OSIM launches the world’s first gaming massage chair – the uThrone. The uThrone incorporates OSIM’s time-tested health and wellness technologies housed within an ergonomically-designed chair, bringing to users greater comfort and relief when gaming or working at their desks.
The OSIM uThrone features homegrown mandopop singer JJ Lin as its ambassador, a synergistic collaboration given his efforts to grow the local e-sports scene. JJ Lin even lent his creative eye to the development of his own custom-designed chair in deep purple. 17 of these custom-designed chairs were given out to his closest friends such as fellow musician Jay Chou, NBA star Jeremy Lin and DJ Steve Aoki.
Research suggests that prolonged periods of poor sitting posture can take a serious toll on our bodies, leading to musculoskeletal aches and pains. This highlights the need for ergonomic products to relieve individuals of their aches and pains, ultimately enhancing their gaming and work performance.
The launch of the uThrone marks another milestone for OSIM as the brand continues to establish meaningful global collaborations, serve unmet needs, and expand their range of products that cater to the different lifestyles of a wide range of customer demographics.
Level up your game from a throne of comfort
Engineered to deliver effective and customised stress-relief, the uThrone features OSIM’s proprietary V-Hand massage technology that will target the specific aches and pains experienced by gamers and individuals that spend long periods of time at their desks. Emulating the skilful techniques of a masseuse’s hands, users will enjoy the realistic experience of a professional massage that specializes in extracting deep-seated knots on the neck and shoulders.
Boasting a streamlined design with double Bluetooth speakers embedded within its headrest, the uThrone brings users an immersive audio quality experience and empowers them to always bring their A-game.
Developed to withstand the high humidity in Singapore and long hours of use, the uThrone is clad in PVC leatherette that has been certified by BOKEN – Japan’s leading testing organisation for textile and lifestyle goods.
Each chair has also undergone rigorous stress tests to ensure maximum durability and comfort in every game, and is certified by Intertek Testing Services to ensure the highest standards of product integrity and performance. Complete with an adjustable backrest and lumbar support to fit any frame, the OSIM uThrone delivers gaming comfort for all users.
The uThrone is currently available for pre-order till January 2021 both online and across all OSIM stores, retailing at $899. Deliveries for pre-order will begin from end-January.
