- Infinity IT-8500 Plus Pros and Cons
Spinal Correction & Waist Twist
The spinal correction feature utilizes powerful stretching techniques to extend and decompress the spine to help alleviate back pain. As an alternative, the Infinity 8500 Plus also provides waist twisting, which is a milder choice for back pain release.
Heating modules are located in the back of the chair at the lumbar region. The heating elements will help loosen the lumbar muscle tissue while relaxing any tight or sore muscles. Heat therapy is a feature that many massage chairs come equipped with due to the effectiveness.
This provides a deeply relaxing massage to eliminate pain between the inter-vertebral discs. All the while, a steady and rhythmic massage releases tension, soothes fatigued muscles, and restores a healthy state of wellness.
The extension programs provide strong kneading and stretching functions that effectively decompress the entire body. During this full-body stretch, the airbags grip your shoulders and legs as the massage chair reclines; thus, it soothes and relieves the spine.
Four-Wheel Roller Mechanism
With four high-tech rollers, the Infinity IT-8500 Plus massage chair can ultimately provide pressurized massage strokes to thoroughly knead out muscle tension. It begins at the cervical spine and goes through to the lumbar region with long, continuous strokes.
This technique can remove stiffness, fatigue, and built-up tension in the back while improving overall blood flow.
Body Scan Technology
The chair scans the body to pinpoint the shape of your back, spine, and curves. This scan ensures the massage rollers hit all pressure points. The Infinity IT-8500 Plus will automatically begin to adjust the rollers to tailor your massage to your particular body type.
Total Sole Reflexology Foot Massage
The IT-8500 Plus foot roller technology gives attention to vital pressure points on the feet that are linked to other areas of the body while replicating reflexology techniques.
Airbag Compression Therapy
The 8500 Plus's airbags are located in the buttocks, legs, feet, shoulders, neck, back, and arms. These airbags inflate and deflate to provide a thorough full-body massage with multiple different intensity levels to mimic the actions of a live therapist. The sensation to the muscles will loosen tension in the body.
A zero gravity setting promotes deeper breathing and further relaxation to allow the rollers to give a deep tissue massage. This technology was originally developed by NASA to relieve spine compression and tension during shuttle launches.
The Infinity 8500 Plus applies this same concept by elevating your knees above your heart to decompress the spine and allow your body to release all of its weight and tension into the chair.
This will allow your body to form a sense of weightlessness that helps relieve tension, stress, and muscle discomfort. Also, with your legs elevated, it can help improve blood flow and circulation.
Connect your Apple or Android device via Bluetooth to the immersive speakers that are strategically placed in the headrest of the 8500 Plus. This allows you to enjoy your favorite downloaded music, nature sounds, guided meditations, and ambient soundscapes.
The chair also has a nifty rhythm feature that syncs massage treatments to the beat of your music.
