weight and height specifications for massage chairs

There are larger and smaller people. There are larger and smaller people. Some chairs will be better suited for medium to small individuals and some are suitable for big and tall people. We need our massage chairs to be able to accommodate us, no matter our size. In fact, it’s an essential feature to know about the chair you’re looking to purchase.

Most massage chairs that are coming out today offer at least a 5’2” to 6’ height range. There are some that offer extended height ranges, namely the Jupiter XL that goes up to 6’6” and the Novo XT2 and Super Novo go up to 6’9”. Between the Novo XT2 and the Super Novo, the difference is the seat width, which goes from 31” to 34”, and that the Super has been upgraded with Bluetooth and Alexa-Enabled technology that allows you to control the chair with just your voice.

This feature may seem like a small thing to think about, but it’s actually very important. The last thing that you want is to have your brand new chair delivered and set up in your home for you to not fit comfortably when you go to sit down. 

So, when you’re shopping for your massage chair, be sure to check out the technical specifications table that details the weight and height limitations for each chair. 

Additionally, the weight limit on most chairs is around 260 to 285 lbs. This is the suggested max weight. While you may use the chair if you weigh more than that, the manufacturers just want to advise that the external surfaces may wear faster and that the internal mechanics may be more susceptible to some damage. If you’re really looking for a large weight tested chair, look at the Luraco iRobotics i7 PLUS massage chair which has been rated up to 300 lbs.

With all this said, understanding those basic weight and height requirements is going to be the beginning of your massage chair purchase journey. This is also going to be affected by the quality of the chair. If you’re thinking that massage chairs provide a rather hefty price tag, remember that the quality of the chair is directly related to the cost.
