What We Look for & How We Rate Chairs Compared to Other Models

Reclining Feature

One of the most notable features of this chair is the reclining feature. It allows me to adjust the angle of the chair to my liking, providing me with maximum comfort during the massage. This feature is particularly useful when I want to relax and unwind after a long day at work.

Intensity settings & Coverage Area

Another benefit of the Luraco i9 is the intensity settings and coverage area. With five intensity levels to choose from, I can customize my massage experience to meet my needs. Additionally, the chair has a broad coverage area, ensuring that all of my muscles receive the attention they need.

Heating Feature

The heating feature is also a significant benefit. The chair’s heat therapy function helps to relax and loosen my muscles, making the massage more effective. The heat function is also helpful in the colder months when I need a little extra warmth.

Kneading feature

The kneading feature is another standout benefit. The chair’s rollers provide deep tissue massage, targeting specific muscles in my body. This feature has been particularly useful in reducing muscle tension and improving my overall flexibility.

User Experience & Ease Of Use

In terms of user experience and ease of use, the Luraco i9 is incredibly intuitive. Its touchscreen controller is simple to navigate, and I can easily adjust the massage settings to suit my preferences. The chair also has Bluetooth connectivity, allowing me to listen to music while receiving a massage.

Space Saving

The space-saving design is also a significant benefit of the Luraco i9. It can be placed against a wall without taking up too much space, making it an excellent option for those with limited space.

Design and Aesthetics

The design and aesthetics of the chair are also noteworthy. The chair has a sleek, modern design that complements the decor of any room. Its leather upholstery is also easy to clean and maintain.


The warranty offered by Luraco is another advantage. The chair comes with a three-year warranty, giving me peace of mind that I am investing in a reliable product.

Unique Technology & Features

The Luraco i9 also features unique technology features. Its advanced sensor technology detects the shape and size of my body, providing a customized massage experience. The chair also has airbags that provide additional pressure and relief to my muscles.

Brand Reliability & Support

Luraco’s brand reliability and support give me confidence that I am investing in a quality product.

My Personal Experience Using Luraco i9 Massage Chair

The Luraco i9 Medical Massage Chair is a state-of-the-art American-made massage chair, full of innovative and advanced features that set it apart from the competition. As someone with extensive experience in the massage chair industry, I can confidently say that the Luraco i9 is a game-changer.

What makes this chair so unique is its patented Split L Track Frame, which combines the best features of both L-Track and S-Track chairs, delivering a premium stretch massage that is unparalleled in the market. The Butterfly Pattern Rollers and Arm Massage Rollers with Heat are also patented features that make the i9 stand out.

The chair’s Easy Access Sliding Arms feature is “patent allowed” and offers an easier way for elderly people or those with physical challenges to sitting down while taking up less space than previous side-swinging arms. This is just one of the many ways in which Luraco has put user experience and accessibility at the forefront of its design.

The chair’s voice response and control, along with its 5 user profiles, make it a breeze to customize the massage experience according to personal preferences. The nine presets, including Health, Soft, Quick, Morning, Night, Sport, Shiatsu, Stretch, and TV, offer a range of massage experiences tailored to the needs of the user.

The chair also boasts a triple-layer sole massage, built-in Bluetooth speakers, a user-friendly touchscreen keypad, and a Fast and Accurate Body Scan feature that ensures a personalized massage experience. Additionally, the patented adjustable shoulder and bicep airbags, along with the Full Leather Chair, make the Luraco i9 the epitome of luxury and comfort.

The foot and calf rollers, along with the three-layered footrest, provide intense massages that are unmatched by other chairs in the market. The Heat Therapy feature targeting three areas (hands, lower back, and feet) offers a complete massage experience that relaxes and rejuvenates.

The improved air massage, along with the new airbag locations, is another standout feature of the Luraco i9. The four sections of arm rollers that are patent-pending, and the patented calf massage rollers, are additional features that make the i9 a must-have for anyone who wants an unparalleled massage experience.

In conclusion, as someone who has extensive experience in the massage chair industry, I highly recommend the Luraco i9 Medical Massage Chair. Its advanced and patented features, combined with its user-friendly design and luxury-level materials, make it a top contender in the market. It is truly an American-made engineering breakthrough that delivers superior and medicinal massages.

What Makes Luraco i9 Massage Chair Stand Out from the Competition?

The Luraco i9 massage chair stands out from the competition due to its unique features and advanced technology. It is made by Luraco Technologies, makers of the “World’s #1 Medical Massage Chairs”®.

