Product Description & Benefits:
Designed in the 1970's, kneeling chairs are recommended by medical professionals around the world to take advantage of the biomechanical benefits of dropping the thighs in relationship to the spine. Muscular effort and lumbar sacral spine forces are more in balance front to back and side to side in the open thigh position and even more so when the legs are opened (abducted) creating what is called a "perched position". This innovative kneeling chair position makes sitting upright feel effortless. By promoting good posture, the chairs strengthen the lower back muscles helping spinal alignment and support.
Kneeling chairs allow many different variations in posture. You can sit with both legs supported on the knee cushion, or with only one leg supported and the other stretched out, or if stable both legs out and straddling the knee rest in a perched position. When using the knee pad, you can regulate the pressure on the shins by moving up or down on the seat.
The Standard Kneeling Chair features Black steel frame with nylon casters. The Kneeling chair is made of supportive polyurethane foam covered with durable fabric and the height can be adjusted manually. Orthopedic surgeons universally agree that reduced pressure on your spine, relieves muscle tension, increases circulation and is ideal for people who sit for long periods of time either at home or work.
The Standard Kneeling Chair comes with the following features:
Knee cushion size: 6.5" x 11"
Seat size:17.5" x 12.5"
Height range:21" to 28.5"
Studies show that back pain affects 80% of Americans at some time in their lives. Comfortable, anatomically correct sitting is essential for both good health and personal well being. Sitting improperly forces the spine into an unnatural position, thereby increasing pressure on the vertebral discs. As a result, it can cause backaches, excessive fatigue and decrease in concentration and efficiency. Because, not everyone can avoid back symptoms simply by correcting their posture, we have created this backrest seat that can only improve one's posture and control back symptoms. The Standard Kneeling Chair will especially help those with inability to stay in one posture for prolonged periods of time and with inability to seat in a correct position. The Standard Kneeling Chair encourages maximum relaxation of the back muscles by holding and supporting the natural curves of the lumbar vertebrae.
