In Las Vegas, the big annual technology fair takes care of your health
The medical massage chair
For those who complain of neck or back pain, the South Korean company Bodyfriend sells a massage chair for $9.500 that focuses on the back of the neck, with the head held in place by a headband.
The machine also diffuses heat in the back and emits pulsed electromagnetic waves supposed to reduce muscle pain. With the feet and calves also surrounded, the body is enveloped by the chair, which tilts.
“Our technology helps solve the problems created by technology,” notes Changjoo Kim, the company's North America manager: spending time on your phone and other screens can create back problems.
