Homegrown health and wellness powerhouse OSIM has launched the world’s first gaming massage chair – the uThrone. The uThrone incorporates OSIM’s time-tested health and wellness technologies housed within an ergonomically-designed chair, bringing to users greater comfort and relief when gaming or working at their desks. The OSIM uThrone features homegrown mandopop singer JJ Lin as its ambassador, a synergistic collaboration given his efforts to grow the local e-sports scene.

As a testament to the comfort and efficacy of the uThrone, JJ Lin even lent his creative eye to the development of his own custom-designed chair in deep purple. 17 of these custom designed chairs were given out to his closest friends such as fellow musician Jay Chou, NBA star Jeremy Lin and DJ Steve Aoki.

Boasting a streamlined design with double Bluetooth speakers embedded within its headrest, the uThrone brings users an immersive audio quality experience and empowers them to always bring their A-game.

Developed to withstand the high humidity in Singapore and long hours of use, the uThrone is clad in PVC leatherette that has been certified by BOKEN – Japan’s leading testing organisation for textile and lifestyle goods. Each chair has also undergone rigorous stress tests to ensure maximum durability and comfort in every game, and is certified by Intertek Testing Services to ensure the highest standards of product integrity and performance. Complete with an adjustable backrest and lumbar support to fit any frame, the OSIM uThrone delivers gaming comfort for all users.
