Massage Chair Comparison: Human Touch Super Novo vs Daiwa Supreme Hybrid

The Human Touch Super Novo massage chair comes equipped with both 3D and 4D massage programs, and gives you the option for the innovative Virtual Therapist.

Both massage chairs are ideal for a seasoned consumer who insists on quality, but you should take some time to familiarize yourself with the features of both massage chairs before you make your purchase. Here’s a head-to-head comparison.

Top Features of the Human Touch Super Novo Massage Chair

Virtual Therapist

To make the Virtual Therapist and Alexa work, you would need to request the Virtual Therapist Bridge which is free of charge. You would also need to have or purchase an Amazon Echo, Google Home or similar device for Alexa to work with the Super Novo.

The proprietary Virtual Therapist feature is a lot like having your very own massage therapist on call. The virtual therapist will begin by asking you some questions, and then it will provide you with a targeted massage in your trouble areas. It will also store your preferences and make automatic suggestions as you begin each therapy session.

3D and 4D Massage

The 4D massage technology can actually simulate the feel of real human hands. You can also utilize traditional 3D massage settings for a more conventional massage experience.

SL-Track Massage

The Human Touch Super Novo’s SL-track is ergonomically engineered to your spine’s natural curvature. Unlike a straight track, the SL-track will apply seamless pressure from your shoulders to your thighs.

Extending Leg Massager

The Super Novo from Human Touch features heated foot, calf, and knee areas in its extendable leg rest.
