Adaptive Seating

 

We all do it at some point in the day, some of us longer than others. Long hours of sitting causes muscle stress and back, neck and leg pressure and most people do it the majority of their workweek. To relieve this pain and sit in a more comfortable, natural and correct posture, use adaptive seating to support your total body weight. Seat and back cushions are ideal support systems because they offer support to your specific body shape to ensure your body weight is evenly distributed. Adaptive seating is an ergonomics solution for the home, office or car and an ideal alternative if you have no choice but to keep an uncomfortable chair.

  Back Cushions
 

The lower area of the chair should provide full contact to support your lower back. Without this support, pressure is put on the lower back and travels all the way to the shoulders. Full back cushions also help keep shoulders in a natural position to reduce tension in the neck and shoulders. People find them useful for chairs, reclining lounges, and automobiles.Select a back cushion that encourages the 2-4-finger space between seat and back of knees. Some chairs are too deep and need a thicker cushion while other seats are too narrow, requiring a thicker back cushion.


  Seat Cushions
 

Most of us sit rounded forward, hunched or slouched. This rounding magnifies your fatigue because you're reducing oxygen and circulation while increasing muscle fatigue. A angled wedged seat cushion that helps you sit forward engages a broader base of support for your spine and tailbone and also opens your chest promoting more oxygen into your system allowing relaxed, healthy posture and clear thinking. Along with enhancing the natural curve of your spine, an angled wedged seat cushion keeps thighs and muscles comfortably supported allowing you to sit longer without pain. Using adaptive supports solutions takes the discomfort out of dining room seating, bucket seats in cars and metal folding chairs.


  Footrest
 

Keep your knees at a 90-degree angle and feet flat on the floor. If the height of your desk and chair does not allow you to place both feet flat on the floor, an adjustable footrest (or telephone book) will help you maintain the correct sitting posture.

 

Keep in mind, dangling legs encourages varicose veins. A footrest also eases lower back tightness by elevating your legs and supporting the feet and legs. Varied positioning on a footrest helps break up the static load caused by staying in one position too long.
