The Osaki OS-PRO Admiral vs the Titan OS-PRO Summit 

When analyzing massage chairs, especially moderately expensive chairs, some features can make or break your decision. When you look at the Titan OS-PRO Summit and the Osaki OS-PRO Admiral, the style of massage they offer and the additional features included contrast greatly. Which of these $4,300 massage chairs will give you the massage you want? Which is the right one for you? These chairs both provide L-Track massage, however, there are some additional features that differ.

Let’s start with understanding the most important feature- the massage track.

L-Track

l-track massage

As developments in massage chairs proceed, the S-Track was extended into the L-Track. The L-Track was initially seen years back and customers could see its ability to travel down the spine under the seat to the glutes and hamstrings. That chair was an Inada, the first manufacturer to demonstrate an L-Track prototype.

Inada took time to perfect their chair, however, and because of this Infinity launched its Iyashi model, the first commercially available L-Track massage chair.

More and more models have come out since then, and many have started to implement the extended L-Track for greater massage coverage.

S-Track vs. L-Track

When you’re examining each track, think of it this way. The L-Track is an extension of the S-Track that massages your seat and hamstrings. It can work the glutes, piriformis, and hamstrings just as effectively as the neck, mid-back, and lower back. Before the L-Track was created, these areas could only be reached by airbags.

If you suffer from tight or sore glutes or have sciatica or piriformis syndrome, an L-Track could be a great addition to your massage chair. And remember, an L-Track massage chair still delivers the benefits of an S-Track. After all, the L-Track is just an extension of the S-Track.

Now, let’s take a look at space-saving since that’s another important feature found in both chairs.

What Does Space Saving Mean?

Most massage chairs, particularly those with many features and leg massage ottomans, require a great deal of space in your home. And that’s before you lay back in them.

Standard chairs require up to three feet behind the backrest for the chair to reach full recline. Plus, depending on your home, you may also have an area where reclining a massage chair to its full length is impossible because of how much space that takes up. Many chairs have been engineered with a space-saving technique that slides the chair forward while it’s reclining, saving you space.

Both chairs talked about below offer this feature.

Who is a Space-Saving Chair Made for?

Space-saving technology was created to shrink the amount of space necessary to fully recline the massage chair. There are various models available at MassageChairPlanet.Com that can recline fully in just a few inches.

This is perfect when you have a smaller room or you simply don’t want your chair to take up so much space. Some massage chairs only require a few inches to recline while some will still need around 12 inches to do so. When you have limited space, this feature is huge. No pun intended.

Now, let’s take a look at what these specific chairs offer.

Titan OS-PRO Summit

os pro summit feature set

The Titan OS-Pro Summit massage chair offers an L-Track design that will start from your neck and work all the way down to your thighs. Zero Gravity, Mechanical Foot Rollers, Air Compression massage, Body Scan Technology, an Easy to Use Remote, Shoulder Massage are all incredible features present in this massage chair.

Features

L-Track

This reinforced L-Track design creates a massage that covers your entire torso. Starting with your neck, it reaches all the way down to the lumbar area and your upper thighs. This style of massage works your spine to attend to each individual disc.

Zero Gravity

Zero gravity, developed by NASA technology, creates the optimal position for a massage. It elevates your legs above your heart with two zero gravity positions. There is a relaxed recline that improves your massage and promotes relaxation, and then another position is an even greater recline that can even help with lower extremity swelling. This all can alleviate tension and pressure from your joints, shifting your weight to the back of the massage chair for pain relief.

Body Scanning

The rollers of this massage chair run the entire course of your body to map your shape. This also allows multiple users to enjoy the chair while still receiving a great massage experience, no matter what their size.

Foot Rollers

Reflexology rollers with two rows of spinning foot massagers provide a kneading-style massage that stimulates acupressure points in your feet. Plus, airbags simultaneously inflate to create a profound massage in your feet.

Cutting-Edge Air Massage Technology

Titan streamlined the airbags in the Pro-Summit and lowered the number of airbags, which has decreased the number of valves for a quieter chair. Plus, the surface area and the volume of the bags has been increased. That means there are fewer moving parts for a more reliable chair that still delivers an impressive massage.

