What Is The Osaki OS 7200H?

Osaki has quite the selection of entry level, mid, and high end massage chairs. OS 7200H is an excellent example of a mid level chair. It’s less than $4K and boasts a ton of cool features. As far as intensity is concerned, you can expect a fairly strong massage.

If you’ve been reading my previous reviews, you’ll notice a lot of similarities between each massage chair. However as similar as they may be, there are still variations. These subtle nuances are very important to understand because in the end they make all the difference! I’ll do my best to highlight these “small” variations throughout this post.

 

6 Key Features Of The Osaki OS 7200H

#1 Total Of 51 Airbags!

If there’s one feature that distinguishes this chair from the rest, it would be this. The OS 7200H boasts a total of 51 airbags! That’s the most number of airbags I’ve yet to see in an Osaki model. For those who don’t know what airbags are and what purpose they serve:

 Airbags simply inflate with compressed air to then provide a compression style massage to surrounding muscle. 

Now, having more airbags isn’t necessarily a good thing. In my opinion, having an increased number of airbags means:

    • Obviously A Lot Of Compression!—Which is a good thing if you’re a fan of compression massage. I personally think compression massage is very effective and relaxing at medium to low intensities. High intensity compression is definitely not my thing!
    • You Need More Valves & Pumps—Needed to inflate all 51 airbags. As a result, you may see a slight increase in power consumption.

This is why airbag design and selection can be a lot more complicated than you think. I always say it’s all about finding the right balance instead of simply adding more.

All that being said, the 51 airbags definitely makes the OS 7200H massage chair very good at compression! The 51 airbags have been strategically placed in different areas where the rollers are unable to reach. The picture below shows airbag placement.

#2 31” S-Track Rollers

Rollers and airbags are 2 very integral components to a massage chair. I would even argue that rollers are more important than airbags, simply because they are responsible for delivering a variety of massage techniques (kneading, rolling, tapping etc.).

 The roller system is in my opinion the most critical component in any massage chair! 

That being said, the Osaki OS 7200H massage chair has a 31” S-Track roller system. What in the heck is that!? Let’s break it down so you can understand:

    • 31” Track Span—31” is the track span, or the distance traversed by the rollers. Twin rollers begin the massage at the neck, and then slowly make their way down the back until they reach the lower back at a distance of 31”. Pretty simple right?
    • S-Track—Fancy way of saying the rollers will mimic the backs’ curvature i.e. since our spine is “s” shaped, twin rollers will take this into account as they traverse the back.

A pretty decent roller system in my opinion, although I am a little disappointed with the 31” span. For a mid end chair, I expect a little more. It does feel like Osaki gave more emphasis to airbags for this particular chair.

#3 2 Stage Zero Gravity Recline

Ahh yes zero gravity….everyone’s favorite! Notice how tons of manufacturers are all starting to incorporate zero gravity into their designs? Nissan’s starting to use them in their cars, Emirates’ first class seats are capable of reclining to zero gravity, and even sofa set (and chair) manufacturers are taking note!

 First and foremost, what is zero gravity? 

In layman terms, zero gravity is a seating position where your legs are elevated with respect to your heart, such that a torso to leg angle of about 128 degrees is formed (source: emassagechair). The benefits to sitting in such a position include increased circulation, expanded lung capacity, and reduced tension on the spine and muscles.

The Osaki OS 7200H has 2 zero gravity positions to choose from: stage 1 and 2. Stage 1 is the “normal” zero gravity position, and stage 2 is a more reclined version of stage 1.

 What’s with all the buzz surrounding zero gravity? Is it worth the hype? 

I’ve used zero gravity recline on my massage chair several times, and I think it’s a nice feature to have. I feel it’s the closest you can get to actually laying down as you would in a “traditional” massage. What’s also nice is being able to watch TV while being reclined in zero gravity!

#4 Auto Foot Rest & Leg Scan

The foot rest in the OS 7200H automatically extends/retracts based on an individuals leg length.

 Important to note that this isn’t a feature common to all Osaki chairs! 

In fact most older Osaki models employ a spring loaded foot rest instead, where you have to manually push down to hold position. Having said that, I think an automated foot rest is definitely a plus!

Note: footrest length can also be manually adjusted using the remote.

