AcuTouch™ 9500 Captivated CES Reporters, Bloggers and Analysts

Long Beach, CA – January 11, 2011 – Human Touch®, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs and other wellness solutions, simply wowed the media on January 5 at the “Digital Experience!”. Over 1,000 analysts and members of the press attended the “Digital Experience!”, the most important media event during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Many reporters, bloggers and analysts took the time to wait in line for a five-minute demonstration before hitting the CES floor the next day. Erik Malinowski from WIRED talked about his “moment of temporary bliss” while trying out the chair, and Gizmag’s Darren Quick shared a great story about the “comforting embrace” of the AcuTouch™ 9500 with HT-Connect™.

Human Touch® showcased the AcuTouch™ 9500 at Caesar’s Palace. And while this year’s CES predominantly displayed a variety of tablets, Human Touch® turned many heads with its creative use of HT Connect, the iPhone and iPad app that delivers a more targeted and personalized wellness experience.   Sharon Vaknin from, Veronica Belmont from Tekzilla, and Will Smith from Tested were among the number of correspondents that covered AcuTouch™ 9500 in their CES reports, and left the Human Touch® display amazed with the range of functions this massage chair can offer.

The biggest hit was the chair’s Acupoint® Detection System that presented guests with a range of customizable options. Director of Marketing, Andrew Corkill, Vice President of Design, David Potter and Channel Marketing Manager, Victoria Lladoc demonstrated to the guests how the system scans the entire length of the back, mapping key pressure points for the ultimate massage experience.
