Osaki TP-8500 Review

The Osaki TP 8500 is a great classic product from Osaki. It’s got modern massage technology and and provides a fairly strong massage (8 / 10). The design of this model is unique and the features are abundant. If you want to invest into your relaxation, this might be the chair you’re looking for.

Osaki TP 8500 – Features and Benefits

One thing that’s unique about this chair is the quick buttons. Right beneath the arm massager, there are a series of 5 buttons and a usb port where you start the massage and change the position quickly without fussing around with the remote. The usb is nice for charging your phone, mine seems to be always low battery!

When you first assemble and plug in this machine, you’ll hear some cranking noise. That’s the computerized body scan working to cater the massage just for you. It is able to detect where your head is so the rollers don’t go past it. It also optimizes other variables of the body size and shape.

The track is SL-track or simply L-track that is 53 inches in length. It follows the curvature of the body and massages go all the from the neck to the butt / hamstring area. The rollers are the standard quad-type rollers which has the best performance for mimicking the human hand.

The LCD remote is a cool red and black schema and has small buttons that are intuitive and helpful. It also has a small portrait of a person laying down on the chair so that it’s clear what the buttons are doing.

There are 4 air bags for the upper body, 8 bags for the lower arm, 4 bags for the calf rest, and 10 bags for the feet. A total of 26 air bags. Also, 7 pieces of solenoid valves and 1 air pump. The number of air bags is a lot less than the average but this is possible because of Osaki’s revolutionary engineer team. We find it much soothing and effective with lesser number of air bags.

The cool thing about this chair is that it has an ankle massager. Also the foot massager isn’t a standard scraping roller. It’s a disc shaped roller with little balls protruding outward and it rotates in clockwise fashion. It’s a pretty effective foot roller.

Also the head pillow is adjustable. This adds another way to reduce / increase intensity on top of the remote functionality.

I liked that there are soft covers on the chair that are removable and washable.

The zero gravity and space saving technology is pretty standard among most Osaki models. You can place the chair 3 inches from the wall and have it operate perfectly.
