Aisha Graves. Chair. October 01st , 2017.
Glide System: The Stressless chair uses gliding wheels to take the chair from an upright to reclined position and back again. Rather than springing you back and forth with a traditional lever mechanism, the chair simply relies on your body weight and cues to tell it when to sit up and to recline.
If you sit at a desk for for a long time, whether at work or at home, you could benefit a lot from an ergonomic office chair. You may not feel any problems now, but staying sitting in a badly planned chair, and see in no time the back and neck pain to start, and then you will wish that you had made the switch long ago .
Back to the Chair: On your ergonomic office chair, it is important to remember that you need to use it properly to reap the benefits. If it is adjustable, adjust it to where it is able to support your lower and mid back. A head-rest may be there to help you support your head and keep you from assuming a forward head carriage position. If there are armrests, use them. If your shoulders are rolling forward, learn to bring them close to the backrest of your chair. Remember, the way you use your body affects the way you live, and learning desk ergonomics can help you live a healthier lifestyle!
An alternative to untreated wood is painted or weather treated wood. This extends the durability of the rocking chair and can make the chair weatherproof. Some people will prime and paint the untreated wood and that will help it last several more years. A water sealant can also be added to untreated wood, but will have to be reapplied every year.
The glide wheels are great, move smoothly and make for a much easier transition than springs. However, the wheels make a small noise as you recline the chair, leading this reviewer to believe that the sound could turn into an annoyance after years of use.
