#1. 4D DEEP TISSUE ROLLERS. The Osaki OS-4D Pro Ekon Plus delivers a range of intensities, including the TRUE 4D deep tissue massage. The massage roller track is one of the longest neck to glute massages available. The 4D encompasses vertical/horizontal (2D), and from gentle to deep (3D) - and it is what we coined a TRUE 4D - which includes variable speed within the strokes, a more sophisticated programming providing quarter strokes and half strokes attacking the muscles from various different directions. But, the TRUE 4D - allows the user to adjust the depth DURING the auto-programs! This chair is one of the few massage chairs that allows you to set a general depth (1-5), and then select and use any auto-program at a depth that is comfortable. In other models, the depth can not be adjusted DURING the programs.
What does that mean? If a program is too deep or aggressive, the user must either select a different program, or go into manual mode and select from the techniques and depth. This means many of the auto-programs, which are professionally choreographed to prepare and warm up the muscles, then proceed with the type of programming (Refresh/Rejuvenate), and then usually ending in a percussive technique.
#2. L-TRACK. Super long L-Track carries the massaging rollers from the base of the skull in an L-Shape, under the seat for penetrating glute and upper hamstring massage - offering approximately 35% more massage coverage than you received with S-Track (short track) designs. For individuals seeking relief from sciatic nerve pain, or for those seeking recovery, the L-Track design can be very beneficial.
#3. CALF KNEADING & ROLLING. Another key, and unique feature of the Ekon Plus, is the Calf Kneading. Osaki's designers really focussed in on the user's lower extremeties with the Ekon Plus. Extraordinary foot rollers, air compression in the foot and calfs, and in the calves. Many massage chairs include air bags to massage the calves, but the Ekon integrates rollers into the calf - for actual kneading.
