What can an office chair with a split backrest do that other office chairs cannot? Whether when leaning back, turning to the side or bending forward, a split backrest adapts perfectly to the upper body. Depending on the sitting position, the flexible cushions lock onto the torso. The advantage: a split backrest is flexible and adjusts itself automatically. It supports the shoulder girdle and neck and effectively prevents tension. In this category you will find desk chairs from HARA STUHL, which are equipped with a split backrest. Our specialist advisors will be happy to help you find the right work chair for your back and your intervertebral discs.
Lean against it without pressure
The split backrest of the office chairs by HARA STUHL enables dynamic sitting. Unlike compact backrests, the movable back cushions avoid any pressure. Whether you are on the phone leaning forward, writing notes on a piece of paper while sitting upright or leaning back with a coffee cup to take a break, the flexible modules follow the movements of your body. The chest is supported in almost every sitting position, the spine is relieved, the intervertebral discs are spared and tension in the neck and neck area is prevented. The blood circulation is promoted. One thing is almost certain: with a split backrest, sleeping, numb arms and cervical spine syndromes are a thing of the past.
Split backrest for a strong back
Admittedly, sitting on an office chair with a split backrest is quite unusual at first. Often there is even a slight sore muscles at first. Because the flexible back modules automatically force the body to move - and that's a good thing. Because, as scientists have now discovered, sitting rigidly with a straight, straight back is rather unhealthy. Sitting in motion is the new motto. The more dynamic, the better. And the split backrest of the office chairs by HARA STUHL support active sitting. Movable and flexible, the back cushions nestle against the ribs. With every rotation, flexion or extension, the back modules go with the upper body. In this way, the split backrest adapts itself optimally, especially when it is turned. If the trunk rotates to the left, the left back cushion moves back and the right one forwards. If the chest rotates to the right, the left split backrest moves forward and the right backrest moves back again. Regardless of the sitting posture, the spine is optimally supported. This keeps the back mobile and the muscles active.
The split backrest - what it's good for
People who sit a lot do nothing good for their backs, unless they move around. In the following points, we will explain briefly and concisely what is important in an office chair - and what the split backrest in particular is good for.
A split backrest encourages moving sitting: An office chair with a split backrest is built in such a way that it supports the natural movements of the body, adapts to the various body positions with a springy fit and keeps the back moving minimally. The constant, minimal changes in posture while sitting keep the connective tissue with muscles, tendons and ligaments relaxed and flexible.
A split backrest adapts to the movements of the trunk: The movable modules in the back of the chair move actively with the torso in the various sitting positions and spring slightly. This means that the upper body is always kept moving flexibly. Tension caused by rigid sitting and lack of exercise are a thing of the past.
A split backrest prevents back problems: Low back pain is usually a result of rigid sitting. Statically squeezed between the seat and the backrest, the back is tense. A split backrest can help. The movable modules keep the ribs and intervertebral discs supple and allow the blood to circulate.
A split backrest alleviates existing back pain: One of the main causes of back pain is a sedentary lifestyle. An office chair with a split backrest encourages the body to change sitting position again and again. This relieves tension, the torso remains flexible and the intervertebral discs are nourished by osmotic fluid exchange - and function better in the long term as a damping element for the resilient spine.
Office chairs with split backrest for active sitting
The office chairs from HARA STUHL are designed for long periods of sitting. In addition to the split seat, which is integrated as standard in all models, the orthopedic back support differs. So far, only the NIE and NWL models have been equipped with a split backrest. These office chairs are particularly suitable as a preventive measure for healthy people without orthopedic complaints, who have to sit often and for long periods and want to do something good for their back. The new office chairs with the split backrest are also ideally suited for long periods of sitting, for example as a gamer chair.
For people who have a slightly to strong hollow back or even a herniated disc, the office chairs with a compact backrest are more recommended. The ZEN-LS, ZEN and CAE models provide effective lumbar support. The HARA CHAIR model ZEN-LS even has an integrated lumbar support that can be adjusted in two dimensions. And the CAE executive chair is ideal for tall, heavy people thanks to its wide seat, high backrest and stable construction.
Closed or split backrest?
Who an office chair with a split or closed backrest is suitable for depends on personal requirements. Body weight and height play a role here, as do the individual symptoms. If you sit a lot and for a long time, have no orthopedic complaints and want to prevent possible back pain, then your back could benefit in the long term from an office chair with a split backrest. If you have already had a herniated disc in the lumbar spine, an office chair with a lumbar support might be more suitable. You can test for yourself whether you find the S-padding in the lower back comfortable with a rolled up towel or pillow.
