Right chair for good pos­ture

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Star Homes -

MUCH has been said about chairs – this in­nocu­ous item has been de­bated upon, as­so­ci­ated with, used and even taken for granted.

But what is the deal about chairs?

Sim­ply put; it is an item peo­ple can­not live with­out and can be harm­ful to the body if it is not taken se­ri­ously.

Most in­di­vid­u­als sit­ting in of­fice chairs as­sume poor pos­tures, re­sult­ing in the flat­ten­ing of the lum­bar spine and al­ter­ing the head car­riage.

Over time, this may lead to chronic lower back pain, weak ab­dom­i­nal mus­cles, and neck prob­lems that of­ten lead to headaches.

Stan­dard of­fice chairs are rigid and stiff with little or no mo­bil­ity. Such chairs in­duce an un­seen risk of in­jury to the body, un­til pain oc­curs.

Due to the body’s lim­ited move­ment, the act of sit­ting slows down heart ac­tiv­ity and de­creases blood cir­cu­la­tion, con­tribut­ing to in­juries to parts of the body that are re­spon­si­ble for move­ment.

In­juries re­sult­ing from sit­ting for long pe­ri­ods are a se­ri­ous oc­cu­pa­tional health and safety prob­lem. This prob­lem will likely be­come more com­mon in the fu­ture as the trend to­ward work in a sit­ting po­si­tion is still in­creas­ing.

With the ex­pe­ri­ence of a painful her­ni­ated in­ter­ver­te­bral disc a decade ago Ch­esters Col­lec­tion chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer James Edi­son has set out to find a so­lu­tion for pain re­lief as he could no

longer sit in a nor­mal chair.

Af­ter a se­ries of tests, Ch­esters Col­lec­tion presents the best sit­ting chair ever, the Wag­ner Ortho­pe­dic chair, fully made in Ger­many.

Wag­ner Ortho­pe­dic chairs are in­cor­po­rated with patented Don­dola of­fice sys­tem, a three-di­men­sional fully mo­bile seat pro­vid­ing op­ti­mal move­ment that keeps your blood cir­cu­la­tion in mo­tion.

Healthy ef­fect

Only move­ment can pro­vide the backs with healthy ef­fect. Per­ma­nent move­ment of the pelvic re­gion builds your back mus­cles and thus, strength­ens the back mus­cles. This is fur­ther proven with the ex­ten­sive med­i­cal study at Univer­sity of Re­gens­burg un­der the di­rec­tion of Prof Dr Joachim Grifka on the sin­gu­lar ef­fec­tive­ness of the Don­dola of­fice sys­tem.

The re­sult tested on pa­tients with acute back pain reg­is­tered a sig­nif­i­cant pain de­crease of around 66% with­out us­ing med­i­ca­tion.

Be­yond that Don­dola, by its move­ment, im­proved gen­eral well-be­ing over up to 39%.

Wag­ner chairs are de­signed with un­par­al­leled qual­ity and er­gonomic seat­ing po­si­tion to suit the user’s life­style.

The lat­est Ti­tan se­ries is com­pletely up­hol­stered in top-grain leather, fab­ric or mesh and equipped with one of the most ad­vance Don­dola tech­nol­ogy and auto-syn­chro­nous mech­a­nism to au­to­mat­i­cally sense and ad­just its func­tion to suit the body weight for op­ti­mal bal­ance and ul­ti­mate free­dom in move­ment.

This mech­a­nism alone was tested to be “very good” with the re­sults pub­lished in the Septem­ber 2008 edi­tion of lead­ing pro­fes­sional jour­nal Facts.