Some of its standout features include:

-The first-of-its-kind Massage Track. The new PATENTED SPLIT L-TRACK which delivers all the benefits of an L-Track chair while also allowing for the superior stretch functions of an S-Track.
-PATENTED POWERED EASY-ENTRY ARMRESTS that allow users to easily enter and exit.
-First and Only in the Industry with HAND STRETCHING BY POWERED ARMREST ACTUATOR (Patent Pending).
-Patented 3D “BUTTERFLY TECHNOLOGY” Robotic Rollers give an even closer feel to an actual hands-on massage.

Compared to Other Chairs

Luraco i9 medical massage chair is one of the world’s best 3 chairs. The biggest downside of this chair is that it is not a space saver. The other 2 chairs that contain space-saving features are OHCO M.8 and Human Touch Super Novo.

Human Touch Super Novo

See Price
Human Touch Super Novo is a great massage chair with a space-saving design. If you like deep and intense massage, Super Novo is one of the better choices. Luraco i9 medical massage chair is still coming out as a better chair after our tests and review process. It holds 7 patents, has the best whole body heat system, and has all of the advanced features you can expect from a massage chair. If you are really tall and heavy, stick with Luraco.

OHCO M.8 is the one of best chairs available right now and it is for people who care about design, technology, and function. Neck/Head Airbags provide own of the best head and neck massages available among any chairs. If you are tall and heavy go with Luraco, otherwise this massage chair is the best on a market right now. It is also a space saver.

You can rely on unique calf rollers and a good strech program.

There are no Neck and Head airbags, but roller neck massage is still impressive. Customer support is one of the best with Luraco. See our suggestions for the top massage chairs here.

As you can see, both chairs offer a range of massage techniques, body scanning, zero gravity, heat therapy, foot rollers, and airbags. However, the Luraco i9 offers more massage techniques and programs, as well as more airbags and user memory settings.

The OHCO M.8, on the other hand, offers more massage programs, making it more customizable to your specific needs. Additionally, both chairs come with Bluetooth speakers and a 5-year warranty.

Luraco i9 Massage Chair Notable Benefits & Features

Luraco Technologies sets out to prove that massage chairs are not all the same and that AMERICAN-MADE chairs are the most promising! Dedicated to delivering therapeutic and superior massages, Luraco spent the last three years developing the Luraco i9 Medical Massage Chair!

Patented Split L-Track

Both the L-Track and S-Track were used in the past to make chairs (both have good features, but both have limits). With the SPLIT L-TRACK, you can enjoy all the benefits of an L-Track chair as well as a premium “stretch” massage seen in S-Track models. America’s engineering power is evident in this engineering breakthrough!

i9 split track

60″ Roller Track

There is no massage chair on the market with a longer track than the Luraco i9 medical massage chair. Due to this, this massage chair can deliver neck massage for people up to 6’10” tall…an industry first.

Patented “Butterfly Technology Rollers” with an Enhances 3D Robotic System

A unique 3D roller action s offered by the new BUTTERFLY technology. Please don’t be misled by other brands that call themselves 4D or 5D. Luraco doesn’t play games with marketing terms or call our chairs anything more than “3D”. Heat, music, speed, and rhythm adjustments are all also available on the i9 in addition to the three dimensions of the universe (height, width, depth). Despite Luraco’s efforts to avoid misleading consumers, the i9 could be misconstrued as 7D.

Four Sections of Arm Rollers

With the Super Novo, you can go beyond 3D Massage. A 4D program is available with variable speed upping the ante. It simulates the feeling of a real person massaging you by speeding up and slowing down mid-stroke. In different parts of your body, you can choose different pressures and speeds.


Patented Foot & Calf Rollers

For a deeper treatment of the soles of the feet, intensive calf massages and triple rollers are used. There are more massage roller locations on the i9, allowing for a more authentic massage experience



Since the i9 has so many options, Luraco realized that it will be used by more than one person in most homes. With the i9, you can save massage chair settings for up to 5 different users!


Luraco was the first brand to introduce touchscreen technology to massage chairs, just like iPhones! There are two U.S. patents on Luraco Remotes, and they are not only fast, but also easy, convenient, intuitive, and stylish.

Luraco Warranty

The manufacturer’s warranty on Luraco products for home use is 5 years. For the first three years, you will receive free parts and labor with in-home service. The frame is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty for 5 years against defects in material and workmanship.

