The "Central Journal for Occupational Medicine, Occupational Health and Safety and Ergonomics 2/2009" published the study conducted by Dr. Fritz Andreas Schön and Dr. Dieter Preim on dynamic sitting under various workplace conditions. It highlights the fact that the technical features of the office chair play a key role in determining the way that a person sits on it.
Research proves that dynamic sitting in a balanced seated posture with an average seat-tilt angle of -8° is optimum.
If employees who work at workstations in an office or use a computer frequently and regularly adopt static seated postures, this can cause muscular tension and problems associated with the spinal column. It is thus better to adopt the correct seated posture!
