TL; DR: As many of our readers know, jobs that involve spinning up virtual servers all day or writing endless lines of code can be a literal pain in the neck — not to mention the shoulders, back, and arms. NAIPO’s collection of self-care massagers leverage heat, compression, steam, kneading, electric pulse, and other advanced technologies to boost the physical and mental health of customers. Whether it’s providing a pandemic-safe alternative to in-person therapy or making adjustments based on customer feedback, NAIPO is on a mission to encourage well-being worldwide.
Whether you’re a developer, server technician, or security analyst, the life of an IT professional isn’t for the faint of heart. Hefty workloads, infrequent exercise, poor posture, and long days spent staring at screens are all too common.
They’re so common, in fact, that the resulting physical and mental symptoms have been given an official name: Silicon Valley Syndrome. The condition, also known as Computer Posture, encompasses various health problems, from chronic pain in the back, neck, and wrist to anxiety and insomnia.
In-person physical therapy and massage can help relieve these ailments, but self-care options offer a more convenient and affordable alternative, particularly while we’re in the throes of an ongoing pandemic. NAIPO, for example, provides comfortable, reliable, and wallet-friendly massage products that leverage modern technologies to support healthier lifestyles.
“Our customer surveys indicate that slouching at your desk, sitting for long periods, not exercising, and being overweight are all contributing factors to pain,” said a NAIPO brand representative. “Body pain is on the rise for those in office or computer-based professions, but since it’s a chronic and sometimes imperceptible health hazard, many workers only seek treatment when the pain gets really bad.”
NAIPO is on a mission to ease customer pain before it gets to that point via at-home (or in-office) massage devices designed for everyone — from server admins hunched over computers to athletes experiencing discomfort after bursts of physical activity.
With a wide range of mechanisms, including kneading, heat, percussion, rolling, shiatsu, and spot massage, NAIPO has a solution for nearly anyone looking for a little relief.
The Mission: To Encourage Well-Being Worldwide
NAIPO is dedicated to helping people of all ages and lifestyles improve their physical and mental health. “Our mission is to provide affordable, comfortable, and reliable massage products to deliver well-being and value to customers around the world,” a NAIPO brand representative told us.
Demand for health and wellness products has surged in recent years, with workplace wellness projected to reach $66 billion by 2022. To stand out among the competition, Naipo strives to create products that soothe the body, mind, and spirit without requiring too much time or money.
“When NAIPO first launched, the massager market was saturated with manufacturers, ranging from top brands to small startups,” a NAIPO brand representative said. “NAIPO tried to differentiate from them by optimizing the product according to customer feedback. We’ve reimagined traditional massager design, upgraded the technology, and controlled costs to deliver a better product at an affordable price.”
The company’s O Series, for example, features innovations like skin-friendly double-layered support, ergonomic design, and safety-oriented heat technology, all at affordable price points.
“Take the NAIPO oPillow Back Massager, for example,” a NAIPO brand representative said. “Before it was launched, the other pillow massagers on the market looked relatively similar, made of crude materials in conservative black colorways.”
NAIPO team members knew consumers wanted more — so when designing the oPillow, they aimed for a better product and better user experience.
“That’s why we designed it in an uncommon light grey, upgraded the materials to protect your skin, and came up with the idea to attach it to your chair to set your hands free,” a NAIPO brand representative said. “In this way, oPillow broke tradition, offering customers an exceptional massage experience. We know this because customers have fully embraced the product.”
Massage Solutions for the Whole Body
A NAIPO brand representative told us that NAIPO’s goal is to provide a catalog of products that, when combined, can soothe sore muscles from head to toe.
The company’s neck and shoulder massager, known as the oCuddle, uses directional rotation from four-node massaging heads designed to mimic the kneading and shiatsu techniques employed by real massage therapists.
To address the back pain that’s achingly familiar to the server technicians, developers, and web designers among us, NAIPO’s Shiatsu Back Massager offers heat, deep kneading, rolling, and vibration. Best yet, it can be attached to any office chair for on-the-job relaxation.
NAIPO’s Rechargeable Leg Compression Massager is an innovative option designed to empower users to enjoy cordless calf and foot massage at home, in the office, or on the go.
In March, NAIPO released its newest offering, a Kickstarter-backed smart steam massager and foot spa known as oFlexispa. “In addition to professionals who sit all day, we also care about the long-standing professions who are suffering from foot pain, and that’s why we offer foot pain solutions, such as oFlexiSpa,” a NAIPO brand representative said.
Whereas traditional foot spas require lengthy warm-up time and messy buckets of water, oFlexiSpa users need less than a cup of water and just 30 seconds to get started.
“oFlexiSpa reinvents the foot spa experience, making it faster, easier and less messy,” NAIPO CEO Ivan Lau stated in a recent press release. “Because of that, people can make it part of their daily routine and enjoy more benefits of regular foot care for better health, comfort, and happiness.”
A Safe Alternative to In-Person Therapy
NAIPO’s massage products seem almost tailor-made for these unprecedented times, facilitating social distancing, reducing stress, and serving as the ideal job perk when working from home. Amid economic instability, they also offer a cost-effective alternative to more pricey solutions.
“Our products are not only affordable, but they help users avoid expensive professional physiotherapy sessions and other costs related to physical pain,” a NAIPO brand representative said. “For example, if a person suffers from serious physical pain all the time, his or her income may decrease due to low efficiency.”
Citing the adage time is money, a NAIPO brand representative said NAIPO offers customers additional savings in that they’re able to multitask with a massage anytime and anywhere. IT experts, for example, don’t have to take time off for a professional massage. Instead, they can attach NAIPO’s Shiatsu Back Massager to their chair, get a massage and spin up servers at the same time.
When it comes to internal development, the NAIPO team pays careful attention to both global trends and customer feedback.
“We collect real user feedback regularly to understand the drawbacks of our product as well as new functions our users would like to see,” a NAIPO brand representative said. “We all know that the products without improvement are destined to be eliminated by the market. Our product development team is always willing to alter product design based on market research or customer feedback.”
NAIPO’s leadership is incredibly proud of the company’s strong work ethic.
“Although the workload is heavy, every member of our team always tries to achieve the best result of every task, no matter how long it will take and how much effort needs to be put in,” she said. “There are many strong competitors in the market, so making the brand outstanding is challenging.”
In addition to constantly conducting market research and soliciting customer feedback to inform product updates, the NAIPO team is hard at work transforming its brand from an ecommerce website to a complete online experience.
“We want our official platform to serve not only as a place to sell products but also a place where our customers feel cared for and happy,” a NAIPO brand representative said. “We care about the customer experience, not just selling the product.”
