Russian Chairs To Reduce Spinal Strain: A Couch Potato’s Dream

Where is Belgorod in terms of the rest of Russia?

 

 

Belgorad is a city in Western Russia situated on the Seversky Donets River, which is some 40 kilometers (about 25 miles) north from the Ukrainian border. Its name derives from the Slavic, meaning ‘White City’ because the region is rich in limestone.

What is so special about these new chairs from Belgorod?


The design on these new chairs is quite simple; so simple in fact, that it is a mystery as to why no one ever thought of the idea before. An ordinary chair has a flat seat that is usually covered with something soft. According to news sources, the new seating innovation either lacks part of its seat or bends under the weight of a seated person. The brilliance of such a construction is that by its very nature it eliminates excessive strain and thus helps avoiding compression of the spinal column and spinal nerve entrapment.

What kind of problems can occur from sitting in a chair where the spine is not relaxed?


The problem with most chairs is that their angles and shapes tend to tip the pelvis backwards. Almost every one has a slumped pelvis when sitting upright. The more the pelvis slumps, the more pressure it puts on the discs, and the longer one sits in this position the worse the damage gets. When a spine is strained, three major problems can occur: dull, chronic backache from tense muscles (lumbago), sudden, acute back pain usually brought on by bending, lifting or twisting and herniated (slipped) discs and sciatica, which are also induced by bending or lifting.

Medical experts have confirmed that these chairs are a great help to patients suffering from spinal injures. They also improve blood circulation, which is very important.

Where can you buy one of these chairs?


I have no idea, but if you find out, will you let me know?

To me, that just looks like

To me, that just looks like an antique chair that lost its seat pad. Someone in the market for a chair like this would do good to check out a flea market or antique shop, I'd imagine there would be many existing chairs with removable pads, or with their pads already removed.

I agree and you raise a good point. It was the only picture I could find connected with the subject matter and I  thought it looked odd too.

Thanks for your thoughts.
