How can I use my RockBack chair?
There are three ways of sitting on our chairs.
- Active sitting relies on core spinal muscles to sit upright (other examples include a kneeling chair).
- Passive sitting involves relaxed sitting ideally sitting upright with good support from the seat and back.
- Dynamic sitting is beneficial to healthy sitting as it stimulates muscles and circulation.
The RockBack chair in the tilted forward position, with your feet behind you (if you are tall) or in front of you creates an excellent active sitting position. The curved seat enables the knees to be below the hips which encourages the spine to create its natural curvature.
The RockBack chair in the rocked back position enables passive sitting with good posture. The curved seat makes it very difficult to slump in the chair and the back support is in exactly the right place to provide comfortable support. The combination of memory foam on top of a firm foam in the seat makes sitting very comfortable.
The RockBack chair offers the ability to rock backwards and forwards. This enables dynamic sitting which stimulates different muscles and aids blood circulation. The RockBack movement has been described as “relaxing” or “hypnotic”.
