Massage Chair Review: Sanyo DR6700K Shiatsu Massage Chair Recliner

We will provide an evaluation of the luxury Sanyo HEC-DR6700 massage chair. The DR 6700 is made by Hitachi Electric Company for Sanyo. This product review will touch on some of the cool electronic features, massage therapy functions and warranty coverage. We present our analysis of the DR-6700 massage chair recliner.
Warranty is the first thing we want to cover and get out of the way. We are amazed at the pace in which features and functions are being added to massage chair. On the flip side of this we also advise our customers to make sure they get sufficient warranty coverage for their long term protection.
Sanyo provides the warranty coverage for the DR-6700 massage chair. The warranty coverage is as follows: You get three years coverage for the roller mechanism. This is the device that provides the massage for your back, neck and shoulders. Otherwise, the rest of the chair gets 1 year for both parts and labor. One good part of the coverage is the one year of in home technician service.
The Sanyo 6700 is equipped with automatic programs that run the entire massage functions of the chair. These start at the touch of a button. There are 4 of these programs. Each of them targets certain situations of which they are named. The categories they have labeled are Stiffness, Fine, Relax and Recovery.
Manual massage techniques are also available in the DR6700. These manual treatments use one particular technique like kneading which can then be used to cover a particular spot or region of the body. These techniques are great where you want a specific type of relief. The other manual massage techniques include Shiatsu, Grip, Kneading, Tapping and Combination Kneading/Tapping.
There are many adjustments you can make with the in the manual massage mode. You can select the roller width adjustment. The rollers in the chair back can be set at a wider or narrower depending on where you would like the massage to penetrate. Also, you can adjust the intensity of the massage. You can make it softer or more vigorous. If you are tender, then a softer mode may be appropriate, whereas if you want deeper penetration you can set it stronger.
Another great set of functions has to do where you can select the area of the back to be massaged. This is known as manual massage courses. These courses focus on a particular region of the back, like the lower back. Just select the manual massage technique and then the area you want it to focus. The massage then will use that technique in the area selected for the amount of time shown on the timer.
One of the interesting electronic features put into the Sanyo Dr-6700 is called the Stiffness Detector. The Stiffness Detector measures your perspiration level and monitors your pulse rate, but it doesn't check if you are lying! The information is then read by the on-board computer and the massage program will target areas of higher tension.
The lower body also needs some attention and the DR6700 has just the answer. An air compressor has been installed underneath the seat which activates air bags in the chair. The air bags provide a soothing compression massage. The air bags are specifically designed for each major muscle group in the legs to provide effective relief.
The DR-6700 massage chair has some very nice features to compliment its massage therapy. The stiffness detector is certainly unique, but actually pretty effective. Good thing it doesn't ask you questions! The manual massage treatments like the Grip massage are fabulous. We do like the automatic programs that Sanyo has developed. We wish the labor for the warranty coverage was a little longer. Overall, this is a solid massage chair that can meet your long term massage therapy needs.
