Active Sitting on SpinaliS
Activatesweak core muscles
The active sitting on SpinaliS chairs will improve your posture by keeping your head, neck, and shoulders in perfect alignment. The movable seat is unstable, so you are forced to engage the core muscles and sit upright.
The moving seat “forces” you to straighten your back, have a correct head position and pull your shoulders down and back. Reducing stress on the trapezoid muscles and loosening the stiff cervical spine eliminates any possible blockage, thus relaxing a stiff neck.
Straightensa hunched posture
The movement of the seat straightens the back in the thoracic kyphosis area, restoring the physiological shape of the spine into its natural position (the natural curve of the spine in the shape of the letter “S”). Correcting a hunched back also improves the posture while increasing the pressure to organs in the chest, especially the lungs and stomach, which leads to improved breathing and digestion.
Reinforcesdeep stabilizing core muscles
The stabilization of deep spinal muscles is all about strengthening core muscles that stabilize the spine during all movements that we make. Deep stabilization plays an important role in protecting our spine against various loads and stress. Taking care of your spine requires constant exercising of deep stabilizing muscles, which in the sitting position is possible only on a Swiss ball or on a healthy SpinaliS chair.
Relievesthe lower back pain
The movable seat on SpinaliS chairs tilts forward when you lean over your desk, thereby allowing the spine to resume the lumbar lordosis at all times. With the correct position of the spine, there is a substantial reduction of the pressure on the vertebrae and intervertebral discs which effectively relieves the lower back pain.
Lumbar lordosis is important for the optimal position of the lumbar vertebrae which are wedge-shaped (higher in the front, lower in the back). In addition, the movable seat also reduces the stress in the lower back, unlike the chairs with fixed seats.
The pelvis is the center of our body. Free movement of the pelvis is very important as that's where lower limbs and upper body mobility begins. The movable seat on SpinaliS chairs allows for movement in all directions, assuring the unique mobility of the pelvis and therefore the entire body. In addition, it ensures the correct position of the spine. Sitting on a chair with a fixed seat doesn't allow for any movement of the lower part of your body, which is very limiting.
Preventsscoliosis of the spine
As confirmed by many clinical trials, SpinaliS chairs are considered appropriate means of prevention and treatment of scoliosis of the spine thanks to the following specific characteristics: Unique movable seat follows all movements of the body, the spine is in an ideal position, and the core muscles are actively working. In addition, it provides unique mobility of the pelvis and good support for the lower limbs. SpinaliS healthy chairs allow you to sit dynamically while balancing on a movable seat, and are suitable for all-day sitting.
Reducespressure on the intervertebral disc
The intervertebral discs serve as shock absorbers placed between the vertebrae. In order to maintain a healthy spine, we need to maintain their elasticity. The pressure on these discs in a horizontal position is approx. 50 lb, in an upright position around 200 lb, and when sitting on an ordinary chair with a fixed seat, it increases dramatically. While sitting on SpinaliS chairs this pressure is reduced due to constant movement and position changes. On the other hand, sitting on a regular or ergonomic office chair with a fixed seat and having a poor posture leads to a high burden on the discs. The gelatinous nucleus pulposus gradually moves back bending towards the spinal cord, which is referred to as herniated disc or disc herniation.
