Type No.1: Mechanical back rub seat
The mechanical back rub seat is the most seasoned sort of back rub seat. It utilizes vibrations to make the back rub impact. The component which makes the vibrations is a greater adaptation of the one cell phones use to vibrate. Inside the back rub seat are numerous vibrating instruments which utilize a blend of rollers, riggings and engines. The vibrating instrument can be somewhat unique in relation to seat to seat contingent upon the producer, yet the essential standard is the same.
Depending on the chair’s frame, the rollers, which are the part of the mechanism that actually creates the massage effect, can move in specific ways. Some move only up and down while others have a complex pathway.
Those that travel in multiple directions are placed on a mechanical arm which is able to move both up and down and sideways.
The entire movement is supported by electric motors. A microprocessor stores the predesigned movement patterns set by the manufacturer.
The intensity of the massage can be adjusted in two ways, depending on the system used by the manufacturer. One way is to adjust the closeness of the rollers to the frame. The other is to adjust the closeness of the entire frame to the user’s back.
Because most massage chairs are also recliners, the roller system is manufactured to work in multiple positions without unbalancing the chair.
Type No.2: Water-based massage chair
Another popular system used by massage chairs is the water system. In its back, the chair has an embedded water system which uses water jets to create the effect of a massage. The back of the chair is made from a waterproof material secured in place with bars. Without the bars, the material would bulge from the water. The only part of the chair with no bars is the neck and head area, where the bulging effect created by the water provides a nice cushion for the user. This material has a series of valves at the top, which allow it to fill with water.
The water travels to this material, often referred to as the membrane, from a system of nozzles, tubes and a pump. The water is pumped into the membrane and re-circulated so that it creates the massage sensation. The system also has a heating device, which enables the user to adjust the temperature of the water during the massage.
The water can also be pulsed so that it mimics a hand massage, similar to the one you get from a mechanical massage chair.
Type No.3: Airbag massage chair
Airbag massage chairs were inspired by practitioners who squeeze large muscles for a couple of seconds, then release them. This method is used to de-tense the muscles. Chair massage manufacturers have used airbags to create this effect. A chair can contain multiple airbags, which may or may not be connected to each other.
The areas targeted by airbags are the arms and legs, which can be squeezed without damaging the tissues.
One or multiple airbags are used to squeeze the arm/leg. They are filled with air by a system of pipes linked to a compressor. Depending on the chair, the airbags might be connected to one compressor or use multiple compressors so they inflate independently.
The more inflated the bag, the more compression is applied. Thus, the user can adjust the intensity of the massage by adjusting the level of inflation.
Some massage chairs mimic the tapping technique of hand massage by inflating and deflating the airbags at a high speed. When the airbags are inflated and deflated at a low speed, they mimic the kneading massage technique.
Many airbag massage chairs use a mix of mechanical and airbags systems to provide the best massage for the user.
Type No.4: A complete gadget
A back rub seat is something other than a chair with knead capacities; it’s a full-alternative device. The seat originates from the maker with predefined rub programs, which the client would then be able to change. The client can change the force of the back rub in all seats. More modern seats can be balanced with the goal that the back rub is customized to the individual utilizing the seat right now. This can prove to be useful, as one client may be 1.8m tall, while another may be 1.6m tall. The distinction in tallness will influence the client to see the back rub in an unexpected way.
There are likewise knead seats that utilization galvanic sensors to quantify the impact of the back rub and alter it in a hurry, contingent upon the body’s reaction.
Contingent upon the client’s needs, one can discover rub seats that utilization a vocal charge framework.
