Osaki OS-Pro Alpina vs Osaki OS-4000XT Comparison
In our Osaki OS-Pro Alpina vs. Osaki OS-4000XT comparison, we will take a deep dive to find out what the similarities and differences are to help you decide between buying your new massage chair. First, let’s take a look at what is similar.
OS-Pro Alpina vs OS-4000XT: SIMILARITIES
First, let’s take a look at what is the same. Both the Osaki OS-Pro Alpina and the Osaki OS-4000XT massage chairs have an L-Track with quad style rollers. The L-Track starts at the neck, down your back, and underneath your glutes to the back of your hamstrings. The quad style rollers mimic the human hands for therapeutic relief. Every person’s body is different, and that is where the body scan comes in. Both massage chairs will scan your body to detect your trapezius muscles, back size, and shoulder blades for a consistent pressure massage in all the right spots.
Ache Sensor and Zero Gravity
The ache sensor is located in the armrests and helps the massage chair to detect points where you have tension to concentrate your massage where you need it most. The sensor customizes your massage to your daily needs for the best relief. Then kick back in the zero gravity position where you can relax, and the massage rollers can work deep into the muscle tissues to relieve tension and pain.
Located at the bottom of both massage chairs are reflexology foot rollers focus on the acupoint on the bottom of your feet. The airbags inflate to hold your feet in place and provide a compression massage to remove the aches and pains of work.
While you are relaxing in your new massage chair, turn on the lumbar heat to warm up your core and temporarily increases your circulation. The muscle fibers will loosen up, allowing the massage rollers to do their job even better, relaxing you even further. Sync up your favorite Bluetooth device and listen to relaxing music, your favorite podcast, or also guided meditation.
OS-Pro Alpina vs OS-4000XT: DIFFERENCES
The differences are where our Osaki OS-Pro Alpina vs. Osaki OS-4000XT comparison comes into play. Let’s take a closer looking at what is different between the two massage chairs.
While both massage chairs have automatic programs, the Osaki OS-Pro Alpina has twelve versus the six that come programmed with the Osaki OS-4000XT. The Alpina has general, recovery, sleeping, stretching, men’s health, vigor, deep tissue, wake up, health regimen, older vitality, woman beauty, sleep digest, and ache sensor. The 4000XT has neck/shoulder, strengthen, relax, Thai, recover, and sleeping.
Air Compression Massage
Both have full body air compression massage with the Alpina coming equipped with 22 airbags and the 4000XT coming equipped with 24 airbags. While the 4000XT may look like the clear winner here, that is not the case. The Osaki OS-4000XT airbags are located at the arms, hands, shoulders, sides of the calves, and the feet.
The Osaki OS-Pro Alpina, even though it has fewer airbags, they are the next generation. The next-gen airbags are the latest in technology and can cover more surface area with fewer airbags. The Alpina has airbags located at the arms, hands, shoulder, sides of the calves, and feet just like the 4000XT, but also has airbags located at the hips, lumbar, and back of the calves. The Alpina gives you more full-body compression massage over the 4000XT.
When it comes to the remote control, the Alpina wins here, in our opinion. The OS-4000XT has a handheld slim remote control with an LCD that displays what the massage chair is doing during its cycle. The buttons are easily accessible and intuitive to use. On the other hand, the Osaki OS-Pro Alpina comes equipped with the latest in technology, a touch screen tablet. The tablet has a simple user interface that anyone familiar with a tablet can use. You can even change the language between English, Chinese, Spanish, and even French.
If space may be an issue for you, the OS-4000XT needs only 2 inches from the backrest to the wall when fully reclined. The Alpina requires 5 inches, but that is still minimal compared to other chairs on the market that could need as much as 20 inches or more.
The Alpina also comes equipped with a blue chromotherapy light around located around the Bluetooth speakers. The Alpina also comes equipped with vibration in the seat.
While the Osaki OS-Pro Alpina massage chair retails at $5299, the Osaki OS-4000XT retails for only $4499. When they are on sale, you can usually find them for about the same price or the Alpina maybe a little more.
