Humans find back massage to be the most relaxing experience. Massages are used for rejuvenation and refreshing experiences in regular life. But providing a back massage is a very tiring process for the massage provider and usually massages last for 5 – 15 minutes leaving the customer unsatisfied with massager. Also massages cost a lot due to high human effort involved.
So here we propose a semi automated full back massager that uses a motorized mechanism to provide a human like back massage from shoulders to lower back. The system provides following advantages:
- It provides a human like massage with adjustable pressure.
- The massage roller uses spring arrangement to adjust as per your body shape.
- The system can work continuously for hours for long massages.
- It requires no human effort once started.
- It consumes low power and can provide massages for a fraction of the cost.
The system makes use of a linear actuator to provide the massage linear movement across the back. The actuator moves the massage rollers which are connected through spring damper to the actuator. The motorized system moves the screw which in turn moves the actuator and massages rollers providing linear massage over the back.
This entire arrangement is now mounted over two cylindrical rods to provide a horizontal movement in order to manually shift massage path to side of the back. These rods are then connected with belts to mount onto user and also to adjust pressure by tightening them. This allows covering the entire back for massage using a semi automatic massage system.
Thus we automate back massaging using this innovative massage assembly system.
