Founded in 1995, our team of experts, including orthopedists, chiropractors and physical therapists have been evaluating home and office products for their value in improving and maintaining the health of their users.
Over the past two decades, there have been significant achievements in the area of office furniture. As we have transitioned into a society of desk-based occupations, people have become more mindful of the health issues that have arisen due to office lifestyles. Designers have responded in kind.
Here are some of the products that we review here at Modeets:
Kneeling chairs have recently become one of the most popular office furniture pieces. They’re valued for their innovative design, which provides you added relief for the lower spine. The increased angle between your upper and lower bodies gives more space to your hip area, which is directly connected to the lower vertebrae of the spine. You will feel a difference in immediately.
In addition, kneeling chairs are designed to encourage proper posture. The lack of a high back rest, requires the sitter to sit upright, with the vertebrae stack upon each other. This position is easier on the muscles of the spine and ensures a health posture that will preserve the integrity of your spine.
Ball chairs have been adapted from exercise balls, also known as Swiss or yoga balls. This chair offers you many benefits. Like with the kneeling chair, you’ll automatically come into perfect vertical posture. The absence of a back rest, discourages slouching and reclining.
In addition, sitting on a ball chair requires balance in 360 degrees of rotation. This yields the additional benefit of strengthening the core muscle groups, including your abdominals, obliques, and lumbar. You’ll be able to get a work out while you work.
Mesh Task Chairs
A mesh task chair is designed with a nylon breathable mesh backrest. The rest is designed to conform and mold to your back. Many people enjoy this type of chair because of it is adaptable to anyone’s body.
These chairs typically feature a multitude of adjustments allowing you to position yourself in an optimal ergonomic configuration. Some common adjustable features include: tilt control, locking recline angle, back height, seat height, seat depth, lumbar support, and arm height.
Mesh chairs are typically priced higher, but are valued for their professional quality and increased customization.
