Human Touch Optimizes Their Perfect Chair Recliner for Therapeutic Relief in Any Seating Position

Long Beach, CA– September 25, 2017 – Human Touch, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs, Perfect Chair Recliners, and other wellness solutions, has introduced the Perfect Chair PC-LiVE recliner to their Perfect Chair collection. Inspired by NASA, Human Touch Perfect Chair recliners place the body into the doctor-recommended, neutral-gravity position, with the feet above the heart. This position eliminates pain and stress from the neck and vertebrae, which is caused by earth’s gravitational pull on the body. This improves relaxation, reduces stress and provides better sleep quality, among other important benefits.

Using data from Perfect Chair owner surveys, the engineers at Human Touch found that, while seated, people spend the majority of their time in positions other than zero-gravity, to perform activities such as reading or watching television. Sitting in these positions for extended periods of time places physical stress on the glutes and the sciatic nerve

With the new PC-LiVE, Human Touch has optimized the Perfect Chair recliner to evenly distribute body weight over the entire seating surface, no matter what the seating position. This is achieved using advanced 3D EasePoint™ Technology, which utilizes a proprietary and patented fluid-cell, hermetically sealed cushion. EasePoint Technology uses three separate layers of both high and low viscosity suspension oil to displace pressure in three dimensions across the entire seating surface, thus eliminating harmful pressure points. The fluid-cell cushion is encompassed by Memory Foam PLUS, a luxurious and high-density seating material which supports and contours the entire body.

“When seated in the upright position on most seating surfaces, pressure points in the glutes cause subtle pain. Think of sitting on a hard stadium seat, or wood lecture hall seating,” says Dr. John K. Maltby, Doctor of Chiropractic and Human Touch Wellness Council member. “The ischial bones eventually begin to amplify that pain, and the lower back responds to this by tensing up. PC LiVE reduces that stress by evenly distributing weight and minimizing the pressure on the pelvis and surrounding musculature.”

Like all recliners in the Perfect Chair collection, PC-LiVE blends contemporary architecture with old-world craftsmanship, giving it a bold yet classic look. Each base is crafted from hand-carved and hand-finished solid wood, made from the Hevea Brasiliensis (rubber tree), which yields one of the strongest woods on earth. The premium leather upholstery is sourced from a select 5% of the world’s most high-quality, uncorrected cowhide. The high-tensile strength steel glide rails are also sandblasted, cleaned, and powder-coated with a protective surface for long-term durability and a smooth, quiet glide in order to offer the highest possible level of quality. Each PC-LiVE recliner also offers far-infrared Jade Stone heat to soothe and calm the muscles, as well as all of the quality features that customers have come to expect from the Perfect Chair collection, including:

* Independent leg and back adjustability
* 5-way omni-motion controller
* Adjustable lumbar support
* Premium leather
* Hand-carved solid wood base

PC-LiVE is available in Black, Espresso and Gray upholstery color options, and Matte Black, Dark Walnut and Walnut wood base finish options.
