Posture Chair?

Posture chair? 

What's that all about? 

Sounds expensive. 

What's wrong with my old chair?

Do you sit at your desk or workstation for long periods?
Do you get back ache or tension in the lower back or shoulders?

There's a good chance it's to do with or at least not helped by poor posture.

There is a lot of conflicting advice regarding seating position but there are a few key points to be aware of.

In my experience, the most common issue is slouching or leaning forward.
As i'm writing this i'm doing exactly that!

A few obvious key features are adjustable height arms, lumber support for your lower back, seat back adjustment and seat height adjustment. 

On top of this, some areas to be aware of are seat shape so as not to put unnecessary pressure on the underside of thighs and behind the knee, ideally the chair should have a seat slide to allow adjustment of the seat depth.

Don't over reach, keep things close, consider a foot rest, it makes a surprising difference and consider a wrist pad to rest your wrists on.

There's a lot to consider.

We have a great chair that addresses all of these issues and provide amazing support and comfort. It's called the Chiro +. It's an awesome chair and is Chiropractor approved for peace of mind.

I'm no expert but this is what I've learnt. If you want to discuss it in more detail please feel free to call us 0n 0800 1422626 for a friendly chat.
