What to Look for When Buying an Electric Massage Table

How Noisy the Table Is

You want your electric/hydraulic table to be as quiet as possible when being used. A lot of manufacturers will say their table is ‘silent’ when in operation. This doesn’t always mean it’s actually silent. Try and read some customer feedback that confirms just how noisy the table actually is.

How High and Low the Table Goes

The total range of motion is another feature that varies greatly from product to product. Consider what you’re using the table for. If you have patients with a short range of motion make sure the table lowers close to the floor.

How Fast the Table Is

Try and find out how fast the table moves. Of course you’re not trying to win any races. But some tables are painfully slow and can be quite disappointing.

What Features the Table Has

If your budget allows, go outside of just the basic massage table. You can get some useful features like leg extensions, arm rests and head rests. Even cupboard space underneath and different speed settings. All tables are not created equal. If you want a table with extra thick padding for example check out the Oakworks hydraulic massage table.

How You Control the Table

Older models used a hand control, or even buttons on the side of the table. It’s more popular, and easier to use foot controls in my opinion. Look for either just foot controls, or foot and hand.

What Kind of Warranty the Table Comes With

Power lift massage tables are not cheap. If you’re spending several thousand of dollars you want to know you’re getting a good warranty. You always will in my experience, but make sure you’re aware of the terms.
