6 Trends in Spa Equipment Technology

6 Trends in Spa Equipment Technology
Since the launch of ChatGPT, we have not stopped talking about artificial intelligence (AI) and all of its applications and implications

Since the launch of ChatGPT last November, we have not stopped talking about artificial intelligence (AI) and all of its applications and implications. The science fiction of the ’80s has become science today, and the visions of writers and directors are slowly turning into reality. Let’s hope that at least James Cameron, with his Terminator, was wrong.

The world of wellness has not escaped this trend. It started with smartwatches, which have become medical consultants that constantly monitor us, report any problems and teach us how to improve our lifestyles. Now, companies strive to provide intelligent equipment throughout the spa.

You can already find an abundance of touchless equipment that promises the benefit of a treatment without the help (and cost) of the therapist. Virtual reality takes clients to fantastic worlds, transforming a spa treatment into a journey through exotic locales. There are studies for beds that can record guests’ reactions during the massage and communicate the data to the therapist who, in real time, can understand where to focus.

The latest generation of automations are able to provide treatments on par with a good therapist, but the energetic flow that moves from therapist to client and back, however, can’t be found in the circuitry of a machine. The technology available to spas today is not yet so invasive, so you can expect to see the continuation of these six equipment trends already underway.

1. Hygienic Performance

The pandemic has led us to prefer ventilated environments and, where the climate permits, outdoor services. So, the market now offers equipment made with better performing materials that respond to climatic and environmental factors. They are made to last longer and in tougher conditions than ever before.

For the same reason, companies are producing spa equipment with materials that prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria, that can also be easily sanitized between treatments.

2. Spa Sustainability

This will not go out of fashion anytime soon. The industry’s commitment to sustainability means building spa equipment from recycled and recyclable materials. For equipment that uses water, spas should look for technologies developed to reduce overall water consumption.
