PANASONIC MAK1 MASSAGE CHAIR
The most highly developed deep-tissue massage chair in the world, the Panasonic MAK1 features the unmatched performance and versatility of Panasonic’s proprietary Real Pro Ultra massage mechanism to provide precise movements, diverse massage styles, and real-time responsiveness to your body’s needs that you simply cannot find in any other massage chair.
PANASONIC MAK1 FEATURES
REAL PRO ULTRA 4D MASSAGE SYSTEM
With whisper-quiet high performance, the Real Pro Ultra 4D Human Intelligence mechanism goes beyond seamlessly moving in 3D space and authentically delivering a wide range of massage styles. By drawing real-time data from body sensors, it adjusts its speed and intensity to your body’s unique needs at the moment, just like a human massage therapist.
FULL BODY AIR MASSAGE
Air cells apply compression massage to the shoulders, hips, thighs, buttocks, calves, feet, forearms, and hands. The MAK1’s extensive air cell array is carefully positioned for maximum benefit and insightfully programmed for maximum healing effect. Compression and release are sequenced to faithfully replicate the motions of a real massage therapist. The MAK1 features extended shoulder air cells to provide stronger hold and range, as well as heel air cells to complete a whole foot massage. This chair leaves no space unaddressed.
An additional air cell located behind the knee provides therapeutic stretch and traction motions.
INFRARED HEATED ROLLERS
Infrared-heated massage rollers generate soothing warmth to help relax sore, tense muscles. With heating elements located directly on the massage roller assembly, the MAK1 delivers point-specific heat you’d expect to feel from the thumbs and palms of a massage therapist’s hands.
ADVANCED LOWER CORE MASSAGE
The MAK1’s seat air cells gently lift and reposition your whole body allowing the mechanism to work the glutes and upper hamstrings. Relief for stiff, tight hips is achieved by targeting acupressure points. Over 4.5″ of in and out “reach” from the Real Pro make the Lower Core capabilities uniquely capable.
REAL-TIME 6-POSITION AND FORCE MICROPROCESSOR
The Real Pro Ultra mechanism constantly feeds information to the chair’s Position and Force Microprocessor, adjusting massage movements based on this real-time feedback. This responsiveness allows the MAK1 to faithfully replicate the intricate kneading movements of a human masseuse. The MAK1’s ability to sense pressure also means that massage intensity is customized to each user.
PROFESSIONAL SOLE MASSAGE
A fusion of cutting-edge technology and reflexology techniques delivers deep massage therapy to the soles of your feet. Full coverage air cells hold your foot in place as the foot massage mechanism replicates the hand movements of a professional reflexologist. Capable of plantar arch manipulating massage, sole kneading, and sole shiatsu, the sole mechanism can adjust intensity and style to suit your mood and your need.
MULTIPLE MASSAGE ACTIONS
The MAK1 Real Pro Ultra performs complex junetsu and shiatsu massage movements. Rolling, tapping, kneading, and ultra-slow kneading techniques are combined in programmed sessions to mimic the touch of human hands and deliver maximum benefit.
INTENSITY SENSING AND ADJUSTMENTS
The individual massage features of the MAK1 are adjustable from gentle to firm. Air cell compression intensity, foot massage intensity, and roller massage intensity are each independently controlled. Plus, up to three users can program and save their favorite settings.
PROFESSIONAL STRETCHING TECHNIQUES
By blending the Real Pro Ultra functions with full-body air cell coverage, the MAK1 delivers an impressive suite of stretching movements. These powerfully therapeutic movements (which you’ll find in many of the chair’s programmed sessions) mobilize the spine, promote relaxation, and improve the flexibility of the lower back, middle back, and neck. Our stretching techniques are perfect for post-workout relaxation or to shake off sleep and stiffness as a morning rejuvenation session. The MAK1 offers a full range of stretching techniques, including the Neck, Pelvis, Chest, Leg, Lower Back, and new for the MAK1, Core.
USER-FRIENDLY TABLET REMOTE
Easily control the advanced features and customization capabilities of the MAK1 with a simple touch screen.
EXPANDED CALF MASSAGE
Calf air cells extend around your leg to massage the anterior tibialis.
JUNETSU ULTRA KNEADING: A REAL PRO EXCLUSIVE
Junetsu Ultra Kneading massage techniques involve tight, spiral movements that quickly and effectively loosen tight muscles. The target zones benefit from increased blood flow and improvement in the pliability of muscle fibers. Junetsu Ultra Kneading also does an exceptional job relaxing the neck and shoulders, to help improve mobility, range of motion, and comfort. These techniques are proprietary and exclusive to Panasonic massage chairs.
Based on traditional Chinese medicine, this Japanese style of massage literally translates to “finger pressure.” As the name suggests, shiatsu massage addresses specific points on the body, often referred to as shiatsu points, pressure points, or acupressure points. The MA73’s body scan in concert with pressure sensing massage heads direct force accurately and firmly on shiatsu points.
The Swedish massage style helps to provide overall relaxation and improve circulation while enhancing physical health and mental well-being. The MA73’s Real Pro Ultra mechanism applies gentle pressure and movements to simulate how a massage therapist uses hands and palms to provide the relaxing movements typical of a Swedish massage.
Experience the dazzling variety in circumference, speed, and depth of kneading offered by the MA73. From deep kneading therapy to the most gentle of strokes, MA73’s Real Pro Ultra massage mechanism makes it possible to recreate the trained hands of a massage therapist.
This motion simulates the sensation of hands percussively or gently tapping the back. Rapid tapping invigorates and revitalizes, while slow tapping can help your mind and body drift peacefully and comfortably in deep meditation.
An up-down movement that is as simple as it sounds… that is until you add in the variation of speed, width, and depth that can be achieved by the Real Pro Ultra mechanism. Rolling motions are surprisingly relaxing, and they provide beneficial intersegmental traction and extension to all levels of your back. Regular back mobilization helps promote and maintain the health of spinal discs. The Real Pro Ultra is capable of combining kneading, tapping, and rolling, creating a broad spectrum of sensations.

Do I need White Glove Setup (also known as indoor setup & assembly) or can I do it myself?
- The chairs are easy to assemble. It only takes about 20 minutes. The only reason assembly is required is because most chairs ship with the arms detached to make it narrower, lighter and easier to move into your home.
- The assembly is basically just screwing the arms to the chair. It includes easy to follow instructions and does not require special tools or skills.
- If you want them to setup the chair inside your home, you can select the option for “White Glove Setup”. We don't recommend it for most people it because it's an easy way to save yourself the money. But we're happy to add it to your order if you'd like.
- Yes, we ship many massage chairs to Canada. Total turnaround time is typically about 2 and a half weeks. We make it easy by handling all of the importing paperwork. We also pay for the customs brokerage and filing fees.
