Las Vegas World Market, Sept. 14 – 17

Showroom B900

LONG BEACH, Calif.–Human Touch®, the leading brand of high-technology, design-oriented massage chairs and products for today’s modern and traditional living spaces, is inviting Las Vegas World Market attendees to experience industry-leading massage chair technology at showroom B900, Sept. 14-17, 2009.

Located at the intersection of form, function and style, Human Touch’s WholeBodyTM HT-5040 Massage Chair and iJoy®-2310 Robotic Massage® deliver effective, invigorating massages that rid the mind and body of the aches, pains, tension and fatigue of everyday life.

The HT-5040, a revolutionary massage chair introduced to the consumer market in 2009, is the first in the Human Touch WholeBodyTM collection, which is comprised of the most advanced full-body massage systems available. The perfect blend of high-performance Robotic Massage®, modern design and luxurious comfort, the HT-5040 seamlessly integrates three soothing pre-programmed massages with design elements complementing any home or office environment. Its three pre-programmed massages (P1-Sore Muscle Relief, P2-Stress Therapy and P3-Back Wellness) utilize the same techniques used by professional massage therapists, delivering powerful and therapeutic relief to aching muscles.

The advanced HT-5040 massage chair is engineered with an ergonomically contoured backrest that features a quad-roller that can be concentrated from the neck down to the lower back. A deep-well foot and calf massager, which can also be converted to an idle footrest, refreshes the lower body with Human Touch’s patented upward, rolling motions, forcing the blood away from the feet and toward the body.

Hailed for its superior design and advanced technology, the iJoy®-2310 Robotic Massage® chair delivers muscle relaxation and relief by employing many of the same advanced massage features found in significantly more expensive massage chairs. Designed to fit contemporary styles and color choices, the iJoy®-2310 incorporates four professional therapist techniques – rolling, kneading, compression and percussion. Users can choose between three auto-massage programs – Upper Back Massage, Lower Back Massage and Full Back Massage, or a customized massage through a built-in control panel that puts each chair’s features at users’ fingertips.

Moreover, by removing or adding the Massage-Softening Pad, the massage intensity can be adjusted, allowing users to customize massages from gentle and relaxing, to focused and invigorating. Together with the chair’s 160 degrees reclining capability, the massage chair specifically target muscle soreness and back pain and provide a revitalizing, therapeutic massage with just the touch of a button.

“Both the HT-5040 and the iJoy®-2310 are two of Human Touch’s® most innovative and revolutionary products, and we are excited to be able to once again showcase the industry’s leading massage chair technology,” said Andrew Corkill, director of marketing at Human Touch®. “By incorporating innovative massage functions and proprietary massage chair technology, athletes, professionals and ordinary consumers of all shapes and sizes will benefit from the chairs’ multi-dimensional massage functionality as it therapeutically boosts the body’s circulatory and immune systems. Both chairs are the perfect solution for consumers seeking total relief that fits seamlessly into their lifestyle and budget.”

The HT-5040 WholeBodyTM Massage Chair has an MSRP of $2,299, while the iJoy®-2310 Robotic Massage® chair has an MSRP of $699. Both are available at leading retailers and directly from Human Touch at
