I would like to create a new massage mechanism and would like to modify from an existing massage chair. May I know what is required. Thank you.

Best regards,
Adam

I'm confused: In which way is the mechanism linked to programming a microcontroller?

You tell us!

What have you currently got? What do you want it to do?

Thank you for the feedback. I mean the standard massage chair come with a microcontroller that has pre-set movement of the motor in the massage mechanism. I would like to know if we can re-program the micro controller to control the motor to move according to my own predefined set of movement.

The answer is yes.

But you have to know that:

(a) the device is actually reprogrammable (i.e. data is not stored in ROM)
(b) that you know the coding in use (i.e. the language) and that it is accessible i.e. unencrypted
(c) you know WHAT parameters need changing
(d) you know WHERE to access those parameters
(e) you know HOW to upload the data
(d) you have the equipment to do it (assuming (a-e) are applicable)

..... off you go!
