Kyota Kokoro M888 Massage Chair

The Kyota Kokoro M888 4D is crafted from superior materials and offers some of today’s most advanced massage technologies. The J-Track Massage allows for maximum coverage and stretching. Make the most of Kyota’s certified pre-owned sale.

The Kokoro M888 4D is equipped with the 4D Back Mechanism plus the J-Track (or Flex Track) design, which combines the neck-to-glutes coverage of an L-track with the superior stretching capabilities of an S-Track. If you combine the Triple Heat with the back, arms, and feet, your whole body will thank you!

Kneading and oscillation combined with Triple Roller Total Sole Reflexology provide the ultimate foot massage. You can simply sit back, relax, and tell your chair where to go with its Intelligent Voice Command system. Take advantage of the Integrated Air Ionizer and Bluetooth Speakers to create your own personalized spa experience.

The chairs have passed a 37-point inspection by Kyota technicians and are marked Grade-B, meaning they are in perfect working order with minor cosmetic flaws that don’t affect the chair’s operation. The majority of these chairs have not even been used and were simply returned by the customer for some reason.

Kyota Kokoro M888 Massage Chair Notable Benefits & Features

4D Back Massage Mechanism

By using a 4D mechanism that moves up and down, left and right, in and out (intensity), along with a fourth dimension of variable speed, a 4D back, and glutes massage mimics deep tissue massage of human hands, creating the sensation of a human hand massage.

J-Track Massage/Flex Track

J-Tracks combine the best of both L- and S-Tracks, with a track that opens up some upon reclining while continuing down to the gluteus. By decompressing the spine, and massaging from the neck to the glutes, the patient benefits from enhanced spinal health.

Ultimate Foot Massage

It is an incredible experience that you will never forget. There are varispeed reflexology rollers, heat, and foot compression massage included in this therapeutic foot massage. Bring yourself back to health with the finest therapy!

TrueFit™ Footrest Extension

Using a mechanical mechanism, the footrest extends and retracts to adjust to the length of the user’s legs.

Intelligent Voice Command + Control

Using an intelligent voice control system, you can activate massage programs simply by speaking.

Truefit™ Body Scanning

Through the use of special software and hardware, the chair is able to detect the user’s shape and size, providing customized massages.

Complete Calf™ Kneading + Oscillation

Lower leg relief at its best. To relieve sore, tired calf muscles, kneading rollers are located in the back of each leg and orbital oscillation is located on the sides. Human hands are gently imitated by the rollers and oscillation to relieve tension and pain, as well as restore circulation and flexibility.
