Gideon Massage Seat Cushion Review
When you order the unit, you get the massaging seat cushion, an AC power cord, a DC power cord, and the owner’s manual. You also get the ability to customize your massages to your precise needs using the four massaging modes available: pulsation, tapping, rolling, or kneading. For all four massaging modes you also get four levels of intensity. Because it is a cushion, by design you are able to take it with you. There is a built in strap system that allows you to secure the seat in place wherever you are. Now that we’ve covered the features, onto the pros and cons.
- The heated feature offers a heat therapy that radiates a gentle warmth throughout the seat, designed to sooth and loosen any tight muscles. For those who want a nice warm up, both literally and figuratively, this seat gives just that. For consumers who are in pain, either short term or chronic, the heating feature converts the cushion into a heating pad for the entire back.
- The corded hand control is a convenient and easy to use way of controlling all of the functions. What’s more, the strapping system lets you connect the cushion to any seat and keep it in place. This is ideal for users who might need to bring the cushion with them on the road. The sleeve allows you to keep the corded hand control remote and the different power cords in one place. With the car adapter, you can secure this cushion to a chair at home or in the car.
- The vibrating massager is a wonderful addition to your home if you suffer from chronic pain. People who have back pain or leg pain benefit primarily from the precise spot massage function where they can target the areas which are causing the most pain that day. What’s more, the multiple settings allow users to create personal preference based control settings.
- When it’s powered on, the massager is a little bit noisy. If you are using it in the car while listening to the radio or at home while watching TV, then expect to turn the volume up a bit.
- For those who are searching for a deep tissue massage, the power generated by this chair will be insufficient. Don’t get us wrong, it offers a decent massage but it’s not designed to go deep into your muscles for serious pain. If, for example, you have a big knot in one part of your back, these cushions will not be able to work it out entirely.
