The Amazing Bed was invented by Innovative Standards of Lenexa, Kansas. This is a massage bed, compared to the kind of mechanical massage experienced in a massage chair. Most massage functions for beds are vibration massages, using pulse generators. The operation of a mechanical massage is more like the hand massage. It is comparable to using the massage jack of intertwined V-shaped steel rods with balls at the ends. Innovative Standards is now using the trade name Vitality Massage Bed for these beds to reflect the benefits of their use.
In the Amazing Bed, upright rods holding the massager heads ride on a rail in the foundation. The head travels back-and-forth just under the memory foam mattress, kneading the sleeper's body all the way. The extent of coverage and the pressure can be selected by the users to suit their individual preferences or immediate needs.
Innovative Standards makes and sells three categories of the Amazing Bed: Residential Models, Spa and Chiropractic Models, and Hospitality Models. The Residential Beds look like what you expect to see in a bedroom. The Hospitality Beds look like what you expect to find in a hotel room. Spa and Chiropractic Beds look like massage or treatment tables, appropriate for their intended use.
The current Amazing Bed professional model MOD-120 Vitalty Bed, is used by several collegiate and professional sports organizations (including three NFL teams, St. Louis Rams, Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals) in their training rooms. MOD stands for Massage On Demand. When needed, a team member can have a deep massage with the trainer controlling or monitoring the process.
These Vitality Massage Beds are also used by several chiropractors and spas. The massage assists in readjustment of joints; chiropractic adjustment is more easily and effectively done when the patient's muscles are relaxed. Chiropractors can also refer their patients to the residential Vitality Massage Beds for daily use at home.
The Amazing/Vitality Massage Bed also finds use in fitness centers and health clubs. The massages are used in conjuction with exercise, a therapeutic prescription for office workers.
Since they were first introduced to the public, the Amazing Bed has experienced innovations. These include a selection of massage heads and updated and upgraded controls.
When buying a Vitality Massage Bed, the customer can select the size of massage head. three heads are currently available. According to Innovative Standards, they are working on a fourth. These are suitable for different body sizes, and for a residential bed, two partners are more often markedly different in size. It seems natural that a MOD-120 for a football team would be suitable for larger persons. I do not know if the choice of heads applies to the Spa/Chiropractic models, but patrons and patients do vary in size.
Vitality Massage Beds for professionals have several options for the controls. The first option was between wired and wireless handheld remotes. Now the options include a touchscreen control unit mounted on a pedestal and a wireless tablet. Unlike push-button remotes, the software in the newer controls can be updated to include new features, functions and massage programs.
Understandably, the memory foam mattress on the top of an Amazing Bed takes a beating of sorts. Fortunately for the owners of these massage beds. the mattress part can be rotated and flipped to minimize wear. It can also be replaced without having to replace the entire bed.
The program options for the Amazing Bed Spa and Chiropractic models include rolling, tapping, and kneading actions. Innovative Standards calls this The Next Generation of Massage. It "adapts to different body types," has an "intuitive user control system, and sets up in minutes."
The Vitality Massage Bed (Amazing bed) is made in he U.S.A. from North American materials and components. It can be ordered by phone or email directly from Innovative Standards, online through Massage Chair Relief, or through any Amazing Bed retailers.
