FEBRUARY 2019 RETAILOBSERVER.COM 17 TOTO INTRODUCES NEW FLOTATION TUB TOTO™ has developed the world's first zero-gravity bathtub in which bathers experience total weightlessness. TOTO calls this extraordinarily calming, tension- free bathing experience Zero Dimension TOTO's Flotation Tub simulates zero gravity by offering bathers the experience of total weightlessness. To achieve this breakthrough, TOTO dedicated 10 years' research to the neurology of relaxation, body positioning, and bathing. TOTO determined a specific reclining posture with the buttocks lower than the slightly bent legs generated the experience of total weightlessness. Astronauts' bodies automatically assume this posture at zero gravity; they sleep in it. TOTO's research revealed this ZERO DIMENSION bathing posture completely relaxes mind and body. Quieting the brain's response to stress and arousal encourages deep mental and muscular relaxation, enhanced by special massage jets producing a therapeutic flow of warm air bubbles enveloping the entire body. A stream of warm water flows from the height-adjustable Neck Spa, an ergonomic pillow that keeps the neck and shoulders comfortably warm. HYDROHANDS massage jets create the experience of real hands massaging the lower back. All functions are easily operated using the control panel on the inside of the tub. List Price: $19,269.00.
