Human Touch, according to their website, is the #1 supplier of massage chairs in the United States and has been creating these chairs for over 30 years. While the massage chairs aren’t overly common in households, just about every American who ever stepped into a Sharper Image store (now defunct) has experienced what a Human Touch chair can do. The chair pulses at all sorts of crazy speeds, mimicking the feel of hundreds of little massage therapists working your back, and then uses a huge roller thing to do a deep tissue massage on your neck. It’s really amazing that I never got kicked out of Sharper Image for hogging the chairs.
Starting on October 18th, Human Touch will begin selling its first iOS device controlled massage chair, the AcuTouch™ 9500. The chair works via Bluetooth in conjunction with Human Touch’s first app, HT-Connect, which gives you all sorts of control over your chair. Instead of simply getting a massage via a remote control setting, the app gives you expertly designed massage sessions formulated by members of the Human Touch® Wellness Council. Because the chair is controlled with an app, new sessions are constantly being added to the database so you’ll never get tired of the same boring routine.
David Potter, Vice President of Design, Human Touch, LLC, says that, “The AcuTouch™ 9500 is the only massage chair that provides an anatomic interface between the user’s needs and the advanced features of Human Touch® massage technology. Just one touch where you want to feel better and the AcuTouch™ 9500 goes to work delivering relief in as little as 5 minutes. HT-Connect™ knows who you are, what you need, and where you need it. And it happens seamlessly through a wireless, Bluetooth® connection. It’s your own personal valet to feel better everywhere.”
The app is available for free, but the required chair costs $5,999 or you can buy-direct for $4,999 — a small price for iOS-powered comfort perfection. Pick one up online today!
