The only reason I don’t have a masseuse any longer is because I thoroughly enjoy the massages that one can get on the massage chair. As good as the human touch (though nothing can beat the good old hands) the chairs provide a completely relaxing experience. The latest entrant in the massage chair market is the Zero Gravity model from Sanyo. What makes this chair unique is the Stiffness Detection Sensor technology that diagnoses the stress areas of the body by measuring the changes in pulse rate and perspiration of the user. Sanyo says that this concept was borrowed from the technology used in lie detectors. Now that’s one unique source of inspiration I’ve come across!
