This is a comparison of the Sanyo DR 7700 and the Omega Montage Premier massage chair. The Sanyo is known for its high-tech features such as a physical shape sensor and its stiffness detection system. Omega massage is known for strong effective massage nuru massage therapy and a complete massage experience. Both of these brands have full massage chair lines. The Montage Premier and the DR 7700 are both the top-of-the-line for both massage chair manufacturers.
When you first sit in the Sanyo DR 7700 and it is on a smaller frame. The Montage Premier on the other hand seems to more envelop your body more comfortably. The Montage can accommodate much taller users than the DR7700. However, when people who were 5 foot one tried the Montage massage chair, they thought they also fit into the chair well.
Let’s start with an advanced feature of the Sanyo DR 7700 massage chair. This massage chair comes with a physical shape sensor. This sensor detects you are body position in the chair and will adjust the massage is the body is shifted. This helps keep the massage mechanism aligned with your body throughout the massage treatment.
The Omega Premier massage recliner comes equipped with a body scan to detect key points in the back and shoulder. Each of the automatic massage programs starts with a body scan before commencing a full body massage. These massage program is adjusted based on the individual regions of the user.
The Sanyo DR 7700 massage recliner also has a stiffness detection system. A mouse like device is used to read certain stress signals area it records your pulse rate and perspiration. The mouse must be held during the massage to take the reading. The stiffness detection system works with the LCD to point out the areas detected.
Omega provides five automatic massage programs. Each of these programs is based on a particular theme. These automatic programs provide invigorating and effective massage therapy. The Montage massage recliner provides for deep tissue penetration and relief.
The Sanyo DR 7700 massage chair comes with four automatic massage programs. Each of these automatic programs runs the full massage chair. Each massage course is approximately 15 minutes. The massage courses range from shiatsu to gentle tapping. The massages are soothing but seemed to lack a bit in penetration.
The Montage Premier also provides additional therapeutic treatments beyond the massage therapy. The Montage Premier has full body heaters. The DR 7700 has a heater only for the soles of the feet. Heat is commonly applied to help reduce swelling and to enhance blood flow.
The Montage Premier comes with lower body traction for stretching and relieving the legs and lower back. The Sanyo DR-7700 offers the zero gravity position. This position is to help take the most pressure off of the spine. Although, we liked the zero gravity position, I did not find I enjoyed the massage in the same position.
The Montage Premier also has and MP3 music player with headphones. This provides a relaxing environment which dramatically increases the effectiveness of the massage. One cannot underestimate the impact of relaxing your mind during a massage. If your mind is under stress come in it will hold tension over the body. The mind needs to relax and release this tension. This will ensure that the massage better penetrates the muscles.
In comparing the DR-7700 to the Omega Montage Premier, we find that the Montage Premier massage chair provides superior effective massage therapy. The Sanyo massage chair has some interesting technological features, but we feel that the therapeutic features of the Montage Premier provide a more comprehensive massage treatment. The Montage Premier massage chair by Omega provides for the best overall massage experience.
