SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING: To avoid the risk of injury:
1. Pregnant women, people who are ill, in poor physical shape or undergoing medical treatment, and people
suffering from back, neck, shoulder or hip pain should consult their doctor before using the unit. If you have a
pacemaker, defibrillator, or other personal medical device, consult with the manufacturer of your device before
using the unit. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this information.
2. 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, the seat and cover under the armrest,
or the gap between the legrest and the footrest. Do not place your fingers or any part of your body in the
mechanism below the legrest, or between the legrest and footrest.
3. Do not allow the massage heads to be used on the head, abdomen or bare skin. Do not allow knees to come in
contact with or become caught in the legrest. Protect the neck area by covering it with a towel, etc.
When raising the backrest, do not allow hands or feet to become caught between the backrest and the backrest
stopper or the backrest and the armrests.
4. Do not allow the unit to be used on bare skin. 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
shoulder 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.
Do not sit on the legrest as the unit may fall over.
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. If using the massager for the first time, it is recommended to start on the swedish massage program. 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. Legrest folds down on
closing so that a child could possibly be injured. Always leave in an upright and closed position. Keep hands
and feet clear of mechanism. Only the occupant should operate it.

OPERATING PRECAUTIONS
WARNING: To avoid damaging the chair, follow these precautions:
1. The chair is designed for a maximum user weight of 265 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, such as turning the chair on its side, turning the chair over or standing 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 attempt to repair the massager yourself.
7. Do not repeatedly operate any switch at short intervals. Such action may cause the switch to malfunction.
8. Some noise may be heard coming from the massager while in use. This is due to the structure of the massager
and is normal.
9. 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.
10. 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 case, slightly
raise your body and allow the massage heads to move up.
11. 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.
12. Do not sit on the chair with wet body or hair.
13. The unit must not be used in “wet rooms” (sauna, swimming pool) or outdoors.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
The 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 adaptor should be used with this product.

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.
H
The position of the massage heads is incorrect.
(See Page 12)
