Part of Inada’s sterling reputation comes from innovative Japanese design. Japan is recognized as the industry leader in massage chair development, and because massage chairs are such a large and competitive business in Japan, buying a Japanese brand means you get the most cutting-edge technology and features available.
The Japanese aren’t just pioneers in technological research, over 20 percent of Japanese homes have a robotic massage chair, so these items are quite popular and necessary features in Japanese households, with numbers comparable to Blu-Ray ownership in the United States.
So what’s the difference between Japanese and domestically-made massage chairs? Simply put, domestic chairs are knock-offs—they are lesser machines copying last year’s technology, without adding much research or development of their own. These products are far behind the current trends, so while these chairs may be more affordable, they simply aren’t as advanced.
For years Inada has been, and continues to be, the worldwide leader in the luxury massage chair market. Inada has won five Consumer Electronics Show awards, as well as design and performance honors. Both overseas and domestically, Inada is one of the most sought-after and best-selling massage chairs available.
There are other good chairs out there, and certainly there are cheaper, but if you want the highest quality, and the best features for your dollar, you can’t go wrong with Inada.
