Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Multiple settings. Comfortable massage. Nice heat
Cons:Not machine washable
The Bottom Line: This was a good value at $49. It's comfortable, restful and gives good heat.
I brought home a Homedics Massager (Homedics Therapist Select Shiatsu Massaging Cushion ) for my wife two years ago. I liked it but it was too "invigorating" for her. We returned it. After all, it was a gift for her. She recently came home with this unit the Homedic 8 point massage and heat Camel Comfort Cushion model. This one "fits just right".

This product can be used at home, office or car. It's advertised as portable and even though it doesn't come with a carry bag of any sort, it does fold up into a low weight, small bundle. that can be transported in the box it came in or a plastic shopping bag. That's convenient
The massage/heater comes with two adapters. One is for the car and one for home or office. Built into the unit and stored in a pocket sewed into the cushion is a controller that is directly wired to the cushion and cannot get lost. Another good feature.
The control has five sets of buttons. Four are for each of the massage points. One for the butt, one for lower back and the other two are for the middle and top back areas. It does not go as high as the neck. Each of those buttons have three positions, Off, Low and High. Each button controls two points on each side of the spine. Another button on the bottom starts the heat. An LED light at each position lets you know if it is on or off.
The vibration at each point is gentle even at the higher massage point. It does however give a nice massage feeling but certainly not deep rubbing. The 8 motors a quiet so we don't have annoying noise or have to turn up the TV volume.
The heat is what my wife likes. We use our fireplace in the winter all the time and when we keep the room temperature down she enjoys feeling the radiant heat. This gives at the fireplace can't do.
The heat automatically shuts off when the body is removed from the cushion. I like that safety feature too.
The cushion has velcro straps to help attach it to various sized chairs and seats. It adapts well. The cushion itself is soft. This one is a camel colour. My wife does put a light blanket over it to keep it from getting dirty too quickly. Our dog loves to sit on her chair when alone in the room. The cushion is not machine washable. It can only be spot cleaned. The straps can come off for cleaning.
The last Homedics was sent on its way as being too vigorous. This one is just right.
Homedics Therapist Select Shiatsu Massaging Cushion This one I would have kept.
