The Luraco Legend PLUS vs. the D.Core Cirrus
When you’re contrasting the Luraco Legend PLUS and the D.Core Cirrus, knowing what sets them apart is crucial to your decision making. Which of these massage chairs will give you the experience you want? You’ll find an L-Track in both chairs, but their additional features, as well as the track itself, do have some differences.
Let’s look at the important features- the rollers and the track.
3D Massage Rollers
A 3D massage system takes everything a traditional, 2D system offers further and is found in the two chairs we’ll be discussing below. The 3D system works deeper into your shoulders and back, getting into the muscles for a more intense, more productive massage.
These rollers can also protrude further out from the track and reach places that the average chair usually can’t, including the upper neck and between the shoulders.
The rollers can move left and right and up and down, and in and out. This action helps to replicate the action of human hands. With 3D massage chairs, you can adjust the intensity of the massage to as intense or gentle as you like with some limitations based on the chair itself. If more than one person will be using the chair this can be beneficial.
First things first, what is a massage track, really? Basically, a massage chair has a long roller track that extends from the head/neck section down to the lower back and, in some chairs, the glutes and hamstrings. This track is similar to a train track because it guides the rollers up and down the back of the chair like train wheels like over the ground.
When you’re getting a massage from a chair, these rollers do most of the work, particularly on your back. The rollers glide along the track and based on its shape they can work in different areas.
Those different areas depend on whether the track is an S or an L.
As developments in massage chairs improved over time, the S-Track saw an extension called an L-Track. The L-Track was showcased years back and showed the ability to travel down the spine as well as beneath the seat to reach the glutes and hamstrings. That chair was an Inada, the first manufacturer to offer an L-Track prototype.
Inada took time to perfect their chair, and so Infinite Therapeutics, or Infinity, introduced its Iyashi model that became the first commercially available massage chair with an L-Track. This can be something to keep in mind when you’re shopping these two chairs since Infinity was the first to offer an L-Track.
S-Track vs. L-Track
When you’re comparing tracks, think of it this way. The L-Track is an extension of the S-Track that addresses your glutes and the top of the hamstrings. It’s still one continuous roller track that mimics the shape of your spine like an S-Track does.
The rollers work the glutes, piriformis, and hamstrings with the same attention and care as the neck, mid-back, and lower back where previously these areas could only be massaged by airbags. When you have tight or sore glutes, or if you have piriformis syndrome or sciatica, an L-Track massage chair can be very beneficial.
Something to keep in mind when you’re looking at chairs that most people don’t realize is that when you’re buying an L-Track chair you’ll still receive the benefits of an S-Track since the L-Track is just an extension on the S-Track.
Now, let’s discuss what each chair offers and give you a better idea of which one will be right for your needs.
The Luraco Legend PLUS gives all users an incredible massage experience. This chair can accommodate users up to 6’2” with a maximum weight of 250 pounds. Top-notch technology has been outfitted throughout the chair to help you feel more relaxed and refreshed with every session.
3D + L-Track Massage Roller Technology
The Legend PLUS offers wonderful 3D technology with roller heads that protrude from the track to better massage areas where the spine curves away from the chair, including the neck, shoulders, and lower back. The L-track system gives the roller the ability to massage from your neck all the way down to your glutes, ensuring that a revitalizing massage awaits every inch that touches the chair. There are five levels of intensity control that give you the ability to adjust the massage from soft to deep tissue.
The remote is much like a smartphone and includes several menus that offer the most options to customize your massage. The Legend PLUS also features nine automatic programs and five levels of intensity control so that you can create a soft or deep massage each session.
Accommodate Heights up to 6’2”
Getting a massage from a chair that isn’t designed to fit someone your size will result in a poor experience. Thankfully, the Legend PLUS is designed for people up to 6’2” and 250 lbs. This will ensure that a larger user can get a full-body massage experience.
Intelligent Sensor Technology
The Legend PLUS features Intelligent Sensor Technology that measures your size and shape. It is vital that a massage chair adjusts to the shape of each user, and the Luraco technology allows this chair to do just that and map your back to position the rollers correctly.
Noise Reduction Technology
Luraco has incorporated Noise Reduction Technology so that your massage is as peaceful as possible.
The Legend PLUS massage chair features one of the most comprehensive compression massages with airbags positioned in the hands, arms, shoulders, back, hips, seat, legs, calves, and feet.
Stretching programs allow the chair to access muscles that other chairs frequently can’t reach and provide relief, so you truly get a full-body massage experience. This also helps work out knots in your back and legs so that the massage has a greater effect.
