The Osaki OS-4000XT is a popular massage chair available on Costco. This review will examine the features and capabilities of the chair to help you determine if it is the right choice for you.
The massage provided by the OS-4000XT is satisfactory for its price point. The quad-style roller mimics the motion of human hands, using a 2D plane movement that follows an L-Track design, allowing for a full massage from the neck to the lower back and even under the glutes. The neck massage is noteworthy and feels great, however, some users have expressed disappointment with the intensity of the back massage. This can be a result of improper body scanning during setup.
The chair is also equipped with 24 airbags strategically placed throughout the chair, which provide an invigorating massage experience. However, the intensity of the air massage can be adjusted to one’s preference with the 5 intensity levels provided. The chair does not come with hip or lumbar airbags which may affect the effectiveness of body stretching programs.
The OS-4000XT chair offers a variety of massage techniques and 6 automatic programs to choose from, such as Neck/Shoulder, Strengthen, Relax, Thai, Recover, and Sleeping. The programs are well-coordinated and provide a satisfying experience. However, the chair automatically returns to an upright position after the massage program is finished, which may be inconvenient for those who want to nap afterwards.
The chair also has a Zero gravity recline feature, which is the ultimate position for a massage and nap. The ottoman raises up bringing your knees about to the heart level, taking the force of gravity and distributing it across your entire body, relieving stress and tension from your joints and spine. The lumbar heat feature is not effective and the heating function does not work well.
The ottoman of the Osaki OS-4000XT is designed with a spring-loaded mechanism, allowing you to adjust its length by pressing down with your feet. The chair is designed to be sleek and modern, which will complement most living rooms. It is made with high-quality materials that are durable and easy to clean, and comes with a 3-year warranty.
