Osaki OS-Pro Maxim Review
The Osaki OS-Pro Maxim has quickly become one of the best-selling mid-priced massage chairs on the market. The Pro Maxim has a perfect blend of features and a reasonable price tag that makes it one of the best buys on the market today. The Maxim features L-Track technology, touchscreen tablet remote, 12 auto programs, deep massage programming, zero gravity recline, space saving technology, and Bluetooth with Music Sync so you can see there are plenty of features.
We received our Osaki Maxim massage chair about a month ago, so we have had a chance to test it out, and we have reviewed the top features below.
L-Track Roller Technology
The Osaki OS-Pro Maxim is an L-Track massage chair, which is an extended roller track that can massage from the neck to the lower back, as well as into the seat to massage the glutes and the top of the hamstrings. The L-Track is perfect for anyone who has lower back, hip, and sciatic pain since the rollers can provide more massage coverage to the lower extremities. The L-Track on the Maxim offers a smoother massage when compared to other chairs like the Osaki OS-4000CS/LS models. The roller is smoother because the roller track on the Maxim is reinforced allowing the rollers to glides smoothly past the tailbone. The Maxim also has a great neck and shoulder massage that is deeper and more thorough than most massage chairs. The overall massage depth is med-deep depending on the program you choose. If you want a real deep tissue massage, you can remove the padding in the seat and increase the strength and intensity setting.
Full Body Air Compression
The Osaki Maxim has a full body air compression system that applies a massage to the shoulder, arms, hands, hips, seat, legs, and feet. The airbags are strategically placed throughout the chair to deliver a great compression massage which helps increase the circulation throughout the body. The air massage is used in many of the pre-programmed massages, and you can also use them in the manual massage settings. The air bags provide a subtle squeeze, which is nice because it's not too strong like in some chairs with low-quality air compression systems. We find the air massage to be a big plus on any massage chair. The air massage on the Maxim is more than satisfactory.
If your looking at the Osaki OS-Maxim and are trying to compare it to another massage chair in its price range, then you will want to take a look at the features below. These are the features that make the Maxim stand out and can help you decide if you are on the fence between two models.
Touchscreen Tablet Remote
The Touchscreen remote is the most significant difference if you're comparing L-Track massage chairs. The Maxim is the only massage chairs that have a touchscreen remote, which we find to be a big plus. The touchscreen remote is easy to navigate when compared to the standard LCD remote. You can select programs, and make manual adjustments much easier. Don't worry about the tablet remote being complicated, because it is very simple to use, and we highly recommend it.
Power Adjustable Ottoman
The Maxim has a power adjustable ottoman, which it is a pretty big deal if you are comparing massage chair. The adjustable ottoman on the maxim is powered and can be adjusted in/out for length. Other chairs have spring loaded ottomans like the Osaki OS-4000CS/LC which can put a lot of tension in the legs since you have to push it out while the springs pull back. The constant pressure can make the massage uncomfortable especially if you have long legs. This tension is not an issue with the Osaki Maxim since you can adjust it to the perfect leg length.
Space Saving Technology
If you are trying to fit your massage chair in a tight space, then the Osaki Maxim may be a perfect fit. The Maxim has space saving technology and only needs 4" behind the chair for a full recline. The space saving design is great since most massage chairs need 12"-18" for a full recline.
Bluetooth with Music Sync
We find that playing music during your massage can be quite pleasant, and the Osaki Maxim makes this easy to do. The Maxim has Bluetooth technology as well as speakers neck to your ears. This Bluetooth allows you to connect your smartphone and play music from your library quickly.
Massage Chair Expert Recommendation
The Osaki OS-Pro Maxim is our best-selling L-Track massage chair, and it has the perfect blend of features, quality, and price. If you're looking for an L-track massage chair that provides an excellent full body massage and at around $3,000, then you cannot go wrong with the Osaki OS-Pro Maxim.
