Proper neck and back support is important in all aspects of life - sleeping, standing, lifting, and sitting. It is particularly important for people that suffer from back and neck agony. But what about the times when you're not sleeping, standing, lifting, or sitting? What about when you are relaxing?
Lounging in a chair or on the settee doesn't relieve the pressure placed on your back. In fact, it adds to the strain on your back and neck. It is not practical to sit upright in a labor-saving office chair or to stand in your living room when you are relaxing after dinner or reading a novel.
one answer to this problem is a zero gravity chair. The anti gravity chairs is ergonomically built to recline to a point where stress on the spine is relieved.
0 gravity recline is a technique that was developed by NASA to attenuate force exerted on astronauts' spines during takeoff. In an upright position, either standing or sitting, gravity places force on the backbone. This causes the discs to compact and muscles to contract to maintain balance. When gravity is neutralised, back muscles rest and the discs return to their normal shape and size.
zero gravity outdoor recliner extend the lower legs above the heart to achieve this neutralized gravity effect on the back. This leads to :
- correct spinal alignment
- reduced pressure on the back
- less muscle tension
- less pressure on the heart
- better circulation
The 0 gravity position is also known as the'90/90' position thanks to the right angles formed at the hips and knees. This puts you backbone in the proper resting position where it forms an S-curve. In this position virtually all force on the lower back is eliminated.
Look for a 0 gravity chair that reclines smoothly and returns to an upright position easily. 0 gravity recliners frequently come with adjustable headrests and neck rolls. Also consider a chair that includes inbuilt massage. Other features include a lumbar pillow, power recline, adjustable footrest, and memory plastic cushioning.
