    SpinaliS chair allows continuous movement of the pelvis

    In the last decade factories have produced a wide variety of chairs (Gugu chair) and devices (ball, wedge-shaped pillow) to make it easier to sit longer without pain. Sitting must be repeatedly interrupted or the sitting position altered. When we listen to someone we are in contact with the backrest of the chair (Seat surface is tilted back) and when we write, we move away (Seat surface is tilted forward). The pelvis has an important role in sitting because with every inclination the position of the spine also changes. So we have make sure we have strong muscles in the body, which will  care that the distance between the pubic bone and the sternum is the same all the time (in all modes of seating) and not to allow this distance to close, or bend the spine and not to allow sitting to tire us.

    A therapeutic ball and SpinaliS chair allow for constant movement of the pelvis which is very important because the correct position of the pelvis and spine affect breathing and digestion, strengthen muscles while encouraging proper posture and body balance.

    SpinaliS is an excellent ergonomic solution. In the middle, the riding position, the seat with a spring requires constant adjustment of vertebral muscles and maintaining balance and thus upright posture with both continuous vertebral muscle activity. Sitting in the rear position (resting position), provides the best ergonomic solution to sit.

    From personal experience I can confirm the great advantages of SpinaliS over other chairs. SpinaliS chairs work. For thirty years I have been suffering from pain in my lower back, and over the past 12 years I have had three strong attacks of lumbo ishialgia I have dealt with it by physical therapy and regular exercise. After my last attack, six months ago, I decide to have an operation on my intervertebral disks.

    I have been using it for 5 months now I do not get back pain, which I had previously after prolonged sitting. Therefore I can recommend SpinaliS chair to anyone who suffers from pain in his lower back, and prevention to anyone in business who is exposed to prolonged sitting.

    SpinaliS is important for preventive measures

    The idea of ​​constructing a chair with a moving base or moving seat seems to me to be one of the very important things in preventing the degeneration of the discs. Because of the constant movement of the seat back muscles have to work constantly, so there is no unilateral burdening of the spine and l discs, but the burden is distributed to the entire spinal area, sometimes more on one side, sometimes more on the other.

    I would recommend this chair to patients with low back pain and other parts of the spine, especially for people who sit a lot or are in a forced sitting position at work, to prevent the most frequent problems related to the spine. It seems to me that this is one of the important preventive measures to reduce spinal problems.

    I recommend the chair to all who sit a long time 

    Society is becoming sedentary, children sit in school and at home.  They sit while doing their homework, sit at computers for hours or while watching TV. The same applies to adults and the elderly. We have given up in actively shaping our bodies

    If you want to feel comfortable while sitting, we need to strengthen those muscles that support the spine. We must also support both natural curves of the spine, which is important to sit properly, which means active sitting. With long-term forced sitting primary school pupils, in particular, sit improperly. Over years this may lead to an improper sitting posture. The risk of becoming one of the many patients with spinal problems is here. For many years, sitting on large rubber balls has been recommended. Sitting on the ball activates the body to seek and maintain balance. This strengthens the previously described muscles.

    Continuous movement which is required while sitting on SpinaliS strengthens the back muscles, while the vertebrae and inter-vertebral discs are evenly burdened. With active sitting we can prevent spinal injury. I recommend the SpinaliS chair to all who sit a long time, especially if you sit in improper and awkward positions.

    I can very positively grade the use of the SpinaliS chair

    I use SpinaliS in my work in the eye clinic and for eye surgeries. In the clinic I have a lot of movements that especially strains the lumbar part of the spine.

    The great flexibility of SpinaliS allows me to have the chair seat follow the movements of the spine. The SpinaliS chair relieves the burden on the back and distributes it evenly. Using SpinaliS, in my experience, has indirectly strengthened my back muscles and allowed me to stretch while sitting for several hours. In addition, a great mobile chair enables the continuous adaptation of the entire body to help me and my approach to operating.

    The chair is also used by assistants who are also very positive regarding its use. One is constantly encouraged to be active using the entire spine and back muscles while sitting. Thus, despite sitting we strengthen our back muscles the spine is constantly in motion and thus indirectly exercises.

    Stol SpinaliS toplo priporočam vsaki bodoči mamici

    Sem mamica dveh otrok in med drugo nosečnostjo sem ves čas vodila ginekološko ambulanto, doma pa so me čakale še običajne vsakodnevne obveznosti. Morda sem se ravno zaradi stola Spinalis, redne vsakodnevne vadbe, ki pa časovno ni presegla 15 minut, v nosečnosti počutila izredno dobro.

    Stol SpinaliS toplo priporočam vsaki bodoči mamici, saj vsaka lepa ura v nosečnosti pomeni veliko več kot ostale ure v življenju.
