What Is a Massage Chair Body Scan?

Are you in the market for a massage chair with the best design, features, and technology? If you’ve already done a little research, you know that the best full-body massage chairs are powered in part by body scanning technology.

 

Massage chairs with full-body scanning technology are designed to give you a precise and targeted massage. That means that the scanners can detect your height to maintain the massage solely on your body. A massage chair equipped with a body scanner can make you feel like you’re at an appointment with your favorite massage therapist. It allows you to receive a personalized massage right at home every day. Here’s a complete guide to help you discover the best therapeutic massage chair for your needs.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

The scanner works by using a pressure sensor. It starts massaging at the bottom of your back and slowly moves up in a rubbing motion. When the massager reaches the top of your back, the chair detects that and can begin moving back down again. This way, your chair doesn’t waste time massaging the empty area above your head.

 

If the massage chair includes a leg massage, it may feature leg-length scanning. When you sit in a massage chair, you manually extend the legs to the proper position by applying pressure on the spring movement mechanism. If your chair has leg-length body scanning, it will automatically contract until it contacts your feet.

 

2 TYPES OF SCANNING

 

1)    BACK SCANNING

The mechanism in the back of the chair that does all the rolling, kneading, tapping, and pushing will have a sensor that detects pressure. As it rolls up/down the back, it will reach the top of the shoulders until it detects no pressure. This will be the top of its massage cycle and will stop at this point, depending on the individual’s height. Since every person’s bottom is in the same spot on the chair, the back mechanism may only measure the top portion or top half of the back.

 

2) LEG LENGTH SCANNING


Massage chairs that have a foot massage fall into three categories. Motorized, Spring-loaded, and Mechanical Scanning. Since leg length varies by height, the chair leg rest must accommodate in some way.

 

Motorized Scanning

Floridian Expert 4D Plus Massage Chair have a button on the remote that will extend or retract the leg rest from its default position, allowing you to set the distance as your desire.

 

Spring-load Scanning

The most common type of scanning. Allows the user to adjust the position by simply pushing. With Floridian Galaxy 4D Massage Chair, you will push with your feet to extend the leg rest. Spring-load leg rest also allows for much greater distance and much taller users.

 

Mechanical Scanning

The leg rest will extend and then retract on its own until it senses pressure or push back from the feet and stop.

PERSONALIZE YOUR BODY SCANNING MASSAGE CHAIR

Because the body scanning massage chair uses an algorithm to collect data on your back and body, they can use that data to create the perfect massage for your needs. Not only that, but you can often put in manual input to adjust the massage to your liking.

 

If you see a massage therapist regularly, you know how important it is to find the right type of massage for you. It can often take months to find the right massage therapist who applies the right amount of pressure in the perfect spot. Thankfully, body-scanning massage chairs can learn what’s best for you very quickly and apply as much pressure as you want.
