A Chair With The Human Touch

Albert Maruggi - Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Furniture is a place where technology, style and wellness are coming together.   This was clear to see at the Human Touch showroom at High Point Market Fall 2014.  Human Touch is a manufacturer of award-winning massage chairs and relaxation furniture.  Their product line is sold in a variety of places, from homes to hotels, from sports facilities to spas.  Even further, clinics, especially chiropractic offices purchase Human Touch furniture as a way to relax their patients prior to an adjustment session.   

Human Touch chairs are designed to massage the body using a variety of patented mechanisms that work like wrists and hands.  The technology employs the key massage techniques of rolling, kneading, compression, and percussion.  Human Touch created a panel of wellness experts, called the Wellness Council, comprised of physicians, professional athletes and wellness practitioners.  The Wellness Council works with Human Touch product engineers on new ways to provide healing and recuperative programs to their product line.  For example, some models of Human Touch chairs have preset programs targeting areas of regular pain experienced by golfers. Human Touch President Andrew Cohen explains how the Wellness Council is impacting the design and effectiveness of Human Touch seating in the video below.  




Honoring the US MIlitary


Human Touch and Orion Air Ride share a respect for and commitment to US service men and women.   Human Touch gives active, reserved and retired veterans 10% off selected models of their massage chairs and complimentary shipping.   Orion Air Ride annually raises funds for US troops stationed in conflict areas through the website AnySoldier and seeks to hire veterans whenever possible.
