The Inada Flex 3s massage chair has the physical built similar to the Sogno while its performance is unlike the Dreamwave massage chair. The advantages of this massage chair lies in its treatment of the lower back and shoulder areas as well as its stretching program.
The roller track system of the Inada Flex 3s reaches the sacral area similar to the Sogno but it concentrates longer in that area. Pain is usually felt in the sacral area which this massage chair addresses. The sacrum refers to the bone at the bottom of the spine above the tailbone. It functions as the base of the spinal vertebrae.
Another advantage of getting the Inada Flex 3s is the easy to follow user manual which can be read in twenty minutes but would still give the owners plenty of information about the massage chair. The explanation in the manual details all the functions and the functions’ role in the body. The massage chair is also smaller compared to Sogno which is beneficial because it doesn’t use or require a very big space. But with this compact size for the massage chair comes with a height limitation of 6’2”.
The Inada Flex 3s runs quietly which is quite surprising as the airbags do not emit loud sounds as they inflate and deflate. For other massage chair models, the airbags are very noisy which can affect a person’s relaxation. The massage chair also has a dedicated button for auto upright in the remote control that puts back the chair in the upright position after a program finishes. However, for sessions that end before the program is completed, this feature does not work. For this, the owner will have to press the recline button to restore the upright position. This could also be done by holding the recline button for two seconds as it would automatically put back the chair in the reclining position without needing to hold down the button for the entire time. The Inada Flex 3s massage chair also has a separate leg rest and chair back recline and incline buttons which puts back the massage chair in upright position if pressed for two seconds. This option is made available for those who prefer to have consecutive sessions in the massage chair as it will not automatically bring them in the upright position after one session ends. To do this, they should not turn on the auto upright button so that they will remain reclined in preparation for the next massage session.
The Inada Flex 3s massage chair’s rollers and airbags can be regulated in terms of intensity in two ways. One, owners can use the separate intensity adjustment buttons found in the remote control to alter the intensity of each feature independent of each other. Another way is to press the max intensity button which increases the roller and airbag intensity instantaneously. This button also places the roller and airbag intensity to high. For different levels of intensity, the separate intensity button can be used such as adjusting one feature to low while the other at medium. The main purpose of these buttons is to provide a one touch button for those who would like to increase the intensity of the airbags.
Another feature of the Inada Flex 3s massage chair is the heating module located at the soles of the feet as well as the palms of the hand extending to the fingers. This feature is very unique compared to other massage chairs in the market which only have low or middle back heating elements. One model which provides heat therapy for the soles of the feet is the Sanyo 7700. This heating feature of Inada Flex 3s is similar to getting a hot stone massage for the hands and feet.
Inada Flex 3S comes with a 3-year limited warranty against defective parts and manufacturing issues.
