SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING: To avoid the risk of injury:
1. Persons with any of the conditions listed below or who are undergoing medical treatment or suffer from medical
conditions should consult with their physicians before using the unit:
a) Pregnant women, people who are ill, in poor physical shape.
b) People suffering from back, neck, shoulder, or hip pain.
c)People who have a pacemaker, defibrillator, or other personal medical devices prone to electronic
interference.
d) People suffering from heart disease.
e) People who are prohibited from receiving massage by a physician due to thrombosis or aneurism, acute
varicose veins, or other circulatory disorders.
f) People with irregular curvatures of the spine.
2. This unit should not be used by children. Remove the key when not in use and store out of reach of children.
3. Sit down slowly after checking the position of the massage heads. Never put any part of your body between the
massage heads as the squeezing action of the massage heads may cause injury. Never put your fingers or feet
in the gap between the backrest and seat, the backrest and the armrest, or the seat and cover under the
armrest.
4. Do not use the unit against bare skin. While thin clothing may increase effectiveness, exposing the skin directly
to the massager may irritate the skin.
Do not use the unit while wearing anything hard on your head like a hair accessory, etc. Do not use the unit for
massaging the head, abdomen, front neck, elbows or knees.
Do not use excessively strong massage action on the back of the neck.
5. When using the massager, use the Neck Roller Position button to adjust the massage heads to the correct
position. You can adjust the shoulder position in this way in the pre-programs and Rolling in the manual
operation.
Failure to align the shoulder position correctly can lead to injury.
6. Do not stretch the back muscles for more than approximately 15 minutes at a time. To avoid overstretching the
muscles which may result in discomfort, do not use the unit for more than 5 minutes when first using it. You can
gradually increase the duration and strength of the massage as you become used to it.
Do not massage any one point for more than 5 minutes at a time.
Excessive massaging can overstimulate the muscles and nerves and result in an adverse effect.
To prevent excessive massaging, do not use the massager for more than a total of 15 minutes each session.
After approximately 15 minutes, the massage heads will be retracted and stop moving.
The back cushion can be removed if you want to experience a stronger back massage. Exercise extreme care
when you use this mode in order to avoid back pain or injury. Use only for short periods of time (no more than
15 minutes). Reinstall the back cushion if you want to restore to normal massage intensity.
7. While using the massager, if you start feeling sick or if the massage seems painful, stop using it immediately.
While using the massager, if the pressure seems too strong, the movement of the massage heads can be
stopped at any time by pressing the Quick Stop button.
8. Do not go to sleep while using the unit. Do not use the unit after drinking alcohol.
9. When the seat back is in a reclined position, do not sit on it or sit with your legs resting on the headrest.
10. Do not allow children or pets to play on or around the unit, especially during operation.
11. Do not unplug the unit or turn it off during operation. Unplug the unit immediately if there is a power outage.
12. Be sure to start on the gentle massage program if using the massager for the first time. The shiatsu massage is
stronger and should be enjoyed after one has gotten accustomed to the chair.
13. Do not allow children to play on this mechanized furniture or operate the mechanism. Always leave in an upright
and closed position. Keep hands and feet clear of mechanism. Only the occupant should operate it.
14. Always raise the back cushion to check that the fabric of the unit itself has not been ripped before using the unit.
Please also check other areas to ensure that the fabric has not been ripped. No matter how small the rip, if you
find one then immediately stop using the unit, unplug the power cord and have the unit repaired at an
authorized service center.
OPERATING PRECAUTIONS
English
WARNING: To avoid damaging the chair, follow these precautions:
1. The chair is designed for a maximum user weight of 264 lbs (120 kg). Exceeding the maximum weight may
cause permanent damage to the massage mechanism and/or other components of the unit. Any such damage
is deemed to be user abuse and is not covered under the Limited Warranty.
2. Do not sit on or drop the controller. Do not pull the controller cord or the power cord. Be careful not to catch the
cord of the controller between the armrest and the chair back.
3. Do not treat the chair roughly, turn the chair on its side, turn the chair over or stand on it.
4. Do not treat the covering roughly.
• Keep sharp or pointed objects away from the covering of the chair. Be careful not to drop lit ashes, lit cigarettes
or matches on the chair.
• Exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading or a change in color of the covering.
5. If the massager functions abnormally, immediately turn off the power and have the massager checked by an
authorized service center.
6. Do not repeatedly operate any switch at short intervals. Such action may cause the switch to malfunction.
7. Some noise may be heard coming from the massager while in use. This is due to the structure of the massager
and is normal.
8. Make sure there are no obstacles behind the chair before reclining it. The chair can be reclined to a maximum
angle of 170˚. If the back hits a wall or pillar, the chair may malfunction. Be sure to have ample space behind
the chair. Recline the chair slowly in order to avoid contact with an obstacle.
9. When excessive pressure is applied to the massage heads, they may stop moving for safety. When moving the
heads up from the lowered position, one’s body weight may stop the heads’ movement. In such a case, slightly
raise your body and allow the massage heads to move up.
10. After each massage, slide the power switch, which is located on the right side of the chair, to the “off” position
and turn its lock switch to the “lock” position.
11. Do not sit on the chair with wet body or hair.
12. The unit must not be used in “wet rooms” (sauna, swimming pool) or outdoors.
13. Do not attempt to open or disassemble any part of the unit. Only use an authorized Panasonic servicer to fix
your unit.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
DANGER
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with
a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not
modify the plug provided with the product – if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
This product is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in
Figure A. Make sure that the product is connected to an outlet having the same configuration as the plug.
No adapter should be used with this product.

• There is excessive noise during Tapping. (The noise is greater at the top of the unit.)
• There is a creaking noise when the massage heads are in operation.
• There is a rattling sound when the massage heads move up or down.
• The belt can be heard rotating.
• There is a rubbing sound produced by the massage heads rubbing on the seat fabric.

• When the power switch is turned on there is a humming sound.
• The legrest rattles.
These sounds are perfectly normal and will not have any effect on the operation of the unit.
The massage heads stop during operation.
When excessive force is applied to the massage heads during operation, in the interests of safety the massage heads may
stop moving.
If all markings and buttons on the controller start to flash, which is extremely unusual, turn off the power switch, wait for
approximately 10 seconds and then turn the power switch on again. If the massage heads stop again, position yourself so
that your back is not completely in contact with the backrest.
The massage heads do not come up to the shoulder or neck.
The position of the massage heads is incorrect.
(See Page 11)
The height of the left and right massage heads is different.
An alternating tapping method is employed, which means that this phenomenon will naturally occur.
There is nothing wrong with the unit.
It is not possible to recline the unit.
The legrest cannot be raised or lowered.
If the unit encounters an obstacle or if excessive force is exerted on it during operation, in the interests of safety the unit will
come to a stop.

approximately 10 seconds and then turn the power switch on again.
Reclining does not take place even though a massage is started in pre-programs.
(The seat does not automatically recline.)
In some cases the seat may not automatically recline depending on the position (angle) of the backrest or the legrest.
Automatic reclining will not activate when the backrest is reclined to flat position more than massage position and legrest is
in upper position.
The backrest does not return to the upright position.
The backrest will not return to the upright position if the timer is activated or the
button is pressed.
(Pressing
twice will return the backrest to its original position.)
(See Page 15)
It is not possible to switch from Swedish and Knead to Hawaiian and Compression.
Switching can be hindered when the user’s body weight is not resting on the massage heads. Shift your weight so that your
body is contact with the massage heads.

If the length of the legrest has been extended, the legrest will strike the floor, preventing from returning to its original
position. Try again after retracting it to its original length.
