Product Review for the Human Touch HT-1650 Massage Chair

Product Review for the Human Touch HT-1650 Massage Chair
by Steve Esquire

The Luxury massage chair recliner model HT-1650 is the subject of this product review. The HT 1650 is made by Human Touch. The HT1650 is unique in that it looks like a normal recliner, but has many massage therapy capabilities. Let us take a look at this unique massage chair, the HT-1650 by Human Touch.

We are first going to look at warranty coverage. We emphasize this because we have seen our share of customer horror stories of going with a small massage chair importer. They then run into problems and get stuck with a chair that doesn’t work, no parts are available and no one can fix it. We always recommend going with a recognized brand with higher quality standards and longevity.

Human Touch provides the following warranty coverage for the HT 1650 massage recliner. You get 5 years on the structure, 3 years parts, 1 year labor and 90 days of in field service. Compared to other known brands, this warranty coverage is competitive. We would like to see more coverage for labor which in our opinion should be equal to the parts.

This massage chair comes with 4 manual massage functions. The manual massage functions include: rolling, compression, kneading and percussion. There are also 8 automatic programs which include: full body sore muscle relief, sports and back therapy, leg- foot-hip therapy, neck-shoulders relief, after work stretch, morning wake up, night time soothing, and massage demonstration. Each of these automatic massage functions provides for targeted relief of particular areas.

Smart Home Technology

Before selecting a manual massage function, you can select the acupoint detection. The acupoint detection system performs a scan of your body. The chair will detect your individual acupoints. These are trigger points located throughout your back of which there are almost 100. The computer then records these points and will then stimulate them when performing certain massage techniques like shiatsu. To perform the scan you manually have to set the shoulder height and lower the massage intensity.

The HT-1650 comes with a hidden calf and foot massager. The calf and foot massage doubles as a regular leg rest when not being used for massage. This calf and foot massager is hidden in the front of the chair. The massager can be flipped to reveal the calf and foot massager. This is a great feature in that the calf and foot massager can be hidden from view when not in use.

If you have sore feet or tightness of the calves, then the leg rest massager is a great feature for you. This leg rest comes equipped with an air compression system. There are airbags built into the leg wells that perform a soothing compression massage. The air system activates the airbags and they will gently or firmly squeeze, hold and release your feet or calves. This is very soothing and relieving for your feet and calves.

One of the impressive features of the HT 1650 is the two sided remote. This unique remote has controls of two of the four sides. This enabled Human Touch to reduce the size of the remote by taking advantage of this remote real estate. With a smaller remote, the remote stand was then removed. In its place is a pocket built into the chair to house the remote control. This is a great design feature which keeps this recliner looking like a recliner–rather than your typical massage chair.
