Massage Chair Comparison Omega Montage Premier Vs Sanyo DR 7700
Massage Chair Comparison: Omega Montage Premier Vs. Sanyo DR 7700
by Seth Krugman
Two of the absolute best high-end massage chairs are made by Sanyo and by Omega massage. Both of these manufacturers have solid reputations in very reliable massage chairs. Omega massage produces the Montage Premier massage chair and Sanyo produces the DR 7700 massage chair. Both of these massage recliners are packed with some amazing features. We take a look at both of these models to help you decide which one will best fit your needs.
The fit of the massage chair is always important. When you sit down in both chairs, you will notice some slight differences. The Sanyo seems for me to be somewhat on the small side for a high-end chair. The Omega Montage Premier on the other hand seemed to envelop me when seated. It just seemed to feel plusher than the Sanyo. The Omega certainly could fit taller people much better than the Sanyo could.
One of the amazing new features found only in the Sanyo DR 7700 massage chair is a physical shape sensor. The physical shape sensor determines the shape of your body as seated in the chair. If you move during the course of the massage, then the physical shape sensor will pick that up and redirect the massage based on your new position in the chair.
Omega massage also equips its Montage Premier with a back scanning capability. The back scan will be activated when an automatic massage is turned on. The body scan commences to find the neck and shoulders and other important locations for the massage. This information is inputted into the computer and used to deliver a customized massage.
The Sanyo DR 7700 massage chair also has a stiffness detection system. A mouse like device is used to read certain stress signals area it records your pulse rate and perspiration. The mouse must be held during the massage to take the reading. The stiffness detection system works with the LCD to point out the areas detected.
The Montage Premier comes with five automated massage programs. Each of the five massage programs delivers a full body massage. These programs are designed to address different types of needs. Some are more deep tissue related while others are for warm up and invigoration.
Sanyo has equipped the DR 7700 massage chair with four automatic programs. These programs also are full body massage programs. Many of these programs are fairly subtle and not as deep penetrating. This seemed to be one of the drawbacks of the DR 7700 massage chair.
The Montage Premier also provides additional therapeutic treatments beyond the massage therapy. The Montage Premier has full body heaters. The Sanyo DR 7700 has a heater only for the soles of the feet. Heat is commonly applied to help reduce swelling and to enhance blood flow.
Omega has included a lower body stretching system and the Montage Premier massage chair. This lower body stretching will stretch out the muscles from the hips knees and ankles. This helps to relieve pressure off the lower spine and to relieve the legs. The Sanyo DR 7700 can recline back into the zero gravity position. This position helps to take pressure off of the spine and better distribute it across your back.
When you are actually getting a massage in both chairs, you will also notice that the Montage Premier provide a much better environment for total relaxation. Just slip on the headphones and listen to some soft music to relax. Activate the full body heat to warm you up and start an automatic massage program. Close your eyes and you'll find yourself in a comfortable and relaxing place.
After putting both chairs through their paces, we find that the Omega Montage Premier is the superior massage chair. The end result of any massage chair is to provide relief and relaxation. The Omega Montage Premier simply out performs the Sanyo DR 7700 massage chair. The features of the Montage Premier add therapeutic value to the chair, whereas the Sanyo DR 7700 has more gimmicky features. If you are looking for the best massage chair on the market, you have found the Omega Montage Premier massage chair.
