Working from Home? We Have the ‘Perfect Chair’ for Your Home Office

With the COVID-19 crisis putting most countries on lockdown, more people are working from home than ever before. For many of us, setting up a home office has been a tricky process. 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.

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

In the zero gravity position, the legs are elevated above the heart while the shoulders and head are also slightly elevated. It may sound like a strange way to sit or sleep in, but the position was designed by NASA 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 we perform repetitive motions that strain our backs.

The zero gravity position takes 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 chair can also help decompress your spine to alleviate these problems.

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.

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.

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 Versatile Home Office Asset

Perfect Chairs are just as versatile as they are comfortable.

With our Laptop Desk accessory, you can instantly transform your chair into the perfect home office chair. Our PC-LiVE™ chair, part of our Perfect Chair collection, is designed to distribute your weight evenly across the entire seat to eliminate uncomfortable and painful pressure points. This makes it easier to comfortably work from your chair, even for extended periods of time.

With zero gravity, maximum adjustability and the finest craftsmanship, Perfect Chairs make it easy and comfortable to work from home.

Even after you return to our office, your Perfect Chair will be there to greet you after work and help you relax after a long day.
