Massage vest controls

The iMusic BodyRhythm massage vest features volume-style buttons. Rather than making the music louder, they raise or lower the intensity of the massage. You can pump it up for AC/DC or down for Kenny G.

Back massage to the beat

The back of the iMusic BodyRhythm vest is where most of the action happens. The vest's app also lets you play games or trigger the massage by shaking the phone.
