Human Touch Meets the iPhone

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

It’s really only a matter of time before iPhones can control everything in the world.  Like the impending robopocalypse from the movie “Terminator”, our iPhones will soon take us over and make us get them movie times, play their music and update their Facebook statuses.  Until then, you can now add another thing to the list of iPhone’s many features: giving a massage.

Manufacturer, Human Touch’s new chair, the AcuTouch 9500 is controlled through the HT-Connect iOS application.  This is a free application that lets users customize their experience by choosing from 8 pre-programmed massages (with the option of saving up to 16), as well as health and fitness tips.

The chair itself is incredibly comfortable.  Made of smooth leather, once you sit down, it’s like receiving a cool hug from a small, soft cloud.  Even if you don’t own an iPhone it can work with the iPad or iPod Touch.  If you’ve somehow avoided the Apple madness and don’t own any of the above three, the chair can be operated solely with its customizable corded controller.  After a long day of work, why not treat yourself to a chair that will ease you both mentally and physically?  Just do it before the iPhones get wise…

Web Sales Favorite Products

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

I thought I would take a poll of the internet sales team, working this morning, to find out what their favorite Abt.com product is right now. Everyone had very different responses. If you want to put a face with a name, check out the web sales page on Abt.com.

Starting with Conrad S., his favorite item is a “GE Profile (Champagne) High-Efficiency Washer – WPGT9150HMG top loading washing machine with the capacity and energy efficiency of a front load at a lesser price. I like it so much I actually do laundry to help my wife out. It works great.”

Steve P. loves the selection of Oakley Sunglasses. “They are great in the bright sun when I play golf.”

Kevin R. loves his Python Remote Car Starter from Viper. “It definitely helps during those cold nights where I’m the last to leave in the department. Plus, it makes me feel ‘Willis Tower’.”

Brian E. likes the Playstation 3 because he can watch his extensive collection of blu-rays and play video games too.

Megan M. loves the Definitive Technology Pro Cinema 600 Series Speakers. She enjoys the superb audio quality at such a reasonable price.

Victor R.’s favorite product is the Pioneer Flagship In-Dash A/V Receiver with DVD playback. It interfaces with an iPod and has a navigation unit all-in-one. He likes it because it does so much and doesn’t clutter up his car.

Tim S. uses Bang and Olufsen A8 series headphones. “These are the best sounding in ear headphones that actually stay in my ears when I’m doing things that are active (skiing, sledding, chasing my dog around, etc.).”

Isaac B. doesn’t like watching commercials when he’s finished with a long day at work. The Hi-Def Tivo eliminates commercials and he can watch his favorite TV Shows, like True Blood and The Office, after work.

Mark S. finishes the day with the Human Touch Compact Acuvibe Handheld Massager. He comes home, eats a late dinner and massages the day away.

Carl C. won’t make coffee unless he gets filtered water from his fridge. The Whirlpool filter makes his coffee taste great.

Rafael P. listens to his XM Satellite Radio on the way to work everyday. “It’s commercial free and has a huge variety of music options.”

Blake B. relaxes listening to his Boston Acoustics Duo-i Plus Black iPod Speaker System. “The quality and value are amazing for such a low price.”

Carl P. and David S. make dinner with their Weber Genesis Grills. “It’s a great way to cook steaks in the summer or winter.”

What are your favorite appliances or electronics? Let me know!

All Your Cares Will Disappear

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

Here we are in the middle of the chaotic holiday shopping season. What seems to be a never ending hunt for the best gifts and battling frigid temperatures is running you ragged. This is the perfect time to take a minute for you, and relax.

At Abt, we carry a line of relaxing products that just might do the trick. We have a variety of massage chairs that will soothe all of your hassles away. Along with the mental health benefits to enjoying a session in a massage chair, there are health benefits too.

According to Human Touch, a manufacturer of massage chairs, the health benefits include lowering blood pressure, reduction in heart rate, improved circulation, boosting the immune system, improving skin health and nutrition, reduction in scar tissue, and improved lymph flow.

I think we could all use some relaxation right now, stop in and see our line of Human Touch massage chairs.
