These massage chairs have been designed and formulated to reduce pain and help you with sleep problems & any chronic pain you may have.

Medical Breakthrough as a company has been in the healing game for over 36 years. They have seen people with all kinds of pain, poor sleep, and bad posture. They have even treated people who have had bad sporting injuries. 

Their line of massage therapy chairs were designed and developed because they saw how people suffered from these debilitating, yet treatable problems. The company realized that this debilitating pain or poor posture had affected almost every aspect of their patients’ lives. The company wanted their patients to lead normal and productive lives and to enjoy the things they enjoyed before the pain or suffering.

This line of massage chairs took the company 14 years to develop. They wanted the best quality and best technology to help their patients find relief. This chair helps you heal yourself. 

The line of Medical Breakthrough chairs is unique in the market. While many massage chairs only offer you a massage, Medical Breakthrough chairs provides you with medical benefits and treatment too.

Let’s find the best massage chair for you. 

Medical Breakthrough 9™

Medical Breakthrough 9

This chair is simply amazing when you read all that it has to offer:

  • The zero gravity
  • Full body medical scan
  • 3D tissue massage
  • Concentrated lower back rollers
  • Arm massage
  • Full stretch of the body to give release of tension
  • Hip twist
  • Heat massage
  • Shoulder massage
  • Reflexology
  • Sole rollers
  • Adjustable leg allowances

The extras on this chair are impressive. Firstly there is the Human Hands Massage technology. The Champissage Head Massager is also a reason many pick this one. But the Advanced Medical Care System is by far the best feature. Not only does it allow for targeted treatment but it helps you alleviate cancer-related symptoms, anxiety and physical recovery or even chemotherapy side effects.

Dimensions and Weight:

The chair in the upright position is 34” X 49” X 55” and in the reclined position is 34”X 31” X 69”. It only weight 374lb.

Medical Breakthrough 8™

Medical Breakthrough 8

This chair gives you the options of:

  • Medical full body scan
  • A head to toe treatment
  • 3D massage
  • Rollers that target the lower back
  • The entire arm is treated

It is a quiet chair so it will not disturb your partner. It is also very mobile because of the built-in wheels and allows for full leg allowances that are adjustable.

The Medical Breakthrough 8™ has a patented chiropractic body twist technology which gives your body a fantastic full body twist. The head massager is ideal for a strong neck massage.

The downside to this chair is the USB/MP3 connection. It would have been even better with a Bluetooth function. Also note the techniques are elementary. Still, if it’s your neck you want to focus on, this is an excellent option.

Dimensions and Weight:

The chair in the upright position is 36” X 53” X 52” and in the reclined position is 36” X 32” X 72”. This one is a bit heavier at 404lb.

Medical Breakthrough 7™

Medical Breakthrough 7

Similar to the Medical Breakthrough 6™ you’ll find this on the MB7 model:

  • Zero gravity position (although it’s in one reclining position)
  • Full-body automatic scanner
  • 3D tissue massage
  • Lower back intense treatment
  • Arm massage
  • Stretch of your whole body

The chair operates very quietly and has wheels which makes for mobility. It’s leg extensions also play a part in hip twist treatments some people desperately need.
The shoulder massagers are huge and make air massage possible. You can also get heat treatments and even get the soles of your feet rubbed down.

With this model, why not recharge with a reflexology type treatment?

The chair features some of the brand’s famous patented systems such as the Human Hands Massage System™. Along with the Champissage feature you can allow more oxygen to flow to your brain.

Draw backs include that you only get an AUX input—no wireless features.

Dimensions and Weight:

At 35” X 50”X 57” in the upright position and at 430lb it’s one of the larger models around.

Medical Breakthrough 6™

Medical Breakthrough 6

The features of this chair that make it a good seller include:

  • Japanese 3D neck and shoulder massage
  • Turkish Treatment
  • Greek Stress Relief
  • Tissue treatment based on Indonesian influence
  • New Delhi Yoga,
  • Swedish airbag massage techniques
  • Hawaiian sleep therapy

The fact that over 25 medical specialists participated in the design and manufacturing of this chair stands testament to the investment you’ll make.

The additional benefit is the medical body scan, with the chair mapping your body and finding the injury or pain. The 3D L-track is an added advantage. The chair is very quiet and has the built-in Bluetooth connection for optimal audio enjoyment.

The only drawback is the chair has no memory function. With a chair like this you can’t have everything, but it’s a dynamic option and would have made it even more valuable.

Dimensions and Weight:

For this one you need a space of 33” X 30” X 68” for it to recline. Luckily it’s lighter than some at 362lb.

Medical Breakthrough 5™

Medical Breakthrough 5

Some of the features include:

  • Zero gravity sleep system
  • Full body medical scan
  • Quiet massage
  • Adjustable leg extension
  • Back stretch system

This chair only comes with the most basic feature of all the chairs listed in this review. It is prized with being the first zero-gravity chair, and it was designed to bring about sleep faster. This chair helps you find the ideal fit for comfort and provides therapeutic massages.

It has the body stretch feature. This helps you improve posture and relieve pain. It is also a quiet machine so you won’t disturb those around you. It has the marvelous head to toe massage system. This is how you target pain and provide your body with the release of tension you sorely need.

The engulfed arm massage system will relieve you of tired or sore arms, covering every inch of your arm. The full body medical scan is again the state of the art technology that is indispensable in a medical massage chair of its caliber. 

Dimensions and Weight:

Dimensions for this one are 30”X 48” X 50” (or 30” X 32” X 66” in the reclined position). As one of the lightest units on our list at 275lb it’s ideal if you know you’ll have to move yours around often.

Medical Breakthrough 4™

Medical Breakthrough 5

Some of the features include:

  • Zero gravity sleep system
  • Full body medical scan
  • L-track massage system
  • Shoulder massage
  • Heat therapy

This chair comes with almost unlimited customization options as you can adjust everything from the massage to the incline.

It includes the zero gravity chiropractic body stretch and medical body scan. The thing that makes this chair attractive is the L-track design. This matches your body’s framework so all parts can be treated optimally.

The downside to this chair is that it has fewer massage techniques and no built-in music system, but it has a two memory function so you don’t have to adjust the settings each time you use the chair.

To add a little more, it also boasts multiple settings:

  • 3 manual massage modes
  • 5 speed settings
  • 3 intensity levels to adjust the massage type

Our favorite feature is the toe massage you get from the innovative papillae design. The infrared heat is extremely therapeutic because it warms you from the inside. 

Dimensions and Weight:

In total you’ll need 53” X 35” X 50” space for this one to recline in your home. It only weighs 220lbs so it’s super easy to maneuver around the house.

Final Thoughts:

We showed you valuable options on the Medical Breakthrough product list. Whether you want zero-gravity experiences or other unique features, there’s a massage chair for you out there.

While we believe the Medical Breakthrough 6 is an excellent option—an impressive balance between cost and features—the other models are also worthwhile investments.

It is always important to do your research before buying an massage chair of this level and there are many others to chose from. If you’re still indecisive about which brand to try, remember that this one has been endorsed by many medical professionals.

Your body deserves a break and it should be treated by the best around. Ready to spoil yourself?
