Review of the Omega M-5000 DLX Massage Chair Leave a comment

This is a review of one of the top massage chairs produced by Omega Massage. The M-5000DLX is going to be evaluated based on its ease of use, warranty coverage, ergonomics, key features and the effectiveness of its massage therapy. Our reviews are systematic and a chair can earn up to 20 points in each category. The sum of the categories then determines its overall rating. Let us take a look at how the M5000 DLX rates.
Warranty Coverage & Customer Service: We know this is the least exciting subject of our review, but in the long run, one of the more important. Massage chairs are becoming more complex with both computers and more sophisticated movements. Although quality levels are always increasing, things can sometimes just go wrong. What is the warranty coverage for the DLX? Omega provides you with five years of coverage for structure, three years for parts and labor and ninety days of in home field service. This certainly is one of the best warranties in its class. On the service side, Omega is technically competent and issues are resolved quickly. Overall, we give the DLX a 19 for its warranty coverage and customer service.
Comfort & Ergonomics: This is a vitally important category for your long term comfort needs. For you to relax, a massage chair needs to fit the body, so you are comfortable. The design of the chair needs to facilitate that all controls are easily accessed. The DLX is well designed from this perspective. The seat is plush as well as the back pad. There are a series of pads for the back. There is a removable back pad, the main back pad, a neck pad and a head pillow. These are adjustable to suit your needs. All of the functions of the chair can be operated from the main remote. There is a hidden panel in the middle of the slim controller for manual operations and for the music controls. We rate the DLX an 18 for comfort and ergonomics.
Ease of Use: The electronics being incorporated into the devices of today are simply outstanding. There are more and more features available and that is great news for consumers. The challenge, of course, is designing these devices so that one does not need a PHD to use it. We like the DLX from an ease of use perspective. It has a simple design for its remote control. There are single-touch auto massage programs. A clear LCD screen to show what the chair is doing. They also have a hidden panel for all the manual massage adjustment as well as the MP3 player controls. We rate the M-5000 an 18 for ease of use.
Key Features: The key features that stand out in the M5000 DLX are the lower body air massage with the reflexology foot massage and the lower back massage. The air massage system consists of an air compressor that inflates specially designed airbags. The airbags for the foot massage have reflexology nodules. These nodules stimulate your trigger points on your feet to induce your whole body to relax. The lower back massage provides a penetrating massage to the lumbar area. The DLX reaches down to the lower parts of the lumbar with deep and penetrating strokes that provide substantial relief. We give the DLX an 18 for its key features.
Massage Therapy: We will state right off the bat that the M5000 DLX is the strongest and most penetrating massage chair on the market today. The DLX comes with layers of padding to soften massage. This allows those more sensitive to also enjoy the chair, but also more importantly it allows those that need a deep penetrating massage to obtain it now and in the future. The automatic pre-programs are perhaps the best designed massage programs available with techniques not available in other chairs. The lower body is covered with the air massage system which can target together or individually the feet, calves, thighs and buttocks. We give the DLX an 18 for massage therapy.
If you need deep, penetrating relief, then this is the massage chair for you. Overall, we give it 91/100 points. It comes with an excellent warranty. It is well designed to be simple and easy to use. The air massage system is very soothing for the lower body and the reflexology foot massage is fantastic. The programming of the pre-set programs are simply outstanding. These provide thorough coverage of your back and penetrate deeply to relieve sore muscles. We like the included headphones which enables you to tune out the world and just totally relax. The M-5000 DLX is massage chair that will provide you with massage treatments to meet your long term needs.
