Nichimu Inada, Founder of Family Inada

Inada invented the world's first automatic massage chair. Over the next 50 years, Inada went on to pioneer virtually every major massage innovation introduced to the market, including the first spinal roller, the first use of air cells for massage, and the first infrared pressure point detection system. In 2008, they released the award-winning Sogno, a revolutionary massage chair that continues to be a best-seller and features the most advanced and comprehensive air cell and roller massage on the planet.  Whilst minor modifications have been made to this massage chair over the past few years, you simply cannot improve on perfection and to date, no other massage chair has been made to surpass the capabilities of the Inada Sogno DreamWave Massage Chair.

Passionate about Health


Dr. Hideyo Matsuura of the Inada Product Development Team


Inada is the only massage chair company whose product development is 100% led by professional Shiatsu therapists. Each massage begins with an automatic Shiatsu point detection scan (another Inada invention) and has been choreographed to intelligently massage the right parts of your body with just the right touch. Inada collaborates with 7 universities and 10 medical clinics to conceive and test new ideas for making a positive impact on your health.

Inada is famous for its quality. Each new chair model is rigorously tested for the equivalent of 20 years of regular use before it is released.

In total, Inada employs over 100 full-time engineers and massage experts to design and manufacture Japan's most effective medical-grade massage devices. In 2008, Inada's extraordinary engineering team was approached by Toyota, famous for its state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and world class quality, to design massage functionality for their new minivan.

INADA Massage Chair
The INADA Chair is sold as a "Medical Massage Chair" in Japan. It was approved by the Japanese government in 1998 for use in non-clinical massage & acupressure therapy and is marketed for home-therapeutic medical purposes in Japan.

The INADA Massage Chair is the synergy of Eastern medical wisdom and modern technology.

The ultimate goal of massage is to enhance the body's natural healing ability by releasing stress and promoting circulation. According to Eastern medicine, the key to good health is maintaining a balance between the yin and yang elements in the body, including the relationships between the upper and lower body, left and right, and front and back. The body has more than 350 pressure points aligned with the internal organs along the meridians. Stimulation of specific pressure points through kneading, tapping or pressing can energise the internal organs, helping in some cases to slow or possibly prevent the onset of disease. The INADA Massage Chair is the only massage chair that relies on the techniques and knowledge of professional massage and shiatsu therapists.

Mr Nichimu Inada's philosophy is to see massage chairs developed to the highest technology and the greatest benefit to people's health and well being. Mr Inada's hopes are for every home worldwide to have an Inada massage chair.
