BAIE D'URFE, Quebec – Human Touch, a resource for robotic massage chairs, zero-gravity chairs and other wellness products, has signed an agreement with Erikson Consumer, a consumer electronics supplier based in this suburb of Montreal, to serve as the company’s primary distributor in Canada.
In a statement, the Long Beach, California-based company said the agreement will expand its presence in the Canadian market. Until recently, the line has been distributed by the Vaughn, Ontario-based Better Distribution.

Both of these products have exclusive endorsements by the World Federation of Chiropractic as a valid supplement to back care therapies.
They have also been recognized with multiple Design Journal Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) for their design form and function.
