Osim brand is best known for their U series of massage chairs. One of the most popular in the line is the uAstro2 model, which is an upgrade from their previous uAstro massage chair. The new model features more innovative features and a more aesthetic design. Its size and spaciousness could compare to Sogno Dreamwave, though it looks more simple and cushiony. Its inventive features include controlled massage programs, zero gravity recline, convenient customization and more. In our Osim uAstro2 review you can take a closer look at what this massage chair has to offer.
Full Body Relaxation
This massage chair is designed to provide soothing massage and deep relaxation for the entire body. It reaches up to top shoulder muscles and neck, the so called trapezius and deltoid areas. A roller system provides invigorating massage for the back. The chair is also equipped with a footrest for feet and calves massage, which is great for people who spend a lot of time on their feet. The armrest also features airbags that provide pressing and throbbing for a relaxing massage of the arms.
The uAstro2 massage chair is quite spacious and very cushiony. It is designed with ample space in the shoulder area. People who have broader shoulders will definitely benefit from this additional space.
There are 3 width settings, so you can tailor the seat back to fit your body. The S-Track moves the rollers following the curve of your spine.
The massage system of the chair uses a combination of rollers and airbags. Each is strategically placed to target all the pressure points.
The lower lumbar area features a heating pad. Its warmth melts the stress and tension, relaxing and loosening up the muscles in your lower back and making your body more receptive to all the benefits of the massage.
Auto Scan System
The Osim uAstro2 features a scanning system that before the start of each program scans your pressure points and identifies the precise contours of your body. So you get a massage personalized for your body type.
One of the innovative features that many massage chairs are designed with these days is zero gravity. The Osim uAstro2 chair also includes it. With a push of a button, you can recline into the most comfortable position at approximately 143 degree angle. In this position, the weight of your body is distributed over the entire body. So as the chair will provide deep tissue massage, you will be in complete relaxation and you will feel easing of pressure from head to toe.
