Massage chairs are a fantastic way to wind down and enjoy a massage in the comfort of your own home. Nowadays, top quality massage chairs come with a variety of advanced features such as S track and L track rollers, foot rollers, auto-programs, airbags, multiple massage techniques, and zero gravity positioning. The zero gravity positioning is one of the most popular massage chair features, but what does “zero gravity positioning” actually mean and why is it a highly sought out feature?
What is Zero Gravity Positioning?
The Zero Gravity position is inspired by NASA as it imitates the position of astronauts when they launch into space. The zero G position used by NASA was carefully designed by engineers to distribute weight evenly across the the body. During liftoff, astronauts’ bodies are put through immense stress and pressure as they leave the Earth’s atmosphere. Sitting in a reclined position helps their bodies endure the pressure of zero gravity and minimize pain.
How Does Zero Gravity Recline Work?
So how does zero gravity all translate into a full body massage chair? When zero gravity mode is selected, the massage chair eases the user into a reclined position where your thighs are relative to your back to maximize comfort and minimize pressure. There are typically two stages of zero gravity. The second stage brings the user further back placing the legs above the heart level. This helps to further increase blood flow which can help the heart and body.
What Are the Benefits of Zero Gravity Positioning?
Every feature and function built into a full body massage chair is designed to bring optimal comfort and relief to the person sitting in the chair. Zero gravity positioning, in particular, offers a number of benefits that are good for the body such as:
