There are also 2 really loud and annoying popping sounds as it moves up and down its track you can feel them and theyre very loud. Not that its a big deal but it is kinda a big deal if Im trying to relax and every 20 seconds theres a lurch and a popping cracking sound ...
My husband and I were looking into massage cushions after experiencing the one my dad bought my mom for Christmas. We wound up deciding on this more expensive one after some research. It performs beautifully. Let's go over the functions separately.
Kneading - This is my favorite function by far. The four balls roll in localized areas while the whole quad moves up and down your back. It's perfect for working out knots, especially in the upper back (which we both struggle with)
Rolling - this is a much gentler function, and one I usually like to finish with after working out a particularly sore back. The balls roll smoothly in place while the quad goes up and down, like a good massage therapist doing smooth and wide strokes.
Tapping - this is the function we use the least, but it is still very helpful when needed. The balls individually pound your back rapidly. It can be a very good precursor when working on a highly knotted and tense back.
The other functions are excellent too. The localized massages - upper and lower - cover a good, wide area of the back while being focused enough to work on problem areas. The heat is amazing, a perfect addition that deepens the effects of any of these massages. The full back massage is very customize-able with its perfect fit function. I'm 5' tall and my husband is 6', it fits us both perfectly. I can even get it to do a bit of my neck.
The spot function is my FAVORITE FUNCTION. I get particular knots in my shoulder blades and it's bliss to sit back and have them kneaded out for 15 gently heated minutes. (or sometimes 30)
We've been using this chair regularly (3-4 times a week each) for a month and it has held up with zero complications.
The one real downside to this cushion is that it only works well on certain chairs. It may look like it can hook up to any chair at all, but it works best with stiff backed and relatively stiff seated chairs (office chairs and dining chairs work well) Because of the design of the cushion, it can also be slightly uncomfortable on short-seated chairs. Our dining chairs (which is what I use it on) have seats that are only about a foot long, and the thickness of the back of the cushion shortens that to about 11-10 inches. A chair with a longer seat would be much more comfortable, as it would compensate for the cushion's back.
Yes it does give multiple massage options (although the kneading is by far the most useful in my opinion) and the heat is a nice bonus, but my biggest complaint is that it does a pretty poor job of the UPPER BACK. I'm only 5'8" and my wife is 5' and this doesn't do much for either of us above our shoulder blades. If you only want mid and lower back massages then this might work for you but it's far from a 'full back' massage cushion.

The quality and build seem quite good, though the fabric that covers the nodes is very thin. After one week of use, there's already a small little hole in mine. I'm happy to return this.
