In the 1960s while the space race was in full swing both the Americans and Russians were running into significant issues trying to help their astronauts cope with the effects of crushing G forces. The human body simply wasn’t built to handle such intense gravity and they soon realized that normal techniques wouldn’t work in such extreme circumstances. The solution they came up with was the use of a reclining position for astronauts which has since come to be known as the zero gravity position.
We’re going to look at what exactly the benefits of the zero gravity reclining position are and how they can benefit you in a massage chair. It turns out there are a lot of positive developments that happen when you sit in a massage chair designed to keep you in a zero gravity position while you’re being massaged.
