airbags, offering 4 modes of massage.
All 3 models offer different massage functions. Fujikura 1000 comes with 6 features: rolling back stretching, kneading, flapping, kneading & flapping, shiatsu, knocking and vibrating. You have the choice of automatic or manual massage and which can target certain parts of the body. There are 3 speed settings. HT100 comes with rolling, kneading, compression and percussion with only one speed setting. Whats better with HT100 over 1000 is the Range Control option. You can either have room or partial. The spot option allows more specific parts of the body to be massaged and the partial massage hits 3 up and down for knee or compression. IJoy offers the same features at HT except there is no spot option.
Which offers the best massage is a subjective subject. The 1000 chair might offer a tougher massage, but the HT100 seems to offer a slightly more varied massage session.
Overall, the Fujikura 1000 massage chair really offers the best in terms or function in this price range. I find it hard to find any errors with it, you could have more features but then you have to pay a lot more. However, there is a complaint I have and it has to do with the effect. It is not a printing system; You must constantly press the button as the chair reclines. This means that those with a short range will have difficulty keeping it pressed until the maximum slope has been reached. I think some have to stay and wait for the seat to full recovery before they lie back on the chair.
In summary, if you are looking for one of the best robotic massage chairs in this price range, the Fujikura massage chair is really worth a closer look. You have to consider your budget as well in buying this kind of chair.
