Review of the Human Touch HT 1650 Massage Chair Leave a comment

The HT1650 massage chair recliner is one of the top of the line Human Touch massage loungers on the market today. We will put the HT 1650 through an evaluation in five key areas. We will give it a rating in each and sum up the total. Check out how this truly unique massage chair stacks up.
Warranty & Customer Service: Let us get the warranty coverage out of the way first, so we can look at the more exciting elements like features and functions. What kind of warranty coverage do you get with this high end massage chair? Actually, you get solid coverage with 5 years on the structure or frame of the chair. Parts and Labor are covered for 3 years and in-home technician service is covered for 90 days. This compares favorably with the other manufacturers. Customer service is good and response times are relatively short. This massage recliner gets a 17 for warranty coverage.
Comfort & Ergonomics: Comfort is extremely important in the case of the 1650. This leather recliner is disguised as a massage chair. So if it is not comfortable to sit in, then it is a marketing disaster. Luckily, Human Touch has done its home work and has made this chair very comfortable. The material selection is fine grain leather that is nice to the touch. It has sufficient padding and the leg rest does not have any hint of a massage chair. Also, a pocket is used to store the remote and no remote holder is visible. Human Touch has done a great job with the 1650 and we give it a 19.
Ease of Use: I don’t know about you, but I have always struggled trying to program my VCR. Thank goodness Tivo has finally saved me. We are critically concerned with the ease of use with massage chairs. These chairs increase in features and functionalities every year. The challenge is to keep it simple. We are happy to announce that the HT1650 has managed this. It has a remote that uses two different faces for buttons. This keeps it small and easy to hide in the side pocket. We give the 1650 19 of the 20 for ease of use.
Key Features: There are two really outstanding features with the HT 1650. The first is acupoint detection system and the second is the hidden calf massager. Did you know your back has almost 100 acupressure points? Don’t worry, the 1650 will scan your back and target the most important ones for your complete relaxation. The secret with this recliner is the hidden calf massager. Without this feature, it would be another massage chair, but instead it is a leather recliner with massage capabilities. The key is the technique used to hide the calf massager so it is only revealed when you want a massage. The key features earn a 18 with this leather recliner.
Massage Therapy: The moment of truth with any massage is chair is how effective is the massage therapy. We were very skeptical with this chair because it does not look like your traditional massage chair. In fact, it looks like your traditional leather recliner. However, Human Touch manages to squeeze in 8 automatic pre-programs. These range in intensity and vigor depending on the one selected. There are also manual techniques. Four in all. This give you quite a selection to meet many needs you may have. Do not forget that the hidden calf massager works both for your feet and your calves. The HT 1650 gets a 17 in this category.
OK, so here it is, the HT-1650 earns a 90 out of a possible 100 points. This non-traditional massage chair is definitely your traditional leather recliner. You can count on a great selection of massage treatments between the automatic and the manual programs. This recliner also does your calves and feet, so you get almost full body coverage. The unique calf massager allows this massage chair to be placed in virtually any room. With this massage chair you can have your cake and eat it too.
