A Massage Better Than Human Hands
Mechanical and AI Technology Comes Together to Provide An Additional Joints to Better Replicate In-Person Massage
The ultimate goal of a massage chair is to catch up with and surpass professional human massage techniques. In order to realize this, Inada studied the techniques of massage therapists during the early stages of development and continued to research the movement of human hands so that they could develop a mechanism that offers first and second joints just like fingers have. Next up was perfecting the rhythm of movement.
When a professional masseuse attends to your muscles, they vary their rhythm based on muscle stiffness and personal preference. When a massage therapist is at work they’re actively changing the pressure used, speed, and direction of their hands. Using adaptable, rhythmic movements to match the massage technique to the issue being addressed. The internal mechanisms and software in this massage chair can master and reproduce subtle movements just like a professional massage practitioner can.
The Essence of Comfort with an AI Hybrid Mechanism
Robo’s AI detects muscle stiffness and adjusts its massage according to your physical needs.
At any given time during your massage, the artificial intelligence mechanism adjusts its massage to the best strength and speed for your needs. It will adjust based on the condition of your muscles, your unique size and shape, and how stiff you are. Even the speed adjusted as it takes in data regarding the load received by the rollers during a massage. This way, it can attend to stiff areas with slow, precise movements and relaxed areas with increased speed for better circulation.
