Healthy office chairs for healthy sitting
On average, a person sits six hours a day. The human body is more made for walking. The one-sided stress caused by long periods of sitting has consequences for health. Many days off in the office are caused by back problems. Tension in the muscles causes back pain, and the neck, neck, shoulders and the lumbar spine are particularly susceptible. However, such ailments as hemorrhoids can also be a result of long periods of sitting in traditional chairs.
The healthy office chair - the most important features
Desk work is anything but healthy. Because whoever sits sins - science has long since found out. So it all depends on the right office chair. In the following points, we will explain briefly and succinctly what makes a healthy office chair stand out.
A healthy office chair follows the movement of the back: Whether you bend forward, turn to the side or lean back, the health chair is based on the various movements and adapts to them. The targeted change between the different sitting positions relieves the spine and intervertebral discs in the long term.
A healthy office chair encourages dynamic sitting: A health chair is built in such a way that it always keeps the pelvis and back minimally in motion. Movable modules actively adapt and spring back when you are seated. The constant, tiny, fine changes in the sitting position keep the body with its muscles, tendons and ligaments relaxed and flexible.
A healthy office chair is height adjustable: A health chair should always be ergonomically adapted to the individual body size and shape. Ideally, the feet should be relaxed on the floor when sitting, at least three fingers fit between the back of the knees and the front edge of the chair, and the upper and lower arms should form a right angle with the table top. The backrest should also be adjustable. Make sure that the lumbar support is at the height of the belt line.
A healthy office chair prevents back problems: Back problems caused by a lack of exercise are often a result of rigid sitting. Statically squeezed between the seat and the backrest, the back stiffens. Healthy, back-friendly office chairs help by allowing more movement when sitting. The connective tissue remains supple, the intervertebral discs are nourished and the blood can circulate.
A healthy office chair alleviates existing complaints: Back problems caused by a lack of exercise are often a result of rigid sitting. A healthy office chair does away with static sitting and instead promotes ergonomically optimal sitting in motion. With many changing sitting positions, the intervertebral discs are well nourished through osmotic fluid exchange and thus function better in the long term as a damping element of the resilient spine.
Active sitting is healthy
The patented work chairs from HARA STUHL were developed in Korea in collaboration with doctors and scientists. But why are the HARA STUHL models now medical office chairs? And how do you even recognize a health chair? Quite simply: healthy office chairs support the natural movements of the person sitting. The divided seating system from HARA STUHL is based on a highly flexible seat. With the dynamic technology of HARA STUHL, the body can swing freely. There is no pressure anywhere, nothing jams. The blood can circulate freely. Even in the static situation of sitting, the body remains flexible. Tension is released through the fine movements of the two-part seat. At the same time, the active seating system strengthens the deep-lying pelvic floor and back muscles. This stabilizes the spine and nourishes and relieves the intervertebral discs. Even a slight sore muscles can set in at the beginning if you are not used to sitting on a HARA CHAIR. Because healthy office chairs offer more than just a rocking function of the backrest. The entire body is challenged and encouraged.
Health chairs for the office
Orthopedists and ergonomists generally recommend dynamic sitting. That means changing your sitting position as often as possible. The split seating system of the health chairs by HARA STUHL naturally adapts to the ideal angle of the pelvis for men and women and forces the body to change its posture again and again. This can be supported by the split backrest, as it is integrated into the NIE model. The split back support has direct contact with the ribs depending on the sitting position. The backrest gives way when you lean against it and moves with your back and shoulder blades.
Lordosis support: relieve the lumbar spine
This is not the case with the ZEN-LS, ZEN and CAE models, whose closed backrests primarily provide effective support for the lumbar area. The HARA CHAIR model ZEN-LS even has an integrated upholstery. This lordosis support relieves the lumbar spine. The ZEN-LS model is particularly suitable for people with a light to strong hollow back or after a herniated disc. The ergonomic shapes of the ZEN and CAE models also support the loins as well as the shoulders and are also very comfortable thanks to their padding. The CAE model, an executive chair, is ideal for tall and heavy people to sit on thanks to its wide seat, high backrest and stable construction.
Which model is “the” healthy office chair depends on your personal requirements. The body weight plays a role as well as the individual symptoms. If you have already had a herniated disc in the lumbar spine, you could benefit from a lumbar support. You can try for yourself at home with a rolled up towel or pillow whether you find the S-padding in the lower back comfortable.
