High Point, NC (High Point Market) – April 20, 2010 – After a three year absence, Human Touch®, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs, Perfect Chair® Recliners, and other wellness solutions, has returned to High Point Market (Apr. 17-22) in showroom location IHFC-H517 to showcase its exciting, new massage chair and wellness solution, HT-Connect™/AcuTouch™ 9500, in addition to its other state-of-the-art massage chairs and Perfect Chair® Recliners.
“High Point Market is one of the most important trade shows of the year for the design and home furnishings industry, and we are extremely glad to be a part of it,” said Andrew Cohen, President of Human Touch®. “Our decision to show again at High Point Market after a three-year absence was prompted by the large, forecasted attendance among furnishings dealers and retailers at this spring’s event, and the industry’s enthusiastic response to our official summer launch of HT-Connect™/AcuTouch™ 9500, the first massage chair and wellness solution in history to work with the popular iPhone and iPod touch. We’re looking forward to showing the industry this exciting, new product, and to a very successful show.”
Available this summer as a free download from the Apple App Store, HT-Connect™ is the first wellness solution allowing users to personalize the robotic massage chair to their individual wellness needs. HT-Connect™ will interface with Human Touch’s newest, most state-of-the-art massage chair, the AcuTouch™ 9500. By seamlessly interfacing with HT-Connect™, the new AcuTouch™ 9500 massage chair will be the first robotic massage chair to offer individuals a fully customized massage and wellness experience by providing instant access to a wealth of massage programs, expertise, and user-friendly applications, all at their fingertips via Bluetooth wireless connection on an iPhone or iPod touch. The AcuTouch™ 9500 will also be available for retail sale in the U.S. in June at www.humantouch.com or leading retailers nationwide (MSRP: $5,999).
Other Human Touch® products that are currently on display at High Point Market include:
- Zero-Gravity Perfect Chair® Recliners, sleek and elegantly designed recliners that transform the body into a total state of relaxation. Featuring zero-gravity engineering, which places the body in a NASA-inspired neutral body (virtually weightless) position, allows earth’s gravity to be eliminated from the body for a head-to-toe relaxation experience. In this physician-recommended posture, the spine, hip, and knee joints are on or close to the balanced midpoint of the muscles, resulting in maximum relaxation and minimum muscle tension.
- HT® Massage Chairs, including the award-winning AcuTouch™ HT-7450 zero-gravity massage chair and ThermoStretch™ HT-7120 massage chair. The AcuTouch™ HT-7450 incorporates zero-gravity engineering and patented Human Touch Technology®, which replicates the personal touch of a human massage therapist, to provide the ultimate massage therapy and wellness experience behind a beautifully designed and upholstered chair. HT-7450 also includes a built-in calf massager for an invigorating calf massage. ThermoStretch™ HT-7120 is one of Human Touch’s top-of-the-line massage chairs and the only massage chair in its price range to feature Massage Comfort Control. This advanced technology allows the user to electronically adjust the comfort setting of the backrest and transform this powerful massage chair into a luxurious comfortable home theater chair.
- CirQlation™ foot & calf massagers, targeted-relief products designed to complement users’ Human Touch® massage chair experience by providing a therapeutic foot & calf massage.
