No, there is no right or wrong sitting position, but there is one that causes the least damage, and that one can be learnt. In ergonomics, we talk in this context about correct physiological sitting, where the original double-S shape of the spine is by and large maintained. To do this, it is necessary to adjust the chair correctly, and then to sit dynamically.
Can my chair contribute to healthy sitting?
Ergonomic chairs feel good, and they strengthen the back. Their most important task is to support the body in its seated position as well as possible, and at the same time guarantee it the greatest possible freedom to move around, so that the body can sit just as it wants to.
What does active or dynamic sitting mean?
Due to their physiology, human beings are not designed for passive sitting hours on end. Active or dynamic sitting requires a continuous change of working position, in order to put pressure on and take pressure off various muscles and parts of the body. An office chair therefore has to support the natural human need to move, at the same time enabling the sitter to concentrate on work in a forward-leaning position, and guaranteeing a relaxed resting position that supports the back.
Is it possible to sit healthily and comfortably at the same time?
Healthy sitting and a feeling of comfortable sitting cannot be separated. Top sitting comfort can be defined as best possible support for the natural movements of the body, provided by the technology of the office chair, and simple, user-friendly controls with which to adjust the chair. The design can also have a positive influence on someone's personal sitting experience, and can improve productivity by up to 36%.
Why is a badly-adjusted office chair counterproductive?
An office chair is only as good as the appropriate chair adjustment, since the EN 1335 Standard unfortunately only takes people between 1.51 m and 1.84 tall into account. Office chairs that offer the perfect sitting experience have therefore to be adjustable to the individual body size of the sitter, so that sitting is not a burden, but on the contrary, thanks to the health-promoting effects of the office chair, it becomes a pleasure.
Is "standard" enough, or should we look for something more?
Each person has individual needs. For this reason Interstuhl offers a very wide range of innovative office chairs that can be individually equipped. Numerous developments such as the active seat depth adjustment (Astiv) or the BodyFloat synchronous mechanism have been patented. There is one thing all the chairs offer: they are equipped in such a way that they allow - and promote - every movement of the human body, and their additional options allow you to adjust the chair to every user, even when he or she falls outside the "normal" range of sizes.
