OHCO Named CES 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree

OHCO, developers of the world’s most luxurious and technologically advanced full-body shiatsu massage chairs, today announced that it had been named a CES® 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree. The new OHCO M.8 massage chair was on display at the CES 2019 OHCO booth #2031, located in South Hall 1 at the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 8-11, 2019.

Honed to perfection by a world-class designer, a Japanese shiatsu master, and a Boulder, Colorado-based software team, the M.8 is the intersection of timeless Eastern massage tradition, cultivated design, and Japanese engineering quality.

“We set out to create something stunning and feature-rich beyond compare. A transcendent experience that rejuvenates mind and body like no other massage chair, OHCO M.8 sets a new standard of excellence in the industry,” said Cliff Levin, OHCO founder, and CEO. “We’re honored to be recognized among the finest, most innovative solutions at CES, and above all, we’re proud to provide an effective, life-changing product that helps people find abiding wellbeing.”

Designed by Ken Okuyama, the M.8 integrates visual refinement and groundbreaking capabilities to create an unrivaled, transcendent massage experience. Inspired by Okuyama’s automotive roots with Porsche, Ferrari, and Maserati, the M.8’s rear-swinging doors offer a new level of convenience in massage chairs. “Getting in and out of a traditional massage chair can be a challenge for older users and anyone with back issues,” Levin explains. “The M.8 is the only massage chair on the market that has successfully addressed this issue.”

The CES Innovation Awards recognizes honorees across 28 product categories, an annual program that celebrates outstanding design. A panel of judges, including designers, engineers, and members of the tech media, reviews submissions based on design, functionality, consumer appeal, engineering, and how the products compare with the competition.

OHCO will be featured in the Fitness, Sports, and Biotech product category, which will be displayed in the Innovation Awards Showcase at the upcoming CES 2019. The complete list of CES 2019 Innovation Honorees, including product descriptions and photos, can be found at CES.tech/Innovation.
