This way, no one has to worry about “messing up” another family member’s settings.

Cons

  • Takes Time to Learn: A chair with a long list of features is going to have a remote with a lot of different buttons, so it can take some time to figure out and start using the features you want.
  • Strong Foot Rollers: One of the most common customer complaints about the Infinity IT-8500 massage chair was the strength of the foot roller rubdown. Many note that the rollers were too hard on the arch of their feet, but this can be remedied by turning off the foot roller function.