Arm Air Massagers

Airbags around the arms create a compression massage that helps to increase circulation and provide relief from aches and pains.

Shoulder, Lumbar, & Hip Squeeze

In the upper portion of the chair, airbags inflate at independent times to twist and massage your upper body for an enjoyable deep stretch.

Calf & Foot Massage

Various airbags along the sides and back of the Pro Summit footrest inflate to apply a compression massage, and along the bottom of the footrest, massagers spin to apply a pin-point, kneading massage.

Space-Saving

Most massage chairs need a great deal of room behind them to recline. The Summit only needs an inch because the base slides forward as the chair reclines to preserve space. This is a great feature if space is an issue in your home.

Lumbar Heat

Many people suffer from lower back problems. The Pro Summit has two heating pads placed in the lower half of the backrest to loosen the lumbar area, alleviating aches and stiffness.

Auto Leg Scan

The footrest adjusts according to each user’s leg length, ensuring that the airbags concentrate on the desired areas. At the start of the massage, the footrest establishes where your legs are and once it feels pressure from your feet, it stops moving and begins your massage.

Massage Adjustment Options

This chair features three levels of massage roller intensity that can be adjusted on your back along with three different speeds. You’re also able to adjust the intensity of the airbags through five levels so that you can create the ultimate therapeutic massage.

Easy-to-Use Remote

The Summit remote is easy to use and the flip-down cover gives you access to the manual functions. The manual modes include kneading, tapping, shiatsu, rolling, combination, and punching. You’ll also find an auto recline option.

Now let’s look at the Osaki OS-PRO Admiral.

Osaki OS-PRO Admiral

One of the newest releases from Titan Chair, the Osaki OS-PRO Admiral with LED controls features an L-Track system with Zero Gravity, 16 auto programs, and full-body airbag massage. With the Admiral, the six massage styles, two inches of space-saving, lumbar and calf heat, and wonderful 3D massage will provide an incredible experience.

Features

Foot & Calf Massage

The OS-PRO Admiral has three spinning reflexology massage rollers in the foot massager that offer a soothing, kneading-style application. As the rollers spin, it stimulates acupressure points, and the airbags inflate to generate a much deeper massage along the bottoms of your feet. It also has ankle grip that holds your feet firmly. Plus, the Admiral has an extendable footrest that can stretch up to 7.1 inches automatically and is controllable through the remote.

Zero Gravity

The Admiral features zero gravity. Inspired by NASA technology, the zero gravity position provides the perfect setting for a massage, raising your legs above your heart for optimal comfort. When reclined, your weight is supported by the backrest, upping the intensity of your massage and relaxation.

Lumbar Heat

The Admiral has heating pads in the lumbar area and calves that enhance the effectiveness of your massage.

L-Track Massage

As the roller system massages the neck area, it continues down to the lower back and then onto the glutes and upper hamstrings. As you know, an L-Track offers everything an S-Track does but with a longer reach.

Body Scan

The Admiral performs a body scan to map the crucial areas of your neck and back to ensure correct pressure and alignment. It will detect your shoulder height, and all the settings can be manually adjusted.

Easy-to-Use LCD Remote

The Admiral remote has an easy view screen that displays all active functions where you can select the massage type, intensity, and location for each session.

Full Body Airbag Massage

Osaki's innovative design has created a space-saving massage chair that only requires two inches to fully recline.

USB Connector

For even more convenience, you can charge your smartphone, tablet, or USB device right from the chair.

Deciding Factors

best choice for you

When deciding between these two chairs, the type of massage experience you want will determine which chair is right for you. Both of these chairs offer very similar massages, features, and both provide L-Tracks. 

However, if you’re looking for a more rounded experience, you might want to go with the Admiral that offers Bluetooth and USB charging. You’ll also likely want to try out each chair so that you understand what the chair’s massage feels like. The Admiral massage chair is also a 3D massage chair, which means it will be much more intense of an experience as compared to the Summit.

What it all comes down to, as it does with most purchases, is your personal preference in a massage. What experience are you looking for and what chair delivers that experience for you?
