Workplace Injuries

According to Eurostat, 40 per cent of workers are exposed to factors that negatively affect their physical health in the European Union countries, while 27 per cent ​​have negative effects on the psyche.

Among diseases back injury (28 per cent) is in the first place, pain in the neck, shoulders and arms (19 per cent), and in third place we find stress and depression (14 per cent). If we connect the first two groups into a single category of 'back injury' we can see that almost half (47 per cent) of all injuries are associated with spine injuries!

According to a renowned orthopaedic Prof. Popovic, MD., the SpinaliS chair is an important preventive factor to prevent back injury.

  • Back injuries - 28 per cent
  • Pain in the neck and shoulders - 19 per cent
  • Stress - 14 per cent
  • Foot - 11 per cent
  • Cardiovascular disease - 8 per cent
  • Breathing problems - 6 per cent
  • Headaches, eye diseases - 5 per cent
  • Infections - 4 per cent
  • Defective hearing - 3 per cent
  • Skin diseases - 2 per cent

WHY May Sitting on a Chair with a Fixed Seat Be Harmful?

Admit it: only few of us are disciplined enough to control our posture and correct into the proper position while sitting on a chair with a fixed seat. Even on the so-called modern ergonomic chairs we "crouch" sooner or later, the back bends, and back muscles slowly begin to weaken. Since inadequate chairs allow us to sit incorrectly, we do improper movements and persist with improper posture.

The consequences of improper sitting are often hidden, but very unpleasant and long-lasting

  • Curved spine
  • Weakened back muscles
  • Loose and weakened back ligaments
  • Damaged intervertebral discs
  • Worn out joints
  • Back pain, low back and shoulder girdles
  • Increased irritability
  • Decreased well-being
  • Lower productivity
  • Poor circulation
  • Fatigue
  • Depression

How about you? How long do you sit?  

Most jobs are sedentary. We sit every day for at least 8 hours in a forced position. After work we sit in the car, at the computer and on the couch, and the result is: sitting in an inappropriate position for nearly 15 hours a day!

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 discs, however, the burden is distributed to the entire spinal area, sometimes more on one side, sometimes more on the other.

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