how to choose your massage chairThe Travelmate massage chair desktop unit is essentially the top half of a massage chair. It is designed to sit on a desk, table, counter or other convenient surface with the client seated in some type of chair that you provide. This is ideal for wheelchair bound clients. It is also a good choice for working in offices where there are plenty of tables and chairs to use. Another common use is in "massage bars" such as you often see in airports. The Earthlite Travelmate massage chair is lightweight (only 9 pounds), and offers quick adjustment, easy transport and low cost.
massage chair model features -
When selecting a massage Chair the features to look for are ease of set-up and transport of the massage chairs, comfort for the client, accessibility for the therapist and durability. Earthlite's Avila II massage chair, Oakworks Portal Pro & Stronglite's Ergo-Pro massage chairs offer all these features plus a unique removable knee rest feature designed to allow clients with sensitive knees to put their feet flat on the floor. The massage chair adjusts to make this position ergonomically correct for your client.
massage chair upholstery -
Most manufacturers offer a durable vinyl as their standard chair covering. Earthlite and Oakworks offer upgraded ultra-soft covering for an aditional charge. All coverings have a solvent-based topcoat that provides an antibacterial covering that combats stains, abrasion, scuffing and burnishing of the massage chair. Don't use harsh chemicals to clean your chair as it will most likely damage the fabric.
choosing the right color -
The hardest thing about choosing your chair covering is often selecting the color. We suggest you pick something dark. Unlike a massage table that is often covered with a sheet, the massage chairs are mostly left uncovered and will more easily show dirt.
massage chair options -
All of our packages come with a convenient carry case. However, the Vortex chair can be purchased with a single carry strap OR carry case. The Earthlite Avila II and Oakworks Portal Pro massage chair package offer the most options and includes a massage chair carrying cases, optional sternum pads and more. If you work on clients with large bellies and/or large breasts you may want to consider the Sternum Pad.
