I just received an email late yesterday from Infinite Therapeutics officially announcing their new IT-8500 massage chair. I mentioned it last week but now we have the official announcement. I will have this chair up on our site very soon. If you wish to order it in the meantime, just give me a call at 801-651-2026 and I will take care of it over the phone for you.
Last week when I mentioned the new features, I was not sure what the new features actually meant. Now, we have a written description of each of the new features. From the official email, here are the descriptions:
1. Spinal Correction –An advanced upper body airbag system allows for a firm shoulder retraction in conjunction with a lower extremity grip and stretch feature (this is what I figured it would be…similar to what Inada’s Doctor’s Choice 3A chair does). These operations are performed simultaneously as the main back roller massagers moves up and down the spine and the shiatsu swivel seat swings the hips from side to side. This advanced multi-functional system provides for an industry leading state of the art spinal correction.
2. Accu-Roll Shoulder Massage – Sensor driven targeted massage encompasses the entire shoulder region for the most comprehensive upper body massage available (still not clear if this is an airbag or a roller system).
3. Tru-Grip V Stretch – The advanced programming of the IT-8500 optimizes a full body grip enabling a spinal stretch that is unsurpassed in the industry (most of the new massage chairs incorporate arm, shoulder, foot, and calf airbags to grab the body while the chair back and ottoman raise and lower. It sounds like the IT-8500 will do that too).
4. Inter-sound Technology –Soft intimate music designed for the pleasure of the user. A redesigned sound system delivers high quality sound inward and exclusively for the benefit of the user. Inter-sound creates the optimal setting for relaxation and stress reduction (the IT-8200 delivers sound outward away from the head of the user. Seems like this new system will have speakers pointed inward toward the user. Still not sure if there is anything more to this than any other massage chair music system).
5. Headphone Port – Taking Inter-sound to the next level the Infinity IT-8500 offers the luxury of “your world” total privacy. Plug in your favorite headphones and with the rest of the real world noise eliminated enjoy “your world of relaxation” (kinda nice if you want to keep the music to yourself and not disturb those around you).
I’ll share more as I learn more. We will have more images up when the chair is posted on the site.
