Human Touch HT1650 Adex Award

Our massage chairs incorporate original designs and unique functionalities that promote everyday wellness and we are proud that yet again our products have received an acclaimed award for this accomplishment.

Human Touch®, the U.S. market leader of innovative lifestyle and massage products, announced today that two of its revolutionary massage chairs have been honored by Design Journal's 2009 Award For Design Excellence (ADEX) competition. The Human Touch AcuTouch™ HT-1650 massage chair received the highest honor of Platinum for its seamless integration of elegant style and comprehensive patented Human Touch Technology®, approved and recommended by the World Federation of Chiropractic. The AcuTouch™ HT-7450 Zero-Gravity massage chair, also integrating Human Touch Technology®, received the Silver Award for its ability to relieve soreness, tension and fatigue caused by gravity, while blending into any décor and home or office environment.

Both massage chairs offer Human Touch's patented Acupoint® Detection System, which scans the entire length of the user's back for key pressure points and accurately targets them during an invigorating and therapeutic massage. In addition, both chairs offer Massage Comfort Control, which allows full control over the intensity of the massage. Eight full-body pre-programmed wellness massages range from "full body sore muscle relief" to "after work stretch." The user is able to customize each massage to include the neck, back, seat, foot and calf, and dual lumbar heat, and the ergonomically designed neck-contoured comfort pillow and memory foam seat cushion ensures ultimate personalized comfort. Both chairs come in Black or Dark Chocolate, the HT-1650 with premium leather / leather-match upholstery, and the HT-7450 with Standard leather / leather-match upholstery. Both massage chairs are suitable for any style of home or décor.

The ADEX Awards program is in its 15th year running and has become one of the largest and most prestigious awards programs for product design of furniture, fixtures and finishes. Winners are selected by a panel of judges that is comprised of professionals representing a cross-section of the design industry. Judges award points to each entry based on innovation and overall design, with the total points earned determining each product's final score.

"We are pleased to have two of our most popular and design-driven massage chairs win such esteemed accolades," says Andrew Corkill, director of marketing of Human Touch. "Our massage chairs incorporate original designs and unique functionalities that promote everyday wellness and we are proud that yet again our products have received an acclaimed award for this accomplishment."
