Sitting is the preferred position for reading and computer work, but sitting motionless is unhealthy.  Our body is designed for motion, and we need movement throughout the day to support a healthy metabolism and a strong, supple back.  But what kind of movement?

Posture's most important motion

The human body has one primary strategy for movement: bipedal locomotion.  This means that the supporting muscles and structures of the spine are highly adapted to the constant alternation of force from side to side, and research has identified this motion as key to back health.  Sitting motionless fatigues your back muscles, leading to slumped sitting postures and a stressed lower back.  The Core-flex seat allows just enough movement to tilt the pelvis and stimulate muscles of the legs and core.  The results are greater comfort, an active core, better posture, and more calories burned, for every minute that you're sitting.

Modern office chairs: the wrong kind of motion

The need for movement is well known within the seating industry, yet for 50 years the only type of postural change available in office chairs has been the backwards tilt or recline. Reclining is a way to rest more comfortably, but it is not an actual activity. Reclining is passive: it does not activate muscles and spinal structures, or stimulate the metabolism. In fact, time spent reclining in the sitting position is strongly associated with sedentary metabolic syndrome, a concentration of risk factors for diseases including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, colon and breast cancer, and obesity. This is where we get the (somewhat exaggerated) expression: “your office chair is killing you”. Clearly, the solution to sitting’s health challenges is not more reclining!

Only Core-flex chairs give your body the right kind of natural motion, all day long.

Faster Injury Recovery

"The consensus from my staff and patients has been, 'I can sit longer at work with no pain,' and 'my results have improved since I got the Core-flex chair.'"

"Work related duties such as sitting all day can and will erase the positive benefits the patients are working so hard to change. However, I've found that the patients who've acquired the Core-flex chairs, in conjunction with their rehab exercises, have seen faster results with their road to recovery."

"We empower our patients through education and training to strengthen their spines with home and in office exercises in order to make a positive change in their body."
