Using the exercise egg ball within an Ergo Chair in your home or office is a simple, yet effective, way to add some activity to your life, especially if you spend a lot of time at a computer!
Everyone knows that Americans are becoming more sedentary. We are now realizing that this increasing decline in physical activity is having very negative effects on our health. Take a minute and, without moving, think about how you are sitting? Are you slumped back into a chair? Slumped sideways? How often are you in this position? Have you ever thought about what it might be doing to your back and your overall health?
Poor posture leads to uneven loading of disks in the spine and a compression of respiratory and digestive organs. Also, most chairs come with a back support and, while this may be more comfortable, the support decreases the strength of the muscles that support your spine. This decrease in strength can lead to back pain or put you at risk for a back injury.
The Ergo Chair promotes "active sitting" giving your body the flexibility it needs to sit comfortably all day because there are constant small adjustments in your back, hips, knees and ankles to keep you balanced on the egg ball. These small adjustments help circulation to the disks in your spine and can strengthen your back muscles. Also, gentle bouncing on the egg ball will encourage you to sit in the correct posture and will strengthen your postural muscles, and all you have to do is SIT!
Most back problems are simply due to tension and muscular tightness, which come from poor posture, being overweight, inactivity and lack of abdominal strength. There are a lot of ways back pain can occur and even more ways to treat it, but how often do you hear about ways to prevent it?
Most experts agree that inactivity combined with prolonged sitting can lead to back pain. So it makes sense that gentle exercise would be a great preventive measure in back care.
When a chair seat is flat, it reduces the natural curve in the lower spine, compressing the vertebrae and causing lower back strain.
An egg ball permits the pelvis to rest in its natural position (a slight downward tilt); the spine stays curved, reducing strain in the back, neck and shoulders. This "open hip angle" is the natural curve of the spine when you are standing.
Slumping is not a natural postural alignment; however, researchers have found it is a habituated posture when our attention is distracted by functional tasks. In fact, the slump is discouraged by sitting on the Ergo Chair because this harmful posture is not supported by a “back rest” and poor posture is uncomfortable when sitting in the Ergo Chair...
The most positive aspect of the Ergo Chair is the continual posture correction that reduces the static loading of the spine. Traditional nonadjustable chairs do not encourage movement.
The Ergo Chair supports the weight of the pelvis and facilitates the proper use of the sit bones, encouraging an easeful distribution of weight. The inflated egg ball seat sends a continual subtle message to "move up" which keeps the spine from slumping in a C curve. The egg ball responds individually to the weight and body movement of each user. Tension is released throughout the shoulders and back. This is an ideal chair for people whose work involves long periods of sitting as well as for those who have injured their backs.
The Ergo Chair make you sit actively: work your muscles, move your spine, develop good posture, and improve your balance while sitting. It's an "active seating solution". Keeps the core muscles active, strengthening the abs and spine and promotes good posture. It encourages movement while sitting which improves circulation to the intervertebral discs and lower extremities, improves conditioning of low back muscles and improves stabilization of the spine.
The Ergo Chair can accommodate people as tall as 6’3’ which is the height limit for the chair.
Many users are reporting a vast improvement in their ability to sit for prolonged hours while feeling no stress, no back pains and an improved flow of blood and energy throughout their body while enjoying the experience of sitting.