Double Foot Massage Rollers
In each footrest are two high-quality massage rollers. These rollers apply a reflexology massage to the soles of your feet as the air cells offer a compression massage to get all of the knots out in your feet. When you’re on your feet all day or just want to increase your relaxation, this feature is fantastic.
Full-Body Heat Therapy
The Legend PLUS features a full-body heat therapy system with several heating elements in the footrest and throughout the back. These apply gentle heat soothe and loosen your muscles. You can adjust the heat through five levels.
Zero gravity offers incredible benefits at the push of a button. As you recline back, your legs life above your heart so that gravity's influence is reduced on your spine and joints, allowing them to decompress and relaxing the surrounding muscles. This can create a sort of weightless feeling and focuses most of your weight on the backrest, which improves the intensity of your back massage significantly.
Made in America
Luraco massage chairs are the first and only medical massage chair brand that researches, develops, and builds their chairs right here in the USA.
Now let’s take a look at the D.Core Cirrus.
Featuring patented True Shiatsu Action and patented Wave Arrays, Cirrus provides a more life-like and therapeutic massage than any other chair on the market. True Shiatsu Action simulates the finger structure and organic movements of a massage therapist, while the Wave Arrays – found in Cirrus’ arms and legs – makes Cirrus the first and only massage chair to feature mechanical massage units for the arms and calves. Complete with real black walnut trim and soothing heat, Cirrus is the ultimate combination of therapeutic massage and luxury design.
True Shiatsu Massage
D.Core’s patented True Shiatsu Action simulates the finger and joint structure and organic movements of a massage therapist to deliver a remarkably life-like massage that alleviates pain and discomfort, increases mobility, and enhances overall wellness.
9 Automatic Programs
9 Pre-programmed massages make it easy to jump in the chair and get started right away. Some of the programs offered: Quick, Master Shiatsu, Recovery, Circulation, Morning, Night, Neck and Shoulders, Lower Back, and Air Focus.
- Quick- Highly recommended for people with a limited massage time. This setting can relieve fatigue from the neck to the ankles in a short time.
- Master Shiatsu- A program to relive the whole body with the unique functional core shiatsu method. By shiatsu, gently rubbing the acupoints inside the body.
- Recovery- A program to alleviate general fatigue. From the root of the neck to the ankle, gently rubbing the acupoints of the whole body without omission.
- Circulation- focuses on boosting circulation by massaging toward the heart.
- Morning- using the centripetal method that directs blood flow from the fingertips and toes back to the heart, the chair massages across the venous flow. Use this to relax and revitalize your body.
- Night- this uses the centrifugal method to circulate blood from the heart to the extremities by massaging across the artery flow. This program is recommended when you want to calm down for bedtime.
- Neck and Shoulders- massages the neck stem, neck, and shoulders to help eliminate fatigue and ease tension after a long day.
- Lower Back- A program for centralized massaging of the low back and waist. This program is recommended when the lower back is tired and for relaxing around the lower back.
- Air Focus- A program for centralized massaging of the ends of the body, such as the fingertips and toes. Promote systemic blood circulation by stimulating the ends of the body.
Infinity Wave Array
D.Core’s Cirrus features Patented Wave Arrays in the arms and legs, making it the only chair on the market to offer mechanical rollers in the forearms and calves.
The L-Track is 35.4”, starting from the neck to down through the glutes and hamstrings.
D.Core’s design and use of real black walnut wood evoke the Japanese sense of beauty- a love of natural settings that – like a massage – allow you to escape the rush of everyday life and embrace a calmness that quiets your heart and mind.
When reclined in zero gravity, the complete weight of your back is supported by the backrest, maximizing the intensity of your massage and improving blood flow thanks to the lift of your legs above your heart.
The system utilizes 41 air cells throughout the chair to massage the shoulders, arms, glutes, calves, and legs.
Calf and Foot Rollers
The D.Core Cirrus features six calf rollers and two rollers in each of the footrests.
Both of these chairs extend similar massage experiences and have similar features. They both provide L-Tracks, 3D massage, and dual foot rollers. They will also both provide you with a zero-gravity experience and a great massage, but which one is for you?
The Legend PLUS offers heat, is manufactured in the U.S., and the noise reduction makes it a very quiet chair. The Cirrus is an especially intense chair, looks incredibly different from the traditional massage chair, and is the only one to provide rollers in the arm massage.
These are both large chairs and have a great maximum height and weight range. The D.Core is meant to be a very intense massage and the look is something brand new. If you want something different and powerful, this is the chair for you. If you want something that can be adjusted a bit more and something with the Made in America stamp, you’ll want to take home the Luraco.
