Panasonic Massage Chair Review

Product Review: Panasonic EP-1273KL Massage Chair

Let us take an in-depth look at the Panasonic EP-1273KL shiatsu massage chair. We review its features, warranty and specifications. Panasonic is a Fortune 500 company with multiple product lines in the electronics industry. The EP 1273KL fits into the $2,000 to $3,000 price range or midrange level of massage chairs. We will explain some its advanced features and give our opinion of the Panasonic EP-1273KL shiatsu massage chair.
Massage chair companies are a diverse group. Panasonic obviously has a solid name and reputation. You can buy with confidence and be assured your warranty will be covered. Just a note of precaution if you are considering other brands: Just make sure any chair brand you buy sells to retail clients. If they do not, then be cautious about how they will back their warranty later. Saving a few hundred dollars now may translate into many more times that to fix a chair later.
Out of the box warranty coverage for the EP-1273KL massage chair is basic by industry standards. Of course for additional expense, you may and should purchase the extended warranty which will bring you up to other manufacturers standard coverage. Without the extended warranty, Panasonic covers has very basic coverage. The EP 1273 is covered with 1 year parts, 1 Year shipping, 1 year labor, and 1 year in-home technician service.
Almost everyone's favorite subject about massage chairs is how they look. The Panasonic does OK in this regard, but it looks a bit sterile for the general public. At least that is the comment we get a lot. This massage chair seems targeted to health professionals with its neo-industrial design aesthetics. Not to take away from the chair, but just make sure you like the look of this chair. We actively encourage our suppliers to make chairs that fit in any room.
The Panasonics Swede-Atsu massage replicates the hands of a master masseuse. The sophisticated movements of fingers, thumbs and palm have been imitated in the Panasonic arsenal of massage chairs. Choose from 8 massage techniques which include Hawaiian, Shiatsu and Swedish to find the relief that is right for you. 3 manual courses let you choose specific target areas in your back. 15 minute timed auto programs include the following: Deep, Gentle, Shiatsu and Refresh.
Air compression technology is advancing and Panasonic has included a calf air massage in the EP-1273. Target both the calf muscle and the feet. Gentle air pressure will squeeze, hold and release those areas. Get stretched out with the automatic leg rest with this massage chair recliner. Lower body muscles can be extended with the leg rest. The stretching function is built into the auto programs.
Panasonic does a terrific job with the EP-1273KL shiatsu massage chair. They include some higher end technology with the leg rest stretching system and their Swede Atsu massaging functions. This is reliable massage therapy administered at the touch of a button. Panasonic has basic warranty coverage from the factory, so consider getting the extended warranty. If you are looking at the midrange price level, then the Panasonic EP-1273KL massage chair should be on your short list.
