Buying Guide Tarsus Benches

Choosing a bench is not easy. How to think? Above all, it is important to think.

All the massage benches on the market are simply not as good. A cheap bench may last a term, while a Tarsus bench will last year after year. Therefore, a Tarsus bench also has a high second hand value if you want to sell it further.

We at Swehealth feel proud to sell and guide you in the world of Tarsus. Our advice and tips are based on almost 30 years of experience and tens of thousands of portable benches.

Since each therapist works in his own way based on his education, experience and the conditions of his own body, the guide must be general.

But rather general advice than none at all, right?

Basic rule: Choose model based on how you work, not based on your patients. Also ask you which bench model will help you in the long run.


MODELS

MODEL TE

Model TE recommended ... 

* If you work a lot with your neck and shoulders. The headrest included with the model TE can be regulated at an angle. The arms then rest on a supplied arm guard.

* If you plan to expand your business with an electric or hydraulic suspension. Both MA, TE and ZON can be supplemented with the undercarriage.

TE NOT recommended ...

* If you need to have the patients sitting sometimes, then you should have a ZON.

MODEL EASY

EASY recommended ...

* If you are traveling on a large part of the time. It weighs only 8-9 kg, the shortest of the benches, 160 cm.

* if you are quite short and therefore never need bench heights above 60 cm.

* If you are a naprapat, chiropractor or for other reasons you need an extra low bench (50 cm as the lowest, 60 cm at the maximum).

* if it is enough for you to raise your bench between 50-60 cm.

* If you need a maximum of 50 cm width.

EASY NOT recommended ...

* If you want to raise your bench higher than 60 cm, which is the maximum of LIGHT.

* If you want to expand your business with a subordinate in the long term. Only MA, TE, and ZON can be supplemented with a subset - LIGHT is too short.

* If you want your bench 190 cm long. LIGHT is 160 cm tall incl head restraints.

MODEL MA

MA recommended ...

* If you primarily work with tactile stimulation, healing or similar therapies that do not require head restraint control. Of course, it also works for regular massage.

* If you prefer the easiest, cheapest, Tarsus bench.

* If you need extra long bench. If you combine a MA and a head rest, you will have a bench that is approximately 220 cm long.

* If you plan to expand your business with an electric or hydraulic suspension. Both MA, TE and ZON can be supplemented with the undercarriage.

MA NOT RECOMMENDED ...

* If you need to have the patients sitting sometimes, then you should have a ZON.

* If you want to adjust the angle of the patient's head, then the TE with its adjustable headrest applies.

MODEL SUN

SUN recommended ...

* If you want the bench that is most flexible. You can have both sitting and lying patients, you can supplement ZON with a head restraint. The backrest can be raised / lowered and set in seven fixed positions, between 0-48º.

* If you plan to expand your business with an electric or hydraulic suspension. Both MA, TE and ZON can be supplemented with the undercarriage.

ZON NOT RECOMMENDED ...

* If you FRENCH work a lot with your neck and shoulders, then it's MA or TE you should have.

* if you only have the patients lying

* If you want a bench that is 55 cm wide or narrower, ZON is only 60 cm wide.

WIDTHS

Generally speaking, the narrower the bench you choose, the better you get to the bench and the man is massaging.

45-55 cm

45 or 50 cm width is often chosen when performing classical massage and similar therapies, but also 55 is quite common. However, the trend in recent years is that the standard for massagers is 50 cm.

60 cm and wider

Width 60 is recommended for therapies where the patient should sit or sit comfortably - usually quite long and in relaxed forms - such as Taktile stimulation, healing, reflexology and the like.

In this context you can mention the extra thick padding, + 2 cm, a total of 6 cm. However, the ZON bench has 6 cm padding as standard.

70 cm

Recommended if you need a bench to rest, for example, in a restroom at a company. As a reference, mention can be made of the fact that the brits in healthcare, at health centers and the like are usually 70 cm.
