Choosing a back massager in a passenger car.

Choosing a back massager in a car.

Date of publication: October 11, 2017. Category: Automotive.

Many believe that the car seat massager is installed only as a decorative accessory. However, professional drivers and those who spend a lot of time behind the wheel are not familiar with pain in the back, cervical spine and lower back. Circulatory problems and increased fatigue are also often a consequence of a sedentary lifestyle.

Therefore, such car simulators are simply necessary, especially since massage capes can be used not only in the car, but also at home. The main thing is to choose the best model, since today the choice of products is not limited. On sale you can find both cheaper passive-type capes and more expensive active massagers..


Such products were popular with truckers and taxi drivers in the 80s. Seat massagers in this type of car are spherical wooden or bone elements strung on flexible threads. When the driver changes his driving position, these products begin to massage the back. Thus, they act only under the pressure of the weight of the human body.

Therefore, we can conclude that such back massagers are ineffective..

However, they have several advantages. Firstly, products of this type are much cheaper. Secondly, they can be used as summer capes.

The wooden structure creates a space between the driver’s body and the seat for air to circulate. Therefore, on a hot summer day, the car owner can make his life easier. In winter, it is better not to use a wooden massager on the seat, as it will freeze very much overnight.

As a result, there is a risk of back cold. Therefore, it is better to consider more modern products..


Accessories of this type are characterized by a more complex design, which is driven by miniature electric motors. Air bags or rollers made of plastic or jade act as massage elements, creating vibration of varying intensity. Based on the active elements, these devices are of three types: roller, vibration and orthopedic.

Vibration models have only a point effect. Roller products are more effective, since they have not only a point, but also a wave and linear effect..

Orthopedic capes differ in their shape. However, they are more expensive than all others. Thanks to such an orthopedic back, the human body is in a relaxed state. In this case, the minimum load is exerted on the spine. The orthopedic back is considered the most effective.

Air chambers are installed in such products, which can both vibrate and work in a pulsating mode, relaxing the spinal and gluteal muscles..

The seat covers themselves are connected to the vehicle’s electrical system through the cigarette lighter. Moreover, they can be equipped with a heating system and other additional options, which should be clarified when choosing a product..

How to choose a massage cape.

When choosing a simulator that is installed on a car seat, it is worth considering several nuances:

Pay attention to the wooden elements of the passive massagers. If resins are present in the tree, then when they come into contact with the warm human body, they will emit harmful fumes. It is best to give preference to simulators or beech.

They last longer and do not crack. The shape of the active cape should be suitable not only for the car seat, but also for the person himself. The best are considered to be capes equipped with an additional pillow with a massager and side supports. The casing of the product must be made of quality material. Artificial and fabric bases are low cost, but genuine leather will last longer.

Check for a set of options for an electric trainer. The more functional it is, the more comfortable the driver will feel while driving. Therefore, preference should be given to models working in modes: kneading, patting and working out deep muscles.

It is better if there are several massage zones..

The control panel and infrared heating will not be superfluous, which has not only a general soothing, but also anti-inflammatory effect. Built-in timer helps to avoid overloading the device.

Of course, additional functionality will cost extra money. However, you can find inexpensive but quality products..

Top Models.

It is worth highlighting a few massagers that are most popular with drivers..


A massage cape from the German manufacturer Zenet will cost about 3,000 rubles. The electrical product consumes 20 W and has 10 working elements, which are arranged vertically.

Adjustment of the mode of operation of the cape is carried out using the control panel. In addition, the product is equipped with an infrared heating system. The device perfectly relaxes the cervical vertebrae, lower back and gluteal muscles.

In addition, the healing effect is achieved thanks to 8 built-in magnets that stimulate capillary blood circulation. A special field is created between the magnetic elements, which has a regenerating effect on the entire body as a whole..

In addition, the device is equipped with a timer. Model weighs 1.6 kg.

Sanitas SMG151.

This budget compact model weighing 0.6 kg costs no more than 1,800 rubles. For such a price, the German manufacturer Beurer offers a minimal set of functions, but they are quite enough to ensure that driving a car does not

bring fatigue and back pain..

The massager works in 2 modes, relaxing and stimulating the muscles of the neck, back and hips. Unit motor power 16 W.

Unlike the previous model, Sanitas SMG151 performs massage at the same points, so it will not be possible to choose the area of ​​influence on your own. There is also no control panel. But there is a heating function.

Quattromed 4-S.

A cape from another German manufacturer Casada will cost about 30,000 rubles. This cost is due to the fact that jade elements are used as roller massage products. Natural stone gradually heats up and has a positive effect on the human body, in particular, improves blood circulation and the functioning of the lymphatic system.

In addition to roller massage, the device also operates in shiatsu (kneading) and vibrating massager modes. In this case, all modes of operation can be combined, additionally connecting heating.

Thanks to the control panel, you can configure the device so that the massager turns on after a certain period of time. In addition, you can turn off the automatic mode of operation and go to passive work. In this case, the rollers will massage the back and neck when changing the driver’s position..

The spine is supported in an optimal anatomical position by additional carbon inserts.

The unit weighs 9 kg, and the power consumption is 25 watts. At the same time, the product can work both from the cigarette lighter in the car, and as a conventional roller massager, therefore it can be used at home.

Models from RestArt (China), Takasima (Taiwan), US Medica (USA) and Gezatone (France) have also proven themselves well..

In custody.

Despite the many benefits of these massage products, it should be borne in mind that they are not recommended for those suffering from chronic or recurrent skin conditions. In addition, the capes should not be used by pregnant women and people with spinal injuries. Kidney disease and inflammation are also incompatible with these massagers..
