More CES 2019 coverage, we transition from a $99 speaker to a $10K massage chair. The DreamWave M.8 looks like the Bentley of chairs and the price tag reflects this as well. The DreamWave M.8 is a full-body shiatsu massage chair which the company says is the first of a new, “highly-advanced and elegantly designed” line of next-generation massage chairs.
The company will debut the chair at CES 2019 and they say it has been “honed to perfection through the expertise of a world-class designer, precisely choreographed by Japanese shiatsu master and digitally scripted by
“Imagine a state of physical and mental wellbeing, where stress melts away and relaxation is absolute. The DreamWave M.8 creates a personalized, immersive, sensory massage environment that allows for disconnecting, recharging, and rejuvenating both body and mind,” said Cliff Levin,
DreamWave’sfounder andCEO. “The DreamWaveM.8 is unapologetically luxurious, feature-rich, and more technologically advanced than any other massage chair on the market. We are proud to offer the M.8 as the ultimate choice for achieving complete relaxation at home or in the office.”
The M.8 was designed by Ken Okuyama and inspired by his roots with Porsche, Ferrari, and Maserati. The M.8 incorporates rear-swinging doors to deliver a new level of convenience in massage chairs. “Getting in and out of a traditional massage chair can be a challenge for older users and anyone with back issues,” Levin explains. “The M.8 is the only massage chair on the market that has successfully addressed this issue.”
Features of the M.8 include:
- DeltaWaveTM massage engine provides robust
massagecapability and movements of knead, tap, pulse, and roll in a wide range of speeds, allowing simultaneous pneumatic and mechanical intensity adjustments that offers an accurate massage experience at any intensity setting.
- Choreographed to perfection and refined to feel human, theM.8 offers a wide variety of movements like “delta knead,” and “delta tap” which constantly changes the rate of movement to imitate the professional human hand massage experience. An ultra-slow tap creates a “pressing” sensation while a proprietary “breathe” sequence allows users to match their rate of respiration to the breathing movements of the M.8.
- MaxTrackTM seat and back massage track geometry conforms to the user’s body and offers independent adjustment of back, legs, and seat.
