DIFFERENCES

Design

Osaki OS-4000 vs Ogawa Refesh

The OS-4000 has a light-med depth massage chair on its standard setting. To make it deeper, you have to remove the padding and recline the chair back. It also has a head pillow with airbags that push down on the shoulders. This is nice, but not as good as having the rollers directly on the back.

Neck & Shoulder Massage

The OS-4000 has a light-med depth massage chair on its standard setting. To make it deeper, you have to remove the padding and recline the chair back. It also has a head pillow with airbags that push down on the shoulders. This is nice, but not as good as having the rollers directly on the back.

Ogawa Refresh

The Refresh has a med-deep massage and has SmartCurve technology that allows for a much deeper neck massage on its standard setting. It also is able to squeeze and massage the sides of the neck. The neck massage is one of the best features on the Refresh, and it’s much deeper than the OS-4000.

Shoulder Airbags

Osaki OS-4000

The Osaki OS-4000 shoulder airbags come around the shoulders and is tight on some users. This is the main reason we get returns for this chair, and most of our customers end up exchanging for a chair with a little more room.

Ogawa Refresh

The Ogawa Refresh has flared out shoulder airbags, which you can see in the picture. This allows users with broader shoulders to fit more comfortably since they do not wrap around the entire shoulder.

Hip Airbags

Osaki 4000 vs Ogawa Refresh - Hip Airbags

Osaki OS-4000

The Osaki OS-4000 has hip airbags that squeeze on the sides of the hips and legs applying a compression massage. This is a great feature if you have tight IT Bands (Iliotibial Bands).

Ogawa Refresh

The Ogawa Refresh does not have hip airbags. This is great for individuals who have wider hips. This is because sometimes the hip airbags can squeeze too tight making the massage uncomfortable.
