Nowadays a growing number of children and teenagers spend a lot of time working at their computers and not having a suitable amount of physical activities. It is no wonder that, according to statistics, as many as 2/3 of school-aged children suffer from backache. The spine develops until the kids stop growing (approx. between 15 to 18 years of age), with all the defects becoming irreversible after that. For that reason it is immensely important to pay attention to children, whose spines can be positively or negatively affected.
Ordinary children's chairs
Plain children's chairs and ergonomic children's chairs do not help children in the event of occurrence of backache because of their design. Such children's chairs fit the most common child's proportions and allow adjustment and regulation, however, as far as ergonomic chairs for children are concerned including their formed upholstering of backrest and seat, the muscles providing for correct bodily postures droop. After some time, children who sit on such chairs start to fidget, rock or kneel, for they need to move, and change their body position quite often – even more frequently than adults.
SpinaliS healthy children's chairs
A very effective means for fidgeting and, at the same time, against backache is offered by SpinaliS healthy children's chairs. By means of a patented seat on a spring, SpinaliS children's chairs make children sitting straight subconsciously even for long hours, and additionally, they allow for frequent position changing and active moving. They also bring additional benefits such as an enhanced concentration while studying or reading, because the child's physical energy (fidgeting) is transferred to a movable seat. With every single child's movement, the seat of the child's chair bends forward or sideways, making the body finding its balance and returning to its natural and optimal position. During sitting on a SpinaliS child's chair the back muscles are active, which otherwise may droop. Backache disappears and straight position is kept. We kindly invite you to watch a short visualisation presenting the advantages of a SpinaliS movable seat and its impact on the body.
