Ergonomic Chairs

Saddle chairs - Its unique, triangular cushion encourages users to sit in a "saddle" posture, which lowers the thighs, rotates the pelvis forward and puts the spine into its natural lordotic curve. The"saddle" posture also reduces pressure points for longer-term comfort and allows users to get closer to their work. It is ideal for short duration computer work, clinical applications or as a side-seating option.

Spinalis chair adapts itself to your movements. Thus it prevents an incorrect body position which is with conventional chairs rather the rule than the exception. The backrest is additionally padded in the loin area and gives the back a pleasant support. The backrest and the arm-rests are, independently from the seat & height adjustable. The backrest moves in harmony with you.
