Korea’s Hutech Industry to showcase in-vehicle massaging chair at CES

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 30 Dec 2021


South Korea’s Hutech Industry, a healthcare company, is targeting the mobility market using technology of the ‘sonic vibration massage system’ installed in its massage chair that will be showcased at CES 2022.

One of the company’s core technologies, the ‘Sonic Wave Massage System’ is Hutech's massage technology that applies a sonic vibration magnetic circuit to a massage system. The technology was started by a strategic cooperation with Evosonics, a professional sonic vibration health care group.

Hutech says it will introduce various solutions including sonic wave car seat.

The sonic wave car seat exterior is inspired by the ‘sonic wave on massage system’ in the hope that the customer's moving space becomes a complete resting space beyond merely a means of transportation and actualised the soft and organic waveform of sonic vibrations. In addition, the finely segmented ergonomic design provides a comfortable seating experience with adjustable seat positions such as forward/backward, up/down, headrest, and leg support to suit the user's body.

A sonic wave massage system is installed on the car seat, especially for the back, and the frequency (Hz) optimised for massage delivers sonic wave to the depths of the muscles through six different sonic vibration massage modules, providing an advanced level of massage comfort.

The key to mobility massage through sonic wave, rather than the conventional tapping massage module method, is safety. The ‘sonic wave massage system’ is said to deliver deep massage to muscles just by touching the skin, providing the best massage solution in a mobility environment where safety is a top priority.

In addition, it provides a higher level of relaxation through ‘Music Sync Massage Technology,’ which combines sonic wave massage and music. Music sync massage technology is Hutech's new concept where music becomes part of a massage, not just passively listening to music.

Previously, Hutech showed the potential for market expansion of the massage chair industry by applying a foot massager that combines professional massage technology to a vehicle for the first time in Korea.

In the case of automotive devices, development is difficult in that industry because of having to meet the strict safety standards. The industry is experiencing many difficulties in development, so in response, Hutech has been conducting joint research with Kia for over 3 years and succeeded in applying a complete foot massager to the Kia Carnival High Limousine 4-seater.

Founded in 2007, Hutech was awarded 'Innovation award of CES 2022' and topped 'Korea customer satisfaction index' in 2021, for its technology.
