Why You Should Choose a Zero Gravity Chair for Your Home Office

With the COVID-19 crisis putting most countries on lockdown, more people are working from home than ever before. Setting up a home office has been a tricky process for many of us. Along with finding a designated place to work, you also have to consider the ergonomics of the space. The goal is to create a home office that's comfortable to work in without causing back pain or strain.

A zero gravity workstation is a great option, especially if you suffer from constant pain when sitting.

Investing in an ergonomic office chair is a great place to start. The Human Touch Perfect Chair® is ideal for any home office setting. Our Perfect Chairs may not look like the conventional office chair, but they offer the comfort and ergonomic design needed to work safely and comfortably from home.

Experience the Benefits of Zero Gravity

The legs are elevated above the heart in the zero gravity position, while the shoulders and head are also slightly elevated. It may sound like a strange way to sit or sleep in, but NASA designed the position as a way to take pressure off the spine when astronauts are launched into space.

You may find it interesting to know that this is also the position your body naturally takes when in a zero gravity environment, such as floating in a pool of water.

Back Pain Relief

Many of us suffer from lower back pain because we sit at a desk all day or perform repetitive motions that strain our backs.

The zero gravity position takes the pressure off the spine, specifically the lower back. Once that pressure is removed, blood can flow freely to the back to alleviate pain and discomfort.

If you suffer from pinched nerves or muscle tension in your back, a zero gravity office chair can also help decompress your spine to alleviate these problems.

A few of the ways that an ergonomic office chair helps alleviate back pain are:

  • Tilt tension
  • Sturdy yet comfortable seat cushion to promote better posture
  • Height adjustable settings to ensure proper foot placement
  • Adjustable armrests to further promote good posture

When you're sitting for long hours, adjustable features help take the strain off of your back. It's better to invest in zero gravity computer chair that may cost more than other models but doesn't leave you with an aching back day and night.

Plus, the right zero gravity chair will last a long time and can be written off if you own a business.

Less Stress on the Heart

Along with taking pressure off the spine, zero gravity also takes pressure off the heart, allowing it to work more efficiently and improving circulation. In this position, your heart doesn't have to work so hard to pump against the power of gravity, so blood can flow more freely.

If you have fibromyalgia, lower stress on the heart is crucial to your long-term health.

The best office chairs for fibromyalgia are zero gravity chairs. You'll reduce pain, lower your risk of heart complications and do it all while being more productive.

Better Circulation, Recovery and Pain Relief

Improved circulation will help with recovery from injuries and even muscle growth. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to your organs and muscles. Muscles that receive more blood get more nutrients and oxygen, helping them grow. Injuries also recover more quickly because they receive the oxygen and nutrients they need to heal.

Zero gravity is also an effective way to alleviate pain. Along with taking pressure off painful areas, improved circulation reduces or even eliminates pain.

In fact, a 2014 study from Portland Research Group highlighted the effectiveness of zero gravity and Human Touch's Perfect Chairs on pain.

  • * 41% of people taking pain medication before their chair purchase took less pain medication after purchasing a Perfect Chair.
  • * 17% stopped taking pain medication entirely.
  • * 74% of owners said they would recommend Perfect Chair to other people.

Do zero gravity chairs help back pain? Yes, but they also help relieve general pain, too. There are chairs for back pain specifically, yet a zero gravity desk or chair will reduce pain in the entire spine and other joints.

Relaxed Muscles

Working from home can be stressful, even if your home office is in your living room.

The zero gravity position helps take pressure off muscles, allowing them to relax and alleviating tension. When the body is in a total state of relaxation, you also enjoy a deeper, more restful sleep.

A reclining desk or reclining computer workstation helps take strain off of your muscles, joints and back. When you sit in a reclining desk chair workstation, you're actively promoting less stress and tension on the muscles.

If any of the following hurt or are sore after long work hours, a zero gravity reclining office chair can help:

  • Neck
  • Back
  • Shoulders

Plus, the mesh fabric is comfortable to sit in for long periods of time and very durable.
