Why Jolly Back chair has been developed
Many important professionals work at low heights - teachers, nursery nurses, childcare practitioners, midwives, children's therapists, nurses, carer for example. Repetitive poor postures (bending over, over-stretching, twisting, awkward lifting, flexed sitting) are frequently adopted, as staff undertake the necessary low level activities required of them, day-in-day-out.
These repetitive poor postures, along with kneeling and squatting, are not only uncomfortable, but research highlights they are also damaging. This puts staff at an increased risk of acquiring musculoskeletal problems, in particular, back, hip, knee, neck and shoulder pain.
The Jolly Back Chair has been specifically designed to reduce these damaging postures and promote healthy sitting - a low level seating solution is provided. Every feature has a function, comfort and quality in mind.
Principles of Healthy Sitting Posture
- Head upright to maintain eye contact - neck and shoulders free to move with muscles relaxed.
- Inward Lumbar (lower back) curve maintained - reduces back ache, slipped discs and sciatica. Assists correct neck alignment.
- Knees level or slightly lower than hips - reduces hip compression/ pain. Encourages natural lower spine alignment.
- Feet in contact with the floor - provides stability.
Unique features of the Jolly Back Chair
- Adjustable lower back support - promotes good posture and provides individual comfort by reducing muscle tension.
