    Hammacher Foldaway Massage Chair

    The Foldaway Massage Chair not only delivers a relaxing massage to the legs, feet, back and buttocks – it folds up into a colorful, funky-looking footstool that can be used as an extra piece of furniture or stored neatly away.

    The footwells on the massage chair have air cells along the sides. These deliver a kneading and compression massage to the calves and ankles as they inflate and deflate, invigorating tired, tight muscles. The toes, arches and soles of the feet are treated to a deep-penetrating acupressure massage via finger-like nodes as the back and buttocks are soothed and relieved via expanding and contracting air cells in the seat. These air cells also help to gently stretch the hips and waist.

    There are four 15 minute massage programs to choose from. These programs have been specifically developed by a Japanese Shiatsu specialist. If you prefer, the massage can be focused on one particular area of the body and the intensity of the massage can be adjusted via a control panel contained in the footwell.

    To close the chair, you simply lift the back leg. The unit then folds into a neat and compact 22″ (55.9cm) x 19″ (48.3cm) cube which can be used as an ottoman or stored away in a closet or spare room.

    The chair comes in ivory, red or black and when it is open, measures 39″ x 19″ x 27″ and weighs 49 pounds. It is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $799.95. (
