- Positive Posture Brio+ Pros and Cons
The Brio Plus is an updated version of the original Brio, the successful first-generation model that has been phased out.
Brio+ is priced slightly lower than Positive Posture's other high-end massage chair, the Brio Sport. While the Sport model is aimed more toward fitness training and recovery, the Plus is designed more for general home use.
That being said, Brio+ has more than enough features to help your muscles recover and relax. It's an L-track chair that provides a true head-to-toe massage, touching on many areas that other chairs miss. Here are some of the top features that make the Positive Posture Brio+ stand out from other massage chairs.
These rollers can help soothe your body from your neck down to your gluteus muscles. If you are looking for a chair that feels like a human masseuse, the Brio+ may be just what you need.
A full-body air massage function on the Brio+ massage chair will massage your hands, arms, shoulders, hips, calves, and feet. This feature works by delivering air compression movements via inflating and deflating airbags in those particular areas. Since it involves airbags, you will get a gentle yet effective massage that's perfect for sore arms and legs.
The Brio Plus comes equipped with popular Zero Gravity reclining which can really help you take a load off at the end of a long day.
Aside from being relaxing, this position may help relieve pressure and can potentially help with the circulation of blood. You will need roughly 4 to 5 inches of clearance from the back of the headrest to the wall to be able to fully recline.
The Brio Plus has heat for the calves, feet, and lower back areas. The infrared heat can help relax stiff and achy muscles. It may also help enhance your blood circulation. Some chairs only have lower back heating which is better than nothing, but the Brio+ goes above and beyond with infrared heating that you are sure to enjoy.
The chair will accommodate users between a height range of 5'0″ to 6'5″, with a weight limit of 265 pounds. The large user height range is great if your family or place of business has a wide range of users.
Using Brio's intuitive remote, you can access 10 pre-programmed massage sessions. The auto programs are easy to pull up and get started on the user menu. All last about 15 minutes, aside from the Quick session, which lasts approximately 8 minutes:
- Full Body
- Neck & Shoulders
- Low Back
- Full Body Air Massage Function
If you prefer a more targeted massage and don't mind adjusting settings, the manual sessions will do the trick.
- 4D Massage Rollers for optimal control
- L-track design for maximum massage roller range
- Full body airbag massage
- Heated back massage rollers
- Heating for your feet and calves, as well as your lower back.
- Chromotherapy (light therapy) to calm your mood
- Has a USB port for plugging in your smartphone
- Zero gravity recline to mimick weightlessness
- Space saving technology
- Comes with easy-to-use controller
- Automatic reclining function
- Diamond stitch upholstery for those that like a luxury look
- User Height Range: 5'0" - 6'5"
- Maximum User Weight: 265 lbs.
- Not a real deep tissue chair, which isn't necessarily a con but could be if that's what you need.
- Only three colors to choose from (black, brown, beige)
- User cannot be taller than 6'5" or shorter than 5'0"
- User cannot weigh more than 265 lbs.
Based on our Positive Posture Brio Plus review, this chair is multi-faceted and can produce a high-quality massage experience. It offers plenty of versatility from its list of automatic programs, so you are sure to find a massage therapy selection that's perfect for your needs.
The Brio Sport may be the route to go if you live an active lifestyle and need additional recovery choreography. However, the Brio+ is a worthy next-generation upgrade that can give you relaxing massages over and over again.
We like the fact that the Brio+ comes from a well-known and respected company that takes care of their customers. Positive Posture is located in Colorado and should you need a replacement part for your Brio+ in the future they're known to have them in stock and ready to go.
