Reintroduction to the M.8

Ohco M.8 Massage Chairs

The very-well selling M.8 was created with the help of Ken Okuyama out of Japan. A well-known designer of high-end automobiles, adding doors to the M.8 was a natural place for his mind to go. These doors, among the other wonderful features this chair offers, are what have made this chair such an incredible seller over the past few months. What’s been keeping the M.8 at the top of the best-seller list? The MaxTrack.

The MaxTrack Brings It All

As you likely know, there are two main types of massage chair tracks: S-Track and L-Track. They each hold their own benefits and there are reasons for a user to prefer either one. The MaxTrack, however, brings a bit of them both together. 

Essentially, the difference between the S-Track and L-Track is that the L-Track is longer, stretching down to the lower back and glutes, potentially even the hamstrings. The S-Track can’t reach your glutes or thighs. This added length and muscle attention tends to be a fan favorite and most modern massage chairs are beginning to include this track in their design. The L-Track does have limits though.

Recline Further

When customers are looking at a massage chair, two other very important features are zero gravity and inversion. Typically, when you’re looking for chairs that truly provide these positions and their benefits the chair track has to be an S-track.

Why?

Because when you have an L-Track it is made in one fixed piece. And that shape prevents a chair from getting into 180 degrees in a lay-flat position. These chairs can tilt back but the concept of them moving two separate sections of the chair into a totally flat position isn’t feasible. That’s where the M.8 MaxTrack comes into play.

When we spoke with Cliff Levin at the 2019 CES Convention, where the chair was showcased, he explained the M.8 MaxTrack wonderfully.

“So the way our MaxTrack differs from other track shapes [...] number one is with an S-Track you actually have much more limited body coverage. S-Tracks are limited just to the back portion of the chair. Much the industry has evolved into something called an L-Track. The L-Track is a fixed track shape [with] a particular back and seat angle configuration. [...] Basically, the back and seat of an L-Track chair have to move in perfect unison. In fact, they’re welded together. They can’t move separately. That’s an L-Track. L-Tracks actually are very good chairs. They get into nice and comfortable Zero Gravity positions and work quite a bit of the body.”

But as we talked about and Levin mentions, a fixed position means that a true lay-flat position or inversion is not doable.

“Then, we step and take a leap into MaxTrack. As I said, [...] you can’t divorce the shape of the track from the way the mechanism operates in order to understand how [the] MaxTrack is different. [The] MaxTrack is shaped like a C or a J and because the mechanism has so much freedom of movement on those rails [...] it’s able to stay in close contact with your body throughout the length of its track. What that means is in our new Dreamwave M Series chairs, you can actually be in a classical Zero Gravity position, but you can also be in a lay-flat position. Both of those positions are possible with our MaxTrack design. It’s unique in the industry.”

Ocho M.8 Massage Chair Reclined

When you’re laying in a flat position in your massage chair it can enhance the massage because your weight is firmly on the rollers. This can help to increase the massage power and intensifies relaxation. And when the massage is the most important part of the chair, as it should be, this position is a nice add-on.

The M.8 MaxTrack is unique in the industry right now as the first to provide an L-Track massage experience that allows a user to get into lay-flat and zero gravity positions. This alone can make it well worth the price tag. Check out the chair for yourself here.