#5 6 Auto Massage Modes To Choose From

Osaki OS 7200H features a total of 6 automatic massage modes. I’ve summarized all 6 below:

    • Recovery—A mode tailored to massage the entirety of the back and neck areas using different massage strokes.
    • Lower Back—Interestingly enough this isn’t just a lower back massage, it’s also a calf massage too. Think of it as a lower body type massage!
    • Muscle Relief—Starts of nice and slow and then gets pretty intense later on! Full body massage with a lot of emphasis on the lower back area.
    • Upper Body—Uses a combination of techniques including compression to mostly target the head, neck, and shoulder areas.
    • Wake Up—Another full body mode, but this one’s definitely at a lower intensity. A good choice for anyone looking for a light, relaxing massage!
    • Anti Stress—Full body mode that focuses mainly on the neck area by using 5 different massage techniques!

A good selection of preset modes to pick from that offer varying intensity. Osaki usually never disappoints when it comes to auto massage options!

#6 MP3 Friendly Stereo System (And LED Lighting)

You can connect your smart phone via auxiliary cable to the massage chair sound system. The OS 7200H has speakers located on either side of the shoulder massagers, so expect a boom!

 What’s also pretty neat is that the massage syncs to the beat of your music! 

But truth be told, this isn’t something that would influence my buying decision. It’s nice to have, but definitely not something that’s absolutely required in my opinion.

Here’s What I Think About It!

What I Like About It (Pros)

The Perfect Chair For Air Compression!
Best Air Compression Chair!If you’re looking for a chair that’s specifically good at air compression massage, this is it! 51 airbags filled with compressed air is probably enough to knock your socks off. What’s also neat is you have the ability to vary airbag intensity to 5 different levels. In my opinion you’d be hard pressed to find a better compression massage chair in the market.
It's Not That Heavy!
At 231.1 Lbs, It's Fairly Light!I was surprised to learn that this thing only weighs about 231.1 lbs. I’ve seen massage chairs with half as many airbags that weigh significantly more. Weight is more important than you think. It’s important for assembly and installation obviously, but also a factor when it comes to moving or relocating the chair. If it’s heavy, it’s gonna be a pain to move!
Heating Pads On The Shoulder Area!
Heating Pads On The Shoulder Area!Here’s one thing I really like about the OS 7200H. Unlike other chairs, the OS 7200H has 2 heating pads located on either side of the shoulder. Most chairs I’ve seen have 2 heating pads located on the lumbar/lower back area. I prefer heat on the shoulders mostly because my muscles in that area are a lot tighter and stiffer, and heat will help loosen them up tremendously.
It Does Head Massage!
Head & Neck Massage With Removable Padding!Osaki OS 7200H is one of the few chairs that will do a head massage. How does it achieve this? There are 2 head airbags located on either side of the head cover that will inflate with compressed air. There’s also 2 neck airbags on either side directly below the head airbags that will also inflate. Head cover padding can be removed for even more intensity!

What I Don’t Like About It (Cons)

31'' Track Leaves A Bit To Be Desired
As mentioned previously, I am a little disappointed with the 31” roller track span. It’s nice that Osaki have taken air compression seriously, but it almost seems that they forgot about the rollers. 31” is what I’d expect to see in an entry level chair, but then again maybe my expectations are higher than most!

 

 

Who Should Buy The Osaki OS 7200H Massage Chair?

To make it easy, I’ve narrowed it down to 2 types of people. If you’re one of the 2, you may want to consider this chair!

Anyone Who Loves Compression Massage
Make no mistake about it, OS 7200H is very much a compression oriented massage chair. If you’re a fan of compression style massage, then it absolutely makes sense to get it. On the flip side, if you prefer roller based kneading and tapping techniques, there’s better chairs out there at a similar price; TP-8500 and Pro Maxim are great examples of this. I’ve written comprehensive reviews for both which you can check out by clicking the links.

 

Anyone Who Can Afford $3K+
It ain’t cheap! Then again, it does come jam packed with all the bells and whistles. If your budget allows a spend of about $3500, then this is one of the many chairs you ought to consider.

 

Best Place To Buy!

With an investment as large as this, you should avoid buying on an impulse.
