The Cozzia EC-363C Massage Chair offers some pretty high-end functionality at entry-level costs. From big, easy-to-read control displays to leg and foot massages, the chair comes standard with a pretty wide range of features.
It’s a big chair, to be sure, weighing in at over two hundred pounds. It can support a little over its own weight, maxing out around 260lbs. Part of the reason for the chair’s size and bulk is that it has a fairly unique feature — standing support for elderly and disabled users.
If you’re in the market for a chair with a huge feature list but an entry-level price point, this is certainly one to keep an eye on. Let’s go deeper:
Important Features – Cozzia EC-363C Massage Chair Review
The most important part of this Cozzia EC-363C Massage Chair review, and any massage chair review: what can it actually do?
There are seven massage styles built into the chair. These include kneading, clapping, tapping, rolling, shiatsu, Swedish, dual action and vibration.
That being said, there’s one downside to the intensity settings: there’s no deep-tissue massage option with the chair. You can get fairly intense massages out of it, but don’t expect to be getting the muscles down near the bone.
The chair uses a full-body air massage system with five levels of intensity. Most chairs at this price range use rollers for the massage and removable layers of padding for the intensity settings. Here, airbags with variable pressure are used instead. It makes adjusting the intensity of the massage much more hassle-free.
To somewhat make up for it, the chair features an additional three “Partial Massage” options. These target the neck and shoulders, the back and lumbar, or the lower body.
We’re not exactly sure why there’s a “demo” mode on the chair outside of commercial uses. A sixth, actual massage setting would’ve been much more appreciated.
The Cozzia EC-363C Massage Chair features six pre-programmed massages: Healthcare, relax, therapy, smart (includes stretching), circulation, and “demo”.
Automatic body scan technology is included. This scans your body shape and proportions to make sure your massage is tailored to you. It’s always nice when your massage chair doesn’t massage your lower back thinking it’s your buttocks. The footrest also automatically extends to suit your length.
Well, a lot. The gold standard Zero Gravity Recline is present, which is always nice. A standard feature, but sorely missed when it’s not included.
The vibration massage setting is particularly useful for using the chair as a, well, chair and watching TV while you get worked on. Unfortunately, there’s no deep-tissue option
One neat feature is that the backrest is S-shaped to better match the contour of the user’s back. The length of the track itself is about 30”, giving an effective user height of 5’2” to 6’4”.
Another feature that, by contrast, gives away the chair’s price is the heating. Higher-end models have full-body heating options, while lower-end models only provide lumbar heating elements. The lumbar section is probably the most useful place to have a heating pad, but it’s unfortunate it doesn’t extend further.
Manual options are, of course, available. These are programmable by the large screen controller on the side of the chair. There’s also a wireless remote for when you’re lying back, so you don’t need to strain to look at the control screen.
Perhaps one of the bigger selling points, and one of the chair’s most unique features, is a lift function for standing support. This allows elderly and disabled users to more easily get in and out of the chair. Basically, the chair raises to lessen the distance between the user’s standing height and seated height, to put less strain on the legs and back.
Incredibly Comfortable Design
This is a huge chair. It’s big and bulky and weighs in at about 215lbs. You not only need a lot of space to put it, but you’ll also need a helping hand (or two) to get it anywhere. Once it’s in position, you better hope you don’t need to move it again.
The Cozzia EC-363C Massage Chair is upholstered in high-quality faux-leather. It’s plenty cushioned for an incredibly comfortable experience. So it’s huge and incredibly heavy, but you’ll feel super comfortable at least.
Of all the features of the Cozzia EC-363C Massage Chair, the one that gives away its price point is the warranty. Chairs with these features are usually 2-3 times as expensive, and they have warranties to match.
The Cozzia EC-363C Massage Chair features a 2 year warranty, as opposed to the usual 3 or even 5 of higher-end chairs. The first year covers in-home servicing, while parts are covered for the full two years. The servicing covers both the structure and the Massaging Motion Upholstery.
So how do we sum up this Cozzia EC-363C Massage Chair review? For the price, it’s one of the most comprehensive chairs out there. Typically at this entry-level price range you’d expect a few simple settings and a Zero Gravity Recline. Here, you’ve got a pretty big list, including foot massage.
And perhaps most of all, the Stand Up Assistance feature is truly beneficial to those with limited or impaired mobility. This chair is absolutely ideal for elderly or disabled users who’d suffer getting in and out of a normal massage chair.
There are a few snags that give away the price, like the limited heating areas, the limited pre-programmed settings, and the 2 year warranty. But they’re more than made up for in everything else the chair has that most competitors in this area simply don’t.
So if you’re in the market for a good massage chair, but are on a limited budget, the Cozzia EC-363C Massage Chair presents a wonderful opportunity to have your cake and eat it too.
