Relieves lumbar pain

Adaptic tilting seats adjust to the movements of your lumbar and pelvic areas, enabling various musculoskeletal functions: The spine maintains an S-shape, which is optimal for the wedge-like profile of the vertebrae. This relieves the stress on vertebrae and spinal discs, a common cause of lumbar pain. A variety of back muscles take the load off the spine itself, preventing its overstressing. When tilting forward, the lumbar load is also… Read full post

Releases stiff neck

The leading causes of cervical spinal pain are static overload and muscle imbalance. This can happen after several hours sitting on a static-seat office chair, where the spinal erector muscles become fatigued and posture deteriorates to a hunchbacked state with the head jutting forward. This leads to overloading of the cervical spine, causing sudden-onset pain. Poor posture may result not only from standard office chairs, but… Read full post

Strengthens deep core stability muscles

At the core of the torso lie the deep core stability muscles of the spine (DCSM), a group of muscles which support the spine in its load-bearing function. DSCM muscles are found deep within the torso, underneath the surface back muscles. Due to their position, these muscles cannot be exercised easily, but Adaptic chairs can help here as well. The stability of the spine depends to a considerable extent on the paravertebral muscles. These… Read full post

Strengthens back and abdominal muscles

Adaptic therapeutic chairs allow activation of the deep core stability muscles of the spine (DCSM – see previous item), as well as muscles of the back and abdomen. The use of all appropriate muscles allows maintaining optimal posture for static load. With these muscles active, the spine curves naturally and the individual vertebrae and discs are evenly loaded. Such optimal posture is only possible with many muscles… Read full post

Prevents scoliosis

Scoliosis is a sideways deformation of the spine consisting of rotation of the vertebrae or their shifting to the side. The result is an unphysiological spinal curvature preventing the attainment of proper posture, commonly leading to pain primarily in the lumbar area and neck. In severe scoliosis, pain tends to manifest mainly when sitting or walking. Various muscles become overstrained and painful symptoms may increase over time. Scoliosis… Read full post

Straightens hunched back

Long-term sitting with hunched back (effectively all standard and ergonomic office chairs) increases the stress on spinal discs, as the weight of the torso is not symmetrically distributed. The anterior (front) part of the disc is under more pressure than the posterior (back) part, eventually tending to compress the disc into a wedge shape and overload the ligaments that help stabilize the disc. The core of the disc tends to shift position,… Read full post
