I bought this Fujimi EP8800 massage chair at a trade show, new, at an unclosed price, but a lot cheaper. One day I came home and saw the chair in shipping carton at my front door, 278 Ib. It took some work to opened the huge carton, fortunately it has 2 wheels in the back, my wife and I managed to gently rolled it to the right spot in the family room, not easy but can be carefully done.
The assembly was quite easy, connecting the airbag tubes, insert seat bottom, screwed in place, zipped it. Then attached the 2 big arms, connected the airbag hoses, and 4 screws. Attached the control panel was also easy. Pretty straight forward and easy task. The instruction is hard to understand, but the graphics were helpful.
It uses regular household electric power, just plug it in and it works.
We also have an older Panasonic massage chair in perfect condition, but it is no comparison to this latest Fujimi EP8800, this is the most powerful massage chair I have ever used. Powerful and effective massage rollers have varies modes, dozens of preset programs can be switched at the push of one button. The instruction is in bad English, but at some point we each figured out how to use it. It is said it has 30 preset programs which I am sure is true, but we have yet to figure them out.
There are several features I really like. Airbags, the chair has many airbags all over, they inflate and squeeze and release your arms, legs, feet, body and butt so tightly almost hurts. You can control the intensity but I like the strongest mode which sometimes I thought it will not stop and bent on killing me, just I thought there maybe something wrong, then it stops. I love the feet rollers which is running constantly, then the airbags squeeze my feet and calf so tight they hurt, which is effective and exactly what they should do. I also like the back-stretch, chair lock the arms and feet, then lie down to stretch the back, a good one.
The styling reminds me of the first class and business class seats on the airplanes with that cocoon round shape in the back, and the blue LED lights are cool. My intention was to make this private comfort space like the first class seat on long haul flights, why should it be only on the airplane, I can do that at home, with a big HD TV in front, I think this turned out far superior than any first class setup. After a full day of work, I come home to sit in my first class massage chair, with a drink and watch TV, what a life.
We are very happy with this purchase, turned out better than expected. I’d highly recommend this Fujimi EP8800.
UPDATE: It has been few months, the EP8800 continues to provide excellent massage service daily. Push button controls raise and lower foot rest and back to lie flat position, returns to vertical position once you shuts it down with one push of button. Preset programs are very important, each goes through complex routines for 15 minutes programs. During a recent party, all 16 guests took turns to use it, some sneaked back repeatedly, all agreed this is the best they’ve ever used. One guy hurt his back that morning, the back stretcher mode fixed his back.
