Can a low-quality office chair (poor posture) cause death?
Sitting for long periods of time in a poorly designed or poorly adjusted chair can contribute to health problems that may increase the risk of death. If someone who sits with poor posture has underlying health conditions that are exacerbated by their poor posture, it’s possible that their poor posture could contribute to the severity of those conditions and potentially increase the risk of death.
For example, if someone with poor posture has a preexisting spinal condition such as scoliosis, and their poor posture causes increased strain on their spine, it could potentially worsen their condition and increase their risk of complications. Similarly, if someone with poor posture has a heart condition and their poor posture causes decreased circulation or increased strain on their heart, it could potentially worsen their condition and increase their risk of complications. This is why an office chair can be considered an investment in your health!
Anthros understands the implications of poor posture and has created a chair with every component intentionally designed to optimize posture for every body type.
1 Independently Adjustable Two-Part Back System
Anthros has designed a first of its kind back support. It adapts to individual body types by adjusting the low back and upper back independently. This means that you can adjust the low back support to support your pelvis in your optimal position, which will then align the spine. The upper back can then be adjusted to meet and support your spine in alignment.
2 Lowest Pressure Seat Cushion
When sitting in good posture, the pelvis is in neutral and the sit bones drive directly down into the seat surface. This is why the cushion is so important to maintain good posture over time!
Anthros has designed the lowest pressure dynamic density foam cushion with pressure relieving cut-outs to distribute pressure away from the sit bones. This allows you to sit upright without needing to shift, cross your legs, fidget, and allows you to optimize your focus and performance throughout the day.
3 4D Arm Rests
The 4D arm rests can be adjusted to the optimal position for any individual and allows you to get as close to your work surface as possible without interference. This provides the best possible task position for focus and performance.
4 Relaxing in Tilt Cushion
With typical chairs, the resting position is reclined. The problem is that reclining causes the pelvis to roll backward, which results in a slouched, rounded posture. In contrast, the seat and back move back together in tilt, holding the pelvis in neutral which maintains an aligned posture.
If you are looking to improve posture while sitting, look no further than Anthros.
Anthros is the only chair in the world that is guaranteed to improve posture or your money back. The science-backed, patented design is registered with the FDA as a posture-improving chair and is proven to have the lowest pressure (most comfortable) cushion on the planet (verified by university testing).
