Key features include AcuPoint® detection (scans the entire length of the back mapping key pressure points to target during your customized massage); Massage Comfort Control (customizes the massage intensity and can also be used in non-massage mode to create a more comfortable and relaxing seating experience); Air-Pulse seat system; Dual-Lumbar heat (two lumbar heat modules gently warm the lower back muscles, gradually reducing tightness and pain); retractable foot & calf massager (massages the calves in an upward, rolling or wave-like fashion, forcing blood away from the feet and toward the core of the body to allow fresh nutrient-rich blood to re-enter the calves and feet for greater healing and soothing comfort); and Premium Leather upholstery.
