Creating an Optimum Working Environment

The need to sit slightly reclined.

There are three main problems associated with extended periods of sitting, based on scientific evidence and research:

  1. The effect of back inclination on pressures on the lumbar spine.
  2. The effect of lumbar support on the pressures on the lumbar spine.
  3. The effect of seat pressure and its association with back inclination and lumbar support.

The current Worksafe Victoria “Officewise – A Guide to Health & Safety in the Office” refers to “A slight backwards tilt of the backrest” as being the preferred positioning for ergonomic seating. This is because the “force on the lower back is reduced”.

Ergonomists and other healthcare professionals acknowledge that the following 3 key elements prevent and relieve back pain:

  1. A total contact back-support system.
  2. A seat which allows good pressure distribution.
  3. A mechanism which facilitates for correct positioning; ideally one which is slightly reclined.

Research shows that a poorly designed seat – including some with dual density foams – may have inferior pressure-distribution patterns and ultimately increase disc pressure in the lumbar and coccyx areas coursing unhealthy long term effects. Our unique range of pelvic and posture support seat technology now use an amazing gel and visco foam, providing 100% support as the seat draws heat away from the user, and softens / molds itself to the precise shape of the person in the chair.
