Chair, seat, chair: what to choose for his office so as to sit well and protect his back?
From a physiotherapist’s point of view, it’s a chair that allows you to keep your back straight.
Your spine retains its natural curvatures. The lumbar, lower back, are slightly hollowed.
You will find practical tips to keep you here .
- THE PERFECT SEAT FOR THE BACK EXISTS IT?
A perfect chair? A salesman of ergonomic chairs will tell you yes! But a health professional will inevitably be less categorical.
You have probably already read or heard that some seats were the must. There are 4 types of seats frequently known as “good for the back”:
The ergonomic wide office chair
The chair “kneeling”
The swapper chair
The saddle chair
The most favored seat in the back (and the neck) seems to be the seat “in the saddle”. It looks like a horse saddle, thighs coming down on the sides.
- MUST A FILE ON YOUR OFFICE CHAIR?
Does the backrest of your office chair influence your sitting position?
Our body is not made to stand still, in the same position, long time. Lumbago patients (with lower back pain) often notice that their pain increases when they have to stand or sit for a long time.
In the office, it’s valid too. Le Coin Form advises you to get up from your chair and move a little, at least every 45 minutes.
The backrest of your office chair can thus allow to change position and to breathe a little while resting there.
2 cases of figures therefore:
You sit most of the time (for example in front of a screen): having a folder will allow you to relax and change the position of your spine from time to time.
You are sitting but very active (you must often move, get up): a file is not essential since you already move a lot.
- WHAT CHAIR TO CHOOSE FOR YOUR BACK?
A saddle chair with backrest would surely be the trend of Coin Form. But the answer will surely be different for everyone!
Here are some things to check before buying a chair, chair or seat:
The chair must be compatible with your work environment.
Think about the height of the desk, the width of the passages if you have to ride and also think of the aesthetic aspect sometimes important (depending on your work).
The most important thing is to feel comfortable and not to have pains. For example, chairs in the saddle will not suit everyone.
“The chair does not make the monk. Also think about keeping yourself properly.
