I’d like to thank Steffanie, my commercial sales manager, for writing this little review and giving us her input on this new AcuTouch massage chair and iPhone app from Human Touch:
Human Touch has a new technology- minded massage chair in the works to come out in May. It is called the AcuTouch 9500 massage chair. It is able to be used with your iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad. It has an app that you can download for free to personalize and customize your massage experience while using this chair.
I, myself, have not joined the iPhone bandwagon so this doesn’t mean a whole to me except, does this mean that MY massage in this chair will not be as good since I don’t have an iPhone? However, if you do have an iPhone this app sounds pretty cool. You can use it to customize what massage auto programs you want it to perform and you also have access to lots of health advice and tips for utilizing your chair to the best of its abilities. Besides that, it will “save” the programs that you have done in your phone so that you can go back and see what program it was that you really enjoyed.
The AcuTouch 9500 has the same look and feel of the ever popular HT-1650 massage chair. This has been a top seller for us and gives the best lower leg and foot massage of any chair in the market. It has a very regal and classy look to the upholstery and can pass for a regular recliner.
Keep in mind that information on this chair has still been limited so take this blog post for what it’s worth!
Thanks, Steffanie. I like the idea of having info on the cell phone about the chair and the benefits of massage that I can access while I am sitting on the chair. I’m not sure, though, if the iPhone app is going to be that great of a deal for prospective buyers. Can the remote control be used just like with the other Human Touch massage chairs? I will be very curious to see how you, the shopper, respond to this chair when it hits the market in May. Any feedback would be appreciated from you. We will be carrying the chair if it will be available to us in May. We don’t even know what the price will be until closer to May. I’ll keep you posted.
