It may come as a surprise, but this is the ideal ergonomic chair. It removes all the pressure off your neck, shoulders and lower back, particularly helpful if you regularly need to sit for more then seven hours in front of a computer.
Ergonomics is the study of the relationship between workers and their environment, esp the equipment they use. It is also known as biotechnology.
For more information about healthy sitting chairs look at work place on the Canadian Occupational Health website.
According to Professor Stuart McGill, Professor of Spine Biomechanics in Canada, the slouch position is best. Why do you think those Formula 1 racing drivers can cope without endless lower back pain? If you observe their cars you’ll see that the seats are specially designed to take the pressure off the vertebrae.
Note that reclining is the perfect position for the lower back but isn’t possible in the work place!
