Panasonic taps robotic engineering for new body massage chair


A massage chair that helps relax the body from the foot to the neck will be launched in Japan from August 1. The new Panasonic massage chair, priced at approximately 500,000 yen (Bt141,000), comes with a user-friendly, touch-type operation panel. 



The company said the easy-to-see screen and easy-to-understand operation would make it possible for people of all age groups to operate the massage chair without stress.
The chair comes with airbags for the back of the upper arm, one each on the left and right for the massage of both upper hands. The massage chair offers a new feature: users can select their favourite massage from the touch screen. Massage progress is displayed in real time.
The company said robotic engineering has enabled internal massage heads to provide a total range of massaging motions to replicate the dexterity of the human hand for a more natural, relaxing and effective massage experience.
