Most of our lives, we spend huge amount of time sitting wherever we are. Although sitting requires less physical effort than standing or walking, it actually assert a lot of stress on the lumbar area. Combined effects of inactive lifestyle and long working hours may lead to long term injuries such as personal injuries, headache, low back pain and fatigue. To prevent these risks caused by the high pressure from the general chairs, an ergonomic environment adjusted workstation is the ultimate solution as it improves comfort and reduces the risk of long term injury of your healthy.
DUOREST® dual backrests support one’s back firmly without exerting pressure on the spine and distribute the pressure to the left and right back muscles effectively, by which DUOREST® split-back system creates a massaging effect on the entire back musculature, alleviating fatigue.
3-D movable connecting rubber equipped in DUOREST® split-back system allows the dual backrests to swivel in any direction as the user leans on the backrest.
This flexible movement at DUOREST® split-back system elevates the waist and enables its spine and muscles firmly embraced by the backrests. As a result, the pressure on the lumbar vertebra is reduced by 30~50% as compared to conventional chairs. Sitting balance control directly affects transfer performance.
An appropriate sitting position is fundamental to providing a stable base of support for transfer activities. A sense of position in space is another crucial factor when attempting a transfer. In addition, the ability to precisely and accurately control intentional movements of the center of gravity in different directions is important.
Back-related injuries which result from prolonged sitting are increasing tremendously. The prevalence of computers results in growing number of health-related complaints.
Contemporary chair designs should not focus only on appearances but also on their ergonomic features that offers dynamic sitting, which in turn, provides firm yet comfortable support for different postures with minimal pressure and weight load on the body. Choosing conventional chairs based on affordability and appearance may result in injuries on the spine and hips, as shown in the left picture below.
The body exerts 100% of its weight on the back when one is standing. However it is no less strenuous when one is sitting. The weight load on the upper body when sitting down, is 1.5 times the weight exerted on a standing body and 6 times the weight exerted on a person who is lying down. Prolonged improper sitting posture causes chronic back pain or spinal problems. To prevent backaches, it is ideal to keep your spine in an S-like posture and sit deep inside the seats.
It is also important to place the heels flat on the floor with the knees locked in a right-angle. Considering the above mentioned factors, it is important to choose a good chair equipped with ergonomic features that fits your physique and encourages dynamic sitting.
Studies show around 70% of school children may be damaging their spine by carrying heavy, poor fitting school bags. This can cause muscle strain, distortion of the spinal curve, drooping shoulders, muscle spasms and chronic back, neck and shoulder problems leading to a lifetime of sprain.
The importance of a good backpack
The effect of a poorly designed backpack on the spine:
1. Weight of pack pushes downwards.
2. Weight is transferred on to shoulder straps.
3. Shoulder straps sustain downward force of the entire backpack.
4. Child leans forward to counter balance the weight placed on the shoulders. This places excess strain on the neck, spine and shoulders.
The Solution: IMPACT
1. Weight of pack pushes downwards.
2. Orthopedic Spinal Protection System(OSPS) back care system effectively distributes the weight equally on the shoulders, back and waist.
3. It assists children in achieving correct posture and reducing stress on their growing spine.
-Ultra light weight
-Ergonomic design with special back-care system.
-High quality nylon material - UV protective & water repellant.
-Safety: with reflective material for better visibility.
-Functionality: book dividers & inner suspension improve stability. Endorsed and recommended by a recognized institute.
-After Sales Service: Warranty.
-Waist Strap. A waist strap can help direct the load away from the shoulders and onto the much stronger waist and hip muscle groups.
-Two Straps. Two straps balance the load on both shoulders. A single strap places the entire load on one side of the body.
-Size: The bag should be no larger than the child's back.
-Wide, Padded Straps. Wide straps distribute the load over more area of the shoulder. The wider the better.
-The straps should also be padded. Padding spreads the load as well as alleviates any pressure points.
