It is maybe silly to say this, but you need a replacement for a therapist. You need something that will target the pressure points.

Still, the adaption of the chair went to another level. The new technology allowed users to measure their vital stats such as blood pressure and oxygen level. Thanks to these facts, you can adapt the chair in the best possible way.

Despite that, the modern chairs come with a tablet. You can use this item in two different ways – as a stand-alone table and remote. The users can play their favorite tunes while enjoying the massage.

Finally, AI innovation comes with a memory feature. For example, you had the last massage a couple of days ago. Logically, you adapted it to a certain way. Well, the chair can save all the features and programs that you picked at that time. In most cases, the modern massage chairs come with 5 to 10 memory slots. This is enough to save all your favorite features.
