Blog/How to choose your chair
15 November, 2018 Leave a comment Uncategorized
The seat is an essential part of the work space. It must meet both aesthetic and comfort requirements. It must enable the user to move and adapt to all work situations, without any constraints and, at the same time, it must guarantee very good back support. Every range of chair is available in several models to satisfy users’ needs while ensuring a certain harmony in the work space
It is important to know the different adjustment possibilities to adapt the chair to your type of work :
– back-height to position the lumbar support correctly
– seat-height to avoid compression points under the legs
– the tilting tension according to the user’s morphology , for free and easy movements
– the mechanism :
Permanent floor contact: The backrest follows the user’s movements thus keeping in contact with his back. You can block the mechanism in the desired position and obtain a fixed forward position favorable to typing or writing.
Permanent floor contact system with seat/backrest synchronisation : The backrest can be blocked in the desired position with backward tilting.
Tilting : Blocking system with 6 positions which enables the chair to follow the body’s natural movements. The tilting rotation point situated at the front of the seat at knee level ensures a global backward tilting of the seat while maintaining a reassuring stability and floor contact.
-The height of the arm
-rests in certain working conditions to optimize the ideal position for comfort. It is sometimes necessary to rest your arms.
-seat depth for tall people and seat dampening to avoid pressure on intervertebral discs.
It is important to try the chair out. Are you sitting comfortably?
1st exercise :
Stretch your arms towards the ceiling with the palms of your hands parallel to the ceiling, then stretch your right arm and alternate with the left. Breathe deeply.
2nd exercise :
Chest upright, arms relaxed, slowly draw circles with your shoulders first forewards and then backwards. Breathe in when your shoulders are upwards or backwards. Breathe out when your shoulders are forwards or downwards.
3rd exercise :
Seated correctly, chest upright, hands gripping the seat, slightly lift your pelvis on the right and return to your initial position. Do the same thing on the left. Breathe in while lifting and breathe out when you are back in your initial position
With your feet positioned correctly on the floor, make sure that your back is well-supported to reduce fatigue caused by the sitting position, and that the right density of foam ensures the correct distribution of body weight giving muscle relief. Adjust the angle of the backrest/seat to relieve abdominal pressure and to improve breathing. Now move…Your chair should fit you like a glove.
In addition, we suggest some 2-minute exercises to do 2 or 3 times a day to help you relax your muscles and to show you the importance of positioning your chest and legs correctly and to remind you to open your rib cage systematically.
