THE IMPORTANCE OF SITTING SIGHTLY RECLINED & TOTAL CONTACT BACK SUPPORT
Sitting slightly reclined is the key to maintaining a healthy back, and reducing the opportunity for Non Accidental Injury (NAI) from occurring due to an improper posture.
In the first test, it was clearly seen that combining ‘recline’ with ‘lumbar support’ reduces lumbar disc pressures.
This test compared lumbar disc pressure in chairs which have nil, 3cm and 5cm of lumbar support.
The outcome of this was that the further one reclines, with increased lumbar – the more that pressure in the lumbar spine was reduced
The second test highlighted the measurement of muscle activity in the back. When a user was positioned at 80° (or sitting forward over the desk) – muscle activity was at its highest as the spine needed considerable support.
When the same user reclined backwards through 90°, and sat rearwards at between 105° and 110°, it was seen that muscle activity had been more than halved from when that user was sitting in a forward position.
In summary, for users who sit for extended periods of time, the key to be able to do so in a healthy working posture is to sit slightly reclined in order to reduce both lumbar disc pressures – and muscle activity
