Instructions for AntiGravity Recliner Use

Your AntiGravity recliner is designed to provide relaxation in a variety of positions utilizing the easy-lock levers on each side of the armrests. The ideal position for optimum relaxation is one in which the feet are above the heart. This position will reduce pressure on the spine and help relieve muscle tension.

NOTE: The AntiGravity recliner design has a weight limit of 300 pounds. Persons exceeding this body weight should not use this recliner.

  • Before sitting in the AntiGravity recliner, be sure it is in the complete upright position by pushing the levers forward toward the footrest.
  • Sit in the chair and lean back slowly. Sitting all the way back in the seat will make it easier to recline. To adjust the angle of the chair, hold on to the armrests and lean back or forward until you reach the desired position. Lock the position into place by pulling the levers back.
  • The AnitGravity recliner’s ergonomic design ensures proper spine alignment in any of its 7 reclining positions.
  • The footrest may be raised by pulling it upward. Each position will sound with a click. To lower the footrest, raise it until it stops and then push it back towards the floor.
  • Before getting out of the AntiGravity recliner, be sure to return it to its full upright position and lock into place by pulling the easy-lock levers back.
  • Stand up using the armrests for support.

Tip: To help you recline, unlock the levers and slowly raise your hands above your head and lean back. Lock in your desired position by pulling the levers back. To sit upright, unlock the levers and move hands slowly towards your knees while leaning slightly forward. This will bring the recliner back to its full upright position.

Power Adaptor Instructions
Connect the adaptor jack to the massage cushion’s power receptacle located along the right
side of the cushion. Once inserted, plug the other end into an AC power outlet. Use only the AC
power adaptor provided with this unit.

AC Power Adaptor Information
Your massage cushion is powered by an attached custom AC home adaptor. Use only the
supplied AC home adaptor as other similar-looking adaptors may cause irreparable damage to
the unit and will void your warranty.

Massage Cushion and Hand Control Instructions

Press the POWER button once to activate the hand controller. The LCD screen will illuminate.
To deactivate, press again.

To activate the heat function, your back must first be pushed against the cushion. Once resting
comfortably, press the HEAT button once. The word “HEAT” will be displayed on the LCD screen to indicate the heat is on.

NOTE: When selecting the heat feature with massaging action, there will be a slight decrease in
the strength of the massage output. This adjustment is normal and should not be interpreted as a

Massage Strength

selection will be displayed on the LCD screen. You can further customize your massage by
targeting body zones and varying the speed and intensity within each style.

Automatic Shut Off

The AntiGravity recliner has been designed for convenience and safety. As a special precaution against falling asleep while using the unit, or leaving the unit on while it is still in operation, we’ve programmed it to automatically stop working 60 minutes after receiving your last command. Any time you change massage functions, the timer will reset. This special feature should not be considered as a substitute for OFF. Always remember to turn your unit off when not in use.

Please Note:
For added protection of your unit: When the power is on but no function is selected or only the HEAT function is chosen with no massage function selected, the unit will automatically shut off after 15 minutes.


To Store: Place the hand control into the custom storage pouch which hangs from the right side armrest . Avoid contact with sharp edges or pointed objects which might damage/puncture the fabric.

To Clean: Disconnect massage cushion from power source before cleaning. The massage cushion and hand control may be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth only.

  • The massage cushion is not machine washable and must not come into contact with water or any other liquids.
  • Do not immerse into liquids to clean.
  • Never use abrasive cleaners, brushes, gasoline, kerosene, polish or paint thinner to clean.
  • Do not attempt to repair your AntiGravity recliner. There are no user serviceable parts. For service, send the unit to the HoMedics service address listed in the warranty section.
