In 1954, the world first mass-produced massage chair was developed by FUJI.
FUJI was founded in 1954. Late Nobuo Fujimoto who was the founder and opened "Fuji Workshop" in Hannamancho, Abeno-ku, Osaka City and this was the beginning. At that time, many Japanese people had gone to public baths in the town.
Fujimoto who was selling scrub brush to wash tiles in public baths thought whether he could do something in the dressing room where people gather and relax for healing the fatigue of the day and he started to develop massage chair.
Early prototypes were made from "mountain of garbage". After trying to assemble from the materials such as woods, baseball softballs, bicycle chains, car handlles many times, the world first mass-produced massage chair "the first machine, FUJI Automatic Massage Machine" was finally completed in 1954.
Only a "knead" massage function was equipped and it is a simple mechanism in which the massage balls move up and down by turning the handle that is placed on the side. It broke down the traditonal idea of "tapping, kneading by human hands or tools" and became revolutionary product like "the machine massage by just sitting on the chair."
Massage chairs have become popular from public baths, hot-spring inn to home and the world to keep supporting people's health.
The first machine is the origin of massage chair.
