Battle of the Massage Rollers: S-Track vs. L-Track

Battle of the Massage Rollers: S-Track vs. L-Track

With the recent development of L-track massage chairs, people frequently ask us what the difference is between the S-track and L-track massage roller designs. Here, we break it down for you!

S-Track Massage Rollers

S-Track Massage RollersTraditionally, massage chairs have been designed with the natural S-shape of the human spine in mind—hence the S-track. Typical S-tracks range from about 28 to 31 inches.

Your spine bears the bulk of everyday stress and tension, which leads to pain, numbness, and an increased heart rate. The massage rollers follow a unique slide rail to this natural shape of your spine to soothe stress, alleviate tension, and provide long-lasting comfort on your back.

Some of the most popular massage chairs on the market consist of S-track rollers, such as Infinity’s IT-8500. The IT-8500’s massage track offers effective deep pressure massage along the spine, relieving your nerves of stiffness and fatigue. This S-track design will relax you with long, pressurized massage strokes from the cervical spine all the way through the lumbar region.

L-Track Massage Rollers

One of the most recent and growing developments in the massage chair industry is the L-track roller design. L-track rollers reach up to 49 inches in length. Like the S-track, the L-track works its way down from the neck and conforms to the spine’s natural shape; however, where the S-track stops at the lower back, the L-track continues massaging down to the gluteus muscles.L-track Massage Chair Rollers

An L-track chair offers about 35% more coverage than traditional chairs, providing a more effective massage for tense, tired glute and thigh muscles.

The innovative Infinity Iyashi, for example, boasts what is currently the longest massage stroke in the industry at 49 inches. Between the pressurized strokes on your spine and the unmatched reach, the Iyashi will leave you with a new sense of well-being.
