Choosing the Right Seat
A good work chair should be:
How long will you be using the chair for?
fit for or the intended purpose, enabling you to move
freely and carry out tasks comfortably and
● supportive of your body
● suited to your work,
especially the height you are working at e.g. the
height of the treatment couch, therapy chair or
● suited to the layout of the
room where you are working
e.g. if its a smaller
compact working space
● occasionally - less than
2 hours a day
working part time - between 2-4 hours a day
working full time - more
than 4 hours a day
The longer you're
using the chair the more adjustable features you'll
need. All the adjustable features should be in easy
reach and you should be able to operate them while
seated and with minimal effort.
Features to consider
An important feature as the height needs to be
adjustable to accommodate different users and techniques
and to ensure a correct seated posture - all our
seating is height adjustable.
Ideally your feet should be planted squarely on the
floor without compressing the back of your thighs.
Compression on the back of your thighs can restrict
blood supply to your lower legs and feet and this can be
due to the incorrect height of your seat and also the
shape of the seat pad- see our
If in particular you are working at a couch or work
station that you cannot adjust in height you will need
to alter the height of your chair accordingly so you can
work at a comfortable position without compromising your
posture, or having to stretch your arms so it puts
pressure on your back. You should also ensure your feet
touch the floor or if not, use one of our

You may need to support the
weight of your arms, depending on the type of treatments you
are carrying out and the length of time you will be
sitting in the chair.
On certain seat models we
offer adjustable arm rests which are fully adjustable.
They will also lower when not in use.

Traditional style chairs available with armrest supports
All our seats offer a
backrest option which is shaped to support the lower and
middle back. All our backrests are adjustable and will
tilt- this ensures you can adopt different positions and
postures e.g. upright or semi-reclined. Ideally the
angle between your thighs and your back should be around
95 to 105 degrees to ensure your abdomen and chest are
not compressed, letting you breathe better and sending
more oxygen to your muscles.
Dynamic sitting - our backrests feature a pivot hinge to
provide free float tilting for maximum lumbar comfort.
With this mechanism (it can be switched on/off)
the backrest will
freely move with the weight of your back, so as you lean
backwards or forwards to work the lumber support will move with you.
An important feature and included on all our seating
models, the 360 degree swivel will allow you to
turn and reach other areas such as a trolley or workstation
without twisting your back.
The seat depth should allow you to sit right at the back
of the chair without pressing on the back of your knees.
You will need to sit right at the back of a chair to use
the backrest correctly and get the optimum lumber
support from the backrest.
If you want to make your seat depth larger
than standard, we offer an
optional extra width
on our seat pads.
Our larger seat pads will
also accommodate the larger sized person and ensure full
support when seated.
Coverings & Padding
Padding should be firm enough to
support and cushioned enough for comfort - our seat
padding has a double layered foam system
consisting of a supporting base layer of high density
foam to provide a durable and shape retentive solid
foundation, topped with a cushioning layer of medium
density foam for receptive comfort. On selected models
we also offer extra thick foam padding - see our
double layered foam padding

Thickly padded tub seating -
for operator comfort and wellbeing.
On all our seating you can opt for
an additional anatomic memory foam layer. The temperature sensitive foam layer (used in
conjunction with a high grade foam base layer) moulds to
the body shape and temperature and provides excellent
weight distribution while offering support, comfort and pressure relief.

Posture Saddle Seating
Our innovative collection of saddle stools are
ergonomically designed to give the seated operator the
ideal sitting position. The unique saddle shape helps
maintain posture and support the seated operator to
alleviate neck, shoulder and lower back pain; reduce
aching in wrists and arms and improve blood flow.
Saddle seats are ergonomically designed to support the
seated operator and promote healthy posture.

distributes bodyweight more evenly, providing a
natural anatomical balance and promoting optimal
healthy seated posture.

shaped seat gives maximum support and maintains your
natural spine curve by keeping your pelvis rotated
forwards and your back hollow. It permits the pelvis
to be held securely in its natural position so that,
when leaning forward to work, the lean is from the
hips and not the waist.
