Best Chairs for Bad Backs
BAD BACKS, ONCE YOU HAVE ONE YOU HAVE A BELLWETHER FOR PROPER ERGONOMIC DESIGN
After my third pregnancy I discovered a new ability: I could tell you in less than 2 weeks if a chair had ergonomics that kept a body healthy. What do I mean by that? Even the best looking, most award winning chairs had to pass the most sensitive test: the bad back. The #1 best selling ergonomic chair in the world fails this test - just look at any installation and you will find most of the users have purchased back pillows, lumbar support add ons, etc. The secret to a good chair is to do no harm and to be enjoyable to sit on. Metal waffle chairs that give bare skin dimples - NO! Chairs need to provide respite for the body, it does not matter what the chair looks like. Here are my three chairs for bad backs:
What’s the secret? Great lumbar support AND upper spine support AND sculpted back that allows shoulders to move freely AND a sculpted seat that allows the user to sit in and against the lumbar support. There is a lot that goes into the chair - but painfree sitting is priceless.
