Neck and shoulder massager

Development of a neck and shoulder massager on behalf of OBH Nordica Sweden AB. I performed the work as my degree project in Innovation & design at KTH.

The design is inspired by the backpack to bring an element of recognition to the product. This makes it easier for the user to know how to use it. When in use, the product is places around the neck, under the arms and across the back. Alternatively, it can be folded so even the lower part is placed around the neck. The design of the product thus offers two different modes for different needs and preferences. The materials used are memory foam, durable textiles and nylon straps. The massage unit's technical solution includes a closed hydraulic pump system with integrated heating system where liquid cells are filled and emptied for effective and relaxing massage.
