"I've been living with lower back pain since a 2011 injury and 2012 surgery. After just a few weeks of regular sessions with the chair I now spend most of my days pain free. Wonderful product!"

Patented SL-Track Roller
Ogawa is one of the first companies to pioneer the extended L-track that we see in many massage chairs today. They were able to combine the traditional S-track with an L-track, so that the massage robot doesn’t lack in massage quality. Longer doesn’t always mean better and Ogawa took this very seriously to preserve the quality of the massage with the extended track. Their patented technology is smoother, more accurate, and more durable than any other chair in a similar price. The Active L Plus SL-track is 47 inches long, and will massage from the neck, all the way down to the glutes.
Air Compression Massage
Ogawa has incorporated their multi-layered airbag massage system into the Active L Plus. This compression technology will squeeze and hold muscles similar to a Swedish style massage. The amount of layers help the air compression be more effective, as well as help with programs like stretching to make the massage more effective. The upholstery of the Active L Plus makes the air compression massage very comfortable and soothing. There are 44 total air massage chambers in the Active L Plus.
9 Pre-Programmed Massages
Ogawa has incorporated many of their signature massage sessions or programs into the Active L Plus. Ogawa employs over 800 massage professionals, scientists, and engineers, to come up with the most effective and lifelike massage sessions. These programs give a user an easy way to get the exact massage they are looking for, as well as focus on pain areas or recovery. Some of the most talked about programs are the Stretch program, Spine Care, and Glute Therapy.

The Active L Plus has 2 pre-programmed Zero Gravity positions. The Zero Gravity position will relieve the pressure off of the spine and help put the body into a natural relaxation position. You can easily get into this position at the touch of a button, and it is incorporated in many of the pre-programmed massages. You can also find the exact angle you want to be in so you can relax, read, or enjoy watching TV.
The Active L Plus has reflexology foot massage for the bottoms of the feat. The massage roller is designed to activate certain pressure points on the feet, as wells as mimic what a person would get from a massage therapist. There are many chairs that foot rollers that aren’t very effective and Ogawa has one of the best designs of any chair. The foot rollers can be turned on or off at any time, and are complimented by the air compression in the ottoman.

Ogawa is the only brand that has put such a large emphasis on the usability and user experience of their chairs. The Remote is a very important feature in that it allows the user to communicate with the chair to get exactly what they want from their chair. The Active L Plus has an easy to use remote that is easy to learn and navigate.
