What Is The APEX iCozy?
As the name suggests, this is a cute and cozy little massage chair. But don’t be fooled by its size, for big things come in small packages!
Simply said, the APEX iCozy is a compact, multipurpose massage chair. One person may use it for gaming, while another may use it as an everyday couch to watch TV and movies on. Because of its small and lightweight frame, the iCozy is also the perfect chair for a minimalist.
In terms of massage intensity, this bad boy can do about a 6-7 on a scale of 1-10. That’s actually quite decent for a chair this small!
6 Things To Know About The APEX iCozy!
#1 It’s An L-Track Chair!
This is probably my favorite thing about the APEX iCozy. For those of you who don’t know, “L-Track” is a term frequently used in the massage chair industry.
The image below shows exactly this. Notice the exaggerated “L” shape formed by the rollers? That’s why it’s called L-Track!
#2 It’s Incredibly Lightweight & Compact!
The APEX iCozy massage chair weighs a measly 55 lbs, which is about 25 kg give or take. That’s peanuts considering most traditional massage chairs weigh almost 5 times more!
Because it weighs so little, placement and relocation becomes a breeze. In other words, the chair can be easily moved or transported from one place to another.
That being said, this is the perfect chair for anyone living in a small area with space constraints.
#3 It Can Do 3 Different Massage Techniques
The APEX iCozy massage chair can perform 3 different techniques: kneading, tapping, and rolling.
In addition to the above 3 techniques, the APEX iCozy can also do a rolling massage along the entire length of the back, as well as a 3 level intensity thigh air compression massage.
#4 It Consumes 45 W Of Power!
One of the things that had me most impressed about the iCozy is its reduced power consumption. When it comes to finding a massage chair, most will completely forget to even look at power consumption. People seem to forget that power is required in order to operate all the “bells and whistles”!
To give you some perspective: a traditional S-Track massage chair with 38 airbags, and 7 motors will consume about 250 W of power. The APEX iCozy consumes about 5 times less!
#5 Its Got Heating Pads On Both The Upper & Lower Back!
This chair has heating elements on both the shoulder, upper back area, as well as the lower back, lumbar area. A heated seat not only feels good, it’s actually therapeutic and helps release tension in the muscles.
I personally have always found a heated back massage to be much more relaxing and effective than a back massage with no heat.
#6 It’s Very Much A Budget Option!
There’s those who are willing to spend thousands of dollars on a massage chair with the best rollers and the latest technology. And then there’s those who just want a very basic chair capable of delivering a simple massage and nothing more.
Currently priced at $599 on massage chairs, the APEX iCozy is very much a budget option. As mentioned previously, it’s the ideal chair for the minimalist consumer who doesn’t necessarily care about zero gravity, foot massage, 3D/4D rollers etc.

Here’s My Personal Take On The iCozy!
What I Like (Pros)
What I Don’t Like (Cons)
Is It Fair To Compare APEX’s iCozy To Other “Traditional” Massage Chairs?
First off when I say “traditional” massage chairs, I really mean chairs that are built specifically for the purpose of massage. To give you some perspective, below are images of what I call “traditional” massage chairs.
All of the above were designed with only one purpose in mind: massage.
While it can be used as a massage chair, it can also be used as a piece of furniture in a leisure, gaming, and even movie room. As such, I don’t think it’s fair to compare the iCozy to any other traditional massage chair. Its unique design makes it very different from all the others.
That being said, i’ll refrain from doing a full comparison of this chair to any other for this reason. I hope you can appreciate my analysis and thoughts to this regard. However, should you disagree, please leave me a comment and let me know you thoughts. I can’t admit to knowing everything, and your feedback will definitely help me improve!
