Frequently Asked Questions about SpinaliS

Why is SpinaliS so special?

Because it follows the movement of the body, it keeps the spine in balance. This is provided by a moveable seat which moves in all directions. According to body movement the seat moves in the direction of the pelvis and spine and so, it maintains the spine in the correct position all the time.

Why should everyone have their own SpinaliS?

Due to proper sitting the muscles are active all the time. Vertebrae and disks are thus relieved which prevents injuries and spinal pain. Only the healthy ones can fully enjoy life.

Sitting in a SpinaliS chair seems pretty unstable.

At first this may seem true, but after a few days of active sitting the SpinaliS becomes very comfortable. Adapting to the SpinaliS feels strange at the beginning because we are used to conventional chairs with a fixed seat. You sit with relaxed back muscles leading to a back injury. Sitting on a SpinaliS can be compared to sitting on a therapeutic ball, where you maintain balance at all times. Although it is difficult to realize it at the beginning, you will get used to active sitting very quickly.

If the muscles are constantly active, are you more tired at the end of the day than in a usual chair?

At first glance it seems so and for the first few days this is true. It is similar to running a marathon out of shape. How would you feel the next day? Even sitting on a SpinaliS requires some effort the first few days because the body needs time to get used to active sitting. When the muscles are strengthened, sitting on the SpinaliS becomes a real pleasure. Strong back muscles play a key role in supporting the spine and your back does not hurt even after sitting ten hours or more on the SpinaliS.

Has it been medically confirmed that this chair "works"?

Many clinical tests with therapeutic balls have shown that active sitting is the only beneficial way of sitting. Active sitting is the basic idea of SpinaliS chairs. Simultaneous movements of the pelvis and spine activate the muscles, thereby preventing improper movement - the most common cause of injuries and back pain. Positive opinions of many physicians support the efficacy of SpinaliS. This is also supported by many statements of satisfied users.

How long will I need to get used to this chair?

It depends on the current physical condition of your back support muscles. On average, the first phase is a few hours, while the second phase can last from several days to two weeks until the muscles strengthen and assume the role of carrying the weight. After two or three days you may experience slight pain, muscle inflammation, or so-called muscle fever, which usually takes a day or two. This is a normal reaction to activity and is actually a great sign, because it means that the muscles that were previously inactive have begun to take on the role of carrying the spine. After this phase, sitting on a SpinaliS becomes an immense pleasure.

Is this chair suitable for sitting all day?

Not only it is convenient, but it is even highly recommended. SpinaliS is intended for those who sit more than two hours a day, preventing injuries and illnesses arising from prolonged sitting on conventional chairs with a fixed seat. It is particularly recommended for children and adolescents who are sitting more and more while learning or in front of the computer, whose back muscles are not strong enough to support the spine due to lack of movement and rapid growth.

Who manufactures SpinaliS chairs?

SpinaliS chairs are the result of domestic, Slovenian development. It is an original innovative patent of Tomaz Ham, owner of HAM LLC. The overall production, with the exception of two items, takes place in Slovenia under the control of HAM LLC in cooperation with sub-contractors.

Do you recommend the chair to persons with a damaged spine?

We recommend that users with an impaired spine (especially serious injuries, after surgery or with a complex diagnosis) first consult their orthopaedist to advice, if it is suitable for them to use therapeutic balls or SpinaliS.

How should the SpinaliS be maintained? What about service?

SpinaliS chairs do not need special maintenance, however, they can be wiped with a damp cloth and mild detergent occasionally or when needed. All the vital parts and complete structure of the chair are made of metal, which greatly reduces the possibility of damage and ensures exceptionally long life - 7 years at least. Potential problems shall be fixed within a few days.

What guarantee does SpinaliS have?

SpinaliS offers a three-year warranty which recognizes the functionality of the chair. The warranty does not cover damage to the fabric by a sharp object. Otherwise, the normal life of the SpinaliS chair is 7 years and more.

Why is SpinaliS more expensive than other chairs?

SpinaliS is impossible to compare to other chairs that do not allow for active sitting. Good health cannot be bought, but you can invest in SpinaliS and begin to live without back pain. SpinaliS is tested and the opinions of thousands of users attest to its value and price. When we compare to the value of our health, such an investment is worthwhile. If you calculate how much money we set aside for physiotherapists, visiting the doctor or even self-paid medical intervention, not to mention absenteeism and related loss of earnings.

Does SpinaliS really work "miracles"?

SpinaliS does not have magical powers which could heal all spinal problems, but it is true that in most cases it greatly reduces or even eliminates back pain.
