    Abstract: A massage device (10) includes a seat (12), a backrest (13), and an ottoman (14). The ottoman (14) includes a leg rest (14a) and a foot rest (14)b on one side, and a leg placing portion (14c), on which legs of a user can be placed, on the other side. Also, the ottoman (14) is supported to be rotational by a support shaft (16a) provided on a pair of support frames (16) of the seat (12) to extend in the lateral direction. By rotating the ottoman (14), the ottoman (14) is shifted between a massage capable state, in which recesses (14a, 14b) are exposed to the front of the seat (12), and a leg placing state, in which the leg placing portion (14c) is exposed to the front of the seat (12). The leg rest (14a) of the ottoman 14 includes airbags. The foot rest (14b) is supported to be slidable with respect to the leg rest (14a).

  • Publication number: 20120157896
    Abstract: A massage device (10) includes a seat (12), a backrest (13), and an ottoman (14). Airbags (23), which serve as massage means, are provided on one side of the ottoman (14). A leg placing portion (14c), on which legs of a user can be placed, is provided on the other side, which is the opposite side. The ottoman (14) is rotatably supported by a rotary shaft (16a), which extends in a lateral direction. The ottoman (14) is selectively switched between a massage capable state and a leg placing state by rotating the ottoman (14). The ottoman (14) includes a leg rest (14a) and a foot rest (14b). The foot rest (14b) is formed to rotate independently. The foot rest (14b) has urging members (31). The urging members (31) urge the distal end of the foot rest (14b) that is at the front in the massage capable state toward the rotary shaft (16a) by a predetermined force.
