The Infinity IT-9800 Leather Zero Gravity Massage Chair is just skirting the borderline between the high and luxury ends of the market. It’s not quite the full-body wrap-around design you see at the luxury side, but it’s also not a basic Zero-G chair either.
The Infinity IT-9800 Leather Zero Gravity Massage Chair has a host of features you don’t always find in basic Zero-G chairs. It’s also, as the name suggests, wrapped head to toe in leather.
If you’re looking for a luxury chair and are happy to sacrifice features for price, this is one you’ll want to look at. Let’s take a look at the detailed Infinity IT-9800 massage chair review below.
The heart of any massage chair is, well, the massage it provides. Since the Infinity IT-9800 Leather Zero Gravity Massage Chair is a Zero-G chair, we’ll start by looking at some of its reclining features.
Firstly, and most obviously, it has the popular Zero-G recline mode. For anyone who doesn’t know, this is designed to take all of the weight off your joints as you lie back. It’s a pretty popular feature, but a good one.
The Infinity IT-9800 Leather Zero Gravity Massage Chair is one of the few true inversion therapy chairs on the market. Inversion therapy basically decompresses your spine by strategically stretching your body to relieve pressure. It’s a great way to help circulation and relieve back pain. The chair does this by reclining past 180 degrees and, ironically, using gravity to pull and play with your anatomy.
While reclining there are four specific programs in the chair:
Relax: a full body massage that uses the back and calf massage rollers. Comes in different recline angles and pre-programmed massage functions.
Stretch: includes the Zero Gravity and Inversion settings, as well as a “V” angle victory stretch and “V” angle lumbar stretch.
Rocking: add rocking to your recline session to gently rock you as you lie down.
Lie Down: basically turns the massage chair into a bed.
As for other massaging settings, there’s an impressive list attached to the Infinity IT-9800 Leather Zero Gravity Massage Chair. However, as it’s not fully in the luxury line, there are a couple of noticeable features missing.
There are four massage techniques (kneading, tapping, combination, shiatsu), which is pretty standard. Intensity is user-definable as well.
As we briefly mentioned above, the chair uses rollers in the calf section rather than the usual airbags. It’s a nice touch and provides a much deeper massage than you normally get from a massage chair.
There are a host of manual programs in the Infinity IT-9800 Massage Chair which give you pretty precise control over what type of massage you get. There’s:
- Full body massage, which is pretty self-explanatory.
- Regional massage, which will work specific areas that you can adjust on the fly.
- Fixed point massage, which allows you to set the roller exactly where you need it. Great to get those annoying knots out of your back.
- Head to neck massage, which keeps the rollers up around your head and neck.
- Upper back massage, which loosens up the shoulder blades like a charm.
- Lower back massage, to really get those lower back problems sorted out.
The chair also features thermal body scan technology to map your body shape and position the rollers properly. Heat therapy is technically incorporated in the chair, but only in the lumbar region. It’s arguably the most useful place to put it, but it’s a huge limitation for people who need heat therapy.
Most notably for missing features is a complete lack of airbags and no arm massage functionality. Like we’ve been saying, the Infinity IT-9800 Leather Zero Gravity Massage Chair isn’t quite in the luxury range, so omissions like this are to be expected.
Have we mentioned yet in our Infinity IT-9800 Massage Chair review that the chair is covered in leather? This makes for one soft, stylish looking chair that’s extra comfortable to sit on.
The design is fairly streamlined. It’s nothing compared to some of the bigger, bulkier luxury models, but it’s still nice and wide and comfortable for most people to sit on. The minimal styling, smaller profile, and leather finish would make it a pretty nice addition to anyone’s living room. Unlike bigger chairs, it wouldn’t look out of place in front of a TV.
There are multiple colors to choose from as well.
Now, while the Infinity IT-9800 Leather Zero Gravity Massage Chair obviously prides itself in being made of leather, it does propose a bit of a problem. Anyone who lives in a hot environment knows that sitting on an all-leather chair in high heat is going to result in some awkward sticking. Not to mention the extra care needed to avoid cracks and tears.
Other than that, it’s a nice looking chair.
Warranty and other things
The Infinity IT-9800 Leather Zero Gravity Massage Chair comes standard with 3 years warranty. This includes home service for the first year, parts for the first two years, and structure for all three years.
Extended warranties of one and two years extra are also available.
Lastly, it’s worth noting that Infinity even offers commercial use warranties. The owner will cover labor, but parts will be covered for two years. A nice touch for someone looking to add an income stream in their office.
The lack of air pads might be a deal breaker, or the thought of dealing with leather might turn you away. If those aren’t issues for you, seriously consider this amazing piece of style and technology. Your back will thank you.
To wrap up this Infinity IT-9800 massage chair review, it’s a high-end chair with a luxury finish. What it lacks in overall features it more than makes up for in style and comfort.
