Human Touch Novo XT is one of the most feature-rich chairs by Human Touch, a company that is delivering quality products for four decades. Despite its long history, NovoXT is the first chair that can compete with models from Luraco and Osaki.
NovoXT was released only in November 2016, replacing Human Touch Novo model.
Novo provided a 2D track instead of the 3D you can find in the XT model.
This model from Human Touch is a unique massage chair. It offers a 3D L-track technology.
Let's find out what it can do and if it is worth your money.
This is one of the several models we can recommend to tall people. Considering that its specs show that it can hold someone as tall as 6’7″.
In this case, your neck may remain un-massaged so to speak. Still, it will fit perfectly in your neck area if you are under 6’4″.
Let's mention that if you are into the design kind of aspect - this is a beautifully designed chair, subjectively the most aesthetically appealing chair we ever came across.
A variety of colors (brown, black, cream, red, and dark gray) will ensure that it can fit any space and can enhance and improve it. Great job from Human Touch designers on this front.
This chair is manufactured and produced in China (Rongtai Factory) - the same factory as some of the Infinity chairs.
It is a quiet chair, but not as quiet as the Luraco i7 (the best in 2022 in our reviews, click here to read).
Chair equipped with mechanical foot rollers. You can adjust the speed of those rollers, which is a nice touch. And it is still kind of hard on your foot; you can use included foot pads for a less intense experience.
Also, it comes with foot airbags.
Some airbags will grab your heel and hold it during a massage, while other airbags will push the foot across the rollers. You can adjust the intensity of airbags to your liking.
Arm airbag material is equipped with rubber nobles that will hold your arm in place, so it does not slip out anywhere when airbags inflate. Arm massage is one of the best we experienced among the chairs we reviewed.
Body scan technology of the Novo XT is not actually auto-determine your heights and shoulder width. The screen with the body chart will let you choose a number from 1 to 9. One will represent the smaller body and 9 - the tallest body.
Anytime during the massage program, you can adjust the roller height if you missed it the first time around.
The Neck massage is pretty amazing in this chair. Considering that most chairs (even good ones) are lacking in this category. You can also adjust the depths for a more or less intense massage experience.
Novo XT provides excellent glute massage thanks to its advanced L-track system. 3D settings will allow you to change and adjust the intensity for a comfortable butt massage.
It is a heated chair for the best massage, but unfortunately, you can not adjust the heat intensity. Compare it to Luraco chair that can provide5 levels of heat intensity.
The Stretch program is also right on this model. Please note that because this is an L-track chair, it will not compete for horizontal recline, so stretch might not be as good as on S-track chairs.
You also need to know that this chair is a younger step-brother of Infinity Iyashi, as it’s made in the same factories as Iyashi.
In fact, if you’ve seen Iyashi, you would realize that they have many things in common like remote control look, L-track (NovoXT’s track is shorter, but it has 3D rollers), sliding base that enables space-saving features, a hip twist feature, and Bluetooth speakers.
Let's not talk about the quality of the speakers, but it is definable something to be improved by Human Touch.
The most significant drawback is that it’s made in China. But if you remember that it’s manufactured under the name of Human Touch with excellent customer support and a rare 5-year full warranty - it should give you some peace of mind.
Another drawback of this chair is that it’s heavy and bulky. But that’s a price you need to pay to have a fully assembled chair with space-saving features.
The speakers’ sound quality of Human Touch’s chair is inferior to Luraco iRobotics 7, and it has a weak body detection system. You need to choose the appropriate user height program manually. Plus, NovoXT can’t adjust strength in automatic programs which could be inconvenient for many.

It’s a runner-up to iRobotics7 (full review) due to the lower level of customization it can provide, an absence of seat and feet heat, lack of body detection technology, and Chinese assembly.
But it is a winner in space-saving cool modern design with availability in a broader range of colors and a great warranty.
It has for some reason it is one of the most popular chairs among consumers and has been consistently a great selling chair for many brick-and-mortar and online retailers.
