Human Touch, the creators of some amazing looking luxury massage chairs, have announced the impending release of an iPhone app capable of controlling the company's most state-of-the-art massage chair to date, the AcuTouch 9500. The AcuTouch 9500 is a robotic massage chair that features a fully customizable massage and wellness experience via a free iPhone app called HT-Connect.
“HT-Connect was designed to meet the growing needs of today’s consumers who rely on their wireless, personal devices to stay connected and live better,” said David Wood, chief executive officer of Human Touch, LLC. “By making this innovative app available to consumers, we’re able to deliver a user experience that offers the same personalized and professional massage that one would receive at a spa or from a real, professional massage therapist. With HT-Connect and the AcuTouch 9500, users can now fully enjoy the health and wellness benefits of daily massage in the comfort of their own home or office simply by pressing a button on their iPhone or iPod touch. There is no other technology available in the industry like HT-Connect, and we are extremely proud to be the first company to bring this technology to the marketplace.”The app will feature sixteen auto-programmed massages to suit your needs, the ability to set favorite chair positions and massages for easy access, espresso shots, which are short targeted massage programs for quick relief in just five minutes, and direct access to Human Touch's Wellness Council experts. Through the Wellness Council, you will be able to get wellness tips and philosophies and new professional massage programs, which are said to be updated frequently. The HT-Connect app syncs with the AcuTouch 9500 chair via Bluetooth, so you won't need a wireless network set-up, and you will be able to take your customized massage experience with you as long as their is another AcuTouch 9500 chair nearby. Alright, so the likelihood of that is slim, but it's still convenient. The iPhone and iPod touch HT-Connect app will be available for free in the App Store this May. You can sign up to receive more information about the HT-Connect app and AcuTouch 9500 chair on their website.
