What's the best method of relaxation after a hard day at work? Well, I could give you quite a few examples, but instead I'll just stick to one of my favorites, massage, and a device that's capable of providing you with (almost) the same relaxing experience as a masseuse, namely the HEC-SA5000K Massage Chair from Sanyo.
And the manufacturers don't call it "ultimate" for nothing. Thus, the HEC-SA5000K includes a very special technology developed by the company, namely the stiffness detection and physical shape sensors that - by measuring the body temperature, perspiration, and pulse rate during a short evaluation period - are capable of providing a unique and personalized
massage. Moreover, the effects are very similar to those produced by the crafty hands of a specialist due to the embedded GK Rollers that "grasp and knead" the user's back from neck to tailbone in order to emulate a live massage.
Another feature that makes this chair so very interesting is the fact that the HEC-SA5000K sports 12 combination courses, including grip, shiatsu, massage, tapping and multiple stretches. The chair also sports a very interesting control system, placed well within the user's reach, and has a design that kind of reminds me of the command chair from the starship Enterprise.
Here are some of the most important technical and commercial features and specs this very interesting and useful device has to offer:
- dimensions: 73.02 cm x 1200 cm x 1.241 cm;
- maximum sustainable user weight: 120 kilograms;
- features: 5 massage speed settings;
- sports: 5 width settings to accommodate the user's personal size;
- includes: control panel with large multi-color display;
- offers: 4 memory courses for storing the personal massage preferences;
- offers: 4 full-body automatic courses to address individual massage needs.
The HEC-SA5000K Massage Chair from Sanyo really is a piece of work, but, as we all know only very well by now, great things do come at a pretty hefty price, which in this case is of around 4.300 US dollars.We are just a few, but there are many of you, Softpedia users, out there.
