Consumer Electronics Association Selects The Perfectly Balanced,
Ergonomically Advanced Hand-Held Massager As A Consumer Electronic Show Innovations Award Honoree

Long Beach, CA  – NOV. 11, 2008Human Touch®, the leading brand of high-technology, design-oriented massage chairs for today’s modern and traditional living spaces, today announced the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has named the Human Touch HT-1280 hand-held massager an Innovations 2009 Design and Engineering Award honoree in the Health and Wellness product category. CEA recognized the HT-1280 – also known as the “Swan Softouch Massager” – for its advanced technologies, which deliver a whisper-quiet, deep-muscle massage replicating the percussive techniques of expert massage therapists. The award was bestowed today at the Consumer Electronic Show’s (CES) New York Press Preview, the organization’s annual sneak peek of the hottest new products and upcoming technology trends.


The dual-speed HT-1280 is a perfectly balanced, ergonomic hand-held massager that incorporates many of Human Touch’s exclusive advanced technologies to deliver a whisper-quiet, deep-muscle massage. Its sleek yet sturdy design enables the HT-1280 to emulate the hands and techniques of professional massage therapists, delivering articulate and accurate energy bursts directly to targeted muscles instead of vibrating up the handle and arms. The HT-1280′s intelligently angled form allows users to pinpoint an ultra-quiet invigorating and soothing massage for hard-to-reach problem areas in the back and shoulders that tend to be most prone to tension, aches and pains. 



“We are thrilled the Consumer Electronics Association has recognized the ‘Swan’ for its innovative technology and ergonomically contoured design,” says Rich Jorgensen, chief marketing officer, Human Touch. “This brilliantly simple hand-held massager typifies Human Touch’s nearly 30-year commitment to developing products that help people feel better. The HT-1280′s advanced technology takes the vibration out of the arm and hand and focuses it all into the targeted muscles for a whisper-quiet, deep, therapeutic massage. It’s tremendously gratifying to be recognized for a product that people can use anywhere and anytime to improve their quality of life.”

The HT-1280 “SWAN” retails for $99 and is available at leading retailers across the country.  It can also be purchased directly from Human Touch at http://www.humantouch.com/ht-1280.html.
