OSIM International received its first CES Innovation Award at the annual award’s 2022 edition for its Smart DIY Massage Chair in the Smart Home category.
The Smart DIY Massage Chair was first launched in April 2021, and has been met with a highly positive response globally. As a rising number of individuals look for accessible, flexible, and effective products to care for their health and well-being amidst pandemic safety measures and work from home arrangements, the Smart DIY Massage Chair is seen to be an effective and affordable solution amidst these challenging times.
Organised by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the distinguished CES Innovation Awards is an annual international competition honouring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products from around the world.
This year’s awards received a record high number of over 1,800 submissions across 27 categories. Winners were selected by a judging panel comprised of a diverse mix of industry experts from across
the globe, including designers, engineers, and members of the media. Submissions were reviewed and judged based on each entry’s level of innovation, engineering and functionality, as well as aesthetics and design. CES showcases companies including manufacturers, developers and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems and more.
“We are very proud to be a CES 2022 Innovation Awards Honouree for the Smart DIY Massage Chair. To receive this international award amongst our distinguished global peers validates the efforts of our team to continuously explore the boundaries of innovation in health and well-being,” Ms Lynn Tan, Deputy CEO of OSIM International.
“With this particular product, we looked to realise the benefits of Internet of Things (IoT) technology to deliver more intuitive, responsive, and impactful products. Not only have we been able to achieve that with the Smart DIY Massage Chair, but we have also been able to heighten accessibility to well-being devices for more individuals, as users can now gain a holistic stress-relieving experience by simply syncing two separate devices into one seamless fullbody experience.”
As we continue building on OSIM’s core mission to deliver holistic and meaningful well-being experiences for a diverse range of users, constant innovation in design and technology forms a critical component of our ongoing commitment to support users in their unique wellbeing journeys.”
The Smart DIY Massage Chair comes to life through OSIM’s proprietary mobile app, which enables users to customise their full-body massage experience.
Recognised by CES for outstanding technological innovation, the OSIM Smart DIY Massage Chair is an IoT device that caters perfectly to the new norm of hybrid work arrangements and the doubling up of spaces. It delivers flexibility, customisation and performance at home, in the office, or any other space in which users choose to take their devices along for a quick pick-me-up.
It delivers a harmoniously integrated and customisable full-body massage experience through the combination of two powerful standalone devices – the uJolly 2 Smart back massager and uSqueez 2 Smart leg massager. The accompanying proprietary OSIM Smart DIY Massage Chair app allows users to synchronise the devices’ functions to create a fully integrated massage chair experience.
The app syncs both devices and features up to 24 unique combinations of full-body massage programmes that combine both back and leg massagers, or a mix-and-match of both devices’ programmes. Both devices are equipped with OSIM’s advanced massage technology, with Enhanced Dual-Action V-Grip Technology and realistic reflexology massage techniques to target and soothe tense muscles.
As more individuals look for intelligent and effective wellness solutions that can be used from the comfort of their own homes, it is evident that the application of frontier technologies to deliver flexible, intuitive, and effective products to alleviate modern day stressors is fast becoming an industry standard.
Through innovative products that address these rising levels of stress such as the Smart DIY Massage chair and the uDream, OSIM has achieved much international success in the fields of innovation, technology and design.
Accruing various international accolades in the past year for excellence in product design, OSIM received its sixth Red Dot Design Award in March as well as the Design for Asia Award in August, both of which recognised OSIM for its outstanding design of the world’s first well-being chair – the uDream. In July 2021, OSIM was also one of six companies to receive Deloitte’s Best Managed Companies award.
