The company made the world’s first automatic massage chairs in 1962 and has been at the forefront of the industry ever since, offering everything from voice activation to medically approved treatment. New in 2009 and earning 2010 CES design awards at an international media preview are a pair of chairs: the $5,799 Doctor’s Choice, a chiropractor’s vision of a massage chair; and the $799 CUBE, which massages everything from your lower back all the way down to your feet and folds into an ottoman when not in use.
