Family Inada, maker of what is said to be the world's first shiatsu massage chair in Japan, is now offering a new product—a full-body massage chair that reportedly adapts itself to the shape of the user’s body with state-of-the-art infrared technology. The Inada Chair D.1, currently sold only in Japan, will reportedly be available in the U.S. for the first time this September. According to the company, the Inada Chair is the only massage chair that uses infrared technology to scan the user's body. The infrared scan measures height and detects pressure points, offering a customized massage. Features of the D.1 model include whole-foot shiatsu, which uses air cushions above and below the foot and around the ankle to apply pressure and massage the foot; triple-action arm massage; and full-contact recline, which reportedly keeps track of the user’s main shiatsu points in any position to ensure that every part of the body remains in contact with the chair, regardless of body type.