Other Luraco i9 Modifications & Differences

Luraco i9 MAX

The i9 Max Edition will cost $13,490 (an increase of $1000 dollars over the original). Despite some changes and additions, it will have the same characteristics as the original i9:

  • Massage and comfort for the neck and shoulders have been improved. The positioning of their necks and heads wasn’t comfortable for some. As the rollers worked lower down the spine, Luraco added a thin pad to provide some head support. The roller of the i9 Max appears to come forward more in the neck and head area, providing greater support.
  • An armrest actuator powered by Luraco can stretch the hands. Luraco Technologies has yet another patent pending. A massage chair actuator usually makes it possible for a part of the massage chair to move. I haven’t seen it yet or been explained how it works. During the stretching program in this massage chair, I suspect there is a movable pull of the hand, either out or down.
  • An easy-entry powered armrest with a new patented design. The original i9 presented sliding armrests that could be manually adjusted, allowing the user to slide either armrest back for easy entry and exit.
  • An easy-entry powered armrest with a new patented design. The original i9 presented sliding armrests that could be manually adjusted, allowing the user to slide either armrest back for easy entry and exit. It was also necessary for the user to slide the armrests manually. There is also mention in the literature that the armrests can be adjusted forward or back to accommodate both short and long arms. It will be possible to adjust the armrests’ position by pressing a button located on the side of the armrests.
  • New USB port for phone charging.
  • A built-in modem will enable each new i9 to be updated as Luraco makes changes to its software. Luraco i9 Max chairs can be updated via WiFi with each new software update. Although other companies have proposed this idea before, this is the first time it’s actually been implemented.


Luraco i9 Max Special Edition

Compared to the original Custom Edition, the Luraco i9 Max Special Edition will cost $14,990. There will be no differences between the i9 Max Special Edition and the i9 Max, except for the following features:

  • Dual rollers have been added to the hinged L-track roller configuration of the Special Edition. It was quite popular when it was part of the i7+ model. i9 Max Special Edition has a stronger neck and shoulder massage than the old i7+ and is closer to what the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid has to offer ( dual rollers). Dual rollers are famous because they provide a strong massage for the neck and shoulders. Both quad roller and dual roller configurations still feature the patented “Butterfly Technology.”
  • The Level 1 package includes software customization. Luraco’s literature mentions this feature as having “special keypad screens showing ownership, e.g. This massage chair is specially made for John Smith”. I9 Custom Editions are similar to this.
  • To restore the chair to a neutral upright position, back up the emergency power. If there is a power outage, the chair can be easily exited.

With the dual rollers mentioned above in point #1, the i9 Max Special Edition will have the same features as the original i9 Custom Edition.


Luraco i9 Max Billionaire Edition

The i9 Max Special Edition chair retails for $29,990 and has all of the following features:

The Level 2 package includes software customization. The brochure literature notes the same feature as the Special Edition.

This special embedded software version allows the user to customize the massage chair performance in all auto modes for the keypad PCB, motherboard PCB, and daughterboard PCB. 

On the welcome screen of the remote control, the owner’s picture appears.


Luraco i9 Max Royal Edition

There is a price tag of $49,990 on this massage chair. In addition to all the features of the i9 Max Billionaire, it has the following additional features:

  1. The owner’s nameplate is made of 18K gold. According to them, it’s a solid gold block!
  2. Remote control cover plated in 18K gold.
  3. Armrests and footrests are trimmed in 18K gold.
  4. The arms of the massage robot are plated with 18K gold.


What Do Users Say About Luraco i9 Medical Massage Chair?

There are many bells and whistles on this chair, including full leather. In addition, the Luraco I9 Massage chair is MADE IN THE USA.

One of my favorite features of the chair is the amazing customization options, but that customization can occasionally e a bit frustrating. You’ll find parts you like and others you don’t like if you run through the various preset program cycles. If you don’t like any part of a particular massage program, you can adjust the intensity of that section. One of the programs, for example, uses shiatsu on my lower back that I do not like. It still feels like I’m being punched in the back, even if I adjust the intensity to a 1. The example is somewhat exaggerated, but it illustrates the love/hate relationship that can develop after a first encounter. To gain a better understanding of the chair’s capabilities, I recommend that you go through all the programs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much wall space does the Luraco iRobotics 9 need to recline?

Chairs must have a minimum clearance of 30 inches from their fronts to walls, 30 inches from their backrests to walls, and 12 inches from their closest armrests to walls.

How many heat adjustment settings are there on the i9?

Heat levels range from 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest.

Final Thoughts

You will love Luraco i9 chair if you like premium design and USA-made quality. Seven U.S. patents have already been granted to the chair, with several more pending. It includes unique features, such as sliding doors (for easy access) and adjustable shoulder and bicep air bags, to help you reach exactly where you want. Additionally, it is one of the quietest chairs on the market. The chair also accommodates people up to 6’10”, making it one of the best chairs for tall people.
