Ideas for Back Support
Ideas for Back Support
1. Posture Saddle Chair
● The saddle stool places the pelvis in a near-neutral, stress-free position, thus naturally
balancing the spinal curves. Helps relieve strain on neck muscles and vertebrae, which
can help reduce headaches, and pain in arms or hands.
● Allows the closest positioning to the patient or work station
Pressure less sitting, even when you are sitting for longer
periods of time. Most of the weight of the upper body is on the
sitting bones, which keeps the pelvis in a neutral position,
leaning slightly forward.
Preventing fatigue and improving productivity through deeper breathing
Relieving or eliminating lower back pain (oftentimes it disappears in a week)
The unique seat contour ensures you'll bend forward from your hips, not from
your back
Shoulder joint problems often come from elevated or abducted shoulder
postures, which stress the shoulder joint. A riding-like sitting position allows
lower positioning of the patient, which improves shoulder posture.
Adapting to a saddle chair takes some effort because almost everything changes.
The body needs time to adjust. Learning to use the saddle chair takes a few days
and the "Saddle soreness" in the butt and inner thighs as well as tiredness in the
back muscles lasts 2-14 days. As a return you may realize a healthier body, better
posture, higher productivity (more patients with the same energy), improved
quality of work and more satisfying years at work.
With the Saddle Stool there is no need for lumbar support because the correct lumbar
curve is maintained naturally rather than artificially.
Yes. There is a massive amount of evidence, from research carried out across the world,
that most conventional seats cause posture related problems. And the saddle seat has
been scientifically proven to help reduce or avoid these problems.
Enhance muscle tone. In the Saddle Seat your posture is active rather than
This stable, straddle posture also improves hand accuracy and power, and
improves sitting balance.
Ideal for dentists, hygienists, chairside assistants, vets, hairdressers, engineers,
or anyone who requires comfortable ergonomic seating at work!
You will especially benefit from the Saddle Seat if your work involves:
i. Close hand-eye coordination requiring precision and accuracy
ii. A lot of reaching.
iii. Moving your body along with your arms.
iv. Viewing closely or at odd angles
v. Work spread out over a large area.
vi. Varying work heights.

2. Mesh office chair
● Allows you to float forward and backward without harmful pressure
● The Active Tilt seat plate pivots smoothly forward and backward to promote
proper body alignment.
● The "Free-Float" backrest stays with you as you lean forward, giving you
continuous support. The convex shape of the backrest massages and improves
blood flow to your lower back.
3. Dental Operator Stool
● Dentists are at high risk for musculoskeletal disorders due to the nature of their work.
They suffer from similar issues as the operators at micro pen. This link shows a verity of
stools recommended for dentists to prevent work – related musculoskeletal disorders.
Operator Stools: How Selection and Adjustment Impact Your Health Waterfall Seat stool
● The deeply contoured seat forces you to sit all the way back in
the seat, ensuring that the sculptured backrest is in firm contact
with the lumbar region of your back.
● Waterfall front allows better circulation in the lower leg
● A soft seat front does not make an ergonomic chair.
● True waterfall design, while just one of a number of concepts in
ergonomic seating, is an essential principle. Your chair must be
designed so that the seating position can be slightly elevated
beyond the parallel without restricting blood flow to the legs.
This allows an operator to maintain a forward and upward
posture while operating and transfers some of the body’s
support to the feet.

5. Kneeling Chair
● Provides more comfort to the feet and legs. While you are seated,
your knees are properly supported, which takes off the tension on
your lower legs and feet when you sit.
● Improves proper alignment of the spine. Another advantage of
kneeling chairs is it prevents slouching because of the innate 30
degree angle of the seat. For those working for longer hours, it
prevents the gradual slouching and dropping of the shoulders making
you maintain proper spinal alignment while you work.
● Improves concentration. It was seen that when you sit in a kneeling
position, you gain better concentration for the task at hand as compared
to being seated in conventional way.
● The Balens chair slopes forward so the operator can maintain a natural
“S” curve in the back. This position raises the pelvis and alleviates back
discomfort. Weight is shifted from the lower back to an even distribution
over the back and thighs.
● Sitting in a Balens chair for an extended period of time may cause knee or
leg discomfort due to immobilization of the legs.

6. Zackback
● Forward-Leaning Work Posture: If the microscope/microtome user is forced
to assume a forward-leaning work posture, no lumbar support is possible.
However, unlike lumbar support, sacral support can still provide proper
pelvic and spinal stabilization in a forward-leaning posture. The
combination of proper sacral support from the ZACKBACK chair, along with
an open space below the sacral support for the buttocks, allows the
microscope/microtome user to still obtain sacral support in a forwardleaning posture.
● The ZACKBACK Chair promotes one's optimal healthy, upright posture by stabilizing two
key areas ignored by chairs with lumbar support and reclining backrests: the pelvis and
the rib cage
These dramatic results are possible because
ZACKBACK’s Lower Thoracic Support moves
independently forward to firmly support the user’s
back in a healthy upright posture. In traditional
“ergonomic” chairs with lumbar support and
reclining backrests, the microscope/microtome user
is forced to pull away from the backrest in order to
sit upright. The end result is a slumped posture, the
posture with the greatest risk for developing back,
neck, and upper extremity pain!
7. Neutral Posture Ab Chair Industrial and Healthcare Chair and Stool
● Ideal for medical and dental environments, drafting, glove box,
assembly, inspection applications and practically any forwardleaning task. The patented AbChair relieves lower back strain
caused by an out of balance posture. The unique AbRest pillow
swings around and into position, and adjusts for height and depth.
