Review of the New Sanyo 8700 Massage Chair

By Dr. Alan Weidner

Sanyo has just released the Sanyo 8700, a Top of the Line Massage Chair. This chair, like the zero gravity massage chairs-the 6700/7700/8700 is a zero gravity chair with some great upgrades: The Sanyo 8700 has a stretch program that gently squeezes around the ankles and pulls down on the legs to create a great stretch through the low back, hips, and legs. This is a great addition to loosening and releasing the muscle tension. This amazing chair also has 3 incredible zero-gravity programs that vary from creating a full-body experience, to an Air-comfort massage. The Air-Comfort massage utilizes the air cell compression to work the back, leg, and foot, loosening and releasing the muscle tension throughout the body.

This chairs ottoman has new features that help to accommodate users up to 6'4" by having a longer lower leg extension-(8") providing even more flexibility for a perfect massage with a wide range of users in mind.

There is another new feature to this ottoman and that is that the leg and foot pieces are separate. This allows for the foot part to rotate down so that if the user doesn't want the bottoms of their feet massaged they can rotate this down and have it focus on massaging more the backs of the calves and behind the thighs. This feature is also nice for taller users to where this rotation may provide even greater comfort.

There is also an an intensity adjuster that allows for deeper pressure or can be as gentle as you would like it to be! This chair also has a very sophisticated sensor system. It has a stress sensor that detects the mental fatigue that your body is going through. An exclusive stiffness detection system is available so that the chair can focus on those stiffest areas and release the tension. The Physical Shape Sensor is the last sensor which allows the massage rollers to automatically accommodate various body types and shifts in position during massage, adjusting accordingly.

The early interest in this massage chair has been quite high. The price tag on this model is $5999, which is $1000 more than the very popular 7700 zero gravity massage chair from Sanyo. If you have always loved the Sanyo massage chairs you'll want to try this one out as it seems they have taken all the best things about Sanyo chairs and sifted out the features that needed some fine tuning. It is easy to say that this chair is truly Sanyo's Top of the Line massage chair! - 31520
